Oh, afirst person shooter?
Only ever played Doom, and Wolfenstein, and one or twocopies of the same era.

I prefer other games, like Civ2, Civ3, MoO2(DosBox), Ur-Quan Masters/Star Control 2 (OS converted by fans), and hundreds of flash games. Or "Really Bad Chess".
Since kids, I don't want to take much time to play, just started UQM with my sons as captains (their proficiency with keyboards is bad, not enough to survive a battle).

Amd I developed a motion sickness since I work 10h/day on computer monitors...

Some games age better than others, and for me it usually depends on the user interface more than the graphics. A clunky, hard to control interface makes it harder to get into an old game more than lame graphics.

One of the few classic games that still has a workable UI is the original Master of Orion. It stands up remarkably well, 320x200 resolution notwithstanding. :D

I have a ton of newer games that I still haven't played enough of.

Was anything interesting announced at E3? The only interesting thing I saw was the XCOM2 expansion tease, which wasn't all that interesting.

Anthem looked neat, but that was about it.

It's an Ubisoft title, that much is enough to curb all hype from me.

hi hi

Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced again? This is, what, the third time? :P (Man, I loved BG&E though.)

Speaking of Master of Orion, the original; I wonder if it is any easier to get a Mac OS9 Emulator for windows these days. The DOS version of Moo1 may have had a limited screen size, but with the OS9 version, you could resize the windows any way you wanted, and the extra popup windows could be moved around the screen and kept open. It was actually pretty awesome.

I still sometimes pull it up on my OSX box, since classic mode still works.

Maybe I'll throw in my two cents as well:

Divinity: Original Sin 2.

Being with a friend of mine right in the middle of the second playthrough of D:OS, and that game is still captivating. If the sequel is as good as this one, it's definitely a keeper for us.

Dreadnought may interest some of you. Strategic ship based shooter. I just recently tried it out and so far it's been pretty fun.

SheepShaver exists, but isn't the user-friendliest of programs. It may also help to search for “redundant robot sheepshaver” (sans quotation marks, of course).
