I would go with a PS2 or GameCube or XBOX and a component cable if you can.
You can still do netplay for all 3 systems via private servers. There's a wealth of games to pick from on each and bar GameCube most are very affordable. _________________ "A man is but the product of his thoughts - what he thinks, he becomes." - Mahatma Gandhi

Get Diablo 1 on the platform it was met for: the pc.
Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and 3
Doom I and II
Clivebarker's Undying: A VERY underrated, awesome horror themed fps. It uses the HL1 engine, you should definitely check it without a doubt. One of the best games no one ever played.
Heretic and Hexen-excellent medieval themed doom clones with awesome music
Might and Magic VI: Mandate of Heaven
Might and Magic V: Darkside of Xeen

There is a program for newer versions of Windows which allows you to play old PC games that required DOS to run. Some of the better known titles include but not limited to Doom (I, II, SE.etc), Quake, Duke Nukem 3d, Warcraft I & II, Wolfenstein 3d, Panzer General, Sim City and the list could go on and on. The program is called DOSBox and is free to download and do to it as you wish as it is open source. I have successfully run Doom, Warcraft 2, Duke 3d, Wolf 3d and other titles I haven't played for 12+ years before getting the program. The website is : www.dosbox.com and if you need any assistance, I'll be happy to walk you through it IF you have a Windows based PC _________________ When u hit the walls of sanity, u have no-where to go....
Hey guitarman2010, I have DOSBox and XP Service Pack 3 and I can't make head nor tail of it, lol.
I remember something about mounting but that's honestly all I remember as I kinda stopped bothering because it got confusing and frustrating. _________________ www.wrongplanet.net/postp5013377.html&highlight=#5013377
