Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

in Milliways
PS. Nvidia Geforce DDR is also overrated, but if we go there, I have to write a book of overrated stuff :D Interesting can you say more about this opinion? I think to remember back in its days there was quite some boost compared to the SDR early version (beside the AGP wattage bus specification …

Nice thread. :) Welll.. even if I'm into x86 computers since early 90's I think I've probably finished just few games, most MS-DOS finished games were the shareware versions and the few full ones I remember were Another World, Test Drive III, Half Life, Half Life II, Far Cry and maybe few others, …
