Hello GoG. I just read about this site in The Escapist (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/issues/issue_190/5793-Preserving-Our-Playable-Past
), and immediately flocked to it. I do see some games I'd LOVE to try, (like the first or second Fallouts).
I love both old and new games. My gaming "career" began with DOS classics (now mostly shareware/freeware) from Apogee and others, such as Commander Keen, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure, Duke Nukem 2D (vs. Dr Proton), Crystal Caves, and Secret Agent. I missed gaming console-side as a kid, until my mom got me a PS1 for my birthday one year. We started off with arcade space shooters (if anyone else remembers playing Philosoma I'm going to piss myself!) and action games. I missed Metal Gear Solid and other "mature" titles during that time, but did get through the first two Wild ARMs and FF7, as well as Medievil and Pandemonium. I greatly enjoy playing older games as well. I've completed the entire MYST series (with a walkthrough!), I'm a big fan of older RTS games (Total Annihilation, AoE1, and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 1 & 2) as well.
I've played through ports of classic SNES games, such as Chrono Trigger (PS1: FF Chronicles), and a GBA port of Final Fantasy 6. I often download older games on the PSN, such as Castlevania: SotN, Syphon Filter, and Suikoden.
Right now I'm about 70-75% through Super Metroid on my mom's Wii.
