Anyone remember Rogue Squadron 3D? I found it again recently, installed it and played through it again-and love it! Anyone else gobne back to a game they haven't played for a while recently?

With my PC a total mess I can't play any games newer than Red Alert 2 and Shogun:Total War.
So my recent return was to Halflife, I played it when it came out but being just a young nipper back then I never got very far before I gave up...it took me 2 nights to get farther than I had before. :p

...BG2 isn't old...I still play BG regularly, I can't run BG 2. :(
And I can't get my copy of Medieval TW to work.
I can play skirmish games but if I go into any option that brings up the campaign map (be it the full campaign or just the campaign tutorial) the game crashes on me. :wtf: I hate my PC...I also can no longer play Mechwarrior 4 online for some reason.

Oh yeah they can be added to the list I guess, Mechwarrior Vengence, Black Knight and Mercenaries.

BG2 is at least 5 years old.. isn't it????

Well, if you're talking really old, then I discovered an ancient disk with Daggerfall on the other month. Installed it, ran it, laughed my head off, and then turned it off. Was great at the time, though (and paved the way for Morrowind.. one of my favourite all time games).

Also still hammer super puzzle fighter on the play station/ps2. That's years old.

neXus, you are in serious need of an upgrade, my friend :eek:

With the current Star Wars craze, I deceided to re-install Jedi Outcast. Great game. It's not really old and for some reason I like it better than it's successor: Jedi Academy.

I'm still a fan of Doom 2. Playing it multiplayer on xbox is pure greatness. :D

I've been playing a lot of Beasts and Bumpkins lately. Now there's a funny (but terribly hard) game.

That's quite odd, about two months ago I re-installed that. However, turns out I'm just as crap at it as I used to be, which was pretty depressing really. I also recently played through Deus Ex again (although I guess it's not that old) and that hadn't aged a day, still one of the best games ever. And just today, I found my copy of Crash Bandicoot for the playstation! The first game I ever owned for that platform, it brought a tear to my eye...

Red Alert 2 was such a great game... so much better than C&C generals...

Still, it had it's faults... (everyone playing as allies, soviets being underpowered, host refusing to allow you to play as Yuri...).

I followed it up by re-installing the awesome Lego Racers :D Rock Raiders is kicking around somewhere as well...*temptation*

Strange to have games like Lego Racers and Rogue Squadron on the same PC as Dawn of War, KOTOR 2 and the Earth 2160 beta...

Total Annihilation! One of the best RTS games ever! A month ago I replayed Fallout 2 for the tenth time, and now I'm thinking about restarting X-Wing Alliance!

Civ 2
Though I'm thinking of getting something a bit more up to date, like an older Total War

Deus Ex
Red Alert 2

Both are amazing games.
