What was your favorite childhood computer game

Recommended Posts

Crazyeighties

Okay so this came to mind when I was at the second hand store looking for DVDs I happend to spot a computer game that I remember playing as a young child. So I thought I would ask what were your favorite computer game(s)? When I was about 4 or 5 I loved the "spy fox" or "put-put" games. This was when I was 4 or 5 then we got a "new to us" computer police quest swat came with it I was totally addicted to it

When I was a kid basically LEGO games. I didn't almost play videogames, anyway. I had various LEGO Island, the Legoland, one of explorers whose title I don't remember and another of racing, Lego Racers 2 I think.

 

Then I started getting more serious games. First, I got Search & Rescue 4, a rescue helicopter simulator that I really liked and a sailing one.

I played this all the time in primary school. If I remember the computer labs used to have it installed. That was about 93/94.

I started playing pc games in 97, and some of my early favourite pc games were Tomb Raider, Half-Life, Carmageddon, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Heart of Darkness, Dungeon Keeper, Baldur's Gate and of course, GTA, to name a few.

 

But before that I used to play games on either my SEGA console or my Gameboy.

 

My favorite game by far back in the day, which I played most often was Sonic the Hedgehog.

 

I remember me and my bro also played some sort of WWF game together (one with Shaun Michaels, Bret Hart, Owen Hart (who was later killed when a stunt went wrong at one of the wrestling events. I remember watching it happen), Yokozuma, Undertaker, Vader, Goldust, some clown dude etc). Good times

I remember proclaiming that Driver was the best game ever made.

I never even got to own it until the late years of the PS1.

I know we had a Sega and that I played Sonic, but I can honestly not remembering me playing it, which probably means it was too long ago and I was too young.

 

I can remember playing the SNES, my favorite games there were Biker Mice from Mars, Tiny Toons Wacky Sports, Battletoads, TMNT: Turtles in Time and Street Racer/Rock'n'Roll Racing.

 

But at the same time I was already playing PC games as well, Carmageddon 2, GTA 2, Urban Chaos, Messiah, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Baldur's Gate, Fallout.

 

I'd have to say Carmageddon 2 though, my friends came over to play it when I was younger (they weren't allowed to/didn't have a good enough PC for it/didn't know how to download stuff) and we just laughed out loud at the screen of the random sh*t that happened.

Microsoft 3D Movie Maker, I made some films with that which would be considered "so bad they're good" by today, like this thing I made when I was 8.

 

 

 

Oh my god, this movie is terrible looking back.

Mr. House

The first game I ever played was Super Mario All-Stars for the SNES, so that. I also recall playing a Thomas The Tank Engine game for the SNES, did anyone else ever play that?

I've probably been raised badly because my childhood games (when I was 4-10) were games like

  • Quake I and II
  • Doom (both Quake and Doom on a Windows 95 computer...)
  • GTA III/San Andreas
  • Serious Sam: The First/Second Encounter

However, I did have some kid games too. Mostly on PS2.

  • Sly Cooper-franchise
  • Ratchet and Clank (demo on Sly 2)
  • Gran Turismo 3?

Quake was awesome. I'll always remember the sound effects from that game. But my first ever stand-alone disc game I played Multiplayer in was Serious Sam... it was one great way to learn English Internet slang when being 6-8, lol. Fun fact is, I typed good enough English to pass as a person aged 13+... pretty good for a person who isn't native English and was around 7, eh?

 

Anyway, my all-time favorite "child" games are Sly 2 and 3. I wouldn't really be ashamed to play them even still, but sadly my PS2 has gone to technology heaven.
