Re: Your first game....*aww*
On the PC it was 'Strike Commander' from Origin. I bought the game a month or two before we got the PC. The game took up 1/3 of the PC's hard drive. :D

Among the first games I played on the Amiga 500 was 'Giana Sisters.' I never figured out how to do a save game, so I never got far.

I don't remember any particular games in the C64. Was just playing on it.

My first pc game was Scorched Earth, I used to play it on an old system which had about 4 mb ram and I think the processor was only 86 mhz. It was along time ago I was just a little kid at the time. But, my actual first game was Super Mario Bros. on the old NES when I was two years old.

Scorched Earth rules. I still play that occasionally. It works fine in Dosbox.

On the PC, some EGA darts game in 1989. Then Mario when my brother got a NES for Christmas.

Digger for me, we had a monitor back then that only had one color - green.

Plus my father had Nevada Craps, but I never did learn how to play it.

Green screen!

We had a game called "Antiem" (probably spelling that wrong) after the battle, and I remember looking at the manual and thinking "15 different terrain types, gosh that's complicated". It was for the time; quite impressive too, really had the feel of Avalon Hills-style wargame.

There's a 3D version out, but it's just not the same as the good ol' classic. The Death Head is still completely ridiculous though.  ;)

I find that the MIRV is a better buy than that. They still do a lot of damage, but you can get three of them for something like half the price of a death's head.

Scorched 3D is fun in a different way than Scorched Earth

Indeed.  :nod: Some friends and I played it at a LAN recently to kill time while others there had to install some games.
