Inspired by an IRC conversation of first games and oldest awesome games, a new game:
(I hope this works out)
* Tell us what your first ever game played was and what you thought about it.
* comment on (1 of) the games someone above you mentioned. What did you think about it?
So, as kick-off:
Game: Prince of Persia (1989)
Fun(ny) facts: Played it on an old monochrome 486? laptop that could rightly be called a BRICK
Was good/bad because: Quite an interesting game and somewhat novel at the time since jump-mechanics where mostly correct according to physics (no insanely high jumps like with super mario). Also, you got 1 hour to finish the game, or die trying, and while you COULD skip to the next level with SHIFT+L, the penalty was that you'd only have at most 15 minutes left afterwards
And who hasn't run it with "prince megahit" for unlimited level-jumps just to see how it ended? (though i did eventually manage to finish it start to end without cheating)
One of the most annoying fights in the game. How do you fight off an immortal skeleton?
So, what was your first game? any funny things about them you'd like to tell us?
