Greetings,

For those interested.. The Dig didn't work on XP but after a little Googling I downloaded the ScummVM and it's now working. And as ScummVM also supports some of the other 'old' games I have I'll be trying some of those again. I may even get to finish the ones I never did.

For those wanting a real blast from the past do a Google for 'Andy Noble' (or just add .co.uk ) and check out his games page :D

No one on here has mentioned, TimeSplitters. I'm disappointed. TimeSplitters 2 was my favourite game right until Future Perfect came out. Nothing beats the pure fun of the gameplay in the TimeSplitters games.

  • Burnout 3 (for the old Xbox)
  • Burnout Revenge (also for the old Xbox)

  • Battlefield 2
  • Battlefield Dessert Combat (expansion for the first BF version)

I do agree that Left 4 Dead is a great game, especially on the PC. I am much looking forward to the upcoming release of Left 4 Dead 2 (no matter what those boycotters say). ;)

One of the best games of all time in my opinion and I still re-play it now and again has to be the first Zelda game on the N64, the ocarina of time was just a great game. On the whole my time commitments limit me to quick fix games such as the Call of Duty series where I can nuke stuff lots :P On my PC the game that I find myself enjoying (dare I mention it on a message board) is World of Warcraft, again though time constraints have stopped me getting into it as much as I would have liked. I still love the classic console games as well, Alex the Kid on the Sega master system rules :)

I've discarded games a long time ago... No time to play.. I had Playstation 1 10 years ago and been playing Gran Turismo like mad... But since 2002 when I sold it I haven't played again in a regular basis.
In an unregular basis ( :lol: ) I've some NFSs and lately I have installed on my computer WSC Real '09 (I play once a week.. )

It requires the original textures, sound and music, however there are replacement textures and I guess one could do without the sound and music.

Yep. I am going to buy it ASAP it hit the stores.

L4D in hell of a new concept of a FPS game. I never see a better coop game before.

That's true, it has revolutionized the cooperative gaming experience. One thing I really enjoy about Left 4 Dead is that, if you're playing with friends, it feels like you are really going through an apocalyptic situation together, and you are relying on each other to keep one another safe from harm and to work as a team to make it to the rescue point. As the Left 4 Dead slogan says: "It's the zombie apocalypse. Bring friends." (which I thought was a very crafty and relevant slogan for the game). It shows how important teamwork is to survive in this game.

This game could even be used to promote synergy in workplaces worldwide. :P
