and DM3 in Quake1 feels like an old home...

Everquest.

It opened me up to the concept of virtual reality and telepathic training matrixes. I was addicted for about a year and a half, I can't remember for sure, as things are pretty hazy from that era in my life....  :grin:

It must be what crack feels like.

I can't wait for the next few generations of these multi-user games. Everquest was amazing to me at first but I think it's still quite primitive. Imagine what these games will be like ten or twenty years down the road. Sooner or later they'll become completely immersive, just plug something into your brain and you're there. :cool: 

I think The Sims is a culturaly significant game. Anyone into it? The Sims Online is coming soon...

Hehe I still remember playing Doom on direct-connect years ago. To see a character that I KNEW my friend was controlling in real time blew my mind like nothing else.

yeah!!! i know what you mean about DM3 man, exactly!!!  quake was so great when i was tripping on about 5 sugar cubes.  for lack of a good internet connection i decided to play bots... and man, i couldn't miss!  :wink:  reflexes increased 10 fold.  even though i could barely make out the details of the level it didn't fuckin matter, i knew the spawn points and where all the items were.  i could make out the bots, gibs and explosions streaking across my FOV, and that's all that mattered.

Final Fantasy 7... all i can say is i fell in love... when cloud's friends were chrused.. i felt sorrow and sadness... then Aeris died and i was stunned.. then i finally beat the game and felt a little more complete in my life..

Im telling ya this game was awesome!

Then FF8 then FF9 then FF10... i liked 9 out of those three the best... just the whole fantasy is a great experience.

Now im into Lineage: the blood pledge.. its a MMORPG.. a great online game.. like Everquest.. soon they will have lineage 2 run by the unreal engine.. they edited the engine to have a seemless world. The graphics are going to rock and they still have the concept of pledges and such.. never played everquest but i bet its good...

Reminds me of when i use to think about how they should make chat rooms where you can create your own character and such and walk around talking to other people... and online rpgs are just that... with a hardcore gamer twist!

ROCK ON! lol :cool:

Peace,
Droz

My favorite online game is a sweet and addictive game called
Subspace now known as Continuum. Usually you play against 40-50 ppl at a time but it can be much more..
The game is simple, and it's sometimes been referred to as online asteroids.. but no, it's much more.. It's easy to learn but impossible to master.. i've had moments of Zen playing this game. Check it out, its free.

Xenogears would have to be my favorite RPG. One of the only ones I could stand on the PSX, as well. I've been playing Neverwinter Nights like it's crack recently.

Yes!! FF7!

I cried, I laughed, I felt sorrow with them. I fell in love with Sephiroth, Cloud and Vincent's hotness.

/me drools over Sephiroth, Cloud and Vincent.

Can't forget Legends of Mana or Zelda. :grin:

I also like Baulders Gate, Icewind Dale and Diablo II for computer games. :smile:

Ha, Zelda use to put me into a trance playing it... still does actually. Feeling such a sense of accomplishment after beating one of the Dragon Warriors or Secret of Mana... so many good games over the years. Some would consider some video games to be a form of meditation..

hehe, Ragga,
i remember always getting my ass kicked by them LPB's, then one time at like 2 in the morning, i was still trippin on some geltabs and i loaded up Quake, and found myself 1v1'ing this really good LPB i had seen around the servers.
i didn't really kick his ass but i was actually making him struggle
he was like "who the fuck are you?? no HPB has ever owned me like this"
acid definately helps your hand eye reflexes if you get 'in the zone' 
also helps when you feel like you're actually inside the game, you play alot more carefully.


i was addicted to Ultima Online for about a year or so... it was my life. i played it like 12 hours a day. Whenever i wasnt playing i thought about what was going on in the ultima world.
in my opinion, it is very similar to a drug addiction. 


anyone ever played Earthbound?
a snes rpg,  i fell in love with that world...
and Illusion of Gaia.. magical

same with the Zelda's

i remember dosing and playing FF9..  i was peaking while adventuring into this giant tree in the game. it was so f'n trippy..  riding down the spiral of roots,  green eminating all around me..

damn Cyber, you beat my old school-edness with doom :smile:
i know how you feel though,  the first time i played Quake online, I was just like holy shit! thats a real person controlling that guy!  *BAM* shit!

ahaha... Quake3 on a few red gellies...  jumpin around in space in a railgun war... fun!

Mr_mushrooms, do you mean ULTIMATE PRO VIRTUAL CHECKERS v2.0 ???  or  SUPER CHECKER LEAGUE ZOMBIE SQUAD ELITE?????  :wink:

I agree! Continuum is the best game out there... especially DSB zone :smile:

Its free, you dont have to spend any time building a character, there are no cheaters, you just jump in and play and chat with 40+ other people at any time of the day.

Why watch TV? Why come on the internet?
Video games can provide an escape for some, a way to relax, or simply for entertainment. Of course anything in excess can be detrimental to your well-being, the key is moderation. They are fodder for the imagination.

Sclorch, I find some videogames spiritual in a way. they are happy memories of other worlds, and make me look at my world in fresh different ways sometimes. other times they make me sick in the head.

old-school lucas arts adventure games were great: maniac mansion, day of the tentacle, monkey island, indiana jones and the fate of atlantis, sam & max, yadaya... other puzzle games like myst or 7th guest...
of course zelda for nintendo was a classic
and all those rpgs bring back nostalgia, although in retrospect they're kindah silly soap-operas that don't do it for me like a good sci-fi/fantasy book, but as a kid...... and whoever mentioned sephiroth as hot, oh yah..... i wish i had long silver hair... :P

Does anybody remember the reletively obscure game EVO:Evolution for SNES? I think I played that game for like 14 hours straight when I was 10. In the game you start out as a lowly sea creature.You got points by eating other animals and with those points you could buy new body parts like improved fins or teeth or a spike tail or something.There were literally thousands of combinations. As you progressed through the game you went from a fish,to a reptile,to a dinosaur, to a mammal, and finally to a human.I wish they made a new version of that game,but it never caught on.That game taught me more about biology than I learned in high school.Kids should play that game in class.

ive played both Earthbound and maniac mansion. I loved that earthbound game, it was definitly entertaining. I heard that they were realising an Earthbound 64 a while back, but it never came out. I wonder what happened. i was eagerly waiting to play it.

Fug it...

How about ARKANOID?!
The arcade game with the little metal wheel is the best way to play.
Joust comes second.

EVO was damn cool..  it was addicting cuz you got so personal with your character.. watched it grow from the beginnings of life!

i remember watching for Earthbound 64 (mother3)  for a long ass time, and it just eventually disappeared..  sucks too,  the pictures and storyline looked really interesting.   
oh well, now we have more room for games like Xtreme Cool Boardaz 5


Araknoid is the shit  :smile:


anyone played Persona?
i remember just letting the introduction to that game run on loop cuz i loved it so much

An old Bungie game. There were actually 3 of them, the first was back around the same time as DOOM so it had a similar pseudo-3d engine. A lot more effort put into the single-player storyline than id's stuff. Only was ever big on the Macintosh since Macs didn't get Doom until much later.

Would probably suck to play now, but you can see a lot of Marathon influences in Oni and Halo (Bungie's newer games.)

Has anyone seen the movie ExistenZ? Its about a virtual reality video game of the future where you plug this device into your spine and by all means of definition you exist as yourself within the gaming world. Its indistinguishable from real life, and this creates all sorts of problems for determining which is which. Its a pretty good movie and raises some interesting questions. Is that what video games could be like in the future? We all plug in and exist in this virtual world just like real life except what you do has no consequence to your physical body. If this is the gaming world why would you ever want to come back to the real world?

Is such an immersion in a virutal reality a bad thing? The criticism I've always had of video games is that it just replaces the real world with a cheap and unrealistic immitation which decreases your interaction and appreciation for what actually exists. But maybe the gaming world is just as valid as this world. I don't know. Interesting.

I got hooked on EverQuest too, played it from the day it hit store shelves up until about 10 or 12 months ago. Played on Xegony, had (still have technicly) a level 59 wizard, level 22 cleric and a little level 12 enchater that i used for trade skills.

But Final Fantasy 3 is and always will be the best video game ever made  :wink:

YES!! Classic! The cool part is that the game isn't completely linear; you can make all sorts of weird combinations of creatures by evolving different body parts. I'd love to see a new version of that game.
