Playing old games...
I have a wii and all I like to really play on it is the Wii Resort and Mario Party 8, but our nun chucks connectors are broken so I can only play the remote only minigames? <x)
Also, I sometimes go way way back to the Game Boy Color to play Pokémon Red, and to the Nintendo 64 to play Diddy Kong racing. (which coincidentally was my very first video game.)

Anyone ever get an itch to actually go back to play games from like, 2009 or something earlier sometimes? Even flippin' Pokemon X and Y feels old now. >.<
And I just realized all of those were Nintendo...>->

Lol. So...I haven't really had the money to buy video game systems at all in my life. So when I do play games, they're always old. XD
My fave go-to ones are Rune Factory 3 (Nintendo DS) or Shrek 2 and Fable (xBox)
And somewhere in my mess, I do have a gameboy color and Pokemon Red and Blue that I will play sometimes.

Gosh. The original Xbox feels like it happened 60 years ago, but I never owned one. :/ I did remember playing on my cousin's though, and we had wrestling games, and a Jedi Academy game on it or something. Ohhhh, I totally forgot about PC games too! x]
PC games in the 90s were like all I ever had as a child. x') I remember my dad playing the PC version of The Phantom Menace when it came out 15 million years ago...*sigh* weird times...

The old game I always tend to go back to is Mega Man 2. Truthfully I like 5 better (charged buster, slide, jet armor) but I never owned 5 so 2 is the one I know best -- and 2 has the best music.

Tetris almost counts, except I play newer versions because they're just simply better than the old ones.

I only got my Xbox like...5-ish years ago. Because it was probably around $150 cheaper than the latest Xbox system at the time. Neither my parents nor I could afford video game systems when it was new, no matter how badly I wanted one. And now, I still can't afford them. And playing games by myself gets kind of...boring I guess? Like, they're alright, but being able to play and joke around with friends would make them better.

Ah PC games. My mom kind of ruled the PC, so we seldom got to use it unless it was legitimately for school. So we didn't have many games. Just Oregon Trail 3, Jewel Quest, and the demo games that we got from cereal boxes (Clue, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, those type) back in the day. And some obscure games on floppy disk.

Legend of Mana, Breath of Fire games, Woodruff and the Schnibble of Azimuth, and the King's Quest games are my continual life replays.

For some reason or other, more than half of everything I play is old.

Online I play Guild Wars - mind you, the original from 2005. I did actually try Guild Wars 2, but even though I liked being able to play as Charr or Norn, the whole game itself never could convince me. Feels like one of these casual five minutes lunchbreak games. Its precedessor is a lot more interesting.

Offline, a huge fan of the Sims. But again, Sims 4 never truly caught my interest. After all the ingame customization options of Sims 3, or the detailed animations of Sims 2 (actually board a car instead of beaming inside, anyone?) the most recent game seems to lack in every area.

As far as consoles go, I own a Wii and PS3. Since they both work perfectly fine, I don't really get an urge to upgrade to PS4 or WiiU.

And for anyone who believes "old" starts twenty years ago, I also enjoy to spend my time in multi user dungeons. Who said a game needs graphics to get someone hooked? ^^

Oooooh, a fellow MUDder! Which one(s) did you play? I got my start on FieryMUD, but spent a lot more time overall in Dragon's Star, and only ever hit level cap on CyberASSAULT (and that only because level cap there is 30 instead of 100).

I was briefly a builder for Seath's ROM (the fact that its name was "Seath's ROM" should indicate that it never took off) and I applied to be a builder on Dragon's Star but didn't make the cut because a more experienced candidate got the role. I also built my own MUD engine, although it ended up getting retrofitted into a tabletop RPG service that my friends used for YEARS.

!!! Are we doing MUD recommendations now? Aaaaah where's Lawtan when you need them.

Death by Mirrors 12-17-2018 04:35 PM

Yes we're definitely doing MUD recommendations!

(Although I fear I don't know much to recommend... my favorite one is UNItopia, but you'd have to understand German for that)

Merskelly Metalien 12-17-2018 11:20 PM

.U.; Ohhhman..MUDs are way beyond my time haha! *has nothing to contribute*

I have, on more than one occasion, been tempted to make a Trisphee MUD.

The main reason I haven't is because it would be basically completely disjoint from the rest of the site.

I mean, they're also more or less from before I was on the internet, but they haven't quite lost their charm.

Personally I think a Trisphee MUD would be great fun, but from my experience with dragging friends into my favorite few I suppose the number of actual players is going to be less than five.

Stabbsworth 12-20-2018 01:13 PM

what's MUD stand for again? i'm probably being a bit of an idiot here.
