If you like horror games with armosphere, try Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
Or indeed, if you're looking for old games in general, Good old Games (GOG.com) is a good place to look!
Personal favourites would be Baldur's Gate, Wing Commander, Jet Strike, Sensible Soccer, in fact, almost any game on the Amiga CD32.

What a superb game that was. I spent many an hour playing it online. Other favourites include the original Rainbow Six game, Mechwarrior 2 and the original Homeworld, but to be honest there are too many fond memories of games to mention.

Paperboy is surely up there with the best of them. I used to have it on my Atari. Either that, or golden axe on the mega drive. As far as the nintendo goes there can be only one (and with a gun too) Duck Hunt!
Anyone agree or am I alone?

i always prefered the 1st command and conquer game esp the dos version where you could starve the enemy out by surrounding their base enterances with sandbag walls lol

A few different games here. Shadow Warrior for shoot-em-up stuff. Escape Velocity for space-empire stuff. And Harry the Handsome executive for the 'you're a man in a swivel chair who uses a staple gun and cans of soda to kill things and and fight the evil company' stuff.
The latter 2 are Mac OS 9 only. One day I'll buy myself an old mac to run them on.
