Are you hot for some side scrolling action?
Do your knees go weak for the 2nd dimension?
or do you preffer Command & Conquer cause it runs on DOS?

What classic PC games did you like to play and why?

For me it was Commander Keen

many a good time had blasting Queen on the stereo and trying to get all the worms together to try and make a giant flying foot!

whats your fav?

The last time I invested any time in a PC game was Castle Wolfenstein (the non Windows version!). I also really enjoyed Commander Keen. Before that it was Adventure, the text version (xyzzy!)

duke Nukem 3D was the first "adult" game i ever played and it was awesome!!

Loved Doom aswell, plus the secret of Monkey Island.

Erm Dune was kinda cool, ditto the early Warcrafts.

Cant remember much else! lol

Oh yeah, Their Finest Hour is a favourite of mine too. Still got the box at home with the great manual & all. I actually found the game quite educational. So much to do in that game.

Secret of Monkey Island was brilliant as well.
