Thank you Jay Lee, I think it was Nes though I might be mistake. It seems like the game closest to my memory is Astyanax. But when I watch the gameplay it doesn't quite seem right.

I remember a knight armed with a sword, trying to rescue his woman from an evil monster. And there being alot of cutscenes similar to Astyanax. It seems like I remember one of the monsters being a large green beast who broke through a wall. In my memory the graphics seemed more like SNES. I think I remember that when I rented it, Bram Stoker's Dracula had just come out to video, and the video store clerck was playing it on the television. So it could have been 1993, not sure when SNES came out.

I also think that I might be mixing Astyanax, Stryder and others together in my memory.

Also on Astyanax, there is a boss who seems familiar. A large grey beast with a pink head.

Ok, im mostly versed in snes. And it came out in '91, but they continued to crank out nes games for about two years or so after. Man there were alot of those fantasy/knight/medieval games out for both??? [Confused]

Yeah, I know. And it seems no matter how many playthroughs I watch on Youtube I can't find anything that quite looks like what I remember.

I assume you've ruled out obvious ones, like Act Raiser?

Someone will need to start a thread about retro games.

We can chat about classics like 1942, Raiden, Elevator Action and more.

Maybe video games can have their own board-like culture and television. I for one would love posting on it [Smile] There's a guy on youtube called 'angry video game nerd' that does these hilarious reviews on all the old nes/snes (plus other systems and even movies). Tons of profanity though.

Looks like Moranis was busy in 89. You know 89 was a really good year for movies. Batman, Lethal Weapon 2 my personal favorite of the series, The Burbs.

2 pages and no mention of Tom Cruise yet? I'll admit he's lost his rocker in the past decade and hasn't made any good movies recently, but in the '80s and '90s he did some great work. Here's a quick sampling of his '80s output to give an idea of how much range he had as an actor:

Taps (1981)
The Outsiders (1983)
Risky Business (1983)
All the Right Moves (1983)
Top Gun (1986)
The Color of Money (1986)
Cocktail (1988)
Rain Man (1988)
Born on the Fourth of July (1989)
Days of Thunder (1990 - counts as an '80s movie in my book since it was filmed in 1989).

If you like Into The Night that's great.

Films are art and are definitely either more or less aesthetically pleasing from person to person, so it's all cool, but I just can't get into the movie. I couldn't even sit all the way through it.

I will say that Michelle Pfeiffer is one of the most gorgeous ladies I have ever seen. Her eyes are magnificent. She was kinda anorexic in Scarface though.

I love That Was Then, This is Now. The ending is a bit weak though.
