I don't think it's all that surprising. In my age band, 50s, there still seems to be some stigma attached to those who admit to playing computer games. It just kills conversations with my peers…

Though I have copies of F1, F2 and F3 I haven't got pass the two hour mark in any of them. I think it's the setting but I am in the 10% who will not be buying the next Fallout game.

I enjoyed the original IWD and even finished it a couple of times. I played it with various mods though it never had the support that BG2 had from the community. Would I buy the EE version? Depends…

I am no fan either of DRM or stealing/ piracy. However I have on occasion removed the DRM from my games to protect the disk media while speeding up the game. Now I tend to only buy DRM free games…

I have this card reader, size of a small calculator, which I am suppose to use for online banking. You have to activate the card for use with the reader - which I haven't done.

I missed that bit. It was the bit about the games still being wrapped in their cellophane.

I have a house but my more modest collection (300 games) is bursting out of the area that is dedicated to…

The collecting bug is a very human thing to do. Reading the article it appears that the guy didn't play the games but just collected them.

The last game I finished was yesterday - Mass Effect 2. I know that Bioware/ Origin is regarded as a dirty word in the world of "true" RPG but they tell a magnificent story which has pace and…

Thanks Dhruin.

I went back and found that I had forgotten that my Bitdefender doesn't like new applications. Works fine. Did a bit of the tutorial. Doesn't seem too bad for a quick play, assumes…

I downloaded the two files and installed them. That worked ok. Then I launched the game. I get a screen telling me a little about the background and then there is a menu which includes "New Game". …

The focus seems to be on MMO and JRPGs - which I don't play because I am a PC gamer. So the list didn't look good to me.

Though if we get two good RPGs in a year I am usually happy which I think…

It used to be physical but the space I have is being filled by books, DVDs and old games. So I try to go for download though I restrict it to GOG (which I can backup) or very cheap STEAM or…

Depends what is happening but my free time tends to be split between games (TBS or RPG), reading and my DVD (mainly TV series) collection. I can find myself going several days without playing…

Gave in to my urge to buy Ultima Underworld pack from GOG over the weekend. Started with UW1. The graphics are terrible (though in the mid 90s with 12" monitors they looked good) - perhaps I will…

I remember the 2 Krondor titles with fondness - worth buying.

We tend to forget that the games industry is relatively young. It started in the early 1980s on really small PCs and as the number of home PCs grew so did the market. As the market…

Thanks for the response. I think I will put Gothic 2 away until I buy Gothic 1. I planned to get Gothic 1 but not yet as I try to regulate how many games I buy over a 3 month period.
