MW2 rings a bell. Of course this was yonks ago, so who knows. I just know there was a lot of Wolf vs Jade Falcon stuff going in the game.
Probably MW2 then as the game is about the Refusal War between Wolf and Jade Falcon.

Also the first CD game I had... for DOS!

If you still have the disc you can put it into a CD player for the soundtrack; its pretty awesome.
Nice. I'll have to see if I can dig up a CD somewhere. Maybe Ebay. I bet there's a Win98 emulator that can run it out there...

There are so many old games I'd love to have again, man. Emperor: Battle for Dune, for one. Warcraft 2 (never played 1).
An Empire Deluxe port is available on Steam now. Its pretty fleshed out, you can customize the hell out of it and the AI plays well. I might give that a go next.

Either that or CK2. While I cant rival Thanas' adventure, last time I played I ended up being an African princess that married the Welsh King, took over his kingdom after he died (as alas all of his heirs suffered horrible accidents) then went on to conquer the whole British Isles. Historical accuracy was kind of absent that game, but was a lot of fun. :lol:

I just finished Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It was... look, the game's absolutely gorgeous, the melee system is genuinely neat, and I love most of the attention-to-detail and attempts-at-realism aspects the developers included, but it somehow didn't really click. Possibly because the story feels like (and is, apparently) about 2/3rds complete? Anyway the game felt like less than the sum of its parts, if that makes sense.

I do unambiguously love Pebbles the horse, though.

Two Point Hospital is my current obsession. It's flawed, but still a lot of fun.
