Before there was any Internet, there were local PC Bulletin boards, many of which had games and gaming as subjects for discussion. I was gaming from the late 1970s, on an Apple ][ computer then. By the mid-1980s, I was assembling my own WinTel PCs. Back then, I taught computer subjects at the community college here.

CRPGs went downhill from the mid-2000s, and when the two monsters rose up at EA and at the other other one, I stopped buying new games. I hate Steam, and I hate Origin much worse than that.

Hey Kiwi,

that sounds quite bitter. Fortunately we are in much better times again with all the indie and AA productions again. Actually there is so much stuff coming out that it's hard to play all of it.

Man, I do miss the old bulletin boards. I miss them like every single time I fire up my computer. I used to be a member of five boards that I checked daily back then, nowadays I only look at three sites in total.

I'm not the biggest Steam fan, and I absolutely despise both Ubijunk and Origin. If a product requires either of those platforms to use, I simply will never buy nor play it. Ever. I try to get as many products as possible from good old games when I can. Most of the internet is pure junk, but there are a few bright spots.

Not hate, not anger, simply truth.

Welcome! And you'll fit right in! There's plenty of people here that dedicate their lives to hating on new games.

The last game from any major CRPG source I bought was the first Dragon Age, which predated EA's Origin apron-strings limitations. I am about to start Pillars of Eternity.

Hey Taramand! Welcome to the Watch! Not really an MMO community here though.
