My MechWarrior video Game collection

Postby Marack Drock » Sun Jun 12, 2016 11:11 am

So I have been a fan of MechWarrior since basically I could think. When I was 2 years old (1999) I played my first game ever, and that was MechWarrior 3 on a Microsoft Sidewinder Joystick, and I remember that the first mech I played was actually the Strider. I quickly became addicted to the Timber Wolf and it became basically my spirit animal (if I had one it wouldn't be an animal, it would be a Timber Wolf from MW). Since that time I have been obsessed with MechWarrior. When I was around 8 years old I made it a life goal to one day, collect every retail released MechWarrior game ever, and recently I completed that goal. I have managed to collect every single MechWarrior/Battletech PC that was a retail release. I am however missing a few online games (wish I had the files too) like Multiplayer BattleTech and such (I am on the hunt to get those games and possibly I will make custom boxes for them once I have the files and burn them to a CD or Floppy disc depending on how old they are).

Here it is though.

That's great! Say, how long did it take for you to collect all of them?

Nice collection!

One of my great regrets in life is that I never did keep the boxes of my games old. :( Just the original Jewel Cases.

That's an awesome collection, Mech3 is your favorite? I could never get that game to work on my computer :/ As for the online multiplayer game, we have a working version of Mechwarrior 2's NETMECH here on the site if that's what you're looking for, and I manage the Facebook page (not much activity going on).
Always up for a Netmech game, PM me.

I managed to get Mech3 working on my windows 10 gaming machine just the other day. Thing is, I think modern day processors are too fast, and so what I ended up seeing was flying tanks (literally). I also run an Nvidia card, which I think works better for Mech3 than AMD (I recall installing mech3 on my amd laptop, and yeah, the graphics didn't work right).

Mechwarrior 3 is my favorite. It was actually the very first game I ever played as well. I now own 3 boxed copies of it, minus the Gold Edition.

The complete collection. I realized I had not actually obtained NetMech boxed.

Very nice!

Beautiful.

Let me know when you're on. I'd like to get some games going. I've been away for like ten years.
