Here is my brief entry for this blogfest hosted by Alex J Cavanaugh, be sure to visit his cool blog.
My top 3 games, I went for video games to keep it simple:
This game starts off with a murder and you are the culprit. You must then set about discovering why you commited the crime. Full of action and mystery this had me hooked all the way to the end and it would make a great movie. It was known as The Indigo Prophecy in the USA. Played on PS2.
This spin on Space Invaders is a classic shoot-em-up from the early 80's. I spent many hours on it in the arcades of UK seaside resort Blackpool. You can play it free on-line, just search for it and blast those aliens. Great fun.
Another 80's arcade game. This has been updated many times but the original was like a personal challenge to me as a boy. I was on a mission to beat characters such as Glass Joe, Pizza Pasta, Kid Quick and Bald Bull on my way to becoming the champ. Again, there are versions available on-line.
I find retro games much more enjoyable than the majority of todays over complicated and time consuming sagas.
Retro is cool !!
Galaga was a tough game!ReplyDelete
Thanks for participating in the blogfest.
I've played all of these. Very fun. =DReplyDelete
I loved Galaga also. It was one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
I forgot to list Galaga in my list! I loved that game. I actually downloaded it recently for the Wii. I think it was 5 dollars, but worth it.ReplyDelete
Retro games are awesome! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Guys. Galaga seems to be a popular choice, brilliant and simple.ReplyDelete
Never heard of any of these! I'll have to look them up.ReplyDelete
Fahrenheit sounds like an awesome game! I'm definitely going to have to check it out. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Galaga was brilliant! I loved it :)ReplyDelete
I miss those old arcade games. They were fun. Nice meeting you :)ReplyDelete
Eagle, I hope you enjoy them if you do look them up.ReplyDelete
Nicole, Fahrenheit was brilliant, one of the few modern games that I saw through to the end.
Lynda, glad you agree.
M Pax, I spent my childhood summers in the arcades with games like these, it was the golden era of gaming.
I like "Galaga" and "Punch-Out!" but haven't played "Fahrenheit." I like shumps such as MUSHA, Soldier Blade and Blazing Lazers more than Galaga, though.ReplyDelete
wow! I've never played either of theseReplyDelete
Ah, yes. I remember Galaga. So does my pocketbook. I went through SOOOOOO many quarters at the arcade on that one!ReplyDelete
Reid, I'll need to check those out.ReplyDelete
Baygirl, if you like retro you'll love Galaga.
Bryce, I too spent loads of money on good old Galaga, I played it constantly for 2 weeks one summer holiday.
I haven't played any of those but 80s games were the best. Maybe because I was a kid then so all I remember is how much fun I had playing them.ReplyDelete
I don't know the other two, but Galaga kicks ass.ReplyDelete
i like your games, i still love galaga =)ReplyDelete
happy belated gameblogfest!
Patricia, you should give Galaga a go, you'll love it.ReplyDelete
Jenny & Tara, I had no idea it was so popular.
Thanks for the comments.
I used to love Galaga and would play it for hours. Lot's of quarters invested in this game!ReplyDelete
Looks like Galaga used a lot of our time and money back in the day !ReplyDelete
