I had this problem for along time: there was a SNES titlethat I remember playing but only until just now found out the title of it (emulator here I come!). I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem?

This is the game I was trying to think of:

Perhaps Neo users could help you remember the title of your game if yo can describe it :)

Really? No one? I thought this was a pretty common thing. Perhaps it is just me who is forgetful :p

Come to think of it, there was this tile based dungeon crawler type RPG although you did wonder on the surface plenty. The things that I vaguely remember is that the name had Scroll/s or Book in the title, possibly numbered or part of a series. It ran on DOS or Windows 98 and what I played was most likely a demo. I also remember killing giant ants and/or giant spiders (ed: and wizards and wolves). Ed2: Looked at some Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder and they of the same style.

Of the games that I lost and rediscovered later, these come to mind: Conquest of the New World, Lords of Magic, Nox, Silver and Neophyte (found by remembering the name Koplio, too bad it was never finished). And the one that I found completely by chance is Another World. I was reading GOG's announcement for the 2011 Screenshot Scavenger Hunt, which had a screenshot of this games unique visual style as and example.

No, there was an NES game where you played as a family (and maybe their dog?) and you went down into a dungeon, and each family member had different abilities. It was a Metroid esque game, and for the longest time I could remember what the Hell it was called, mostly because it has the totally unrelated name "Legacy of the Wizard":

I'm embarrassed to admit that I played Contra as a kid on a NES, but only recently found out the title because the game I played was called Gryzor or Probotector or something else in the Oceania region.

I can never remember a commadoor 64 game, where you are a space man , you crash and you need to find oxygen from the other lander around the map. he shoots a spinning disk or boomerang by pressing the space button,

there is green weeds and floating squares that kill you.

I will love it if anyone remembers the game.

There is one game I have been looking for years. See if anyone can help.

It was on the amiga
it was all black and white
you were a prisoner in a jail. you had to time the escape from the cell as this robot flying thing would move only passed the cell at a set time and you then could move in to a room that was like a wine celler.

Thats all I can remember.

There was a top down shooter for NES which involved eyeballs and other weird elements to kill - played at a friends house about 20 years ago - could never remember the name and he certainly doesnt remember at this point...

Yes there was a NES action game w/ rpg elements.
No "saves" you had to write down / enter code.

Cross between space battle (side scrolling but vertical) and exploring massive space ship (action).
It had venders in the ship I think you could purchase upgrades.
