I still play Master of Orion 1/2, Master of Magic, Mechcommander, and I'm trying to figure out how to run X-Com on modern computers.

Oh, Microprose! Where art thou!

I got the public domain Ultima 4, but it runs too fast to catch moongates. :) 

I also have a few MAME's, but USB joysticks are horrible. I can't flap fast enough to fly in Joust.

But here's a classic: I somehow still have the retail copy of Rogue. I must have kept copying it from harddrive to harddrive as I upgraded my computer.

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 played the original Fallout for a bit of a change recently. Ugly as sin, but good fun.

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 think I got the SSI set somewhere too. :) 

But after playing Wizardry and Bard's Tale, the SSI interface was just horrible.

More blasts from the pasts (not actually loaded, just lying around)
Warlords 1 (on 3.5" floppy)
Myst
Ultima Underworld I and II

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

There is also a game called red faction i used to play, but it wont run on my system anymore, one of the best fps shooters i ever played.
