Operation Flashpoint ,I don't like this game at all, and I've never gotten far in it, since it's too realistic to be fun, but it was massively popular with some gamers. Fun fact, in the first version(s) of the game you are basically invisible if you keep crawling. You can finish some very tough …

For adventures check out Runaway: A Road Adventure (2001). It's a Monkeyesque(!?) style game with really nice graphics. Only problem it has a few pixel hunting problems that'll drive you mad, but other than that, a solid game.

I mean, I realize this upgrade model is nothing new, but at least in other OSes they have version numbers and you can actually stick with an older version Yeah, look at OS X for example. Apple has been selling the same OS (with minor tweaks) for the past 20 years and no one has any complaints about …

Re: On "time-accuracy," and whether it's worth it.

in Milliways
One more thing came to mind. To me period correctness doesn't mean I'm limited to the average HW of the time or what I could've bought then. If something was available (even with a ridiculous price) then it's fair game. Now you can find these high valued items for pennies, or even if they are …
