    Hello guys!
    I have a really old pc with Pentium MMX @ 200 Mhz & 128 Mb ram.
    Can you recommend me some old OSes or games to have fun with? [​IMG]

    Damn that's old.
    I would recommend Age of Empires 2, that should work on your PC.
    Also try Rollcage, Revolt and maybe some emulators.

    you could literally find a better pc in a dumpster, but
    Descent
    GTA
    Duke Nukem 3D (forever isn't out yet, also duh I know it's never coming I'm joking)
    search "abandonware" for ancient shit

    Half-Life 1 and Opposing Force should run since it requires a 133 MHz processor and 24 MB RAM.
    Blue Shift, Team Fortress Classic and Counter-Strike likely won't since they need 500MHz.

    Play DOS games like there's no tomorrow:
    Dungeon Keeper 1
    Ultima VI and VII
    Martian Dreams
    Constructor
    Terra Nova

    Also some Win9x games:
    Civilization II
    Earthworm Jim
    Betrayal in Antara
    Alpha Centauri
    Abe's Oddysee
    Abe's Exoddus
    Little Big Adventure 2 (highly recommended!)

    Those were some of my most played games back on my Pentium 166 non-MMX with 48MB of RAM and a Voodoo Banshee. Ah, good times, good times.
    I remember the joy of being able to play FF7 when I received my Voodoo Banshee [​IMG]

    There are lots and lots of good old games, out there, just give a look around [​IMG]

    OpenTTD should run on that just about. It's an open source remake of Transport Tycoon Deluxe with improvements.

    +1 to Total Annihilation also.

    I'd recommend Icewind Dale, it was one of my favorite RPGs back in the days.

    Nvm, the requirements for Icewind Dale was slightly higher than I expected. But, I have another good RPG to reccommend - Might & Magic VII: For Blood and Honor. I've played it for numerous hours, and it's just a really fun game. Hell I even replayed it less than a year ago as it's just that awesome.

    Other games worth mentioning:
    Age of Empires
    Age of Empires II
    Diablo
    Heroes of Might and Magic II
    Heroes of Might and Magic III
    Jazz Jackrabbit
    Jazz Jackrabbit 2
    Starcraft
    Worms 2
    Worms Armageddon

    I can't believe no one mentioned Fallout 1, 2, & Brotherhood of Steel, maybe Diablo 2 (Diablo 1+hellfire expansion was already mentioned) and the first 2 warcrafts.
