For all those oldie goldies, cartridges, CDs, and games that you remember but have since been lost to planned redundancy, discontinued product lines, sites being shut down, just generally losing it, or you only caught a glimpse of it before it was swept away and now are seeking it again. AKA you want a game found that you can no longer get or one you kinda only vaguely remember and need help finding the SAUCE.

I'll start it off: Before the 2012 remake there was a fan made version of XCOM; it had mid 2000s 3D top down graphics, was more grounded in irl military equipment in terms of looks and effects, entirely free, and was rebranded as something else which I have entirely forgotten and why I need help finding it since these days searching for "Xcom fan game" usually nets all the spinoffs since the 2012 remake(which is kinda garbo in my opinion) or Xenonauts. So does anyone know which game I'm talking about? I remember it was very oversaturated with the colour green if that's any help at all.

(cont) One of the things I remember most about this game is that the USA is a third world country in it due to their collapse due to internal contradictions (game is set in 2050s or so IIRC) and the current third world are the global hegemons. Which I think is a cool idea, especially since the lore was written up in the early 2000s when American collapse didn't seem quite so obvious.

You might also want to check out Xpirates which is another fun freeware XCOM clone.

I remember playing a Russian version of Jagged Alliance a few years ago. It uses 2.5-3D graphics and a system of pause anytime combat. It got lost when my old potato finally died.

Currently playing Wolfenstein (2009), and it is truly a masterpiece.

Dafuq. I remember it as the only shitty Wolfenstein installation (I'm a huge fan of both Return to Castle Wolfenstein and The New Order).

What do you like about it?

There was an arcade game that I emulated in my childhood and played with my siblings.
I always had trouble finding the name, but it turns out it was King of Monsters 2. The first game doesn't feature side-scrolling beat 'em up levels so I always ended up thinking this wasn't the game but yeah, that's the one. It was very fun to play in co-op mode.

There was a free online car racing game from the mid to late 2000's. There were a bunch of big tracks, some of them had these ramps with rings you got to jump through. It was 3D. The music was pretty 80's synth and the whole aesthetic was very cool retro-futuristic, almost cyberpunk but not quite.

One of the tracks I remember was a desert track.

I tried to find this game on Miniclip, Armorgames but no luck so far (or maybe I actually scrolled through it by accident in the site catalogs/archives).

Link? No I doubt it. Seemed like an indie developer game. Very high quality though and free. With a GOAT tier soundtrack. Pretty sad that I never bookmarked the page or saved the link to my email account back when I played it all the time on my old computer in elementary and middle school.

Glad I could help. If you're looking for a nostalgia trip, Flashpoint has a huge amount of games from this era archived: https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/
