I've… seen things you people wouldn't believe… Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments… will be lost in time, like tears… in… rain.
Brings Back many Fond Memories Of The OldSchool Gaming, Back Then, All We Knew Was HardCore Gaming. No Help No Training Wheels No Maps No Information No Difficutly Changes, Hard Was Default With A Chance Of Nightmare.
Play Enjoy, If Not Get A New Game.
These Early Games, Was The Defining Point Of Wich Games I Love And Like Today. Love The Past, But Respect The Future, Is What We Gamers Can Do At These Modern Times.
Although Great, It´s Also So SAD, Hope For The Future Of Games, Is About The Only Thing Left.
HardCore Gaming, Ain´t A Choice, Its A Personality Trait..
There apparently were not a LOT of us playing dial-up online multiplayer games, but the "Team Fortress Classic" as it is called now, was SOOO much fun for me for about 2 years. It was the first game I modded with scripting, I know, it ain't coding, but it is kinda like coding for us hardware focused guys. I could write and install scripts into the game to make "macros" that would allow me to rocket jump in soldier class up two stories into a snipers nest and spam hime with gernades after knifing him. I still have the scripts for the macros in My Documents, just in case, heh.
Or write a script to allow me to be a scout class and stun grenade jump across the map hundreds of feet at super fast speed, wham!
That and Tribes, with the backpack jets, which they did mention, were soooooo cuel. Lotsa time spent. Can't recall which one first had the class distinctions, but it was marvelous. You had your own pack on your own team.
First game that turned me into making and overclocking computers was "Turok - Dinosaur Hunter", about 1997, still can hear the music with the drums. Speaking of music, the best I heard for a game was in The Battle Mechs (?), with the rhythmic swaying of the mech robot walking to the next battle, setting the theme of the music.
Okay, Desert Combat mod of Battlefield 1942 was super, and then BF2 was great. We are SO lucky to live in these days of being able to live multiple virtual lives and escape tedium.
PS: Passed 10MillionUSD in Dying Light, gonna finish game finally. Went to 6mil on low, rest on high, not much different but more immersive on higher difficulty, removes a lot of sprites and displays.
