I picked up Empire Earth free a few months back and this is just as cool. Enjoy!

Awesome! Thanks for the tip. Just snagged it for myself. :) Another great game I may or may not have time to play sometime in the future! lol

Yeah, having access to cheap or free games is awesome but it doesn't mean you play them all :)

I got this a few years back while waiting for Fallout 3. I had the same problem I have with RPG's now: I constantly start over, convinced there was a better way to do things. I think in the 10 hours I played it I never got more than one hour in with a character. TOO MANY CHOICES!!!

Fun though. Makes me miss turn based games. We have this obsession with real time action now. The VATS system was a decent compromise in Fallout3, but I do miss the good old tile based movement.

Miss the old days: I do too. Seems like the only people that are doing these older styled games are mobile or indie devs.

That said we can always play the old games, well I guess until they no longer run. Been impressed how old games still are playable on windows though. It's cool.

I need to give Fallout 1 and 2 their fair shake. I barely played them, and not until after playing 3 and New Vegas. Now that I have some distance from those, I can probably appreciate the old ones the way they deserve.

Makes sense. Kind of wonder how I would react to the ol Baldurs games considering I never played them. Excited about the new remake though.

Old games I played back in the day seem to hold up just fine though.

I love old games, but I've been too coddled by the new mechanics. I can't imagine playing doom without regenerating shields and health or mellee attacks. At least it had co-op.

And deathmatch.

I hear you though, but some old games still hold up for me. Not all but quite a few.
