Sometimes I feel that I have been spoiled by new games and their immersiveness or at least the graphics and physics of modern games. New statistics keep me playing, a reason why I guess I still enjoy playing Deus Ex. Which I guess is the oldest retail PC game I own just now... that or Homeworld, not sure what came first.
Oh I found a SNES and a bunch of old games over at my mum’s house if that that counts... Even found a Game Gear and a load of games also
Saying that I have got an old copy of the Blade Runner game kicking about somewhere.
I still have Quake 1 and Duke 3D somewhere.
I usually pick up games after a year they have been out when the price reaches around $20 or less.
Now, the game that I am trying to get working are the GoldBox AD&D games from SSI. Now this is really old school. Back in the day I only got to play Champions of Krynn, Gateway to the Savage Frontier and Curse of the Azure Bonds. I bought the collection several years ago and I have been wanting to play it, in chronological order so I can transfer my characters from game to game . Installs fine in XP and shortly after I create my character in Pool of Radiance it asks for disk 3. *ugh*. I have searched around and found some fixes but I' not in a rush to play.
I play freelancer,freespace 2, emulators for mame and the old consoles, and I occasionally dabble in mechwarrior 4(actually used to play it quite well,known the world over) and dungeon siege. I dont get to play games so much, with a teen, tweener,and a social butterfly gf, so i dont even bother to look at the new stuff
