Left 4 Dead 2 should be #1 priority in this emergency. Seriously. GOTY.

HEY, now you have that problem too of sequels coming before the original on the list!

HA!

Ahem...

If you buy Tales of Monkey Island on Telltale's site, or any of their series, they will send you a free DVD packaged copy when the season is complete. I got both Sam and Max seasons on DVD this way.

Why wouldn't he? I probably own that many games, or more, I just don't have them all ready to play.

Why is owning a lot of games bad? Sounds awesome to me.

Yeah, the list did that right after installing Windows 7.

I purchsed Sam & Max Seasons 1 and 2 directly from Telltale right after they annouced retail availability. I'll probably be doing the same with Monkey Island.

Yep, I noticed the post in the official thread about it at Target. Literally went to Taget (about 3 miles away) an hour after it was posted, but the game wasn't there. Bought the Stronghold collection, HoMM 5 collection, and Empire at War Collection next door at Best Buy instead.

Edit - I only buy retail versions (DVD/CD) if there is one or if there is going to be one.

BTW - If anyone knows where to get the three old games I mentioned in the OP at a reasonable price, let me know.

You should get Realms of The Haunting. Its from ~1996 and its an amazing game.

Think of it like a mixture of a point and click adventure\puzzle\horror game and a first person shooter with graphics that look like Duke Nukem 3D. Lots of well done Full Motion Video too.

You also need Aquaria.

And Startopia.

And Mobile Forces.

Blade Runner...



You're missing some of my favorite games ever.
