Personally, I'm more of a simulator-type person. Currently my game of choice is Simcity 4 - a vast improvement over simcity 3 if only for the plugins system. Unfortunately, most games I liked have gone 3d, with more emphasis on flashy graphics than actual gameplay - civilization 4 and rollercoaster tycoon 3 being prime examples :(

crikey THAT is so true :)

if it's not 3D, then promoters are just not interested!! the gameplay of the "original games" has been watered down - that is for sure :x

:| doesn't seem to be any way out it - shame

Abomination! Red Alert is by far the best C&C game. :P

Currently my games of choice are Supreme Commander, Company of Heros, Dawn of War, Unreal Tournament ('99)

Supreme Command is just epic on 8 player LAN <3 and nothing bests UT99 for FPS game play :mrgreen:

I haven't tried that yet. C&C generals is fun.. so I can totally see there other generations allot better.
I seriously need to try out some new games.. :P

Most of my favorite games are from the Super Nintendo days :D
Earthbound, Final Fantasy III, LoZ: A Link To The Past...
And no one will ever come up with crazy original games like Super Mario again, those are one of a kind :P

I've had that feeling since around the time N64 came out :( Games used to take long to beat and have amazing back-stories, now they spend too most of their time on graphics as you said.

RA1 is still my personal favorite, Generals just didn't give that nostalgic "feeling" of the C&C series.

I hope you don't mind me saying, but if you ever get UT3 you should definitely check out this mod called "Renegade X" since you seem to be a fellow fan of C&C 8-)

I've always liked Minesweeper and Space Cadet Pinball :lol:

AS I was reading this I was going to say RCT3 !! ..lol Yeah RCT3 is terrible, very un-realistic and very Sim like..
It reminds me of Sim theme park.

well i thing one of my favorites is the free to download version of return to castle wolfenstein.
the free version is the multiplayer one called RTCW enemy territory.

just a very good multiplayer community, and lots of servers to play on. also it gives some freedom for modifications on servers that makes playing on different servers very nice to do :)
