So, what are your favorite games from the 90s?


I have a lot to choose from but top of my list have to be Sonic The Hedgehog, Grand Theft Auto, Lemmings, Driver, Quake, and Duke Nukem.

I was either non-existent, or a wee lad in the 90s, depending on what year you are talking about.
1) Age of Empires 2
2) Lego Rock Raiders
3) Lego Racers
4) Quake 3
5) Midtown Madness

Coincidentally, these were all released in '99. Great year for gaming, I guess.

* GoldenEye 007: I got to the point where NO ONE wanted to play with me, because I knew all the shortcuts, and I would always get to the Golden Gun first. With that, I would completely shut down entire areas of the map. Yes. I was a major cheater. Shuddup.


* The Sims: Yes, it was February of 2000, but close enough.


* SimCity 3000: Everything would always be perfect for a hundred years or so. But, somehow, right at the 100 year mark, the money would instantly drop to -200 million, and I was NEVER able to figure out why. I would simply delete that city, and make a new one.

* Streets of SimCity: The best thing about this game is how the installer also installed SimCity Urban Renewal Project, so you could modify the cities, and that ability completely blew my mind. Better yet, you could make your own cities, and play them in Streets of SimCity. Oh the years of playing that....In fact, I STILL have the floppy disk (Yes, a FLOPPY) full of my custom cities.


* Simcopter: The aforementioned SimCity Urban Renewal Project also worked in this game, because of course it did. I remember saving up to buy a joystick, just for this game.

Delete America? I would love to do precisely that. As for making a new one, no.

The reason your money is at -200 million is because you have no intention of paying off your debts. Every time you hit your debt limit, you simply shut down your government until you make a new law that says you are allowed to owe this much, and now this much, and now this much.

Not saying it is, but why does this sound like an anti-piracy measure? XD

Given the fact that I have the actual disk, it seems more like a mechanic built into the game.

When I first started gaming, I was way behind the times and stuck on dial-up and using a windows 98 PC. I think I lived on some "dosgames" site that I'd kill to remember the URL to. Granted, while it seems wrong to not compile a list of them that tickled my fancy I can't remember the last time I played one.

I still play the hell out of You Don't Know Jack, though. And it's still a blast.
