That great gaming decade

Just dropped in to share a few screenshots, thoughts and write-throughs dedicated to the Golden Age of computer gaming. Expect quests, third-person adventure and probably some FPS too.

Games that changed my life [1/10]: Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars (1996)

"As I picked myself up, all I could hear was the ceaseless drone of traffic. Life went on around me, but the explosion was to change my life forever."

This game is absolutely perfect. I prefer the sequel now, but how clevel, funny, witty and just plain lovely the first Broken Sword is!

Alone in the Dark,” it was released on  the 3DO and PC. I believe Alone in the Dark was the start of the survival horror genre for games like, “Resident Evil,” and, “Silent Hill.” I’m a sucker for horror games and Alone in the Dark was one of the horror series I loved playing. The main character of the Alone in the Dark series is Edward Carnby, a detective who investigates the supernatural or a supernatural private eye. He’s always getting himself into tons of trouble with his investigations.

Basically in this Alone in the Dark, Edward Carnby and Emily Hartwood hear about the house, Derceto, in their own ways. So, they decide to check out the house and investigate what is going on. In the end it’s concluded that the cause for the strange things happening in the house is an evil tree under the house, Pregzt. 

The gameplay starts off with getting the letter from the owner of the house than you choose to play as Emily Hartwood or Edward Carnby (I find that it’s much more difficult playing as Emily Hartwood than using Edward Carnby because of the way she fights) Well,you make your way up to the attic of the house where you start blocking out creatures and grabbing items. As you play you gain more knowledge of the house and clues to unlock stuff or defeat creatures.

Finally got around to playing it again.

Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master (Sega Genesis, 1993)
Sadly, had to leave this one at original size to keep it under 1mb.

I haven’t played a ninja game in years.

But Pearl is actually really witty, and her relationship with her husband, Dwayne, is iconic?!
