The Most Important Games Ever Made

    Fury3 by MS released about 97 for Windows 95 and controlled by an MS flight control digital fighter style joystick.

    You flew a futuristic Sci-Fi fighter plane against a variety of targets on nine separate planets. To move from one planet you had to successfully complete three missions on each planet before making the jump to the next planet. Each planet's environment were dramtically different and you were under CONSTANT attack by a huge variety of different threats.

    But the really great thing about it for me was that the fighter you flew handled just like a real aircraft but with no blackout and istant precise response.

    If its a "plane" with a true flight control stick, throttle and HOTAS type config I can take on anything--routinely scored well over 400,000 pts on Fury3 at even the hardest levels.

    Other type games I just die in 15 seconds trying to figure out what the rules are and what is happening. I am pathetic.

    As for the most important game for the 1980's and 90's, I'd say Pac-Man or my favorite of that time, Defender. Now, it's going to be Starcraft or Warcraft.

    Frodo Lives Luke, I am NOT your father!

    The game that really got me into RPGs was 'Dragon Warrior' for the NES. Then I started playing a lot of 'Bards Tale' 1, 2, and 3 for the Apple II. The first game I remember getting addicted to was a silly little game called 'Below the Root' also for the Apple II.

    I still have yet to find a game that has taken up more of my life then 'Final Fantasy 7'. However 'Soldiers of Anarchy' comes a close second.

    I would have to say the most important game is Wolfenstein 3d

    Although jet games have always been my fav.

    My first was the orginal F-15 on my Atari 800xl

    also Blue Max on there as well.

    But I have also logged seat time in F-19, Flight of the Intruder, Megafortress (which still runs just peachy under xp)

    Also another good game is M1 Tank Platoon, I played the crap out of that on my old Tandy 1000tl 286

    Ditto that on my Tandy 1000tx. I think I probably had all of the Microprose simulator games of that era.

    amjezioro Abstract is good

    Asteroids, Dragonslayer and River Raid for the Atari2600(i think that was the model)

    The scary part- my parents still have it at their house- and if it were to be plugged in, I think It might actually work. It was retired when my mom got the original nintendo.

    I may have to find out about that....

    Back in the day, I was a diehard Galagala fiend. I even bought my own quarter eating monster for the den. :)

    Lucky you Coot! Musta been nice to play Galaga right in your own home on a full size ;) :thumbsup:

    I used to love Galaxian and Space Invaders when I'd go to the arcade.

    My three-year-old's favorite Gamecube disk is the one that has all of the classics on it: Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Galaxian.

    Elspeth Beware the Fire Dragon

    I remember Kaboom, fish debry and Math Grand Prix on the Atari. Then I start riding horses and showing and that took up a lot of time. So i didn't play many video games until I married Braz.

    Now it is WoW, D&D Online, casino games and my new toy that I got early for my birthday a PS2 with Kingdom hearts I & II

    I still get annoyed with games, throw the controllor at Braz and he gets me through it with 1 try. :banghead:
