While I recognize all of those... the only one that I can actually name is Populous. That was a cool ass game

aaahh.. .I should know these...

The third from the top was one of the all time great shoot'em-ups on the Amiga.
If I remember correctly Bomb the Bass did the soundtrack, but I cant remember the name of game.

#4 hmm could it be an intro-scene to Raid over Moscow?
#5 is populous all right.
#6 looks if it could be a saxxon/uridium-clone of some sort, but my mind is blank

Cooooo I remember most of them.

2. Is Nebulus (or Nebulus 2) -it actually has the name on the screenshot

3. Is Xenon (or Xenon II) and the music was great - as was the game. Damn now I've another thing to look up (lucky I have the Amiga emulator set up so I can play Populous 2 which is picture 5).

[edit: I'll go with Xenon 2 - see:
http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node=Xenon%20II ]

[edit2: I'm not sure about the legality of this but here is the tune from the game: http://jbg.swznet.de/amiga/mp3/xenon2.mp3

and the original: http://jbg.swznet.de/amiga/mp3/megablast.mp3 ]

Does anyone here remember Tyrian? Damn, that game rocked. Once of my very first computer games. Holds a lot of fond memories of destroying fleets of weird things and collecting coins while flying a spaceship that shoots lasers and hot dog guns.

InI: "that horrible thing" looks like a remake of Scorched Earth. I don't know why classicgaming people gave that subtitle.

In fact the "Mother of All Games" is Space War ( see alos this ). It's been done between 1960 and 1962 by an MIT student and some hackers. Nolan Bushnell - Atari's founder - did his own version called Computer Space on a cheaper computer in 1971. Unfortunately it didn't have the same success as PONG. As stated in the page, you can see a Computer Space cabinet in JAWS ( 1975 )

PONG is kown as the first video-game, because it's the first one that really meet an audience.
Space War was only working in computer labs in the sixties so nobody knows it. And Computer Space was apparently too tricky for the public at the time.

[edit] Another link about Video Games History. BTW I can't find the release date of Scorched Earth [/edit]
[edit2]You'll find some screenshots and story about video-games appearance in movies, here. Wow, the SpaceWar cabinet is so ... gorgeous.[/edit2]
