    What games have stood the test of time, as in what video games do you play that came out a while ago that are still as fun and entertaining as when they were when they first came out.

    For me it has to be any ID shooter game such as Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Quake, etc.

    Diablo 2 and its expansion. Both are still extremely fun to play by yourself and with others, even after a decade.

    Congratulations on your first post since 2005.

    Also, Age of Empires is still good to play. Along with Mythology.

    I swear if I could see how many hours I've put into Diablo 2 it'd be at least 5,000.

    & Sonic the Hedgehog 2. San Andreas is a game I still play daily online so I guess that counts too, even though it isn't too old (only 6 or 7 years, right)

    It's Torin's Passage, and no one's going to know what you're talking about except for me.

    It's surprising that Al Lowe was able to create a genuinely good game that was family friendly.

    Also, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 though to 4 still hold up fairly well.

    I play it with my friends whenever we LAN.

    Also the old Command and Conquer games are still fun to play too.

    Probably the reason this game is still good is that they seemed to focus more on fun level design than aesthetics. I mean, Whomp's Fortress barely resembles a fortress at all, but it's a fun level. The Bowser stages are basically a random assortment of platforms and obstacles, but they work, and that's what's important.

    I'd say TF2 is a pretty good example of a game that has managed to adapt to new times and audiences and has applied the "games as a service rather than a product" Valve philosophy very well.

    From a personal standpoint I find it to be selling out, but there's plenty of Primeval Warriors who still play the game the way it's meant to be played.

    Also, any Tony Hawk game.

    Whenever the internet goes down for extended periods of time, I reinstall both of these. Whenever I reinstall Windows, these are two of the first programs on there. I've reinstalled Diablo 2 so many times that I just need to only briefly glance at the CD key to remind myself when typing it in.

    Also, playing as much Pharaoh as I did during my formulative years is probably responsible for most of my OCD tendencies today. Oh well, it was worth it - still is, actually. That whole series of games still has perfectly tight gameplay. There is nothing modern city-building games do that Pharaoh/CaesarIII/Emperor hadn't already perfected over a decade ago. The aesthetics of the series (Pharaoh in particular) are so perfect and colorful that all modern 3d city games are ugly in comparison.

    Actually deus ex is the game which have NOT stood the test of time
    While its an amazing game (best story rpg fps game ever in my opinion) it was buggy, clunky and outdated even for it's time.

    I agree with you, both deus exs are really clunky
    I still think the graphics of the first one are impressive though

    yeah - it's funny that Doom appeared as the first game in the thread, seeing as how it's really only good for nostalgia at this point. Nobody actually just sits down and plays Doom because it's fun. The game is painfully obsolete.

    First person shooters generally don't age well, with some exceptions (Swat 4 for instance - though I'd blame that more on the FPS genre's hollywoodization; realistic, down to earth FPSes don't get any publisher support whatsoever these days, so Swat 4 is still the best in it's particular niche.)

    That's a dumb thing to say
    Games are good because of their gameplay, Doom's gameplay is a classic
    I don't know anyone who still sits down and plays Doom, but I bet it happens
