Wives and girlfriends that is, at least those that understand the hobby and your geekiness. I admit, I am a little stuck in my ways; when it comes to computer games. Give me a classic RPG, like Baldurs Gate over the wishy washy games your get these days; where whizzbang graphics blind players to the shallow or even non-existent story/plot.
There was a glimmer of hope when Dragon Age came out, tens of hours I poured into the game, running it three times with different characters. Sadly they let the players down with the follow up, where I barely scratch double figures in time spent completing it. So I recently came across Good Old Games, who were offering Torchlight for free (as well as other games when you sign up for an account); during their NoDRM Summer Sale. If that wasn’t enough, they have not one, but a bundle of 10 classic Dungeons & Dragons RPG games (Baldurs Gate, Neverwinter Nights, Temple of Elemental Evil, etc).
Suffice to say, either my wife loves me very much; or she just likes me to be quiet while she is working.
