Thanks grey, I may very well send you a PM on that someday. I have a lot of old titles too, we should exchange notes sometime.

I think I remember that one....now I can't recall if I played Betrayal at Krondor or Return to Krondor (one of them was pretty bad...I think it was the one I played). Based on Ramond E. Fiest? or Feist? books.

sorry to be a kill joy but I have to say... old games suck. I find it hard to stare at a swarm of pixels that are supposed to be a sprite. it makes my eyes bleed.

having said that Daytona USA is the best old game. and it makes my eyes bleed.

Yes! I played Deus II and it was awesome. I like FPS that have an RPG element to them where you can build up your character. I also need to play System Shock I sometime, II was also very good like Deus.

Thanks for the recommend sir!

Well, if you liked DX2, then DX1 will blow your mind. Just start the game and let yourself get immersed, it's that good, and the story is THAT good too.

DX2 was like a crappy console port (which it really was) compared to 1.
