  • Arcade game from the 90s

    I seem to remember playing a cabinet game in the early 90s (say 93/94ish) that involved driving a vehicle and avoiding objects on the road; However, I believe , if you wanted too you could crash into the objects -- which included a deer that would explode -- with your vehicle if you were feeling really naughty and didn't want to play the game correctly. I also remember an American-style school bus that was one of the vehicles you could use. Anyone any ideas?

    do you remember Duke Nukem 3D (1996)???
    Did you know that before becoming the hottest PC first-person shooter of the 1990s, ol' Duke had a chance to bounce around in 2D, side-to-side action like a Contra soldier in the two platformers Duke Nukem and Duke Nukem II from 1991 and 1993? And in 1996, it all started with Duke Nukem 3D, the best action PC game ever made, no, not in the 1990s, but in the history of PC gaming. Has anyone been able to argue for 20+ years with Duke? No! Now there are so many online games like davinci diamonds slot and hundreds of times better . And following it, 3D Realms continued to catch the hype with the mind-blowing Shadow Warriors.

      Think I found it myself. It was either Crusin' USA or Crusin' World.

          No. Sorry. Looks a fun game though.

            Sure - it was the best PC game ever made, no, not in the 1990s, but in the history of PC gaming.

            It was only rivalled by the mind-blowing Shadow Warriors.

              To be honest, I fell in love with games as a child. It was just in the 90s. From the moment I started playing video games, interest in games only grew. Now I read more about games than I play. Recently I discovered the Japanese game Persona 5. I highly recommend it. I learned about her from a very good article https://gammicks.com/guides/persona-5-ending-guide-how-to-get-all-the-endings/. Everything about the game is superbly described in it.

                  I really want to play old games, but I'm not sure that my current computer configuration will allow them to install and play comfortably. I don't want to buy games that I won't be able to launch later. I recently purchased a Logitech MK550 keyboard with a mouse included. For modern purposes, this is a great purchase, but what about games that are 25-30 years old?

                    There are emulators that let you play these old games and a few forums dedicated to retro gaming with windows 10 solutions for playing them

                          Does anyone remember Crazy Taxi? There are few more enticing coin or card-burning arcade games of the 90s than this chaotic racer from Hitmaker and Sega. As an exhilarating blend of speed-racing and score attack madness, Crazy Taxi tasks players with carting as many paying customers from A to B as possible. The bustling streets of hilly San Fransisco make the experience even more intense and thrilling, producing the feel of an extreme sports game more than a racer.

                          Anyway, I play FFXIV now. Shadowbringers is simply the best MMO extension ever made, period. The new world to discover is amazing, the story is amazing, the soundtrack is amazing and the updated battle system is amazing. We will only complain about one thing: why it is so hard to get FFXIV Gil?

                            I remember Crazy Taxi was one of the first games my friend bought for his Dreamcast.

                            About 2 years ago I went to a retro gaming event where they had the arcade version of it.
