Default Favorite PC games.. (can be new or old.)


http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...18436?v=glance
this is BY FAR my favorite game for the PC. unfortunately I have been unable to play it for 2 years now. I am going to get a copy of windows 98 and install it on a virtual PC just so I can play it again. It'* bad enough that my windows XP theme IS that game. lol. My desktop background mimics it, My Computer, colors, etc. Wish they'd come out with a 3rd, but after almost 5 years since the 2nd release it'* not looking good. :( So, what are some of your favorite PC games?

If your computer is old enough, try out the demo. (windows 95/98 only unfortunately.:( )

I have fond memories of Unreal Tournament. It was the first time I had played a game when I didn't feel like the computer was holding me back. I keep a copy of it on my mac for when I feel like getting nastolgic...

"Guess the error". It'* really cool game, albeit not very flashy. You get this cool blue screen with some random numbers and letters on it. You gotta try and translate that into something you can fix....

It'* fun, you gotta try it!!

there was a software company called Origin that put out a world war one flying game called Wings of Glory back in the windows 3.1 days when you had to exit to DOS to play anything worthwhile. it is my all-time favorite game. the action was all air to air combat as the war progressed, but you were stationed at an air base that was interactive between missions. there were many colorful characters and you could talk to all of them to make the story line unfold. it was very immersive for a kid who was in middle school. you got newer planes as the months passed, and grew closer to your british buddy Charles. there was even a psuedo "love interest" in the form of a french girl from a nearby village, but (in a shocking twist, i might add) she ended up being a spy for the germans and had to be executed by a firing squad. the game completely fascinated me with aviation history, and as a result i read countless books about world war one aircraft and pilots. it'* a very interesting time in history. but anyway, to end this ramble-fest, i honestly almost cried when the game ended. i SO did not want it to be over. if anyone knows a way to run an old DOS-based game in windows XP, i will be forever grateful. adieu!

yep. origin WAS a great company! My favorite game (mentioned in 1st post) was first create by origin. (the original game was.) The second was started by Origin then taken over by Looking Glass (also now extinct.) both of these companies were great! It is really too bad that they're both gone now. As for MS-DOS the only way to play these games is to install MS-DOS again. Good Luck finding it.
