I don't go back and play really old games anymore. I'm still trying to find time to play the games I bought a while ago but haven't had time to play yet. But, my hearts yearns for my old favorites like Uncommon Valor and XCOM: UFO Defense.

So many games, so little time....

I still play Age of Empires, The Conquerors once and a while. Great game. Mainly I play because my wife will play it against me, when she loses she swears off it, (and on me) for a while then months later I can get her to play again. Haha.

Actually playing PG right now, in the Caucasus at the moment killing a few Ruskies. I would say between PG 1,2 and 3 Allied and Pacific General I would spent agood percentage of gaming time with this franchise

I finally got Master of Magic up and running on my Vista PC using DOSBox! If I had 3.5" and 5.25" floppy drives I could play a lot of my old favorites.

You could buy a plug in 5.25 and 3.5 floppy drives for about 20.00 bucks. Thats what I did.

I'd been holding off doing that since I have an old 486 with both 3.5" and 5.25" floppy drives. Unfortunately it isn't running and I'm not sure if I can get the tired old thing working again. Do you have any recommendations for an external 5.25" floppy drive?

Alpha Centauri is the main one, I actually play that quite a lot, even today. Last played it a couple of days ago. "Chairman Banana, your police state is godless and wretched!". I think it has aged well, I prefer it to Civ4.

I actually play a lot of old stuff, not been all that interested in new games for a while. I bought Aliens vs Predator the other day, but it sucked IMHO. It did, however, make me install the ten year old Monolith game, AVP2, and that was much better.

If it's just for Master of Magic, you could also wait a couple of weeks...it's already been guranteed to show up soon on Good Old Games.

I don't need it for Master of Magic--I have it on CD as well as on floppy (I got the CD version free with another game I bought from MicroProse) and MoM is working just fine for me with DOSBox. It's for the hundreds of other games I have on 5.25" floppies.

BTW I think it's great that GOG is releasing MoM. As dated as its graphics are, I believe many of today's gamers will appreciate the opportunity to play a classic such as it is.

Greybriar,

Plug-in Drives
I don't think you have much of a selction (due to low volume sales). Since they are so inexpesive you can't go wrong with whatever the store has on hand.

So far I have only found this one, Zap. I think I could probably pick up a used system for that price. But even those are getting hard to find.

I remember a package deal I bought a long long time ago had 4 cd's in it and the set contained: Master of Orion, Master of Magic, X-com Defender and X-com Terror. Now I tell you that was a classic set of great games if ever there was one and it was like $5.
