Ah... don't think I played Blast Corps.  Total Annihilation was the one you always heard about as being better than Command and Conquer but nobody played it.  I recall the story was that some competitor bought them out and shut it down, but wikipedia doesn't bear that out.


This thread inspired me to go back and play that 3DS Zelda game.  After an hour, I managed to find a compass in the dungeon I'm still stuck in. 

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Total Annihilation was superb, but hard to swallow now - early software 3d rendering did not age well.  The best successor is Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance.  Amazing sense of scale, and the ability to give orders once like "this factory should make 2 fighters and then 1 bomber, repeating, forever, which fly this patrol pattern and refuel whenever they need to" without any more endless clicks of micromanagement.  It's a revelation.

(SupCom2 is a POS though, skip it.)

Iíve been thinking about this thread a lot.  This virus has me stuck at home.  What game, even in these circumstances, am I never going to finish?  Skyrim on PSVR.  The graphics are rough but itís probably the most immersive experience Iíve ever had in a video game.  And it kills 3 hours of my life every time I boot it up.  And I accomplish nothing.

Kinda sounds like an accolade...?
Sorta?
The Elder Scrolls series looked fun to me but (in some ways sadly) I have had too many other things going on for most of the last 25 years even for much gaming.
Would love to start on them though-
Why'd you kick me?
Where's your brain?

Here are a list of games I've had on the pile that I've wanted to finish.

older:
Chrono Cross
Shenmue
Heretic
Panzer Dragoon Saga

newer:
Hollow Knight
Shadowrun Returns
Witcher III
The Outer Worlds

Few more games I'm adding to my bucket list:

Snatcher
Policenauts


I've played these, but never finished them. Now that they're fully translated on multiple systems (Saturn, PSX, PCE) I should probably play them through again.

Doom Eternal

I really like the rebirth of Doom, and Eternal looks a lot more fun than the previous modern release. They even did platforming well for an FPS. Been watching some streams of this lately, and they convinced me to get it.

Iím just cheating my way through old games to say I did it.  The mindless hour has been a nice reprieve.

This one already came invincibility patched in CoinOps... so hereís one thatís been on my list for 30 years done.
