Old Gamers don't die, they just get a new life...

This post is more than 2 years old.

So what happens when you give Gen Y (or is it Z) a few hours to play old games?


And in case anyone is curious, I love the old games. I'm pretty darn good at Galaga as well (can normally get over 100k). My son loves Pac Man and is beginning to get good at DigDug.

Heh, I was a BIG mud player in college, even did a lot of development as well. LPC was a nice language, but I had the most fun when I built nice base classes. I still remember adding a basic concept of time to a mud, well, in my zone. It was pretty cool - my zone was the only one where the sun would rise and fall, church bells would ring out, etc. I also built a pretty nifty NPC class. It allowed you to easily add canned text responses to NPCs in games.
