Despite the obvious fact that the game is 10 years old (so that means the graphics and sounds, etc are even months older than that).... I think this sums it up... "games that appeal to people who are thoughtful, have imagination, and a sense of humor."  There are millions of people who just won't "get" Star Control.

I prefer NetHack. Thank you!

NetHack rocks, especially with the new bitmap front-ends.  It does the same thing that SC2's planet lander does: teaches people not to be too greedy.

Well, there is almost nothing for me to say in defense of my favourite game - Sc2. All the good things were already sent when I entered...but I'll build a new module in this topic too. First of all - the story. I am an old gamer, I've played on the PC for 20 years. I've seen a lot of games, I am personally a RPG-fan. But there is no game like Sc2. Of course, the graphics...how sadly that then with their limited capacity they didn't make a DVD quality game!!! What do you expect??Back then, the graphics and especially the sounds were No1!
I have never heard of other sounds coming out so nicely out of a PC speaker! And the story...well, my friend, a better story for me is only the story in Betrayal at Krondor. And of course, everyone here forgot about the jokes throughout the whole game! Go chat with the Thraddash after making them your friends(and before that too). Finish the game and read all of the stuff the aliens are saying.

Hey guys, watch the flaming/swearing. This is a clean forum and we like to keep it that way! - Thanks

Perky is intitled to is own thoughts. While many others don't agree, that still does not mean that you can hate him.

Also Perky, try not to stir the pot to much, you know what other people think on this subject.

This is so amazing. You prefer me as a 4 year old flamer but look at yourself: I KILL YOU UR-QUAN MASTER HATER!!!!1 I KILL YOUUUU!!!!1 Sc2IZBEZT!!!!!1

*sigh*


I'm sorry, what thread are you reading? When I read this thread, I see two kinds of replies.

1. People telling you why they like the game, and answering your criticisms
2. People wondering why you bother to review a game you've hardly played

Now granted, there is one comment about pitchforks, but that hardly qualifies as flaming. After you make your slightly unimpressive second comment about just not liking it, there are a few people who call into question you you bother debating it if your not going to reply to our points, but ratehr just flatly say "No". However, at no point in time does anyone criticise you any any other way than implying that you should perhaps have played more, and listened to the story. We all state that we're fine with you having your own opinion, it's stated in several places that if you don't like it, fine.

So where do you see any flames? Where is this hostility you seem to pick up? Where is the I kill you thingy you seem to have percieved?

Oh, and "sigh", way to be brave. Come in hidden behind a hidden name and insult the people who actually contribute to this forum. That really shows that you've understood what this forum is all about. Also, great comeback. The wittiness really stands out there mate.

Perhaps the reason he sees flames is because he's reading the forum like he read the dialog in the game?

"Wow, this is really long. It must be a flame."
*skips to next post*
"Holy crap, there's more long posts! These people must hate me!"
*replies with some nonsense unrelated to anything remotely resembling reality*

This might be the closest thing to a flame directed at Perky on this entire thread. I imagine he probably won't read it anyway. Let's perform a test. If Perky is reading my post, I dare him to quote this sentence in his next post. Go ahead, you silly person you. Do it!

The nitpicker in me wants to disallow that, since you didn't quote me. But it doesn't matter.

The only person I see crying here is you, Mr. Perky. You come into a forum that is obviously devoted to a certain topic, tell everyone it sucks (which is your opinion, and you're entitled to it), then flame everyone that expresses their own opinions back. They even give you suggestions on how you might get a better experience out of it. Of all the posts made in this thread, you choose to remember the one and only comment about lynching, which if you weren't aware, was meant in jest.

If you don't like the game, don't like the opinions of the community devoted to it, and aren't contributing anything useful, then why even bother being here? To quote a friend of mine, it's like walking into a gay bar, and shouting out "What a bunch of fags." You're just asking for problems.
