Re: Windows 95/98 games you never get tired of?

My most favourite game though is C&C or RA1 although play this in XP now with the First Decade Patch. There was a C&C Gold which ran natively under Windows 9x and had higher resolution graphics and better unit/building portraits. As for RA, that game also had a separate Win9x executable on the disc …

I'm not really a fan of the Thief design and much prefer the less open world designs of Splinter Cell. I don't …

Re: What game are you playing now?

It's kind of surreal playing Splinter Cell on a retro Windows 2000 PC and then realizing that all the computers which you access in-game also use that OS. :D Anyway, the game is fun, but the first couple of missions feel very scripted, almost like an interactive movie. Especially the one on the Oil …

Re: what will you do when your last hardware fails?

On the other hand, with DOSBOX, one doesn't have to worry about monitor compatibility with older games. Personally, I love DOSBox and use it mainly for MT-32 and GUS emulation since getting that hardware at reasonable prices is an impossible task where I live. That said, issues with graphics …
