Nostalgia Bomb Part 1: What Games Invoke the Best Memories For You?

Life goes, it's as simple as that, the slow march of time is one that none of us can avoid. Inevitably we all end up hanging on to that moment or two (or five or ten) that really left a sweet taste in our mouth. That moment when everything was just as it was meant to be and worry or doubt were laid to rest for a time.


As gamers, there inevitably are games that hit at the right time and place in our life where we can truly enjoy them to their fullest. What are yours?

Old School Runescape went ahead and commemorated one of, if not the most fateful day in Runescape history yesterday. It was the Falador Massacre, and in case you didn't know, here's how it went down:

Player Cursed You maxed out his Construction skill, invited a few dozen friends into his house, things got a little bit rowdy as they will when the band gets together, a sparring combat ring was assembled in the house, which flagged players for PvP. But here's where it gets interesting...

When Cursed You kicked people out of his house, they remained flagged for PvP, and a horde of revellers marauded through Falador, laying bloody waste to everyone in their path. 

The tortured cries of 'bank your items!' echo into eternity...

So, in honor of that fateful day the Old School Runescape team set up a tournament in World 666 that made Falador a battleground once more.

Appropriate, don't care, or distasteful? Have at it:

Gone are the days of Java-driven visuals in the Scape of old. The biggest update to the game in 15 years introduces the NXT engine, which seeks to improve overall in-game performance---load a larger map area, and pre-load maps in the background. What do you make of the update--fan, or are players better off sticking to the legacy Old School Runescape version?
