    X-Com: UFO Defense. Easily one of the best turn-based squad level tactics games ever made!!!

    Old LucasArts adventures like Loom and Monkey Island, even Rick Dangerous and Orc Attack! on my old Amiga 500 :cool:
    Very addictive that last one (and very, very hard) :mad:

    I've been playing heaps of SNES games using an emulator, mostly because I can't find any place to buy them...and I would in a heartbeat...oh there's such gems like Chrono Trigger, FFIII, Tales of Phantasia, Lufia 2...

    Apart from those, Baldurs Gate II and Tekken 3 would have to be the oldest games I play regularly.

    Heck...they're the only games I play regularly... :D

    The oldest games I play are some selected Amiga and NES games. Subspace and MTG are the only PC games I play these days. Not interested in new games. Although, I hope that Dragon Age will change that.

    Master of Magic. Yup, the predecessor of Master of Orion 1,2, and 3. Quite old, it is.

    A few months back i gave in and bought a SNES with Mario World. As soon as i got it i had to hunt down Turtles in Time, just cause. Unfortunatly the good (popularly good) games cost incredible amounts of money. I believe chrono-trigger goes for 1-2 hundred... Check them on Ebay, its insane.

    Excellent Game! Mircoprose made some of the best games around in the mid 1990s, including Darklands and X-Com.

    Panzer General 3D 'scorched Earth', turn based, an evergreen for me, and the only operational sort of strategy game I know.

    When it comes to emulation: Moon Patrol, Psychy 5, a tennis game and Phoenix.
    Yesterday I finished Full Throttle so I'll start Star Wars (the old one, from ILM, same time as Full throttle).

    Do you mean Rebel Assault II? Or perhaps Dark Forces.

    ILM doesn't make games.

    I'm about to play Prince of Persia 1 on my PS2...perhaps thats a new qualifier.

    Rebel Assault and the logo at the start of the game, 'before' George Lucas', is ILM.

    Ah, that explains it I think. ILM probably did the SFX for the movie parts (which is a lot of the game).
