    PhazeDelta1: Not bad to play Mass Effect series or Kotor.

    Mean time not bad to play Mafia series,The Saboteur or LA Noire.Classic era games.
    We will not have this kind of games for a long time.No devs like this will ever bring us such kind of games.

    I still need to play Max Payne 3 when I get the chance. I own it on steam, but the download failed somehow at a point, had to redownload and I couldn't be bothered with my 12 mbit internet back then.

    Perhaps I should give it a whirl now with my 100 mbit... as it won't take 2 decades to download this time around.

    Yea, I still have Max Payne 3 rdy to play, but I think I want to replay 1 and 2 first to lead into it, so I got them cheap on steam. Once I finish Syndicate, I'll go back through that trilogy.

    Was going to start Fallout 4, but from what I see the modding isn't going to stop, so I'll play it this spring, when there are some real quality mods that have been refined over the winter.

    If you want to you can either build one from new and used parts found on eBay and places like eSaitech.com. Or you might get lucky and find a complete Win98SE computer. I ended up doing both. I have a brand new Gateway P3 system complete with the Win98SE CD and other goodies. I found it on eBay from a guy who bought it, never opened the boxes and stored them in his attic for 16 years. I got the whole thing for $400!

    My homebuilt has a pair of 3DFX Voodoo2 cards in SLI and I have a Voodoo5 that I bought off a fellow Guru3D member. It really is a lot of fun doing this sort of thing. I'm even contemplating scrounging up an old Commodore 64 and Amiga 500 just for old times sake. Currently I have both of those as emulators from Cloanto.com (they own the Amiga and C64 OS software).

    I'm just finishing up another Jagged Alliance: Back in Action (modded) playthrough. I'm itching to jump into CK2 for a couple hundred more hours soon too (currently at 807hrs and probably will triple that eventually). I also want to play FarCry 4 over the winter, but first I'm trying to verify if my new monitor has an issue or if it's the DP cable. :/

    You guys make me wonder if I should revitalize my old Athlon64 system and set up some XP or something older.

    Heh, to be honest, my current rig makes me busy enough, unstable overclocks and weird behavior at times. Wouldn't want to double it with ME :D

    lol, don't blame you, drop your clocks and see if it starts behaving again, then begin the whole OC routine from scratch, might save a lot of time searching for problems that end up being OC issues

    Nice thread! good list of games! its hard to squeeze in time in my already busy gaming schedule, currently in the middle of fallout 4, recently started my second playthrough of the witcher 3, and relieving my multiplayer urge with halo 5.

    The past two days though ive been playing a few skirmishes of total annihilation which has been a lot of fun. Ive had a craving to play through the witcher 1, crysis 1, and mass effect 1 again though. Those shall be next once I'm done with fallout or witcher :)

    Edit: Oh and for more nostalgia sake, ive been playing total annihilation on my first gaming laptop from like 12 years ago. Its a gateway m675prr with a P4 3.4ghz with HT, 2gb ram, win xp, and a 128mb radeon 9700. This thing was a BEAST back when my dad bought it. I still keep it for my old games:)

    I have such a huge backlog of PC and PS3 games to go through, that I’m not sure if I’ll have the time to revisit older games any time soon. If I still decide to do it, I’ll probably play some S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Max Payne or that old gem Beyond Good and Evil.

    Cool. My old Amiga had the extra 512K RAM kit as well. It was outfitted with an external 40 Meg SCSI hard drive and a Commodore 15" monitor displaying 1096 colors (in 1987!). But I sold it in 1994 when I bought my first 486 Gateway that came with 4 Megs of RAM and a 2X CD drive.

    The emulator I have from Cloanto gives me access to all versions of the Amiga including the Amiga 4000. They own Amiga Workbench now and incorporated it with WinUAE (Windows Universal Amiga Emulator). All the original Amiga games can be found on the Internet as files that you unpack and install on a virtual drive. Once it's all set up you just open Workbench, click on the file cabinet icon and double-click to launch a game. I bought the emulator for $30 which includes a license for the Amiga OS and a starter kit of games.

    They have a similar setup for Commodore 64. They are called, "Amiga Forever" and "C64 Forever" respectively. I run both without any problems at all on my Win7 computer.

    Hell yea! One of the best action games ever. The only problem is that when I play it is that I drink bourbon just like Max.

    I forgot to mention something about the Amiga emulator that a fomer owner of an actual Amiga would appreciate. When you start up a game it takes the same amount of time for the software to process as it would on the original hardware. And Cloanto has included the sounds of the disk drive reading the disk while to software is loading. This little feature does have an impact on your experience of using the emulator that I found pleasing.

    Cant play most older games. Mainly because they've been surpassed on every level by by newer games. Especially FPS since they're inferior in combat mechanics, graphics, gameplay (vs todays titles). Crysis 1 feels to me now almost what Quake 2 felt like when Crysis was first released. Even its graphics (aside from detailed foliage) sucks now (yes, sucks) vs newer titles.

    Mass Effect 2 though I think I can get into if I give it a shot, though the element of surprise is gone which may drag it down a bit. HL2 I tried to replay a few months back and quit about 20% through. Again inferior for same reasons mentioned. Nice nostalgia for a brief moment but quickly wore off. Only old games I can play are RTS, like Supcom, Supcom FA, Rise of Nations, etc, as these have room for variation and experimenting with new strategies.

    A few weeks ago I replayed Tomb Raider (2013) and loved it as much as the first time.. but thats not an old game really.
