Too right - personally I`ve not played anything since with quite the same amount of OMFG - when you sprang a trap and the walls rolled down and the whole world went pink with gorillas and b*stard demons. Nowadays its all about billions of polygons but only a dozen opponents. Somehow I miss what it was like when it was the other way round...
We would but you`d probably screech "REPOST". :P
Doom, Heretic, Duke Nukem 3D, and Blood were all great for multiplayer. And I still think Star Control 2 is one of the best single-player games ever.
Doom was the first FPS I ever played. So many memories!
OH! Who remembers The Lost Mind of Dr. Brain!? :D
I used to have that game! And we still have fluppys in our house with various things on them. not that they are used anymore, sadly :(
Memory lane of other games I used to love:
- King`s Quest (particularly 5, 6 & 7)- Museum Madness- The Incredible Machine!- Oregon Trail (obviously)- Amazon Trail- O`Dell Down Under- Shivers 1 & 2- Math Blaster- Battune (not sure how many of you would know this one, they were freeware on AOL, about 60 different episodes -- but if you do, I LOVE YOU)- I can`t remember the name, but it was an adventure game with this stoner guy... quasi-3D graphics, towards the end of the game you got locked up in an insane asylum, the game ended in the the sewers underneath a concert? One word title, I wanna say starts with a "V". If anybody knows this one, again I love you)- Dust: Tale of the Wired West- Myst- And there was a game with this Penguin guy. It wasn`t really a game, there were just a couple different
Whoever thought that moving the mouse forward should move the character forward should have been shot.
Heh, I have a copy of the shareware version that I play in DOSBox sometimes :)
Hurray for rockin it OLD SCHOOL
I think they just converted into what we know as "forums" now.
ANYONE REMEMBER WEBRINGS!? Oh my GOD! XD
I remember not even having a `windows` desktop, our first computer was just like running in DOS.
and I had this police game that you went around doing police missions..one of the first things you did was go to a lake and arrest this homeless guy. If you didn`t check his undies, he pulled out a knife and stabbed you!....I was 5 ._. anyone know the name??
You`d be surprised. Actual code for a game takes up very little space, the reason why most modern games are 5-15GB is art assets. Doom has very simplistic, limited visuals, so not much memory is needed.
Ah Ah Ah!! "Not that old," the reaper is just over your shoulder!
Kids these days...imagine being a fricken 6 year old right now, consoles being what they are, computers being what they are....I HAD AND USED HOME PRINTERS THAT USED PAPER WITH PERFORATED, REMOVABLE HOLES ON THE SIDE. I`ve made it a contest. Who remembers that sh*t?
That is a fantastically dated joke!
A blonde won`t accept a 3 1/2 inch floppy.
I just had a memory! I remember I used to like springing the metal bit backwards and forwards when I was little. That was fun xD
Blows my mind that now I download over the internet games of 5-6gb with regularity. So, a 5gb game (completely normal size these days) would fill, oh, about 3473 of these 1.44mb floppys.
I remember I was a very disappointed 13 year old when I tried to install it on my old 386 only to find that I didn`t have the required 4 MB of RAM.
I remember installing Police Quest: Open Season on like 10 floppies. AWESOME!
It`s not hooked up to anything, but what else am I going to do with an empty drive bay?
"Hangin` out...at the Treehouse..."
Of course, you had to do it all again the next time you wanted to play a game...
