Not necessarily my youth, per se, but Command HQ, as well.

I just had to respond to this, im turning my head and looking fondly at my copy of AvP2 on my bookshelf right now. I 110% agree with you on the scare factor. I have never ever had a game make me almost crap my pants like that game did,, holy hell was it immersive.

In my opinion the marine's campaign was the best , they realy got the motion sensor and pitch black room thing right in that game.

Probably the three most infuential games in my youth were, in reverse order for added drama...

Carrier Command,
Dungeon Master,
...
...
And...
Civilisation!

I sank so many hours into those games that it's just not funny.

Before then it would mainly have been Tank on the Atari console. They also had a racing car one that you controlled with funny paddle controllers that I played the heck out of. At the arcades I think Gauntlet and Bubble Bobble would have been my biggest coin-gobblers.

I love retro games. I have a massive collection of Atari ST compact disks (what they used to call the floppy disk compilations the pirates of those days used to make).
