I'd forgotten about a number of these games. I used to play Rails West all the time. Patiently waiting for the dot matrix continuous feed printer to slowly go back and forth. Then there it is. Boom Year! Stock is on the rise. The joy.

Another game I spent a lot of time is SunDog Frozen Legacy. I enjoyed it quite a bit. The emulator is good too.

i played this a boat load on the apple IIc and totally loved it. The issue i had was that the game/disk kept getting corrupted somehow and i had to keep returning it for a new one.

fun game though.

When I was a kid, the games that sucked me in were the nerd games. I spent hours playing "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego," You'll know this one if your from the U.S. or Canada, "Oregon Trail."

Dune on the Amiga. Every couple of months I get the urge to go back and play, even though the game can be beaten in a few hours.

Extreme Violence was simple and ridiculously addictive. I have never grown tired of watching my enemy explode into a patch of blood.

Gods. First game I ever completed and it still holds up well. The music was awesome as well.

Chaos Engine. Remake it now.
