nickie,

Glad to hear someone else likes the tycoon games. "ZOO Tycoon Complete Collection" is my first. I'm an animal lover so picked this over "Rollercoaster Tycoon". Think I'm reverting to a second childhood lol . Love "Nancy Drew" also!

It's worth trying all games because a person just never knows. Even an old stick-in-the mud like me! I'll give GK2 a try and see if it plays better for me now that I know more about what's going on.

I'll do just fine unless my PC gets "Twitchy" on me again. Wouldn't boot since I was last in the forum until today! GRRRRRRRR mad .

Thanks guys laugh

I'm with Schwab on this. ALL of those reasons are
reasons why I love this genre. You just can't beat it on rewards and instant gratification!!! Even in adventures, where you gradually earn "rewards" as far as solving puzzles....rpgs give you MORE "cool stuff!!!" I just became hopelessly addicted once I started! Never would have thought THAT could happen, BUT...I was so, so wrong! LOL


PLAYING ON PC: World of Warcraft...nothing else...there is no need for ANY other game when you have THIS one to play!! LOL

Milee, you're so right! If you don't try other genres, you never know if you are missing something you may love. And hey, why not revert to childhood if we didn't get to play these fun games back then? WHEEEEEEE. I really thinks these games keep our minds active and imagination going, so that we aren't older than we have to be.

Nipomo, another thing about RPGs that is immensely attractive to me, is that most of them are so less structured than most adventures. You can go where you want to, and decide how you want to accomplish your goals. As the others have said, you invest more of yourself in your character, and because of that, the game seems more immersive. Also, most RPGs take longer to complete, so you work with/as that character, or characters, for quite some time - I played Divine Divinity for months, and I think I could play Morrowind for years without running out of things to do.

Nipomo,

Thank you for saying that! I'm always afraid of asking a stupid question. I expected to be ignored going to a RPG thread asking what RPG even WAS. Your living proof that for every question, big or small, there's always someone else out there looking for the same answer.

GBs has wonderful, understanding, and classy people that I will NEVER underestimate again praise !

Welcome to the family Nipomo welcome .
