    Oh Oh Oh I know I know!!!
    /puts hand up

    Teen Agent was an awesome point and click game, pity I only had the shareware as a kid .

    Obviously everyone knows about Leisure Suit Larry, so there's no point in mentioning that one.

    Here is my list of old school retro's that you can check out:

    1. Full Throttle

    Originally released by LucasArts and within the last few years it was remastered graphically and tweaked, but other than that nothing changed, it was still the same game we used to know back in '95.

    2. Day of the Tentacle

    Unfortunately it was one of the few games I played in Shareware mode so I couldn't enjoy the full aspect of this.

    3. The Monkey Island series (OF COURSE)

    Who didn't play this, unless you weren't around back then.

    This one is off topic and hasn't been officially announced on here yet.................. I think.

    Anywho Tim Schafer requested to have one of his new developments backed on a budget of $400 000, which ended up being
    $3 336 371 US <------- , we are about to see a come back from Tim Schafer and his team on a release of Double Fine Adventure. So prep yourselves for some actual excitement and something worth while.

    You can get this for free if you create a GOG account if you want to fill the void from your childhood

    Or you can download it for free from Home of the Under Dogs or www.abandongames.com

    These are both legit sites and we have been finding stuff on there for years to add to DosBox

    Cool, I've also found Abandonia to be quite good for finding decent abandonware.

    Azimuth, y u no mention Nox? It's an amazing old-school hack 'n slash title, and in my opinion, even better than Diablo 2.

    Is Nox free? If not, you know why she didn't include it in her list of free retro games.

    Would Warzone 2100 be considered sufficiently ....uh....retro?

    Uh, oops. Missed the free part.

    Thought it was just random retro games.

    This is an awesome page. I am going to download some of these tonight and get cracking on some old-school games.
    That's what she said.
