It is interesting to look at the progression of games. One of them I've always been amazed at was Return to Krondor, but that's been freely playable for a long time. I sped up the frame rate using dos box and was amazed at how good the game really was, but of course, they had to depend more on story back then and the author was a professional writer. I think they just took some characters from his books. I was never much of an action gamer. I like space shooters. Action games are a lot more dependent on graphics, I think, but I still like more strategy or something. I never even bought Doom when it came out. I just played the demo for a while. I did actually buy Unreal, the first one.
