Welcome, David! I have some fond memories of the Plus/4 as well, the first Aldi computer here in Germany ;) At the time, of course, I didn't really know that most games on that machine were stripped down ports of other systems like the C64. Hope you enjoy your browsing!

Hello, my name is David, I am from Germany. I found a link to your page on heise.de

My Video Games History:

As far as I can remember I started gaming with Nintendo's game&watch handhelds. Later my parents bought an Atari 2600 home console and this is when gaming with my friends started: Centipede, Pac-Man, Defender, Mr. Do! etc.
After this the personal computer era begun in our home: Commodore Plus4 (Scramble...), the beloved C64 (Airborne Rangers, Pirates...) and the beloved Atari ST (Larry 2, North & South, Ultima V...). And then of course the IBM-PC compatible MS-DOS machines (Railroad Tycoon, Wing Commander, Rampart, PGA Tour Golf...).
The highlight for me was the feeling of joy while playing with my friends and the marvelling at the pixel graphics (they still fascinate me to the day).
Since then I always come back to looking at the classic games and from time to time I even play one of them (for example Wizardry VI Bane of the Cosmic Forge, although I could not quite bring myself to finish it, because it was too much of the same in the end...).
I am very glad sites like The Good Old Days exist, so I can learn more about these wonderful games of the past and dwell in memories.

Thank You!

David

That's quite a jump, from Space Invaders and Pacman (1970s arcade games) straight to F1GP and Alone in the Dark! Seems you basically missed the complete 80s ;)

Hello people,

I am Telev from Belgium and I am 43 years old.
I do not remember my very first computer, in 1990 I was 12 years old, was a Nashuatec with a DOS 3.1 if I remember correctly. I spent a lot of time on Space Invader and Pacman. Subsequently I had a 386sx33 followed by a 486dx33. With these machines I spent many hours on Fomula One Grand Prix, as well as the Alone in the dark series. And then I discovered the point & click from LucasArt.
I still play regularly at Monkey Island or day of the tentacle. Great games.

Regards

Just found this place through looking for old Sherlock Holms games that don't appear to be sold anymore. I remember playing old computer games in the 80's on my Packard bell and Tandy. I really love the point and click adventure game types that don't seem to be popular anymore.

Greeting to you all. I have just found this place that exactly fits to me :D

I still remember the good old days when I was sitting in front of a TV watching the flickering of ZX81 cassette game loading (and trying again, because something went wrong ;) )

The c64 is one of my best gaming memories with game designs that are painfully missed today. As a gamer, I, of course, continued to play on the Amiga and PC.

Hopefully, some memory become alive here...

Or short: Hello!
