Well, after Diablo 3 was such a disappointment, I started playing Roller Coaster Tycoon again and I must have put hundreds of hours into it this Summer.

Which old games do you still get a ton of enjoyment out of?


For me:

Roller Coaster Tycoon (1999)

Heroes of Might and Magic 3 (1999)

An ability in Starcraft II allows Terran players to "call down" multiple robotic workers called M.U.L.E.s.


I wondered where that term was from. Never heard of the game before though

My parents borrowed their friends Commodore 64 computer when I about 7 or 8. I played it for the first time then, I've been playing it on and off ever since. I use a Nintendo emulator on my computer now though.

But one of the great things about old games like that are that you could take your time, play offline and play as much or as little as you wanted.

Still one of my favourite gaming series is MYST. I have all the disks still kicking around, although the older games don't play well or at all with the new versions of Windows.

Or speaking of RCT (which I never really got into) in relation to MYST:

I've pretty much lost all my copies of these games, but 100% sure I'll still enjoy them.

SimCity 2000

Starcraft (the sequel was kinda disappointing)

Kingdom Heart

Black & White

Populous

The first Red Alert. (Can't believe I sold it to my friend for $5.00)

Pretty much all the N64 games. That system was beast.
