I have an older Xbox and a Wii but I have generally played games on the P.C.
Here are 13 of the games I have enjoyed over the years:
2. Morrowind. Also an RPG game put out by Bethesda, released in 2002. This is the only RPG I ever played on the Xbox. Actually this game was the reason I even bought an Xbox. Yes, it was worth it. In this game the hero saves the land from annihilation.
3. King's Quest series. These are old games that involved puzzles. They were touted as "good for girls" because they weren't shoot 'em ups. The series chronicled a royal family and their trials and tribulations. Mostly the hero roamed around picking up items with which to solve puzzles. This was a DOS game.
5. Wolfenstein. I'm not talking about the most recent release of this, but the earlier versions. This last version of the game, Wolfenstein 3D, was released in 1992, again by Apogee Software. In this game, the hero must make his way from a prison camp and outside, taking down as many Nazis as possible along the way.
6. Might and Magic series. These RPGs were released by New World Computing, which eventually became The 3DO Company. There were 10 games in this series, but I only played the last five. The games were mostly fantasy but sometimes a little science fiction crept in and suddenly you had not a wand available to you but also a laser blaster of some kind. These games were also released in the early to middle 1990s.
7. Heroes of Might and Magic series. This was a spin-off from the Might and Magic series, as you might guess. The first games were released in 1995. In these games the hero undertook various quests to save something or the other, and there was lots of magic involved.
9. Duke Nukem series. Another Apogee Software series that I enjoyed. The first Duke Nukem came about in 1991 and there were numerous games that followed. Duke had to stop some bad guy and save the world.
10. Commander Keen series. Developed by Id Software and released by Apogee Software in the early 1990s, this series featured little Billy Blaze, an 8-year-old kid who travels through space and becomes Commander Keen. He saves the world a lot.
12. Area 51. This is the only arcade game on my list today, but this was one of my favorites. It was released by Midway in 1995 and later it was released for PC as well. In this game, you are a squadron leader shooting down aliens from another planet. I spent a lot of quarters on this game, mostly when we were on vacation.
What video games have you enjoyed, if any?
