    Game i would like to win: Fallout 2 or the Might and magic 6 pack (spent many hours on both of these).

    Game i would love to have from the good old days is Battle Zone! This was truly a pioneer with a great story and was in fact the first game with the "wasd" movement controls that are so popular today. I actually have a vintage copy of the game that sort of works under XP, although you can only play with no video card acceleration/effects. I think this would be a great candidate.

    I would like to receive - Comanche vs. Hokum
    Advent Rising - was a very good game and I like Orson Scott Card a lot. Too bad that the trilogy was actually one game - released in 2005. I would like to live and see the other two games...

    If I could, I'd like to get the original Quake, but it probably wouldn't run on an XP 32 bit NTFS system.

    Ok, so I lost. Big deal. I was just wondering: TechSpot says they RANDOMLY selected the winners, but they also say that you could double your chances "by mentioning any other PC gaming classic you loved back in the day". How is that randomly? Surely they have to check the entries first if mentioning an old game is doubling my chances. And if they check first, where is the random-factor?

    Hi Mike. Most people mentioned old classics they liked, those who did were considered twice in a random selection in an excel sheet, like getting two ballots with your name rather than one.
