Yeah Darklands was awesome. I actually think I bought it on GOG but it hasn’t aged well.

Yeah, I played a lot of Darklands back in the day. And I also bought it on GOG myself a few years ago and it just wasn't the same. Something else to file in "great memories, but.....".

Same for me with the Gold Box series I picked up on GOG some time ago. Just too retro.  :'(

I spent a lot of time on Malden and Everon back in the day. Still go back once in awhile.

And for theme music:

I'll throw a little more nostalgia into the ring with Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator WWII Europe:



Really fun old game. I think it was my very first proper WWII flight sim. I remember there was one mission I played over and over again. It was basically just a huge furball. You take off from an airfield in a P-51, climb to 20k feet or so and duke it out with a large number of Bf-109s. I also remember playing the train scenario from the video above a number of times, rocketing and bombing the train to varying degrees of success.

I'm one of those who can handle the aged graphics bit. I think its because I never really got to play those games.

But I'm in agreement, Darklands needs a serious remake.

I also wish someone would remake / reimagine Roadwar 2000.

I loved that game, well ahead of its time and it spanned a large number of genres.

Me too. Remember all the Hot Chicks waiting outside of the Game Shops to pick-up their dream gamer? The way they threw themselves at us was embarrassing. And then the choice was, 'Do I go home with her... or the game'? I usually choose whichever one had the hottest box-art.  :bd:

I was around 13 in the peak game shop era (1987). I had 3 more years until girls even noticed me.
