    The Amiga had a fantastic series of Freeware games disks known as the Assassins collection -

    Assassins Games 1 - 200

    Some, in fact a lot, of these games where of top notch (at the time) almost commercial quality. They are still available for free legal download (Back to the Roots - Amiga Culture Directory Project) for use in an Amiga emulator.

    The breakout clone, Poing (disk 35), was particularly addictive. And, since Duck Hunt reminded me of all this, Zombie Apocalypse (disk 118) was also a lot of gory fun

    nice! I won't mention Leisure Suit Larry as earlier posted but wouldnt Rise of the Triads have been a bit unsuitable? As great a game as it was, it was merely an excuse to marry the biggest possible guns with the most possible gore

    Most things Amiga, above all anything by the awesome Bitmap Brothers (hence my avatar); my fave was Gods, now a fine Java remake here complete with level editor.

    Ah wow... someone revived this thread.

    I'm only 21 (last saturday !) and I've played nearly every game listed in this thread.

    Games worthy of a mention:
    ZX Spectrum;
    Lords of Midnight
    Doomdark's Revenge
    The Hobbit

    Atari/Amiga;
    Space Crusade (for the Warhammer fans)
    Xenon 2
    Populous (already mentioned but definately needs a re-mention!) and Populous II.
    Powermonger
    Deuteros
    Mega-lo-Mania

    I'm sure I'll think of some more, that haven't been mentioned, from my childhood when I can remember.
