Budom, for me.

This was probably my favorite game as a young kid. My school had a tech lab with nothing but Macs, so it got played pretty heavily. :P Same goes for Cro-Mag Rally, if any of you actually know Pangea Software.

How about you?

Freaking Gun.Smoke. Awesome game with a simplistic control mechanism that worked really well. I still get the midi tune from the first level stuck in my head on ocassion.

Not for me. I always played the games everyone liked to play at the time. Mario, Mortal Kombat, and NBA JAM. Sigh lol.

When I was REALLY little, about 4 years old, I had these Rugrats games. They were pretty fun. Then again I was 4.

And I guess from the PS2 era...I dunno, maybe Red Ninja? Also that wrestling game that had all the popular rappers at the time in it. That game was amusing. I don't know if they are "hardly played" but I never hear anyone mention them.

Bubsy for the SNES, I mean, "what could possibly go wrong"? Short answer: EVERYTHING.

You read my mind. SBK2 and Silicon Valley were both amazing 64 games. Quest 64 anyone?

I'd say Hexen and Jet Force Gemini for N64 are 2 of my favs that almost no one I know has even heard of. I was gonna say Secret of Mana or Legend of Gaia but I think those are pretty popular and people I know have usually played Mana or Evermore.

I had Jet Force Gemini! First game I played where the boobs bounced as the heroine moved. Good times.

Outcast on the PC, one of the first really immersive games I played and in my opinion still one of most well-made world in gaming history. Sadly I never met someone who actually played the game.

You won't believe this, but check out the music on this video. There's a THIRD person who played Plok. Blew my mind.

Lol Gun.Smoke- had to put that period in the middle to avoid copyright infrigment. Heh.

For me:

runSaber_(11).jpg

Run Saber! Bare-bones hack and slash game, very similar to Strider, but I was a kid and this was one of my first video games so I really was'nt concerned about quality. Pretty beast techno soundtrack. Probably my first experience with speedrunning, too- you had to play all 5 stages through at once since there was no saving whatsoever- me and my cousin used to take turns trying to clear the game faster. Good times.

Even if I lose my limbs, I know I can always find them on a wire hanger somewhere.

Karnov

Dragon Power I liked the jumping around and kicking people. I also liked the ending. Although the game was pretty cheesy.
