trillianjedi...I think I love you. :) I'm slightly geeky as far as web stuff goes, but so not geeky as far as gaming goes. I looked for Zombies Ate My Neighbors a few years ago on eBay and decided I shouldn't buy a really old system *and* a really old game. Hmmm, now that I think of it, I was really really poor then. But cool, I can play it again tonight. Wait 'til I send the link to my partner in Zombie crime. There was one level we never beat.
[ETA - aw, those sites either don't have the download anymore or are gone. At least I know what I'm looking for now though]
ELITE. Absolutely incredible game. Wire-drawn graphics, intergalactic trading and hyperspace... ahhh... those were the days.
Not to mention 2.000 different planets on one disk :-)
There is a Java-based Elite emulator at:
Just no place to plug-in my quickshot 2 :-)... great link! (wow,I can still dock manually, i guess this is like bicycling, you never unlearn)

Hmmm.... sorry - those links were from a while ago.
Search google for "SNES emulator PC" (or whatever platform) and I would also try "SNES zombies.zip".
They'll be there somewhere - I used to have loads of the old SNES (and Atari) stuff running on emulators.
Regression is the way forward!
(Let me know if you find the right sites)
Zombies Ate My Neighbors was a great game. I remember playing it for hours at a time and laughing with my friends the whole way.
My current favorites:
GTA Vice City
Metal Gear Solid 2
you can play games on computers? :o
actually the pinball game on NT 4.0 hooked me for a while. And that stupid elf bowling game..
I once did an internship in France, at a time when the web was practically unknown there. Only game I had was minesweeper... Spent hours playing that and got unbeatable high scores.
Digdug and Boulderdash were both missed off my list, which is unforgivable. Boulderdash was fantastic.
(I went looking for a flash version of DigDug the other week, but all I could find was scabby Java. :( )
atadams, that is fantastic. Weird thing is my fingers still know what to do. Even hit hyperspace without thinking about it.
I played on the BBC B though. With external disc drive. So there. ;)
i used to love doom
im sure many of yous remember that and wolfenstein 3d
all of the lucasarts games were great... remember Zak McCracken? (also see www.zak2.org :-))
Go2 RIGHT ON!
in no particular order, but if you have not played these... sheesh!
