Most definitely, Syndicate is one of my all-time favorites.

I wish the old Bullfrog team were still around to give us great games. I also miss the Magic Carpet games, those were a blast and very different.

I wish I still had my media for Syndicate. I think I still have my stuff for Magic Carpet II. How are you running these? Straight XP or DOSbox/similar?

HUGE Bullfrog fan, hmmm wonder where my Populous stuff is at?

It runs on DOSbox like a champ. Not a single issue. Underdogs has it available (if you own it of course).

I wanna play some Tribes 2... not really old-school but shit that game was fun when it came out...

It was funny, I was playing the Tribes 1 Demo off fileplanet and was like "man this game is kinda fun" and I went to the store "Just Released Tribes 2" "oh... I'll buy that!" hah.

Didn't even know it existed... I played Tribes 2 a ridiculous amount too... wild-cat running people over, skiing (wasn't the best)... just an overall fun game imo... Looked pretty nice on high settings... (at the time)

Bah... I may install that, or Tribes Vengeance...

Actually, I play UT99 quite a bit - just played it last night. Other than that, I mess around with some older shooters from time to time (Blood, Shadow Warrior, Duke Nukem' 3d, Dark Forces II...) and also some old RPG's (Might & Magic VI, Fallout, Planescape, Arx Fatalis, Wizardry 8, Gothic...) There is nothing wrong with older games - a game with nice artwork will always look nice, no matter how many new DX versions are released...

I'm starting to play The Longest Journey. I didn't finish it before and I'm trying to get through it. I bought it off Steam yesterday because the steam version actually runs in Vista x64 for me.

The only 2 "old school" games I've been playing recently is MK2 and Gauntlet 2 on my PS3. Being able to play them both online is a lot of fun... I grew up with these 2 games... I can remember spending tons of tokens at Chucky Cheese trying to beat Gauntlet 2 :)

As for PC... If CS counts as a "old school" game... thats all I really play these days. :D

I'm still an avid Wolfenstein:Enemy Territory player. Not sure how "old school" that is considered though.

I played Oregon Trail on my Apple II+ last night...kidding.

Actually started up Crusader: No Remorse and Crusader: No Regreat last weekend on my oldest PC. Those games were flat out great.

I haven't been playing a ton of games lately, but I'm in the middle of:

Old PC:
Ultima VII: Serpent Isle
Ultima IX: Ascension (some people don't like it, and the voice acting is terrible, but it really is a fun game when you get it all working right)
System Shock I and II (this is a regular thing for me, I play both of them yearly)

Old Console:
Castlevania Symphony of the Night (PSX/Saturn (I have both versions))
Castlevania Rondo of Blood (TG16/PCEngine)

I also play any number of old console games via emulation, but I'm not in the middle of any particular one right now.

Still the most fun online. Dogfight in a P51, bail out and jump in a tank. Take a jeep for a nice ride. Got the juice to play the new BF's, but 42 is a blast!

Go back to 42 and die like good Germans! :cool:
