Remember This?

Can you guess this old game from just one screenshot?

I’ll update this post with the answer at 5pm today if no one has guessed before then. Or if you do guess it before then, feel free to share your memories of a classic game.

Good luck!

    Ultima Underworld

    Ultima Underworld

    Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss - Anyone who doesn't get this loses the right to call themselves a gamer. ;)

    And now a moments silence for Looking Glass who passed away ten years ago. :(

      I sold Ultima Underworld 2 on 5.25" disks a couple of months back. Figured I really didn't have a need for it, so some other collector could enjoy it instead :)

      And speaking of which, isn't the above screenshot from UU2? I seem to recall the sequel had a much larger display area for the game world than the first. Mind you, I haven't played either title for probably 10 years as it is.

        You're correct in that Labyrinth of Worlds had a larger display area than Stygian Abyss but that screenshot is definitely the first game in the franchise. Two ways to recognise this - 1) the second game's interface was a grey colour as opposed to the first's brown and 2) the sequel expanded the view window by removing the row of icons to the left of the screen that were present in Stygian Abyss.

        :P

          So I found out after posting that comment. Had a quick look to refresh my memory (don't have the dosbox version of either game on my Macbook at the moment). Might have to revisit it soon though!

          (side note - I played Ultima VIII on the weekend for the first time in years. time hasn't been kind)

      Real gamers didn't own DOS PCs in 1992, it wasn't until 93 that DOS became an essential platform.

    This is gotta be Halo Reach.

      My my, that guess was something of a reach.

      No has to be Gears of War 3. That has to be an 8 bit Locust! :P

    Btw, there'll be a theme to this week's Remember This? so see if you can spot it...
