UO is the obvious example of a game that was good 10 years ago and still playable today. Recently I tried to play Ultima Underworld and some of the old Ultima games.... unplayable!!! The interface, graphics, and gameplay were too primitive and distracting. I'm trying to check out the old Heroes of Might and Magic (III), but it still hasn't captured my interest. Sim City Deluxe: 8 hours of intense addiction then 'omg what the hell is the point of this game, there is no point, why bother?' I have always enjoyed the Impression Games City builder series, but I lost interest with Caesar IV. Bad graphics, bad interface, bad gameplay. You are constantly forced to micromanage and turn industries on or off to process Caesar's requests. I don't even have a clue how the combat system works. So imagine my surprise trying out Caesar III again after all these years. I had forgotten how simple yet elegant the gameplay is. Its a real good game, balanced and interesting, and if it weren't in 2D 1024x768 unzoomable, you wouldn't guess it was an old release. Its fun planning cities, trying to find military defensible locations, trying to get things running before you are invaded or go bankrupt, debugging the city layout as it gets larger... A game like that, they could re-release it as is, with a slight update to the graphics, and it would still be more original and innovative than other games of its type. I'm looking forward to trying the later games of the series, pre-Children of the Nile: The Greek one, the Pharaoh one, and the China one. I don't think I ever played the Greek one so maybe that's next. That might be months from now though as this Caesar III has so many scenarios and I have so much less time to play games. So have you guys rediscovered any old games, finding them superior and more addicting to some of these current releases?
