Damn, I used to be a total nut for nes/snes RPGs:
-Chronotrigger, Seiken Desentsu II-III, Final Fantasy I-VI, chrysalis, Terranigma, Bahamut Lagoon, etc...

And for PC:
-Loved Civilization I/II/III (II was the best). That was some serious dope ;) Also have some good memories with Comander Keen, and the originical Command and Conquer (the music was amazing).

And I remember a few really old games, but they are too distant in the past (like Oregon Trail, Monkey Island, Indiana Jones, etc...).

and prince of persia.
Too many. Well, first about games VS scene, lately my small brother got divorced with his girlfriend, so he left her home and came back in the family. This meaned that our room is a mess and he plugged his computer near mine, place is too short. At the same day, I made the crucial mistake to buy a Radeon 9600 pro. And that's because everyday I wake up, everyday I return back from university, I found my big brother playing all new games he have installed in my HD. Oneday, I found both my brothers and a friend with his laptop, networked and playing Serious Sam. IT WAS LIKE A FUCKIN NETCAFE!!! During the first days, I decided to try a lot of games with my new gfx card (after the demos and 3dmarks), I was hooked with UT2004 and Doom3, willing to start Halflife2 too, regardless the motion sickness. My CPC projects have freezed, even my little PC coding experiments with C and SDL just for fun. I am too lazy, and even if I get inspired to start coding again, I can't focus with my brother playing FIFA 2005 in the same table ;P

Then I started playing with DosBox. Technological comparisons of 10+ years in the desk, like my brother playing Need for Speed Underground 2 near me playing Lotus 3. Then, we were both obsessed with RPGs. 2 DosBoxes, Eye of the Beholder 3 VS Lands of Lore and then VS EOB 1 which I finished once again. Unfortunatelly, EOB2 will get me a disk error under DosBox if I try to save my game. Fortunatelly, I can return back to coding..

But yesterday, I downloaded Top100 DOOM WADs and got inspired on building a WAD map again (This time for Doom2). I have to download a new windows editor though. Deu was good for it's time but annoying when I want to allign wall textures or because of some bugs and other reasons. There must be better editors out there. And I have to download Zdoom or Boom for many of the modern WADs (I prefer older WADs which made nasty tricks and supplied beautifull architectures, without changing Doom.exe at all).

I wanted to port some stuff in Freebasic and I also want to finish 1 or 2 planned projects on CPC (which are still small with almost no code), one is almost at 70% but my projects freezed. And what's more crazy is that I got a CPC-Booster+ card from Antitec. If I had at that time all my desk free, I would bring my CPC back from my Altair, connect it to the PC with the Booster and start crossdeveloping and transfering binary code to the CPC. I'd like to try that but now there is no space in the desk :(

That's all about games, life and creativity..
