Best viewed at its source (click to enlarge) due to the large size. How many did you play?
About 31. Brought back some fond memories. Not sure I could play them today though ;-)
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.
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.
Scored 51, i have no gaming addiction seriously i can control it
I'm not so lucky. I don't think I can control mine.
I got 94.66
It's quicker to list the game I haven't played from that list:
Goblins Quest 3
I Have No Mouth
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. ^^
I'm impressed BlackD! I managed around 45.
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
I can only recall playing about 13 of the games in that list, but it definitely brings back memories. I remember D/Generation being awesome, but I had no idea what the game was even called until now.
Ohhh it's such a good game. Well worth some retro gaming.
71 for me, but as a child of the 80s I had a lot of free time to play these and more.
Surprising how many in the list I still own through the marvels of GOG!
33 for me. good walk down memory lane!
Around 30 for me.
I'd say the point 'n click adventure games definitely still stand up to todays standards: Sam & Max, Day of the Tentacle, Indiana Jones, the Monkey Islands, Full Throttle, any of the LucasArts adventure games really. Gotta love ScummVM.
Also Theme Hospital is still brilliant. Plus UFO: Enemy Unknown (XCOM: UFO Defence), Transport Tycoon and Tyrian. All still fantastic.
43 games played
Though I must admit I did not complete all of these games. Looking back I think the main problem was that I drowned in games. Played the game a couple of hours then started on a new one.
But games like Syndicate, Quake, Abuse, Doom, Settlers, Dune 2, Another World, Lemmings, Leisure suit Larry, Command Conquer I finished. Alot of these games i still have on a portabel USB disk along with a portabel dosbox. Lets me play anywhere.
37 Good memories. And yeah, most are unplayable in so many ways... The memory bank is the best place for them now
48 games. Star Wars Tie Fighter would be good for a remake
21 for me mostly fps games ...scorched earth was the first ever pc game i played on my first pc a 486 with 4mb ram...i remember having seprerate floppy boot disks depending on weather a game needed extended or expanded memory...editing config.sys and autoexec.bat files was an artform in itself
Damn flawed list. Best games ever on DOS are Nethack and Ancient Domains of Mystery, and neither rate a mention.
