In between games
I have spent some time lately to startup Legends of Valour but haven´t enough material to post anything yet. My saved charactes disapperad suddenly and I had to re-roll them and I have had very little time to give this game a chance lately.
Meanwhile, my poll about the readers average age of this blog is now ended. Not surprisingly, 80 % of the readers are at least 30 years old and almost 40 % are of the age 40 or older. Though this poll of only 21 respondents is not statistically correct it nevertheless shows what was expected. Most people playing CRPGS between 1985 to the beginning of the 1990s was at an age around 10 to 30 years old which this poll reflects pretty well. In my view the CRPG period ends somewhere in the middle of the 1990:s when the PC platform took over the game market completely and most games begun to switch to fully 3D.
Lastly, it is with sorrow I read that CRPGAddict has now decided to end his ambitious mission. He did inspire me to startup this blog. I do however fully support his choice. Real life must always be a firsthand priority. This is only a hobby after all. That being said, I hope he will return later on with his excellent posts from the CRPG era.
