Well, then you may actually not be completely new. We're now in our 22nd year :D

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

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!

Hi there,

I started gaming back in the 80s with a VC-20 followed by an Amiga 500.
I have lots of memories of these old days and there are lots of games I would like to have a look at again... This could be the place...

greets
Peter

I keep thinking I should re-visit Sword of Fargoal on the V(I)C-20 and cover it on the site :D Any other games you would recommend on that system?

Hi there,

I am trying to get Fugger II and landed here. It seems almost impossible to get the game nowadays without paying crazy amounts on ebay. I loved the game as a kid and later until my sister accidentaly broke the game cd.

Best

I think it's impossible to sell nowadays, due to the claims of the real Fugger family. It's by a margin the most sought after game here on this website.
