    Game I'd like to win: Fallout 2. The Fallout series is supposed to be pretty in-depth with a meaningful character stat system, an open world good plotlines.

    Game I loved way back when: Jetpack. The shareware version was pretty close to the full game, and I played a lot of it. I think one of the only limitations was that you could only make 3 levels in the level editor, but I got around it by renaming old levels I made. I felt like such a hacker, subverting the shareware restrictions. The game has been released as freeware now.
    Liero and Worms were also a lot of fun.

    Fav GoG

    Well Cannon Fodder was one of my fav games from the mid 90's. I'd love to see GoG convert some other RTS games, like Dune and Dune II.

    Game I'd like to win: Freespace 2

    Games I would replay:
    In addition to many great games already cited, I would add the following :
    - Total Annihilation
    - Starlancer (Microsoft)
    - Planescape:torment (Bioware)
    - Dungeon Keeper 1&2 (Bullfrog)
    - Destruction Derby (Psygnosis)
    - Wipeout/Wipeout XL (Psygnosis)
    - System Shock

    The license on those games might be too costly but Total Annihilation could definitely be a good option ! And for an even older and less known game: Ascendency (The Logic Factory). I might even still have it lying around but no compatibility...

    GOG is like a great wish shared by many finally satisfied! I really see a lot of value added in making old games compatible with current windows versions.

    Great catalog (which can only get better!) and decent prices. I'm glad to have learned about the service.

    It's a memorable game to me. I played it to the ending part, and my computer was infected by viruses. I had to reinstall the whole system (I'm not good at computer 9 years ago), and lost the game in process. The game CD was lost somewhere and i din't have a chance to finish it!

    Here are some good ol' games that I remember spending a lot of time playing when I was younger:

    MechWarrior 2 - I spent hours playing this game. Would play it right now if it worked on XP....
    MechWarrior 2: Mercenaries - Equally fun as Mech2, and offered more than GB's Legacy did.
    Zork: Nemesis - One of the darkest in the series, but by far the most interesting.
    Zork: Grand Inquisitor - Funny and clever gameplay.
    Bioforge - Not many remember this one, but it was WAY ahead of its time.
    Baldur's Gate (Trilogy) - The most enjoyable D&D games ever made!
    Icewind Dale (Series) - Equally good D&D games!
    Myst - Love it or hate it; this game takes me back in a "good" way. :)
    Total Annihilation - The most enjoyable RTS ever created. Awesome music too!
    DOOM - You can't list the classics and not put this one up here....
    Homeworld (Series) - The most impressive 3D RTS I've ever played. Wish they'd make more.
    Caesar 3 - Best old-world city-building game ever because it was challenging and yet still fun!
    Diablo (1&2) - Both classics. I hope #3 doesn't disappoint....
    Age of Empires 2 - Balanced, fun, and addictive!
    System Shock 2 - Creepy and full of awesomeness. Gotta love SHODAN. :)

    hm... game I'd like to receive for free soo tempting but, I've made my choice: Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
    red alert 3 is the game that rocked my world from the old days, don't know if red alert 3 would be a classic though, maybe C&C that game was great I could play that game all day!
