OH MY.  This takes me back…!

Some memories:

  • Doom: Crashing the college computer lab while playing it over the crappy SPX/IPX stack.
  • Wolfenstein: Playing the hell out of it at the computer store on a demo machine.
  • Descent: Getting so effing lost when all I had to do was turn my ship over.
  • Duke Nukem 3D: Pipe bombs and low-res strippers.
  • Rise of the Triad: Atomic Bark.
  • Command & Conquer: Easily discovered that there was a limit on tanks in one level.
  • Quake: Replacing the already awesome Trent Reznor soundtrack with my own Slayer and/or Kiss it Goodbye CD during gameplay.
  • Star Wars: Dark Forces: My friend (who is a Star Wars freak staying over and up all night playing this, even after I went to bed.
  • Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: The Babel fish puzzle.  Damn the Babel fish puzzle.  Damn it straight to hell.
  • Bioforge: I think I got to the 3rd puzzle in the game and gave up…I remember firing a cannon, and that is it.
