I can remember when Terminal Velocity was cutting edge.  This game places you in a flying space ship with 3D worlds to explore and destroy.  This was the first game I ever played which gave you expansive 3D out doors areas to explore.  I can also remember needing to turn off all of the options in order to make it run well on my computer - so I was quite amused to see it run perfectly under Virtual PC with all of the options turned up high:

This was the first 3D game to ever give me motion sickness - but having gone back and played it again - I suspect that this is because its 3D engine is a bit off and looks like it has a 'fish-eye' effect applied to it.  Terminal Velocity is still an addictive game - and you can download it from here: http://www.3drealms.com/downloads.html

Cheers,

  • nice one!
    TerminalVel was also my first game with a real feeling of speed and motion :D

    But I got nearly similar fellings with the stone-old "Afterburner" which runs on amiga!(?)
