Yeah I remember having lan deathmatch with a mate on Doom and just owning him at it. Loved that game, I got so good at it I'd put it on the toughest settings and start each level with just the pistol even going one-on-one with the Cyberdemon!I play classic Doom online sometimes, most people wont play it because it has graphics from the 90's. Still I'd rather play that than Call of Duty vs zombies or some shit.
Tapes and one button joysticks haha ahh memories. We also dealt with games on floppy disks too oh and the beloved cartridges before all this CD stuff came into play.
They also didn't have the problem with the cassette player eating the cassette or having to look through 100 pages on a booklet to find the code to let you play the game haha.
At least it was easy to get games for free then! Bit of tape over the copy protected bit and you could make a copy!
Anyone else old enough to remember playing games on DOS? Having to type all kinds into the commands, only to find you missed a letter out and had to type it all again!
Yeah you could go out and have a game of football with your mates, get back and see if it had loaded in that time!I remember the original football manager, think i had it on the commodore 64.........on tape. Took ages to load, think the tape went right round to like 999 before it loaded lol
Hahah, brings back memories. The bit about the games crashing was funny. I remember a game called Daley Thompson's Decathlon that was around in about 85 for the Speccy. I wanted ito so much because I loved the arcade game Track and Field. It was an absolute bastard to load it. Literally 9/10 it would fail to load.This is some of the stuff we old c*** had to put up with in games back in the day!
