Oldest PC game you still play today?


Recommended Posts

War in Russia (1992/93)

 

By far not the oldest game I play, but the oldest pc game :">

Diablo...or Starcraft

I had thought that some of nature's journeymen had made men and not made them well, for they imitated humanity so abominably. - Book of Counted Sorrows

For 'consistent' replay, Freespace 1 and 2, but I have a penchant for going back and playing much older games that I have loved (Realms of the Haunting, Betrayal at Krondor, GK1/2, Wing Commander 1-4 to name a few recently revisited). I archived all my old DOS games from floppies to 8 CD's full, just to preserve them; and when nothing in current games looks remotely interesting, I haul them out. Sometimes the graphics are a bit wanting, but the stories aren't. Dev's should take note--your fancy graphics will fade to technology, but the story and characters will make you immortal.

Thief and Freespace 2.

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

 

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

So let us go and embrace the rustling smells of unseen worlds

Most recent old game was Wing Commander 4 (which I immortalised by compiling the 6 CD's and burnt onto an "Armor-plated DVD").

 

The other 3 that come to mind are Star Trek: A Final Unity, Transport Tycoon Deluxe (because of the modern day patch enhancements) and the best game I've ever played (hmmm, close call between this and WC4)...Tie Fighter!

Darth Revan for the greater good my ass...
