I just reinstalled Diablo II: Lord of Destruction not even a week ago, recreated my Druid (favorite class by the way) and I'm already near the end of Act I.

Gotta love classics like this that you can just play over and over again.

Yes.. sadly though there aren't a lot of classics i can play :( (IE Disciples : Sacred Lands, Might and Magic 6-8, Lands of Lore III).... it could be cause im running on Windows 7 premium rather than home edition, but none the less im still able to play diablo 2 and starcraft at least :)

Well the games i really really wanted to play were the original Might and Magic VI-VIII, and Disciples : Sacred Lands... i tried every compatibility, but i can't seem to get them to work, i really wish steam would just put these games on there list like they do with a lot of old games to which all of them work on my computer.

One of the greatest drawbacks of any Windows after Windows XP is its near complete loss of reverse compatibility with older programs, most notably older games, its also the reason why I won't upgrade to anything past the latest service package for XP.

The reason older Blizzard titles like Starcraft, Diablo and Diablo II are still playable even in Vista and Windows 7 is because Blizzard puts great care into making their games and keeps them constantly updating with the times.

Also Diablo II and Starcraft are still played on line via Battle.net, another reason they are kept up to date with ever evolving operating system.

Hmm, I have played some old games when they were not too old. digimon world, dragon force, Lufia II, mordor: ruins of dejenol, dragon quest IV... so on.
Actually, it's the experience from those games that makes me dislike some newer games, specially when they are dumbly easy. Though I do not miss some older games, like asteroid or space invaders from my atari.

Definitely, I had the old Sega Mega Drive as a kid, and then the PS1, but I download emulators and DosBox to play them now. Good ol Sonic, Mario, Super Smash Bros.
I also loved playing DooM, and Jazz Jackrabbit, Monster Bash, Commander Keen, Tales of Phantasia, Seiken Densetsu 3, Wacky Wheels, Spyro The Dragon, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat,....
I could go on and on.

Yep, I find myself playing the old Final Fantasy and Resident Evil games all the time. I don't play too many games from before the mid-90s though.

Heh. Found this on the forum after I beat Contra WITHOUT CHEAT CODES~ . My big bro dug out his old console, let me played Contra ( he didn't let me when I was younger ). His face was like O.o when I finished it.

Also, currently playing Monster Rancher 2, with my frikin Kato ( Kato+Hare )with INT SPD 999 and others 700 ( 6th monster )
