Best viewed at its source (click to enlarge) due to the large size. How many did you play?

Yes I think they're best left untouched Draad, to live on in memory only. Rose coloured glasses and all that.

Hah!! 15 of them I have played in the last year! Not all in original form though. One (BaSS) is on my iPhone and Transport Tycoon I play the new open source conversion.

And 63 of them I have played in total.

I'm still attached to retro games. I have a great Atari 520STE collection as well.

30, darnit.

I think some games might still work without being nostalgic though. The Theme games, Transport Tycoon, Warcraft II, GTA (I have that on Steam, actually) and Civilization at least are all games I'd happily sit and play around with.

Of course, it wouldn't be the same as it was before, but I think it'd still be fun none the less.

I'm not so lucky. I don't think I can control mine. :P

I got 94.66

It's quicker to list the game I haven't played from that list:
Goblins Quest 3
Darklands
I Have No Mouth
Panzer General
Shadow of the Samurai

The .66 is because one of the games is "Realms of Arkania Trilogy", but I've only played 2 of them. ^^

Memories indeed.

54 out of that list for me. Also have a large number of those up and running on my PC now, enjoy a bit of old time gaming every now and again.

For those that loved Transport Tycoon. Google OTTD and eat your heart out
