What do you think the best games are that were released previous to the year 1999?

Mine has to be half life.
So just look. And wonder.

Shining Force 3 or Panzer Dragoon Saga. Cant decide.
Natus 3.4

Corrupt program now requires constant reboots and does not function at all in majority of instances. Designed with a web browser component to replace AOL, it has exceeded our expectations by being more crashy and unreliable and with worse tech support. We didn't think it was physically possible! A general product recall is advised; when it does function it seems to require background processes Girl 0.1Beta to stave off further crashes. Will someone PLEASE remove that code, and insert Backbone 1.9 in its place? That's assuming we even bother to continue this prog.

C&C and Red Alert. Best games ever.

Quake II doesn't score bad on my oldbies list though.

UT

This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Andre 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

Micro Machines. Simple as. The greatest racer ever to grace the Mega Drive! :D

Don't bother with the rest of the series unless you're a major fan or a ROM phr33k. The original is definitely best in the case of MM.
