Star Control 2 (UQM)

I'll probably think of many more the second I post this.....

If you search the forums for Star Control 2, I did a short write up on installing / running UQM from the CLI. It works perfectly!
Dear forum: Play nice ;-)

I enjoyed 'Half Life' when it was new - but it also put me off gaming forever. I invested so much time in it and then gave up. a year later I read the walk-through and realised that I gave up just before completing it. I nearly cried.

Grand Theft Auto... :twisted:

Why? Because you get to play the part of the bad guy, rather than saving the country/world/universe, and on the later versions it's just fun to be able to add new vehicles in place of the default ones, so you can have your own real cars to drive about in.... :mrgreen:

Oh, and Nuclear War, cos it makes fun of the powers that were, during a time when there were very real threats of being obliterated, a very depressing and upsetting topic (see Threads or When the wind blows, but have a stock of anti-depressants to hand for afterwards though!!), but the game just makes it feel like a light-hearted joke, with leaders' names like "Ronny Raygun", "Burgerchef" and "Ghanji", it's just all round funny, especially when you reach the end, and nobody is really the winner... :lol:

Of course, I have Original, Rio and Space on my androids, but I wouldn't call it the best, just excessively addictive... :lol:

Arcade: Defender, Robotron 2112, Asteroids, and for good sound Gyron.
C64: Bolderdash, Matrix, Hover Bover.
Spectrum: JetPac.
PC: Captain Keen, Fractint. :)
Megadrive: Flashback (apart from the door which does not open).
PS123: FIFA '06 (maybe better versions, but this one got well played).

I could add to these, but I think it better to point out some good games with minor faults.
C64: Elite (nice but when auto dock was selected there was no way to avoid an hour long t-break), Valhalla (Could always summon Odin (maybe thrice) and get him to do all the work).
Spectrum: Ant Attack (very complicated keys to learn in a dinner hour :) ).

Cheers Jacko

Super Mario Bros 3

8 brilliantly themed worlds, a awesome array of suits, challenging and so many hidden things I'm still finding them.
