Geek Culture should have geeky games! Or Geeky games you can download! Like for example a game might be called something like the pop-up busters, or 001 James Geek, or The Lord of The Root! Just a suggestion!

Or old BBS games! Like LORD and BRE!

Just a thought. [Big Grin]

There is some ancient stuff over on Geek Files,

including the Shockwave Bill Gates Head Hockey
http://www.geekculture.com/geekfiles/headhockey/headhockey.html

but it seems to run very slow in Safari though. [Frown] [Confused]

Don't forget the high quality screen savers [Big Grin] . Alas, it doesn't work in Firefox without the plugin for Director right now, and I don't feel like bothering at the moment. Still amusing and enjoyable [Smile] .

Not entirely a bad thing, considering one of the benefits of using Firefox is it doesn't come bundled with every plugin ever made.

Coincidentally, there's an article on slashdot right now that talks about installing plugins in mozilla and firefox.

They currently support most of the fun plugins you would need.. shockwave, pdf, etc.

You can make them properly run an external video program too if you like...

Let me hold my tongue and just state that I fully understand the issues at hand, I just can't be bothered right now, and am not sure if I really want the full boat installed.

I know what you are saying, dman; I'm really stating that I see Firefox's lack of plugins as an advantage over the bloated netscape.

I'm sure if the coders among us submitted a GC-based game, Snaggy would upload it here. [Smile] Anyone for the star studded 'Flame the Troll'? Featuring such big names as Audrey, and Satan!

I recall a few months ago there was a bandwidth crisis of some sort here at GC. I don't know if GC can handle the load of adding games to the list of things downloaded, but that's a issue for snaggy and nirto to decide.

/me chants, Teh-tris, teh-tris, teh-tris.....

Damn, I love that game. I used to stay up all hours of the night (and morning [Wink] ) trying to beat my last high score or the high score of my brother.

(My apologies if the pointless post factor is high as I believe it is...just hard to miss an opportunity to express my love for the best game ever invented [Wink] )

I had the game boy color version of Tetris--for some reason I found it much easier on the Game boy color than on any other console. My record: <500,000 points and 356 lines. I'm still not sure how I managed to do that...My record on the old pea-green game boy was only 104 lines.

But if you want internet games, all you need is www.addictinggames.com [Big Grin]

Tetris for the NES was definitely a killer on the eyes, especially after 6 hours of play.

I just recently purchased an NES, with Tetris, and all kinds of other games.. including some nice rarities.. Final Fantasy 1, Tetris, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Adventures of Zelda, River City Ransom, etc.

Great games, I don't care what anyone says. [Wink]

But man did they bring back memories.

Not to be a stickler, but i believe you mean The Legend of Zelda. You need to get marble madness and fester's quest, among others.

Well he might of meant The Legend of Zelda: The Adventures of Link, thats something that always got me, the game should be named The Legend of Link or just Link, because he is the main character.

Yes, you're right.

The Adventures of LInk is a different game, the golden cartridge. I originally purchased that one on eBay, but the buyer said it was stolen or something like that. meh.

I used to have Fester's Quest years ago.. that was an interesting game.. I might get it back, since in the past, I couldn't make any damned sense of it.

As for Marble Madness, I forgot that game existed, but now I just *have* to have it.

As a kid in the 1970s we used to play a version of RISK on a big PDP mainframes. (Being a math prof's daughter had perks.) I don't remember the real name of the game. You were going to conquer the world. Any ideas of the name??

It was called empire. My roomates in college were big fans of it. What school was it? We PDP-10 fans are insatiably curious about the origins and history of each installation.

About a zillion years ago, in 1978, my friend and I wrote a game in basic, which ran on the PDP-10 our school had a dial-up connection to. The bizarre thing is, about a year ago, I found it on a web site. There is was, my original code, with proper attribution. I didn't even have a copy. Somehow it had gotton preserved by the legions of PDP-10 fanatics.

It has spawned MANY clones, and I *think* that this *might* be the original version? (Mac OS Classic)
