    @Dos_Box X-Wing Alliance works on Windows 7 if you run it through Steam

    *Edit*

    Set it to run in Windows 98 Compatibility Mode
    Tell Steam to scan for new games
    Run through steam with 3d acceleration switched off

    However it wont run in full screen

    This! X-Com all the way! I Still fire up Enemy Unknown in the afternoons thinking 'I'll just play an hours or so' and next time I look outside its 5am.

    another great old game I find myself going back to is Wing Commander : Privateer. (Thank you Dosbox)

    I have just found out (to my utter joy) that it runs fine on a GeForce GTX460. Just not on a Radeon which is what it was running on before. I didn't even need compatability mode!

    Everything by Sensible Software. Sensible Soccer, Cannon Fodder, Wizkid... all brilliant.

    Syndicate on the Amiga is probably a defining part of my imagination as well, even though I was rubbish at it at 8 years old.

    Teenage years were spent in Duke Nukem 3D and the Build editor, which I'm surprised no-one has mentioned yet!

    Definitely! I lurve the X-Com series. And another Jullian Gollop game for the ZX Spectrum - Chaos (gr8 to play with m8s).

    Also Age of Empires 1,2+3, and Unreal Tournament are essential games for any LAN party.

    Recently been playing the old NES game Excite Bike, but revamped in 3D on the 3DS, I'm also gonna download good old GB Donkey Kong for the 3DS Virtual Console soon (once I get my head out of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D).

    Loved the first, second wasn't as good imho.

    Sim tower
    Constructor
    Golden Axe
    Baldurs Gate
    Fallout
    Blood
    Shadow Warrior (took me a while to remember the name, loved this!)
    Heretic
    Hexen
    Little big adventure

    Can name so many more... I always go back to them and find them not worthy of my nostalgia compared to new games
