When games fade away

Games come and go. Just like what happened with quake, quakeworld, doom, quake team fortress, half-life death match, diablo, diablo II, asheron’s call, everquest, daggerfall,,,, and hundreds of other games.

Remember the good ole days of playing the games you enjoy. One day you will tell your kids of the good times you had.
I still tell my kids about what quake was like in 1997 and 1998. When we used to play diablo II I would tell them stories of what it was like playing the original diablo on dialup.

As for myself, my kids and I used to play l4d / l4d2. Now my grandkids and I play.

Gamers Life

boogie2988 made a nice rhyme about what its like to be a gamer.

Non-gamers would not understand what its like to play an online video game, or even a single player role playing game. Modern video games open up a whole new world. Games like Left 4 Dead, New Vegas, Skyrim, Left 4 Dead 2 open up whole new worlds to gamers.

If nothing else, video games are a great way to relieve stress.

My first PC video game was Command & Conquer for DOS, but it also ran on Windows 3.11.

My second PC video game was Doom.

My Favorite Video Games

Left 4 Dead - Dead Air Map

I first started playing video games in the early 1980s. My buddies and I would ride our bikes to a corner store by the name of Cecil’s grocery in Bridge City Texas. Cecil had put in a Donkey Kong arcade next to the front door. My buddies and I would buy a coke, then spend what felt like hours pumping quarters into that machine.

Shortly after Cecil put his Donkey Kong arcade in, Howards grocery store in Bridge City put a Space Invaders and I think a missile command arcade game. The bike ride to Howards was long then the ride to Cecils. for some reason, riding the bikes all the way to Howards made the games less enjoyable then going to Cecils.

I guess it was somewhere around 1981 or 1982 mom and dad bought my brother and I an Atari. We must have played Pong and Pac Man for hours on end.

Fast forward 10 years. I got married, had kids and bought a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).

Between 1995 – 2000 is when gaming really got interesting. My family and I bought a Packard Bell computer with windows 3.11, 75mhz processor and 8 megs of memory.
