Windows 7: Anyone still playing old games?

Anyone still playing old games?

Even though there's a lot of new games today, which look better, there's still something about old games (Diablo II, Star Wars Empire at War, Galactic Battlegrounds,etc.) that makes me want to play them. No, not because I have played them before and I have memories of them, (I have only played some,) there's that charm within those games...

Anyone here who's like me?

Games I play:

Stronghold Crusader (playing this atm)
Commandos
Commandos II
Captain Claw
Heroes I
Heroes II
Heroes III
Heroes IV
Red Alert II / Yuri's Revenge
C&C Generals / Zero Hour
Robin Hood (forgot the exact title, plays like Commandos)
Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds/Clone Campaigns

Sometimes I like to indulge in a little gaming nostalgia but it never really lasts too long. and hour or so just for the feeling. But there are way too many new things as it is, just no time to spend on the past

im fond of kerplunk, and mousetrap. though i prefer cludo.

i also really enjoy kid chameleon on the mega drive emulator.
in the early 90's i could complete it in 12 hours and the gaming mags at the time said pros took 18 hours ,
sadly i dont have the time these days to get that kind of hook back.

I still play sometimes the old SSI games, AD&D series, so that is showing my age.

Still got both my Crusader: No Remorse and Crusader: No Regret discs, although the last time I managed to get them to install and play was in the mid-2000s.

Was watching a friend play the recent Deus Ex game and thought to myself, hey, this is what an updated Crusader game should look like. Albeit with more combat though, Deus Ex seems to be more of a sneaking around thing.
