It's an old text-format dungeon game.

I also played the crap out of Doom.

Amazing that we have gone from this:

Just wait till it becomes practical to unleash the full potential of 64 bit. You will have the equivalent of what is considered a supercomputer now on your desktop. We are aren't even taping 64 bit at 1% of its full potential. Just imagine the kind a graphics you could get with 1 Petabyte  Videocard and a total of 32 Petabytes of system memory, and only time will tell if processors will ever be capable of going past 4ghz without burning up.

It was fun, but a good way to wear out the spacebar on your keyboard.

Just on a lark, I picked up a copy of "Max Payne", an FPS game, a few days ago - $30 at Wal-mart.

Back in the day I spent a fair number of hours playing Wolfenstein 3D and Doom. This FPS is whoa, way mo betta.

But I honestly can't play these games the way I used to any more. Too much going on.

I remember playing on a pinball machine in 8th grade....

First time I played PacMan was probably in a bar...when I was old enough to get into one and legally buy a drink....    :thatsright:
Just hand over the chocolate...back away slowly...far away....and you won't get hurt....

Save the Earth... it's the only planet with chocolate.

The newest Max Payne?

I didn't like it.  Got it for my 360 and it wasn't as near as good as the old ones I used to play on PC.  Or maybe I am getting older.

I guess it's the new one. Max Payne 3 is on the box. For PC. I don't have an X-box or Wii or any of that kind of thing. If it can't be done on the computer, it ain't worth my time. I ain't buying another damned box to play a video game.  :-)
