    Hi,

    Does anyone have any hidden gems they want to share? They can be PC or Mac games, please no console games. They must also be at least 5 years old. Freeware games would be preferred, but they can be shareware, commercial, nagware, or anything of the sort (bonus points if it's abandonware) ;). By hidden gems, I mean the REALLY hidden ones. Some examples are Re-Volt, Otto Matic and Jammin' Racer. And if you can, please attach screenshots.

    Much thanks!

    Lemmings, now that is a classic!

    I've never played the 3D versions, however there is a great remake of the classic Lemmings game for the PSP.

    Age of empire had some awesome ones too, the best one I would say is how the creators even put in a mention for those that have passed away,

    Start a single player game in the campaigns section. Play the Ascent of Egypt Learning Campaign untill you reach the Trade scenario. If you want to view it the hard way, send units to the very south corner of the map. To view the egg the easy way, hit enter, type "Reveal Map" without quotes, hit enter twice, type "No Fog" without quotes, and hit enter. This should have revealed the entire map and removed the fog of war. View the southern corner of the map, and written in sand are the letters "RIP."

    Here is some more for that game
    1. Hit enter for the chat box.
    2. Type "pow big mamma" for a deadly baby on a tricycle.
    3. Type "stormbilly" for a futuristic robot with lasers.
    4. Type "dark rain" to have improved archers turn into trees to hide.
    5. Type "Convert This!" and priests attack with lightning.
    6. Type "king arthur" to change birds into dragons.
    7. Type "grantlinkspence" to turn animals into animal kings.

    a game that puts a baby on a trike for use in war has gotta be a good one lol

    Sorry, what I meant was any actual games that are hidden gems themselves, not the hidden gems inside games. I explained that in a little bit of a confusing way.

    Thanks!

    behind you (or not?)
    Perfect Dark is pretty good. It's for Nintento 64 and Xbox 360, but both can be emulated (Nintendo 64 is almost flawless even on weak hardware, can be even controlled by keyboard/mouse if you use 1964 GE/PD. Xbox 360 emulation somehow works, but it's not flawless)
