Games from your childhood

Postby Messiah » Tue May 15, 2007 2:09 am UTC

Just had a thought while I was reading another thread:

What are the games that stick out from your childhood? If there was a "must-play" list for kids these days, what would you suggest?

My offerings:
Mario Bros. and Duckhunt (they're pretty much givens for most people)
Lemmings (love that game, but I can't find a copy, either legally or illegally...)
Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Or was it called Where on earth? I just remember it being the only game on our school PCs for a while. Many great hours there.
Chronotrigger.Not technically my childhood, I kinda missed it, but was told about it, went back and played it, and....wow.

I loved Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego! I also played Yobi's Basic Spelling Tricks which is an apparently rare BrightStar game, from which I have a lot of great memories.

Also:
Chip's Challenge
Mario Bros.
Duck Hunt
Oregon Trail

I can't believe no ones said Tetris yet.

Who beat level 9 high 5 when he was 6? Yeah, thats right.

Edit: oooh, Lemmings and Chip's Challenge. I haven't thought about either of those in forever.

I never really played Super Mario... Nintendos weren't very big here. Everybody got Sega Mega Drives and played Alex the Kid instead.

I played Boulderdash and Jetpackp on the Vic 20.

On the Atari St we played the graphic adventures like King's Quest II, Indianna Jones and the Last Crusade (very good game) and Zap somebody and the mind somethings which was cool because you went to Mars. For some reason Winter Olympiad '88 also sticks in my head. Ooh and of course Lemmings. Our version you could play 2 players at a time - one on mouse and one on joystick. Joystick Lemmings isn't as bad as it sounds. You each had your own place to take lemmings to and you only got points for guys that go into your own thing. Good fun. OOH OOH! And Gauntlet 2 - that was an epic game.

On my old Macs we used to play Marathon and the sequels. Got quite into making maps for it and so on.

When we got a playstation it was Tekken 3 and Grand Turismo (and the sequel).

Guess we're getting too close to the present now? I'll stop.

Pitfall, Mario Brothers, uhh... I think most games I merely wanted to play because my sister liked them.

I'll second, though, that Chronotrigger, though not exactly a childhood thing (started playing in high school at a friend's house), is completely awesome.

And Golden Axe. I went back and got a MAME version of that during college... what a disappointment. At least I still get a kick out of the villain's name. ("What a darling baby boy! I think I shall name him "DEATH=ADDER." Beats me.)

You guys played too many videogames as children. Aren't they supposed to be outside being little kids, not chillin' in front of the television/computer? My parents didn't even let me inside during the day unless it was raining out. And I better have liked it, dangit.

JezzBall, SkiFree, and seconded on Carmen Sandiago and thirded on Chip's Challenge. Also there is a level editor for Chip's Challenge that kids should try, and all kids should be required to make custom StarCraft maps and figure out how to use triggers as a good introduction to programming.

Destroy The Wasp Nest With SuperSoakers and Make Sure Only The Youngest Brother Gets Stung is also a classic.

Anyone play Where in the US is Carmen Sandiego? I was a lot better at that than I was at Where in the World.

Ahh, memories. Actually my parents should still have that on 3 1/2" floppies back home... I'm going to be by there in a couple weeks, I should dig them out and "rip" them.

(It feels so weird to say I'm going to rip floppies, but that's exactly what I'll do. Make an IMG of them and load 'em into VMWare. I've got images of DOS 6.0 and 6.2 and Windows 3.1 already. ;-))

I failed at Oregon Trail 3. Everyone dies.

Games that stick out from my childhood:
Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt (I was always scared of the Duck Hunt music at the title screen. I still am.)

Chips Challenge. (So good I made a userbox for it on Wikipedia. It is tied with my Good Eats userbox for my most popular userbox, on nine different userpages including my own, and still growing)

Second on Jezzball

That Maxwell game that I can't remember the name of.

Second on SkiFree (was it possible to pass the Yeti? I think I did it once, but I'm not sure.)

Wheel of Fortune (The first DOS version)


EDIT: Also:
Don't let the Balloon touch the Floor.

Treasure Mountain (I'm sorry)

and...

Mario Teaches Typing (I'm even more sorry)

Both great games.

Actually I could go for some 4 square now. Anyone in Madison? ;-)

(Just played kickball a couple days ago too. That was fun.)

Hmm, I think I do remember thinking that game is harder than the originals and II. I didn't ever play beyond the third, but up to that, I always thought OT2 was the best. Multiple sources and destinations and a bazillion possible paths FTW.

n+1 on SkiFree. Ah, memories. I did pass the yeti once, but it came back to eat me in a few seconds. Presumably this happens infinitely til you succumb to the jaws of skier doom, but I haven't tested.

Other than that, Duck Hunt, Oregon Trail 3 or 4, and a little DOS educational game called SchoolMom which featured math, Fun with Joystick Art, and a multiple-choice quiz engine.

I think there's a bunch. I, also, am always up for a game of 4 square, and catalyzed a few games in highly-traveled public spaces on my undergrad campus. Good times.

Robot Odyssey, and Rocky's Boots. Pole Tag. That's where everyone holds onto the pole with their left hand, and everyone runs in tight little circles, and you're out if the person behind you tags your right shoulder. Tetris and Dr. Mario. And Super Mario, and Super Mario 3. We played Assault, from American Gladiators, with a big Nerf gun. And some kind of crazy tag variant with koosh balls. And Bike Tag! Pente. Chess, until I beat my dad once. In middle school and high school, Descent, 1, 2, and 3. Tetherball and 4-square mattered at some point in my childhood, as did basketball, later.

But we spent a lot of time playing games we (I, mostly) made up.

We played Where in time is Carmen Sandiego? on the Apple IIe's at primary school. You'd find a telescope and that'd be a clue that you had to go to Galileo's time for instance.

That's... that's fucking awesome.

I remember some pixel studio type thing on the Macs at my school during grade school. That was a pretty sweet program. :)

Oh, I downloaded Oregon Trail Deluxe and a DOS emulator a few months ago... it's a lot easier than I had remembered. :( Only one person died of dysentery, that time. XD

Random games that stand out besides the overplayed games that everyone has had.

Yo Noid and Iron Cross for Nintendo. These were two of my favorite games.

For my sega genesis, Sub Terrania and Shining Force (I and II even though I still never beat two).

The one game for Nintendo 64 which was amazing and never got old was Blast Corps. The moon levels were the best!

Computer games which were my life and are the only type of games I play anymore; I would have to pick a few including: Worms, ARC, Uniball, and Heroes of Might and Magic.

And I still take part sometimes with the lava game in parking lots with close together yellow parking stoppers (what are those things called?!).

So many good games in my childhood...

Stock Ticker FTW.

There was also this old board game called "the Inventors", which has some crazy shit going down.

I had a game boy (the original, yo), and I loved playing Alleyway. We also had Paperboy, which I totally sucked at, but that didn't stop me from playing. What did stop me from playing was when my dad gave that game to my (overseas) cousin.

Then, when I discovered virtualnes-dot-something, I rediscovered Paperboy, and didn't totally suck at it!

...also the Star Trek: TNG game for game boy.

I definitely remembered some.

Sonic the Hedgehog (I was so good at that game, fuck yes.)
Echo the Dolphin (I was not quite as good at that game as I was at Sonic.)
Freezetag
Pacman!


And I um ... I definitely played a lot of Barbie.

I also forgot Paperboy. (I never was any good at that game)

I also had Thunderbirds for the NES.

*Looks one way, then the other* THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!


EDIT: Oh, and Superman. That game was confusing.

Oregon Trail

Holy crap, WORD. Kill the bear! Kill the bear!
Jetpack

More word. I spent so many hours at the age of 12 or 13 or whatever, making levels on that for my friends to FAIL MISERABLY AT!! MWAHAHAH!

Did anyone ever play with LogoWriter? While not a game, you could MAKE games from it (I made Pong, and some Choose-Your-Own-Adventures, and a Street Fighter type game.)

Also... Civilization. Not II, not III, not IV.... mufugging Civ.

Oh, man, the Apple IIGS!! Our school had two Apple IIGS's, and every break was a RACE to see who would get the other one (since it was generally foregone that I'd get one of them. */nerd*)

the Inventors

I own that. :)

QFT! I also had Loom on that CD. Which, incidentally, I just found again yesterday, but I don't have a Mac anymore so I have no way to play it.

I always played the early Sim games. SimAnt, SimTower, SimCity (the first and second ones). Of course Oregon Trail, that's just a given. My OLD-old computer, that ran DOS, had Duke Nukem on it, but I was terrible at that.

And of course, early Nintendo. But my games for that were pretty lame... mostly just Paperboy and the original Mario Bros.

I never did SimAnt, and didn't discover SimCity until 2000. I was having a sleepover at one of my friend's place and he showed it to me, and I whined to my parents to buy it for me as soon as I got home. (This was like 3rd grade.) Eventually they did, and the day after it arrived, I got sick and stayed home from school. I slept in a while and my dad came up and said "wow, you really are sick; I thought you might just be staying home to play SimCity."

I was also a fan of SimCity 3000. I found it easier to get going than 2000, which was always really hard.

SimTower was great too. That's actually a fairly easy game too. I always wanted to try Yoot's Tower, which is sort of its sequel, because you can do things I always wanted to in SimTower but couldn't (like have multiple towers that don't have floor between them, and build skywalks between them and such), but I haven't ever seen it anywhere. Actually, now that you mention it... *pulls out SimTower CD*

SimCopter was another good one, especially combined with SC2K.

I was also a big fan of the MS Flight Simulator. I still want to get my pilot's license someday.

There's also board games; I was really into Monopoly for a while, to the point of collecting sets. I have at least seven different monopoly sets, plus two computer versions, including one that was on a 3 1/2 in disk and totally text-based. (Standard, 60th anniversary, deluxe, millenium, .com, star wars, 3d puzzle.)

Hehe, the SimTower installation gives you a choice of "Full Install - Play SimTower off of a hard drive (requires about 8MB disk space)" and "Minimal Install - Play SimTower off of the CD-ROM", and it defaults to the minimal install.

Ahhh times were different then...

. . . . . Major League Baseball
. . . . . B-17 Bomber (Hehe.... Bombler)

Earliest games: NFL QB Club 95 on the Genesis, along with NHL 95, Live 95, and I think Frank Thomas's big hurt baseball

Then my cousin bought me Age of Empires.

Oh god.

When I was 8 I was pulling 8+ hour shifts on that game. That pretty much set the path/ruined the rest of my childhood :D

Edit: Haha you guys reminded me of the other crap I used to do as a kid:
Don't the balloon touch the floor, but if I was really up for it that day, Don't let the hackysack touch the floor.
Treasure Mountain, too.
And of course, Oregon Trail.

That....is.....awesome! I've never even played it, and I want it now!

When I posted this, I actually meant videogames, guess I should've been specific. Good to hear the outside games though too. Can someone tell me which is which though? There's some like Oregan Trail, 4Square, Jezzball...that I'm not sure of. And then there's games like "The floor is hot lava" that I hope to God are the childhood games I know, and not some REALLY crap video game idea.

I thought of another one too - Wolfenstein 3D. Best game on the school computers, ever.

My god, I just realised what 4square might be! Handball? Like, ping pong or table tennis almost, with hands and tennis ball? If it is, love it. Playing handball against a wall (like squash, but it has to bounce once first) is also great.

Some of my favorite computer games through time:
Commander Keen (Can't believe nobody said it allready)
LBA 2 (We didn't have the full version of LBA 1)
