I used to play Doom an awful lot in my teens. I actually preferred making wads to playing it a lot of the time and I'd lug my 486 PC over to a mate's house and we'd play one-on-one deathmatch over a serial link. It was awesome.

What else? The early Command & Conquer games were big favourites. The Discworld point and click adventures. Interstate 76. Duke Nukem 3D felt like a massive step up from Doom (and included a map builder with the game) but then you realised it was still fake 3D. I had to buy a Pentium to run Quake and finally we had real 3D. Ooh, and I got a 3DFX card to play Hexen II. Heady times.

I stopped playing games almost completely in my 20s and didn't play anything much until Minecraft caught my attention. That's still pretty much iall I play on PC.

I really don't appreciate stories in games much, I'd rather watch a film for story. And I don't know why highly stylized ultra violent fps is the only subgenre of game I ever enjoyed, I am a peaceful person.


If you like those games, you should give Dusk a try.


Thanks for the recommendation. I kinda stopped playing games in my 20s, though, and only recently picked it up again because I started working with VR, and consider playing VR-games as research for work.... Btw.: VR games aren't great yet. The controls are just too awkward for a gaming experience. Even in very good ones, like the latest Half-life, the game mechanics of running, shooting and reloading are just... Meh.

Dragon's Dogma. A flawed but fun game. No idea why griffins are so rare.

Nearing a total of 600 games on Steam, it's hard for me to narrow down a favorite out of all. I can do favorite by series, genre, developer, publisher, year of release, etc., but not by out of all.
