Oregon Trail.

Fond memories as a child screaming in evil laughter as I layed waste to those helpless slow moving buffalos.

Some shmup that you played as a jet. Don't ask me the name because I can't remember for the life of me. Raptor maybe? If that was even a game ;p

Ohoho, I played a great many floppos in my day. There was one, I recall, where you had to lead a tiger into a river, and then feed it berries until it blocked the water flow and all the plants died. I can't remember the name, but it was really fun. Monkeys would try to steal your berries and you had to cut their heads off with a machete. I assume it was a machete, the graphics were very primitive.

It was probably some Amiga 500 game. I don't remember which one though. Frontier: Elite II? It always amazed me that it only needed one disk.

Though CD-ROMs were the new thing by the time I got into PC gaming (around the Shareware Doom era), I do fondly remember playing Riven, the sequel to Myst. That one was on floppy, though my copy of Myst itself was actually on CD. I remember that Riven had me switching floppies about every 10 minutes (there were maybe 15 different floppies containing the game)


I think you are a BIT (just a bit!) confused. Riven would NEVER fit into 15 floppies. The game came in 5 CDs, man. Even if you remove all the videos and music, the game wouldn't fit into floppies.

Transport Tycoon Deluxe I think...


Amazing game, BTW. ^^

Still one of my favorite games ever. There's a source port, BTW. Not only it enhances the game a LOT, it works on Windows 7/8, Android, Dingoo, toaster, DS... Its called OpenTTD, I think.

Yeah, I've got OpenTTD. The only issue I have with it is that none of the created AI's are the type I'd like to play against and I can't program for the life of me.

Nice question. I had a floppy that had a name written on it "Best of Entertainment" it had games like Tetris, Chess, Pool, and that skiing game I'm sure you all remember. That was the last game I played on a floppy.
