so what old games do you still play

#1 Posted by mrhankey (695 posts) -

So i've asked before, but i was wondering if anyone could enlighten me....what games do people still play online that are somewhat old? I was thinking of installing say Call of Duty and it's UO expansion pack along with possibly Warcrafft 3, BF 1942, and then maybe some Half-Life/CS 1.6/ or DoD/ (and their various mods) Do you all think it's worth it and if so, are any of these games still popular on the online arena?

I still pop in KOTOR 1 or 2 every now and then, along with jade empire and half life 2.

I play Fallout 1 and 2, Megaman X - X5, Star Solider and a lot of others that I just can't think right now

  • Half-Life
  • Half-Life Opposing Force (Which I can't complete because it's the Steam version.)

I still play CoD 2 regularly. The pinnacle of WWII shooters; it's all been downhill since this lustrous title. What?

Lol noone read he said online games...

Call of Duty 1 probably has very few players now...
Warcraft 3 probably has a big community, but it's only worth trying if you're already really good (I tried it before and between cheaters and being unskilled it was not fun)
BF1942 probably doesn't have very many players anymore.
I wish more people had played Half Life 1 DM, even when it was brand new hardly anyone played it, and it was GREAT.
Tons of people still play the original CS.

I still play Warcraft 3 , Starcraft, and once the ladder resets Diablo 2. Yeah I like Blizzard stuff. Also, a lil UT2k4.

#11 Posted by Matthew (1911 posts) -

I know that Warcraft III and Counter Strike are pretty well played still.

I for one have been on a huge Diablo 2 run for the past 3 months or so.  I guess I just want to kill my mouse.  But the community is still alive and well for that game.

Great classics. I want to get back into Warcraft 3, and Diablo 1 or 2. However, games on my list are Jedi Knight 2: Outcast, some Counterstrike: Source, and a fancy lost-potential mod called Sourceforts. Oh and EVE too, but I'd rather just leave that one in its own category...

I still play SNES a bunch but PC wise because I'm on a netbook all I play are old games:

  • Unreal Tournament
  • Baldur's Gate
  • Diablo 2
  • Red Alert 2
  • AoE2
  • Deus Ex
  • Counter Strike 1.6

The Thief series its awesome feel like your invisible as long as you do not alert any guards or try to kill one but then they call for back up and get like 3 or 5 guards chasing after you.

Lol @ how many people reply to the title without reading the actual topic x)

I think Battlefield 2 still has a healthy community going, and some great mods, while the 1.5 patch should boost it a little, it's in public beta now.

Half-Life is also a good bet for modifications. While their popularity has obviously decreased you can probably always find a good match for the likes of Natural Selection and other such awesome projects.

I feel the same way. These young whippersnappers and their lack of understand of what old is. 

I often like to go and play my old adventure games, including the now ancient Space Quest, released back when I was but a boy.
#35 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Neverwinter Nights 2, KoTOR and Jade Empire.

Pretty much the only PC games I play are old.
#36 Posted by Black_Rose (7785 posts) -

#39 Posted by Sin4profit (2919 posts) -

As far as Online games i'm prettysure Battlefield 2 still has a decent community of players...it's still installed on my computer if that counts as "currently playing"

But as far as old games i just really like to play, i play the PC versions of the Worms games.

As far as old games that i bought and never started, and/or finished,...i don't wanna get into it.

#40 Edited by s3ank1m (126 posts) -

counter strike source, if you want really old id say zork and all the other infocom games that are text based

#41 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

I'm a sucker for the old adventure games.
So, yeah...
Grim Fandango.
Sanitarium.

#42 Posted by TheGremp (2064 posts) -

I've been playing Warcraft 3 like a madman lately.  I rarely play the base game, since people are crazy good, and I always get raped.  But I've gotten really good at Footmen Frenzy...  Anyone ever play that?

Also, DotA = fail.

i was playing half life 1 a week or two ago, still awesome.

#46 Posted by insomniac12 (3 posts) -

Resident Evil 2 + 3 (despite how long it took me to get graphics support set up correctly), was pretty friggen awesome to play on PC after I haven't even seen either games for a good 5-10 years now. Talk about nostalgia :D

#47 Posted by zityz (2360 posts) -

I usually crack out the SNES or GENESIS and play some games for a while. Last week I poped in Castlevania Dracula X and started playing that for a bit. Best thing about those old systems? No menus no advertisements nothing just pop the game in and play the game.

#48 Posted by Binman88 (3685 posts) -

Broken Sword 1 and 2. Usually leave enough time between each playthrough to keep them fresh.
