Hey, I liked Rockstar. You're talking about the text game by Wizard Games, right? I wish there was some way to slow down my computer so it would be playable, but the text flies by too fast to read.

I liked Civ 1. Civ 2 was great. But I absolutely hated Civ 3. It's the game I most regret spending money on.

I remember back when my computer ran DOS 3.3 as an OS and everyone thought a 32 MB HD was 'more space than you'll ever need!'. The man I went on to marry (and later divorce) said 'hey I've got this cool new game. You'll love it'. It was Commander Keen. I absolutely hated it. Is anyone really surprised that I divorced him, given his poor judgement in computer games ...

And if we're talking about games we hate - who could forget 'MinerVGA'

Civ II may well be the greatest game ever. I probably spent more time on it I did on course work for any two classes I took during a given term my freshman year of college, and the game still rules.

The Oregon Trail rocked as well. There was no better way to spend time in the old elementary school Apple IIe lab. "You have died of dysentery."

I never knew dysentary was fatal.

I have fond memories of Oregon Trail and Amazon Trail. Maybe because of the hunting/fishing parts.

And finding new ways to fail my trek.

There was this one game that appeared to be the reason everyone asked about the relation between FantaSoft and Spiderweb Software - called Realmz or something.

Now, make no mistake, I've played Exile I, so I have seen an excellent game struggle not to get pulled down by its lousy interface. But Realmz has a worse interface than that, so much so that I was unable to make out any excellence in the plot or game (if there was any). It was mostly trial and error to see what all those buttons did, let alone moving.

Oh, but I've seen worse. I've forgotten them though.

It was back in the day. Learn about the wonders of dysentery here. I think dying from it would rank right up there with dying from contact with a Portugese man o'war.

As far as I know, the original Oregon Trail was just about impossible to win. You could play as strategically as you wanted for the first 95% of the game, but the arcade-style end where you guided your caulked wagon down a river was unreasonably difficult for a fourth grader, at least at the time. Mind you, the original NES had only just come out.

I used to quite enjoy MUDding (around 1999-2001), but playing Runescape is somewhere down there with doing harm to your genitals with a rusty spoon in fun factor.

Life is the worst game ever. I'm not talking about the board game or the computer game, if there is one, but life. Y'know why? Two reasons. First, not only are other people rude, but if you try to correct their rudeness they'll gang up on you. Second, you die at the end.

Hunh. Maybe it's not so bad after all!

Not that I aint still gonna buy Civ 4 soon after it comes out though. :)

Realmz. I used to really like that game.

It was one of the first RPG games i played, along with the original Exile. It was a real shame that the first/free scenario sucked total ass and had no plot.

If you bothered to play any of the subsequent scenarios, they actually had plots and linearity, and made the game a whole lot more enjoyable. City of Bywater, i think the first scenario was called (if you could call it a scenario), reflected really badly on the game itself and that would've hurt sales. The first scenario could be compared with Avernum/Exile 3, JUST the below-the-surface bit. There are lots of little things to do, all of which amount to nothing, and the scenario ends when you bother to leave the valley/caves.

Effectively, Realmz was a bit like BoE, it was just a framework to play scenarios in (although the Fantasoft ones held some form of linearity).

Anyway, i just went off into a tangent of memories from a bout 8 years back... *wakes up*

Hey, I've got an idea; why don't we start talking about good games now too while continuing to bash the bad games.

I like Descent, which is a great game for older computers but unfortunately runs too fast on newer computers to really be playable without proper adapter programs. :(

Good idea. Descent is a good game. I watched my dad play it when I was a kid, and now I learned to be better than him, making him mad. :D

Yea, Oregon trail was actually rather easy to win (or at least I was really lucky or something).

Dungeon keeper. Now THAT was a game.
I really loved that and played it constantly.

Drakel said MoM, which stands for:
Master of Magic by SimTex. A fantastic game after it was patched, although small in scale compared to modern games. You can download it from: Home of the Underdogs .
If are interested enough to look up that game, Master of Orion by SimTex is also worth investigating, also from Home of the Underdogs .

I remember Oregon Trail, it was pretty easy to win. And you didn't have to take the river at the end.

A lil' birdie told me that Civ2 and it's expansions were released free somewhere, maybe in a game mag.
I prefer FreeCiv myself.

EDIT: Dungeon Keeper is also on Home of the Underdogs.

Incredibly dumb though the AI on it was (and I haven't yet got round to downloading the Underdogs copy where they improved it) Ascendancy was still a great game.

Hey, I've got another idea. Along with discussing good and bad games, let's post some links to good games you can download for free. Anyone know some good ones?

Sorry, I had to.

There is a hugo game that I have played before, where he is in a jungle after he crashed a plane and his woman got bitten by a spider. I liked it, although I can't remember how to get out of the trap that the witchdoctor places on you when you enter his hut.

Taskmaker and Tomb of the Taskmaker are pretty good games, although they're ancient in videogame standards. The registration codes are 511-KKQQQ-WWHP(taskmaker) and S14-DB6VY-TT8T (tomb of the taskmaker). The company went bankrupt and released the codes so it's legal for me to give them to you.

Taskmaker! Another game i loved. The sounds at the beginning were so corny. Some over-deepened voice which boomed "The TOOOOOMB of the TASKMAKER!"

Oh man. I played too many old games when i was like 12. It's so cool to remember them though.
