    What Games Are You Playing?

    Atari Retro Gold Activision Edition.

    Centipede. It's so good!

    Missile Command.

    Millipede.

    Chopper Command.

    Pitfall.

    Some other video-games, like the one with U.F.O.'s.

    It's packed solid with games!

    Archive.org also has a very large selection of Atari and other older console games as well as a bunch of "obsolete" software titles.

      I jump in and out of games pretty frequently.
      But atm:

      Elder scrolls online
      A sort of MMO version of Skyrim I guess. For an MMO it's very good actually. I like it as it supports solo play well with lots of quests and storylines to follow.
      All voiced too, which is nice.
      I still like to watch people running about doing t heir thing. I occasionally work with other players to do quests, but rarely.

      Torchlight 2
      An Action RPG. Not much story to this at all. But a fun dungeon romp. I play this with my daughter, who loves this game.
      Torchlight 3 is due out this year, which is gonna be awesome!

      Dawn of man.
      A city building game set starting from the Paleolithic period and runs through to the Iron age.
      It's a slow resource management/builder. But a lot of fun. Very relaxing to play.
      Cheap too, as it's an Indie game

      Freelancer.
      An old Space combat/Trader. There's lots of fan created content for this that updates it for wide screen, improves graphics, adds LOTS of content.
      I'll be setting up a 24/7 server for this in Australia. It's a lot of fun.

        Love the classic Atari games though! I haven't played them in many many years but I have fond memories of them.

        I was recently playing around with unix bash and got logged on to a mainframe which seems to think my account is that of some guy named "Falken." The system has a few games on it--chess, checkers, etc. There is a game called "Global Thermonuclear War" which sounds fun...😏

            Not playing, but for some reason fascinated with watching somebody I don't know play this particular mod for the ancient Neverwinter Nights game:

              Neverwinter Nights is a fun and challenging game that I haven't played in years. Every time I look through my old game titles that one always stands out as one I should reinstall and play again.

                Back in the aughts I probably played more NWN than any other PC game. Of course for me the real game was using the toolset. That's why this particular play through is like the best QA, but... 16 or 17 years late.

                  I played Neverwinter Knights when it first came out. That was great fun.

                  There was many cool things in it and it was fun disarming traps.

                  I loved the sound effect of people shouting in the streets of the city.

                    Finally chased down Vampire’s Castle. It’s an old text game, like Zork but way more basic. Been nipping the corners of my mind for decades

                      I played LOADS of Neverwinter Nights many years ago . I used play a lot on persistent worlds (sort of like a mini MMO type thing).
                      I used to DM and even hosted a persistent world years ago.
