    Default Forgot the name of a game? Post here.

    So forgot the name of that game you played 10 years ago? Maybe you played something at your friends or even a demo you've forgotten. Post as much as you can remember and we'll all help each other out!!!

    Please remember to add an Unsolved at the bottom of your post and edit to add Solved if answered correctly. (So people don't keep guessing )

    I have one haha.

    I am sure this game was on the SNES. It is a 2D GAME.
    So the game is like this car chasing game, you drive the car and you need to ram into the enemy's car and destroy it. If this info isn't enough, the game shows a car mirror where it shows your character's face when the car crashes and stuff. Think there was dialog aswell. I played this game around about 8-9 years ago.
    Extra: It is a First Person driving game, where you look outside the car window and drive.

    SOLVED

    So, there was this game, it was for SNES or NES, most prodably SNES.

    It was a Monster Truck racing game, I think it had only rally tracks, open environment races (not that it had free roam, just that it wasn't in stadiums).

    I just remember of one track, that was in La Paz, and it is just a frozen image in my memory. This image of the track in my mind is at sunset, and I think it had day/night cycles (big thing, many old 2D racing games had that).

    That's everything I can say.

    Solved? Unsolved? (There is an answer, saying it is Super Off Road - The Baja, but I'm almost sure it was with real monster trucks, not pickup trucks. I might be wrong, though, as I think I was very young).

    Okay, maybe you guys can crack this one. I've been dying to play it again for years.

    This is a Japanese PSX game. You navigate through a maze with some pencil-like thing and when you touch the walls, it explodes and (I think) you have to start over. I'm pretty sure I played this game off of a demo disc, if that helps.

    I know that's not a lot to go on. That's all I remember.

    Ahh, Miku! She's so AWESOME!!

    That's not quite it. Although it is displayed the same way as the game I mentioned. But thanks for showing me that video. I think I'm gonna start playing that game.

    i have no idea which game it is then, sorry. kuru kuru kururin is definetly worth playing if you like skill games.

    edit: i also remembered a game i saw a couple of months ago in a video game store but the name escapes me. it was for either gamecube or ps2 and it had a very anime-ish art direction, another thing i remember for sure is that the cover mentioned something about battles with a huge amount of enemies on screen (probably like the warriors games from koei). anyone know which game it could be? thanks

    Well, i registered so i could ask about this and im stoked to see a section specifically for asking!

    All i remember is that it was on the Game boy, played like a looser shadowgate and was centered around alchemy. There were pots or cauldrons or alchemic circles or whatever youd come across every now and then and youd drop in items youd found to create new ones. Occasional monster encounters and the like. I used to loooove it as a kid and i just cant for the life of me remember the name of it. Much obliged.

    I was never very good at coming up with original sigs.

    So years ago in my younger days I played a game on the GBA I'm not sure if that was the only platform it's just the one I remembered...
    This game had a title involving the word sol or solstice or some such variation.... it's kinda like a wanna-be Zelda game only "Link" or whatever you wanna call your character is tall instead of being a demented gnome shooting magical beams out of his sword... it starts off rather like link to the past your mother.. (I think) sends you out in the rain on some errand and makes sure you take your tunic which is.... you guessed it, GREEN! Hence the wanna-be zelda... I think she sends you down into the village to talk to someone about something (real descriptive I know). Thats about all I really remember I really really wanna play it again I just don't remember the name =/
    Please help (sorry if this post is too long )

    FAIL: solved. by me. GOLDEN SUN.

    So the game im looking for is on psx its a horror game its turn based with a battle system kind of similar to fftactics with a grid move and attack system . . . started in a mansion (i think) and i remember the weapons always being a pain because they broke and you couldnt repair them (to my knowledge). there were 3 characters you controlled one female that was the main girl and 2 guys. i remember the storyline being very grim and very violent i loved it and wanted to play it again

    solved game was koudelka thanks to colamisu
