    Im not sure where the pack can be found on its own, but if you head to Good Ol Games, you can buy Redneck Rampage and all its add ons, with the Cuss Pack for like $5 or something. Best of all it works on XP and Vista! Check it out;

    Awesome thread guys!

    I don't have any of my old boxes, but I saw some in this thread that i had.

    All the Papyrus NASCAR games, Command and Conquer series(all the red alerts, cc, tiberium sun and expansions), I started out gamin in 98 or 99 (23 now.) Used to play a game called TAW (Total Air War) it had like an FAA manual for the F-22, awesome game. I had all the NFS games, before underground and all that CRAP. I miss those big boxes. I remember going to my local fairgrounds for PC trade shows and rummaging through all the huge boxes trying to find a cheap price for a popular game. I remember buildin a celeron 667Mhz PC so i could play Red alert and Diablo/2

    Well, it's not the only one ever sold, I've got the same box laying around here somewhere... I remember it cost about 40 euro's back then, awesome box! I got another 3 cd jewelcase with it, only housing the 3 original C&C discs for Dos I think, awesome!

    I still have Airfix...what an awesome game, i just wish it had proper gamepad support. I can't play it on my 360 gamepad but on others i would map it to keboard. It even had a pretty decent level editor that was easy to use.
    Another game Airfix reminds me of is Revolt. but i can't get it to play anymore, not vista or W7.
    They need a Windows 95/98 emulator just for classic games cause compatability mode is a joke.

    I wish I had Icewind Dale. If it were on Steam I would get it, but that just doesn't seem right. If I did get it, it would have to be in a good condition box.

    Nice, I've never seen Thief 1 or 2 in a square big box. They were released in triangle boxes in the US.

    Thief....man talk about a great series...I too have never seen them in big boxes....I also only thought they were in triangle boxes......very nice.

    Makalu.....that Falcon 4.0 manual looks like a damn catalog :)

    I loved every one of the Daggerfall boxes shown so far.

    I also like the inside of the Nascar 2 box showing all of the components of the car....all were adjustable also and effected how the car handled.

    I remember finding a site online ....maybe at the racing groove....that had what to do to fix your car for instance if it was tight in the middle of a corner.......they were probly 6 or 7 different things you could do....and they may effect the car in other ways.......I printed the WHOLE thing out and put it in a spiral ring binder ......it is awsome and I still have it and use it today.

    It was written by Rodney Arndt.
