Hello everyone, I am new here to VGG and "new" to forums in general. I thought this site would be good to give a shot because it has so much information about a wide assortment of video games and a lot of great people.

I hope to meet some new people here, make friends with other gamers who have similar interests as myself and also hopefully get pointed in the direction of other games I might enjoy playing.

If you have any comments on the games I play, have a multi-player clan/guild/etc that I could meet up with, or have any recommendations, please comment or add an item to this list!!!

I started "video gaming" on Christmas morning, 1983, when I got a copy of Ultima 3: Exodus. My life would never be the same again!

I had a C-64 and didn't really do anything on it with games until this came along, it was amazing, the graphics were awesome (for the time), the characters were animated, the fighting was a bit tactical, there were puzzles to solve, role playing to be done, monsters to fight. It was an amazing game and to this day the memories I had with this game have stuck with me.

As a side note, I can proudly say that I played and won every game of Ultima from Ultima 1 up through Ultima 9.

The is the only "old" game I will add to this list, the games following this are games I currently play, but I thought adding this game would really set the tone for my my gaming began.

I bought this game when it first came out and played for many years. I also took 'breaks' for many years. I remember when I first played the game, the day it came out and thought to myself "Wow, someone actually made a game that is just about perfect".

How do I feel about it now? I think it is still pretty good, and for a game that is going on 10 years old, it really still can hold it's ground against other games. I casually play, getting on once or twice a week for a dungeon run or something. It is no longer a main focus, mostly because I don't have the new and exciting feeling anymore when I play it - but it is like an old friend that I want to visit once in awhile.

This is currently my favorite game.

I bought it when it first came out and played until I won by defeating Diablo. Then I shelved it until a month or so back, now I play probably an hour a night. I have beat the game on each difficulty up to Torment 2 and am currently working my way though Tourment 3.

I am looking forward to the new expansion as well.

I enjoy this game quite a bit, but only the campaign version of the game. I don't really enjoy playing other people because I find that I can't react quick enough to stay on top of things. I guess I am just getting old... If this was turned based rather than real time, I could see myself having fun against other people.

I also have the Warhammer 40k version of this game (Dawn of War) which I like just as much, but seem to prefer Starcraft II.

I would love to find a game just like this in a Fantasy Setting. Does anyone have a recommendation?

This was a blast and I played until I maxed my character out so much playing wasn't fun anymore. I had completed just about every quest I could find and the game became boring.

I am very much looking forward to the Elder Scrolls online, I have participated in a few of the Beta gameplays and enjoy it, but haven't been able to play for more than a few hours, so I can't really determine yet if it is going to be as good as Skyrim or not.

I downloaded this last week and gave it a test run, it looks like it has a lot of potential. I went with the Human Torch. I haven't been able to give it a solid testing and see how it holds out for the long term, but I have high hopes.

My wife picked this up for me this past weekend, it was on sale at EB Games. I have played all of the Call of Duty games that have been released, I did a couple of hours of multiplayer on this and I really like it. It feels like I have only scratched the surface of the game and that is a good thing for the longevity of its game play.

Welcome! Excellent start to gaming back there in good old 1983. What were some of your C64 favorites?

Game recommendations!? Here's a classic! I believe it is available on steam for very cheap. Or GOG.com if you like DRM-free fun.

I realize this is reaching back a bit in terms of graphics and such, but it is a great game! All-time great, it requires very little computing resource b/c it so old, and it is turn-based so you can play at a very casual pace.

A lot of VGGers have played this, so if you want to try it out but have a question on how something works, I'm betting the community will have an answer.

‘Well, at any rate, the Dormouse said—’ the Hatter went on, looking anxiously round to see if he would deny it too: but the Dormouse denied nothing, being fast asleep. ‘After that,’ continued the Hatter, ‘I cut some more bread-and-butter—’"

"‘But what did the Dormouse say?’ one of the jury asked. ‘That I can’t remember,’ said the Hatter."

Plays it a bunch still, you can see his postings in the what did you play this week geeklists.

Edit: welcome!

If you find that you like older turn-based games, I have a list of recommendations (all-time classics/greats) for you (or anyone else who will listen.)
