    One word: Does not hold up.

    Tried to play it a few years ago and it has not dated gracefully. I shamefully gave up on it rather quickly. It's shameful because I wanted to get into this acclaimed game even though it was old, but I just couldn't.

    I had no idea what this is, and after just looking at some screenshots, I would like to continue the old tradition off killing of the dinousaurs.



  • @bard91 How dare you. Welp, time to kill all the new things.



  • Oh hell.... :joy:



  • Would the world really be that much worse off without Rogue-likes??? ...Except Crypt of the Necrodancer???

    I was always an Age of Empires guy, I was never as taken with the Red Alert games, I just found them....boring...

    I never really liked this art-style in worms. I have always preferred the original look. Games ok though.

    I'm not huge on RTSs since I suck at them, but from the ones I've played, Starcraft is my least favorite by a lot, so I would much rather Age of Mythology stay.

    I'm killing Age of Mythology out of spite. StarCraft is far superior. I guess no RTS is going to win this one.

    Let's face it. There are better Elder Scrolls games, and better games on this list.

    I think that Myst was pretty good once upon a time, but I feel like games like TTP and The Witness have kind of improved on much of what made Myst interesting to me.

    This game is so NEW and we can't have that here. No not one bit. Also, while charming, certainly does not match up to the majesty of the other games on this list.

    You do realize the "original look" was low res and only lasted for 2 games?



  • @Oscillator Yes, but that's just me. I love Worms: Directors Cut on my Amiga way better than Armageddon.

    Never really liked the Amnesia games, they felt overrated and a bit "omg these are so scary lololol" but turning out to be annoying puzzles

    Unreal Tournement was better anyway :P



  • So it is true: PC gamers actively rebel against good games.

    TIL.



  • @parasitepaladin I've personally never understood the argument about not giving praise to a game because of when it was released. In Undertale's case, it has been out for over a year, what is the deadline? 5 years minimum before we can praise a game? I suppose the logic is you remember more recent memories more fondly but eh, I'm not one to linger in nostalgia too long. I'm guessing you did a genocide run, didn't you? You monster...

    Why? WA runs better and has WAY more features, including one of the best physics engines ever made. The original games certainly have charm to them, but are lacking in almost every other area. It's like the difference between a mobile game and a MMORPG (some exaggeration).
