    Just finished a really good Half Life 2 mod called Strider Mountain. Really well done, quite long, and best of all, free (if you own HL 2).

    John Tiller's Battleground series, Napoleonic and Civil War. Matrix re-released updated versions in 07 but I've been playing them since the late 90's.

    Just built a raspberry pi game system emulator with games from the Atari 2600 all the way up to the playstation 1 loaded on it. Still get a kick out of Super Mario Bros.

    It's a blast to play multiplayer and because it's over 10 years old will play on just about any hardware. Perhaps I should set up a DawgShed server so everyone interested can gun down each other.

    Very cool. I still plan someday to build an arcade MAME like this - with every kind of control (trackball, spinner, etc.) so you can play anything from the 70's through the 90's.

    Just started playing Counter-Strike again after taking a 5 year break. Amazing how popular that game still is, although it seems to have gone 3rd world. Tons of Mexican and Central American servers.

    I see that with Wolfenstein as well. A few in the US but most in Eastern Europe or Asia. I think it's because of the older hardware still out in these areas.

    Just downloaded a version of MAME that I wanna try out. That's what the PI is all about, experimentation.
