Then you should be pleased with this:

Hardeware:Shipbreakers, a "spiritual successor to Homeworld being developed by ex Relic founders (original Homeworld developers)

Gearbox buys Homeworld IP, then lends it to them in order to turn Hardware Shipbreakers from a spiritual successor into an actual legit Homeworld game.

So now we are getting a new Homeworld game from the original developers.
Amazing thanks for posting this!

Blast Chamber

Old PS1 multitap game. If they made it for PSN or Live it would make millions.

- F22 Total Air War (although i now play v2.0, released at Combat Sim Forum)
- Wizardry 8 (probably the best "old school" RPG I 've ever played).
- Sid Meier's Pirates! (1987 version under Amstrad emulation, not the pittyful remake of 2005).

Combat Mission, especially CMBB and CMAK.

TacOps (the wargame, not the FPS mod).

Half Life 1. Nothing beats it's MP5.

I did play Pirates! now and then, but found the IPAD version more fun.

I've played through Myth: The Fallen Lords and Myth II: Soulblighter so many times. I've also played WC3 and xpac quite a few times. Also, nothing beats a day long game in Civ3

System shock 2 its my goto October game
Those damn monkeys still freak me out. After playing that game, I hear the little fuckers everywhere, and keep seeing them out of the corner of my eye. Not a big deal, or it would not be, if I was actually still playing the game when I hear them.
LOL

I still play Redline on occasion :) And NO... not Redline Racing. Diffrent game.

Basically Maxmax meets Battlefield. Before there was a battlefield. More so open DM than actual objective. Maps are large. Vehicles and weapons are awesome.

Works with Windows 7/8 x64 just fine!

I remember that game, still have the big box it came in tucked in my closest somewhere.

Never did get to enjoy the multiplayer though, stuck on a crappy 28.8k connection back then and it sucked.

Awesome to see another Myth fan.

Has to be the IP I'd most like to see a new game to, but doubtful since Bungie pretty much abandoned it and I believe Take2 owns the IP now and they seem to have zero plans for it.

Hmmm, regularly play? None. Sadly I can't get past old graphics. Just how it is ...

Autoduel and Ultima 4 are currently the oldest I still play. Lots, and I mean lots, in my classic game archive, but I haven't loaded any up in years.

I wouldn't say there's any really old games I play frequently, but I occasionally go back to play from time to time One Must Fall 2097. That's 1994. You could say I go back to play STUNTS, from 1990, but I'll usually only play that for a few laps then not play it for another 5 years.

On console, I've been known to go back and replay Double Dragon 2, 1988.

So you're one of those "graphics > gameplay" gamers?
Personally I'm one of those "graphics are a part of gameplay" gamers. The whole "graphics > gameplay" or "gameplay > graphics" thing is a silly stance to take, it just comes down to whether you think graphics are integral to gameplay. If I thought graphics were more important than gameplay, I'd walk outside and look at the real world, it has pretty awesome resolution, realistic textures and crazy good quality tessellation.

FreeSpace 2. Loved the game. Currently installing FSO and a couple of mods.

Probably Unreal Tournament. Though I haven't played it in a while, I do go back to it frequently.

Recently though I played a little C&C Red Alert since it's free I had to check it out one more time.
