  1. Duke Nukem 3D
  2. Alone in the Dark
  3. Command & Conquer: Red Alert
    (vudiddy gets the right string ("Red Alert") to put into this stupid thing--I had typed "Command and Conquer" and "Command & Conquer" to no avail).
  4. Diablo
  5. Doom II: Hell on Earth
  6. Fallout
  7. Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards
  8. Half-Life
  9. Final Fantasy VII
  10. Defender of the Crown (Cheated)
  11. Day of the Tentacle
  12. Lemmings
  13. Mortal Kombat 3
  14. Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit
  15. Prince of Persia
  16. Rayman
  17. Quake
  18. Sam & Max Hit the Road
  19. The Secret of Monkey Island
  20. Sid Meier's Civilization (xopherg)
  21. Sim City
  22. Sid Meier's Pirates! (xopherg)
  23. Starcraft
  24. Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger
  25. Wolfenstein 3D
  26. Wizard of Wor
  27. Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders (snarkbot--wow, I never would have gotten that one...)
  28. Impossible Mission
  29. The Last Ninja
  30. The Sims 2 (guessed from "Wants" and "Fears")
  31. Elite (xopherg going mad old skool)
  32. Pong
  33. Populous
  34. Boulder Dash
  35. Barbarian
  36. Laser Squad
  37. Grand Theft Auto III
  38. Dyna Blaster (published in the US as Bomberman
  39. Worms
  40. Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness

Edit: Done. The readers of, whose article pointed me to the quiz in the first place, pretty much round out the answers--I've italicized those answers I got from the comments to the article.

[User Picture]#3 looks like Red Alert.

[User Picture]I had a feeling it was a Command and Conquer game, but it wouldn't take any combination of "Command and/& Conquer"

Just typing "Red Alert" worked. Go figure.

[User Picture]#27 looks like Zak McKraken and the Alien Mindbenders

Looks like Dig-Dug? Kind of a blind-ass guess, but it's a good opportunity to let the world know that I once owned two ferrets named Pooka and Fygar. In my defense, I would like to note that the ownership of said ferrets was undertaken in an attempt to reach the inside of a particular girl's pants. Yes, that girl owned a ferret. And, yes, I should never have chased after a girl who owned a ferret. I was young.

Sadly, I did not reach the pants-invasion goal. Pooka and Fygar ultimately found a home at a local ferret breeder, and they lived happily ever after.

[User Picture]Is this some sort of dating rule? Never date a girl who owns a ferret?

capn_ken::2005.02.23.09:46 pm::Re: 34
The ownership of a ferret should be somewhat of a barometer of the girl's overall quality (i.e. it's stupid to own a ferret).
