To be honest, I don’t really like this site; it is probably the least inviting and welcoming of the SE sites. It feels like only questions about the latest games are welcome, so I, like some people, almost feel afraid to ask anything here anymore for fear of being rebuffed, down-voted, and closed, which makes it not very helpful and of little use to anyone who doesn’t have/want/can’t afford the latest games.








I’ve never been able to afford keeping up with all the games, either with time or money, so I’m always quite a bit (ie a decade or so) behind. However I try to play through everything I can at least once (depending on how much I like the game).

I’m trying to get through the stable-games (the main, franchise, non-sports games) for each platform including PC, Atari, Sega, Nintendo, and PlayStation, excluding the latest (and in some cases, the last two) console releases.

I’m also attempting to collect all of the consoles and games, but not ridiculously expensive pristine, collector’s versions (I actually play the dang games!)

comment What is that ASCII Art From the Portal Credits
@hit-and-run-down-voter, what is your problem? You did not leave a message to explain why you hate the question so much as to down-vote it, despite the fact that many others thought it was a good question, so I can only assume you are either mentally unstable or a vindictive jerk or something.

Yes, thank you; that was established three years ago (a nice, definitive answer only 26 minutes after the question was posted).

comment Are there any other asterisks in Candy box 2?
You may have read about the “boots of luck” and got that stuck in the back of your mind. There’s a myth that somehow spread about another asterisk that leads to the aforementioned boots, but it is total hogwash.

comment What is the Booklet behind the case of BioShock 2?
For the record, I never found out for sure. I considered asking the clerk at the store to open it, but I never saw this again at WalMart and Zellers no longer exists. I ended up getting a used copy from an American seller on eBay.

comment Where can I find sugar cane?
@RavenDreamer, but your adage doesn’t fit as well as Keaanu’s. Yours means it will be somewhere unexpected which is not the case here; it makes perfect sense to find it at a grassy shore.

comment How do I open the Candy Box?
Notice that the stones, when collected in order of difficulty/possibility spell PLAY. I wonder why rlex chose to list them in reverse order…
