Someone asking about Boulderdash, got me thinking of games that I used to play years ago.  

Some games I used to play were:

Dropzone
Pole Position
ET (on an Atari 400)
Streets of Rage
Ecco the Dolphin
River Rescue
Boulderdash
and lots of others that I can't remember the names of.

What games did you play?

Sonic the Hedgehog (any of the series) on the Sega Mega Drive.

On the PC, it's got to be Carmageddon.

Who could forget "Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards"

One of the first (blue) PC role-playing games.

If the rancid guacamole didn't get you, it was something nasty from not using adequate protection.
