"The thing about Delta Force which made it stand out from the crowd when it came out back in 1998 was that it doesn't use pixels... it uses Vauxhalls"

...

lol.

-EDIT-  "It stands for Volumetric Piss".

further lol.

Multiplayer was pretty awesome for this game. It is also the first game to have bullet drop.

This game looks excellent and I like the aiming method; so some other game suggestions include Axelay [1992] and M.U.S.H.A. [1990].

I'm really enjoying the Random Encounters. A lot of good memories!

I dug out some old games to suggest. Nocturne, Diciples, Heroes of Might and Magic.

fun old-school tactical shooter and the best in the series until Black Hawk Down IMO. you can get the entire series for like 20 bucks at GameStop or on Steam

This show is really growing on me. It would be cool if you did a series of games to show the advancements between the games and the years that they where released.

I first got a Demo of this game on a CD from PC Gamer.  I then had to save allowance money for a few months to buy the full version.  Spent so much time playing this and the original Rainbow Six.  Ahhh, those were the days.

Games were more brutal back then. The screams your enemies make when you shoot them haunts me till this day.

I sold this game back in the day when I was working with BABBAGE'S, GameStop's ORIGINAL Company name! I played the hell out of this game and you want to talk about an disappointing ending... Its the classic "You did a great job. Take care soldier." ending! =O I remember being ShOcKeD when this happened to me as a teenager! The game itself was WAY ahead of its time! I like to think of it as the ORIGINAL of Battlefield 1942 style games! The sniping was sick too! Awesome they are talking about this game!!!

@middleman102002 I think they are in the podcast room, I suspect it's audio mixing equipment or something similar.

@dannyodwyer @JDFS  I would imagine that Johnny is quite happy that he has missed a fair few classic games..... after all how gutted would a true gamer be to find out that he had played every classic game and there were no surprises left in his gaming career??  i know i would be quite pissed off.  Im quite happy with the fact that im nearly 40 and still find games that i missed first time round  and i started out with an Atari 2600  :)

@CaesarIIII @mechberg I assure you, this game was chock full of racists. I used to regularly play with someone who called himself "Klu Klux Klam." Glory days.
