I have 65 games in my GoG library, and I think I only bought like 10 of them. All the rest have been give aways.

Eye of the Beholder I & II are timeless classics.
I remember playing the first one on a 286 @ 10MHz with 1MB of RAM back in the day.
I like that the GOG page suggests a 1.8GHz CPU with 1GB RAM to play it today...

Just grabbed EotB trilogy and bought the DragonLance trilogy too. I played these games while I was a teen on a 80386 and 486 DX2-66, at the time. Pure nostalgia! Couldn't resist!

Probably because of DOS Box.

Talking about GoG... It seems, but I'm not sure what to make of that, that one of the threads requesting a Linux port of the GoG Galaxy client just got changed to "In progress"... What does that could mean?

I'm pretty sure I played it on an Amiga 500 @ 7MHz with 512 KB of RAM. Did I win?

You can use ScummVM for the first two to play it on your toaster.

I win ! I played the two first dragonlance games on a commodore 64 @ 1 mhz. On 2 two faced floppies each ! The Dark Queen of Krynn was not ported to C64.

I saw a friend playing the first Eye of Beholder (And maybe the second one) on an Amiga too. I was very impressed by the game.

I still want an Amiga 500 !

Yeah... Talking about old hardware... Did I mentionned that I have played The Bard's Tale and Wizardry on an Apple IIE, with the green monochrome screen?

Anybody on a VIC-20?

I learned a little bit of LOGO at the primary school. They had VIC-20s.
