Been catching up on older single player rpgs I’ve missed due to having a substandard pc at the time.
Currently playing “Drakensang – The Dark Eye” and Half Life e2.
Also, I’m probably the only person on earth that’s never played Skyrim so really looking forward to starting it.
NES: TMNT 1-3, Little Nemo, Fester's Quest, Double Dragon 1-3, contra
SNES: TMNT: Time, Super Contra, Double Dragon, Zelda A link to The Past, Star Fox
Below is where we can disscuss and come up with new ideas for Sandparks!

Haha, it used to be the two of us then, but I played it last month

Yeah I return to that one usually once or twice a year.....My niece really loves it and has beat it a couple of times....I still have never beat it.

Same. I got into a little D&D kick and started playing ToEE, NWN2 to include Storm of Zehir, and some Icewind Dale 2. I tried Baldur's Gate: Enhance Edition but after a while I remembered why I don't like the pre 3.5 rule set.

Originally posted by AlBQuirky Originally posted by Sovrath I've just started planescape (never played it before) and also a bit of Baldur's Gate. I keep trying to get into Daggerfall but I really hate how you have to use the mouse for combat (swing your sword with the mouse).
OT: Right now, I'm not doing much gaming as I am in the middle of building a new PC. Should have my case fans this week and all will be good to go I am just playing short Board Games right now like Rail Empires: Iron Dragon or Catan: The Computer Game. Puerto Rico and San Juan are other good computerized board games I start up quite a bit lately.
I went on a buying spree earlier this month at GOG.com (Good Old Games) and have a good list of games that I will be getting into shortly. I even picked up Wizardry 6,7,8 from them, thanks to Loktofeit
I got Planescape: Torment when it released way back when and never got into it. Never made it out of the starting City This is another purchase I made at GOG and look forward to getting into.
yeah I have arx fatalis as well but haven't really gotten out of the starter/tutorial area. I really should buckle down and see if there is more there for me to like.
I have mixed reaction to the mouse/runes thing because it takes several tries for me to get the shape to activate.
Achaea most definitely my fav. oldschool MMO game, still populated as heck
I also downloaded C&C Red Alert for kicks but its not as fun as I thought it would be
Originally posted by MyBoot Vanguard saga of hero's It's only 5-6 years old but it's a very old play style.
Vanguards actually 6-7 years old, i've been playing since beta alongside other mmo's.
Anyway, i've been playing a lot of Gothic 2 Night Of The Raven, best single player RPG ever made IMO.
I like to play Age of Empires II from time to time. This is with the community addition Forgotten Empires included. Which adds better AI and lets you play at modern widescreen desktop resolutions.
EDIT : Forgot to add Sim City 4, which I installed again after I uninstalled the ridiculously bad new Sim City.
Originally posted by TheocritusThe problem I have with most of my old school games is they are dos based and I dont have a PC that runs dos anymore.....I've tried dos box but it doesn't work worth a crap with the games I have tried on it anyway.....I'd love to dust off the Master of Magic and Daggerfall CDs but they just dont run on my PC.
Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.- FARGIN_WAR

It took me awhile to get "adequate" with the runes via mouse. Even after playing for hours, it is rare for me to get it right the first or second time. I don't use spells in combat because of this, though. It does have 3 nice "spell ready" slots that you can "pre-cast" and let loose when needed with a keystroke.
Arx Fatalis is not the greatest game in the world, but I have fun when I load it up. You slowly get to learn who you are in the game world and why you're there.
Many oldie's can be played if your willing to fork some low budget 2-6$ for games from GOG.COM no need for dosbox and ready for win-7-8.
Its cheap and all DRM free on GOG.COM.
Some awesome oldie games for sale.
I would be playing ffX if my ps3 slim was backwards compatable , stupid sony for taking away all my ps2 games, now just collecting dust, since I gave my ps2 away long time ago
Kinda ironic atm im playing vanguard which is ran by SOE, but it has plenty of quest for me to do while I wait for ffxiv arr.
Originally posted by Theocritus I saw a few of the games on GoG.com also...How do they take dos based games and make them for windows7,8,etc?
They use DosBox.
Check into frontends for it.
I like playijng Pool of radiance D&D classic or temple of elemental evil .
Wiz8 is a great go to game aswell.

Pool of Radiance is one I need to get back on. There's so many classics, so little time.
Would OpenTTD count as an oldschool game? If so then that's what I'm playing.
It's quite relaxing to sit back and build elaborate, yet organized railroads in this game. Well, I guess that's why most play it!
