    /tg/ is often... obsessed with video games. But there are a LOT of GOOD video games from further back than /tg/ usually discusses. Like this wonderful gem. I doubt any of you could guess where its from, and if you did discover it, you wouldn't believe it.

    But lets have a thread about some of the great old games. And I mean old. Like before 95.

    We will start with the Gold Box games. ANCIENT stuff, but wonderful in its simplicity. Death Knights of Krynn. In the first game, Champions of Krynn, you helped beat back an evil army, their plot to corrupt more dragon eggs, and generally won the day.

    In the start of the second one, you attend a memorial to an important NPC who died in the first game. The game starts with his undead body riding a dracolich into the party and shouting that all was for naught, for now Lord Soth is gonna fuck you up royal. The entire game has a twisted, macabre feel from then on, and you REALLY feel like like undeath is coming...

    Plus, at the end of it, you actually kill Lord Soth, and while it is hard enough that I never actually beat it, well, Soth ended up in Ravenloft *somehow*....

    I assure you sir, I am quite sufferable, and yet, everything I have posted is a TSR product! I belong here far more than planes or porn.

    The next game is actually my first PC game ever. It was Secret of the Silver Blades, another part of the Gold Box series. It turns out there were several runs of Gold Box games, one in Dragonlance, one in Forgotten Realms, and a few stand-alone ones.

    SoSB takes place in a remote section of FR, since I've yet to hear of it. But the game is wonderful, and a little amusing, since the very start of the game, you are plucked naked from the sky and dropped down in front of a well, because the villagers had wished for heroes.

    You can later even use their wishing well for your own personal use. After you beat the dragon guarding it of course. It was my first game, and scared the hell out of me.

    And the BBEG was a lich frozen in ice at the spine of the world, so fuck you WoW. Also included the only confirmed use of Chainmail Bikini I've ever seen, from Vala there. Also a dwarf named Derf. Haha!

    Indeed, Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday for the PC. WONDERFUL game, WONDERFUL setting. Yes, Buck Rogers, is a wonderful setting. An interesting mix of pulp and grimdark. I personally YEARN for the day I could run a game in Buck Rogers.

    And no, not a D&D refluff. It actually had its own box set. It used almost the same system, but it is its own system, much as Gamma World is.

    OP is Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday. Amazing if not unforgiving game.

    I know this is 96, but this game is basically a computer version of /tg/ down pat. The game plays like a mix of a card/strategy/board game. It's abandonware now, and you can find it abandonia, and it seems to run fine on more recent OSes, it just can't be windowed despite having the option and runs at really low res and fullscreen.

    Funny you should say that, since neither you nor >>8763649
    Are talking about their games either. You cannot just post a pic and leave it at that.

    Finishing off the Gold Box series is Dark Queen of Krynn. The sequel to Death Knights of Krynn, the game ramps up dramatically the stakes. One of my most favorite parts is where a flight of dragons are attacking a city... and you fight them off, almost single handedly. Granted, you have a fabled Dragonlance, but only one... of course, the game caps your level at around level 40 for thieves, so you are veritable forces of nature on your own.

    Also a massive graphical update.

    Fair point.

    It's a really good point and click adventure from Virgin.

    It's set in a dystopian future and you play a character living in some barren shit-hole village in the Australian outback. One day a helicopter comes, kills a bunch of people and kidnaps you. It then takes you to this huge city where it crashes and you escape. You have to spend the game exploring the city to find out who you are and why you were brought there.

    My description's pretty shit, but it's a really good game. Abandonware, too.

    Check it out here:

    Boys and girls (who am I kidding), this is Battle Isle 2.

    A turn based strategy game, including all those things that have become unpopular these days like the need to refuel and rearm your units and planes that actually crash once they've run out of fuel.

    Even back in '94 this game modelled shifting weather conditions, rivers cold freeze over, allowing your units to cross them or heavy rain could reduce the movement rate of your tanks.

    You had access to a wide variety of units ranging from infantry, to tanks, planes, trains and ships. All available in a wide variety of flavours.

    Best of all, it was fun.

    Alright, then. Warsong. Genesis-Era wargame. A bit hard to understand without the manual, at least it was for 10-year-old me. You play as Garret, the prince of Baltia. The game STARTS with your fucking castle under siege, and the first of twenty scenarios is you fighting your way out of your own home, to gather troops to retake the castle. Shit gets crazy from there.

    Subwar 2050.

    It was basically wing commander under water. Complete with gigantic carrier submarines, hiding between thermal layers and the whole active/passiv sonar dynamic. Your missions were rather diverse from examining wreckage at a depth of 4km to infiltrating offshore complexes with spys. In one mission you were accompanied by a tv submarine and had to fight for some tv show because it payed your bills.

    BaSS is more than just abandonware---the devs outright made it freely available, and gave the ScummVM developers the source so that they could perfect support for it. In fact, ScummVM hosts the game download.

    Revolution Software are Good People and they should feel Good. So happy I have a boxed copy and they got my money at the time.

    Because it's not relevant to our interests. Most of these are thinky-games, if not outright CRPGs. Everyone knows DOOM, and its excellence is in its frentic action (cover systems lol wut?). Pic related.

    Take a pot and fill it halfway with water, get it boiling.
    Take a metal container and fill it with gummy bears or other jelly candy and place it in the boiling pot.

    Wait until the candy is completely melted, remove it and let it cool.

    We'll leave out the obvious one, Ultima 7, as it is too frequently listed as one of the greatest RPGs of all time and most of /tg/ was alive when it was released. So excluding that, here's a tier list of the best of Ultima:

    Ultima 4 - The best. Fuck you, this beats the shit out of Oblivion. Complete freedom, you have to go around and discover artefacts (usually be investigating and speaking to the right people).

    Ultima 5 + 6 - more of this, also completely awesome. Five sets you as a freedom fighter in a world fallen to dark powers. Six sees you become the central figure in a war between humans and gargoyles.

    1-3 are weird science-fantasy. 1 would be top-tier awesome if it weren't for the space sections and their physics simulations. 2 is cool but I've never been able to get into it, and 3 is inferior to 4-6.

    Ultima 8 is not an Ultima game, and Ultima 9 never existed.

    One of the things I remember about Wasteland's difficulty is that my party spent much of the last part of the game wounded or close to dying. Any one of them would take a near-lethal wound, collapse, get treated so that he could get up and fire off whatever overpowered weapon he had, then fall again from yet another injury.

    Oh, and it saved the game automatically, and there was only one save slot. You had to make damn sure your party was in some sort of fighting shape all the time. THANKS INTERPLAY!

    It's still one of my favorite games to this day.

    Then he'd get stuck in seaweed or hit by a storm and backhand me with a hardcover book.

    Once upon a time, there was thing called Imagination. It worked like the what-is-left-unseen terror principle to make things far more engrossing than any explicit attempt to represent them.

    Today, we have largely eradicated imagination thanks to a strict regeme of bombarding all children with an endless stream of mostly-realistic TV and games from as early an age as possible.

    I'm an Atarifag, but I have to concede that the Amiga ruled that era hardwarewise (not least as it was designed by refugees from the Atari 8-bit era).

    Early PCs were complete and utter shit. I wish they hadn't trampled the opposition, because I'd much rather that it were Amiga or Atari or Acorn rather than Apple who were the survivor---especially as the latter now more-or-less make PCs.

    This often overlooked gem is like Civ-/tg/ edition.

    You're one of several powerful magical emperors in a fantasy realm. Your goal is to fuck up all the other mages and rule the world (of course).

    You can customize your ruler and choose a fantasy race. You start with one town and have to expand/conquer.

    The game plays like Civ but the customizing aspect adds so much depth and fun that it beats it's inspiration.

    You can conquer the world with halflings.

    I set up a Windows 95 VM specifically so that I could run You Don't Know Jack on my non-Windows laptops and drag them to parties.

    Warioware Party? Pah. I've got a sardonic gameshow that /actually had a really good UK localised version/!

    Haha, holy shit, yeah. We played that one too. Though being eurofags from a skiing region boarding just did not strike home quiet as much as skiing.

    heh, fuck yeah time commando. My biggest gripe is the lack of save system. You die, you die and you start over. I got to the virus centre once, and that was it. Also its not so much time travel, as it is historically accurate virtual reality. I believe.

    Yeah. I don't like his stories and I think he's a smug hack, but when I read the above about the development of the game I was really impressed.

    I want to run a campaign based off of this, using the one roll engine. Sound like a good idea?

    Also bump.
