I just had a very recent one of these

I am a VERY oldtime PC gamer, and dear god, this was an epic return of one of my old favorites

StarTopia is that game

 

an old Space Sim with the ultimate twist and mix of managing a colony of weird aliens. Keeping them happy with entertainment, incarcerating the ones sent in as convicts, aiding those in medical need to sometimes avoid one turning into a beetle-monster that wreaks a few people, and even avoiding bombs going off in the wrong places

 

Well, that was one of mine, along with System Shock 2 but this one even I did not expect.

Age of Empires II.

Kind of wish they had the original, but that's as close as it gets.

None of the games I played in my childhood are actually on steam *cough* backyard sports games *cough*, but I recently found my self playing the original XCOM which was pretty old, It's a lot of fun, I'm sure I would have failed to comprehend it during my early childhood though

No games from my childhood have been revived by Steam. We could change this if they'd release X-Men vs. Street Fighter on Steam as an HD remake...


Hi, I'm a jerk who likes cats. Also kinda decent with Engineer I guess? I don't know.

Throughout my childhood I pretty much only played Nintendo games, and we all know those are never going on steam.

Reboot is one thing, Revived is another
