I used to make sheep levels for war craft 1 or 2 and I'd go and kill all of the sheep.

Ah, that brings back memories of creating custom Age of Empires maps with, oooh, approximately 12 million enemy troops, a big thick forest (impenetrable), a very small gap, and cheat codes for laser and nuclear missile wielding wee guys.

Another guilty pleasure would be Rainbow Islands. I love the game to bits but don't generally admit it since the one time I played the game in an arcade some snotty nosed kid came up behind me with his father and pointed at me and laughed exclaiming "Look daddy, that man's playing a girl's game!". The dad wasn't too progressive either and agreed "Yes he is. Isn't he silly.". It was at that moment I made a pact (with myself) to only play manly games like Miss World Nude.

I used to play Parasol Stars, though it isn't my guilty gaming pleasure. I wonder if this is neccesary, but it is like someone commanded me to do so, well...:

I used to play the old NES/Famicom version of Twinbee, though there were various for the NES.

-----------------------------------------------------------

If I were to choose old puzzle games, I would choose Columns III (Sega Mega Drive), the AI was exceptional in Hard mode, there where multiple secrets, items and effects, the 2 player mode was pretty fun, and you could play up to 5 players, but if you can't play with someone who has about the same skills as you it gets a little pointless.

The other would be Pon'n'Pop but not the Arcade version, the PS1 version, again I liked to play with friends, I remember we would always end in some kind of discussion or fighting because we weren't synchronized.

It wasn't like that in Bubble Bobble 1, I knew since kid, when I played Bubble Bobble Part 2, you get to see that they were kids in the intro.

Can't they be both ?, like this:

I remember that in Pop 'n Pop, among other Taito characters (like Bub 'n' Bob), you could also play as the Rainbow Island guys, but I never knew their names anyway.

From what I remember they were only revealed as peeps rather than bubble dragons at the end, or something.

 
Re: whats your guilty gaming pleasure?
Their main tech to kill monsters is called "Kissing monsters", it's the most common way to kill a monster you, once you trap it inside a bubble you when near enough to touch or kiss, as mentioned, either literally or not, don't ask me I don't know.

Err....you have to beat the game with both players, and then eh well, I can't tell here...but peeps wouldn't be the exact word, I'll see if I play it and take an screenshot, but again even the screenshot could be too much to post...

Re: whats your guilty gaming pleasure?
Anyone played Rodland? At first it looks really cute. You've got bright colours, pretty girly backgrounds, cute little faries with magic wands, and equally cute enemies. Then you see the game mechanincs. You zap bad guys with your wand to freeze them in your magical grasp. A bit like Syndrome's zero point gravity device in The Incredibles. Then once you've got hold of them you swing them back and forth over your head smashing them into the ground. It's really quite violent.  ;)

Yeah. I remember that one. Parasol stars worked in a fairly similar way.

Yes. Parasol Stars. Cause Rainbow Islands wasn't effeminate enough, lets give the guys big girly umbrella's with which to defeat their enemies. :D

Guilty gaming please?

"Be proud, Mister Wu!"

"Who want-a some Wang?"

I'm too old, and too politically correct to chuckle at that game, yet I still do.

That, and I will admit to being thoroughly addicited to Animal Crossing for about 8 months.

Damn, I still remember playing the shareware version of that years ago, like almost a decade or something. So very wrong, and yet so very right. :yes:

Shadow Warrior (3DRealms, on the Duke Nukem 3D engine) was released in May 1997. Goldeneye in August 1997 ;)

Another guilty pleasure involved alot of alcohol (well, I drank, my friends drank and hit the hooka) and playing 1080 (the snowboarding game) as a Deathmatch (you can kill the other player if you knock them off the mountain, try it if you still have a SNES).

Fun times.

Embarrasingly I used to play this a lot when I bought a second hand Megadrive and this came free with it! I played it for hours and still never actually remember completing it!
