    Yep I bought the AoE bundle for £10... unfortunately I got bored of AoE3 really quickly so that was a waste of money, but at least there are still people playing AoE2 online last time I checked!
    Yeah AoE 2 is pretty good! I like the high resolution support and working multiplayer. The multiplayer part is still pretty buggy, but good enough to get games going most of the time.

    We have a group of friends on Facebook that just started playing AoE 2 every couple days, and it's just so much more fun when you know everyone in the game. Most of us have played the game decades ago, so there's a lot of nostalgia also. We can usually get close to 8 players, and some people had to wait on a few occasions because we had too many people.

    Try OpenRA. It's a new clone of Red Alert / C&C95 that has been rewritten from the ground up, new features that make it more modern and working multiplayer without really harming the original formula.

    I collect retro games and systems, and love playing through old favourites and stuff I missed out on at the time. Also been reliving a lot of PC classics since GOG launched and made them easier to run, though still own my original copies of a lot of them too. Don't focus on any particular series' or genres, so there's quite a wide range that I play. I am a big Sega fan though, so got quite a lot of stuff on their consoles.
    Dosbox is a lifesaver. I collect retro video games too.



    Just a picture of my super old CRT television that I use for older consoles and my Atari 2600 Woody with games.

    Yeah, I used DOSBox a lot before GOG. Still use it for a couple of favourites that haven't been re-released, but there were some games I had problems with and it's a lot easier to deal with those now that they've been optimised.
    Well any other game that won't run in DOSbox might run in a virtual machine with Windows 95 or MS-DOS installed since they typically don't need any fancy hardware acceleration and I think Virtualbox can emulate a Soundblaster 16 just fine.

    All mine are boxed away too, I mean that picture was taken in 2011. Again it's just space. It's an expensive and space consuming hobby!

    I definitely have to come to yours and play those

    Bomberman64 is also another classic I would love to play.

    As for ones I currently play, Age of Mythology has to be on there. Unreal Tournament 1999 is one of my favourite games ever, fast paced FPS which I could play all day.

    Age of Mythology is amazing. Still has a lot of dedicated players and there's the HD remake of it on Steam.

    Does anyone here ever still play classic games e.g. 10+ years old?

    Some games I play from time to time:

    Unreal Tournament (Original UT99 and 2004)
    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 + 2
    Deus Ex 1
    Freelancer
    Doom
    Half Life 1 + 2 / Mods
    Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
    Age of Empires 2
    Starcraft 1
    Warcraft 1, 2 and 3
    We would make great friends haha, I go through phases of playing Freelancer Discovery mod online, I guess in my desire to play a space sim whilst Star Citizen is being developed, though I may get my hands on Elite: Dangerous in the near future.

    I myself play:
    - Freelancer
    - Pokemon Yellow/Red/Blue
    - Ridge Racer Revolution
    - AoE 2
    - Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
    - Gran Turismo 2

    I play Rogue Galaxy quite a bit, it's a terrific game!

    I've also recently played Theme Park World 1 & 2, and a few of the SNES mario titles.

    The older C&C's...

    Great that the first 3 are now freeware also a rather cool free to download mod that combines both C&C and RA with a couple of new balancing units.

    Also use the same site for online gaming for it, they host their own servers and they do still have a few people knocking about on it.

    Does virtual console on the 3DS count? As I have a lot of those games downloaded.... Zelda, Metroid, Wario..etc.

    I saw someone posted Total Annihiliation earlier, I really would like to play that again. It actually came free with my Packard Bell PC back in the day haha. It also came with Fallout... and a fairly decent point and click game based on the Bladerunner film, anyone happen to remember that one? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blade_R...97_video_game)
