Anyone Remember The Original Sim City?

Okay, think back before Windows ME, before the Internet, back to 1989, when the cars were fast, the music horrible, and SimCity is released for the SNES...

Man, that's an awesome game! Who remembers it, and how good (or bad) did you do? Who still has it *shyly raises hand* :P

The SNES version was pretty cool, I remember sitting downa dn playing that for hours. I even got the origonal computer version...that one wasn;t quite as fun without Mr. Sim. I never managed to make it to a Megalopolis, I hit Metropolis and could never grow any bigger....ah memories :D

Sim City originally came out as a DOS-based program, didn't it? I played that A LOT. It ruled.

It's flashback week, apparently, as yesterday I went digging for Scorched Earth, and found the originals AND a new 3-D version which is amazing, and pretty true to the original.

Now I'm going to have to go find the original Civilization. That was a classic.

Meh. You kids and your new fangled graphics... *waves cane* :cursing:

Granted, I never bothered to play any of the versions after the original. The original wasn't flashy, certainly not by today's standards, but it was genius.

it certinaly was enjoyable. I got 2000, but never botehred after that. THeres just that vintage charm about Sim City 1. It's like me and NHL95, the new 3D editions are cool and all, but nothing will compare to my dynasty on NHL95, just like no 3D city will ever compare to my 2D Central City :D

is the new scorched earth any good? the original was sweet. that was my first taste of "online gaming". turn based online... during the old days of text only BBS, 14.4kps modem speeds, and DOS based IBM clones (pre-Winders for the young'ns).

Sweet!

I have the original Civilization! It's great. It came packed with a similar game that I actually like a lot more, Colonization. You're one of 4 nations (England, Spain, France, The Netherlands) and you colonize the new world. Indian affairs, European affairs, revolutions, trade, it's great. I'm going to play it as soon as I get off here. Ignore the DOS graphics, original Civ and Colonization are GREAT games!

Best computer game ever: Civilization 2, Multiplayer

I have the original one for Mac along with SimAnt and SimLife. Unfortunatley, I don't have a floppy drive anymore, or the ability to run my computer in 16 colors, or 250, or whatever it wants.

I just purchased the game for my little brother (4 year old) for Christmas for the SNES, and it's pretty good.

I have that now for snes, although i don't play it much now that I have a ps2. But I still play sometimes.

The music and the crazy hair guy is the best :lol:. Am I the only one who builds up there city and when you get bored unleash a bunch of disasters, especially the godzilla attack?

What a lot of earlier games lacked in graphics, they made up for in character (not that there aren't some cool games out now with character and great graphics).

Two old favorites of mine--World Class Leader Board and Earl Weaver Baseball.
