    all these 8 bit games are very well :) but the ultimate antique game has yet to be brought up. Maybe the graphics are too hot for you to handle, but hasnt anyone played elite? imho the best game ever (for its time ). So if you want to prove yourself a truly l33t elite playing l33t gamer, you must answer these questions.

    1) What ship in elite was banned for being too deadly?

    2) What rank came above "above average" in the rankings?

    3) What type of government ruled the Lave system?

    Elite wasnt really an obscure game, the sequals were though

    What was the final mission in FFE? :)

    Hmm, some pre-Wolfenstein-id-games:

    1.) What was the name of the Alien race that wanted to take over the galaxy in Commander Keen 4&5?

    2.) The first enemy type you met in Keen 4 were yellow slugs. You could get killed by touching them and...?

    3.) How could you finish Keen 5?

    4.) Who was the person you had to rescue in Keen 6?

    The Aliens in Keen 4 & 5 were called the Shikadi, I think.

    I only played it 'cause I got it free with some peripheral.

    urgh, don't mention that sub platform nonsense in the same thread as the god-like Elite

    if you've not played it or it's sequals then point your browers to google and play "find the file"

    Right:tup:

    Three more to go!


    It was the one "obscure old game" that came to my mind 'cause I got it with my first computer and played through it dunnohowmany times...of course it's nonsense, but it was very funny, nontheless :D

    Shouldn't be a comparison to Elite which was certainly ahead of its time but which I haven't played yet, unfortunately :(

    I must concur. Elite ( not its sequles, although they were much better than the original imho ) was the most ground breaking game ever. It invented 3D, the simulation and open-endedness all in one go :\

    Trying to work out how not to make the mission crash :p

    (assuming you applied the 'bug fix ' to the game which actually introduced new and exciting bugs but actually made it possible to buy a new ship without crashing the game)

    FFE tarnished the series for ever.

    True it was buggier than a whores panties :)

    Frontier had that cool 'sell your ship with passengers onboard and get the money but keep the ship' bug... class 3 military drive & plasma cannon here we come :D

    I remember ****ing around with the crash hyperspace on that game and ending up several thousand light years off in the top of the map... I saw the strangest looking ship but it got away from meh before I could id it

    that game was so cool
