dmm1000 Posted April 24, 2020 Report Share Posted April 24, 2020 Hi Folks dmm1000 here from Donegal in Ireland - i had joined way back a few years ago but never had a decent internet connection to do sweet FA - so now i have and want to dip my toes in the online waters. I am not a gamer of any seriousness - i've never had a "modern" console so to speak - i just dablle about on the PC, i did have a megadrive back in the day - went thru a few games Desert strike / Streets Of Rage was decent ......I always maintain over the years we've had games with beautiful graphics but only 10% of them were "enjoiyable" to play. Then the NHL series came along and for me it changed EVERYTHING , i played them all, the early ones were great, the more recent ones were over elaborate , had unnecessary tweaks and were being overcomplicated and had badly tweaked ice rink views , .but there was ONE GAME that stood out in that series ,as the mst realistic , a just about "right" learning curve & difficulty, perfect gameplay mecahics , ideal balance between challenging and enjoyable, and gave the player the feeling of being totally in control , of course that game was NHL 94'. I thought I was an OK player until I had a look of some of the game videos of you guys (any female players on the site as a matter of interest ? you know you're ALL welcome ). The qualities and skills amongst the top players here are just off the chart, never knew there was such a thing as a "pass shot" till I came here , nor did I ever manually control the goalie Played a few test games and have so much improvement to do . Think i'm the only one from Ireland on here (correct me if i'm wrong) , will do my best to recruit new players from here in Ireland and indeed this side of the pond My hope for the future is that someone makes a new Hockey game with modern graphics , but with the Ice Rink views and gameplay mecahnics,speed and difficulty of NHL94 intact. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
