    The four player modes in these games are so fun.

    The SNES version of rock and roll racing is much better than the megadrive version :cool:

    I would go crazy if I couldn't pick up a little Metal Slug and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 every few months or so.

    EDIT: and Mario Kart 64 and Mike Tysons Punchout NES version

    I reinstalled Age of Empires 3 over the weekend. It made me cry about how bad SupCom2 and C&C4 really are. RTS games, pffft.

    I actually prefer AoE2, but you have to jump through hoops to get it to work in widescreen, and even then it isn't "right". I might build a legacy system just for it.

    No mention of Hero's Quest/Quest for Glory in that Sierra mash? Sad.:wtf:

    Love me some Sierra games.

    Warzone 2100. Now released as open source. Amazing RTS game for ~1998. Best with vtol truck mod, researchmod2, and limits mod. Glide rules!
    Red Alert 2 (with or without Yuri's revenge) I can do Chrono Storm in ~9 minutes, if everything goes just right:D

    It goes without saying. Those games were FANTASTIC. True story. I ordered QFG2: Trial by Fire, and sent my payment in for both the game and the hintbook. I guess my dad shorted them for the hintbook, but they sent it anyway with a note saying I should pay for one next time.

    Sierra was an awesome company for a teenager.

    Before I started PC gaming a couple of years ago, I kept up with playing my older games a lot more. If I ever get back to it, here's what I'd be playing:

    Final Fantasy VI/VII/VIII/X
    Secret of Mana
    Chrono Trigger
    Shadow Hearts/Shadow Hearts Covenant

    I used to cycle through these games every few months since their release. I still get the urge to replay them regularly, it just seems like I never have time anymore. :( Back in the SNES days though, I would just cycle through FFVI, Chrono Trigger, and Secret of Mana. I did that until I got a PS1 in '99.

    1. Delta Force 2, TFD, and BHD
    2. Need for Speed Most Wanted and Underground 2
    3. Matt Hoffman's Pro BMX
    4. Minesweeper :laugh:
    5. Rogue Spear

    Often it has nothing to do with the games themselves—it's pure nostalgia for some of them. But Delta Force BHD and NFSMW are truly downright fun.

    Hero's Quest / Quest for Glory - 1 & 2 ( After they went "all-mouse" - It kinda killed adventure games for me)
    Diablo 1 & 2 - WITH HIGH RES PATCHES - It's like a brand new game!
    Dungeon Keeper
    Starcraft 1 - WITH HIGH RES PATCHES - It's like a brand new game!

    Honorable Mention :

    Legend Of Kyrandia Series

    I'm playing Heroes of Might and Magic III now. :laugh:

    If only my other older games' CD still work like Fallout 2, MDK and Command and Conquer Red Alert (plus Counterstrike and Aftermath)...

    I play PS1 games through an emulator. My actual PlayStation's beyond repair anyway, but the cd's I have still work.

    3)System Shock 2 - play it from time to time
    4)Freespace 2 the FOSS version is pretty good
