Of the games you enjoyed playing when you were younger, which of them would you like to play the most today - and why?

I played commander keen when I was young and I do think I'd like to play it again now. It is probably mainly for the nostalgia, but I also did think it was genuinely a good game with mazes for you to find your way through. I wouldn't know of course how I felt about it now, seeing that I haven't played it for years.

What I did play as a child and still play is the SIMS. This one is very easy for me to explain: it's a sandbox and open world. So now I play different things than I did as a child. It's simply a game where your interest determines what direction the games takes. And I love the ability to build and customize everything to your liking. That's also why I still play sims 3 and haven't shifted to sims 4. They took away a lot of the customization options.

This thread reminded me of RuneScape, which is an MMORPG. I recently started playing it again out of nostalgia, and, while it doesn't have quite the same appeal as it once did, there's still a certain charm to it.

I'd really like to play Albion, Arcanum, and/or Final Fantasy VII again at some stage. The respective story lines were quite intriguing and I remember enjoying every minute of gameplay. These were also some of the games that got me interested in RPGs.

Another game is Heroes of Might & Magic III (and IV to an extent). I have fond memories of playing both games with my brothers and two of my cousins.
