    MVP Baseball 2005. Last and best baseball game made by EA. Controls are the best. Timing and aiming that bat are what makes it still fun to this day!

    ^ you play all of those games more than once per every few months since release?

    I'm guessing 99% of the folks in this thread didn't read the OP

    Regularly play?

    Console: The Legend of Zelda.
    PC: Star Control.

    I had consoles way before I could afford a computer, so I grew up on the NES :D

    Metroid and Castlevania on the NES (メトロイド and 悪魔城ドラキュラ on the FDS), both released in 1986. I do a yearly run of both those and their SNES sequels Super Metroid and Super Castlevania IV, though I'm much better at Metroid than Castlevania. :/

    Tony LaRussa Baseball 2 circa 1993 via Dosbox. Play it at least once a week. Hitting homers as Mike Trout vs the best pitchers of 1993 is fun! :D

    I suspect as much. On a blog I used to visit they have a recurring post about quote of the week. And each week people post their nominations in the comments, and next week they select the three most popular ones. And each time the blog post contains the warning "These are last weeks favorites, don't nominate these this week as they're obsolete" Still every week there is at least one stupid motherfucker who will choose one from that three.

    Archon and M.U.L.E. on the C64. (I have a stack of real C64s in my basement, but I play on VICE these days. Just so much easier...) Especially when I've been drinking which is usually when my friends and I decide we need to play these games.

    I play Veil of Darkness, Al Qadim, Ultimas, Bloodnet, etc. in DOSBox from time to time. (among others of course) I do love a good DOS era game.

    I would say this but I finally quit a few years back because of the massive cheating/bots.

    Once they re-release it on Battle.net, I'm all over it :D

    That game almost redeemed Ion Storm because of Daikatana.

    Now I'm tempted to replay it....

    For me it's WoW. I took a long while off, almost two years, and now back with the pre expansion patch, and liking the changes so far. Will probably just stick around a little bit, get to level 110, try the Raid, and then unsub

    I try to not play anything too old, but this one keeps coming back. I have left it paused for an hour at a time here and there, but I play too much. To make it seem even sadder, it's always single player.

    I've got that sitting in my GOG account, and still have never played it. I don't know why either. Planning to give it a play sometime though. Just too much stuff coming out in the next month or so, so it will probably have to wait until winter...

    Loved that game, played it through twice but sadly it will not install on anything greater then XP, I tried.
    Still have the CD case, the publisher went under.

    As for oldest game, it's been ages but I have a EA best of ported to PC and played Bard's tale and Wasteland.
    Prior I played both games on a C64

    Nothing is wrong with single player, that's what! I love a good co-op game, a nice tipsy Street Fighter match in the living room, or a nice FFA Quake match on a LAN or the like, but 90%+ of what I play is single player. I like to drop myself into another world, and tune out other humans when I play.

    Nice! Big fan here too. I haven't played the NES era ones in a while. The last one I played was Chi no Rondo I think. I could use a dose again soon.

    Sadly some games which are that old just are no longer compatible, hell the game options were limited to basic sound, small screen and I think voodoo 3 for GPU!.
    I'd love to see classic games re-coded and released all on one DVD, like a best of the classic games or something.

    The graphics were well ahead of their time, I bet at full 1080P they might still look damn good.

    Knight, barbarian and dwarf I went through them all, the amazon was weak and I died to many times on the 1st level so I gave up on that character. :hungover:

    For me, it's L4D2 and Unreal Tournament 2004. I play each every couple of weeks and always have them installed on my computer.

    Diablo2 until 2 weeks ago. I discovered Path of Exile and it is so much like D2 that I don't think I'll ever load up D2 again.
