[Poll] What's your childhood game?

Postby KingAndy » Sun Dec 06, 2015 2:21 am

Midtown Madness 2 surely has a special place on our hearts, but is it sharing that space with any other nostalgic videogame? Besides MM1/ 2 if they were your childhood games, which game has the most significant presence on your child memories?

In my case, it was a not so well known videogame called Starsky and Hutch The Videogame. It was based on the original 70's TV series of the same name, that came as a free gift with cereal boxes back that time. Although, I remember I actually won it not by buying the box, it was a gift from my 2th grade teacher for having the best rank on a test of the class, when I was 7. Before that I never had played any other videogames except those old pre-installed Windows games. I remember I would spend all the afternoon after school playing it, I've beaten that game multiple times and it absolutely marked my childhood.

Later I've bought the cereal boxes with Crazy Taxi (that I later discovered that unlike the other games, it wasn't the complete version) that unfortunately didn't work at all for compatibility issues with my mom's desktop and Ford Racing 2, that I also played quite a lot, but I have to give it a second place on this list. The big titles of that time such as San Andreas I would discover just much time later, because I really didn't gave much attention to gaming for quite recently, in fact for a really long time I never had bought a PC game neither had even owned a gaming console besides a Nintendo DS and a Gameboy. My gaming interest is really recent in fact.

And, just before knowing yours, here's the intro of the game that would play when the game started, oh the memories :D

Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec


Very fun game at the time, with lots of fun and unique cars from concept cars like the Nissan Z concept, to some that also are in MM2 like the Panoz GTR-1, Aston Martin DB7 or even the VW Beetle RSi. I tried to emulate it on PCSX2, but sadly it didn't work out. :(

The first game I played was a puzzle game called Snood, I remember playing it on a old Packer Bell conputer (which was my first computer which I got when I was 4) :)

Image

My first racing game I played was the first Flatout which I still play from time to time. The most nostalgic things in the game for me is the soundtrack, the sounds, the tracks and my favorite car since I first played Flatout, the Speedevil :D The engine sounds, the red paintjob and the whole rest of the car just screams nostalgia for me :)

P.S: I forgot to publish this post, so i am doing it again quickly!

The only nostalgic games i still play is Midtown Madness 2 and Unreal Tournament.

Unreal Tournament has something unique... I was very lucky that i have found that legendary mod that is still in Open Beta state...
Spoiler

Unreal Tournament:


Mod: Excessive Unreal 2 (aka EXU2)


Someone made this trailer, not the author.


Note: The mod does use Unreal stuff too!

The first games I played were the early NFS games and Test Drive 4. We also had many sports games like FIFA, but I'm not really into football so only my brother played them :P

@Diatosta: yeah I also have got them! :D All of them except the fourth one, I bought the one with Crazy Taxi 2 times because as I said it didn't work on my mother's computer and thought it was a problem of the CD, so I ended up with 2 copies of Crazy Taxi instead of the last one, since those promotial boxes ended before I could then get it.

Still, those two gave me so many hours of fun and good memories, even with Starsky and Hutch not playing the soundtrack and Ford Racing 2 lagging all the time. :P

Crash Team Racing and WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 will always have a special place in my heart. Pretty sure those were the two games I played the most during the last decade.

I've got several games that signed my childhood, all on PC and mostly of cars driving, my favorite genre. The memorable ones that I've played for thousand of hours are Dethkarz, Rally Championship 2000 and Midtown Madness 2, of course. :wink:

I've got to play and like the first Flatout, Crazy Taxi, Ford Racing 2, and Starsky & Hutch The Videogame. :D

Midtown Madness 1&2
NASCAR Thunder 2004
FlatOut 1&2
NFS High Stakes, Porsche Unleashed, ProStreet
Combat Flight Simulator
Motocross Madness 1&2
Gran Turismo 2
Ridge Racer
Formula One '99 (feels like a PS2 game for PS1, really good.)

Recently, I hooked up my laptop to the TV via HDMI, put in Gran Turismo 2, and played in using the PCSX emulator, and holy crap is it amazing! It looks great in widescreen and even better combined with the clearer graphics. I just wanted to point that out, for some reason (lol)

Well, I dunno about PCSX, but I've played some games, including Gran Turismo 2, in ePSXe with everything on maximum, and god damn, does it look good. :P
