    Both great games, in that clan you also have the brilliant Theme Hospital.

    Transport Tycoon was brilliant, if you loved it give Open-TTD a spin. The signalling has been much improved and you can play online.

    Stepping away from stratergy, you gotta love Lucasarts adventures stuff.

    Is he a good employee? He seems to go on a lot of junkets...
    I'd keep my eye on him!!

    I was so happy when I found the OTTD & then the same kind of thing for Theme Hospital!! If they can do the same for Dugeon Keeper I will wet myself!

    DOTT is still one of the best games I have ever played!

    Nothing yet, DK2 did work under XP untill I installed a graphics card. DK sort of works under DosBox, but has big slowdown issues on the later levels. I've been meaning to build a Windows 98SE virtual machine for these things.

    OpenTTD - Run a small server for friends from time to time (Easiest way to upgrade i have found for Rail-Tram-Mono is to get all your trains to return to depot making sure at least 1 Depot on each line is already upgraded/inacessible, once all trains are in the depot upgrade the entirity of the line then re-build the trains in the upgraded depot and copy the instructions from the now defunct trains (Copy orders - release new train - deleate old train, saves duplicationg orders to trains that can't shift that particular type of goods))

    Xcom - Love it got the collectors edition (Enemy unknown, TFTD, Apoc, Interceptor) though i never realy used any weapon other than lazors (Gotta love the no ammo issue) Did anyone ever play/compleate this on the insane difficulty?

    Archimedean Dynasty Stole many hours
    Theme Hospital
    C&C (Many therof) Stole half my childhood
    Carrier Command on the atari XE
    Prince Of Persia

    If I Had to choose one it would be Open TTD followed VERY Closely by UFO Enemy Unknown/TFTD (Only due to replayability value / Adjustable Variables and multiplayer)

    FIFA international soccer for the mega drive, great football game for its time. Best part was if you fouled someone you could run away from the ref so he couldnt give you a card.

    Had it on the Amiga - you could score goals by running up the pitch in a zig zag and running round the keeper to walk into the goal

    Edit :

    Okay this thread isn't good for my health, just remembered..

    Seek and destroy
    Desert strike
    And Z which was like the original company of hero's

    Total Annihilation which was better then C&C but not as popular, which has a cool reboot http://springrts.com/

    How old are we talking? I recently went on a bit of an eBay spending craze (the missus wasn't happy, but that's another story) and bought a NES, a Megadrive, a SNES, a Dreamcast and a few PS1 games (to play on my "old" PS3)...

    Most of the games I love have already been mentioned, but I'm going to throw Terminator 2 on the NES in to the mix. Granted, you can complete it in 1 hour flat and it doesn't really vary much, but there's just something about that game for me... I completed it last night in fact

    Also, Maniac Mansion (also NES, believe you could get it on Megadrive in the states...) is an amazing game, so in depth for the time too with multiple endings and story changing depending on your choices (even on your choice of players at the start of the game!)

    EDIT: I'm bookmarking this post and working through to see what I can pick up on eBay now
