This intro gets me pumped man.
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV1vodHcqkM]YouTube - Red Alert (Intro)[/ame]

So many honorable mentions. I'm an RTS and FPS nut, so naturally I gravitate towards mouse and keyboard. Warcraft ported to PS1/Saturn and Red Alert on PS1 keep me busy for hours. I've over heated my consoles playing this ... that's like UNHEARD OF back then lol (well I'm sure it happened to most of you guys !).

I just love a lot of these old games. There are some awesome new PC games as well. I love the game mechanics on PC games, they are so addictive.

Anyway for modern PC games I gotta say Valve, ID, and a Blizz.

THIS THREAD IS ABOUT PC GAMES!

P.S. Quake live runs on about any computer, you gotta give it a shot if you like quake 3. It's free too ! QUAKE LIVE

Re: Pc games

I highly recommend the old Mechwarrior games, expecially Mech2, and it's two stand alone expansions Ghost Bear's Legacy, and Mercenaries.

Re: Pc games

I'm not some hardcore PC gamer, but I do play Starcraft from time to time. Yume Nikki is pretty fun, and I'll take a few hours every now and then to play Minecraft.
What I need to do, is get my hands on the first two Fallout games.

Re: Pc games

Does C64 count? The last ninja, Gateway to Apshai, Sam and Ed, Quest for Tires, and this other really fun basketball game that I cant remember the name of it. You could pick from 8 guys I think and it was 2 on 2, I think one of the guys was Hightower or Skyscaper, and there was a DR. something too.

Why wouldn't it count?

I can't remember the names of any of the games I played on C64 but I had a lot of fun with all of them.

Re: Pc games

I'd play SC2 with you fungusman but I honestly kinda suck at it, for now. I used to play SC a lot years ago but I took an extended break until now. So far I can only manage the Terrans, Protoss and Zerg get me killed when I try to play them.

Re: Pc games

My friend code is 322 and my username is dudebro(surprise right?). I'm willing to play with anyone as long as they don't take it too seriously and they don't mind me potentially holding them back.
So are any maps really good? I've played a few and so far so good but none stand out as awesome, imo.
