Youths, I know you do so enjoy disrespecting your elders, lingering outside the bowls club drinking Four Loko and ‘ironically’ listening to Barry Manilow. You can now up your rebellion by playing some of the ancient RPGs that fogies swear are better than games you herberts enjoy, then use that experience as inspiration for cutting subtweets.
Fogies, weren’t things better back in the day? As the saying goes, you can’t spell “progress” without “regress” if you’ve lost your glasses and your memory’s going. Relax. From today, you can easily revisit The Golden Age of RPGs. GOG have dug up thirteen old Dungeons & Dragons RPGs in the Forgotten Realms setting, you see.
The virtuous virtual vendor of vintage video games today launched Forgotten Realms: The Archives, three bundles of ye olde RPGs.
Collection One gives Eye of the Beholder I, II and III for £6.49. Collection Two packs Pool of Radiance, Hillsfar, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Gateway to the Savage Frontier, Pools of Darkness, Secret of the Silver Blades, Treasures of the Savage Frontier, and D&D: Unlimited Adventures for £6.49. Behind Door Number Three is Dungeon Hack and Menzoberranzan for £3.89.
For folks into dungeons and/or dragons, I calculate that’s about a bajillion hours of mirth from revered studios like SSI and Westwood for £17.
Really getting into the D&D swing, for the weekend GOG are also heavily discounting other D&D games, including Baldur’s Gate and Planescape: Torment.
