    We've progressed a bit further in Div II and we are suspecting that the end is just going to pit our characters against each other. BF and I are playing together, he's a rogue and I'm a caster (I went aerotheurge and necromancer, but have some hydrosophist and polymorph throw in also). No spoilers, please! I dislike that, as I much prefer PvE games, but it's still been a really good game up til now. We just rescued Seheila from Roost. That whole battle was hard, but the one with the outside guards and Mummy Dearest was the most difficult fight we've come across (that we didn't run from, lol).

    I like Cod Modern Warfare so much I bought it twice.

    Ps4/PC..

    What I love about it is that you play against ps4,xbox and pc gamers.

    Gamers are one big happy family.

    Lately Iíve been playing a lot of retro games. Mostly Genesis, Super NES, and MAME. Nice breath of fresh air from the current games that are so involved.

    My boyfriend likes to do this. He focuses mainly on PlayStation and computer games. For example, a couple years ago he went through the whole Final Fantasy series, starting with the original Final Fantasy. He ended up getting a PS Vita for FF3, 4, & 5.

    He's now playing through the Dragon Age series. He really enjoys the progression of the video games in a series, especially story lines and improvements to the organization of the games in general.

    He thinks that the older games are a lot more challenging than the new games. I can attest for this myself, having recently started playing Diablo III after 20 years of video-game-free living. The "normal" game setting on III was a joke as compared to I and II. I practically sleepwalked through it on my first go-around. Now I have the level set to "Hard," but it's still really easy.

    Back around the time that I played Diablo I and II, I actually found (and purchased) an Atari joystick online that came preprogrammed with all of the old classics. It's tough to use, though. Not as flexible as the original joysticks. I still have it somewhere...

    I looked into a new NES Classic system a couple years ago. I think it would be fun to play Zelda and Super Mario Brothers again. I still (weirdly) get a little thrill of excitement when I look at those old crappy graphics. I know that if I say the word to my boyfriend, he will make on magically appear. So, I've been trying to hold off lol.

    Wow thatís dedication in how you described him going through FF and Dragon Age! I tried playing one of the FF ones but could not get into it. From what youíre telling me Diablo sounds like a cakewalk. Especially after having not played any games for 20 years.

    Iíve been playing a lot of side scrolling beat em ups like Final Fight, Streets of Rage, and Punisher. Along with puzzle games like Columns, Puzzle Bobble, and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo.

    The original controllers will always be the best and have that special feel you remember. What were you playing before you took the 20 year sabbatical from gaming?

    Actually, I just talked to him about it and it seems that he stopped after FF5 because there was a remake of FF6 and his momentum petered out when he reached the FF6 crossroads: play the original or play the remake. That was the question, and he hasn't made a decision in three years lol.

    He explained that FF7 was the first one in 3D. At some point later on, they remade FF6 in 3D. So, I think what he will eventually do is play FF6 top-down, then FF7, then FF6 3D, then continue through the rest of the series.

    He undertook the whole Final Fantasy effort because FF15 had recently come out. He had only ever played FF7 and wanted to experience the whole 'journey.' That's very typical of his approach to gaming. And to comics, and puzzles, etc.

    I seem to have piqued his interest about Final Fantasy again with my questions, so maybe he will resume his quest in the near future.

    Yeah, he does have dedication. It helps that he loves the progression of game formats, interfaces, and 'delivery' technology as well as the story telling aspects. He believes that (at least some) video games are as (or even more) enriching than any other type of art.

    Other games that he really enjoys are the Assasin's Creed series, The Last of Us, Fall Out, Elder Scrolls (he will be working his way back trough them, imminently).

    He's pretty clever because he finances this hobby through intermittent auctioning and resale of video games, as well as Game Stop and Best Buy credits. So, it's almost self-sustaining, although he does put forth some money here and there. For example, when The Last of Us 2 comes out, he will probably pay full price for it.

    So far, it's not very difficult. We beat it pretty fast on "Normal" mode, so this time around (with new characters) we're on "Hard" mode. That was a little more challenging in the beginning, but it's gotten more easy.

    There are quite a lot of difficulty settings, though. We've just scratched the surface, so it's possible we'll meet our match when we get up to like Torment Level or whatever.

    I just seem to remember Diablo I and II to be a lot less forgiving from the get-go. I remember having to think a little more about my inventory and wealth management, etc.

    My boyfriend recommends Dead Cells if you like side-scrollers. It's not a beat-em up so much, but it's an excellent throwback game. He doesn't want to give too much away about the format, but there's a cool twist.

    I took the 'sabbatical' because I found myself playing Diablo from almost the moment I got home from work to the time that I went to sleep at night. In my early 20s, that was pretty late--hours upon hours per night. Alarm bells went off in my head and I quit cold turkey!

    It took years for my boyfriend to get me to play again. He actually tried to entice me a few years ago by re-buying me Diablo I and II for Christmas. We did play Diablo II for a little while, but then I had to start studying for my licensing exams so I begged off.

    I'm really only playing Diablo III right now because we've both been laid off as a result of COVID. But I'm glad I started. The mindlessly gratifying button-mashing has helped me to relax a lot.

    In college, I played only sporadically. I didn't have my own gaming system. I played games on other people's consoles here and there. Some Sonic, whatever Mario Brothers, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat....

    Was it Mortal Kombat that had that little "toasty" guy pop up intermittently?

    Do you know that if you hit the right buttons when that happened, it said, "Get ready for a blast from the past" and that blast from the past was Pong??? I thought that was so funny.

    I played video games a lot more when I was 10 - 14. We didn't really get a lot of games in my house. We owned the basics, like Duck Hunt, Mario Bros, Zelda. I conquered Zelda like a million times.

    Before that, we had Atari. I think we only had Pac Man. And then we got Snoopy and the Red Baron.... I had to go to my cousins' house to enjoy other games.

    Sounds like you've both played some great ones over the years! I checked out Dead Cells which I would be playing on PS4. Looks pretty good, however, I can't be dropping that kind of money on games right now. Especially with the fact that I have LOTS of other ones I haven't finished yet. I even have a few still in the plastic wrapping. LOL!
