Incredibly comfy image.


was considering posting this, glad i checked first and that someone else did. it is easy to mod in content as well

Play the original in dosbox, not the shite remake.



Isn't it crazy how alienating the modern internet is?

If you ever wanted to feel alone and like you're staring into an empty void, just read internet comments and the people will make you feel the abyss. It's like they don't even exist as people…

32 yo here. We got a computer at home at about 95, 96 I think. Here some of the games I remember playing over and over again, in no particular order.

Fallout 2 - The very first rpg I've ever played. The very first post-apoc themed game I've ever played. Everything was so new and exciting, the music, the graphics, the everything. Did I mention I got this game on a blind purchase? We actually bought games those days without knowing NOTHING about them other than the cover. Good times.

Quake - I couldn't play this game more than 30 minutes at a time because it made me so anxious and scared. I always tried to play as a stealth game back then because I didn't want the monsters to realize I was there. Of course it enver worked. Playing this was to terryfing I would never play past noon. You fucking crazy playing a horror like this at night No chance.

Ultima Online - People always talk about WoW. However this right here was my drug for 7 years. Pretty much my entire teenage years all I did was playing UO and sleeping pretty much. First online game I've ever played, first mmo and pretty the only one. After UO there's just nothing left for me as far as mmos go. What chance something cartoony like WoW had anyway? No thanks.

File: 1567874586996-2.png (390.39 KB, 640x480, 4:3, 4-update4_4.png) ImgOps iqdb

Duke Nuken - A kid at school introduced me to this. He said was the coolest game ever. It turned out it was pretty good indeed. There were even naked succubi in it you would believe. I never got past the first stages for some reason, I can't remember now.

Age of Empires II - This is the game I played after school to relax. I would put everything on the easiest settings and just build walls around an area and create a rural utopia where everybody is happy and soldiers never need to go die in some god forgotten part of the map.

Jagged Alliance 2 - The one I played the least in this list. Very charming and captivating game. I could never get very far in it because I kept reloading every time one of my mercs got killed. I just liked those guys too much to let them get blown away in the field. To this day I've never seen the ending to this game.

Simcity 2000 - The comfy simulator. I've done pretty much every possible run in this game. The relaxed rural society, the megametropolis, the subway addicted city, you name it.

XCom Apocalypse - The first game I ever talked about it online. The people older than me and long time fans of the series would make fun of me for liking Apocalypse over the previous entries in the series. What can I do, it was my very first X-Com. I didn't even know it was a series when I first played it. To this day it's still my favorite. I also suck at it I might add.

Counter Strike 1.5 - The first and only regular job I had in my life was working at a cyber cafe, back when these existed on pretty much every corner. All I did was playing games there and ate junk food. I didn't quite like Counter-Strike but EVERYBODY would play this. And I mean EVERYBODY would play it. Not only that but they would ONLY play CS. So I ended up playing a lot as well. It's funny how I remember wanting to play something else but now I look back and feel a huge nostalgia kick for the old Counter Strike. Back in those days everybody was complaining how fucking awful CS had become with the recent 1.6 release. Cool times.

>XCom Apocalypse
This was the first game I ever downloaded. At that time, i could hardly believe an entire game could be DL'd to a computer, but it was possible.
Serious Sam: The Second Encounter was probably the FPS of my childhood and early teens. I'd have to go back in time like you did but so far this is the first thing that pops up.



Ports of Call


Alpha Centauri


File: 1567880475395.jpg (17.64 KB, 284x351, 284:351, Freespace1box.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Ultimate nostalgia game for me. I remember that my old Dell windows 98 machine came with a demo of it that I played through at least a dozen times before finally getting the full game for birthday.


With mouse and keyboard I might add. Never got a joystick


File: 1567881427501.png (58.16 KB, 640x480, 4:3, TimeCommando_MSDOS_13.png) ImgOps iqdb

Hell yes, I played the demo for Time Commando a lot. It would just stop working on the wild west stage and I didn't understand why at the time.

I love that game so much.

Also Gothic 1 and 2



Jagged Alliance 2: Never played it before, such a great game.

There goes my weekend.


File: 1567923597149.jpg (144.01 KB, 710x533, 710:533, commandos.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Commandos 2


You know I played up until the last mission and then dropped it, some day I'll finish it. It's really great although a bit too easy.


Command and Conquer
Red Alert

Get OpenRA



Ion Fury
Why not AMID EVIL or/and DUSK instead of that?



It's a matter of taste, I think all three are great.




hedon is cool, based on a doom engine i think, it's like a medieval fantasy themed oldschool shooter


Close Combat


yeah, actually you're right. I'd have loved Ion Fury but the man character is female so, it's a no from me



> character is female so, it's a no from me

Does it really matter? Nevertheless, it runs on the Eduke32 engine, and mods will surface sooner or later. If you are lucky there might be a male-player-character mod in the future.


It doesn't really idk, I just don't like it when it's a succubus who goes guns blazing, funny enough I played Mirror's Edge and I really liked it, finished it twice but as i said
As for the mods hopefully, but I'm not really sure about the male main character thing because of the voice acting stuff.

King of Fighters 98


File: 1578226964634.jpg (127.87 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, grigori.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Dragon's Dogma is great

The character's one liners aren't even funny which for me, is half of the appeal for those kind of games.


I loved Spellforce. I played it a lot, usually I would make forts and have my characters live there and protect the town from monsters that would invade. It wasn't how you were supposed to play but that's how I had fun with the game


in theory, shouldn't all games on this board be 30+ games?


>Brutal Doom
Christ, you're pathetic.

Garou: Mark of Wolves got an update with new netcode.

I will never get tired of this game



I spent enormous amount of time playing this online or in single player.


Diablo 1 had quests cut or simplified for release.


i think that video belongs in the interesting video game videos thread

Rebalancing an old game for fun..


How are these boomer games?


my guess for why the wiz posted kenshi:
single player
can pause the game and control time
real time strategy squad/god game
tactical thinking is rewarded
old fashioned user interface

the thread does say "some new shit worthy of attention. None of that zoomer shit." and it doesn't seem like zoomer shit


What do you mean by boomer games? Gamer boomer have played in their youth or games a boomer could play and enjoy? If it's the latter I definitely see why an older guy would enjoy Kenshi, not sure about Soma.

See OP; 30+ year old games are his definition of boomer.
