    No, but not all the games in their database are downloadable. If they found a place that still sells it, then they link it. If not, it's free to download unless the publisher complains.

    I downloaded it from their site two days ago, so my guess is it's available.

    I remember walking into the store and buying Peoples General when it first came out. Damn im getting old but not that old like some of the others here. The time when walking into a PC game store made me wish I had more $ to get every game there unlike today where I just laugh at the pitiful games on the shelves.

    Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain.
    Shame the downloadable version I got doesn't have any of the ingame movies. If anyone know of a place where you can get it with movies, you'd make me more than happy btw.

    Also playing Dink Smallwood for the first time (so maybe it's a bit off-topic, but it's still an oldie).

    People's was great, although I thought PG2 (which I still fire up) was the best in the series - pretty sad what happened to SSI and the wargaming genre as a whole.

    I still play
    Thief 1 & 2
    Deus Ex
    System Shock 2
    Axis & Allies
    Dungeon Keeper 2
    Civ 3
    Fallout 1 & 2
    Sid Meier's Gettysburg & Anteitam
    Dune (yeah the first one)
    Close Combat 3 & 4

    I played Fallout again like two weeks ago, but it kinda sucked because I know exactly how to play it, what happens... No surprises left.

    The only game I "constantly" play is Arcanum. It's so much better than any Fallout game. And Terra Arcanum is a so much better forum than NMA.

    :roll:

    Sorry. I didn't really mean that. Except for the part about Arcanum. I don't know what it is about that game. It's just so overwhelming. All those possibilities. In comparison, Fallout is so limited. That's just a fact...

    I love the fact, that almost every post contains Fallout.

    Mt list would be

    Fallout 1 & 2
    Diablo
    UFO: Enemy Unknown is probably one of the best games ever. I've been wanting to play it for several years now.
    Neverhood.

    Last week or so I finished Incubation again and now I am playing the expansion. I really love this game. A shame, that there is no new game planed or announced. I would love to bring my marines again back to Scay'Hallwa in actual graphics and with better modding possibilitys. (Or with the old graphics and only with better modding possiblitys. That would be also enough for me.)

    I also want to start again with Albion, when I finished Incubation - the wilderness missions.

    And Carmageddon is nice too. :>

    It's not really *that* old if it's not a DOS game...

    I've never really stopped playing Fallout 1&2, I keep coming back to them every now and then.

    Other games I've played again:
    UFO: Enemy Unknown
    X-Com: Terror from the Deep
    Another World
    Maniac Mansion
    Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
    Wolfenstein 3D
    Doom I&II
    WarCraft II
    StarCraft

    At the moment I spend more time with old games than new ones, playing old Dos games I never managed to finish or even trying out games I never played back then... There's something called *gameplay* in these good ol' oldies that the new games with fancy graphics and whatnot are just totally lacking...
