Were you an Oregon Trail school or a Lemmings school?
Oregon Trail 1 & 2. Played the crap outta those games. Even today still love them.
Absolutely! Dying of cholera has never been so much fun! I'd add the Carmen Sandiago games.
*cough* Carmen Sandiego
I have Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, but the school didn't :(
I didn't even know there was a sequel. I should look that up.
If you buy for example "The Learning Company - Oregon Trail 5th Edition" it actually is "Oregon Trail 2" from 1995, but they don't even call it that. Basically look up screenshots from Oregon Trail 2 and compare to more recent editions of the game and you will see.
You probably remember the 84 Olympics.
I do indeed.
Turbo Math Facts "oh no, OH NO, OH NOOOOOOO!"
All I remember on those was Tody. Type a command and watch him do it lol
That sounds awfully similar to a game on the BBC Micro called "Podd." There were simple commands such as "walk" and "jump", but most kids just wanted to type in "pop." In which case, Pod would swell and swell and literally explode into a shower of pixels.
I liked Odell Lake, Lemonade Stand, Number/Word Muchers, Oregon Trail. I guess they were all pretty good, considering the tech for the time.
Pitfall then Solitaire. Kind of an odd duo.
Castle of Wolfenstien. Played everyday before the first bell rang. Mech Warrior was also a good one.
Playing Lemonade Stand, and another I think that was part of a disk called An Introduction to the Apple //c or something close to that. (had Apple //c's in my school back in the 80's) It had a rabbit maze game where you had to navigate the rabbit in the maze to get it's carrot :D
We had KING'S QUEST 1,2 and 3. We convinced the teacher to let us have them on because you type English Text into it haha.
Kings quest 3 was great but hard the suspense of not knowing where the evil magician is was gold and that freaking evil mountain
Primary School it was Zombini, Middle school it was Unreal Tournament 2004 and in High School one of our teachers somehow organised a Halo 3 session with some of the students allowed to bring their own console to school. Man those were some great times.
Roller Coaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon. Yeah there was games like Oregon Trail and Civilization, but I never play those games anywhere near as much as Roller Coaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon. I wish they still made those games today, yes technically they do, but are so watered down, they just aren't the same. Zoo Tycoon for example doesn't even let you control anything in the game. It is just a glorified pet simulator, no ground management or how the guests react to what is going on. Back to the main subject there was a lot of Edutainment games from the 90s, be it Reader Rabbit, Clue Finders, Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, Math Blaster and of course Oregon Trail. That with how gaming is more popular than ever, I'm surprised there hasn't been a new game in any of these series, since the 90s.
Planet Coaster and Planet Zoo have so much content and freedom to do what you like with them. They're anything but watered down. You should really check them out
All the arcade games I brought from home on and ran on MAME and the Sega Genesis/Megadrive games I ran on the Gens emulators which were burned to cds. Other than that, Pinball, I guess
Oregon Trail. For some reason it left so much of an impact that I couldn't resist investing in one of those dorky Oregon Trail handhelds. For the record, I pretty much never buy that sort of thing as I'm perfectly content with getting my retro games in large compilations that I can play on my system of choice. Sadly, Oregon Trail doesn't have a ton of ports.
They had Age of Empires 2 on all my school computers and it was amazing!
Hunchback and Chucky egg
Alley cat, Carmen sandiego , golden axe, kings quest 3, battle chess, midnight rescue, wolfenstein, commander keen. I think we had it good and the teachers of which I'm one today didn't have clue :)
My 6th grade teacher had Leisure Suit Larry in his desk/computer. Otherwise Oregon Trail.
Used to play classic Prince of Persia mostly on my computer class... that shit was warm Also Wolfenstein from time to time
Super Munchers was awesome
All I remember was Number Munchers, Prince of Persia, Sim Tower, Star Trek. Got in shit for playing DOOM in school that's all I remember.
I remember MoonPatrol and some car racing game where you got good points for passing pedestrians and bad points for running them over. I think most were playing Track and Field but I didn't like it. Good ol' Commodore 64.
Oregon Trail in elementary school, Roller Coaster Tycoon in middle school, then finally Newgrounds in high school.
