    Ooh, another one: Dungeon Master!

    The genre may be forgotten by time but dungeon crawler RPG's like this ruled my 90's, and this was the (as far as I recall) the first true one of its kind.
    It paved the way for games like Eye of the beholder and Lands of Lore. And even today the Grimrock series keep the fire burning

    Eye of the Beholder was great on SegaCD from what I remember! I had never really played stuff like Dungeon Master, Swords and Serpents, or Wizardry because I thought they looked a bit too hardcore. I suppose RPGs in general might have had too much of a cult status until the MMO stuff (and VII) to really warrant a major recognition like this, but I do feel that even by FF3/VI(SNES), the mainstream was starting to catch on. Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG probably helped the popularity of the genre, too.

    Dungeon Master's 'thing' was the fact that it was first person combined with real time attacks, that set it apart from the other RPG's out there and made it very very tense. I remember reading reviews in old gaming magazines, they read like mini fantasy stories. It was quite intense back in them days

    Elite on the BBC Micro.



    Man, I lost a lot of time to that when I was a kid.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

    Basic as it is, this was probably my favorite Commodore 64 game growing up.

    My friend at school had a C64. Cauldron 2 was one of my favourite games on it.



    Lost in a YouTube 8 bit video games hole. Send help.

    That looks amazing lol! I remember having Goonies and being freaked out by the title screen. Something about the silhouettes and music. I have to really think about C64/128 games, I've forgotten about so many. Dig Dug, Fleet Feet, The Rat, Catastrophes, Dragonfly... I think my cousin had a pirate copy of Side Arms that would be unplayable after the first level. I miss that system and even having to type in the load command. Kind of wish I still had one.

    Guess this video about how graphics worked on the old 8 bit machines we all loved can go here.
