Icon Old games

I am a big player 15 years old, and I wanted to know if anyone plays to Planescape Torment, Fallout 1/2, Dune 2000, and Baldur's gate 2. I finished all of them and I think they have the greatest storyline ever. My favorite one is Planescape because of the storyline and music.

I also wanted to know if anyone else think I'm strange, because when I ask people to what RPG they play, they answer WoW or Oblivion/Fallout 3! If I talk about the games above, everyone look at me strangely...

Okay I said that Fallout 3 sucked, but when you remember the previous Fallouts, it's obvious that Bethesda really f***** the license (give me back Frank Horrigan and the Advanced Superarmor!).

One of my brothers-in-law still plays Dune 2000.

He's onto House ordos at the moment (three houses, play the campaign through with all three).
I think he's also got a couple of other RTS games from the same period (I gave him dune).

Of course, when that computer gets replaced (more than likely given its history) I doubt they'll still run. Unless he gets XP onto the new box.

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?

fallout 2 was the very best thing ever. dune 2000 is not to my liking, but the very first dune2 kicked ass. ok that only single units could be selected sucked, but it was the first rts game ever and was done so very good.

anyways i think there is another forum section for computer games based topics..

There is no such thing as too many tanks.

I always loved Baldurs gate, but after playing it for several years I got bored of it, too easy

Dude, I still break out Ultima 3 from time to time...

Level me up! I, too, wish to storm the lands of mortals reaping what is truly mine...but for now, I am but a wee spot of energy...

Clicky!

When I get the urge for retro games, it's FIFA 98, Formula 1 '97, or 2000, or Player Manager 99. Abe's Oddysee and Exodus rank up there too. A friend plays Warzone 2100 occasionally.

Baldurs Gate 1 is where its at

BG2 is a great game, I loved it! Fallout 2 was a classic as well, considerably funnier than 3

I still like Age of Empires.

And if people ask me about RPGs, then Tekumel, Chill, Whispering Vault and Call of Cthulhu would be my answers.

AoE is awesome. AoE 2 was my favourite PC game ever, for about 3 years solid
