    Default When your not playing BF4...

    I'm into vintage games, one of the more rare games out there was released for the Atari Jaguar, the game was called Battlesphere and it was a space shooter that was like a modern take of star raiders.

    The game was released after Atari went out of business and back in the day the community all wrote letters pleading with Hasbro who bought Atari to release the rights for the Jaguar as well as the encryption code so that the cartridges could be manufactured. The game could be networked for up to 40 some players but the game was only produced in very limited numbers, it comes up on eBay now and again for usually $500-700 per copy. I am lucky enough to have two copies and two systems networked to play, it's one of those games that I have played the heck out of over the years and never seems to get old to me.

    Besides Battlefield 4, I play Dwarf Fotress (which only looks really old).
    However, for actually old games, I tend to go back to the LucasArts Point-and-Click Adventure games like Day of the Tentacle, The Dig, and The Secret of Monkey Island periodically.

    I am so old, I had to create my own graphics in my head for my games. Any one play Zork?

    I've always loved classic arcade games and have had them on my pc for the last twenty years. Got a Raspberry Pi (mini computer) for Christmas and have been setting up the arcade games along with other systems this week. Pretty amazing little gadget.

    I run an emulator on the pc. Have a 200-300 games. One of these days I’m going to play them.

    Those raspberry pies are perfect for emulators now, I remember using the first ones when they came out, I did an apt-get to fetch the installation scripts and it literally took like 19 hrs to run.. the new ones are so fast and totally make for a good little emulator station. My only complaints with the emulators has always been the the controls... nothing beats playing the old systems with the original controllers the downside is I have thousands and thousands of dollars invested and a lot of space for all these old systems and their cartridges take up a lot of space as well.. A tote full of Nintendo 64 carts weighs a ton...lol...

    The old Atari 2600 has aged very judged by how much time my boys spend playing them, I’m not the best gauge since I’m all nostalgic and old ...

    In terms of computer games, I still play the old Team Fortress once in a while, Civilization 5, Sim City 4.. the old unreal tournament games and a little bit of Quake series.


    At one point I tried to go all in on Linux and only play ports or games that worked with the wine varients but I think the days of Linux taking over windows as a gaming platform or long gone...

    Team Fortress.... Old??? Damn Raynet you must be young.

    Time is my killer... when not playing BF4 I am usually wrenching out in my shop, or working on the honey-do list... or traveling the world for work. I do remember the dial up days and playing Doom with friends... or Falcon flight sim. How about Duke Nukem... now that was a kick ass game... "come get some"

    Oh god, Cdiver, you're not one of those people who keeps telling everyone how great the Pi is when it comes to emulating old games, are you?
