[QUOTE="floppybootstomp, post: 14190070, member: 4"] Something of a reapraisal, GOG have a 50% discount sale on for some games atm and me being a glutton for punishment, I bought four. Here's my GOG catalogue: Lands Of Lore 3 Descent 3 with expansion Earthworm Jim 3D Messiah Redneck Rampage Collection Blood 2 The Chosen Legacy Of Kain Blood Omen Legacy Of Kain Soul Reaver Moto racer 2 Rayman 2 On the computer detailed in my forum spec (<< over there, under my avatar) all of these games now work with the exception of Rayman 2, which won't open at all. Some games only worked at low res, typically 800 x 600; Lands Of Lore 3, which I had mentioned wouldn't work, I re-downloaded it and it installed ok, so original download was likely corrupted. With Moto Racer 2, it was originally set on hard setting, now I've set it to Easy setting, it's actually quite enjoyable. Redneck Rampage is quite good fun but actually quite difficult. Blood 2 The Chosen was playing fine but it doesn't have a save function, it saves automatically at the end of each short level. Or so I thought. I played around six levels, very enjoyable indeed, but when I started it again - no saved games - back to the start. Frustrating. And although all the others work, the archaic control settings tend to distract from the enjoyment. Some of them don't even have mouselook, makes me realise how far games have come on in 15 years. I bought the original version of Messiah but gave up on it about a third of the way through cos it was too hard. Thought I'd try it again. Although it runs ok the controls are awful, imo it renders the game almost unplayable. So, I'd reconsider my previous opinion and say go ahead and take a risk with these cheap old games, just remember you may have to run some at low res and be prepared for a Games culture shock when it comes to the conmtrols if you're used to modern day gameplay controls. In short, I wouldn't recommend action games such as fps's but think GOG would be ok for rpg's and rts games. I recall Ian liked the old game Total Anihilation, now that may be well worth a purchase. Of my list of Games, the only two that run perfectly for me are Legacy Of Kain Blood Omen and Moto Racer 2. Redneck Rampage is quite good but the controls are a bit shaky. [/QUOTE]
