Are any of you guys digging out old games and forcing them to run on new hardware?

I went through an old box of software and dug out Homeworld 2 for the pc.
I remember it was quite demanding on my pc at the time but playing these old games again with hardcore pc tech is great fun.
I guess we can see the games now as they were intended back then.
Homeworld was a great series. Very cinematic and involving.

Are you guys replaying anything at the moment?

I still play Diablo 2 every year, and Final Fantasy 7 gets a full play through every year.

Was that the one with the big lad that had a machine gun on his arm? And you could name each character as you met them??
I played that one years ago on the Playstation one and nearly lost my job XD
Great game.

None of the other final fantasy games matched 7 for me, the story line was spot on. Did anyone play any of the Broken Sword games, 1 and 2 were awesome, I have replayed them before and will do again.

Yes!

I have a PS2 emulator as my PS3 isn't one of the ones that have backwards compatibility, so Final Fantasy X has been played through a few times on the emulator. Terrific game! Can't wait for the release of XIII for PS3 either. Want to echo the call for FFVII as well, classic. Also play Red Alert.

On the PC, I still play the ever magnificent Transport Tycoon and Rollercoaster Tycoon games, endless enjoyment.

I only had the original Rollercoaster Tycoon game until a couple of months ago, and got number two for a quid XD

Rarely played it due to FM, Fifa and the like but I'll play it once I get bored (A)

I always thought that despite being pokemon, if the original game (blue or red) was developed for a console it could be a great game. Surprised it has never been done.

Star wars Knights of the old republic I have played to death. Someone mentioned the Broken Sword series how cool and funny they were.

I hardly play old games, too busy with the latest games to spend too much time living it up in nostalgia land. But if I do decide to play something then it's either Chrono Trigger, Sonic I, II, & III, Streets of Rage (Two player co-op at it's finest), Pokemon, or some of my PS2 games (Gitaroo Man, MGS, ICO, SotC etc..)

I remember being drunk once at a friends flat, and he started playing Broken Sword. We must of spent an age just clicking on a spanner (or something) and showing it too people.

"Hey, check out my tool."
"Did I show you my tool?"

I'm such a creep.
