Depends how old you mean. I play games from around '93 and up but not many more before lol.

My personal faves around that era would have to be both DOOM games, all the original Duke Nukem series, Wolfenstein 3D. A shit load of 2D side-scrollers (like Duke).

Going a bit further ahead near the 2000 era I enjoy System Shock 2 and Half-Life. Oh, and the Baldur's Gate series. Still trying to find Fallout 1 and 2 and Planescape: Torment.

There was this game my parents had for our C64 that was a Space Invaders clone. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of it. There was also this one dental-themed game (my mother is a dental hygenist) where you'd use a toothbrush and floss to remove bits of plaque from these huge teeth. If you weren't fast enough, the teeth would rot and fall out. Can't remember the name of that one, either. Oh well, they say that memory is the first thing to go.

Half-Life's a retro? o.O

Whoa, then I have a pretty big pile of retro games in my collection, I think.

Grim Fandango
Road Rash
Dragon Throne: Battle of Red Cliff

and does Emergency Room counts?

I think that's old schol Activison, circa very early 80's I believe. No clue on the name and the ones referenced on Wiki don't appear familiar as that game.

Hack/Nethack, for sure.

First online game was MajorMUD.. then various Merc/Diku MUDs, then finally ROM/RoT.

.. and I really loved Total Eclipse (released in 1988, 5" floppies, was on PC iirc.. tho it might have been on my Tandy.. ), though I can't remember why --- I've kind of forgotten most of my life before the non-dialup internet.
