As one of the oldest members of Dtoid, (I'm already over the big 4-0) I've been gaming since the Atari 2600 was a brand new item, and thousands of my teenage hours were dedicated to gaming on the Commodore 64 and messing around with the new 300-baud modems. (That's .00003 of a megabit per second, for those of you who only know broadband.)
I'm proud to say that I'm a member of the first-generation of gamers, and I still use my PC and each of the three current-gen consoles regularly -- and not for "casual" games. Bring on the hard-core FPS and 3PS! I want to shoot something!
So, I give a big PHUCK YOU!!! to anyone who thinks that video games are for kids! As far as I'm concerned, they haven't been for kids for over 20 years.
Seeing as how the Dtoid staff don't consider this to be worthy enough to let everyone else know, I'll just do it here.
I got an e-mail today that GOG, our favorite inexpensive, DRM-free game company, is offering 15% off of five racing titles:
* Colin McRae Rally 2005
* TOCA Race Driver 3
Some of them are $5.99, some are $9.99. Use the code "RACING15" to get the discount.
Even if you're not a huge fan of these games, they offer both Freespace and Freespace II, which I know are some prizes games for many of us, as well as the first two Fallout games. Because they're DRM-free ... well, I don't need to explain the benefits of that.
So, even if you don't like racing games hopefully they'll have something that you're interested in and you'll be willing to show your support. They don't have a lot, but I appreciate what they're doing so I bought a few games today. Hopefully, they'll be able to get more in the near future.
