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.

    • What constitutes slow play for me is when I'm on a hot course and not playing so well, and the group in front will never be invited to play speed golf in the Olympics.  My mind begins to wander to a beach, a cold gin & tonic and my shady side patio.
    • I had a new one today. A group of 4 guys is teeing off before our group (we had only 3 today), but one of their members is late to the course so they take it slow, chit-chatting on the box and what not. Finally, the missing guy struts in, not walking any faster, driving his remote controlled push cart, and they get going: 3 and 4 balls per player. From the blue tees. I didn't think that all (or even most) of them had he skills to play those tees. It's going to be a long day, I said to the rest of my group. We had no idea, how long! We can see already a big gap ahead of them, and there must have been a gap in the tee sheet. So after waiting what seemed like half an eternity to hit our approches, we proceed, hit our chips and putts as needed, and only 3 of the guys ahead have yet teed off, and at least one is hitting mulligans... They had played the first hole in well over 20 minutes. We finish and walk past them towards the white tees where we will be hitting next. They totally ignore us, won't invite us through and that's when one of my partners says out loud (to be heard by them): "I don't have six hours for this, so let's go past them to the third tee."  We never hit from those white tees and instead walked around the slowpokes, under the tunnel below the freeway, back up on the other side and played the third hole, a par 5. We finished the par 500+ yards hole (3 shots + chips + putts as needed for 3 people), walked off to the 4th tee and they were STILL not on the third tee. Well, this seemed like the right decision, we congratulate ourselves. And the rest of the round proceeds normally and at a great pace: we have about 3 holes open in front, and on #11 catch up with the previous group, a foursome. No big deal, we can chip and putt on the previous green for a while as the slow group is now about 3 holes behind. We keep going like that until the end and by the time we walk off #18, the snails are making it to the tee of #14. That's a whole 5 holes behind, mind you, and that's with us having plenty of time to practice our short game as we move along. We were done in just over 3 hours and 20 minutes, so these guys were on pace for 5 to 5 1/2 hours with nobody in front of them, not playing in a tournament. This is an easy course, flat, open and I walked it once with nobody in front in under 2 hours. I just couldn't believe it. That slower than the definition of slow. Horrible.  
    • Day 59, July 23, 2021; Well maybe we’ll notice purple. Played 18 today, shot 75. I hit the ball very well. I could not buy a putt. Not a single putt outside 5 feet. Guess my read is off, need to practice that, probably where I was off.
    • A friend of ours, son, just came out of an induced coma. 9 weeks. He contracted Covid before he had a chance to get vaccinated. Bad timing for him. 49 years old , A third degree practicing black belt (Kyokashin 1)and one of the fittest men I know. He is sitting up and breathing on his own. Long term effects to him. Unknown. Long term effects of the covid vaccine. Unknown. I took my chances on a double Pfizer. I was trying to cut down on the possibility of a covid coma.  
    • I sip an Italian Sports Drink out of a metal container while playing.  No sips if I make a bogey.  One sip if I make a par.  2 sips for a birdie.  Had an eagle yesterday... 3 sips.  Heaven forbid I have a hole in one!
