Decided to create this thread while I was minding my own business, thinking games that were godlike back in days. They might be still extremely fun and amazing games but they are lacking that little of something that made extra effort back in days, many many years ago.
Personally my top moments are about FPS games, since I used to play those a lot back in times, when it felt FPS games actually tried to innovate.
2009-2012 Team Fortress 2. pretty much the best online FPS that has been ever created in my opinion. I played only on one specific server because of marvelous players on the server. Majority of players used VoIP in order to communicate, crazy matches were battled and there were tons of unforgettable moments when whole team sung alongside one player who started the stong. Those players unfortunately have lessened or stopped playing TF2 nowadays. Even though TF2 is still just unique, fun and creative as hell, its golden age is over.
Battlefield 2. The best Battlefield in the series hands down. Innovative, revolutionary and tons of fun to play. Got my friends’ squad rolling back in 2006-2010. Tons of fun and no other large scale FPS has come close. Battlefield 3 was the biggest disappointment in my life, in terms of gaming.
Borderlands 2. In 2012 when it was released, right after work me and my friend got next day off. We rushed to buy our copies of Borderlands 2 and played it for hours. Overall playtime is already at 600 hours but those first hours were the best, even though game itself is always excellent.
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. The game that back in 2003 introduced me to PC gaming. Still amazing shooter that have teamwork, the best objective based gamemode ever made, great class variety and overall so fun experience. Today filled with cheaters and terrible mods.
What are those games that you miss playing and that lost their so called Golden Age?
