Back in the day, I can't remember if my first computer was the Atari 800XL or the Commodore 64. Either way, the Commodore 64 just dominated that time period I probably had like 1500 games back then before jumping up to a PC in 1990. I broke the PC games up into two sections for one reason. It seems as Windows “improved” over the years, the older games were no longer compatible. Plus, it would be difficult to limit a list to ten games when the PC spans over 21 years of gaming.

I just wanted to point out that Typhoon 2001 is a freeware version of Tempest 2000 that just surpasses the original in so many ways. If you played Tempest, you really need to track this game down!!!
