Question Old games where the experience hasn't aged

Welcome

Just been playing the single player on Half Life 2 and It still looks pretty good. But the single player game is still a lot of fun. Really good AI and level design and a fantastic atmosphere. Anything you have revisited lately you thought holds up?

I am always surprised how badly some things have aged, some of the graphics are very low def.

Magic Carpet is still good fun.

Most of the stuff I play never really needed the Graphics, Colonization and so fourth.

Half-Life 2 absolutely remains a joyous experience to play.

I find that a lot of 2D games from the '90s before the awkward transition to 3D still hold up well. Point & click adventures, strategy games, platformers, etc. I just played the original Super Mario Bros. (1985) for the first time in my life and it didn't feel like a particularly dated gameplay experience.

For a 3D game, I still think the flight engine in the X-Wing games holds up beautifully to this day.

Yeah the X Wing series was great. Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance was fantastic

Point and click adventures -- to the point where they try to mimic the old style still.

Absolutely Monkey Island Is simply as wonderful as funny and playable as it was over 25 years ago

Tie Fighter absolute best deserves a remaster

Conflict Freespace and Freespace 2 are as good today as they always have been

11th Hour and 7th Guest both need updates but still playable
