I'm a big fan of old school PC games. Used to play a ton of Quake, AoE, Starcraft and Diablo back in my young age (around 13 or 14. I'm 18 now lol)

Any games you'd recommend for me/other people to play? Post it in here!
Anything you need help with in an oldschool game? ask away!

I'll start with a question. Does anyone know how to run compatibility mode for Max Payne 1? I've tried right clicking and going into properties, but there's no compatibility tab for it Crying or Very sad

I seriously love all of the management games of the mid/late 90s, more specifically Dungeon Keeper, Theme Hospital, Theme Park, SimCity 2000
It's a real shame that the likes of Rollercoaster Tycoon and Dungeon Keeper have been destroyed by mobile games (Thanks EA!)

I still like to play around with some original Half-Life mods here and there (Action Half-Life is a long-time favorite).
Freelancer is a quality space sim. The Descent games are also pretty fun.
I second Beyond Good & Evil though. It's a great game.

Shovel Knight is an excellent new game with that old school platforming feel/look.
Same goes for Assault Android Cactus (In early access).

I really liked things like Wolfenstein (we had Christmas edition!) and Duke Nukem 3D (I loved his jokes). But I was more into games like Commander Keen and Mario Smile. Those were great.
And of course Resident Evil.

If you like RTS, I'd suggest the Dungeon Keeper games. The original ones, not the horrible new mobile app.

I have some nice warm fuzzies towards System Shock II, and certainly recommend it to anyone who likes FPS games with RP elements.

Many older games seem to be licensed as downloads through www.gog.com and that includes the amazing Planescape:Torment.
