Combat for the 2600, still super fun 2 player pvp action.
Asteroids is the greatest game ever made.

Galaxian > Space Invaders

I'll throw a nod to gauntlet which four friends and I spent 4-6 hours playing on a MAME box a few weeks ago. In retrospect that was actually a giant waste of time beyond the first hour, having unlimited credits and all.......

I don't play it now, but have picked this series up so many times over the years and played for many hours;
Might & Magic VI
Might & Magic VII

These games had so much content and things to work for.. graphics were cheap but gameplay simply amazing.

Also, recently played Chrono Trigger (for Snes) and before that Secret of mana, my favorite snes-game of all times. :)

The last one I can remember right now: Baldur's gate 1 & 2
Still play to date. Epicly amazing series that could be played many times through. Favorite PC game of all-time.


Oh M&M IV clouds of Xeen was the only one I ever played, it was amazing! I think it may have been the second DOS prompt I learned too :p

Ultima 7 would probably be the oldest game I play off and on. (1992)

I also have the complete ROM library of every NES and SNES game ever made, in every country/region.


Check out Secret of Mana 3 in your SNES library (it should be there and probably with the fan translation and update). It's an absolutely great JRPG and can be played with up to 3 or 4 people with the right fan port. Worked great on the lap top hooked up to the 50" with 4 usb xbox controllers :)


Tip for the original guy here: there's a very good chance it's in your library as Seiken Densetsu 3, not Sword of Mana 3. It was never released in the States, and I usually see it with the Japanese name. It IS a great game, though.

every couple years I break out X-com, and Master of Magic, two of the best PC games ever made (DosBox rules for this).

NES: Bionic Commando, Ninja Gaiden.

SNES Blackthorne

Genesis: G&G hardest game ever made that's worth playing (okay maybe Tied with Shadow of the beast and Ninja Giaden NES).

The last three I play via Emulators and an Xperia Play (Android smart phone with built in gamepad) G&G was made for save states... lol it's STILL HARD even when you can save.

Doom.
Grab Quake and install the darkplaces engine and the Quake Revitalization Project textures (don't forget the normalmap textures, pretty water patch, and updated lighting for levels).

Same gameplay. Same atmosphere. Updated graphics (DX9ish).
WAY better than most current FPS titles.

You should give M&M VI a shot. You can pick up 1-6 from GOG for $10, and VI was the best IMHO.

Tecmo Super Bowl for NES, Intelligent Qube on PS1, and Action Quake 2.

Unfortunately, most AQ2 servers are based on other continents. So, playing with a base 150-200 ping is not easy... but much more rewarding when landing a kill or series of strafe/rooftop jumps.

I have always wanted to replay Quake SP, I remember when GL Quake came out and I almost used that as my excuse, with a Monster 3d freshly installed though I had too many other games to play. Thanks for this heads up...

One good turn deserves another: http://www.blackmesasource.com/

Original Half-life 1 using the HL2 source engine, AAA quality total conversion. check the vids.

I liked this thread a lot more when it was in General and people were posting like crazy. Now it's just become a testament to how little people read the other forums.

Let's keep it going, guys. If you don't play any old games, go over to Good Ol' Games (gog.com) and check some stuff out. They got a lot of the stuff that we've mentioned in this thread, plus a bunch of other awesome games. Most of them are cheap, too!

Ooh interesting. I'm currently part way through half-life source.

I'm glat you liked the links. I've run across a few people who are quake purists. Not everyone approves of sourceports apparently. O.o

Here are some videos of Quake with Darkplaces (they don't include pretty (DX9) water or bumpmapped textures. They're low quality, but you'll get the point.

From time to time, I play Hero's of Might & Magic II. I'll also plug in my good 'ole Super NES and play Prowrestling, Ice Hockey, Blades of Steel, and Super Mario Bros.

I know right, but then someone... I can't imagine who... Moved it to the annex where it now waits to die...

Really Bashiok, this thread didn't count for a general discussion?

Zelda CE for Game Cube. It has Zelda 1, 2 and the N64 titles on it... but also a PC game called Subspace (came out in the mid 90's) which I still play to this day.

Thanks to GOG.com I can now enjoy my old favourites like X-com (or as we call it in Australia 'UFO - Enemy Unknown'), the original Syndicate, and Dungeon Keeper 2.

I wish I still had my old Commodore Amiga running so I could play games like the original Cannon Fodder; the Amiga versions of games were always much better than the PC version, with sharper graphics and better sound.

Zeus Master of Olympus + the Poseidon expansion.

Heroes of Might and Magic 3

I love GOG.com and check it every day for new stuff. They've been adding like 3 or 4 games a week recently.
