Nostalgia lane! [Old games. Like really, old games]


This is a post for all those hardcore gamers and also GFF (Gamers For Fun) who used to play and love to play games 🙂

But this isnt about games being played now; Its about games that were played long time back before all the so called “game engines” came out. Pre-2000…heck, even pre-1995. And 1998 may sound close but its 11 YEARS back haha. We played, laughed so hard that we cried, experienced the replaying a particular level (just for ingame nudity), felt the adrenaline RUSH of finishing some highly irritating levels or killing a boss with just 20% health remaining; they’re all dear and fond memories of our control over the computer. Most of the games didnt have the save game option till much later, so when the boss prevails, nothing left but to show anger and destroy gamepad or bash the keyboard 😀 How many of you HAV’NT experienced this? Come on.

But yeeess, lets see how many of you recognise these games and….nostalgiate from whichever part nostalgiates. Some are quite old but bring back the fun times spend with cousins and friends 🙂

This particular game was downloaded onto nishant’s computer by mistake, after losing the racing game Test Drive (TD) in a hard disk crash. Remember how we assumed the TD was test drive and it turned out to be Traffic department. But we got strangely hooked onto it.


And then we have the really old stuff. This makes me so happyyy.

THE ATARI 2600 😀

I had one of this in around 1989, barely remember games when i was that old. But as we got older, all the cousins would play and crack up at some of the unbelievably funny games present on this.

BOXING

PITFALL

FIRE ESCAPE

CIRCUS

FAST EDDIE

The ATARI series is dedicated to the Bandaru brothers, without whom gaming would not have become so much fun

Anyone! comments! feelings! old memories! comment away. And do tell me if i missed any. Im expecting a lot of names from nihar

    That’s a great collection of games nicely presented. It leaves me wanting more! How about Commander Keen? Or Duke Nukem when he was at his platforming best?
