Games that Started it all

by on

Ohh How I loved my Atari 800 and my friends Commodore 64. I still miss them and the thrill of the new games on them. Time has moved on but the great games that I first started playing there and then on my PC carry on in my heart. Here are my favourite games of all time and writing this list is making me very, very nostalgic, they are in the order that they came to mind. Games I played first are towards the front of the list and later ones at the back. You will also notice that the post 2000 list is light on games as PC gaming really contracted around then.

Classic Games Played on my Atari 800, ST or first PC

  1. (and without question) M.U.L.E.
  2. Eastern Front -- a game you couldn't win
  3. Blue Max -- I am the Blue Max
  4. 7 Cities of Gold -- who doesn't love lost treasure
