Got a bit fed up with current games in recent weeks.

Mentioned in other thread(s) that I've replayed Half Life and the Half Life 2 series.

Got struck by a terrible urge yesterday, so I had to search out and aquire Freelancer.

Played it through back in the day when it first came out and fancied another bash.

Is that old tho, that it doesn't support widescreen resolutions without a bit of tweaking (which I learned about after a quick google) so all good now.

Feel free to chip in with old games you've gone back to recently.

I need to dig out the CDs for the old Crusader games (No Remorse etc) as a friend has managed to get them running very successfully on DOS Box it seems.

I have in my hand right now Shadow warrior, Duke Nukem 3d, and the BOOK of ID which contains a CD which has all of the old DOOMS on and Quake I. Also a game of a similar age, Blood.

I absolutely loved freelancer, completed it :P. You can get loads of online modifications that add far more star systems. If you want a proper freelancer-esque mmorpg, take a look at Black Prophecy which is in closed beta atm. The other one would be Jumpgate Evolution, but I've been waiting for beta for so long, I never think it is going to come :(.

how do you complete it? :-?

Thought you just did the 13 story missions, then buzz round blasting stuff until you got enough for an eagle, sabre or titan (whichever one floats your boat) loaded up with prototype class 10 guns, or nomad guns, and the best shields you can find then buzz round blasting stuff even more tanking damage like billy-o till you get bored.

After starting it the other day, am now at the buzzing round with class 10/nomad guns in a titan with adv. brigandine shields blasting stuff and tanking damage.

Not bored yet, but may have to get in with the outcasts so I can switch to a sabre to make better use of turrets.

Ah I meant complete the storyline :P. But the addons add many new missions, and things like Battlecruisers...

I tried to play Total Annihilation the other day, but couldn't get it to work at all.. It doesn't work on Win 7 so I used a VM to try and play it on Win 2k, but that wouldn't do it either...

Me and my 3 mates went through a little phase of playing Freelancer online a few months back, Discovery mod to be precise.

It's the closest i've come to playing an MMO and was quite enjoying it till some uber nerd penis eater in a ship 3 time more powerful than mine disrupted my trade lane and, IN COMPLETE ROLE PLAY PIRATE STYLE, gave me an ultimatum to relinquish my goods, pay a fee or die....

Didn't bother playing again after that.
I have a penis and a brain, but not enough blood to run both at the same time...
