PC gaming.

Guys, I know I am an old fart. Yes I do. And yes, I am. (If I did not know, why would I be saying this? Mmm?)

Anyhow. I was just cleaning my desk and I stumbled upon the System Shock 2 disk. Yes, I mentioned this game previously but as I was looking at this single CD I felt compelled to try and convey . . . mmm . . . a bit of common sense to those who know naught.

I say, screw graphics and frame rates. I say screw 40” monitors. I say screw all the marketing bull.

Play GOOD games.

and the greatest of games are NOT necessarily the ones that require XXXth century technology to be playable.

Over and out..........

Still playing UFO: Enemy unknown, Fallout and Incubation...
I hate it how today's games have become almost nothing more than console / arcade style games.... (with few notable exceptions)
