I still love Warcraft 3 :D

Tried to play The Sims again, but that just ended up being a buggy mess :/

What are some of your favorite old games that you keep coming back to? ;)

They all work on Windows 8 silly.

But I would have to say Warcraft III as well :D

I tried installing Diablo 2, Far Cry, and Quake, and they won't play. You said they all work, so how would I fix this? Quake says something about it being 16bits, and the OS being 64. Far Cry will launch, but then the sceen is completely black when I start a game. Diablo 2 just freezes my PC. I installed them from the discs if that matters.

Waiting for Hyrule Warriors, Smash Bros WiiU, Zelda WiiU, and MK X.
My backlog consists of 174 games, across 22 consoles. Not including my Steam library.

Your system sounds unstable, to start with.

Quake is a DOS game, is it not? Play it in DOSBox.

Mess with the compatibility modes for Diablo 2 - I'd be astonished if it took an actual work-around to get the game functioning properly.

For Far Cry, I'm thinking it's a graphics processor or driver issue, but you can try compatibility mode anyway. That seems to fix it for the other people who initially had trouble getting it working properly.

croc 2 probably.

Look above. I'm sorry that you meant brainless install and then nothing to play them.

Diablo II probably just needs to be set to XP mode like I have to do for Warcraft II.

Diablo 2 works in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1.
