"Red Alert is in my opinion overrated. I disliked movie sequences and units looked not so nice as TA!" - remember red alert came out a long while before TA showed its face.... I guess I liked it as you kinda role played as a commander.. Red Alert had great cutscenes, especially compared to the newer CnC games- drew me in like a sexy nurse!

Gobliins 2, I played the amiga one first, have fond memories playing that coverdisk (maybe cuamiga?) - awesome

Homeworld, we're moving away from classic here, but hey, tahts one damn fine game

"(Awesome too specially II, III was the pinnacle!)
(up n till the recent trash NFS underground etc aren't my cup of tea neither was porsche challenge!)" - completely agree, 3 was AWESOME! - 2 was pretty good, the rest were like dead donkeys - lots of hype but no deliverence ... ... underground= puh, EA lost it a long time ago.

I beleive Homeworld was instant classic. It's 7 years old game and plays well on my old computer (PIII 450MHz)

One of the games that I still play is Civilization II and Civilization II ToT. Great games, many very good scenarios etc.

Yes, it does. Rescently I completed it as it works fine on XP.


Some games, like Homeworld, I call instant classics.

Another one would be Kohan II (never played first part ) , Call of Duty, Age of Empires series, Unreal...

Some games that I played a lot:
Might and magic vi-viii.
The already mentioned Ultima underworld I and ii.
Ultima vii.
Commandos.

And I just bought Indiana Jones and the emperor's tomb. Maybe not a classic, but I enjoy it.
