:falkwreath: I am a game collector & old-school gamer since the early 80s. Besides playing and collecting I enjoy talking about games just as much. Friend me if you're like minded, I don't care about your steam level or the number of games you own. :falkwreath:

:happyelf: My first love were text adventures (Infocom, Magnetic Scrolls...), but nowadays my favorite genres are point and click adventures, role-playing games, turn-based or real-time strategy games, although I play games from other genres as well. :happyelf:


I really dislike (exceptions may apply) early access, mobile ports, F2P, MMOs, unfinished survival games, empty multiplayer games, achievement spam games...

Finished games:
2015: Moonmist, Ballyhoo, Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons, Gone Home, The Walking Dead S2, Belladonna, Trine 2 + DLC, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Rayman Legends, Enchanter, Trinity, Cross of the Dutchman, Company of Heroes.

"The rantings of a dead gamer"
"Every second spent with an awful game is a second lost!"

While trying to follow this wise piece of advice I have collected quite a few undesirable games in my collection. While some indie games are doubtless very good, I prefer titles with high production values.

"Some people own too many games"

It is impossible to play more than a few thousand games over a lifetime. Where is the point to collect 10.000+ games when you are already in your 40s? You can never ever really play through them all, at least if you do have a life (like job, kids, sports or other hobbies) besides gaming. To check the time required to play just your steam collection, go to steamleft.com/ .

"All online games will die one day"

Each game that requires online servers to be playable will be unplayable one day. Each game that needs external servers for parts of its functionality will loose this functionality one day. External servers will be turned off. It is not a question IF, but only WHEN.

When Gamespy closed its doors, hundreds of games lost their multiplayer functionality. EA turns off multiplayer servers of its games sometimes 2 years after release . When activation servers are turned off, games become unstartable. Single Player games that require a permanent internet connection are the best of the bunch...

Some of my now worthless boxed games: Age of Empires Online, BattleForge, Darkspore, Battlefield 2142, Hellgate: London and a lot MMOs...

"DRM is bad!"

Buying games that require Uplay on Steam is the apex of stupidity. Problems with only one service may lead to problems with the game. I especially hate Uplay to implement the Uplay requirement to games that did not require it when purchased!!!

I already hated those copy protected floppies from the 80s, I hated copy protected CDs and DVDs from the last decade (with systems like Starforce, TAGES, SafeDisc and SecuROM... ), and I hate todays account-bound rental games, where the paying customer is de-facto completely depending on the publisher (who can retire or change a game at any time) and the DRM-client provider (like Valve).

Games Republic, Gamesrocket, Gametap, Get Games, Desura, Indie Royale, Gamesload.de, Bundle in a Box, Shiny Loot, Gamefly, Direct2Drive (the old one) and Impulse are just a few closed clients/resellers, often taking their downloads with them.

"Don´t preorder."

You buy a product that is not yet finished. It can be good or it can be a complete dud. Only reason to preorder might be a very good preorder bonus. An useless DLC does not count as good preorder bonus.

"Don´t buy games at release."

A year later you get the GOTY edition with all DLCs, patched and for -75%. And you have a year full of eager anticipation before you find out that the stupid game does not live up to your expectations anyway. Only reason to buy a game at release might be if you want to join multiplayer, which has generally the highest population close after release.

"Older games can be fun, too."

The quality of a game does not always correlate with its release date. While widescreen or 4k screen support, XBox Controller, cloud saves and high-end graphics are good, games without any of those can be fun as well.

"Not every steam friend is a real friend."

You only find out when you need him.

"Games exist to be played, not to help you collect useless digital stuff like trading cards, badges and achievements."

It certainly is fun to receive an achievement (or 100% of them) in a game you enjoy, but for me this will never be the REASON I play a game. I have not found a use for badges so far. Or Steam levels.

"Perfect Games"

Replaying a game I initially finished without cheating using a 100% achievement guide is kind of strange for me. I mostly play games for the fun of playing...

"If you harvest trading cards for financial gain, you should really think about a more lucrative way of earning money."

"Playing" a game to earn around 40 cents is not a gain of 40 cents but a waste of maybe half an hour of time for installing, "playing" the game and finally selling the cards. I would earn more money in 30 minutes by simply drinking my next beer at the floor of the railway station and putting an empty cup in front of me.

hi Sven, ich hoffe, ich mach jetzt keinen Fehler und Du sprichst deutsch. Deine Fotos hauen mich einfach um. Ich fühlte mich, beim ansehen Deiner Gallerie, an meine Jugend erinnert! Awesome! Wer bitte schön kennt denn heute noch Infocom. :yazdsmile: Ach, dadurch, dass ich Dein Profil auf AEG entdeckt habe, habe ich heute richtig gute Laune. Sven, ich wünsch Dir mindestens einen genauso guten Tag, wie Du mir verpasst hast! :steamhappy:
