    Can you please completely do away with the read more button. It's completely useless. If I want to stop reading in the middle, I'm perfectly capable of stopping myself. The read more button is nothing more than an annoyance. I like the slideshow type articles you've had, but the read more just needs to die.

    couldnt agree more with heretic/hexen remake. Does anyone remember Rise of the Triad? that was a great FPS at the time.

    What the hell toms. Most of the article is covered in adds, can't see the pictures or read the article without adds covering up the words and pictures.

    well, this is unreadable, and unusable at the moment. I can't change the photo, and I cant "read more".

    Ok I was able to make it readable, but only by block EVERY flash add on the page.

    Seriously toms, your a tech site, if your going to use flash ad's then you need to be smart about their placement and usage.

    Rise of the Triad was pretty cool. Man I remember playing at some point most of these games at LAN parties. Our LANs revolved around Quake but I remember one year some MIT guys had an alpha of Hexen II and that was pretty cool to mess with. Seeing Redneck Rampage, King Pin, even the South Park game brings back memories.

    For the record, MechWarrior didn't become property of Microsoft until the fourth (and last) game in the series. It was published by Activision for the first two and Microprose for the third installment. Not that I care about Shogo... I hadn't even heard about it intil this slide show.

    Of the above games personally I most care about Hexen (but not Heretic) and Doom, and somewhat care about Wolfenstein 3D and Descent.

    There are quite a few old games I'd like remade, but most of them are not FPS (we have plenty of those being published to this day...). I'd love to see remakes or new installments of Sierra's lines of adventure games (Space Quest, King's Quest, Quest for Glory, etc), Master of Magic, X-COM 1, 2 and 3 (but not the later abominations), the original Dune (the one based on the movie, not Dune 2 that started the RTS craze, though I liked that as well), BlueByte's Battle Isle 1, 2, and 3 (but not 4), Lords of Magic, Starflight, Alien Legacy, Raptor, Tyrian, The Incredible Machine, Lemmings and quite a few more, though these come to mind right now.

    No ads problem, Firefox with Flashblock addon. Nice article and yes better graphics would be nice but the game themselves even with that level of graphics stood the test of time (replayed wolfenstien 3d as recently as a year ago).

    ^+1 still have some of those sierra games (inc leisure suit larry). My personal faves I would like to see made: ultima underworld I (stygian abyss) and II, might and magic 1 and 2 (4-6 felt the same), and that bruce lee game on commadore 64.

    Hey guys,

    Just reported this bug. Not sure what happened, but clearly something is broken in the picture story format. Asking for help from the French team as we speak. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Page 1 seems to be the problem, everything's fine from Page 2 onwards.

    Hope it helps
