Looking over my shoulder

Postby Erains » Fri Jun 01, 2012 4:26 pm

I have been debating lately with myself about games.

1. I always seem to have a POS computer when games come out.
2. There have been games that I could not play at all because of hardware..( Vanguard ).
3. SWG was a game that I liked alot, but hated the lag.
4. DAoC was a very good game, as long as I stayed away from PvP.
5. I loved EQ1 and played....ack..ack..time played ( about 165 real days ). omg.
6. I never really got into EQ2. I liked it somewhat and checked into my room at the inn the other night.
I still have my baby dragon there. I remember the lag was really bad.
7. Other games were good to bad. Lord of the Rings was good. Reminded me of EQ.
8. I sort of like SWTOR, but it is not one of my favorites...yet.
9. I like MMORPG types over single player games..but there are many single player games that are good.
10. My new laptop rocks.... :mrgreen:
11. This post is about nothing really....just wanted to kill some time.

Dangit, we need a Nar meetup sometime. I work with people who made all of these games and have tons of entertaining stories... but most aren't the type that should be shared in writing, without alcohol present :)

Before Zelda, before Realm, before Wolfenstien, before Space Invaders....
Long ago.....I had a battery operated electronic chess set. Was not as good as the board game, but handy when alone.
I play games because they are fun and I enjoy myself.
The reason I say that is because I have had the debate with others in games past, and recently heard the same about SWTOR.
The question game up "What does SWTOR offer me before I decide to play it?"
I sit there without an answer.
I understand the "win" - "gameover" process. I also understand the mmorpg process. And I don't feel that the two can co-exist for very long.
Just my thoughts.
