BLAST from the past

Typical Sunday errands, I was out fixing crap all day.  When I was finished with the yard work, I decided to get to something I've been putting off for years.  Since the last move, I haven't gotten all of my computer gaming accessories in order and organized.  The games, manuals, and unnecessary boxes were scattered around the office and it used to take a long ass time to find the disc of the game I wanted to play or the book if I did find the game.  Most of the time actually, I settled for an endless search for old games that I could never find.  The only game that I kept out and close to me was, in fact, Baldur's Gate 2...which I am now replaying...again. 
 
But lets get to the point of all of this.  Searching the storage areas, the closets, the rubbermaids, I found my old Sidewinder 2 and a copy of Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance .  For the hell of it, I reinstalled both of them.  And oh, dear god.  It's on.   It's like finding an old friend hidden in your closet. 
 

Time to blow some shit up.

Same thing happened to me recently. Old adventure games, some pretty damn obscure ones. (<-Wow, according to GB this is a collectors item? o_O)
Magazines are a pretty big thing too, I found a whole bunch and spent half-a-day rereading old GameFan magazines.

Yeah, Gog.com is fantastic.  They are perfect for those of us who prefer computer games but don't have the hardware powerful enough to play anything modern.  
 
The older games were much better anyway.

Fuuuuuuuccck. ArbitraryWater should really handle this comment, since he's the guy who keeps GOG in business.

Me and my brother had a similar time: I forgot I had drunkly bought Perfect dark for XLBA a year ago. So last night looking thru my games list he found it and a wave of nostalgia came over us of nights well spent with the N64. While we have since moved on to more "modern" games, its still always great to go back and throw down on some classics.

Now if I can only find my copy of Mario Kart 64.....
