Dude, that’s not old school. Ascii based dungeons with alphabet characters representing monsters .... Now that’s school.
Haha, my gaming exp. started with TES III: Morrowind and Grimrock had me looking up Dungeon Master, EOTB, etc.
This thread is giving me an excellent education in the history of PC gaming!
He wasn’t even born when those games were made ;)
Side note - For the console gamers out there, look into the PS2/3 games Xenosaga (and Xenogears for the PS1), the “Tales of XXXXXX” games and the JRPG Shin Begemi Tensi Persona series.
VERY in dept plotlines and hundreds of hours of entertainment at used game prices.
Side note 2: I often get into discussions with people on gaming and how it’s for kids. Funny when it’s usually with people who grew up on them, stopped at Nintendo 8 bit and have no idea what an Elder Scrolls type game actually is.
Imagine the dollar per hour entertainment value alone. But what’s really funny to me is that these same people think nothing of reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy/ watching the Star Wars series.
Kid stuff indeed ;)
