    I only have 2 that really stick in my mind and I would love to play them again.

    PC/PS1: FF7
    Dreamcast: I can't remember the name but you are some Japanese guy and your father was killed and you are walking around seeking revenge. I think it was called Shinmu or something to that effect.

    Only the one really.

    PS1 - Grandia.

    Best RPG i've ever played, shame the discs go bad so quickly. But saying that, it's the only game I've ever bought twice.

    Good lord - I didn't think anyone else knew about this game!

    I went to school with the son of the guy who founded and ran Durrell software. I got all the games for free, and was basically their in house play tester (I was 7 at the time) :D

    They just don't make them that good anymore. I can imagine years coming and going, I'll be going back to Mario Bros 3 quicker than Galaxy or even 64. :)

    MRU you beauty! Fate of Atlantis was an absurdly classic game of my childhood! We used to play through it on my friends Amiga, one night I was too scared to leave my friends house as I was so spooked out. I don't even think it was meant to be intentionally scary but the scene where you get the key or something out of the ribcage in Atlantis just gave me nightmares. Urgh.

    thinking about it i guess my list isn't that spectacular

    NES: Nintendo World Cup (i know mario bros 3 and everything but this game made me play so long that i actually got blisters on my thumbs .. and yet i continued to play)
    SNES: Super Mario Land (didn' have that much games for it ... and Super Soccer of course)
    N64: International Superstar Soccer 98
    character creation, total awesome through pass system ... ridiculous control possibilities unsurpassed for years because the team split up after the ISS 2000 N64 game ... Goldene Eye and perfect dark,Z:OOT were great but ISS 98 beat them all
    Ps1: Gran Turismo 2 ... i actually don't remember any of the other games i had
    Gamecube: Smash Bros Melee and Burnout
    Game Gear: Columns
    Game Boy: Prince Vailant ... i don't remember the exact name but it was some sort of strategy/ action mix
    PC: Civilization 2 ... legendary
    and apart of that Panzer General, Silent Hunter, Close Combat and flight sims etc. all those games which are made too little today

    I must have completed that game about 50 times or more when I was a lad. I absolutely loved it. :)

    Did you continue as a tester in later life?

    PC: Starflight. I actually have the original disks (360k types). I don't think I have ever found its equal. Starflight 2 was great as well. I own a Tandy TX which I got just to play this game :)

    PC: Any Master of Orion game, yeah even #3.

    Which brings me to my question, where can I get a copy of the MAC version of Master of Orion 3? I can't find it anywhere except amazon and that is for used versions for SIXTY dollars!

    Typo? Did you mean Gameboy, not SNES? Super Mario Land only came out on the Gameboy....even if you played the actual game using the Gameboy cartridge adapter for the SNES..... :confused:
