in archdruidcontest •  4 months ago 

RADICAL !
that's what people used to say in the 90s, right?

Whew! The 90s! What a decade it must have been, with glorious and legendary things happening for gaming, both in terms of gaming contents and also for gaming tech ! Apparently, the controller had a revolutionary leap in the 90s ! you're talking about the N64 controller, right? Yeah, that shit was made for aliens! How about that ! Apparently, there were games without the SAVE GAMES feature back when ??!?!?!?! It sounds like something that can't possibly be real to a spider????????????????? But people swear up and down and left and right that the 90s was a HUGE decade.... H U G E !

Sure, sure.

Anyway, a dragon and a spider met somewhere dark and secret, exchanged meaningful glances, whispered forbidden words, and scuffled. Mostly scuffled. At the end of the epic scuffling: a JOYFUL result! We have WINNERS to be announced for the third @archdruid contest in 2019!!!

FRABJOUS :D !!!

Oooh nice! That's a lot of entries. It seems like you guys are gonna need more judges (or time) in the next one. Looking forward to it.
Also, congrats for the winner! ^^

Good game, well played.

Bom dia!

I realize I'm late to the party - learnt about your contest today via @veryspider - but I felt you might want to take a look at my 1990s gaming posts, to go on yet another trip through memory lane;>)

If you visit the following page, there's 8 links to 1990 gaming posts as well as one to 1980 PC games.

Feel free to skip through them. I realize that time is a valuable asset.

Have a great day,

Vincent
