Did you see the HBO special "Atari: Game Over"...they're playing it this month again...it tells about the rise and fall of Atari and they actually located the burial site and recovered most of the stuff that was buried there...very interesting show.

Me too! No one else in my school had one. Some kids got the 64 when it came out though, so my coolness was short lived.

Some people don't think so. My science teacher thought I was going to get married, which I replied by reciting all of Rush's discography.

Probably regarded as the worst video games to have ever existed as well! Thank god, Nintendo was there to save industry from the certain disaster. If you want to read about it here's a good article: http://www.ign.com/articles/2011/09/21/ten-facts-about-the-great-video-game-crash-of-83 and http://www.ign.com/articles/2011/09/21/ten-facts-about-the-great-video-game-crash-of-83?page=2

I like the points because it gives you some kind of feedback that people like what you're posting. And it also can be fun to set yourself challenges and see your points increase.

But the points aren't worth much more than that.

I like the point system because I'm a competitive person and I like to challenge myself by getting as much as possible...for myself.

But your point is also true.

It's too bad they don't have any add-ons to the site that we could "spend" our points on...like an avatar or maybe even buy freaky new fonts and font colors or something like that.

That would be a cool idea, actually.

I use to hang out at Pogo.com a long time ago...at that site you earned points for playing the games and you could use those points to buy stupid shit to "pretty" up your profile page...but you had to pay to hang out there.

That site sounds familiar for some reason.

I hear ya...this was just for those that seem to focus a little too much on points...so much so that it gets them down and they forget to have fun.

I agree.I think that if you worry about points to much you start-losing you creativity

I wasn't trying to contradict what you were saying in your meme with what I wrote. I think it's a good message. Hopefully, if there are people on the site stressing out about points, they'll learn to relax and have fun a bit more. :)

Would you be interested in helping me out in a contest? Ive asked socrates too. I figure I could use the top 2 dogs for this lol. I'd like to do a give away contest for say(Best meme in comments) of the game meme? I have a signed Worf and other signed stuff from my old store. I'll work out the details and get back to you if you're interested?

Should be simple, either the 3 of us pick winners, or by upvotes but I have a feeling that could be abused
reply
1 up, 1 reply
Yeah, unfortunately upvotes can be manipulated and I know a lot of users that admit to using alts.
reply

Yeah I heard about a few with alt accounts :s. I think a 3 person pick would be better and unbiased in the end
