I ended up playing such games as Homeworld and Age of Empire 2 when I was young, which easily became my favorites at the time, though I wasn't exactly very good at them.

Cel Damage

Freaking sweet game.
I KNOW RIGHT? I wish they made a pc version, I'd play the *** out of it

I was thinking of buying a ps2 console again and all my old games, including Jak 3(or something)

When we finally got a PC it was Doom and Dune II.

Before then Metal Gear on the MSX and Mario Bros on the NES.

There was also a pizza place with an arcade hall. I always played Rolling Thunder. I should try and find a Rolling Thunder game and give it a special place in my living room.

Spoiler
Doom:


Dune 2:


Metal Gear: (only mine was all in green)


Mario Bros: (I was always Luigi)


Rolling Thunder:

I really loved MS paint when I was about three. Grandiose battles between the spray can and the fill function kept be occupied whenever I visited my mother's office. Will the blue wall hold or will green overtake the whole sheet? Oh no, an eraser attacks from the rear! Expand the protective circle!

Now I'm nostalgic...

I was that, but I used Rome Total War to my advantage-will the red Romans defeat the green Gauls?
Oh, and I played star wars battlefront 2 quite a bit. It's sad that Pandemic got shut down before another one could be made :(

It would seem so! I also played a lot of Comanche and I was so happy when Fate of Atlantis was available on steam, since I lost my old copy on floppy disks.  ;D

Though I love civilization now, I never actually had the game back then. I did play the bejeezus out of Sim City 2000 though.

I think Comanche was the first game that I had a joystick for. I remember playing Retaliator before then, but with keyboard. Or perhaps I bought it for X-wing. Can't remember. :P
