Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

She played Guitar Hero with my son and enjoyed it. She wouldn't even attempt playing WoW with me. The last game I got her to play was either Cosmo's Cosmic Adventures or Tetris (back in the early '90s).

Hmmmm. What about some online games like cribbage, or other card games that you can compete with. Online farkle on Facebook is particularly addicting.

It took me months to get her on FB and she only looks at it once a week. She just hates computers.

My stepmom is that way, I don't even think she knows how to use e-mail. She makes my younger brother do stuff for her. I personally don't understand how people DON'T like computers.

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

I have one more comment about a game that was the best for me at the time, not because I liked it so much (actually, I really did like it) but because of how my grandson reacted to it and the fond memory I have for the game and its surrounding events.

When Mech Warrior 2 first came out, I had a copy of that one pretty quickly. My stepson, daughter-in-law, and grandson were living with us temporarily while they were getting their finances cleaned up - which they did fairly soon. But it meant that for a while, my #1 grandson was underfoot.

He heard all the racket from MW2, with zaps and explosions and cannon shots and the like. So one evening he crawled into my room while I was playing and being a toddler, just HAD to explore. He said, "Paw paw play BOOM, T. play BOOM." Thereafter, "BOOM" was the name for any computer game that involved explosions. He would say "Play BOOM, Paw paw" then hold up those baby arms in hopes I would take him to the computer so he could play.

I allowed him to sit on my left knee and fire the guns. (Quickly had to go online to learn the "infinite ammo" cheat right after that started. Aiming, he learned; ammo conservation, he didn't.) So there we were, him happily shooting the guns and me controlling the joystick. Until...

One night he was shooting and I was steering. He started looking at the joystick and the keyboard and kept looking back and forth between the two of them. You could almost hear the little gears grinding. Then, in his baby voice (he was maybe around three) he clearly said "Other knee paw-paw." So I swapped him to my other knee, he grabbed the joystick, and I never played that game again until they finally bought their house to move out. Oh, I loaded the game and helped with the controls, but he steered, he shot with the joystick trigger (and became a darned good shot), and he made cute little comments entirely appropriate to the moment.

So there is a fond spot in my heart for Mech Warrior 2.

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

I still see the Operation Flashpoint (GOTY) with ECP and other Mods the best game ever, in all values...
Also the VBS1 and DF5 BHD TeamSabre..
But OPFP is the best! I spend hours playing and modifying missions,...it's wornderful, realist battle, guns, planning, weapons terrians, effects, and all..

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

I had one with MotoGP bike races. In its day it was quite advanced. The tracks were pretty close to the real layouts. I had to drive it all with the keyboard though. Never got far beyond the basic level where it managed the gear changes automatically. Too easy to blow the engine on the advanced. Where was that rev limiter?

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

I am shocked that no-one has mentioned the original Civilization as one of the best games ever.

Also games like:
Grand Prix
X-Com 1+2 (rest were rubbish!)
Freespace 1+2
Total Annihilation
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (Text adventure game for those that don't know)

How I miss the days when the graphics weren't the most important part of playing a game.

Modern Games:
Grand Theft Auto Series (Keeps getting better)
Fallout 3 (Lost months to this game!) I won't download the expansion packs as I have too much to do right now to lose further months to this game!
