The discussion in this thread (CRZ Conquers Another Video Game) that turned to "Old games rock" made me want to ask this question... What video game systems, old computers, and old game playing things that will allow you to play old games on their original hardware do you own (video game systems ain't gots to be old though)?

My happy fun list is as follows:

1 Atari XEGS (1 joystick and zapper, and a few games)
1 Nintendo Entertainment System (2 gamepads, zapper with orange handle, 3 games)
1 Sega Master System (1 gamepad... only the built in games. The unit with the secret maze game, which is kinda fun)
1 Sega Genesis (second model, 2 controllers [a 3 button and 6 button], and like 8 games... including Gunstar Heroes which rocks immensely. System cost me 20 bucks)
2 Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems (3 controllers total, like 10 games or so. got 2 cause I got the NES, SMS and SNES for 30 bucks as a package deal)
1 Nintendo 64 (2 controllers maybe 5 games).
1 Game Boy Advance (1 game)

currently my NES is hooked up. SMB rocks to the extreme, baby. I want a Pro Wrestling cartridge, due to the awesomeness of that game. I hope to add an atari 2600 to the list sooner rather than later.

Well, I have an SNES and Sega Genesis in my apartment here. At my parents' house up north, I still have an Atari 2600... haven't used it recently, so I'm not sure how well it still works. Also, I don't know if we still have working joysticks for the damn thing. When last I checked, though, our Intellivision still worked.

And I'm still rather proud of having scored over 2,000,000 points in "TRON Deadly Discs." And it's still kinda fun to play "Beauty and the Beast" (Donkey Kong in different threads, figuratively speaking), climb all the way up to the top of the building, and then jump off the side to watch your man take the long fall all the way back down.
Edit: Ack. The arcade game was called "Discs of TRON." The Intellivision TRON game in particular was "TRON Deadly Discs." My bad.

I loved Murder on the Mississippi. I always knew who did it, but was never able to solve it until I learned the joys of the internet and the walkthroughs contained within.

But for me, nothing entertained me, and entertains me still, like Infocom games.

Wishbringer was the first I solved completely on my own and it's got a special place in my heart. The varied games in Moonmist. Nord & Bert's fun with catch phrases and spoonerisms. Planetfall, with Floyd the robot. Hitchhiker's Guide. Deadline.

And the Great Underground Empire of Zork. If you have no clue what I'm taking about, experience Zork here:

I have an Intellivision with like 60+ games, and an adapter to play Atari 2600 games on it, with about 50 more games there. I still fiddle around with it occassionally. Nothing beats hours and hours of Astrosmash!

I have an NES that I play with too, mostly old roleplaying games like Dragon Warrior, Destiny of an Emperor and the First Final Fantasy.

Commodore 64? Did someone say, "Commodore 64"?

Can't say anything about Murder on the Mississippi, but I can say a few other things.

EPYX Summer Olympics
Mastertronic - The Captive
Impossible Mission

And no C64 game list would be complete without...

Mail. Order. Monsters.

And if only I still had my Commodore Vic-20... :D

    EPYX Summer Olympics

Summer Games II was the first game I ever got for the C64.

    Impossible Mission

Another visitor? Stay awhile. Stay FOREVER!

I beat the sequel, but never could beat the original.

More fun C64 games that I thought of:

Space Taxi "Pad 7 Please"
Microleague Wrestling
Street Sports Baseball
Little Computer People (precursor to The Sims)

Remember the OLD Commodore Vic 20 text adventure games? They can be played online, I forget the address though. (Just do a Google search for "text adventure games online" and you'll eventually find the site of the guy who designed these.) I still can't figure out that damn Dracula game.

Did anyone have an Amiga 500?


(P.S. Check out for all the 80s Commodore 64 nostalgia you can handle. Just remember to play the Thriller album while you're playing the games.)
