Hmmmmmmm, I checked the link and it is the proper link. Youtube seems to be slow right now. I had to let it queue up for a while when watching it my first time around.
Dooops's forum posts
This is amazing news for someone like me. I only got back into console gaming at the end of last gen and I had gotten an xbox for modding reasons ;P I missed the entire PS1 generation as well because I was hooked to Everquest and that was the only thing that existed. With this being said, once I get a PS3 if I had backwards compatibility for both PS2 and PS1..... oh god. My game queue is huge lol. Luckily I have a 15 month old son so I will try to experience the past gems with him once he is able to play games :)
haha good stuff ahoodedfigure!
You just reminded me of another story.
The same guy in my King's Quest story... I am at his house and he has the original Warcraft. I never played the game before and he tells me it's a great game and to give it a go. I start playing and he says he is going for a dip in the pool. So he leaves and comes back and was like "So how are you liking the game?" I said it's great fun but a little slow going at times. He checks and says... jeeze you are only at the end of the 2nd mission? I was like yeah well it takes forever to kill these guys. He comes closer and says "Why are you attacking him with your peons?" ....*silence*.... .He starts laughing and says "Barracks"..... Oooooohhhhhh lol It would have been interesting to see how far I could have gone with just peons lol!
I love hear stories related to gaming. I'll start.
My first story was when I was about 15 or something and I went over to my buddie's house to stay overnight. He had King's Quest #? I forget which one. Anyhow, I saw the PC box and I was like.... this game looks cool. He says "Yeah but I have been stuck for weeks". "Oh the days before an organized internet". Anyhow, so I am like.. mind if I mess around. He nods. I pop it in and load his last save. I start trying to click on everything and he is behind me saying, "nope, nope, I tried that" - Not trying to be an ass just more matter of factly... I continue this for about 2 hours. A few minutes in he is sitting on a couch nearby and watching TV. He is occasionly glancing at what I am doing. Finally I click on this bundle of hay and there starts a cheery tune along the lines of "We are the maching ants". He LEAPS off the couch and was like... what the hell did you do? I never heard that before!!!!
So the ant spoke to me or something and with what it said he is like "OMG ok I so know what to do now, ok move!" I was like.. fuck you! I just spent 3 hours clicking on every damn thing. We both bursted out laughing. He is like. ok fine I'll tell you my ideas and you play the game. We continued late into the night and beat the game. We still laugh about how he told me to move after I did all the hard work.
Second story, my 10th , 11th or 12th birthday... around that time... I see the gifts on my kitchen table and boy oh boy one of those sure look like a new Nintendo game. I unwrap it with immense expectations and it's!!! ....Black...Bass.... *fake smile* Thanks Mom! I think back about it now and my mom probably just saw that game on sale for 2 bucks or something at the grocery store and got it for me. Nothing funnier than that. There heart is in the right place but they just have no idea about what is a good game or not lol. I am sure many have a similar experience during their youth.
Third story, in grade 5 I find out this nerdy kid has a super nintendo. I had no console of that generation at that time. I befriended him all of a sudden and ohhh hey you have a SNES? Well jeeze I never knew that! Hey maybe I can hang out with you at your place after school? lol This went on for like a week and suddenly some guy is like. "You know he is just using you for your SNES Al?" Al looks at me and was like... is this true. I swear I answered "No, now let's go play SNES". He was like.. ok. LOL I think he was just happy to have a friend. Even if it was because of his SNES.
Anyhow, share you stories! I love hearing about em :)
"@Al3xand3r said:Is it nicely healed now Al3xand3r? "
" That's years old. "
My suggestion is that we add a "I have played this game" button to all the games. As you browse the site you can click that button if you have played the game. I have always wanted to create a list on my own just to see how many games I have played (that I can remember). Advantages for this....
- This will encourage users to visit old games on this page
- You could post stats of which game has been played the most, overall, per console,per genre
- You could see who else has played some old games and perhaps strike up conversations with them
Perhaps you would also be able to have an option for older games where you get notified when a topic/post/blog etc is posted for a certain game.
"I like multiplayer and coop games a lot but I also like single player games a lot to."
I'd say go for Left 4 Dead :)
Yeah, the only thing that might be a road block for some is the amount of time and effort it would take to click on that button for each game you have played.
Granted for those with characters such as mine this is actually the fun part of it. Going back and reminiscing about the games I have played. :)
Also, you wouldn't have to go far back if you did not want to. You could always just start from now on or with this generation or something. To each his own :)
