Do we need to play ME1 to understand ME2's story?

Ant, if you never played Mass Effect it's still a good game to play (and a HD mod helps as well). Is it essential? No, but I will say even with ME 3's crappy ending, it's worth the price of admission.
OK and thanks.

As I recall, the story is pretty self-contained, although there will be occasional references to events/characters from the first game that will make more sense if you've played it.
Thanks.

I was, too (born in 75). Carrie's recent admission that she and Ford were boning on the side would have blown my little mind.


I was born in 75 too! The 80's was the best time.
Yep, 80s were rad. We're old now.

I remember Lode Runner just being running around picking up boxes while bad guys chased you...
Based on original 80s game, the bad guys were robots. Lode Runner was a human collecting gold. http://www.loderunnerclassic.com/ ...

Nope, I meant computer games. Specifically games available on the University of Illinois computer system PLATO. The precursor to most everything you see on the Internet today -- forums, person to person chat, multi-person interactive games. Basically we were doing that starting in the late 70s and laughed our collective asses off at the "creation" of these things on the Internet.

There were lots of time consuming games in the 80s to play:
- The Ultima series (spent SO much time in Ultima IV)
- Lode Runner/Jumpman
- Telengard
- Pinball Construction Set
- Archon
- Dungeon Master
- Prince of Persia
- Battletech: Crescent Hawk Inception
- Simcity
- Tetris
- Elite
- Germany 1985
- Kampfgruppe

And those are just the ones I played on my IBM PC and C-64 that I remember.
Lots of of good games, but on my Apple //c. Jumpman was Lode Runner?
Jumpman waz c64 Lode Runner.
Interesting. I remember a LR port for C64. It used red colors instead of blue like in Apple 2 port. It looks like Jumpman was from Epyx while LR was from B0rderbund.

23!!!

Oh and an IRC guy said this when I said happy birthday to DOOM: "DOOM! is not a person, it's a game. It may have a 'birth' day, but it can't have a happy one, as it is not a sentient or semi-sentient being, or any sort of being, for that matter. This is really more of an anniversary of a launch date."
