    That's just what I said, but I also said that I wanted the same gameplay/set up as seen in Wing Commander and Starlancer, perhaps one worked by Chris and Erin Roberts, the creators of both.

    I used to have Wing Commander games on PC but in those days you had to do a lot of tweaking to get them to play, if at all as different hardware caused the game to do different things. GOG is fantastic for older games. Oh hell those games taught me a lot about tweaking software and batch files hehe.

    Emm386 you will live on forever.

    Oh by the way, I came across this concept for a carrier ship in said Star Trek fighter combat game:

    Yesterday I watched the trailers for Wing Commander 3-5, and wow, they got together an amazing cast for live action scenes in those games.

    I found a dusty old Quicktime VR game Not actual VR but that's what the software was called. "In The First Degree" I used to play the hell of that game. It had different endings.

    Ahh, Highmem and extended memory. Yeah, I remember desperately trying to get that to work in order to play Wolfenstein 3D. And then I had a lot of fun trying to get the high-res mode in the original Nascar Racing by Papyrus to work. Fun times.

    OMG I remember Nascar Racing....... Played that on a 486 DX2 100 machine and those were fun times. Had an S3 VESA card for all my graphics needs.

    Also played the heck out of games like Crusader No Remorse, and Crusader No Regret. Both games had amazing soundtracks.

    Even with a VESA compliant card, getting things like that game to run were quite tricky. Very particular in their demands. Talk about patience we had :D I think it was only much later when I had a better computer that I was able to leverage it for the maximum experience.

    Same...... I played it as best I could but when I got a later machine with much better graphics I tried it again and it felt much improved. A lot of the old DOS / windows games ran better once I had upped my hardware.

    BLOOD was another game that benefited from a better graphics card.

    A game in which I paid for ONE TIME, was complete, didn't have to be updated constantly, and was almost endlessly replayable on multiple devices.

    Game developers pretending the Internet doesn't exist and going back to the days when they had to try to make sure that what they shipped was complete in programming and QA - because the only way they could fix it after it shipped, if it wasn't, was the expense of recall/replacement.

    There were still problems back then, from time to time, but it was a LOT better than the situation now, where the developers rip half of the elements back out of a game to sell you as extra DLC, and they don't care if it isn't even finished because they can supposedly patch it through your Internet connection after you've got it.

    The best game ever was the 3D splatter gore fest Blood, so for me, an update of this. A massive map with more interaction, more atmosphere, and horror references.

    A close second to this would be Dizzy, the adventurous egg character, in a new spectrum style platform adventure, but full of nostalgia for the original games.

    Thirdly. A full on transport simulator. Trains, trams. Buses. Planes, boats. With a comprehensive world editor.

    Ultimate game for me

    GTA6 with multiple cities to explore, more characters to play, ability to explore every building.

    Another dead space game for this generation of consoles.

    It's weird, but I feel like the GTA games suffer from small-universe syndrome. Despite there being so many different places they could set them as far as the U.S goes, as of late it's been either Liberty City or San Andreas between the two last generations. You would think that there'd be more to explore. Heck, even setting it in Hawaii would be nice.

    My ultimate dream video game would basically be a holodeck.
