My history with PC gaming is non-existent. I've touched a few, here and there, over the years, but by-and-large, I didn't have any relationships with them. I do remember hearing about different key games as some friends got their hands on them; Diablo, Masters of Orion and Baldur's Gate to name a few. I even tried them, but never developed that relationship with each game. I was strictly a console player over the years.
I started playing Avernum 4 by Spiderweb Software. Wow is it fun. Mind you, I don't have any of the burn-out factor to make me feel like the genre grew old and stale. I don't have any references, not really, or comparisons. I've talked about and added a number of older RPG games to my Steam Wishlist over the months, in anticipation of trying great RPG titles from the history of PC gaming, but have yet to get to any of them.
Really, I'm only, in part, guessing based on graphics and features that Avernum 4 is a throwback RPG. Not one to throw anywhere. I love it. But it must harken back to the glory-days of RPGs
Let's rewind. A4 is not ye-olden-time RPG. It was released on Windows in 2006, which depending on when you were born is either ancient times before men came out of caves or just feels like yesterday. What I mean, and from my understanding, is it followed in the footsteps of notable games from further back in the genre. A4 is also an indie game.

I made a big decision today. I just decided to QUIT gaming League of legends on my PC by Uninstalling the game from my hard drive
You know why? because I couldnt play the game anymore my PC kept on hanging each time I try to play. So in anger I decided to stop playing at home which I play at most of the time and spend half of my life on :/ been 3 years now and maybe this MOVE that I just done will stop it.
STOP MY ADDICTION TO THE GAME. I can spend 14 hrs straight on it. And the only reason I do this is because I am motivated to go A RANK HIGHER than what I have still lots of UPS and DOWNS in the game wherein you always rank up and DOWN. So I spend almost everyday playing this game and YES it IS ADDICTING as you can interact also with the people in the game and comeon this is the most played game in the world.
I may have not quit completely BUT ITS A STEP FORWARD! I can now hopefully focus on my MUSIC abilities cause I know I have potential in the MUSIC field aswell :)
