Let's play.... DOS games!


#101

Did she already see… this?

“Dad, watch out for the evil door!”


#102

As I kid I thought I came up with “the floor is lava” because I played some “real life super mario”. These days I found out every kid has been doing this for generations!


#103

It’s also a common exercise for actors, btw.


#104

We used to play real-life Knightmare at school until my friend walked headfirst into an iron pole.


#105

My daughters began playing “the floor is lava” too and I’m sure I did not teach them. That’s odd.

But, yes, she already saw the “bear trap”. In fact, that’s the thing I said her after the spikes. “Now the bear trap! SDENG! SDENG! SDENG!” and she tried to time her jumps with my noises.


#106

I’m so proud of your teaching methods! :smile:


#107

And real life Prince of Persia is one hell of a fitness sport!

As far as I know, I am the culprit who introduced your daughter to PoP! :grinning:


#108

No, she already knew it :stuck_out_tongue: remember how you told her “I don’t think I have games here” and she recognized the DosBox icon and said “yes, you do have games on this computer”


#109

Isn’t it time we all did?


#110

I think I haven’t played PoP since something like '93.

PS I don’t like Sands of Time. It’s… okay.


#111

OK, so who wants to play the real version of Doom 2?
Currently you can get the original disks for cheap on eBay:

Edit: He is raising money for Christy Marx and Randy Littlejohn who lost their home in the fire.


#112

I do it, from time to time.


#113

Although I never played Doom 2
Or Doom 1, for that matter…


#114

We played a fair bit of Doom 95 multiplayer. I don’t recall much of it compared to Quake 2 & 3.


#115

Yes, sure!

This one looks way more entertaining


#116

The $3200 bid was cancelled, so now for cheap for real!


#117

Staying on the current topic (Doom):
You can pre-order boxed versions by John Romero of Megawad until 24th of December:

SIGIL Standard Edition Box PC Megawad for $39.99

SIGIL Beast Box PC Megawad for $166.00:

I jumped with joy at the news at first, but I guess the free dlc won´t work with my copy of The Ultimate Doom (I think it said somewhere it has to be the original 1993 one).


#119

I saw that too, not sure why that really is. We can still “find” the original somewhere…


#120

Without having seen the statement in question, it seems more plausible that someone wanted to distinguish it from the recent Bethesda Doom game? :stuck_out_tongue:
