I was wondering if there are others on this forum that still play old/retro games. Obviously OFP is installed on every PC i have but a bit further back in time.
Recently I installed Thief I and II (created by looking glass studios, now defunct). And wow I was still amazed how atmospheric this game is still, most modern games don't seem to interest me as much. With some effort you can play this game under XP on new hardware see here and here. I still have an old rig with Win98. Anyway, when I started to play Thief again I lost all sense of time ... truly amazing.
Yesterday I completed Thief I Gold with some extra nice levels, now im busy with Thief II which I never really completed before.
Another one I like is Blood from Monolith (can also be played in Dosbox or XP/Vista with some help of programs, heres a nice fansite). It uses the same engine as Duke3d and Shadow Warrior but its style is much different. To bad they never released the source code.
Sometimes I still also play Transport Tycoon Deluxe using Open TTD
One of the first games I played were:
Supaplex - Look for Megaplex on google
And a whole lot of NES games that I rarely could complete due the difficulty :P
Most friends I know can't seem to look through the aged graphics and sound, but for me it doesn't matter how old the game is since the familiar look is good enough even after many years I still prolly be playing games like Doom. A good example how you can destroy a old game using modern graphics is the Doomsday engine for Doom games with 3d models.. I know people spend a lot of time creating new models but for me the sprites are far more detailed compared to these N64 like models with choppy animations..(heck I even thought that with my own first tree models I created for OFP) thats why crispy graphics doesn't mean anything.
Anyone else still play old games? Please share... ***
