Some of those titles bring back warm fuzzy memories.

The lists are missing a few I spend a great deal of time on, Red Storm Rising and AH64.

And of course TSR's gold box series

On my dad's old Amiga 1200 - Frontier, Elite II

I wasn't even born when that was a new game...... Loved it so much my dad set up the Amiga on the TV in my room when I was about 12

I lost entire weekends playing 'Frontier'

 

Also enjoyed 'Rainbow Islands', 'Cannon Fodder', 'Cannon Fodder 2',  'Sensible World of Soccer', 'Settlers' and 'Syndicate' on that old Amiga (I still have it, and it still works BTW)

All this nostalgia...
Total Annihilation is probably my favourite game of all time (curious as to why escalation mod is so popular, I'm usually using TAUCP).
Dungeon Keeper is always fun, or Theme Hospital... times before EA gutted bullfrog... god damn yousssss EA
Rollcage is nice if you're looking to set a few laps or try to beat your lowest times.

Audio surf if you're looking for a different kind of ride.

Unreal is my go to when I want an old first person shooter, since CS;S is dead :(

One of the very best games on the Amiga.

 

 

Here is one of my favorites. too bad it was never finished.

"Infiltration: As Real As It Get's"       http://infiltration.sentrystudios.net/

It was a mod under development for Unreal Tournament (the very first online game I played. Didn't have intarwebz before this)

 

It had "real aim" (no crosshair and floating gun (so it was not centered to the screen like in CoD)).    (Just like "Red Orchestra". But before that came out)

Handgrenades had actual shrapnel.

There was a loadout system based on stamina (the more gear you take with your characer, you become less mobile and shorter sprint time).

16 v 16 playerers.

No TOXIC environment or community.

Not tried it yet but I have played TQ for many hours. It’s a bit weird really as I can’t say I enjoyed it as such but it had that just another ten minutes hook to it.

You don't need to replay the base game, you can start with from were the expansions starts :)

I saw Diablo III like that, I didn't enjoy it, but it was easy to just login and waste 10 minutes or so, haven't played that since the expansion hit so it might be better now though. TQ on the other hand I had great fun with, it was the first game of it's kind I got really invested in.

Bought Titan Quest on steam years ago and loved it to death. And got the remastered version for free here a few months ago on steam that I've yet have found time to play, as THQ nordic have been nice to give all their recent HD remakes for free if you own the old game on steam. As this is the 4th one they have given me so far. Did install it last night to give it a bash again as my November list is finally done. Had a blast and played it until 6 AM. It still fun and has a more interesting and flexible character system then say Diablo etc. I did start from the beginning, and went with a full fire build that I've never tested. Really fun still.

 

Anniversary ed is dirt cheap on steam now via the sale. Well wroth the price now.

I think last part is the real difference. Although I played it a lot, by my standards, I never felt invested in it. Generally games I’ve spent a lot of time playing, I’ve also spent time learning how to play but TQ was nothing like that. Still £5 very well spent.

And I think no one mentioned Dungeon Keeper so far - or I am visually inept ;)

Depends on how old the game should be.

 

Still have my NES standing around here and there I enjoy playing "Star Tropics" (RPG), the Mario games (Platformer), Life Force Salamander (Shoot'em'up/Bullet Hell).

Regarding the Gameboy (up to the NDS) I just like the core Pokemon games, with name "Crystal, Emerald and Platinum", those are by far my favourites.

On the PC there are countless games and classical pearls that most should already people know, but one of the more modern "classics", released in 2004, that I love is "Scrapland" (Action RPG).

Otherwise on the PSP "Ace Combat" and the "Monster Hunter" games.

 

By the way, for anyone interested in classic games from older consoles, you can get yourself a PSP (with broken UMD reader, its cheaper) and install a custom firmware with some emulators and games for them. You can find everything on google
