The purpose of this thread is to find those old games from the past whose title you just can't remember, or even a newer game you can't put your finger onto. All questions pertaining to this subject must be asked here.
The old Game Remembrance Thread has been around since July 2008 and reached a titanic size with 58 pages and over 1700 posts and we agreed it would be a good idea to start over with a new one. It will remain available for reference here.
How this Thread Works:
You come in and post as many details as possible about the game you're looking for, then wait until one of us comes up with the answer. It's as simple as that.
How to maximise your chances of finding what you're looking for:
Follow these simple guidelines:
1) As a general rule, be as much specific as you can, every little detail counts and may help us find what you're looking for.
2) Specify the timeframe the game came out, at least the decade (1990s, 2000s...)
3) Specify the platform you played the game on (which console, PC, operating system). If you're not sure, telling us which systems you owned in your gaming history narrows the field down considerably.
4) List any distinctive qualities you can remember: what genre of game was it (FPS, RPG, Platformer...)? Was the game 2D or 3D? What did the characters look like? Was the protagonist a male or a female or multiple characters? Was it first person or third person? If third person, what was the camera angle: behind the character, from the side, top-down, isometric? Post anything you can remember, even if it sounds insignificant.
Sticking to these ground rules will not only help others find your answer, but ensures that the first answer given is more likely to be what you are looking for.
Keep an eye on the thread
Once you've posted a query, remember to periodically drop by to see if anyone was able to help. In that case be sure to say so, so people know the query has been resolved.
Just because you don't receive an answer right away it doesn't mean we aren't working on it. Sometimes it takes time for someone to recognize the game you're describing, so check back whenever you see the thread has new replies, they may contain the answer to your request.
So far we have an score of over 200 resolved queries and counting, so keep asking here whenever you can't remember the title of a game and we'll do our best to find it for you.
If your game is found, say it!
If the game you are looking for has been identified, don't forget to post a comment to let us know.
