The game that started it all (for me, at least). That and the original Myst (or was it MYST?). Two extremes, and so many fond memories around that time. I remember playing Quake and then getting my first graphics card (3DFX Voodoo). At the time, it was like a night and day difference. My mind was totally blown! Amazed I really wish hardware upgrades were that exciting today, but here I am with my 9 yo cpu and a gtx1070 lol yawn...

Apparently at least 3.7 million of them. Which is quite a bit down from the previous heights, but still reasonably impressive. I was sorta tempted, but the level squish turned me away...

I went back to WoW years ago just to feel the nostalgia, and my first thought was "I can't believe I once loved this game". Then I quit and uninstalled

Give an inch, take a mile. If they start doing things like that, then eventually there will be no game left to play. "Your game gave me heart disease", "Your game made me an alcoholic", "Your game made me have sex with my wife's sister".

Warnings are good enough. If they're good enough for cigarettes, then they're good enough for games. Besides, this isn't anything new. How do gamers (or more importantly, parents) not know this by now? Even movies have this warning.

It's one of those situations where upper management was cracking the whip and pushing it out for the holidays. I can easily understand the state it's in. Just wait a few months, it will be good.

Yeah, my Intel 3570K Core i5 is 8.5 years old, and still chugging. I don't really notice any problem with games. I keep meaning to upgrade to a new AMD, but since this one still works fine, I have a hard time justifying it to myself.

Yeah, if it's just gaming and browsing, then gpu and drives is all you really need to swap out here and there. My problem is that I do a lot of audio/video editing, and the software I use is starting to demand more cpu/cores. It will be nice to have a few of those really fast m.2 nvme modules as well. I've got my newegg build list just waiting for restock, but I think I'll be waiting for quite while

I was thinking the exact same thing when I went back and saw I built this machine in September 2013. For this I even used a previous-generation CPU at the time. The fourth-gen Core 2 processors were already out, but I got an i5-3570K. I overclocked it to 4GHz and it's still running like a top seven years later. I definitely upgraded within 6 months at least once back in the day.

Yup, I'm still sportin' an i7 3930k that came out 9 1/2 years ago. The only reason I think it's time for me to upgrade is because everything is starting to get really hot (and I even replaced cpu fan a couple times), my 32GB or mem is now 24GB (one of the channels is not working. Who needs 32GB anyway?), and my music production software is starting to bog down a bit. Otherwise, gaming is still pretty good (with a 1070). Unfortunately, I picked a pretty bad time to build a new rig, considering that it's not easy to find the components that I want. Oh well, I guess I can go another year Grin2

Just my luck that after 9 1/2 years with the same gaming rig (but I did upgrade my gpu), I decided that this would be the year to finally build a new one (amd 5000 series) W00t

By the time I get my hands on one, Intel will have their 5nm

What do they mean by "play"? I thought gameplay was coming in a future update.

Yeah, getting tougher to find a game with the chars I like to play. Hopefully OW2 (i.e. OW1.5) will bring the player base back

What amazes me is that in a world where AI is currently hyped up to the max, a 16 year old pc game has better AI than just about any game today. Hmm...

The hack 'n slash/action rpg genre has been stagnant for a while now. You'd think that a game released in 2020 would have a bit more innovation.

It will be interesting to see how Diablo 4 turns out. Will it still be spamming left-mouse and seeing loot flip up in the air?

Edit: Yup

It's a fun game with friends. But you can definitely feel the "Early Access", because after a short while, you feel like it's missing a lot of content. I'll be going back to this one at some point.
