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

Mack.

<sidetopic>
After seeing this thread growing and growing i'd like to just drop a quick idea fwiw: imagine running a death mach competiton over the net for WebmasterWorld members - could be a new entertaining event - something happening once a year or so? Sure, only supporters allowed to join, he, he, he. ;) I'd offer to host the server for such a event - fat bandwith guaranteed. If memory serves me right, googleguy is a doom / quake player, no!? Imagine ... >:]

>>Herzog Zwei

That was a great game. Street fighter and Tony hawk were great also. Warcraft and Diablo were also favs on the computer.

I was also addicted to Bass Fishing on the dreamcast. I got it as a joke gift from a friend then got totally absorbed in it.

My favorite old classic was river raid. I would play that forever.

Or we could build a MUD where the goal would be not to gain power but SERPs (hmm, or is that the same?). I'm sure we have people here who would know how to set that up.

The Atari 2600. Heh, now we're jogging the old memory.

Favorites would be Deathkarz from a few years back, and Soldier of Fortune from a couple years ago.

Does anyone remember Defender of the Crown? I used to love it, but can't remember if it was on Amiga or C64.

If someone has a PC version of that one, please please please tell me!

Well, I've seen the news Yidaki, but it seems to be a different game trying to cash on the name of the old one.

Better stop this now or we'll have to open yet another thread

I loved a text only adventure called Zut Alors! on the amiga. An absolute classic.

More recently, Black and White had me hooked, IIS Pro Evo soccer is still the best footy game imho and Un real Tournament is the best FPS when all your mates are around for a gaming sesh!

Errm, others that spring to mind are Civilisation (just how many hours of my childhood did I lose to this game?!), The Championship Manager series (how many hours of my adult life have I lost to this game!?) and very recently Micros0ft's 'Rise of Nations' game has given me lots of pleasure.

Ive been away for a while, and thought it best to ease myself back into WebmasterWorld gently. How better else than to start in a gaming foo thread :)

Hehe. Good to be back.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors - I would kill for someone to remake that for either computer or XBox/PS2/GameCube. I loved that game. That and Centipede.

stickledene reminded me...

Civilization was awesome.

And any of the Infocom text adventures, especially the Zorks (back when imagination, not twitchy reactions, still had a part in video games).

And now I'm remembering X-com:UFO Defense. I had a lot of fun with that one!

Zork I-III: *****

I think that's what it was called. Many Saturday afternoons in the local pub playing that game over a few pints of beer. It was twenty odd years ago, but I can almost hear the voice mumbling something.

No need to kill!

Just download a SNES emulator for the PC here:-

www.snes9x.com

And the Zombies Ate My Neighbours ROM binary here:-

Enjoy.

I remember playing that on my old VIC-20. I got really good at it on the VIC, but when I went to the arcade to play it, I got slaughtered.
