    We haven't done a Video game(s) theme yet.

    Main problem is that none of the Mods are up on any recent games or have time to play any.

    Do you think there'd be wider appeal on the forum?
    I know we have threads for Mass Effect and other games but are the players still around?

    Why does it have to be recent?

    I think most people will be familiar with 90s games, Mario and Sonic at least, games like Legend of Zelda, or Metroid, while well known might be a little obscure to some. Or if you want to be less specific, Nintendo and Sega. Everyone knows at least a few Nintendo characters. Or a hundred or so Pokemon

    I didn't say it has to be recent - my point was that none of the Mods to my knowledge have any of the more recent games.

    I used to have loads of the Sega games and nearly went berserk trying to get through Metroid and Sonic.Got bored with Mario etc because of glitching.
    One of my fave games was Gauntlet on the Master System.Heck I even remember playing Frogger and Pong many years ago when they were new,and the Ikari Warriors and Harley Davidson games on the Atari ST.
    *Snaps off nostalgic babbling*

    Depending on what Az'ryel suggests,we could try for a general theme,or something more specific.Maybe both,but on different months?

    Gauntlet ruled. Unfortunately I never had the chance to play Castle of Illusion.

    It was just a general guestion really. I do not know if many people here play at least the newer games but there are some bigger popular game series that could be used eventually, such as Assassins Creed, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid and Dragon Age but also maybe Tomb Raider or Final Fantasy


    But as I said it was just a question If there is no base for that then there isn't

    Thanks for the thought you've put into this idea ,and ty to the others who gave feedback!
    I've moved the thread into Forum announcements and left a week's redirect in OT Chatter,to see if anyone wants to add their thoughts.

    Mass Effect and a couple of games were already on our suggestions list,but we've added Video Games in there as a retro theme with a view to seeing if it goes well.

    ( Won't be done in January: there'll be a thread for that v soon!)

    Oh well that just came to my mind because Mass Effect Andromeda is to be released in March, and that is a Sci-Fi game and there is a lot things about Sci-F other than SG around here too. As well as of course some topics of fantasy genre related things, which are also the topic of many games

    And OMGODDESS, the fun we could have with a Pokemon-themed weekend, or Mario.

    Personal favorite = the Halo franchise.

    Pokémon yes, I did not even think of that, I only ever watched the series as a kid, that may be a bit children-friendlier than others

    My personal fave series was the Metal Gear, next to that Dark Souls, Mass Effect, Tomb Raider and Dragon Age

    We've got most of the Pokémon games.My kids watched the early show and some of the movies,and I think we still have a couple of the old videos.

    No idea on those others ,though.My son has Metal Gear Solid and loads of PS games,but I haven't played any.

    Rheumaticky fingers and damaged hands aren't helpful operating controls for anything faster than Pokemon or a few browser games.

    Yes, but to fill all those ranka and titles it would have to be a game series, like Pokémon that is running long enough so you a choice of characters and such

    But I know how it is if your hands do not wor the way they are needed and time gets in the way, I played more when I was younger but there are still some games I just cannot not play them XD

    Today turns out to be the 21st Anniversary of the Pokemon game/vid/movie/show franchise.Unfortunately that means if I do the theme for today,it's too late for some of us to celebrate and too short notice to get avs etc done.

    Sorry guys.Flu and family stuff got in the way through this month.

    To make up for the lack of a proper Feb theme,we'll cover Pokémon this coming weekend 3rd-5th March.

    (Thread for that is coming asap!)
