Do you still play games from the 90's?

Post by musa » April 15th, 2013, 9:57 pm

Which games do you still play that were released between January 1 1990 and December 31 1999? (besides Prince of Persia)

Not too long ago I bought Half-Life via Steam, but I only played it for a very short time, because I didn't like it very much (even though I did as a kid).
Basically, I no longer play any games from the '90s, although there are several games from that era that I'd recommend to people. (If you want a list, let me know. :P)
Oh, since you did not yet answer your own question, how about you, do you still play games from the '90s other than PoP?

I play some Carmen Sandiego games, a MS-Dos version, and CD-ROM one.
You know, I play plenty of old games.

Tons. Mario Kart 64 and Starfox 64 to name a couple. Plenty of other N64 and SNES games, which were my favorite consoles by a landslide.

I'm kind of retro-gamer, it's what I like and I'm not ashamed to say that, I've always played DOS games, a few Sega Genesis with emulators, and some PS1 also with an emulator (because my PS1 is all broken :( ). In replacement I bought a PS2, some of my games are POP Sands of Time, Micro Machines V4, Need for Speed Undercover, GT 4, among others... But my pastime (talking about games) is retro-games, not so retro, I mean games from the 90's, maybe one or two from the 80's.

Of course! Let's start enumerating with Another World:
http://s2.blomedia.pl/komorkomania.pl/i ... nother.jpg

Electro Man (Electro Body) - old polish platform game. I really recommend this game, especially the 1:1 remake of it


Clash, excellent polish strategy (I'm afraid it's not very well known).


Immortal Jazz Jackrabbit 2 with perfect soundtrack by Siren (known as Alexander Brandon):


Realms of Chaos - classic!


Heart of Darkness, fascinating journey-like platform game:


Late 90's/start of 00's: Baldur's Gate (and every game on Infinity engine), Abe's Oddysee/Exoddus (there will be a remake of this game in the near future, I'll look forward) and Worms Armageddon - a source of infinite fun.

And so on. I don't play in the new games (except the latest Deus Ex and Worms, Heroes of Might Magic series). I prefer to turn on the NES emulator and play for example Battle City or Balloon fight :).

I was going to mention this game but could not for the life of me remember what it was called. Amazing game.

I played Kye once, and it was a good game.

From the chat:
Zaknafein wrote:Hey! Does anybody know how to open Windows 3.x's programs in a Windows 8.1 (directly)? I wanted to open the classic Kye and other childhood games and programs, without having to use a VirtualBox or making a partition for it :? Ty
It is possible to install Windows 3.1 within DOSBox.
DOSBox is more lightweight than VirtualBox, although it's still not "directly".

You can also enable 16-bit application compatibility.

But as far as I know, it does not exist on 64-bit Windows.
Zaknafein, is your Windows 32-bit or 64-bit?
