I prefere CD format since you sometimes get extra like speech and music included, like with the CD32
So anyone noticed anything special regarding the games ?

Maybe the fact they all have CD32 versions

EDIT: in fact I had to do a double take because I thought you were hi-jacking the thread with pics of CD32 games

hehe good eyes KG
Most are infact coming from the CD32, but not quite all, they do share 1 thing in common, they are all found on the almighty Amiga which is probably why you thought I was hi-jacking the thread

Great games guys, some pure classics!
I remember Alone in the Dark was very popular on the PC when I was a kid and System Shock 2 is awesome, one of the best pc games ever made in my view!

Click for big version.

It would be nice to have some of the games from screen shots ISO-ed.

more pics people, show us your games!

To the left, The Dig, huge scifi adventure from 1995, sadly never came on the Amiga.
Next we have Reunion from 1994, another scifi game letting you guide humanity into a dangerous universe.
3th we have Lemmings 2 from 1993.

How about those isos?

I have only cases left without CDs at home.

CDs are in huge CD holder that is somewhere in basement at the moment. Will have to clean and organize before I take any pictures.

TheBoss: did you ever finish Reunion???

I got pretty far, but the game is so damned linear that I always screw up somewhere and have to start over because the enemy is just far more powerful than I am

Well since some of these are old games, same eara as Amiga games, maybe some can vertify if any of the games have been giving free status?
I know this list & list2

So Beneath a Steel Sky & Flight of the Amazon Queen are freeware now, no problems cloning these games.

Gimbal: yes I did complete it but I think I used alot of saves to do it... Its a great game when you give it time... I just wish there where a random universe generator as its always the same when you start over.

sure grab the ISOs from the zone... wait I'm just kidding .

but if you wanna find some of the games which are no longer sold or hard to find a seller, I'd suggest taking a look at torrentspy. (system shock is currently there)
the best client is http://www.utorrent.com/ for windows. believe me.

also make sure to read this faqs to get those old games running smoothly on new systems: http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=60930#d3d

I finished Amiga version over 10 years ago. It was great, but just as you TheBoss mentioned, you have to use a lot of saves.

Even at the end I had to replay to hire bounty hunder to prevent to get killed.

Raptor was fun though. On a certain date you would not hear a tune when the apogee logo showed but the apogee employees just shouting the tune with their voices and laughing afterwards

And I believe on another date some ground installations would be replaced by monkeys :s

Awsome weapons in that game, and awsome sound!

Ahaha thats awesome gimbal!
Back when I got my first pc in 1996, I used to play this, even today 10 years later its fun to play.

Moree pics from me!

First of we have Dune 1, from 1992 in 3 versions Awesome game I completed it on Amiga and PC several times. Next is Dune 2 from 1993, an instant classic that started the hole realtime genre for serious. In the middle we have Dune 2000 made in 1998. It was markeded by Westwood as being an upgraded Dune 2 so I bought it as soon as it came out Last we have Emperor: Battle for Dune, the 4th sequal in the Dune series coming out in 2001 with some cool soundtracks for each house and the first 3D game made by Westwood. So there you have it, the complete Dune experince from 1992 to 2001
