Shocked! oO Question Eek! Sad Crazy Crying

For me, it's

Yesterday I played this game again since, like, 15 years.
Before I knew it, I was playing with 5 characters at once and doing all kinds of stuff.
Cool game!

Daiva 5
This game is even more fun when you know what to do! Smile

Treasure of Usas
Yes, I'm very ashamed.

Xak 2
I used to shun this game in the past. Now I played it anyway, but my version is bugged. In the final battle, the sprites look very odd and I keep getting hit by something invisible.

Altler Wars 2
Partly due to the fact that the game tends to crash while fighting the Emperor of Pinguin.

Mon Mon Monster
How to beat stage 4 remains a mystery...

I'm still lacking the mad bad-ass skills to survive stage 5.

Final Zone
Yes, I'm one of those rare people to think this game doesn't suck!

Mobile Planet

The final stage still owns me, after all these years.

Did you also experience that getting older doesn't necessarily mean that your gaming skills will improve along with your age?
I seem to have gotten worse... Crying

SD-Snatcher Sad (Yes yes yes, hit me very hard! But when I became a scener - meaning composing all day - it meant my gaming days had ended there)

Dragonslayer 6

And of course another truckload o' games.., most notably the Microcabins and a number o' Compiles.

Yes, how could I forget Dragonslayer 6.
When I put the game aside for some time while in the final dungeon, I totally got lost at the next session and never quite got to it anymore...

I don't think my gaming days will ever end no matter what my remaining duties may be.
Maybe not even when fate leads me to an oil rig or on the moon. Smile

Lots of times I find myself playing this-or-that game once more, when it's not only for leisure and nostalgia, but in particular to listen to the music again. ^_^

But... SD-Snatcher? Dude... Tongue

Well... You are not the only one... I think that some day I should play SD-Snatcher, Metall Gear2 or Illusion City trough. First 2 games I've started and played about 15 minutes from start, but Illusion City is not familiar to me at all (exept great music trough Micro Music) Eek!Eek!Eek!

Illusion City's still on my (very short) list...
I played and finished most of the games I really like. Especially Salamander Wink

Games like SD-snatcher and DS6 are most definitely worth playing every second. Brill games.

Snatcher and Illusion City... But waiting until they're completely translated... (AFAIK they're still not finished, right??)

Oh and maybe also stuff like Fray. But I'm not going to play games in Japanese anymore (after finishing Xak 1 in Japanese about 10 years ago), so when more translations appear, the list will be bigger Smile

EDIT: ow, it appears that Snatcher's translation has been finished since a long time already Smile
Illusion City is still stuck at 74%.... Come on Adriano! Please finish it!!

Heh, either I beat the game already, or I didn't like it enough to start playing at all Tongue. One exception may be Penguin Wars 2, because this game built up so much frustration, that I got too angry before being able to finish it. That game really is nasty!

I also never got to finishing Illusion City, but I can't remember why.

I am on my way to finish "Magical Kid Wiz", but I still cannot understand what should I do in Round 3 to find the 3rd dragon in the clouds. I jump higher and higher, the time ends, but dragon's castle doesn't appear.
