Ok. I think I will have the oldest title here. I just started Fallout New Vegas and its pretty darn good. Story and game pacing are just right. Very fun to play. My sons have been telling me for years to give it a try and with the lock down going on now, I actually have time.

Its important to keep your mind active. I've got lots if projects to do and gaming is a part of that. I'm way way behind in my games. I'm finally getting into Fallout New Vegas. Its a bit aged but really a fun experience. In this time of world crisis, be safe, think before doing anything concerning outside contact, support those around you and enjoy the time to spend with those we live with. We've been wearing out board games. Then I have the third chapter of Starcraft to complete.
There is always self improvement during this time. Get in shape, start that diet, look into healthy living and most of all keep your mind active. I'll be studying for my ccnp and rhse for future testing when the facilities reopen.
Oh man, back in the mid 90's. I remember playing the original Command and Conquer, then Starcraft, and Diablo. I even built a new pc to play Half-Life with windows 98SE. It was fun going to CompUSA to buy games and all kinds of stuff. I still have the Half-life launch party T-shirt that CompUSA gave out. Fun times.....
Did anybody ever play the text based star trek main frame game from the late 70's? It was fun as well as some adventure game I don't remember the name of.
Interesting posts, I'm actually running Kubuntu Linux now. I've been running Linux for my desktop since about 2000. I only recently have had to install windows 10 for gaming since games started using directx 12. I didn't bother carving a separate partition as its just as easy to install it on its own drive and use a bios boot selector. For my system (gigabyte) its f12, arrow down to the windows disk and boot into 10. I started out my career as a windows/cisco admin and have ended up in Unix and Linux at work. Gaming in Linux fluctuates quite a bit. I play many games in a program called play on linux which is a nice front end for wine and only boot to windows when I have to. Titles like Diablo 3, Starcraft and some older titles run fine in Linux. No problems. Titles like Fallout 4 and 76 ( which I haven't purchased yet) need direct x 11 and 12 and will have to run in windows 10 for now. I would encourage everyone in the IT field to get a hard drive and load up some version of linux and start using it to learn the systems. If you want to make more money, know more than the next guy. Good *nix folks are hard to find.
But this is a gaming site so no big deal. We have to run what will support the games we want to play. I must say, once you get all the options disabled in windows 10, it runs pretty good. I only use it for gaming so I don't need all the resource hogging "features". Slimmed down, it runs pretty nice and has never had an issue with anything I've thrown at it. If anyone has any Linux questions feel free to ask.
