I'm reminiscing today for some reason. 

 

Had a flashback to when I used to play Road Rash and Moto Racer on Windows 98. Chuck in Fifa 2001 for good measure as well. 
What did you guys use to play?

Wolfenstein 3D, Sim City 2/3000 & once I managed to track down the start up age protection questions because my parents wouldn't tell me them (for obvious reasons) Leisure Suit Larry.

Comanche.

 

 

 

It was a helicopter gunship sim which I played with both stick and throttle. I was pretty good at it, which is why it sticks in my mind!

Lots of Lemmings.

 

Captain Claw

 

Mostly DOS-based games (e.g. Commander Keen series, Monster Bash, Captain Comic, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure), TBH.  Still do, thanks to DosBox!

Could that be because you saw the latest LGR video?

 

 

 

I still play Red Alert from time to time, remaster is out next month!

+1. I played Leisure Suit Larry in the good old MS DOS days. Also an early road racing game I can't recall the name of. My favourite though was Psion Chess. Very far ahead of its time.

Duke Nukem 3D. The first game I bought when I got a PC in '96. At $55 back then, it seemed like a hideous price, but in terms of entertainment per dollar spent, it has yet to be beaten. It took me months to get through all the levels, and then all the downloadable mods and similar.
