            I forgot about Turok! I loved that game on the N64.

            Oh, and totally dismissed my favorite game system to date, the Dreamcast. This system was epic, it supported mouse and keyboard, and had a web browser. I don't think to this day, that I have had more fun, than I did with my Dreamcast.


            Soul Calibur
            Sega Bass/Marine Fishing
            Phantasy Star Online
            Unreal Tournament (UT 99')
            House of the Dead 2
            NFL 2K
            Soul Reaver
            Seaman (used the microphone pretty cool)
            Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
            Skies of Arcadia (Didn't even start playing that until 2004)
            Jet Set Radio

            This list would never end, if I kept going.

              This on PC was one of my first and favourite games. I was so sad the day I went to play it and discovered that the disc had a massive scratch on it, then my dad bought me Racer Revenge for the PS2. :)
              I also played:
              Combat Flight Simulator 1
              Various racing (mostly rally) games, including Colin McRae Rally, Richard Burns Rally, and the TOCA Touring Cars series.

              Those were the games of my proper childhood, then later on (i.e. around 10 and above) I played games like Medal of Honour (Frontline on PS2, Allied Assault on PC), Call of Duty 2, and Star Wars Battlefront.

                  Final Fantasy 3 for the SNES!! I played that game through at least 3 times, and must have spent hundreds of hours on it.

                              @Undead, I forget so many Dreamcast games...

                              Resident Evil Code Veronica & Crazy Taxi

                              Dreamcast should never have failed like it did. It was light years ahead of the PS2 and orignal Xbox, the connectivity, the mouse and keyboard, the Tamgotchi mini plug in thing with the LCD screen, the graphics etc. For my shame I traded my fairly large collection of Dreamcast stuff in when game production slowed. The chap in the game shop was so keen to take it off me for himself that he gave me virtually full price for everything I had!
