Games you loved when you were young that still ROCK!!!!

I have to say Dungeon Master and all the sequels. They are as good as when they were released. Oh my lord.....

Me and my childhood friend just played through Chaos strikes back. I can really understand why we gave up 20 years ago hahaha. But this time we drew all the maps as we crawled through the tunnels.

Todays games sucks compared to these games. Nice graphics me **s!!! The graphics doesn't matter when the games are this good

I'm trying hard to think which game I played and loved the most as a kid. there were so many! but as i got older I became more hooked on applications like Real3D and Deluxe Paint III.

Aha! a game I loved and still rocks:

Worms and Worms Directors cut... I still play that on my miggy and on PC even now. hours of fun!

Turricans, Battle Squadron, Flashback, Pinball Dreams (and sequels), Cannon Fodder, Stunt Car Racer, Deluxe Galaga and Megalomania are all still great. There are no doubt many more!

I'd say Gravity-Force and none of the sequels!!

So ugly. So ace. Play it with a friend. Become enemies for life.

Silkworm is still arcade quality and the sound... PFWOOOM! Exile. Go into another world for a long time and get a new pet Worms, Lemmings, Pinball xx all get played regularly actually!

Bit boring post with all the famous game namedropping but oh well.

Hmmm. Let's see:

3D Monster Maze! God, that was awesome and sooooo scary!
Manic Miner/Jet Set Willy - still just as playable as it always was.
Cybernoid and Cybernoid 2 - the 128k music rocked, the graphics were explosive and full of colour, and it was so playable it hurt. A Cecco classic.

Many others too, but nothing on later platforms (including the Amiga) stands out as much as the Spectrum classics did.

Manic Miner on the Speccy is still brilliant (still play it on my +2 and Phone).
Last Ninja/Wizball/Uridium & Ultima III on C64 - stunning games

and Sensi Soccer and Cannon Fodder on Amiga - two of the best games ever made!
