PC Collection - Partual

This is an almost complete list of all of the PC games I currently own. I started playing and even programming games in 1989 on my grandfathers Amstrad PC, when I was 6 years old, starting off with Digger, Space Invaders, Cats, Dam Busters and a whole bunch of other titles I can't quite remember. Then I moved onto Kings Quest, Monkey Island, Space Quest, Duke Nukem, Wolfenstien 3D, Crystal Caves and Commander Keen when he bought a 286.

I first started buying PC games in 1993 when my family bought a 386 with Flashback, Syndicate, IndyCar Racing, Cannon Fodder, Indiana Jones: Fate of Atlantis, X-Wing and Sensible Soccer. It is by far my largest collection by far both by numbers and physical space. I have cut it down a bit due to having to move a few times and hence sold a few, but I just can't part with the majority of them! Admittedly with the dawn of Steam, space shouldn't be much issue these days other than the odd special edition here and there. Oh well. :)

I've tried to arrange the top 10 or so to reflect my favourite titles (don't take too much notice of the position) but I'd prefer to have it alphabetical. I might get round to doing a top 20 PC title at some stage, we shall see....

Any list that has Baldur's Gate II as number 1, and Privateer anywhere on it, is a list I approve of.

Yeah, I've gotta agree with Kami on this one....Thumbs up for the Privateer addition--I think Origin was my favorite game company next to Bullfrog (which nets you another thumbs up for the Syndicate addition) from the 90s.  :D

Yeah I'm a big fan of Origin along with Bullfrog and Looking Glass Studios. It still impresses me the amount of detail that they put into the game worlds, both through the game itself and the game manuals. For example Crusader: No Remorse (Origin) had this full pull out newpaper poster thing with articles on current political issues in the game world, technology (including a reference to Shodan, the insane AI from System Shock) and almost Paul Verhoeven like adverts commenting on modern American culture. 
 
I think my next gaming revisit is going to be Planescape: Torment. Oh yes!

Bioforge! That takes me back. Isn't your first "weapon" in that game some dude's arm?

Yup!   "If you've come for the fork, you'll be sorely disappointed!" :D 
 
Excellent game that.
