that was good fun! :D

What are some of those older games that you just get the urge to play from time to time? And by older, I mean at least 5 years old.

For me, the top five have to be:

1.) Star Trek the Next Generation - A Final Unity(Saddly, it is currently unplayable on any of my systems due to the 64-bit OSes.)
2.) Evil Genius
3.) RailRoad Tycoon Deluxe(Totally free now!!!)
4.) Command and Conquer Red Alert 2(Deezire Mod makes it awesome fun.)
5.) Star Trek Armada 2
+1!! Do you ever play Bridge Commander? I still pick that one up once in a while, love that game.
