    Default Video Game Thread

    Any avid gamers out there?

    Currently there is a boom in games during this pandemic. I really got immersed myself, with Lord of the Rings online, especially since they unlock a lot of content for free until the end of the month.

    An old favourite is Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and Lemmings. I started with my C64 and those games still have a place in my heart like Epyx Summer Games, Bubble Bobble.

    For those retro gamers (or want to be) there is this great site:

    Yes, I remember Heroes of Might and Magic 3, I played it when it came out in 1999. A nice game. I used to play RPG games from Bioware - Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment, Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights. Other excellent games were Deus Ex and System Shock.
    The last games I played were Witcher 3 and Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Dark Souls.
    I don't have that much time to sink myself into an RPG game anymore, so I can maybe play 1 game a year. Though I will probably play Cyberpunk 2077 (from the same authors who made Witcher 3)

    Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights, forgot about those.

    I tried out World of Warcraft after LOTRO, and was disappointed. It just didn't have the humour LOTRO has.

    During this pandemic I managed to repair the controller of my 1982 Vectrex game console.
    (aided by a you-tube tutorial)

    I have 11 Vectrex games in my collection, so I'm rediscovering these now.

    Here's a vid introducing this console =>

    Impressive. I feel we lost something after the old style arcade games got replaced by high-graphics games that have less play value. it's not the same with online similar type games or on the phone or ipad. Something with the joystick / hardware I think.
