Waiting hurts my soul...
I think stage 4 was mostly white, or whitish, unless my memory is failing me.
So there was this game that I had when I was a kid. It was windows 98 or ME I think. It was a racing game with spaceships and you had several characters you could choose from all with differing ships. There were different tracks and they had shortcuts you could find much like HydroThunder. The thing that stuck out the most though is that during the entire race your opponents would continually hurl insults and trash talk at you over your radio. Each character had a different personality. One was a pair of girls (maybe twins) that rode together but unfortunately that's all I can remember. Thanks for any help!

I'm terrible at guessing PC games, but check out these lists:

hey everyone, only just signed up but have had some enjoyment watching some runs on here for a while now, don't have the time to do them myself but love to watch them for some reason.

anyway I have quite a few games from my childhood that I don't remember the names off but there was one I used to play constantly but can hardly remember anything from it, and it was only a demo  too, parents were pretty tight demos made up alot of my early pc gaming.

all i can remember is there being 3 levels in the demo (95%) may have been two, no more. You were some sort of machine, pretty sure flying and you had a mission to do each level. I vaguely remember there being some type of bomb like thing you had to plant at the end of first level and I guess blow it up. For some reason I have no recollection of the 2nd level, but for the 3rd featured a boat or a submarine you had to plant bombs on? Ofcourse this was the demo so this may not have been the actual order.
I played this as a kid circa 1998-99, and was on a demo disc with 4 other games although I can't recall any of there names not that it would help.

I have tried looking over gamefaq for anytype of sci fi games and youtubed any name that sounded familar but have had no luck as yet, for some reason I was always thought it started with a letter near the end of the alphabet but reall unsure. with how little I have provided I doubt anyone on here is going to help me as the game was probably not even popular.
would love to track it down for that nostalgic feeling.

The only other slight detail I can remember was the first level on some of the walls there were posters of something, something like a movie poster etc

thanks for any help
Was this a sidescroller, 2D/3D, fps, rts,... ?

I have a question for identifying a game...  I have no idea why but a random flashback appeared in my head recently of a game that I can ONLY remember the opening cinematic of.  I don't remember who the characters were, but you're outside of a pizza place and I suppose the good guy gets kidnapped and there is a 'Closed until further notice' sign placed on the storefront.  The bad guy escapes through an elevator in the phone booth and you follow him...  That's where my memory ends.  My friend said he had a vague memory of a game like that but also remembered nothing.  Can anyone here remember and help me out?


Oh, I know this one!

It's Skunny: Save Our Pizzas!

Here's a video of the game with the cutscene you described:

Do you remember what magazine the disc came with?

if it wasnt for the sci fi i would guess commandos behind enemy lines
Might be magic...

Just remembered one. It's a game similar to Bomberman but for the PC around mid to late 90s. That's all I know.


Dyna Blaster?

Quote from CriminallyVulgar:
Asking on behalf of a non-gamer friend, I have no idea what she's talking about:

when we were little kiddies
there was this game
like propa old school
and it was like..a trail to grandma's house or something
grandma's house?
grandma's trail?
grandma quest or some shit?

i mean like super kid kid
like, i'm talking about 8 years old
you had to type shit in too like in different bits
and you had to pick decisions?
like you had options to go here or there

Also, there may have been a lake


By "8 years old", she means late 90s.
I do apologise for the form, she's a bit excitable.
I cut out some of the less relevant content.


King's Quest 2 sort of fits, except for the era - would have been 80s rather than 90s. They did a remake of this game though in the early 2000s (but no typing in that one)

There was an old DOS game I would play in school. It was like Mario, but when you hit the question blocks it would ask you Math & English Questions.
Obscure games ftw

I want to say that's Word Rescue or Number Rescue but it probably isn't.

Hello all. The game I am looking for game on a Games for Windows 98 or 95 disk, or a Softkey Games Disc for the same platform. The game was in space and you could choose your color and then you chose the other 3 robots colors and aggresiveness. It was a wireframe game, and you started off on your planet. Your ship was an arrow and you flight was affected by the planets gravity. You have a command ship that floated in orbit around your planet. The objective was to fly to uninhabbited planets and land on them. This would make them change color and become your planet. The a barge would fly from your planet to the new one and take it over. Then you go and attack the other color's planets and take them over as well. It was a very simple game and I have spent over 6 years trying to find it.  If anyone know what this game is please please please please let me know. LoL I am going to have to admit myself to a looney bin if I keep going on these 14 hour searches for it lol.

I've played this or something similar... Check out Space Bucks
No thats not it. Way more simple interface then that
wireframe as well
Gimme some sugar Shaggy!
Well... I'm 18 right now and the game I'm thinking of I haven't played since Grade 1, so since I was 6. It is a computer game (can't remember if it was PC, DOS, Apple, or any other PC), I remember it was level based. All of the levels were gray, and whenever you finished a level, you would get a new item in a room which was basically the way to count your score (For example, after say the 20th level a giant throne chair would be put in the room).

That's all I can remember
i know it was on sega dreamcast and the main charachter was named "gratze" or ""kratze" or something like that. he had a big sword. it was like an action rpg.. anaone know?

Hi there,

A game I played when I was a kid came back in my mind and I would like to play it again but I don't remember the name.
I played it in 1996 or something, maybe 1997-1998 but before 2000 for sure.
It was a puzzle/adventure game like Myst and I think it was made by Sierra, but I'm not sure since I did some research and didn't find what I was looking for.
I don't really have any accurate memory about the game so it's hard to give details, I'll edit if I remember anything usefull.

Any ideas?

EDIT: "Lighthouse: The Dark Being" kind of looks like it, but I'm not really sure.
Forsaken: That's not a whole lot of data to go with. I'll just pump out a few off the top of my head, maybe they can trigger subconscious thoughts Wink Amerzone, Syberia, RHEM, Aura: Fate of the Ages?
Thanks TheVoid for trying to help me, but it wasn't one of those games.
A bit more details: The gameplay was exactly list Myst and it was first-person.
I remember some futuristic environment with peaceful creatures.
Exoray
Lighthouse didn't really have peaceful creatures neither was it very futuristic, so that's probably not it then.

Did you have an inventory in the game?
Did it have any voice acting or was it text only?
Can you remember any sort of puzzle or problem that you were faced with?
Nevermind, I found it!

It was Rama. Smiley

Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage?

Not an RPG, but he does have a Big Ass Sword and I suppose Guts is close enough to Gratze
