    Bubble Bobble. There was a time when I could consistently reach the upper fifty to eighty levels on one quarter.

    Spy Hunter. I could play for a half an hour on one quarter.

    Wolfenstein 3D Shareware introduced me to the genre. Doom was always my favorite but the sprites are charming.

    Several but Laser Squad was pretty good. They are still making games based on the same principle, and the newer versions of X-Com might actually be inferior.

    I like it when old threads get reborn seeing as this one was dead for 13 years, it keeps the place alive instead of just having a giant pile of old dead threads that have no purpose anymore.

    And just to keep on topic, Pokemon is the best childhood game and is a right of passage in my opinion

    One of my favorites and that lead me to self learn english (so I could understand what they were saying) was Sid Meier's Pirates on the NES:

    I miss when games had covers like this:

    Gears of War wasn't even out yet when this thread originally died.

    Showing my (young) age here, but Pokemon Silver was my favorite back in the day. It was pretty much the only game I had, and I didn't mind one bit.

    The music and the artwork is still incredible to me.

    Oh, I like playing computer games, I was great fan of them in my teenage years and I still play them time till time, however now that happens not too often because adult life is much busier :p
    My the most favourite one is Half Life 2, in my opinion it's the best games which had been ever made. I played it so many times and I dream about releasing third episode some day. They should end that amazing plot! :)
    I also like GTA, Hitman and Alien VS Predator series, the last one from them was really good. BloodRayne is my favourite too, in my opinion it's one of the best ones in case of main female character. Chaser, Thief and Prey are good ones too.
    I like some mmorgs too, especially Cabal, Shaiya and World of Warcraft. But I don't play them often because I don't like much that donating thing for such types of games.
    And I adore virtual gambling, especially this and card games, it's a great fun for me too but I've never spent too much money on such games.

    /Edit by mod: There was a casino link in there, if this is a spambot after all it's certainly one of the better ones I've seen :D
