Commander Keen - both trilogies were great. There is also a fan made final trilogy that I've been meaning to play
Star Goose - A very old shmup for PC, where you played a goose in a goose shaped space ship
KKnD - Aussie made post-apocalyptic RTS that was a lot of fun
Sam & Max Hit the Road - A classic point n click adventure game from LucasArts, easily my favourite
You know, I loved that game when it was out but never got past the first three or four levels. I played it through to the end last year and found it pretty frustrating in a lot of places. Like a lot of DOS games I think it just hasn't aged well. Whacky Wheels was another one I really liked but today I can't really stand it for more than a few minutes.Shinanigans wrote:Jazz JackRabbit
Have you tried War for the Overworld? It's supposed to be a spiritual sequel to DK but I haven't played it so I don't know how well it pulls that off (if at all).Forgetful_Lion wrote:I'd love a Dungeon Keeper sequel (mobile game doesn't count).

Absolutely! Loved both The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2:LeChuck's Revenge HD remakes. The originals came from a time when LucasArts still made really awesome, creative games.acegiak wrote:You know what was great and had a really nice hd remake? The Secret of Monkey Island. Definitely one of my all time favorites.
OMG i remember this game fond memories are just barely coming back too me.Mugsy wrote:Anyone ever play Centurion: Defender of Rome?
I would love to try elite, but it looks to complicated for my liking...Vital-Blurs wrote:Freelancer.....I let a mate borrow my copy years ago and never saw it again. Luckily Elite:Dangerous fills that void now.....mostly.
The Secret of Monkey Island was my favourite. It was just when the presentation of their games took a step up and it had some of the best humour in the series IMO The rhyming pirate duels were legendaryacegiak wrote:You know what was great and had a really nice hd remake?

When I played it last year with the unofficial patch it held up well and keep in mind I'd never played the game before so I didn't have nostalgia affecting my experience/opinions.storm84 wrote:The game I'd really love to see a sequel for (or remade in HD) is Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines.
I know I could still play it now, I suppose, but I worry it has aged badly.
I tried to recently play Soul Reaver on PSX using emulation but I didn't remember the combat being so poor but then it was an early 3d game. If I do get a Dreamcast I might pick Soul Reaver up for that as I've read it's the best version of the game running at 480p and 60fps when using VGA.vcatkiller wrote:That said perhaps it's because I've always compared it to Soul Reaver, which is just effing awesome and deserves a decent official remake. There's an unofficial remake called "Soul Revenant" and it looks awesome, so I guess there's that.
Accessibility and mass market appeal are key now for AAA games, rarely have I played something new in the last few years that felt inspired often left with the feeling a game was designed by checklist for what would maximise sales and a very unremarkable experience as a result.Stoibs wrote:The industry certainly has moved in another direction that doesn't favour us fans of the classics.
Early Diablo 2 LOD had incomplete drop tables and various patches for classic and LOD had lower drop rates so that could be what you remember.Venom wrote:I have been playing through Diablo 2 as I never finished it as a kid. Got my GF tagging along too, its much more fun with a friend. The drop rate seems a tad more favorable than I remember haha, so many rares and several uniques and we have only just finished Act 1.
AoE and AoE II were about as in-depth RTS I could handle, don't enjoy excessive micromanagement and AoE was fun to play co-operatively with friends vs multiple AI opponents.Matty wrote:I miss the original age of empires. I played that game so much.
A friend had that game but I never played it, puzzle games weren't my thing back then but I was 12 years old.Matty wrote:Also Kurushi. It's an old ps1 puzzle game. It's probably one of my all time favourite games. My gf laughs that I play all these games and my favourite game is this old ps1 game no ones ever heard of.
Yeah, war HAS never been so much fun...jambo wrote:What about this classic?

Kurishi and Age Of Empires were amazing! I wish the AOE2 hd remake were linux friendly :/ It's in my steam account but I don't have a windows machine to play on anymore.Matty wrote:I miss the original age of empires. I played that game so much.
