Re: Reasons to hate modern games

in Milliways
What's going on with Warhammer 40K games? For years and years there were just the Space Hulk games, but now there are hundreds of the things, and dozens of new ones get released each year. What's going on over there? What business model is this? But I would love a new modern computer that are able …

Edit: That being said, it would be sad if Vogons would abandon its original mission. Let us all remember that we owe the founders, moderators and early members some respect for their encouragement, their support and their kindness (kudos to them). Vogons shouldn't become something that they will …

Re: Reasons to hate modern games

I too have those issues with controls and I really hate coming across PC games that seem to prioritize gamepads; maybe I'm old fashioned but in my head the main controls for a computer are keyboard, mouse and joystick. The games that I found that prioritized the gamepad, I returned them instantly, …

What about those who doesn't like 'em all? So first of all I do not hate them at all. Then I was a kid I liked them very much, but since age of 15 or so I started to realize that they are too primitive, too predictable, too boring, too time consuming and the real life is much more fun "to play" …

Dialup at best was half that It was the best that I was able to calculate in a hurry. But yeah, that is low. Perhaps it was meant differently in a different context, yet came off as totally wrong. I just took the person at his word. I have DSL. Well for me it isn't just the low speed, average 30 to …

Hate is such a strong word. Modern games just dont do it for me personally. That is my reason, but I don't hate them I just choose not to play. There are quite a few indie games that are quite good. Brothers: A Take of Two Sons is really good. You can even control both characters at the same time …

My download speed is 1GB per day if I am lucky, so the size is a factor for me. That is roughly 24 megabyte an hour.... Are you on dial up or something?

Re: The moment you were hooked

I always played games on a PC even when I was a little kid, but I really didn't start truly being a PC Gamer till I got a Steam account in 2012 and even then for a while I don't think I really called myself that until the following year after. Gamer is such a newage word anyway. Back in the 80's we …

Re: The moment you were hooked

I was already hooked on Amiga and Commodore64, when my parents bought a Unisys PW/2 Series 300 around 1987/88 or something. To this day, I am still hooked on Dos/C64/Amiga-gaming. I just don't practice it that much these days. Hooked, not addicted. 😁

Re: What music are you listening to?

in Milliways
Doom Metal never worked for me, but I'll give it a listen anyway. The albums I'm listening to most these days are Iotunn - Access All Worlds , Vektor - Terminal Redux and Kreator - Gods of Violence (guilty pleasure lol). At the moment I'm listening to Haggard - Eppur Si Muove though. \nn/ Also I …
