I played a lot of games as a kid, but there were a few games during my rat bastard childhood that just had me glued to my computer ANYTIME i was “home sick from school”. These are games that basically raised me. Many dinners got cold next to my keyboard and mouse. Many errands were missed, though to be fair, i didnt really run “errands” as a kid.
I can still hear my dads voice booming down the stairs “David!, let someone else use the computer!”. Now keep in mind this was pre year 2000; the only other reason to use a computer was for ICQ or mIRC accounts, so I didnt see why anyone but me would even need it.
These are my top 10 pre Y2K PC games
Alright so the plan is to round this list up to a top 10. Firstly so it properly pertains to this category of the blog and secondly because it damn near drove me insane to only have 5 of my favorites listed. These will go from 10 to 6.
First I want to give honorable mentions to a few titles:
Mortal Kombat II, Mario 64, Shadows of the Empire (64), Star Fox, Lemmings, Adventures of Lolo, Mass Effect, EA’s NHL Series (since the beginning), Final Fantasy X, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, Flashback, Bart’s Nightmare, Mega Man, Dr. Mario. This never ends…
With careless readers in mind, I will try to make the blurbs on these last 5 games considerably shorter. Onward!
