Your alltime favourites
I suppose this board is not only for new games, so what are your favourite games from the very past (and I mean really past, like DOS and max W95 :D ) ? Besides all the great grafic effects that are possible today, a lot of games suffer from really flat stories, since they waste all their money on grafic and stuff and then when the money get's short they need to rush out the game asap. Very few companies are capable of doing good stories today, example Jowood and Blizzard.

But back to topic, which games do you always remember with a happy smile on your face ? For me, it's always Imperium Galactica 1 and
Missionforce Cyberstorm. Thanks to dosbox I'm able to play my beloved IG1 (with it's great movies) again, unfortunately I can't get Cyberstorm to run in XP, not matter what I do. If anyone has a hint, I'd be glad for it :)

And btw, If I wouldn't have so little time, with all the cool looking ships from IG1 you could create an excellent new Space-Sim game using the FSO engine :)

What are yours best memories ?

Beating Mario 64 for the first time.... I forget how old I was. In any case it was the......... third game I'd beaten by that point. (First was Super Mario Bros, at the age of 5.)

Re: Your alltime favourites
These are the games I spent years with and/or keep going back to despite having played through them at least 10 times:

Lemmings (1992, mac version)
Infotron (1993, another mac game)
Fate of Atlantis (1994, mac version)
C&C (1995)
Mission Critical (1995)
Descent 2 (1996)
FS2 (1999)
Unreal Tournament (1999)
Deus Ex (2000)

This is not taking mods and TCs into account, in which case C&C:RA makes it in there too.

Medal of Honor (the whole series)
FS2
C&C: Red Alert 2
Homeworld
Myst/Riven/Exile
Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time (I don't think I'll ever forget this little jewel--it's one of the few adventure games outside of the Myst series that I actually enjoyed)
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Good one, this was an excellent designed game and the birth or RTS Games.

Bollocks :). The birth of RTS games was Dune 2: The Battle for Arakis.

It was indeed. In many ways C&C was simply Dune 2 with different unit names.

Actually try Herzog Zwei.

Also it was "Dune II: Battle For Arrakis" I have a huuuge poster on my wall circa 1991 (?) which has it on.

Haven't got em yet. That, and Medal of Honor and various other games have taken over my life at the moment.

Re: Your alltime favourites
Homeworld2. Not the greatest game in the world, but there are just so many mods it's easily the game i've played the most in the past few years. That, and the original Battlefield 1942, the very first game I ever got into online.

Thanks to dosbox I'm able to play my beloved IG1 (with it's great movies) again, unfortunately I can't get Cyberstorm to run in XP, not matter what I do. If anyone has a hint, I'd be glad for it :)

Try this, I can't guarantee it'll work but it's worth a shot.  Right click it's icon, click Properties, click Compatibility tab, check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box, and pick Windows 95.  That might do it.  I emphasize might.
