We have all played video games on our PC’s (Personal computer, not picture courtesy, duh!.) It was the era of computers and video games, which is now replaced by laptops and mobile phones. Be it a girl or a boy, we cannot deny on playing atleast one of these computer games.
1. Road RashThis motorcycle racing video game, developed by Electronic Arts, is one of the most popular games of our childhood. The game was about motorcyclists indulging in illegal street races. In recent news, Road rash is back, with a new name- Road Redemption. The real challenge is whether it can carry the legacy of road rash well or just prove as a bane!?
2. Pac-ManReleased in 1980, by Nando, this video game series was a must in every computer. One of the most popular maze games of the time. It was available in many versions like Pac- attack, Pac-in-time, and so on. It was introduced in PlayStation as well, with the name Pac Man World.

3. Need For SpeedAnother racing game franchise initiated by the Electronic Arts, and developed by the Ghost Games, Need For Speed was one of the popular car racing games back then. The popularity escalated so much that it was also turned into a film along with introduced as Hot Wheels Toys. It allows multiplayers in the game, by the split screen feature.
4. Age of EmpiresA real-time strategy game about history, Age of Empires, developed by Ensemble Studios was a must have in every nerd and history lover’s computer.

The animated scenes and the monuments made it even more appealing.

6. Grand Theft AutoIs there any instance where we talk about computer games from our childhood and do not talk about GTA? I guess not!
