Archade type games on a 486? Pinball, some of those top-down car racing games, pac-man, donkey kong, pong, snake, tower of hanoi, a fancy chess-ish game and backgammon for two players... simple games that won't demand a whole afternoon for one game only. Quick games that allow more than one kid a day, you get my point.

there was a pc port of street fighter 2 but it sucked.

If you could source some more 486's / pentiums set up a basic network and run multiplayer doom or C&C - thats the most fun! I mean you gotta be able to source some more machines of that age, they are just thrown away now!

PHOENIX!!!

That's probably one of the best arcade games EVER, and there is a pc version available. :brain:

Also, what about trying:
A Break-Out \ Batty game
A Dizzy game
Q-Bert

I didn't see much wrong with it.

I think I might still have it actually, now that I think of it...

For some reason, you think this machine is going to run MAME or some other console emulator.

Nope. Just good old PC games for it. :P

ops! Sorry LOL

Pinball fantasies is great and never boring (or other pinball games)
You could also choose some calssic games like tetris, pac man, arkanoid or Bubble Bobble! k:

I'd say new games are better (Some of them, hardly all), but the old games have the nostalgic value as well.

Ha ha, I turned my old PC into a cabinet, built an arcade console for it and everything. Basically, it just served to play Metal Slug, a ton of old arcade staples and a really screwily controlled Half Life.



sort of looks like this

Okay, you gots a 486. Well it just so happens that when 486s were the thing I was plaing games on them. What was I playing?
1. Star Control
2. Captian Comic and Captian Comic 2
3. Star Goose
4. Rampage
5. OMF 2059
6. Doom
7.Alien Carnage/Haloween Harry
8. Heck, anything released by Apogee.
9. Ugh
10. Oh yea, Descent. How'd I forget that one?

There's a small list to get you started. Let me know if you need more. Or better yet, feel free to browse the Arcade or Action tabs on Abandonia's main site.
