    Anyone still have a fave old game ?.





    My fave old dos based game.
    Old horror style game:
    Realms Of The Haunting or ROTH.

    Realms of the Haunting is a British adventure game, played from the first-person perspective, released in 1997 by Gremlin. The 3D engine used in this game was borrowed from Gremlin's own Normality engine.

    The Horror: Realms Of The Haunting @ www.realmsofthehaunting.com





    Game looks dated now,but still has atmosphere,which i find is lacking in a lot of more recent games.
    Anyone else have a fave old game they still play from years gone by ?.

    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?

    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.
