Take these broken wings

Postby Edddelos » Sun Nov 12, 2017 4:58 pm

Whenever I hear the song "Broken Wings" by Mr. Mister, I feel like playing GTA vice city. I know the game is old as moses, and I know most of you readers where in diapers when it came out, but I like my retro games. 8-)

Already drinking and driving (legally) well before that came out.
And funny you should call it a retro, when vice city itself was making a lot of retro gamer jokes.

And more than half the members on this board used to play original Elite in the mid 80's.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Most of the people who play Elite are in their 30's I think. This board has a very high average age, I believe as Tor said. I'd probably estimate around 45-55 years old.
I was 20 when it came out but its not really my style.

I remember playing the original GTA which was the most fun of the bunch to me :)

As for Elite, i learned about the franchise way after Elite Dangerous was out. This one went way under the radar in my books, crazy...

I remember Starion, the vectors were better than Elites, but.... it just didn't have a good enough radar.
