I have a strange love for the interactive fiction style adventure games of the 80's, stuff like Mosaic's Adrian Mole games and Yes Prime Minister. It's mainly just reading a lot of text, then choosing one of 3 or 4 actions from a list of options, which you never see acted out, and your ratings go up or down accordingly, but you never seem to actually understand why, or what the point of it all is. But it's weirdly compelling.

Is this stuff like Poker Ladies or games nobody else liked?

For me it's
Zelda Wand of Gamelon everybody knocks it but I really like it
Dragons Lair, super Don Quoxite and all the other Laser disc I still think there brilliant bought the games in Poundland, bought Dragons Lair etc on the I Phone, bought it on the GBA still play them
Final Fight 3 my friend thinks if he had a personal hell he'd be forced to play Final Fight 3 all day but I like it
Ninja C64 just brilliant but got a slated in the mags

Night trap on the mega cd loved it when it was first out and would love to play it still now.

Fifa I know millions play it so its not really a guilty pleasure.Not much love for it on here though.

This one?

I agree about the digitalised games. First seeing Pit Fighter was one of "those" moments.

And NBA Jam! Although that isn't a guilt pleasure by any stretch.

And I have to say I'm chuffed with all the Pitfighter love on this thread. Love that game. First game I ever bought for my Megadrive.

Speaking of Pitfighter 'Guardians of the Hood' a scrolling beat em up with digitised graphics in which you can attack people by picking up tramps and throwing them at thugs. Seems to get a slating in the mag but I like it

I really tried to like this but I couldn't. I like the weirdness of it all but by the time you get to the stage with the Chinese theme/enemies, it gets too hard to beat all the enemies before the timer runs out.

Personal Nightmare. One of the first real-time adventures with semi-digitised graphics, I think the game is genius but it gets ripped to shreds because of its difficulty level. And I concur, I utterly abhor its difficulty but I just love the atmosphere, and mystery element, I think that other than the fact that its virtually impossible to complete without a walkthrough, it's genius!

The ST and Amiga versions of The Blues Brothers. I believe most people regard these as average platformers at best but i think they're great.

Also Rick Dangerous. It may be an unfairly difficult memory test with no regard for even half accurate collision detection or the basic principles of physics but I just don't care... I like it, I like it a lot.

Sonic R. Yes, the gameplay is sort of sluggish and mediocre at best while the soundtrack is, well, the epitome of 90's cheese, but I could dig it. I have owned and played both the PC and Sega Saturn versions in the past.
