Old Games Flying Back in your Radar

In the interest of making sure I never have a decent percentage of my game library played, I’m always looking for games that I might have missed, and I’m guessing many of you are the same way.

Any games in particular that you kind of forgot about for a while, but are currently looking at again?


A long time ago, I played a demo on console for Syndicate-- not the original, but the JJ Abrams-worthy reboot with ridiculous post-processing, crazy weapons, stylish visuals, 4 player co-op shooting, and a dope dubstep/electronic soundtrack.

I was under the impression that it vanished for legal reasons or something, but apparently that’s not the case!


On that note, that soundtrack… dang!


Not too long ago I came back to try and finish Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, I made lots of progress, even tried to keep my characters roleplay in check via google sheets, getting all the stuff they gonna need to have and all, but I ended up being sucked into other game again.

▴Modeling career is going strong.

I’ll definitely try to finish it, won’t be getting the new one (not that I will be able to play it smoothly anyway) until I conclude the first story. :sweat_smile:

Right now I got back to Grim Dawn to at least finish the first difficulty, enduring the low fps I have with it. I really like the game, so that’s what keeps bringing me back to it.

▴Fiery Inquisition

There are still other ones that I wanna revisit to finish achievements, like Dust: An Elysian Tale, an Adventure Time one… And some that I wanna finish the story: Ara Fell, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, Shantae: Risky’s Revenge and so on…

And some more that I have installed and never played, but still want to. :weary:


Ah… this thing… Don’t own it, but I’m in love with the monster designs so much. Sometimes I watch the trailer in Youtube just to squeal in joy at the cool enemies. :slight_smile: Reminds me of Rayman’s character design (never finished the Great Escape either :sweat: )

My oldest thing now is Devil May Cry 1 which I’ve never finished (or got pass the 1st boss, lol). Trying to learn to play Stylishly (it’ll be a while, heh)

Alone in the Dark, 1, 2 & 3 are definitely old games - only discovered recently though. Now that I know how to kick, can def. die fewer times. DOS controls are wonky, still, must say the 1st game does some pretty good and mega creepy camera angles.


i had 80some games installed on one of my drives… then i accidentally kinda deleted them :grimacing: then i’ve tried to remember some of them, while decided to make my install base smaller, and adding a "to play next"tag on steam in order to help keep poke me in their direction…
theeeen ofc Grim Dawn Forgotten Gods happened… aaand i might have “forgot” all about those again anyway atm :sweat_smile:
anyway, my current list is as follows (in no particular order):
“to play next”

  • The Dream Machine
  • Enslaved Odyssey to the West
  • Goetia
  • Little Nightmares
  • Primordia
  • Quantum Conundrum

other installed “to play some time” games:

  • Dead Cells (someone really wants me to finish this :blush:)
  • A Hat in Time (i should probably see about finishing this at some point lol)
  • 100% Orange Juice (for board games group)
  • Armello (another for board games group)
  • Battlefleet Gothic Armada
  • The Cave
  • The Descendant
  • Enderal Forgotten Stories
  • Gremlins (for board games groupto the whims of her royal majesty the birthday (devil) queen :fire:)
  • Highlands
  • Last Day of June (would probably not take long to finish the missing buuut the gaming mind is a fickle bastard)
  • The Last Tinker City of Colors
  • Marlow Briggs
  • Mega Man Legacy Collection (if i start to play this then maybe somebody will poke me less about finishing dead cells :smile:)
  • Minit
  • Murdered Soul Suspect
  • Shadwen
  • Song of the Deep (another one got started on but got otherwise preoccupied)
  • Speedrunners (again, to play with “peeps”)
  • Sundered
  • Ticket to Ride (here solely to get bested by Fraggles)
  • Valiant Hearts The Great War
  • Warden Melody of the Undergrowth
  • Willy-Nilly Knight

^not counting GoG games (might or might not include Bloodlines Masquerade again atm :yum:) and Origin games or some Blizzard stuff i’ve got too…
fck me… now that i think about it the game drives is just one giant busy calendar list :dizzy_face:

^^also not counting games i should play, games i (also) “want” to play, or games recently bought -for either of the 2 previous mentioned reasons, but just didn’t install, because “already busy with X/Grim Dawn” :joy:



I always put it off, because when I was a kid I only played the first one and now I’m scared to finish the first 6 all together in the Legacy Collection. For some reason I tie this series to unclosed chapter in my life that I wish will never end.

Then of course after this I need to do the next good Megaman, which is 20xx :smiley:
Go play Dead Cells @Gnuffi!


There are so many old games that I wanted to play and basically forgot about.

I always read through https://www.reddit.com/r/patientgamers/ and they tend to remind me of what I’ve missed.

At the moment I’m playing through good/bad SNES games and Crusader Kings 2.

@CptMold Capt You scary with how fast you liked it.




Coincidence? This is way overpriced, but those memories…


Depends on what do you mean by old?

Recently started to play Dead Cells and Vermintide 2 again but that’s hardly old games just that i’ve took a break from them .

Thinking of replaying Darkest Dungeon again since even with 100hours in it i never managed to once beat it fully :confused: But i need to save up some cash for expansions i guess to make it more interesting.

Also thinking of replaying 1st and 3rd Dark Souls ( for who knows which time now but i always find wanting to come back to them after a break , just to experience world and struggle again) though i do not think i iwll have time to do that anytime soon. Just a thought.

I have few games which been in my backlog for years now but they are mostly garbage acquired while i was into buying lots of cheap bundles … i feel like i need to give them a go even though i’m pretty sure they will suck balls.

Ah yes and also been wanting to replay Grim Dawn but have same situation as with Darkest Dungeon. I fell like i need to get expansions for that to be worthwhile.


I decided to replay Punch Out NES on the Wii U Virtual Console about a month ago, and, let me tell you, it is HARD. The first few fights were a cakewalk, then I had to use save-states to constantly retry against Bald Bull. Then I got to the Piston Honda rematch, made no progress for an hour, and gave up.


Once I graduate, I am going to go back down into my basement dig out my old consoles and do 3 things:

  1. I am going to finally beat Pickmin (1 of course)
  2. Look through the other games and decide if I want to play Turok 2 or the Star Wars battlefront games more… OH! or Sly Cooper.

I remember those games. Someone in my family still has them. I enjoyed them (never beat either unfortunately). Too bad the latest game to bear the Pikmin game really…isn’t…


I just checked, I’ve got Pikmin 2. no idea about the first one.


Just listening to a Podcast about SOTN…probably going to have to play this for the bazillionth time…Crissaegrim farming RNG please be good to me…and then damnit probably Super Metroid…

Games are undeniably awesome…old or otherwise.

One of the rare arcade games that I’ve actually finished…sadly no crowd whilst doing it though.


I wasn’t there image




Pikmin 2 is super fun (plus it has co-op). Not to mention it is apparently really rare now.

Color me jealous :wink:


Well I don’t have anything to play it on currently sooo.


I think I have that game on Wii…

I don’t think it’s super rare on Wii, since it was in a NIntendo Selects listing (It’s what I have):
