Spent hours with my bro trying to beast this fucking masterpiece
I was in the 4th grade. The game was in my elementary school's computer lab. I had really no idea what was going on, but I was having fun.
Im not even that old but my first pc game was this floopy disk that had a few games on it. one you were this shitty looking archer on the left side of the screen and you had to shoot arrows at things that came at you from the right side. there was a practice level with balloons and shit. then there was also a tank one where you had to shoot the other tank but there was terrain in the way. you set the angle and power and if it hit the terrain it broke away until you were finally able to hit the enemy tank.
Probably some Math Blaster babby game or something. Oregon Trail was also a favorite. The good one that wasn't on DOS.
Breakthrough from educational garbage was Quake II and what and experience it was.
>not Lego Island 1
I played it to death
my nigga, used to play this shit in a pc with one of them brown monitors and the vertical PC
can't find a picture or a name, but it was some old DOS game where you play as a gopher eating beets from a farmer's garden without falling out of your gopher hole. whenever you won a round, another gopher with sunglasses and and a motorcycle would pick you up and speed up while the farmer jumped on his hat in anger.
I can't remember. I think it was like GTA3 in that you could drive cars and get in and out of the car, but it definitely wasn't GTA3 because people would just dive out of the way if you tried to run them over. I think it took place in San Francisco or some in-universe equivalent.
As far as I know, it could have been complete shovelware, I can't remember.
I was so young I really can not remember my first computer game. Was it the Macintosh in elementary school, or my home PC at home? I remember handful of games, but I can't point to which ones were my first...
I can probably mention one game that probably no one would know though. I've mentioned it before and not one fucking person has ever said they've played or even heard of this game.
It was a Sierra point and click adventure game aimed towards children. Mixed-Up Fairy Tales. It was about how two children get teleported into the realm of Fairy Tales by the Book Wyrm because a Troll was going around and messing up popular Fairy Tales, and you had to use your knowledge of the Fairy Tales to set things right.
Got it working a few months back.
Those fucking sharks.
They're probably a bit hard to get through now but I really enjoyed them when I replayed them a couple years ago. You can get most, if not all, of them on GOG. Ultima Underworld is a really good dungeon crawler as well.
King's Quest on the IBM PC junior.
Used to play this all the time when I was about 8. I was fucking terrible.
i loved that game OP. also pic related is mine
Loved this game as a kid. Actually going to see if I can torrent it and get it working right now...
Very soon after this game was Bug Too! I have yet to be able to get that on my PC and it pisses me off because my But Too disk was scratched and stopped working at the space level so I never finished it.
Got this with my first computer. Was fustrating as fuck at first but got the hang of it before long.
>tfw you will never own that backpack or the cap with the antenna
this was not long after my cousins dad got a pc.
i got my first pc when i was 10, and played a lot of mechwarrior 4 and hard truck 2. fucking quad heavy laser, dual gauss rifle daishis.
Yeah. It was the first and last lego game I played but it was great fun even though I was screaming untill I figured out how to stop all the landslides.
G-Nome. shit was cash, i didn't care if i barely knew how to play it. the graphics were neat and it was the first mech game i've ever played.
>install it for the first time
>that warning makes me shit my pants
>mom hears it
>ANON WHAT ARE YOU DOING ARE YOU HACKING INTO THE GOVERNMENT
>pull the plug on the PC and hide in my room
My nigga, I bought all of those
But I started with this
If I find a single other person who has played this game I will do a handstand and shit myself
Started playing when I was 3 or 4. Pretty sure this game led to my autism. I got so addicted and so good at math I became a borderline child genius, skipped a grade in elementary (they wanted me to skip 2, but fuck that), and became PC master race since I was 5.
Now i'm a stoner who browses /v, gets high, and grinds JRPGs.
Does anyone remember that PopCap program that let you play a bunch of Sega games like Comix World and every Sonic game?
You just picked a game and played it, this must have been at least over 10 years ago.
wonderful memories. still have the jewel case.
>this was my first and only PC game
At least one person gave it a 9.6/10
It took me a long time as a kid to beat it, but I think I managed it eventually.
I played it again since then, and it turns out I was a stupid child.
Im not actually sure what my first one was. I know I had one of those shitty "100 games in 1!" CDs and it actually had a decent amount of fun games
now I want to try and find that again but I'm guessing it got thrown away at some point
I remember playing this on my Aunt's pc at the time, but that was so long ago it might not even be my first one just the oldest one i can remember
I remember seeing this bad boy on the counter in a bag waiting for me.
The first PC game I remember playing was a first person game where you walk around a haunted house. It was a point a click adventure with cheesy voice acting and it was on the Apple 2. I really wish I could remember the name of it.
I remember playing this with my siblings, friends, and uncle. Even started downloading car mods.
my brother of african american descent
who /spaz/ here?
The nostalgia is starting to kick in.
Is Mechwarrior online a good way to scratch the itch?
I remember this running like ass on our pentium 133 when we got it
Was hard as fuck as well
Rick Dangerous on my old Atari.
I'm not really sure, but i think my first video game was an educational one, where the main character was a firefly which traveled around the world and taught you stuff about anything it stumbled upon. It was 2D with cartoony graphics(similar artstyle to The Curse of Monkey Island). I can't remember the game's title.
The first 3D game i ever played was either Midtown Madness or Motocross Madness 2. Or NFS III: Hot Pursuit.
Fuck. I'm surprised by how easily you remember your first game /v/.
I remember I had that at home and I beat it. So when I got to class we got to pick a game we wanted to play. And my partner wanted to play this cause I had all the answers. That wasn't fun for me.
This fucking thing. I was just a wee nipper in school. Never got very far in it, my badger kept getting killed.
Technically Portal 2, since every PS3 copy of Portal 2 also came with a Steam version.
But my first Steam game was Offspring Fling, gifted by a friend
this one game i got out of a captain crunch cereal box back in 99
On my millionaire uncle's very expensive laptop in 1993
2 was when the series turned to shit though
>non-flag positions no longer valuable because of the "we couldn't think of where to place the ammo and health on this map so we'll just let some guy drop it for you" system
every cancer of the battlefield series began with 2
I'm trying to remember a PC game I played back in the 90s. It was some sort of intereactive toy shop where you could click on different items. Some would play an animation, but others would give you mini games. I think the toy shop owner was some old guy with a white beard, but can't remember exactly.
I've been googling and googling but I just can't find the game I think was my first PC game.
It's most likely windows 95/98 and it's an action game with tanks. I remember it being fairly slow paced, dodging in and out from buildings because enemies could wreck you like like you were nothing.
There was a light, a medium and a heavy tank.
There were infantry to drive over and squish. I remember it being pretty brutal.
That or Jazz Jackrabbit 2
awww sheeit niggah. I can still hear the title music.
Did you ever play pocket tanks by the same guy?
Probably not as good as I remembered it.
I must've had my Megadrive around the time we got our first PC.
350mhz, 32mb ram, 18gb HDD
Big Red Racing
It was a game on the computer my daycare had installed. Don't recall anything about the game but I recall having fun with it
This shit basically taught me my first English.
It's weird how my very young childhood memories of this "game" make it seem like an incredible first person adventure, when in reality it was barely even a point n' click game.
Rate my early games.
First I can remember were Baldur's Gate, Sid Meier's Gettysburg, and some point and click adventure game where you went back in time to several doomed civilizations before and after their fall like Atlantis.
Did you own pic related?
If so then yes I'm probably you.
It taught me basic math better than my teachers.
>that one level where aliens are blowing up the track trying to kill you
This game was fucking crazy
I didn't know what I was doing
I'm hoping someone remembers this old PC game:
>Super Metroid clone
>bad guy was called Xenos
>I believe the title was something like "escape from/return to planet *name of planet here*"
>probably from mid-90's
Ran at a silky smooth 15 fps with 120+ping to the nearest servers
Well I had fuckin legos. Lots of em
No seriously, I built an extension to the castle and my parents bought me more of the knights so I could have bigger battles. I also had some wargame ruleset that I applied to all of them and used dice to play war with them.
The only things I didn't have to make that playset even better was mini siege engines and
friends who wanted to roll dice and yell at each other with me. Why did other 6 year olds not want to get into the glorious world of /tg/?
This and Day of the Tentacle… but it took me a while to play DOTT because of the EMS memory config requirements
that great feel ruining when ruining everyone lives just to build that huge ass pyramid
I always remembered this game as my first(technically, I saw Doom but it was my dad who was playing it) but holy shit I just got a huge wave of nostalgia when I saw the screenshot.
I gotta redownload and finish this game
I had only played my PS1 prior to this.
My first PC and first FPS.
Fucking love this game and its expansions.
I didn't get a PC for a long time.
I mainly played Tony Hawk's Pro Skater on my Nintendo 64, then I got a PC.
>tfw i loved spongebob even tho i wasn't a kid anymore
I think it was this.... also remember some old golf game that was very yellow.
This was my first PC game. I rarely used a computer back then, so I got into PC gaming very late.
It wasn't that great, if I remember correctly. They gave you very bad cards when starting off, and there wasn't much to do.
My nigga. I never did figure out how to play it but loved every minute of it.
It kind of depends on whether you count Amiga systems as a form of PC, on which case it was either Zool or Buggy Boy around '92 or '93. First proper PC games were mainly adventure games like Day of the Tentacle and The Secret of Monkey Island.
If we're talking Amiga then this was mine
I don't remember specifically which but my uncle gave us a CD with a bunch of DOS games on it. Keen, Wolfenstein, the 2D Duke Nukem, it had ZZT which I could barely comprehend and a million other games I don't remember.
The first game I remember beating entirely was Cosmo the Alien.
the only thing I remember about this game is that I got an erection
>be 6 or 7 when RCT2's expansions started to come out
>loved RCT1, parents never bought me the second
>see Wacky Worlds in a game shop
>dad says he can't get it for me because we don't have the base game
>tfw distinctly remember screaming up the place because my child mind couldn't grasp the concept of an 'expansion pack'
>pre-tides of darkness
H-HOLY FUCK! I HAD FORGOTTEN THIS MASTERPIECE!
Goddamn it what got me into animation! I used to frame by frame animate each of the blocks making tank battles and shit.
I need some help with this, /v/.
I remember using a Disney animation tool/game back when I was around 10. It had all the main characters (Mickey, Goofy, etc) and you could animate shit with them. There were a bunch of pre-set characters and a few of them were trippy as shit. There was also an animation tutorial where you had to animate a bouncing ball.
What the fuck was this called? I can't find it on Wikipedia.
And worse than I remember...
Marathon and AOE2, bunch of N64 games too.
I spent so much time in Forge just making shitty maps for fun as a kid. I even at one point figured out how to use Resedit and shit to make retextures. I made a map that looked like an office, I wanted to play it with my dad but never finished it.
It's probably still on our old PowerPC 8600 too.
Disney Magic Artist Deluxe
>tfw I was the only one that played this on /v/
>tfw there'll never be a sequel
I actually tried to install this the other day. Doesn't run on Windows 7.
There is a sequel in the works actually.
Heavy Gear Assault.
Goddamn I remember the advertising for this
"Lights that break when you shoot them!"
"Realistic reactions when you shoot someone"
"Random easter eggs everywhere!"
It was a simpler time
Oh man, I haven't seen that since I was like 6 years old. I remember my mom getting that shit for me and another game to do math since I sucked at it.
I kind of stopped playing it because I kept getting answers wrong. Might be an indication as to why I'm so shit at math today.
Pfft, sorry, clicked on the wrong post when I went searching. Your replies looked the same in my tired head.
First game not on a console ever? Montezuma's Revenge on my uncle's AppleII.
First PC game ever? Probably Doom.
First PC game that I owned? Incoming; it came with the PC.
This was LITERALLY the hypest game.
Day of the Tentacle, dad took his old work monitor and finally we could use the PC. It must have been about 1996.
Mum kept telling me tentacle was pronounced testicle so I would say it to wind my dad up, I loved that game.
Another Super Solvers one, but I never see it mentioned.
>implying this isnt everybody's first PC game
more like this
>be young as fuck
>play skiifree like mad
>time a jump for when the yeti comes
>leave it far behind
>second yeti appears and eats me
I learned early that freedom is a lie.
>just booting games on dos was more difficult then 90% of modern AAA games.
First PC game I actually owned. My first computer was less than a toaster. It was barely a fucking kettle.
First one I actually got to play was MechWarrior 2 on my uncle's computer. Shit was awesome.
I only got to play the shareware version though
My friend had this on PS1. Apparently, the PC and the PS1 versions were rather different, but I have no idea how.
Liked the music though.
No one played this shit
software etc sold this for $99.99
one of the worst games ever
I can't remember anything before this
It saddens me on a daily basis that this series is dead, it still remains my all-time favorite.
This game fucking sucks
I still played the shit out of it
This was my first pc game too. I vaguely remember shooting pizza from helicopters and shooting donuts out of police cars. Based lego games.
Then some Go-Kart game. The only thing I remember was the guy that drove the gray Kart had a cigar.
I remember that game running like ass. I always got a glitch in the intro that made everything except the characters invisible. I'd spend 10 minutes clicking every pixel of the screen trying to find the button to make me advance.
That might be the reason I remember a lot more of the second game.
