Games and their Golden Ages INTRO: There are lots of bestselling games that have sold millions of copies, but there are some games which manage to create something special, something that, after it's gone, people are going to miss and get nostalgic about. It's too often that I realize a game had something really special going on only after it's gone. I was too late for Diablo 2 and the HC crowd's heyday, Starcraft's rise as the supreme competitive RTS and classic WoW with it's 40 man raids. The problem is that in many cases people are all focused on what once was and miss out on the awesome things happening right now. THE IDEA: Let's post about games, communities, or periods within a game's lifespan, that were really something great in their day, and post about the ones happening right now! THE RULES: ** No bashing other people's games or their developers. ** No whining or complaining about how your game was ruined. This is an appreciation thread, not a blame and shame thread, so keep it positive. ** No arguing over which game is/was "better" or "took more skill". ** Again, keep it positive! Be as specific as you want, there are some weird and fun niche communities out there! I'd also like to hear what was the hotness back in the 90's since I'm more of a 2000's gamer.
