LOL - I go to the office this morning and the boss says "You like video games don't you?" I'm thinking it's a trick question or something. I say yes and he pulls out a box with -

RTCW
Descent
Descent3
Quake 2
Quake 2 Extremities
Quake 2 Ground Zero
Recoil
Dig
War Of The Worlds
The 11th hour

And hands it to me, says "They're yours, have fun."

I've never even heard of 11th hour (looks creepy), Recoil and Dig...but I can't wait til he's done with some more! :D

Good guy to work for...

The 11th Hour? Wasn't that one of those CD movie type games, sequel to The 7th Guest? Recoil is a great RC racer. Losts of fun. Nice graphics too. (The) Dig is a brilliant LucasArts adventure co written by Steven Spielburg. Has the Voice of Robert Patrick aka The T-1000. ::D:

Sounds good - I googled the 11th hour, and yes that's the one. I guess folks have trouble with it as it was designed for DOS.

The Dig looks awesome as does War of the Worlds...Kid in a flippin candy store! :D

Use ScummVM for The Dig. I played it not long ago. Tells a great mature story. Moving music, great voice acting. Puzzles are pretty hard through. Can be a little abstract at times.

The Dig is an excellent game. Lucas Arts really needs to go back to that style of adventure game.

what was that game called, its really old, you are the pilot of a tank, and you go through levels, navigating like a black, dark world with "stick figure" graphics. Dont exactly remember name, but was fun as hell. The enemies get progressively harder....
