    Oh! Good old days eh?
    In random order:

    Duck Hunt
    Street Fighter 2
    Cadillacs & Dinosaurs
    Final Fight
    Monkey Island 1
    Another World
    Prince Of Persia

    And used to have a text based football game in my atari... Can't remember the name of it but it was all in Japanese... So it takes a trial-error way to learn which ones are shoot and which ones are pass etc. Anyone know the name? I really want to find that game it freaking rocks!!!

    Sentinel Worlds. It was basicly the first computer game I played. It was already well past its prime by the time I got my filthy former soviet hands on it, but I still fire it up to this day and enjoy its simple glory.

    KGB was the most sadistic adventure game ever. Can't even count the times i did something wrong and got trounced by a 9-foot gay bouncer.

    Full throttle? It has huge amounts of coolness and great quick jokes.

    Ben:" Nice nose ring."
    Bartender: *grunt*
    Ben:"You know what else would look good on your nose?"
    Ben:"The bar"

    UFO: Enemy Unknown (or x-com 1) still rocks my very being. I was fucking hooked on the game in elementary school.

    "Ben: You know what might look better on yer nose?
    Quohog: What?
    Ben (grabs Quohog by his nose ring and pulls him down, his (Ben's) clenched fist hitting the bar below): The bar.

    I remember most of the game's text by heart, actually. The intro monologue still gives me shivers when I think about it, best intro ever.

    (Camera first shows the familiar Lucas Arts logo with sky in the background. Then the logo disappears and camera descends, showing a road from isometric perspective. A deep voice - which, as we later learn, belongs to the main character - is speaking.)

    "Whenever I smell asphalt, I think of Maureen. That's the last sensation I had before I blacked out - that thick smell of asphalt. And the first thing I saw when I woke up was her face.

    She said she'd fix my bike. For free. No strings attached. I should've known then that things are never that simple.

    Yeah, when I think of Maureen, I think of two things. Asphalt... and trouble."

    (The camera is now at road level and for a brief moment everything is quiet. Then, all of a sudden, a huge white limo flies over the camera! Two old people argue inside.)

    "Corley: Ripburger, you're dumber than dirt!
    Ripburger: But Mr. Corley, if you'd only listen to my plan! My vision!
    Corley: I know your plan, Ripburger! You're waitin' for me to die so you can take over my company!
    Ripburger: (chuckle) Sir, that's horrible. I'm not waiting for you to *die*!
    Corley: You know I never liked you, Rip. But you've got business know-how and killer instincts that I respect.
    Ripburger: Why... thank you, sir.
    Corley: But this latest idea of yours... Ridin' up to our shareholders' meeting with a gang of *bikers*? Who do you think you're foolin'?
    Ripburger: The shareholders, sir. It's good PR to be seen hobnobbing with real Corley Motors customers.
    Corley: Whaddya know about our customers, Adrian? You've never even *been* on a bike!
    Ripburger: But you know I'd be riding on one right now, sir, if it weren't for my destabilizing inner-ear condition.
    Corley: Ah, your ears are fine! It's what's between them that scares me."

    (Then, the main character, Ben, comes from behind the limo on his bike and *rides over the roof*! At this point, the intro tune "Legacy" is playing and I'm pissing my pants in excitement.)

    Ah... a damn good game that was...

    It's like the Jebus of video games.

    I remember this old police game on the NES, I think it was called Dragnet. Anyways, you chased down criminals, from speeders to mob bosses and drug dealers. Really fun game, but it got very hard towards the end.

    What the fuck is wrong with you? Go find a copy. eBay that shit or something. Quite simply one of the greatest games ever made, ever. Definitely the cream of the LucasArts adventure games crop.

    I was faintly relieved to see FT2 cancelled... it could have never lived up to original and would have tainted its (FT) memory.

    Anyway, favourite game...

    C64 - Rolling Thunder, Space Rouge

    Amiga - Hunter, StarFlight 1&2, MegaTraveller 1&2, Civ

    Chrono Trigger
    Super Mario RPG
    Shadowrun (on both the SNES and the sega genesis, both we're really good for especially for old games and I think they should make another one)
    Road Rage
    and of course Full Throttle

    all extremely great classics especiallty full throttle, that game blew my mind when I played it (I was only like 8 I believe)

    and graz'zt you're memory of the intro sequence makes me wish I still knew where my old copy of the game I had was..I want to play it so much right now
