latest game you bought

Recommended Posts

I bought games waaaaaay back before broadband was invented. That was the only way to get games. You can't download a game over a 1200 baud modem or even a 56K

modem.

 

Yeah, back in the day the games were smaller. I downloaded plenty of wonderful DOS and Win 3.1 games at 2400 baud, later at 14400 baud. Since most people didn't have CDs, games had to fit on diskettes. Kept them managable.

The last game I bought was probably Civilization 3. I'd love to get Doom or Half Life 2, but my computer (well, the card) isn't quite good enough.

Last games I bought:

 

For PC - NWN: HotU (Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark expansion)

 

For Xbox - Jade Empire

 

Loving both of them too. Not at the expense of time spent with my baby daughter, but as soon as she's asleep I ignore the chores and have a little relaxation time playing some good RPG :-)

Unless you count the free games that came with my soundcard. Then it is rainbowsix 3 and some really bad tomb raider

There is a serious constraint with MMO's, I'm happy to announce that MMO's will not dominate the market, the average gamer can afford one or two monthly accounts if that, but more than this is the time and dedication it takes to get your money out of them, in fact MMO's will get a cold shoulder from most gamers ultimately because even if they were free, who wants to sit on a polygon boat for 40 minutes to get to another continent, or whack on polygon snakes for hours? they could be doing something fast paced or at least remotely interesting. I could list all the great games that have a cult following lasting years or decades, such as XCOM, Elite, the elder scrolls series, ... I doubt any MMO will ever reach that status, because in the end (and especially when a monthly fee is involved)... in the end the user while they might've loved the game, is left with a bad taste in their mouth and a sore rear over the serious humpage Sony Online Entertainment(for example) gave them.

 

So to sum it up 'the trend will continue' until they realize how truly finite the market is for MMOs, and they watch PC Game sales slump when they neglect to publish quality single player and LAN games... I know I for one would rather regress to Rune Quakefest than expect to meet my friends in an online server full of a thousand spoiled brats that wouldn't know work if it bit them on the ass, AND have a good time there... with them.... yeah?!?

 

wtf wtf n00b stole my kill wtf camp elsewhere stfu stfu

 

--

My last game purchase was Unreal Tournament 2004.. I bought it specifically to play with a group of friends that also own it.. Also found Real War Rogue States for $4 on clearance.

 

NumbahWon

 

HL 2

The next game I buy will probably be the Serious Sam sequel. Nothing else except WoW looks interesting. There is no way I am paying a monthly fee to play a video game.

 

 

lol if case you havent realised more and more companys are switch to mmorpgs/pay to play games because they make more money and the trend will continue
