Halo Zero. The Fall of Reach, old-school style. Some plucky French coders have borrowed a page from Codename: Gordon, the side-scrolling homage to Half-Life. As a result, Master Chief and his cohorts are now fighting the Covenant in 16-bit, 2D graphics. PC download only - though Mac owners at least have Boot Camp to avoid waiting for an OS X port. via Aeropause

At least the sprites look better than the real ones from Marathon :)

Hehe. Reminds me of Doom: The Roguelike, which goes a step further and does the thing in ascii.

Bardic, that has got to be more fun than the FPS boardgame.

Well, the Pac-man boardgame wasn't so hot either.

Heh, Doom actually is a boardgame these days. It's basically a boardgame simulation of the computer game - right down to the med packs and ammo pickups :-)
I have a set, but I've never played it, so can't answer as to the fun factor :)

I remember playing the Pac-man boardgame for many many hours.

I snuck this onto the build for all the office PCs in my group earlier this year. Easter egg!
