Never heard of this till you mentioned it. The bags under my eyes are your fault.

Just wait until you get bored of the base game and get into mods.

I can't play the base game anymore.

Good luck with that. Those things bit  rot.

What on Earth did Atari make in 1972? I remember the Atari 2600, I sold mine about 5 years ago on ebay for like 200 bucks. But I had the 1977 edition, which I was pretty sure was the very first editio

I had Pong as well as an Atari 2600. My son has about every gaming system known to humanity, but I still reminisce about Leisure Suit Larry.

I try and get a feel of vanilla, then add mods. Have 300+ on Skyrim.

I watched a Witcher 3 let's play and wound up getting the game for the Switch. Even with the graphics not up to snuff compared to a PC, it's still not bad and the story and characters were what drew me to the game in the first place. A bit more complicated than Breath of the Wild, in terms of equipment and magic and all that. So many quests.

Watched Skyrim and Last of Us let's plays as well, but didn't feel the need to want to play them.

Got lucky and only on second try with one browser window, got a PS5 via Playstation Direct. Guess I'm a gamer now, lol.

Any gamers here?

I've been a borderline gamer in the past but simply not enough time anymore.  I've backed off in the past few years and my last addiction was with Call of Duty-World at War several years back.  I loved the Zombies!  I have had multiple consoles over the years but stopped upgrading after my xBox 360.  I still have my PS1 and PS3.  My old Atari (circa 1972) disappeared while I was in college, I'm guessing my parents sold it at a garage sale.  I really wish I had that now.  Growing up when I did during the PC revolution I also played many PC games.  I particularly liked the games where you had to solve clues.  One of my favorites was Myst.  OK, I am pretty sure I've dated myself with this post.

I am glutton for punishment and currently in the middle of playing Dark Souls, known for its difficulty. It's... a lot, lol. On the Switch. May get to Demon's Souls on the PS. If there's anyone on here who can help me out with a boss eventually, that would be awesome.

Myst was awesome.

The storytelling in the best rated games now is really quite something. AAA and indie.

I am going to make an odd confession.  My wife and I have kept all of our older PCs and consoles so we can replay the games sometime in the future.  We have an old 386, I think late 80s or early 90s, with floppy disk drives and a CRT Monitor.  Hopefully the floppy disks have not deteriorated.  Some of the games can be found on updated media but not all of them.  We hope to enjoy them a 2nd time after we are no longer able to travel or play golf.

Nice! I’ve had a PS5 in my cart several times only to be hijacked by a bot. My boys have one but wanted one for myself as well. They’re 10 and 14 so....yeah...they certainly wouldn’t call me a ‘gamer’ despite my self proclaimed title.

Maybe a Pong Console? I had one of those from back in the early 70's but I didn't think it was Atari brand.

You guys are awesome. I threw away everything, although I am still a gamer. Recently my wife and I started playing Beat Saber VR on the PS4 Pro. We are in the process of remodeling one of our rooms to a PC/console gaming room.

I used to collect the Nintendo Game & Watch rare models and impulsively decided to sell every handheld and bought a new golf set with it.

These days I am trying a couple of PSVR games, although I mostly play on my PC (Steam).

I was wrong with the 1972.  It was "Pong" and I just checked wikipedia and 1972 was the Arcade version, the home version was later, so it could have been the 2600 like you mentioned.  I remember playing Pong until our eyes hurt.

    • Dude, calm the F down. He never said he wasn’t for the vaccine. Just because he doesn’t think it should be compelled by government force doesn’t mean he’s not for it. I was one the first people I know personally to get it (because healthcare professionals’ spouses could get a vaccine in my area; my wife is a FNP), but that doesn’t mean I think the government should make everyone get it—even though it likely can do so constitutionally under law (although government officials ha e already indicated that they will not mandate the vaccine). As for now, it’s still an individual’s choice. If they want to be stupid and not do so, that’s their prerogative, unless their employer demands it. 
    • Asymptomatic transfer is the danger. The very fact that this person decided not to bother getting tested because he felt OK just shows that he is an example of what the health authorities are ip against. He simply doesn't understand how it transfers. I am living in Australia, and we are currently in the middle of a soike that is fast getting out of control. We're worse than we were a year ago. All because our pathetic government was slack in ordering enough vaccines and the insanity of being anti-vaccine has spread worldwide. I get that screaming at people and judging and blaming and chest beating can be (I mean is) counterproductive when dealing with sceptics, but just the idea that someone who is eligible capable of receiving it thinks they have to "research" or even think about getting the vaccine astonishes me. 
    • 1) I am 100% for vaccine, so tone down the barking a bit here. I am trying to push as many people, POLITELY, to get the vaccine. Because, when has barking at the, or calling people idiots ever gotten them to do what you want them to do.  2) How much more does the vaccine help someone who has had COVID resist getting COVD? If he tests positive, should he get the vaccine if he has sufficient antibodies to resist it from getting COVID? Should we demonize him for it if he is sufficiently protected because he had it.  How many are those who previously had COVID? Just asking questions to get information not to combat you on getting the vaccine or not.  Don't take my questioning as denouncing getting the vaccine. I am not an expert, and any more information is good for me to pass along. I 100% agree with taking the vaccine if possible. Which is a very high % of people out there. 
    • Reading through these reviews one thing stands out.  You guys are lovers of the game, you guys are observant of the nuances of a golf course and you guys can write.  Kudos.  I think that defines your basic TST'er. I have friends that fulfill the first two items, but they can't and/or hate to write.  Too much like high school.  So they'll never come on here.  They are famous for texting only "Ok" to a longish, heartfelt text I might send their way.
    • "probably" should have? When is wife had it? "If" the vaccine "further helps him out"? The guy is clearly anti vaccine. A fool. Pardon me, but it sounds as if you are not 100% on board with the vaccine. You even said that he basically should decide whether he should get the vaccine only if he had tested positive! Why can't these people understand that you get the vaccine to save others, not just yourself. Symptoms or no symptoms. You get the vaccine. Unless you are a selfish dick who doesn't give a sh*t about anyone else. UNLESS your doctor specifically tells you NOT to take it, lest risking your own life. Am I missing something?  The vaccine has "helped" many, many millions of people out by making sure they don't die. And don't pass it on.
