    Day of the Tentacle! That is by far the best game ever. I remember playing it with a girl I had a crush on at her house. I asked her what it was, and we played some, but then she moved and I had to finish it alone later. Sad story? Still, it's awesome and everyone should play it.

    Also, Dune 2. I played that on pirated 3.5" floppies that my aunt made for me. Haha. When Dune 2000 came out, (essentially the same game with better graphics), I played that all the time. It also started the RTS genre (seriously, first game), so yeah, awesome.

    Monkey Island series.

    Finally, the Myst series. I played Riven first with my brother every day over Christmas break. Then I played Myst. Both are good.

    Definitely dating myself here, but I remember playing a text/Star Wars game on the new fangled Apple II in the library during studyhall in high school.

    Carmen San Diego, Oregon Trail, Putt Putt, the Magic School Bus games, Old I spy games. I wasn't on the computer much as a kid so what I played was mostly at school during free-time.

    Pre-95: I was a big fan of the skiing game with the abominable snowman.

    My favorite game was my first PC game: Zork. I can't remember if it was on our Commodore or Apple II, I just remember loving that game.

    i'm assuming your talking about actual computer games and not console games, so all my atari 2600 games are out.

    i guess my favorite childhood game would have to be impossible mission for the commodore 64. that and there was some racing game that let you make your own tracks. that was da bomb!

    other than that i used to play a lot of frogger, asteroids, and space invaders on our trs-80.

    I remember the magic school bus game on the human body. That was awesome. I also played Reader Rabbit games (the early ones, like 2 or 3), Gizmos and Gadgets (still awesome), Carmen San Diego, Treasure Mathstorm, and some Mercer Mayer and Busytown games.

    And . . . how about Hover for Win95?

    The only computer games I played when I was a kid were; Jezz Ball, Chip's Challenge and Pinball.

    I was a Nintendo kid. Super Mario World FTW!

    Then in my late teenager years I started playing Diablo, Diablo II + Expansion and then Morrowind.
