i was just thinking that i have Dark Forces, Quake, Quake 2, Jedi Knight, and other (relatively) old games on my computer and i still play them every once in awhile (certainly not as much as more recent games). so what about you guys? btw, i basically on play FPS.
edit: i basically only play popular FPS, so dont complain if your favorite isnt on there :p. and by relatively old, im talking about 5 or more years ago.

I play both DF and JK still. You should have made it a multiple choice poll, cause I still play both of those, along with MotS (just was this afternoon)

It's been a while since I played Dark Forces. I have it on Playstation. Come to think of it, it's been a while since I played anything on playstation. Or a console, for that matter.....

It'll give you a headache to play if you haven't in such a long time. I suggest you get the DF mod for JO. Hope you have a buddy with a cable modem and CD burner, cause the demo alone is enough on a 56k. (Thank God I had the cable by then!!!)

well Katarn, there is a few-year gap between DF and JK and i thought that more people would probably still play JK than DF and stuff like that, so i made them separate items. same with Q and Q2.

Well, I play them both still. So I will not vote. I think I play MotS most often. It's alot harder than DF, JK, or JO, and takes a while to beat...

Sometimes a person wants to play a FPS with a story line, thus, you have to break out the old school FPS's :p

I have a P133 box dedicated to old DOS and early Windows games. Doom 1 & 2 dominate most of it's existence, though I do use it on occasion for StarCraft if the boys are over to LAN... There's this one guy that doesn't have his own box, but he's still fun to have around, so we let him join in and play when one of us wants a break, and in exchange, he brings a couple extra 12-packs. Nothing beats CS and SC (Counter-Strike and StarCraft) while piss-ass loaded.

Hmmm...I haven't played some of the oldies for a little while...been too busy trying to play catch-up with some of the newer games. Most recently finished Unreal 2. Now I'm trying to finish NOLF 2 (got through half way before my system crashed last time).

But yes...I do still play the older games - especially those for which you can get engine revamps, like Doom, Hexen, Heretic, Quake, etc. But basically I try not to let any of my games just sit on the shelf gathering dust...so I try and fit some of them in between playing the newer titles. I'll still continue to play Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, Half-Life, Unreal, Thief (currently also playing that - I was nearly at the end when my system crashed last time), and others. I even fired up Wolfenstein 3D late last year...but couldn't get the sound to work with it, so I gave up on it.

glad to see it, Wes. i know it definitely wasnt as popular as DF and Wolf3D and stuff, but it was a fun game nonetheless, its been too long since ive played it.
