    We never had a video game system at home so I had to go to a friends house and play Yar's Revenge....awesome. Other than that, we'd just go outside and throw lawn darts up in the air and then avoid them on their way down!

    Oldies

    If we are talking about the old one's the first game I ever played was on an 8086 system, it was a "graphical" Star Trek game. The Quadrant was laid out and you could go to any sector, You were an E, Klingons a K, stars an asterisk and Bases a B. To move 1 sector you would put in 1 (N,S,E,W) or you could move part of a sector by using decimals. Then you could shoot by figuring angles to the target.

    My favorite old time games, well Zelda was definitely one of them. My favorite games though were on the old Intellivision system. There was Dreadnaught, D and D, and Island Wars. Then came out the most addictive game I have ever played (until I started into MMORPG's) on the NES- Nobunaga's Ambition. It had everything, village management, army building, tactics, and a difficult but eventually attainable goal. The first time I beat the game I had been playing it for almost 30 hours straight. I could barely focus on the T.V.

    However I do still play games and think there are many good ones out there. I love Deus Ex, it is not as difficult as some of the old ones but it is great fun. Also Myst and Riven were graphical grand children of the early text adventures and I think did them proud. Aside from a few standouts most FPS's have added little to Doom but eye candy. I like eye candy but the basic game play is still much the same and the game is based on dynamics not plot. Maybe that is why I like Deus Ex, it's plot was intriguing to me and you can sneak many missions (I don't but you could if you wanted to). The only FPS's that have extended the genre seem to do so through on-line play. Here I point to Half-Life with its many mods. Happily it demonstates that most innovation comes from talented amateurs (Counter Strike and dozens more) which are then immulated by professionals.

    BTW I use the same nick on-line playing CS and Anarchy Online (for my main) as I do here. So if you ever find yourself shooting me there make sure to say hi.

    Hey,

    You can play all these golden oldies on emulation software available for the p.c

    I have tonnes of these emulators and games. I am not sure of the laws on these things but if anyone wants copies let me know.

    E.G Sega master system, Sega Mega Drive (Genesis), Nintendo (NES,SNES)

    I have also got just about every game available for each.

    mail me.
