blaster master. that's all I have to say about that.............

that game is about 12+ hours and no saves.

also, rainbow island. I've seen two people literally burn out their old-school nes back in the day, leaving it on day and night because they couldn't save.

ok so I lied about the one thing. lol.


one thing I'll admit I've used it for (some would call it cheating, I call it a way to stop cursing at my computer) is for side-scroll games with several hard jumps in a row, where if you fall you start over or die. I've jumped the first couple, saved, then jumped a few more, etc. if I fall I reload the save and start back at the previous jump. I do thing using it blatantly to cheat can make a game just as boring (due to lack of challenge) as some say not having that ability on other games may be.

ok so blaster master wasn't the only thing I had to say about that my bad.

I've abused them sometimes...I try not to do that often though (if you use them too much, it kind of takes away some of a game's challenge). A lot of the time I use them so I can stop playing a game for a bit and continue later.

People can't win. Either they're bumping old topics or they're posting new ones and being told they should have searched for old ones.

You know, I have noticed that at Underground Gamer, topics are automatically locked after three months without any new posts. No idea if it's possible to automate such a thing on vBulletin though.

Well, he added something to the topic, so I don't really care.

Me neither. Besides, this is one question that will never be settled one way or another.

on that note, what would be the ideal solution ?

creating a new topic about a subject for which there is already a topic (even if it is old)? or bumping an old one?

Seems to be quite the 'rock and a hard place'.

You'd think that bumping an old topic would use less space?
