OK, let's see who will be the first (if any) to guess the name of this game...

Floppy disk Paragliding?

Let's see.. isn't it called Paragliding? It is an attempt to simulate parachute jumping. I think it was programmed by Loriciel in 1992.
By the way: If I am right, do I win a prize?

You win 1 million if the game is Paragliding. Wrong simulation, though.

Oh, and the reason I didn't place this thread in the forum where it now resides was because I'm not looking for the name of the game because I know it; it's just a quiz, so I felt I had it in the proper place. But it works here, too, I suppose.

BTW: how long should I let this thing go before you guys quit?

I have an idea

How about, every week one of these name the game things comes up, and when the game is found, the game is uploaded. Just for novelty, but will also help out a few

A weekly gameshow

Well, I do like the idea of having it as a weekly feature. We could mix it up and have some screenshots crippled and others not (the more obscure games). We also need to decide how to delegate who chooses which games. Obviously someone who is not going to put up an easy Xenon 2 or Populous shot. And it should probably cycle through different members, but how do we determine who?

For the rare games, it would be best to show the entire screenshot since most of us have never seen half of the games

For the known games, only show a portion.

eg.

I've just uploaded Airport!

Brilliant idea indeed AmigaBoy!

But we should determine the rules of this game as Twistin' Ghost previously noticed!
