Games I Don't Remember

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Mon Jul 17, 2017 12:55 pm

Icewind Dale 2. I was seriously surprised to read that there was a sequel. I played the first one. Meditated on it. Couldn't get enough of it. I ... must own the sequel, right? There's 500 CDs downstairs, so I will check and put an end to this, but I could not say anything about it.

Denizens, what games existed that you played that you don't remember?

Galaxian - I wrote an entire end of term paper on it and even scored free shots from getting a high score, but I can't remember anything about the actual game itself.

Games I Don't Remember
Sadly, I'd put almost every text adventure I played in the 1980s in this category. Infocom, Mindscape... I know I played them all back in the day, or at least tried do, but I can't seem to remember a single detail from any of them.

Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3. They blur together. I remember buying a cheat code book at Blockbuster. I had more fun with the games after I put on god mode but certainly don't remember beating the end bosses or anything before that.

Isn't this more like "game I didn't know existed?"

I feel that this is the correct interpretation of the topic until Robb is able to get back to us with confirmation that he has played Icewind Dale 2.

I didn't know that TES:Redguard existed until recently. I played the heck out of every game in the franchise since Daggerfall launched, I played a good bit of Arena, and I knew about Battlespire, but I didn't realize that Redguard was a game.

Dark Savior for Sega Saturn.

I rented it and I THINK nearly beat it right after wisdom tooth removal surgery. Lots of meprozine (heavy duty painkiller) involved.

I mean... I vaguely remember Zork and a few of the others... but when I look down the complete list of Infocom games, one part of my says I must have tried them all while another part can't even remember the basic plot.

To be fair, I only remember Dark Savior because if you stuck the CD in a music player, it'd read off fables from the game to you.

there was no plot, just take out your paper and pen and draw the map so you can finish it already.

Embarassingly I had forgotten when I named our current beloved old cancerous dog[0] "Argus" that he had been the antagonist in _Mentula Macanus: Apocolocyntosis_.

Bruce

[0] At the time he wasn't cancerous, was middle-aged, and came to us from the shelter named "Duke."

D.W. Bradley's Wizards and Warriors is a game I never knew existed until I saw it come up for sale on gog.com a couple weeks ago. I purchased it just out of respect for the man himself, haven't played it yet but it looks like a lot of fun.

Well that’s confusing because the only wizards and warriors I know of was on NES but vaguely recall this other thing that called itself the same thing. It’s a lot more recent?

Also, I forgot about this topic and would like to add Dragon Age II. Basically all I remember is stabbing people in fmv decisions that pissed me off without fearing the results and saying “have at you!” when initiating combat. Everything else is a blur.

I played Polybus a few times until they suddenly removed them just weeks after they were installed.

Yes, it came out in 2000. Bradley left Sir-Tech after Wizardry 7 and founded Heuristic Park with Wizards and Warriors being his most successful project. A bunch of dumb shits on gog complained about some problems but I ignored them because I don't have time to listen to casuals who can't appreciate this:
