Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
They don't make 'em like they used to [Old Games Thread]
The debate part: I feel like i've really missed out on a golden age of games growing up. My firends are currently getting me into things like Fallout, Civilization 3 etc. There seems to be an immersion and level of choice not present in some of the more graphically focussed games of today. How far would you hold this to be true? Do you feel that games have progressed or regressed? Or has gameplay progressed in some areas whilst regressing in others. If so, do you feel that this new 'emphasis' (if one indeed exists) is a good thing or not?
The help/advice part: Recommend me some old PC games! (Planescape Torment? Civ 4? Alpha Centauri? I've heard good things about these... would anyone here agree? Basically anything that would run on an old computer, and something you feel has a 'spark' that makes them worthy of going back to after all this time [my priorities when gaming are good story/character development, and/or lots of choice in how I choose to play/develop my game] - So yeah, I feel the need to immerse myself in something and could do with some recommendations!
