I'll start us off with one.....

SpyHunter (played on ZX Spectrum)

Loved this and it spawned an awesome series

Whenever someone mentions old, retro games i always think back to one game first. The one that melted my Speccy's rubber keys and got it speaking Chinese (twice).

Daley Thompson's Decathlon.

I could list a dozen other Speccy games with the rose tinteds on but that one always top of the list!

Timesplitters
Never played the original but I am a big fan of the sequel and third game future perfect, these titles are ones that are close to taking the fps top spot from goldeneye which is my overall personal favourite. they all have a well polished single player experience that would still stand against titles released today.

Lethal Enforcers looks like a cheesy 80s movie been ported to a game (I've only watched some parts as I'm supposed to be working lol) however at the time I didn't think that - funny how our perceptions change!

I just checked this on wikipedia as I recall someone playing it on gamemasters and it was a rental with guns at my local video store :rofl:

This title along with night trap, doom and mortal kombat caused the 90's video game violence controversy, as you say funny how perceptions changes none of these can touch dying light or gta V in this generation of gaming.

Case in point of gta V with VR support:

Want to see GTA 5 as a VR game? Of course you do.

This mod adds hand tracking to Rockstar’s crime sim, and according to the creator, in virtual reality it really emphasizes the level of violence.

“I’m really not sure about this,” he wrote. I feel horrible about making this. You actually feel guilty. My mouth dropped the first time I shot someone in my GTA: V VR setup.”
