The hubbub around Nintendo's SNES Classic announcement this week had us wondering: what would an equivalent, retro PC look like if it released today, and what games would you put on it?

nice list. the OG Wolfenstein, Doom and Duke Nukem are musts.... I know there were a lot of others I can't recall so off the top of my head the only thing I can think to add would be Arkanoid. that game was so much fun with that stupid bouncing ball and bricks. Then more recently games like Starcraft, Diablo, etc. I'm think OG PC though like late 80s early, early 90s.

Duke Nukem the original side scroller version or Duke Nukem 3D?

Seraphim1894d ago (Edited 1894d ago )

OG!! though 3D too would be fine.

The orignal Sims was awesome.

On topic, I wish a PC classic would exist somedays.

Why Civilization II Is The Best Game In The Series

Our editor harks back to a simpler time, as he explains why he considers Civilization II to be the best in the series to date.


When did you know you were playing a game way too much?

PC Gamer writes: Many games are designed to be extremely moreish. Civ invites you to click that end-turn button and keep building your empire. Online games like Runescape let you team up with like-minded people from around the globe to go on adventures. Surely you can fit another round of Dota 2 in before bed, and maybe another. But there comes a time when it all has to stop, right? Right??

This week's question: When did you know you were playing a game way too much? Let the confessions begin.

Dota 2 the ultimate culprit!

Or any one of its sequels, like Xtreme Beach Volleyball.

When i was basically plugged into the wall with my PSP. I was playing Persona 3 Portable for 14 hours straight.

It was my first Persona game and first SMT game.

When you hear birds chirping and then you remember you started playing after dinner

When I pressed start after the credits rolle unless I could skip the credits sooner.

Asteroids,defender,pitfall,he ro,Galaga, dig dug, yi are kung fu, gyruss,Mega man,metroid, contra, castlevania, ninja gaiden, Zelda, super Mario,Gunstar heroes, streets of rage, street fighter 2,phantasy star, super monaco gp,syphon filter, Tenchu, tekken,guardian heroes, ready 2 rumble, soul calibur,nfl 2k,nba 2k,ridge racer, gran turismo, ace combat, resident evil,devil may cry, so on and so forth yada yada yada blah blah blah. Yes I've played a lot of games.

Back then up until this point, if a game is FUN,doesn't matter how it looks, how long it is, how many blisters, how many cramped hands throwing hadokens,if it's fun, I just kept playing and hitting start. Only stopping to eat, do homework, sleep(after the sun came up), pee, etc. Then jump right back in.

Now, I feel I don't have the time as I once did. But currently, I have spent many, many hours playing raw data with all the different characters and super hot on psvr among the other games I have. Dual wielding definitely has that Dante feel crossing hands or shooting from behind my head to the side.(yes,you can pull that off in psvr)There's just nothing else like it. And let's not even talk about being the archer. It's like being green arrow for hours on end.
