    I've been going through my game CDs and tried to install some oldies with mixed success - but I've been playing Constructor, Dungeon Keeper 2 and Transport Tycoon and loving it :D

    They must be around 10 years old by now, and yet I'm still re-playing them. Is anyone playing a game that's even older?

    I occasionally play Halo 1 on my mac, but I have been too busy to any kind of games as of late.

    Starcraft's definitely in there. So is Battlezone II, interestingly enough.

    Is that the game where you build a base in a 3D world, where you are a commander that can take control of vehicles?

    I vaguely remember playing that a long time a go :)

    Tetris is probably the oldest game I play, followed by Starcraft.

    I think Starcraft is as old as I go back, I'm pretty sure all my other games that I play (HL/CS, SRO, Red Alert, Tribes 2/3, UT) are not as old as SC. Then there's the classic arcades... Tetris, Snake/Centipede, Dig Dug, Mortal Combat...

    I play Final Fantasy VII frequently. It's from '97, I think.

    I wasnt considering old arcade games but it looks like Oregon trail (developed in 1971) is older than tetris (developed in 1984) so it looks like it is still the oldest game I play.

    Thats it! I'm calling shenanigans! Do you expect me to believe that you play the ORIGINAL Oregon Trail?

    I do, and I love it. I have the original and I have the 5th edition and play them both. I even have it downloaded on my phone.
