You know how it feels when I want to buy a few games, but have absolutely no money to do so..?

I'd say there's loads of great old games but one that is particularily good is Myth II. There's lots of expansions and 3rd party maps and is still being well supported today. There was even yet another new game patch on 29/8/03! It's about £4.00 here (about $6.30)

Fade To Black.

That's all I can say. The grandfather of Tomb Raider, I love this game to death. I'm so happy I got sent a copy of it, it really warms the cockles of my heart.

I wouldn't really compare it to Tomb Raider, other than the fact that it is 3rd person.

Btw, that game is pretty much a sequel to the great 2d platform/puzzle game Flashback (whice was a pseudo sequel to Out of This World).

Grim Fandango (obviously).

Other than the best game ever, the 2 Fallouts can be had for cheap if you're lucky, and they are 10 pounds of fun in a 5 pound bag.

My favorite bargin games thus far have been:

AvP2 + Expansion.
Diablo II + Expansion - While they were $30 collectively, the game was well worth it.
Black & White
Max Payne (Add the KungFu mod and it is what Enter the Matrix should've been)

Klutzon, you are my new best friend; Fade to Black was my favorite game up until HL was released. It was a great game, and very challenging at times. What I wouldn't give to play it again; My brother loaned it to a friend, whom moved and never returned it.

Where did you see Neverwinter Nights for a bargain bin price? That game is still being sold for $30 at comp usa and bestbuy.

EDIT: Nevermind, they must have lowered the price as I see it is now at $19.99.
