    Good riddance. Wish I'd done it about a year ago.

    Early COD single player campaigns were good fun, along with early Splinter Cell games.
    I couldn't get into Thief, but a lot of people liked that at the time.

    Regrettably my Single player games became very rare from 2005.
    I could give you a tonne of 90s games though

    Capcom Collection - Steam
    Megadrive Collection - Steam
    Command & Conquer series - Origin
    Gothic 1&2 - Steam & GoG - Get the Steam version as I have had issues running the GoG versions
    Sacred Gold - Steam
    Spellforce 1&2 - Steam
    Thief 1, 2 & Deadly Shadows - Steam & GoG
    Deus Ex - Steam & Gog
    System Shock 2 - Steam & GoG
    Sin - Steam
    Ghost Recon & Rainbow Six (Original games) - Steam & GoG
    TRON 2.0 - Steam
    Delta Force series including Extreme - Steam
    Elder Scrolls Morrowind & Oblivion - Steam - Moroblivion is now complete so you can run Morrowind in Oblivion with all the quest markers and nice visuals
    Arx Fatalis - Steam
    RUNE Classic - Steam
    Strife - Veteran Edition - Steam
    Giants Citizen Kabuto - Steam & GoG
    Medal of Honor games including the reboot - Steam. Ran the reboot on a HP laptop when it was released no issues
    Baldurs Gate and all the other Black Isle games - Steam & GoG
    Lionheart - GoG - Similar to the Black Isle games and the way they play
    Redneck Rampage - GoG - You just got to play this one for kicks. It's really funny.
    Hidden & Dangerous 1&2 are excellent - Steam & GoG


    I would definitely scope through GoG catalogue of games as they do have stuff on there that you will be able to run and what isn't on Steam. Everything from Shooters to RPG's etc

    Also look into Emulation if you want really old stuff like C64, Spectrum, Megadrive, Amiga & Atari ST. A lot of games haven't aged well but there are plenty that have and will keep you entertained for a while. Turrican comes straight to mind with this is you like run n' gun games
