I see you could have gotten Moto Racer 1, 2 & 3 for under $5. Now they are back up to $6 each for 1 & 2 and $10 for 3. Hope some people jumped on that. I was too late.

I was always partial to the Microsoft series from 20 years ago:

Motocross Madness ( 1998 )
Motocross Madness 2 ( 2000 )

Monster Truck Madness ( 1996 )
Monster Truck Madness 2 ( 1999 )

Midtown Madness ( 1999 ) Chicago
Midtown Madness 2 ( 2000 ) London & San Francisco
Midtown Madness 3 ( 2003 ) Paris & Washington DC Xbox only

Sadly these are not on Steam or GoG.

I realized in the last minute that they had all of 'em for sale and expanded my library a little bit; I vaguely remember having played Nr. 2, back in the days, but not much more - managed to complete it in a couple of hours, was good fun (not as fun as the first one) - Nr. 3 is quite different in terms of... just about everything (physics/handling/speed/'realism')

the moment I fired up Nr. 3, however, I was instantly reminded that I used to play Motocross Madness 1 & 2 (and also Monster Truck Madness 1 & 2), also with a joystick (keep in mind, I was active C64/Amiga user up to and including 1996 and thus I was used to having a joystick for everything), as sucn when moving on to PC, realizing that most games only used keyboard (I started playing Quake with keyboard only, since I excelled at Doom 2 using that same method, soon, however, I learned of the power of mouse-look), but there were some games that actually played better with a joystick - mainly the Star Wars "X-Wing/Tie-Fighter" -games (and Terminal Velocity), but also racing games! and as PC-joysticks were analogue (rather than digital) in their input, I was able to control vehicles in ways I had never done before (I have played plenty of flight-simulators using digital joysticks and keyboard - fortunately they have been designed with this in mind, but the difference between analogue and digital input, when it comes to fine manouvering is... well... noticeable ^^)

when Monster Truck Madness first hit the shelves, I played it until the wee hours of the morning... I was in mah late teens and living with a friend, having wanted a R/C car my entire life, but never having been able to afford one; Monster Truck Madness was the closest thing I'd ever come to having 'a real session with a R/C car', sure it might not be nearly as fun as IRL (I wouldn't know... still ain't been able to afford one, 'cause now I'm an adult and I want the adult version and these days, apparently, R/C cars cost just about as much as a real car,,, but I digress)

Monster Truck Madness felt just like having my own R/C car, driving on awesome tracks without having to worry about damages

I also vividly remember Motocross Madness 1 & 2, since i was living in a dormitory at the time and they were playable via LAN (at least Nr. 2) and had some amazing (once again, Nr. 2 is the one I remember the most vividly/fondly) open terrain to drive around and do all sorts of crazy stunts and tricks with your friends

now, once again, back when 'I was younger', I did have a moped/motocross ('t was some Italian brand, whose name eludes me) - and I used to drive that out in the woods and fields, jumping and doing all kinds of crazy tricks, until finally about two years down the line, I was clearing a waaay too big jump for a moped and broke off the 'handle bar' (this was actually the second moped I crashed - at around the age of eight, I also managed to crash... quite a lot worse than my second crash and that bike never saw the light of day again... ('t was mah older brothers'))

then again... mopeds were *not* designed for the things I put them through... as such Motocross Madness 1 & 2 tapped into my 'free roaming Motocross -style in the country, doing crazy stunts' -nerve and boy did I get some things out of the system... ^^

Midtown Madness -series came about when I 'was out of the loop', GTA III (and VC) had already hit the shelves by the time I 'returned' and... well, having spent a few minutes trying to run people over in Midtown Madness, I realized that GTA probably was more up mah alley

of course, these days what with GTA V (not to mention the bikes of Vice City (I do have 'a couple' of stunt-videos uploaded to youtube from 'back in the days' when I was stunting around VC like nobody's biz) - and of course GTA: SA deserves a shout-out... point being; these days there's plenty of alternatives to cater to that particular 'niche' of racing (GTA Online has... everything), but I (like many others), usually, have a pretty tight schedule and as such, whenever I have the Need for Speed, I'll just boot up something quick, play a few laps and then quit (this is also how I play Mario Kart) and as such older games with faster loading-times and less.... 'fluff', feel more accessible

of course, if I could manage to get a hold of a copy of Motocross Madness 2 (and get it running), it'd be... pretty awesome on my 50".... *grumble* eBay, here I come... *sigh*...

I guess one of us should post the Microsoft Games we talked about in the Classic PC Games thread since GoG.com doesn't carry them. Sadly I guess Microsoft doesn't care and they'll probably end up as some Xbox game.

I strongly recommend using Free Space Open (Installer) [FSO], if you want to properly enjoy the Freespace games:

http://www.fsoinstaller.com/

also, if you haven't already, get yourselves a joystick (pick one up at a flea-market, or similar if you don't wanna spend hundreds of dollars getting one of 'em fancy-sticks. My Logitech Extreme 3D Pro cost me about $4) and enjoy the freedom of Freespace (and/or its predecessors Descent 1-3)

Freespace 2 is free on GOG

On Windows 10 I can so far only make it run properly in Win95 compatibility mode and with resolution forced to 640x480 (and rebooting after these changes).

I see no way of changing resolution in the game's Options menu, the menual only mentions a first launch configuration window that I never got.

I strongly recommend using Free Space Open (Installer) [FSO], if you want to properly enjoy the Freespace games:

Seems that requires Java on your computer.
