So with the announcement that some Bullfrog IPs might be making a comeback who else used to love them?

I spent so much time on Theme Hospital and Park it's not even funny.

And Magic Carpet was fun too.

I only ever played Syndicate.

Well, Magic Carpet, too, I guess. Though, I wouldn't call it playing. I just flew around, exploring. Never actually did anything.

Magic Carpet was one of the first PC games I ever had and I just flew around too. I loved Theme Hospital as well.

I had a PC chock full of the Epic Megagames and Apogee shareware titles years before Magic Carpet came out, not to mention id's games, but that was the first time I'd really owned a 3D game. That, Quake, Lemmings 3D and Destruction Derby, all on my PC around the same time.

Well, I guess I'm forgetting Alone in the Dark. I had that a few years before then. But it was fugly.

It was a while before I had a computer, let alone one that could run any games. And I only had Magic Carpet because it came with the computer

My first was either Wolfenstein 3D, Jill of the Jungle or Commander Keen. I don't really remember which of the three we got first, but I do remember a monochrome screen and PC speaker bloops whenever you'd shoot someone or try to open a secret door in a wall in Wolfenstein.

Oh my God Jill of the Jungle.

I loved that game. That and Zool were all I did on the PC back in the day.

Dungeon keeper and Hospital were amazingly addictive.

If they're going to make a return, I hope we get a Dungeon keeper remake.

I tried playing Syndicate again recently. The controls felt kinda clunky and non-intuitive, though I'm not sure whether to label this as "Haven't played in a long time and therefore forgot" or "The controls in this game were really, really terrible."
