    Lets hear about some of your old favorite games...

    So, what games do you have great memories of playing for hours at a time just to pass one level??? I don't have any, but am interested to hear yours.. lol (actually, I am not, but this is what it turned into)

    I remember Day Of The Tentacle! I had the "special" CD-ROM version with all the voices in actual sound instead of the lame speech bubbles...Played that thing for years, until I lent it to a friend and never got it back.

    Okay, I remember "flimbos quest" on the amiga.. as well as "rick dangerous" but most of you probably haven't heard of these..
    still play them with an emulator.. its not the same though.. I want a graphics card with TV out, and a amiga controller adapter..

    Man I used to lay in bed at night and think of things I hadn't tried to do to figure out solving Maniac Mansion on the Commodore 64...I finally gave in and bought a hint book...

    I have not played Maniac Mansion...At that point, I was wrapped up in the 7th Guest. I don't care what anyone says, Myst SUCKED, The 7th Guest was the TRUE "breakthrough" game of that era. Myst was just a half-baked amature clone of Guest...
