I've been thinking about this a lot recently. There are games we remember playing as children — like Mario and Zelda — and then there are the more obscure games that somehow made it into our collections as children, games we can't quite remember playing, but just sit there at the back of our minds. I want to talk about them.
I have the vaguest memories of a game called The Wild Bunch. Basically a Cowboy simulator that ran on text input. There was a poker mini-game that was super fun, and a gunfight mini-game that I could never, ever work out. I always lost.
The interesting thing about this game is that no-one ever talks about it. I don't know anyone else who actually played it. Therefore my memories haven't been allowed to form around discussions, or endless remakes or re-releases. This game exists only in my memory really. And that's kinda cool.
Does anyone else here have a game like that?
