    Default reccommend me some awesome PC games from the 90s

    my computer isn't a gaming computer by today's standards; I imagine it would have a lot of trouble playing L4D or Half Life 2 even. It's ridden with spyware, lags, blah blah. So I'm catching up on old games that I used to play. Stuff I'm playing/have just played include:

    C&C Red Alert
    Starcraft, Brood War
    Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines
    Populous: The Beginning
    Need For Speed: Underground
    Half Life
    Quake 2
    Duke Nukem 3d
    GTA 2, 3, Vice City (San Andreas gave me some trouble)
    Simcity 3000
    Tomb Raider 2
    Final Fantasy 7
    Diablo 2
    Darkstone


    could you recommend me good games that were released around that period (so that my poor sad computer can handle them)?

    Shogun, total war.

    No mention of any roleplay games on your list, be if you fancy giving one a try, I'd recommend Planescape:Torment.

    Escape Velocity.
    Oregon Trail.
    Doom 1 & 2.
    X-Plane 3.
    Dogfight City.
    Spectre.
    WarCraft 1 & 2/BNE.

    P.S. Using some emulators (SNES, NES, Sega Genesis etc.) will open the door to thousands of more games.

    Warcraft 2- Warcraft 2 Full Free Game Download - Warcraft 2 - PixelRage Download

    That's the full game... just gotta click on WAR2 in the folder after you unzip it. The file (which I got from there) doesn't have any viruses. I scanned it. Saves work, pretty much everything works for single player.

    RTS:
    Dune 2, first of its kind. (-> Command and Conquer, Red Alert)
    Dark Reign, great multiplayer aspect for 1on1, first RTS to involve more advanced movement tactics, such as advanced pathings.

    Adventure:
    Quest for Glory 4, best of the qfg series in my opinion, and best adventure ever to be made, first adventure to include well done voices. John-Rhys Davies as the narrator ftw! (If you have cd version at least).
    Personally really liked Indiana Jones 4, fate of atlantis as well
    Other adventures of sierra all fun too.

    Fps:
    Action Quake 2 - Best multiplayer mod ever made, in my opinion. Based on quake 2 engine, but nothing like it. It's the fastest multiplayer first person shooter ever created. Houses deathmatches as well as teamplay. Next to WoW, this is the game I spent most time on. I hear there are still some servers active if you look hard enough.

    Simulation:
    Colonization, Civilization.
    Transport Tycoon, god knows how much time I spent on this game (Personally prefer the classic version over the deluxe version).

    RPG's:
    Arcanum - Totally awesome storyline, many different endings, ability to be just about anything you want to be and still beat the game. (ie. possible to finish the game with only 3 kills / Pacifist. Although not recommended unless you finished the game a few times already. :p )
    Fallout/Fallout 2 - Much like Arcanum.
    Diablo, Diablo 2, Diablo 2 LoD expansion. For a game that doesn't change much and rarily has much to offer, it's surprisingly addictive and fun to play.

    Racing(ish)/Arcade
    Carmageddon - Funsies
    Grand Theft Auto 1+2
