The Best Classic Games That Still Hold Up Today - Steam Punks

Jess and Ed pull up some old favourites and let you know which old games they still love to play, from Heroes of Might & Magic III to Quest For Glory. Is your favourite mentioned? Leave it in the comments!

In the latest episode of GameSpot's weekly PC show Steam Punks, Jess and Ed talk about some of their favourite old PC games and discuss why they still hold up today.

Watch the video above to see Jess and Ed talk about games like the adventure game/RPG hybrid Quest for Glory series, the original RollerCoaster Tycoon, Jordan Mechner's The Last Express from 1996, and 1999's excellent strategy game Heroes of Might & Magic III. Ed also talks about why he believes the original Fallout game is the best in the franchise.

Despite their dated graphics and systems, these games are still worth your time in 2018 (though whether or not you have time to play them with all the big new releases coming up is another matter). All of them are available on GOG.com, where you can get them without any DRM. Classic games are also available on stores like Steam and other digital storefronts.

Jess and Ed also answer your questions about last week's Steam Punks where they talked about about the always controversial loot boxes and microtransactions.

Steam Punks airs every Monday on GameSpot. What are some of your favourite old PC games? Let us know in the comments below!

For those people who liked Quest for Glory, give Hero-U a shot.

I did, didn't enjoy it as much though. I didn't actually care for the whole Harry Potter-esque academy thing, I prefer the adventure theme.

Most of Square Enix’s legacy library - that’s why they go for $16 to $20 no matter what platform they’re on.

The talk of "Quest for Glory" and "The Last Express" really reminds me just how good the new "The Art of Point and Click Adventures" from Bitmap Books is.
