So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

I recently started playing Mafia and In Cold Blood on PC this week. The reasons would bore you, but I'm really enjoying it.

When I first played them it was on a old Gateway and they hardly ran. Now I'm playing them on a slightly better computer and the are running smoothly.

What games that are 5+ years old you are playing right now, and are you enjoying them more right now thanks to better hardware, or nostalgia, or appreciate them with a slightly more mature mind?

I've been playing a lot of WCW vs NWO on the N64 at work. It's 10 minute bouts, does that count?

Dipping the head in counts as fucking, so ten minutes of gaming counts.

Right????

I've got FF7 set up in my bedroom. I play that before I sleep sometimes. Of course, sometimes I never go to sleep because of it. /myweekend.

Nah, man. Roller Coaster Tycoon rocks.

Roller Coaster Tycoon is awesome especially when you get bored with your park and make the roller coasters deadly and by making it launch off the rails and into the crowd below.

I had some good times with that game.

Got a new laptop almost a year ago, and Civilization IV+BTS to go with it. Been my go-to PC game for a while now.

The original Roller Coaster Tycoon was so addicting. Sometimes I hear the music from that game in my head. Age of Empires 3 is another excellent one. Its historical significance reminds me of Civilization, another series I love.

It's a shame that both series have gotten worse since their golden days.

In the spirit of Halloween, I'm playing Nosferatu for the SNES. It plays a lot like the original Prince of Persia, but somehow it manages to have even clunkier controls. It's fun to play, really hard and frustrating, but still lots of fun. The awful controls bring a lot of horror in the gameplay and the overall atmosphere is really spooky too.
