    I'm just wondering, do you play old 1999-2003 games?

    Me? I play Fighter Ace II (1999), Panzer Commander (1998), European Air War (1998), Silent Hunter (1996), Pearl Harbor:Zero Hour and Pearl Harbor Defend the Fleet and B-17 Flying Fortress: The Mighty 8th! (2002. But to date, December 31 2001)

    Some other games I play are Crimson Skies (2001), Rollercoaster Tycoon (1999), Zoo Tycoon (2000), Midtown Madness (1999), Midtown Madness 2(2001), Motocross Madness 2 (2000), Monstertruck Madness (1999) and tons more non-WWII games!

    mollusc used to have a ZX Spectrum emulator on his old PC, we were able to play RebelStar Raiders on it from 1984.
    I'd love to have another go at it, just been Googling for it but can't find a way of playing it on my PC.
    Help anyone......?

    I still play the original version of The Operational Art of War, which I think dates from around 1996 or 97. I've got a couple of old DOS games from the early 90s (Silent Service & Great Naval Battles of the North Atlantic) on my hard disc but haven't played them for a while.

    BF42 (2002) is still one of the best games in that genre and with some mods still being updated (and hundreds of others) it replay value is second to none (hence why I still play it more than any other game I own)...

    And I simply love the old W98 times Talonsoft's East Front and West Front. Artificial Intelligence is not so great, but they are fine vehicles for PBEM.
     
  6. I play CoD 1, thats old.

    Even older, I loved the original Panzer General, I grew up on it. :) I just wish I could find it and play it again, but there's always Panzer Tactics DS. :)

    It's a pity 'Sold out' havn't produced Red Baron for XP or Vista. I played hours on it while I still had Windows 98. Now I have Vista, it don't go no more!!!!

    I'm still playing Call Of Duty United Offensive. Pretty old game, but very good though.

    Spl's Spectrum version of Arnhem a bridge too far from the 80's, firstly on emulator download but then got a copy of Spectrum and Commodore classics and found it on there too. Dated but addictive.

    A couple of arcade classics for me which I re-play with MAME...

    Capcom Commando (1985)
    Capcom 1943: Battle of Midway (1987)
    Capcom Mercs (1990)
    Metal Slug on the Neo Geo (1996)

    But you can't beat the early arcade games like Galaga, Gyruss, Xevious, Out Run, Strider, etc.

    I still dig out Panzer General for a play and Combat Mission 2: a bridge too far gets played too. Another one would be Combat Mission, still the best of its type.

    Loved Outrun and loved Defender and Gorf. I'd love to have a bash at playing Elite again. Graphics were awful but my god the depth of gameplay was unreal for its time.
