PC game
had an intro set in a cgi kitchen?
segued off into a  breakout clone featuring zany cartoon bugs?
most likely was a demo packaged with something else, maybe a sierra game, or was a pack-in with windows 95/98/or ME

Banzai bug perhaps?

PC game
Played the game as a child sometime between 93 and 2000
thought the game was called Pencilvania
I think the game had a character called Rotten Wrench
it had an overworld view where you could select a place/activity to visit
may or may not have referenced Shel Silversteins Peanut Butter Sandwitch poem.

Looking it up online brought up the game Pantsylvania, could this be it?

I'm thinking of an arcade game from the mid 90s which featured medieval warriors and dog men (think moblins) who would get progressively more raw the more you slashed them... I remember them still fighting despite having heads that were almost completely covered over in blood, even the eyes. Does anyone remember this game?

Uh, better late than never? I'm pretty sure you're describing Wild Fang / Tecmo Knight for Arcade:



(It is a really fun game)

I think I remember that too but the title escapes me, a t first I thought UZ but I'm sure that's wrong.

Ok, I remember this PC game, in the same style of the 90's Sierra point/click RPGs or the Quest for Glory series. Definitely a game of the 90's. You start as a man in a psychiatric ward (or maybe an hospital) and you have to get out.

I remember you could use the fork used for your dinners to either untie yourself or open the window. You escape by the window and then make to a wine cave (or just a cave with barrels). Sound a bit wack like this but it's all I remember as I've seen 10 min of the game at a far away house where family relative were staying. I always wanted to play the game but never remembered the name or seen clips of it on Youtube.

I remember a pc game I played that was a side scroller, maybe taking place in medieval times.  You walked through villages and other areas as, a knight I think, smashing stuff (pots, etc.) but also enemies to slowly get stronger.  God it was in the early 2000s I want to say.  wish I could remember what it was.

I know, vague, ughh!

SleepyFist

Recent game, may or may not even be released yet, all I've got to go on is that the main character might be wearing a white glove with a kind of portal/rift in the back of their hand that you can look through to solve puzzles?

I have recently seen that someone posted about lost games so I felt kind of encouraged for seek help for this.
There are 3 games that I played about 10 years ago that I can't remember well - they were 4 but fortunately I found one in an Action 52 Genesis cart, "Go Bonkers" (big deal for a puzzle).
Let's start:
The first was a NES game (for the graphics I'm almost -not entirely- sure that wasn't Genesis) that started with a white ninja in a snow field, just about to jump almost fullscreen, just after a black screen that said "AREA/STAGE 01", in classic white NES font. It was a side scroll game.
In gameplay ninja moved around between ice platforms and there was one that had a gray rack for climb. All of that was just at the beggining, which is the only stage I remember.

The second was a Genesis kind of RPG that featured an Cool Spot-like (but game is not Cool Spot!) character (I remember him being red) that moved in a old pirate ship (palette for one of the ship's floor was violet) in aerial view/top down view. Later in the game character could go at the top of the ship, that had a yellow palette. This is really the game I searched for long but that didn't found anywhere. Next is also for Genesis, but fortunately more identifiable

And the last was a medieval-greek hero killing dragons, riding dragons with an extremely large HUD and it was really, really hard to beat. Graphics where pretty detailed and I remember it as a Castlevania with dragons, but a lot less colorful (general palette for the first stage was similar to Golden Axe's).

Aaaand there's a fourth one but not as important as the listed above. It was a puzzle EA game (IIRC blue EA logo belongs to old EA) in which you had to set green pieces in a [Longcat.jpg], very long blue board, with others dark blue blocks interfering. The final level was absolutely crazy to beat (blocks were reduced to the minimum size possible and filled all the board!) and it definitively belongs to Genesis.

... and that's all, maybe some old geezer may recognize one of this games (just one would be okay, really...)

Are you sure the Cool Spot-like game was an RPG? I think the sequel (Spot Goes to Hollywood?) was an isometric game with a pirate ship. Or at least the screenshots I remember of it were, I never actually played the game myself.

Killing dragons, huh?
It's been awhile since I played it but maybe Dahna: Megami Tanjou?

The puzzle game... is it Blockout? EA didn't originally make the game but I think they made or at least published the Genesis port.

But this post sounds more like it should be in the "forgotten games thread".

..... so it WAS Cool Spot after all... shocked. I didn't thought it had sequels.

About killing dragons' game, nop, not so similar to Golden Axe. The main character was a strong dude with a sword, and the graphics weren't so simple. I could add that the first stage is in a open space made of stone, as a valley.

The puzzle game was 2D and graphics were quite simple. Just the blue board, blue and green blocks, maybe some counter for the level.

Anyways many, many thanks for hit with Cool Spof; if that was found anything can be found, I hope.

The grey rack part makes me think of a Ninja Gaiden game, but the white ninja part doesn't... Shadow Dancer on Genesis has a white ninja. I can't think of any other NES games that fit that profile.

You sure it's a ninja game? It could by Dragon Fighter by Natsume (starts in a snowy valley, and you are a dude with a sword there). I can't recall any other game like that at the moment, apart from Ninja Crusaders (though that one starts in a ruined city instead). If it's a Genesis game, it could be one of the Shinobi games.

I hope someone can recognize this game. I recall a Super Famicom (or was it a PSX) game, its some sort of a strategy ala Ogre/FF Tactics where there's a Chun-Li look-a-like character and other female cast, and they have some sort of Jojo Stands with each of them.  :-\
FINALLY after several years! Just found the game I was looking for! Its called GUARDIAN RECALL!   :woot!: :woot!: :woot!:

Here's its Anime OP.

I think I identified one of the ones I was looking for, it was Stay Tooned!

And given the description it's no wonder I was confused,
it probably came to me via a shareware demo or something since we had some Sierra games we played back then.

I had been searching forever for this one game, Black Knight, which can be found on sites like newgrounds and miniclip and even downloaded.  It was a lot more simple now, in 2018, than I remember it being as an often drunk UNI student working night shifts in the summer when I first discovered it back in, had to be around 2004.

Another game I am looking for is a simple (I think) DOS game.  I played it in the late 90s but it had to be much older.  The cd had all sorts of games with an awful color scheme.  But an addicting game had an outfielder shagging fly balls.  The more you progressed, the more balls on the screen at a time and the faster they fell.  The animation on the fielder as he moved was super awkward and he could also dive as well.  Anyone know what the game was?

Did anyone figure out what that first game was I remember a game where you went around in a dungeon like a First Person Shooter prospective but it wasn't and you would get attacked by rats, spiders, and I think you had a sword. I didn't play it much but I think it was like an early Tomb Raider maybe. I don't remember much of it but you would get killed very fast and you couldn't really read or tell what happened to you in the game. I think I played it on a MAC though and well the Mac Version of WolfenStein is what was converted to make the SNES version and is different from the PC Version it came from a different code base.

One game I can't find is for the NES or at least I think so, I've searched for it for years as I've played every NES and possibly Famicom game there is or at least I have tried to play it.

Although I never actually Played the game, but my friend was always playing it when I went to his house everyday and he didn't allow talking because it was a very difficult and challenging game and is likely why I don't know the name of it. Anyway it was a First Person Dungeon Crawler where he would collect items like a Huge Shield that he had to hold up later and use to block the fire of a dragon in the game and then some how pass by it. I thought it was probably a Dungeon and Dragons game but none that I tried is like it. I've thought for years that it is likely Shadowgate but I have not made it to a part the game where there is a shield or a dragon you have to pass, all cause I didn't play it back then, I hate dungeon crawlers but I thought it was one I might one day play, but watching it was more fun. lol

The only first-person dungeon crawlers on the NES I know (I assume you mean in English officially) are Wizardrys, Magic & Magic, The Bard's Tale, Dungeon Magic and Swords & Serpents. Supposedly Ultima Exodus had first-person dungeons (top-down overworld) but I never played it long enough to even get to a dungeon. :D
