For me it has to be Mafia "city of lost heaven"

It's one of those games you just don't want to end. It's almost like a very well made and written movie where you play the leading roll.

Set in the 1930's with acurate car modeling and sound effects coupled with excelent artificial intelegence engine and awsome graphics. Great game that currently has me hooked.

***** << 5 stars

Microsoft Hearts.

I've not really played many games sice I had my ZX Spectrum back in about 1984. On that I loved Manic Miner and Daley Thompsons Decathlon.

"jetpac - 48k speccy ****" - oh yeah I liked that one too!

The only game i've played recently was Age of Empires which got rather addictive.

3 in Three--it was a Mac only game that involved lots of different puzles to solve, including logic and arcade-type puzzles.

I wish I could find a version of it still....

Knighty - Flashback on the Megadrive. Wow, I almost forgot about that!

A classic if ever there was one (like the level where you enter the gameshow of death so that you can return home to Earth ;))

My vote goes to any of the doom/quake family. Playing way too much Quake 3 recently ;)

And having to play with the tone and volume controls.

Jet Set Willy and Jet Pac are my old rubber key spectrum favourites.

Ultimate Games RIP...

All this speccy talk reminded me an old not very good joke:

What do you get when you cross Jet Set Willy with Way of the Exploding Fist?

Can anyone guess the answer?

The level of tone & volume precision required to get a Speccy game to load was beyond belief - how we managed to get it right as kids defies belief!

Daley Thompson's Decathlon on a rubber-keyed 48k anyone?!?...

Deus Ex - The sun never shines in this noir tale.

Hitman 2 - Visit exotic lands, meet interesting people... and k** them.

The interesting thing about H2 is that you're discouraged from whacking anybody but the target. But there are always guards and soldiers getting in the way.

Secret of Mana,
Street fighter 2,
Mario kart,
Zelda: link to the past.

Interestingly, all on the SNES.

Xenon 2 and Turrican on the Sega Megadrive were pretty great, too.

stavs: I remember playing Frontier: Elite II on my amiga 600, but by god it was baffling. I think I was in hyperspace for ten minutes, looking for anything that would clue me the hell up.

Anybody ever play M.U.L.E. on the C64? That was a sweet multiplayer game.

Herzog Zwei on the Genesis was pretty cool, too? I believe it was the first Command-and-Conquer-style "real-time strategy" game. I still have a copy.

For party games, nothing beats Bomberman on the SNES.

But Quake I & II have got to be my favorites.

Yidaki--

I wish I had a million dollars....

Excellent find! Thank you.

I wonder why they say the CD won't run on WindowsXP (which, of course, is what I have now).

If anyone likes to use more brain power than fire power when playing computer games, I highly recommend this.

Damn, if i'd have known that you use xp now, i' wouldn't have done the research to find the download (seriously joking).

If ya need a old mac for your retro gaming moods, drop me a sticky ... joking again, i don't give my ole macs to people who use xp, lol ;)

Now, what was that old Speccy game where you had to move from room to room by building steps, towers, stairs and the like? Your 'player' could split into two.

I liked that.
