I was wondering this while listening to a podcast recently as they talked about retro gaming.
Obviously everyone's own perception of what is retro is unique to that person, but if you were to talk to kids these days about gaming what examples would you use to illustrate how gaming was when you were young and what got you hooked?
I probably have a few:
- I remember playing the original SimCity on my 486 when I was really young, not the best graphics but great strategy....I even uses X-tree Gold OS to play it
- Console-wise it would probably be Golden-eye on the N64 and playing multi-player with the golden gun or prox mines.
- Lastly as a teenager, Quake II with the grappling hook mod on the local town server or sinking countless hours in to Ultima Online as my first MMORPG experience. Those hours sunk in to UO was what lead to me avoiding Everquest or WoW because I understood what impact it could have on work/study/life.
What's your "back in my day" games?
