What game did you play as a kid that you couldn't find until years of searching?

Shadowrun scared me as a kid and I only remembered the cover. Took me 20 years but I finally found it

Sopwith. Searching for "DOS biplane game" didn't exactly give me the results I was looking for.

Super Smash Brothers strangely enough.

I played it at a relative's house when i was very young

Being a small kid, i forgot the game's name. All I could remember was Yoshi fighting Kirby and Mario.

I also had next-to no internet access for awhile, so I couldn't look it up.

I had completely forgotten the game until I was looking for Wii games many years later and found Brawl, then i remembered the game

speaking of which, there's another game I played there that I'm not even sure exists, as I've never been able to find it.

It was a weird game where I think 2 demons were fighting in hell, there was definitely fire in the background, and it may have been a fighting game. It was on n64, but I don't remember much

There are a ton of them I either owned or rented as a little kid but didn't know the names of at the time, like Wrath of the Black Manta and Out to Lunch. I can't think of any right now that I spent much time looking for, though.

It was some BASIC language text adventures you had to type in and save to disk before playing. Well I guess you didn't have to save it, but after typing all that it would suck to do it a second time.

Also floppy drives were expensive, and some people had to make do with tapes. Well that was still better than having to type the game in every time you wanted to play it. The tapes just took a lot longer to save or load data.

>type the game in every time you wanted to play it

Were there actually people who did this? That sounds like a massive pain in the ass.

That was fine for small games, like some of the ones in these books. They had some simple ones that took up a page or less.

Mitsume Ga Tooru. A NES game that I unfortunately played with a title of "Pocket Monster Red".

Sadly I still have two games I have not found to this day:

1) from 8bit comp era, zx or near related - flying warplane in 2D, not a scroller! was quite amazing, but 5.25" floppy was damaged

2) PS1 or Sega: strategy game - some prehistoric dudes mining, collecting wood and ores, building houses, farms, etc, but not Civ?

On the Genesis there were Tyrants: Fight Through Time and Power Monger, but I'm not sure how much relation those bear to what you're talking about.

I know the PlayStation also got a port of Populous: The Beginning which is similar in some ways but doesn't have farms or mining.

Winter Challenge (1991). I vividly remembered the bobsleigh game but it internet wasn't mainstream back then. Sometimes I'd remember the game but was too busy with some other thing to look it up. And then my googling skills stopped being subpar and I found it. Good times.

It may have been Killer Instinct Gold or one of the Mortal Kombat games

I remember some Dungeon Crawler like Might and Magic on the PC, only thing I really remember was that there was a guy with Red hair and a red eye and was some sort of fire sorcerer… When you were choosing characters and got to him, he said: "Does my face frighten you?" it was voiced.

Sounds vaguely like Anvil of Dawn, but I don't remember it having a redhead PC.
