The stupid console game thread

Postby Bo_9 » Sun Mar 24, 2019 6:23 pm

So I've not been in the "gamer" demographic for a really long time, mostly played along with my kids on Xbox. Minecraft, Fortnight, and Forza none of which were done wholeheartedly but Forza "because race-car".
Now I find myself in the grips of a hardcore Apex Legends addiction. Like in my 20's I can play that damn thing for hours and not feel the passage of time.It isn't taken too seriously either, but it seems to be fun and an outlet for my work related stress.
Oh yeah, and I suck at it. Like I have not played a FPS game since back when Doom, Duke Nukem and Wolfenstein we new. But I have a damn good time. Even considering firing up Twitch to steam my hilarious failures live. I'm currently shopping for a decent but inexpensive headset.
But really if anyone is playing this on Xbox PM me your GamerTag and I'll add you, so you can witness my wholesome failures firsthand.

Seriously this game has me entertaining the idea of building a gamer PC again now that bitcoin is pretty much dead and video-cards aren't half the build.

Oh man... I remember buying chapter one of the first Wolfenstein game in a copy shop in Scotland. I was maybe 11, I think.
Just one 3.5" disk. I don't recall how much I payed. I didn't exactly have much spending cash at that age, so it can't have been expensive.
It was also "shareware". Remember shareware?
If there were absolutely anything to be afraid of, don't you think I would have worn pants?

Yeah now if it's "shareware", you are the product...

I'm still kicking myself for throwing out the family Commodore 64. It was the 1st gen "breadbox", and we had a fancy floppy-drive, too! The idea that the thing might make a nice casemod one day hadn't even occurred to me.

Oh, the C64. ,8,4, wasn't it?
Winter Games, Summer Games, and I think we had some kind of Mission-Impossible game. Never figured out how that was supposed to work, you were kinda riding elevators up and down to get to a "room" with platforms and shit and you had to jump over robots or something.
And, of course, Zac McKraken, and Maniac Mansion. Didn't yet speak English, so never got far there, either. Not on the 64. I think I eventually managed to get to the end of Maniac Mansion when it came free on a CD-Rom that was packaged with some gaming magazine.
