    Sorry, I just dont buy that. And I have been playing games since before Mario Bros (...not super, nor world), and long after.


    Lots of genres and games have a special place in my heart and memory (I'm looking at you, Phantasy Star). But modern games can tell stories in ways that were not even imaginable in the days of 8 bit platformers on the SNES.

    My first game console was the Sega Master System. But I played DOS games and Apple IIc games long before that. (Those three images I posted above are Apple II games).


    No side-scroller-platformer holds a candle to Bioshock Infinite or Half Life 2 (etc)

    Even one of my favorite games of all time (Deus Ex), does not hold up well by today's standards.

    BioShock Infinite: Rail Battle

    Half-Life 2 EP2

    Several favourites, for different reasons.

    Doom: my first multiplayer gaming experience, first with a friend in separate rooms liked by a long serial cable, then across town via dial-up modem. The sound of a chainsaw still raises the hair on the back of my neck. :)

    Fallout 3: I'll never forget that "holy.... wow!" moment stepping out of Vault 101 for the first time. It was very early morning and the atmospheric landscape just blew me away.

    Mass Effect: for the story arc and sheer scale of the game. Little things like the ending and various minor plot holes didn't spoil something truly exceptional in terms of storytelling and involvement.

    Falcon 4: Not so much a game, more a way of life for over two years and still a benchmark for combat flight sims today. Multiplayer missions with over a dozen human pilots from across the globe were the norm. Timezones cease to matter with enough adrenaline and beer. :)

    There are multiple games I'd count as my favourites, but what springs to mind right now are Homeworld 1 + 2, with their impending HD re-releases next month. They're decent RTS games, but with the second game in particular, the beautiful art design and the haunting music make it incredibly atmospheric.

    Well worth looking into if you're the kind of person who is inordinately excited by the phrase 'hyperspace jump'.

    I am a long time and big fan of strategy games. Specially trun based, as RTS is normally not strategy but tactics dependent only.

    Because turn based games allow you to think a proper strategy, gives you time to devise a plan and put it in motion, I have being struggling to find a good mobile strategy game.

    Buy only until I found Age od Strategy. It is a medieval strategy turn based game, with very enjoyable graphics, smooth gameplay and REALLY impressive in what you can imagine and put in action!

    The buildings and units are ver realistic to the commitment of strategy and the FACT that is really free - no, it is not FREEMIUM! You won't face endless adds and annoying requests for buy buy buy.

    But what really makes it real fun is the multiplayer... oh man, this gets really intriguing as you see your strategies being developed and countered by the perception of the other players!
    Due Its turn based position, you have TIME to think, enjoy and have fun.

    If you are looking for a game to put your mind but not get stressed by constantly overrated shootings, just download it, get a group of good players and enjoy.

    My user there is taliesin. Hope to see some of you around.
