World of Warcraft. Unless your campaign involves two characters playing Pong.
there’s a reason why it’s not on the list, and it’s not because they forgot to include it.
World of Warcraft the MMO maybe. But WOW on a personal server with playerbots and auctionbots that let you enjoy the game and indulge your introverted nature at the same time is one of the best RPGs ever.
I notice that Minecraft is absent from the list. Just sayin’.
This is a joke, right?
Pong is fantastic. When I was trying to learn a bit about writing video games I did a re-implementation of Pong. It’s amazing how dead simple it is yet still fun.
Pong wasn’t actually written in the modern sense of the of, but implementes as a part-digital, part-analog circuit.
Anything that can be done in hardware can be done in software, and visa-versa, it’s just that somethings make more sense in one medium rather than the other.
Tim Rogers is great. He gave angry birds 4 stars on actionbutton.net. Read his review of Shadows of the Damned. It’s hilarious. I think he worked on that game, but he might be lying.
I liked the review, and the site looks like it deserves a second look, but…is that actionbutton.net’s standard background image? Large parts of the image are the same colour as the text, making reading the reviews very difficult.
you can change the theme if you click the action button in the upper right
Nice self-image Mr. Rogers has…
It’s a fist! I swear it’s a fist!
yes, but is it better than cow clicker?
The only thing better than Cow Clicker is Desert Bus.
This appears to be primarily a long ad for their $1.99 iPhone/Android game which supposedly avoids most of these issues..
Try ’9 games Pong is better than and Farmville’.
“Forty years is a long time for something to exist without anyone else bothering to make anything better than it.”
