What made you decide to visit the forums?

Anything else unrelated to gaming can go here.

What made you decide to visit the forums?

Post by wardrich »

I thought this would be kinda neat to see what drove people to this forum.


I first came here when i downloaded the game "Last Half of Darkness" and i couldnt get it to work. I figured "what the hell, i might as well look here [in the forum] to see what was there" Well, im glad i did. Although i was a bit of a nooB when i signed up (posted in da worng forum) but oh well, im still glad i signed up. This is the best forum i have ever visited and signed up for! All the members are sooo nice (since the banning of ZZ8) and helpful. And the best part of it is the organization of it! I love it!!

I wanted the full version of "Alone in the Dark". I wasn't much of a n00b, though. As a side note, I never got a response to my search until a week before the Ikonboard got shut down.

Um, I posted on iB because DB sent me an email telling me too :D . And I posted on the ghetto board because I had nothing else to do. Yeah, I'm a boring child.....

I think it was the voices in my head.

Actually I got a c64 from ebay because I was feeling retro..
that caused me to look into an amiga..
which made me look up 2 great Amiga bulletin boards in england..
that had a few people talking about the good old lucas arts DOS games..
that caused me to dig out my old dos games collections...
and that finally got me interested into finding a dos games forum...
add a search brower and here I am.

I came on the forums to ask about roguelike game called LAD and a snakelike game called appendix back while the site was using UBB and, Despite multiple attempts to get rid of me, I have been using the various forums since then.

I first came here looking for the full version of Dare to Dream. Once I came I realized all of the great games I used to play were dos. And I also wanted to help people find they're games since I am kinda an expert finder.

i am too moo, where do you find most of the games?

I came in looking for a game, I didnt knoe what it was called. They got me the name within a week. I viewed the posts (it was on da ghetto board) but never did post anything else. I forgot about it for some reason, and remembered within the last week of Ikonboard. I posted there and a few days later, this was up.

Now I go on as much as possible, and am 1 of teh top 5 posters.

P.S. The game turned out to be Highway Hunter.

I came here looking for Tnakwarz. Dogbreath was so prompt and polite that I stuck around. Sometimes I even know where to find a game someone is looking for. :cuccoan:

Someone from another forum (now no longer existing) recommanded this places as a good place for identifying games. Although I never got the game identified from here, I stayed on to see if there were others who needed help as well as see if there's anything interesting to post. Anyway, in the end, I identified my own game through trial & error. :P
