If you spend your time finding two-or-three-year-old questions to close, perhaps it's a sign that you need a real hobby. (One would think, if you post here, that gaming would be enough of a hobby.)

I mostly play old stuff. The last few weeks, I've been obsessed with Roller Coaster Tycoon. How did I miss this game back in the day!? I bought it and RCT2 from Good Old Games. I haven't even run RCT2 yet, because I'm having too much fun with the original.

I used to be a big Blizzard fan, but they jumped the shark with the StarCraft II EULA. Diablo III will not be getting my money:

  • A company doesn't have a right to tell me I can't play their game offline without logging into their server first.
  • A company doesn't have a right to require that each member of a household buy the game over again in order to play the "full" game.

Back in the days of spawning, with WarCraft II, Diablo, and StarCraft, Blizzard was a great company. Greed has ruined them.

comment What is “ganking”?
Listening to some Easy-E would give you a pretty good understanding of this term.

comment Is there a term for maps you have to explore to reveal?
"Fog of War" refers to the fact that you can't see what's going on in a part of the map unless you currently have vision of that part (through a minion, a scan, or something else). This question is asking about the fact that the map is all black until you've explored it once. Then you have knowledge of the last state of that section's landscape, but perhaps not necessarily (due to Fog of War) knowledge of its current situation. An example of games that have this, but not Fog of War, are Heroes of Might & Magic II and III.

@Shiplu, well, that certainly explains why I had so much trouble finding it. I'll improve the links on this answer.

comment Why aren't my pets getting paid?
Makes sense. Most of the apartments I've lived in haven't allowed pets, working or otherwise.

comment Are there any differences between the genders?
"Sex", not "gender", is the correct term in English, despite modern American culture's bizarre squeamishness(?) about the term.

comment Do my sims have to work every single day?
Paintings sell for 166 simoleans each at maximum creativity level. And no, growing vegetables isn't possible in the original game. It became possible in The Sims: Unleashed.

Wow. Based on this answer, Sims 3 looks way too complicated.

comment What are some pros and cons for the different Zerg and Protoss research options?
Ground-only? I'm pretty sure the shrike turret fires at air units as well. (On various web pages I find both claims.)
