    I occasionally go back and play Space Empires III (1993), which is pretty much the first PC game I remember playing.

    I played the original Doom (1993) before Eternal was released.

    I speedrun Banjo Kazooie (1998) about once a year.

    Oldest that I still play actively? Doom (1993) and it's sequel, which are still brilliant to splitscreen with friends for a fun lazy game time.

    The other one is Populous: The Beginning (1998) which was probably the first sort of strategy / god game I'd ever played and I still enjoy playing it every so often, even if Age of Mythology takes it's place somedays.

    Some great games mentioned in this thread, I'm tempted to fire up some of the old snes titles now.

    The oldest I play regularly is Heroes of Might and Magic 2, I played through Might and Magic 7 recently too, with the patch for free mouse look it is still very playable.

    That said, HOMM 3 with the HOTA HD patch is a much better game. The AI becomes semi competent and not as easy to abuse.

    I still break out Knights of the Old Republic 1 (2003) and 2 (2004) when I'm feeling particularly nostalgic. The gameplay hasn't aged well, but the story lines and world-building are still top-notch.

    Kirby Super Star and Chrono Trigger

    I play a lot of JRPGs, and I'm often left thinking, "sure, that was good, but it was no Chrono Trigger!" I wonder if it's just the nostalgia goggles making me say that, so I've gone back to it at several stages in my life.

    It still holds up.
