Anyone else replaying old games ?
>played the shit out of D2LoD
>dropped it like 15 years ago
>started play D3
>it's so easy
>no unique builds, items or stories
>go back to D2 about a week ago
>binge playing it ever since
Wbu r9k ?
I enjoy D3, and while it's probably not as good as D2, I don't want to go back to D2 because it will make me nostalgic for better times in my life
Also isn't the online population of D2 like 90% bots now, that is unsettling to me for some reason
D3 was fun at launch, and I enjoy it because it was a new easy hacknslah game.
But what it has become, I don't even know. And I haven't gotten into d2 pvp yet, so I didn't know about that
>tried WoW vanilla private server 6 months year ago
>tried 2007 Runescape 1 year ago
quit them both after a month or so, it's just not the same, family. Being a kid and playing games was just such a happy moments in my life. No worries about nogf, no responsibilities except some easy schoolwork, actually had friends to play with etc.
can't be relived
Prince of Persia
Dark Seed 1 and 2
Dare 2 Dream
Baldur's Gate Series
Not really. The game that impacted my childhood the most was omikron : the nomad soul. The game I played the most was Starcraft.
>war and peace
I'll never get tired of this meme.
My childhood from 11-15 was spent playing brood war for endless hours on custom games.
>tfw you will never again be part of a diplo clan, mastering your role in a pointless custom game only to have it destroyed when sc2 came out.
Fuck sc2 man.
>escapism, the picture
couldn't the same be said almost any other hobby, tho ?
people will always find a way to remove boredom from their lives, for some it happens to be videogames.
I was playing like mad and having fun but then Dragon's Dogma came out, now i just can't stop DD. I'm in the beginning of the NM with my amazon, i don't remember D2 being so fucking amazing like this, i fucking love the builds and the loot.
You just are looking at it through a normie value system. To a normie reading war and peace has some merit. But it only has merit insofar as you can tell other elitists that you are reading it and gather their validation. Those that truly live for themselves don't have to choose pursuits based on what will garner the most validation from others.
I used to play ps1 and ps2 when I was in high school. Recently I wanted to get back into playing video games, but couldn't justify paying $400 for a ps4 when I didn't even know if I would like it anymore. I bought a ps3 for half the price. I kind of wish I had bought the ps4. I play GTA Online and it is filled with little kids who I can only assume have the ps3 because it was a hand me down from their older brother. I also started playing Diablo 3 and I'm super addicted to it.
It is just weird knowing i'm playing these games for the first time and they're old news and irrelevant now. Everybody is playing fallout 4 on pc or ps4.
Man this picture is so true but i think its too late for me
video games are all i know and i just instinctively reach for them whenever the opportunity presents itself, i cant imagine life without them
It depends on what you make of it. If you have a career, a partner, a house, a generally healthy lifestyle and play a few hours a week, it's a hobby. If you're a 28 years old fat basement dweller virgin NEET with no employment history, it's the drug that's killing you.
It depends on your situation. The same can be said of hard drugs.
Maybe. Or maybe a few years from now you'll look back at your younger self and the decisions you took and regret wasting too much time on some things.
Oh I played Age of Empires 2 a lot too. What a comfy game.
I don't know what to tell you anon.
I almost exclusively replay old games nowadays. Muh escapism.
>playing D2 when Path of Exile exists
>super star wars
say what you want about these games but they have collectively brought me thousands of hours of entertainment for well over two decades
