What are you playing?
So, I just thought it would be interesting to find out what retro games people are playing.

For some reason, I've been playing Kirby's Block Ball...

Well, I guess we'll go with 1999 or earlier. That is a totally arbitrary choice.

Most of the games I play are considered "retro" by young people, such as Mishy. I've been trying to get gDNA to recognize my Dark Forces II, but it thinks I'm playing Jedi Academy.

I bought an old copy of Sea Wolf at a thrift store and have been meaning to give it a go. I just need to put the 5.25 drive back in my computer first.

Baldur's Gate I guess is the closest I've played, I think Icewind Dale came out after 1999.

I don't really have many retro games I guess, plenty of stuff from early 2000s though since thats when I started to actually get into gaming a bit more seriously then Pokemon :P

Also I guess I think retro is more a style then a time period as stuff like Dark Forces 2 is hardly retro for me

Play Daggerfall if you haven't already Its the 2nd game in the Elder Scrolls series. So if you enjoyed Skyrim and Oblivion try Daggerfall as well. Great story line and great old graphics ^^

I Have to Agree Baldurs Gate is an amazing retro series.

Oh, I have. Wasn't very good at it, lost interest but the concept was cool.

Wrong time period I guess :P
