What would you call a very old game?

I just googled for 'very old games' and was surprised by most of the games that people considered 'very old.' I was looking for resources on things like (the original ) rogue, star trek, or hunt the wumpus, level stuff. From the 1970s. So it got me thinking... What do people think of as 'very old' n...

Re: XBox 360

Has anyone soft-modded the 360 yet?

It would be good to get linux, mame, emulators, and program home-brew without all thr M$ costs on there.

Expanded or UnExpanded? A version of Bubble Bobble is probably doable, and you wouldn't need a smooth scroll for the screen movement.

Re: selling up

I don't really have a 'collection' as most people on thin site now seem to descried/think of it... I more have a 'hord,' which has more accumulated rather than been collected over the years. I have sold a few things... mostly zx81, spectrum (including an Interface1, interface 2, and a micro-drive),,...

What game would you like to see remade for the VIC-20

I've been thinking about writing a VIC-20 game for a while, and was considering attempting a re-make or de-make for it.

What games would you like to see a VIC version of?


Feel free to take a look at my Vectrex stuff, and be realistic :wink:

Re: Recommend me some DS games

Entirely depends on what you like!

If you like shooters you cant go far wrong with Geometry wars Galaxies, or Space Invaders Extreme.

If you like more cerebral adventure type game you can do a lot worse than Theresia.

Re: Do you still have an old PC for gaming

The old Pentium still has a 3.5" drive built in, and I rescued the 5.24" drive from the 486. This means the pentium will have to loose one of it's internal hartd drives though, to free up the case space!

Re: Do you still have an old PC for gaming

What about running and or installing games from the original 5.25", 3.5" disks?

Are DOS emulators generally fine with that?

Re: Discuss Time! Issue 157

It has to be the Legacy of Kane/Soul Reaver series. It deserves a proper ending after Defiance.

I'd also like to see a new Sykes of Arcadia, where you can reach the higher and lower levels talked about, or vaguely used in the original.

Anybody got one they don't use that they would be willing to sell for a reasonable price, or swap for other stuff?

Re: What anime are you watching thread

I think the last one I watched was ether Attack on Titan, or maybe Black Butler... Or possibly Black Lagoon, I watched that fairly recently as well. What are you calling 'anime' I watched a few Netflix exclusives lately as well, but the names escape me just now... one was something about a high-scho...
