Ah, Tombstone. One of the hardest yet best levels. Really like the design, fights and atmosphere in that one.

I think Plutonia had nearly flawless levels which were very fun to play all the way through. The only ones that were kinda a letdown were the last ones, in particular level 29, which while it is well designed the fights aren't especially interesting. I think they should have put some big bad guys running around in the streets.

I don't like RTSs and RPGs very much because they ask me to be too tactic (I make an exception only for Final Fantasy), what I like more are classic games, racing simulators, platformers, FPSs and games from other consoles.

My really favourite games are the GTA series, rFactor, Doom, Duke Nukem, the Need for Speed series (except Carbon, Most Wanted and things like those), the good old Half-Life, Commander Keen and an awesome game called Re-Volt...

Forse ti riferisci---- oops, You may be referring to modern RTS games. I don't like those either.

Really depends on my mood.

(I'm trying to think of new"ish" and not platformers cause its quite obvious I would like other platformers besides ck)

A while ago I've bought Half-Life (with all expansions) and took the time to beat all of them.
I played some Duke3d again a few years ago with HRP (eduke).
A very recent game is Minecraft.
I've also played Trackmania for a while.

Those are the games I can think of, sometimes I don't play games for months. but if I play, I try to beat it as fast as possible before I lose interest in the game again.

Keen is the only game that I play.

I like some others. But I don't play any others. I watch them on youtube a little bit, and that's enough.

Though if you prefer a fast-paced gameplay such as in TW, you may find them boring (excluding RA2,YR,Generals and ZH), and for a reason :dead

Hm, I played age of empires two for a long long time. Damn that game was addicting - especially online.

You have SimCity 2000 for DOS? I've only ever seen it for Windows... do you still have the cool animation at the beginning?

Maybe it was for Windows? I haven't played it in a while, but I always thought it was for DOS.

SimCity2000 was on DOS, then they re-released on Windows with a few bells and whistles, like a building designer.

Scarlet, I know what you mean, its seriously one of my most favorite game series.

Ceilick, bringing up Rise of Legends reminded me of Rise of Nations.

Nope. I play Tiberium Wars pretty much strictly for the graphical experience (12 scrin tripods blasting the crap out of everything as they walk around). If the graphic quality is comparably cool, I'd try the other games in the series.

I played some Rise of Nations, but it never really grabbed me. I always felt like I didn't know what i was doing in battles and my units were better off without me. Launching nukes and hearing the nuke alarm every few minutes towards the end of big games was fun though.

I've played and liked Lemmings, King's Quest VI, Spelunky, Trilby's Notes, Ben Jordan: Paranormal Investigator, Mechwarrior 3, Crawl Stone Soup, and a bunch of other games that aren't coming off the top of my head. Would like to expand my gaming horizons once I have the time and the freedom.
