    Rome: Total War. Own every single TW game ever made (all Collectors), i think Rome had the most depth. Medieval II was nice but.... Just hanging out for Empire.

    Oh and Quake 3 arena, UT2004, BF2, Halflife Deathmatch FTW

    Still playing Civ4 on a weekly basis - just the pinnacle of the Civ world. Always have two games on the go - one solo, the other with a couple of mates. Just brilliant!

    Would have to be TA and System Shock 2 for me... not many games have hit that kinda calibre since then. Supreme Commander was good, but TA was much better for it's time and Bioshock didn't even scratch on SS2 for me.

    Actually I think it needs saying. Emulation has benefited from CPU speed increases more than anything else I can think of partly because it scales so well to the speed and partly from the continuing efficiency of the emulators.

    Plenty of other emulators too, if you like old arcade and console games you can often relive them better than they were or very close to exactly how they were.

    I made an arcade stick a while back and it has had plenty of use from MAME and Finalburn. I'm about to refit it for use on my 360 though, SF4 has made me sad using the 360 dpad.

    I've heard people say add stuff to shortcuts (GTA IV) could you please explain how to do this?

    If there is no shortcut:

    go and find the original .exe. then rightclick and create short-cut.

    If there is a shortcut already

    rightclick the shortcut => properties

    in the properties menu in the target line text box, at the end add whatever command line was mentioned (after the " at the end), in this case -fullproc

    cheers

    Oh and Majesty is an awesome game. Seriously.

    And the one thing about Rome:Total War is that for me at least it seemed like a complete ripoff of Lords of the Realm with 3d graphics??

    I had the no unit limit patch, with 8 players all brawler spamming on a metal map? Yeah... it lags pretty fast.
