To me, racing games and Dyna Blaster will forever remain my favorite childhood games. Sure, I eventually got to shooters (playing multiplayer Counter Strike on your own is...interesting), but nothing can compare to driving around in circles in MSDOS, haha.

So, what's the game - or games - that YOU think of when you hear "childhood"? ^o^ Do you still play it/them?

I think my/our childhood games can be divided to chapters, each of them associated with some kind of console, or eventually with a PC.
After 1989, when the market became more free to western products, my father gave us for Xmas a Atari 2600. Better said it's chinese knockoff (they just started their huge industrial revolution that time) but it had a big plus compared the original, it contained hundreds of games on its motherboard. So me and my bother spent perhaps hundreds of hours playing River Rair, which was obviously the best game from all.
After it we bought a NES from our own saved money and the the road became open to hits like Contra 1-2, Contra Force, Goonies, Ninja Brothers, Heavy Barrel and Kage. Oh my, good times.
And after some years father brought home a used 486 PC where we constantly played Raptor - Call of the Shadows. Oh, the 16bit Sound Blaster card, that was some difference compared consoles!
To modern PC games I came much later, basically almost in adulthood and that would be a very long list. What I still remember, that the 1st modern game what I completed was Gorky 17.

I used to play some of them trough emulator, as long neither my Atari or NES works anymore. But to say the trouth I like newer games more and not just for the graphics. No classic ever gave me such enjoyment as did Skyrim, Borderlands or Saints Row.

The constant bashing of my ecchi art and my haters formed me to what I am now - a full fledged hentai artist.

Ahh, I never got to play on anything other that a PC (nope, not even a tamagotchi, lol), so I'm not too familiar with consoles. I do remember there being quite a lot of knockoffs being sold here, both consoles and the games for them. With game CDs, you'd sometimes get scammed into buying blank CDs, and good luck tracking down the guy you bought them from. Never happened to me, since I either borrowed them from friends or they came with every new (second-hand) PC I got.

I remember playing Tetris a lot, too (since it was on a second-hand PC, it was a more...adult version of Tetris). And Lemmings, which straight up made me cry when I got to a level I couldn't pass.

Supaplex was also a blast; some levels were easy, while others required a lot of trial and error and insane synchronizing between what you did and how the environment reacted. The cool thing about it is that you can skip levels and come back to them whenever you want, so you aren't stuck on just one (though you can only skip 3 levels at most, so you have to finish them eventually to free up "level skip" slots). I still haven't finished it ;___;

I consider myself a heavy PC user as well. After I bought my first gaming PC, I never really looked back, it maybe be a bit more expensive as a console, but it has so much more uses with software and internet and let's say directly, as a digital artist, I would need one anyways.
It can be easily repaired, it can be upgraded unless is not some really oldie, plus games are much cheaper as well. Of course it requires certain knowledge and is not like a console what is enough to plug into the electricity and play. Personally I couldn't even play Skyrim without mods, which is also possible only on PC.
A few weeks ago I have seen a review (interested me since I own the same GPU as they had in the article) that the mid-range Geforce GTX 750 Ti already beats all next gen consoles with a 25-30% difference. And thats quite something.

Don't worry Pande, even if you missed some good games, you can easily play those now trough a emulator.

Regarding my Atari, I think it was advertised as home computer, even if it lacked the typical features. Anything being able to run games was a pretty new thing that time, so the difference wasn't so obvious as later in 90s-2000s

That Atari had some really weird games. For example I think this one would be now banned in some countries, as long a certain group of ppl would find it offending, especially in the states. :P

Super Mario RPG / Super Mario All-Stars / Super Metroid / Star Fox for the SNES.
Rad Racer for the NES.

Sometimes I get the urge to play them if I'm not doing anything else. I use an emulator for Rad Racer and Star Fox since they aren't released for the Virtual Console.

The galaxy of AZD is in progress...

Final Fantasy, Legend Of Zelda, Super Mario Bros., Cruisin' USA, Mario Kart, Breath Of Fire, and Need For Speed was the series that I most played. Course if I went with favorite games of each series I'd say Final Fantasy 7, Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past, Super Mario Bros. 3, Cruisin' USA, Mario Kart 64, Breath Of Fire 3, and Need For Speed Hot Pursuit or something along those lines. I would still play em all, but I don't have a system to play Final Fantasy 7, Breath Of Fire 3, or Need For Speed Hot Pursuit on and I don't have a clue where my Cruisin' USA game is or if my 64 even works after setting up for so long, but I do have Legend Of Zelda A Link To The Past and Super Mario Bros. 3 on my Wii U and the Zelda one is the current game I am playing.

Instead of a sign that says "Do Not Disturb" I need one that says "Already Disturbed Proceed With Caution"

Mine was Mario!, Street Fighter, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Pokemon Red and Blue!

As the Light begins to intensify, so does my misery,
and I wonder how it is possible to hurt so much when nothing is wrong.
