Maybe not the oldest games, but I have found myself playing Final Fantasy games. I just finished Final Fantasy 7 not too long ago and I am now on Final Fantasy 8.

I have played them before but never finished them so I thought I would finally get around to it. Also, with a game series so hyped up as Final Fantasy you pretty much have to play them all the way through to see what all the fuss is all about.

Star Control 2 - it's a serious contender for best game ever, has an incredibly engrossing story, and it's basically freeware (the title is different is all). Search for it - you'll find it.


Please, allow me =)

I certainly don't mind the effort for a game as good as Star Control 2, and there really aren't that many of such quality.

As far as old games go, I still play some Psi-5 Trading Company (C64) from time to time. Its one of my all time favorites from back when I was a kid, really unique and I don't think there's any other game quite like it, even after all these years. Also it still manages to challenge me as it really tests your multitasking ability... IIRC I complete only ~60% of my missions, all it takes is one lucky (unlucky for the player) shot to an unshielded quadrant, which disables a reactor, which de-powers your engines, which incurs more hits, which takes out your other reactor, which de-powers your weapons, which allows hostile boarding parties... it usually doesn't end well =/

I've been playing Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance and Independence War with some Midtown Madness 2 and Homeworld multiplayer on the side.

On the subject of older games, I've been wanting to play the controversial Battlecruiser 3000AD, but I can't get it to run in DOSBox. :(
