Gaming was my life for as long as I've owned a computer which was back in 1992 if I remember correctly.  Oh the fun I had blasting Nazis in Wolfenstein 3D, slaying demons in Diabolo, conquering the world in Civilization II, ruling Europe in Castles II,  building woad raider armies in Age of Empires,  establishing cities in Simcity 2000, and fighting NOD in Command and Conquer and possibly best of all, building the Roman Empire with Centurion, Defend of Rome. Nowadays, I struggle to be entertained. The graphics are a million times better, but the gameplay and the charm is largely gone. Instead, I am left with "microtransactions" and "massive multiplayer games". I can no longer build up and rule my kingdom at my own pace, I must constantly worry about other players who have dumped $5000 into the game running my desmesne over. There are no charming, pixilated figures marching across the battlefield, I'm left with facebook games and apps and high resolution blood and gore sprayed across my screen.

I miss my youth.  Cry

I feel similarly, though I think I've mostly just lost interest, more than actively disliking what's currently available.

Anyway, here, have an old school hero, and cheer up  Grin

Yes. I remember sitting on my dad's lap watching him play Pirates! Gold on an old, weird-colored PC, and also games like Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat. I would later watch both of my parents play Diablo. All of which I soon started playing myself, as well as Warcraft I and Quake. This would go on to include Warcraft II, Age of Empires, Total Annihilation, Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Diablo II, Simcity 3000, etc.

PC gamer, born and raised. A shame how things have changed, although there seems to be some hope lately with throwbacks like Planetary Annihilation, Divinity: Original Sin, Pillars of Eternity, etc.

Finished up F.E.A.R. 2, what a great, and freaky game. F.E.A.R. 3 on tap, though I def think they blew it with this one, lousy level design, along with pretty unimaginative enemies, no real fear factor yet either. a real step backwards from 2 imo

PC gamer, born and raised. A shame how things have changed, although there seems to be some hope lately with throwbacks like Planetary Annihilation, Divinity: Original Sin, Pillars of Eternity, etc.

I played Shadow of the Horned Rat on the original PS but hated the controls.  Would have been so much funner on PC.  I played Pirates on C64...15 minutes at a time while waiting 45 min for the power supply top cool down in our un-airconditioned house.  

If you get the new version of Pirates, it's pretty much the same game with a few more ships and 10y r old graphics instead of 30 yr old.

For modern games, you might look at some of the Total War Series.  I haven't played Rome II but otherwise, all of them have been fun up to this point.  The original Shogun and Medieval still have graphics as pixellated as Japanese porn.  the new ones have spiffy new graphics but I find the gameplay every bit as fun.  With AOE, there is an updated AOE II available that has better graphics (sort of) and five new cultures, otherwise the same old game.  Rise of Nations has been re-released.  If Red Alert is ever re-released I will have a field day.  As for Diablo, Diablo 3 really isn't that bad.  It is not as life changing as Diablo II was, but not bad at all.

As for MMO games, I have a friend who plays World of Tanks and is at Tier 8 and doesn't spend any money.  If you just play it for the game and don't want to upgrade tanks with any degree of celerity it is totally playable w/o premium or gold round, etc.  In World of Warplanes I spend almost no money on it and still have fun.  It's just more of a grind than tanks unless you are really good. But regardless, some of my most fun games are in the low tiers anyways.

EDIT - You know, Warplanes really isn't more of a grind than tanks.  I just forget that I have been playing tanks for three years and warplanes less than one.

EDIT II - With Total War, if you are going to play Rome Total War you might look at the Rome Total Realism mod.  I tooled around on it a bit and it was pretty good.

I have played Rome Total War and Medieval Total War 2 with a ton of different mods. I love both of those games, but I have also played them into the ground. If they could beef up the AI, I would go right back to playing them.

Oh yeah, I bought the PS version of Shadow of the Horned Rat a while back and immediately got rid of it. The control design was the most awful thing they possibly could've done for a game like that. Made it practically impossible to multi-task, which was necessary to keep your units from getting wiped out.

And I actually have played the new Pirates. It wasn't bad, I need to buy it again.

I've a been diehard Total War fan since about '05 or '06. My favorites are Medieval II (with Grand Campaign Mod) and Shogun II (gameplay-wise the apex of the series IMO, and I personally like the historical Japanese setting). I have played all of them though, except for Rome II, and enjoy them all - even the original pixel-fest STW and MTW games.

As for Diablo, I've played the demo for Diablo 3 on the 360 and it was fun - reminded me of playing Diablo on the PS when I was younger at other people's houses. Still need to buy that, but I'm putting it off until the expansion comes out. Even though I never played before its removal, getting rid of the Auction House seems like a great choice for them that took perhaps too long.

If Red Alert were re-released, I would expect it to be free-to-play with microtransactions and/or DLC galore. EA is one of the worst offenders for this cash-cow necromancy nonsense. Just look at how they resurrected and then butchered Dungeon Keeper for iOS/Android.

Oh, and I played AOE2 in LAN parties to death with friends. It was great.

Sad How many College classes or assignments did I skip c. 1999-2000 because of playing AOE2 online with people. It was like I no sooner got over Goldeneye multiplayer, and here was a new devil to tempt me. Then TWINE and Perfect Dark after that. I was so weak.

I loved LAN parties.  I skipped countless college classes playing Red Alert in LAN parties. It was the first game that I learned to mod on.

I'm sure everyone would've liked LANing Total Annihilation. For its time, and with slight modifications, it was a massive-scale game that makes AOE2/RA2 look like a group of people playing tag. You could have hundreds and hundreds, even thousands, of units instead of however many it took to hit the 200-food (or equivalent resource) limit. This video does a decent job showing what I mean about the scale, although there were some huge maps recreating Earth that were just amazing to play on.

That was indeed a fantastic game. I am ashamed I failed to mention it.

Waiting for Awakening to arrive so I can finally play through it, then I'll get/beat DA2 soon. So a delay is good for me as it gives me time to catch up. Wink

Just beat Mass Effect 2 for the first time a few days ago. Oddly enough I played through the first one almost a year ago exactly. After DA: Awakening, I'll probably continue on to ME3.

I do rather like Bioware games. The emphasis on companions/relationships/romances is really nice.

Mass Effect 3 is beaten. A good trilogy. Now playing Dragon Age 2! Even though it sadly feels to have been a step back from DAO and Mass Effect in many ways for Bioware.

I concur! And it looks to be doing a good job of it so far from the gameplay footage we've seen.

Anyone here looking forward to the new Super Smash Brothers? Yoshi and Pikachu are my usual choices, but I'm very intrigued by Palutena's moveset.

Also, speaking of Palutena, I've been really loving Kid Icarus: Uprising lately. The greatest graphics I've ever seen on a handheld, great story & writing, and I love the character. While I like the basic idea of the controls for what you can do with Pit, I think they were really poorly mapped out on the 3DS. I think it would have done so much better on the Wii/Wii U.

Uprising is amazing, but be careful not to play it for too long. It can really hurt your hands. Everything about the game other than the way the controls are mapped on the 3DS/2DS is awesome.

And I really think this round of SSB could be the best yet. Hoping to have it on the Wii U and the 3DS.

I noticed that they really took the "Zero Suit" idea to heart when designing ZS Samus' alternate costume. Honestly, I'd preferred it if they hadn't given that outfit, but I guess they know sex sells, heh.

I noticed that they really took the "Zero Suit" idea to heart when designing ZS Samus' alternate costume. Honestly, I'd preferred it if they hadn't given that outfit, but I guess they know sex sells, heh.

Agreed. Full suit Samus supremacy.

Dragon Warrior IV

I also downloaded AD&D: Pool of Radiance for the NES, but I may play DW4 all the way through before I start it.

Your avatar pictures have been great, especially the metabble. Metalies/metal slimes are my favorite though.

Yep, although I didn't mind the SSBB Zero Suit that much.

If this leak is true, I'm also very interested in playing as the Duck Hunt Dog and Bowers Jr.

People (especially adults) should have no involvement with video games. Society wants to keep the human mentality at a childish level.

I kind of agree... There are exceptions. Games that are strategic, linguistic, geographical and conceptual are exceptions. But if it's a FPS, then I can agree.

But this is the same with television and popular culture in general.

Have you tried EBII? It was released two days ago. It's still in an early beta, but is already better than EBI.

I have been following the devs of the mod for a long time. I loved EB 1, and all the stuff they did. It was probably on the list of greatest mods for any game. I dont have EB2 yet, but I will shortly (as the ArcheAge beta is closed down again).

You know, I could have sworn that there was someone really important who had something to say about becoming like little children being a prerequisite for something spectacular. I forget the particulars.
