    Apparently I have to install Linux on my Chromebook to use Steam. Seems like a lot of trouble. Might be easier to find an old XBox in a pawn shop and play Morrowind that way.
    Will a live Linux USB with persistence work? Thatís fairly easy to do. You need the persistence to save programs and files as without it you have a clean OS every boot.

    I had a Wii. Fun console.

    If that's your most recent console, and cost is any concern, consider even a PS3. Games will be crazy cheap and you can try lots to find what you like.

    Honestly, Skyrim took my breath away in a way I hadn't felt in ages, because of the scope, size, and opportunity to wander. On PS3 it is great fun.

    Also, people go nuts about graphics, but my TV isn't 4K or anything, so the hyperdrive graphics are wasted on me.

    I'm not sure if that's possible with a Chromebook. It mostly goes online and runs apps.

    I literally don't know...

    I hated Pong. But I am an incredible live foosball player.

    So I've got that going for me. Which is nice.

    With that Atari system you're entitled to fantastic graphics such as these!

    I had a friend in high school with a Commodore 64. He was high damn cotton.

    I had a TRS-80, cassette-booted, 1,500 baud loading speed. 16 K of beautiful, beautiful memory. Enough fire power to destroy whole worlds.

    I strongly agree!!! And every now and then for fun, I will find a copy of that an load it on my PC. It's been a long while, might have to do that again!

    If you are interested in oldies like that, here's one link. You need to download a DOS emulator, which this site has. (DOSBox)

    Did anyone ever play Galactix? One of my absolute favorite games ever. Commander Keen was a good bit of fun too.

    I also have fond memories of playing Gorillas and Nibbles (old QBasic demo games) on our old Win3.1x computer. No other "snake" type game will ever compare.

    I wore out Magic Vs Bird once I upgraded to the ATARI 7200.

    Strongly agree about Nibbles. I was pretty young when my family got our first computer. The only thing on it I could do was play Nibbles.

    I was 5 when we got ours...I think it took all of about a week for me to become the official in home tech support.

    With Bloodborne on PSNow, I figured to take it for a spin.

    My Lord, am I this bad at video games? I've been playing for about two weeks off and on and cannot get to the first save point. About once every six foot eight starts, I can make it to the bridge werewolves, but I can't make any headway from there
    . it's completely maddening and making me second guess my decision to get the PS5 and try Demon Souls. I've tried tips online and walkthroughs. Friggin useless.

    Thatís a FromSoftware game. Itís just hard to be hard. All of their games, including the Soul games, are notoriously difficult. Even people who cut their teeth on videos games from the 80s and 90s find them hard. I tend to avoid them to save money from replacing controllers, TVs and coffee tables.

    'Factorio'
    Game is addicting!

    Those werewolves on the bridge are tough. Taking them on in the open at the same time is a recipe for failure, even for people who have played the game a lot (this is something to keep in mind for the game in general...enemies in groups are lethal, so you need to try to pull them away from each other to take them out one by one wherever possible).

    Traditional method: Your best bet to fight the bridge werewolves traditionally is to kite one back to the stairs and take it on there, then heal up and do the same for the second one. They are susceptible to fire, so you can use Molotovs on them and do a lot of damage.

    Cheese method: You can approach the bridge werewolves through a dark house on the other side of the street (might need to look up a video how to get there, but once you unlock a certain gate from Central Yarnham it is a pretty quick shortcut). Clear that house out, then go out on the bridge and turn right to get their attention. Then kite them back to the house's stairs and go back into the house. They cannot fit through the doorway, so you can stand back a little and slash at them as they lunge helplessly at you; cheap and easy. You can also do this from the normal bridge entrance point; you would basically have to go up on the bridge and run past the werewolves while they are sniffing around, then turn left down some stairs to get into the darkened doorway of the house. Just remember to clear out the enemies inside first.

    Skip method: If you go through the dark house mentioned above, you can just turn left and proceed to the first boss. The werewolves won't even see you.

    If one has never played any of the Assassin's Creed games and wants to play Valhalla, where would be the place to start? From the beginning? Are there specific games worth playing? Just start with Valhalla? Any advice?

    Same question with Uncharted series?

    Thanks all!

    P.S. RDR2 is a lot of fun.
