For those of you who don't understand that last sentence, I pity you and your youth. Anybody else have good memories of Blizzard's days before they were called Blizzard?
You didn't experience the revolutions that were Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Neverwinter Nights (AOL's 500-player graphical MMORPG from the early 1990's), Maniac Mansion / Zak McCracken, Ghosts N Goblins, Duck Hunt, Super Mario Brothers, Contra, Ikari Warriors, Dragon Warrior, Final Fantasy 1 & 2, Phantasie II, Conan, Wings of Fury, Red Baron (the original), etc. There was plenty of 'good stuff' long before 1999, including Warcraft: Orcs and Humans, and Diablo.09/25/2011 07:50 PMPosted by Kangaxxthats okay, i came of gaming age when all the good stuff started coming out, like 1999ish. cant imagine what id do if i grew up before then, probably go insane from boredom
If anything, youd go insane from all the great games, that relied on actually being good rather than having good graphics. You werent even around for the games that actually revolutionized gaming and were precursors for games that you hold so dear today.09/25/2011 07:50 PMPosted by Kangaxxthats okay, i came of gaming age when all the good stuff started coming out, like 1999ish. cant imagine what id do if i grew up before then, probably go insane from boredom
Good times... My brother and I actually had a similar conversation, except it was me asking him, "Hey, you remember when you would play Rock N' Roll Racing with your friends -- and never let me play?"
"Man, those were the days..."
Next time you're drinking with your brother, spill some juice for the younger brothers out there everywhere, who weren't as fortunate as to have kind, sharing brothers... *sigh* :P
