Hi everyone. Been hearing good things about this site and ended up here when I went looking for Redneck Rampage. Glad to see some of the classic PC games on here I never got to experience back in the day because I had a fossil of a pc at the time.
Welcome, welcome we have cake but someone ate the pie(im not pointing any fingers as to who that may have been)
I guess it's about time I introduce myself formally:)
I've been a gamer since around 1985. The first system I owned was a Commodore 64. I've since owned or own an Amiga 500, a couple of Gameboys/DS, Nintendo 64 and a Wii. Apart from PC's, that is:)
I'm a member of the "games were better back then" crowd, though I do enjoy a good few newer games as well. I like all kinds of games, but must admit I have a special love for adventure games. Oh, and I think GOG has the best online shop interface I've ever seen.
In case anyone cares, here's my list of "game changing" games, or "games that made me think: wow, I can't believe this!":
- The Last Ninja (C64)
:Hello?! I'm 9 and I get to be a friggin' ninja? Hell yeah!
- Pirates (A500)
: How many hours have I lost to this game? Let me count the ways....
- Wings (A500)
: It's true. I actually flew during WWI, and I soloed 7 Fokkers. Swear.
- The Secret of Monkey Island (A500)
: No need to comment
- Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars (PSX)
: See previous comment
- Ports of Call (PC)
: Damn those tugboats....
- Starcraft (PC)
: Let's Zerg!
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)
: So huge, so beautiful, so epic!
- Call of Duty 2 (PC)
: Invasion at Normandy = most effective portrayal of how it must have felt that any media has so far achieved.
- World of Warcraft (PC)
: Yes, I got eaten by the Blizzard monster. I still think it's a remarkable piece of gaming history, but luckily, I've learned to say no:)
- On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness (PC)
: There are no words to describe this
- Machinarium (PC)
: Cute, stunning, haunting. To see a small group of people come up with a game this special is a rare thing indeed. Who says adventure games are dead?
Well what can I say, better late than never.
Welcome and thank you for travelling GoG airways.... wait a minute...
