    As much as I loved Mafia, for some reason I haven't revisited it since finishing it. Probably just too many other good and decent games have come along since then.

    Oblivion, of course, would be on the list for me.
    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory I've played again and again, so yes, that's another one.
    FLATOUT! would have to be on the list.
    Sid Meier's PIRATES! would probably wrap up my 'have to have' list.

    Maybe I'll think of more later on.....I'm involved with car repair at the moment. :(

    Chaos Theory for sure [Sam I Am]

    And not to go completely retro here, but Soldier of Fortune 2

    And I'm gunna hafta agree that flatout was a damned good title as well, good for ceaseless hours of enjoyment on the mini-games alone.

    what else...I dunno...possibly Hitman 2?

    Hitman Blood Money will be out soon, so I'd say look for that. Oblivion is at the top of my list as I've only slept a couple times since I got it.

    SOF 2 is good but I think 20$ is still a bit too much for such and old game.


    Mine:
    Hitman Codename 47
    Hitman Silent Assasin
    Hitman Contracts (though its kinda sucks)
    SOF2
    Oblivion
    C&C first decade
    Splinter Cell CT
    Farcry
    Solitare
    Starcraft
    Morrowind
    KOTOR

    I'm gonna go retro.

    If I can be assured that all of these games work flawlessly on the machine (half of 'em won't run on XP and at least one won't run on 98)

    Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising... DOS game orginally came on 14 floppies
    Masters of Orion 1 and 2
    Starcraft
    Emperor of Dune
    Caesar III

    I'm sure I'll think of more, but those are a good start.

    Really, was it on the huge floppies? I never knew that, I only played it the first one when it was out on cd.

    14 3 1/2" floppies. At least that's what I remember, though it may not have been a legitimate copy. 'Twas a long time ago.

    Yes, I'd have to agree tha Far Cry should be added. I need to actually play it some more as I don't recall trying it since upgrading to my X800 XL. Could be interesting. ;)
