Sorry PDO, my long response to your post was wiped out by a 'Computers and Technology'. :angry: glitch.

PDO, in short I was a game developer working for Activision 35 years ago when the home game consoles had just come out. The Atari 2600, Tandy TRS-80, Intellivision and Nintendo consoles were wildly popular. But then suddenly crashed. Read paragraph 2 ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_video_game_consoles ). We all lost our jobs. I tried to stay in the applied mathematics (modeling, engineering) field, but I didn't have much opportunities, and did business programming instead. I wish I had kept at it.

I love the Cyan series (Myst, etc), and think the sound tracks really draw the gamer in to the 2D worlds. Obduction (Cyan) is a modern 3D adventure where you can walk around freely, in the first person. I recommend checking it out. I completed most all of it without a single cheat or on-line help, which is pretty good for little old me. :side:

Well from my perspective, games just went from critical thinking with depth along with risk/reward too the total opposite.

Pretty sad when 34mb games had more content than the 6g+ ones they have out now, and yes most those gigs are for graphics than engine/ game mechanics code.

I feel the late 90's into the early 2000's were the golden age of gaming as far as depth, risk reward content goes.

Also the internet kinda killed gaming as far as not much could be secret anymore as in spoilers. Was great going to my friends and seeing what he found in final fantasy II and compare notes.

Fall out 2 > The other fallouts would be a good example of how different games are now. ( really enjoyed fallout 4 though but it is not the fallout I grew up with)

My all time "classic" faves or examples would be in no specific order:

Master of orion 1,2

Xcom apocolypse

Everquest 1

DOOM

Civ 3

Fall out 2

Galactic civilizations

Dungen keeper 2 ( Jack pot winner!!! Burn baby burn,,, disco inferno, burn baby burn,,,)

Guess I'm just a crotchety old school gamer :(

I'm a huge Fallout Fan too. I love Blizzard too. I remember when I was a kid in 5th grade and they had Myst on the school computer. People would arrive an hour early before school started just to watch this one kid play. We were all blown away.

Why do you say that the gaming industry died?

As you can probably tell by my avatar, I am a gamer. All PC games, and don't like consoles.

I started out programming with a team, porting over game console programs (like Space Invaders; remember that?) from the Atari 2600 to other competing consoles. It was Assembler and Machine Language (0's and 1's) back then. Then the game industry died.

I've always liked Cyan's work, such as Myst, Uru, and Obduction. I like the idea of crawling in to new worlds and checking out different ways of playing.

I used to do a lot of FPS, but just don't have the twitch skills for it. I will admit to being part of Half-Life LAN parties, but don't do it any more. If I did, then I am sure I would really go for Overwatch. Just don't PvP too much.

Recent past, I have poured a great deal of my free time in to some offerings from Blizzard (Activision), into franchises such as the Diablo, and WoW. Looking forward to the creation and release of Vanilla WoW, and will play that at launch. ( link: us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/22814264/ ) in case you are interested.

I also like the Bethesda offerings such as the Fallout series, TES Oblivion, Skyrim, etc and have spent literally thousands of hours in those.

I like it's attention to Pagan details of the era. My wife knows A LOT about the Pagan religions (all of them), and she'll watch me play for hours...it's enchanting, and historically addictive.

I probably won't find another good game for a year...I'm very picky these days.

I guess I'll just invest all that time back into the company.


Good game, keep thinking about playing again and then I forget. I have quite afew games but havnt been playing any much the last couple months. I actually have had the minecraft bug again. It reminds me of being a kid building forts n stuff in the woods. :P

If you love cerebral/building games that get you thinking and optimizing then I highly recommend this one.
PC only though

youtu.be/DR01YdFtWFI

At the moment I am playing , divinity original sin 2. It's like a old school rpg like baulders gate and fallout 2.
The games I like the most are open world where only your imagination is the limit, minecraft, 7 days to die, empyrion, avorion and factorio are my top favorites.
