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.

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.
