What Classic Games Draw you Back?

As I downloaded and installed some Duke Nukem 3d (because I never got to play much of that gme growing up) I was thinking how there are very few games that can stand the test of time. Even the ones that were innovating and unique for their time, as improvements over the years made their older counterparts obsolete, I don't think I could see anyone booting up Civilization 1 if only for a few minutes before the novealty wears off (if you could even boot it up to begin with.) So I'm curious as to what older games you find yourself coming back to again and again or could go back to again despite thinking at one point you were done with them forever.

For me it's Doom, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Gunstar Heroes, Sonic, The Longest Journey, Half-Life, and Baldur's Gate 2 I think sums it up for me. No matter what I'll have a nostalgia moment where I find myself going back to these games and maybe even play through them yet again.

Is the new one out yet? An ex of mine is lead designer but you can tell I haven't spoken to him much lately. xD

Hahahah epic. I agree with him kinda; that I would have preferred a new strategy game. But he doesn't understand. That wouldn't sell well at Walmart. That's all that counts these days and FPSers sell.

unless you're starcraft, civilization, or command and conquer.

Yeah but compared to how many FPS games on the same shelves? The publishers don't like to gamble, sadly. ;.;
