Yeah, that one and 'Hitch Hikers Guide' were pretty good.

HHG kicked my ass, though.

Blackthorne is the fucking best game ever. YOU MUST PLAY THIS GAME BEFORE YOU DIE OR YOU WILL NEVER TRUELY LIVE. If you need help with this game I wrote a walkthrough at gamefaqs.com--it's the one by CrazyBoneX.

Yes, there are roms for an emulator named MAME (run a search its easy to get). The roms arent to hard to find either, even up to more current games. I have been playing D&D:shadow over mystarra and a ton of old shooters/puzzle/fighters.

Heres a link to a good site with a shitload of cool games: http://www.emuparadise.org/roms/cps2/ You can play all the CPS2 and arcade games on MAME.

Someone did mention the Monkey Island games (which were badasss), but did anyone ever play The Neverhood? It was a mid-nineties PC adventure/puzzle game, that was completely done in claymation. He lived in this real tripped-out clay world, and the game was just brilliant.

You can also never go wrong with SNES Super Mario World, and the sequel, Yoshi's Island.

Master of Orion 2 kicked ass! I spent hours and hours playing that game.

MOO3 sucked so bad. I had such high hopes for it, but I totally got ripped off. There are so many bugs in that game it's not even funny.

Moonstone is the one old game that holds a spot in my heart. I even tried to get it running on Windows 98 with an emulator for Amiga, but had no luck getting it to run flawlessly. It would run, but the game's graphics/sounds were slowed down, and completely unplayable.
If anyone here actually managed to get it to run on Windows, let me know, cause I'd love to get that game up and running again. I miss it *sniff*
