What was the game he showed a clip of at the end?Team Fortress.No, it was definitely unreal tournament.
Mistaking Unreal Tournament for Team Fortress, lol. Really?it was definitely unreal tournament,^this.
Thank you for the walk down memory lane! Even if you forgot the two hour raid wipes. Ahhh, good times.
played EQ (nor much) and DAoC (3 years) and i have to say THANKS for the memories!
HELL YES LAVA GIANT CTF.I hated playing red. Blue's flag was hella-easy to defend with shock combos...I guess to balance out how easy it was to get to it with translocator spam.
The person talking is QUITE LOUD. QUITE LOUD.It turns out, he's so annoying, I can't even finish the video. -__-The person talking is QUITE SEXY quite sexy.:D But in all seriousness,That 'loudness' is his shtick. He's a goofball. Don't like it? Stop the video, and go do something else.There's no point in posting a message about how you 'couldn't finish the video'... because if you didn't, you have no useful comments to add. Perhaps there's a dry, boring, long-winded video blogger on youtube you'll take a fancy to.
What a horrible game, now that we can look back onto it.
What a horrible game, now that we can look back onto it.Well you can thank that horrible game for how well polished WoW turned out on its release. People do not give respect to Everquest simply because its old and wow is out now, but a huge majority of people do not realize that WoW devs were hardcore EQ raiders and loved the game, I can also say that most people who put EQ down are just teenagers who were just little kids when EQ was in its prime and hate just to hate. I played EQ from '99-'05 and was in the 2nd best raiding guild on my server, the games social aspect trumps WoWs by miles. The no instances made racing for a raid boss so much more intense with 2-3 other guilds racing for it to. Dying means you lost exp, dungeon crawls were dungeon crawls, loot was not handed out like candy, and no everything wasnt handed to you on a silver plater like in WoW. Only like 3 classes could solo for exp, and even then it wasnt as good as grouping up. Mobs did not stop chasing you until you went to the next zone. But sadly the game is nothing like what it was and its simply just hanging in there. I will always consider EQ the best MMO made, many will argue but unless you were there in the beginning of the game and experienced it yourself, you dont know what youre talking about and youre just looking like a fool. The quests were few but when you found a good one it was more than likely leading into a epic ending, and how do you find quests? No little ! above the head, you could Hail the NPC and sometimes they have quests. Some NPC you had to give them random items or money. To this day a few EQ devs said there were still a good handful of quests that were never completed way back from '99, WoW devs cant say that because everyone datamines (which I can not stand at all) everything taking all the fun out of discovering things.Asherons Call was another amazing game but I did not spend a lot of time on it because of EQ, other honorable mentions of MMOs that people forget about are; Anarchy Online, Planetside, and Star Wars: Galaxy.
Star Wars: Galaxy.Nitpicking inc!It's Galaxies, not Galaxy ;-)
Aaaah, EverQuest. My love. <3Back when being max-level meant something because the rest kept dying and deleveling. ;)
Bring on more Classics Mike :) Loved it!
Do a video of a MUD. Can't get more classic than that. :PI would and would not suggest EVE. I would because I play it on and off just to check out new features and advance my character a little bit, but I wouldn't because I fear a video that explains everything going on in the game would be about an hour long.Maybe after the next expansion - the 15th expansion (I think), that is - where they're finally adding human characters that can walk around instead of forcing the player to stare at ships and menus all day (and you WILL play all day, cuz some stuff takes so freakin long to do). Maybe then, but I don't know.
Please do one about FFXI! "Old school" FFXI if you can, because while it's been around for nearly nine years, it's changed a lot over the past two, and only a very small percentage of their player base stayed with the game long enough to see those changes. (Not to imply that people left because the game was bad. It's just that after six or seven years, even the most fun games can start to feel stale.) So if you could somehow go back to explore the time before they nerfed mission, world boss, and leveling difficulties, before they started raising the level cap to 99 to keep their remaining addicts subscribed, and before they started coming out with mini download-able expansions, that would be awesome, because that would be the game that the vast majority of their player base is familiar with. Whatever games you might choose though, I'll be looking forward to more episodes like this!
Anyone else want to see him try Dwarf Fortress? It's not old, but it's very reminiscent of older games with its ASCII graphics.
