    I'd like to win Duke Nukem 3D.

    I'd love to play Earl Weaver Baseball - but last time I tried on my PC, it was too fast for the game to handle. Using the arrow keys, the cursor jumped from one side of the screen to the other. I couldn't get it to the selection screen to switch the controls to the mouse. Bummer.

    game that brings back memories: Solar Wind (which I don't think in the gog's list yet.)

    This site is great; There are lots of games that just do not work on new hardware and OS. It is cool that we have someone helping to keep there IPs working and available.

    The game that I would like to get is Beyond Good and Evil

    A few of the (good) old games that I played and loved are both Earthworm Jim's (I can still hear the SQUAK from the birds in the first level), both Abe games (So many memories playing that with my dad when I was younger.... That game is so much harder than I remember!), and the first Rayman game (I can only remember how vivid the sprites were)

    The game I'd like to win is Descent & Descent 2. First time I played those games I almost hurled from the vertigo of being able to move around 360 degrees in a 3D environment. Was trippy!

    Wow...that's quite the catalog they have there! Hadn't checked it in a while. Great interview too.... Be nice if they added the MechWarrior series as well as the Age of Empire series.

    Good article - thanks!
