Need for Speed is a game that started out for the rich. If they had a powerful computer or a 3DO (yes, the imfamous 3DO), you would of played Need for Speed.

 The series continued on computers. Need for Speed 3 and 4 needed a powerful graphics card, but these cards were made from companies that went soon bankrupt, leaving these games on the PC unable to be played on future generation on computer hardware. (Don't buy the PC version of Need for Speed 3 and 4 unless you have a Voodoo card, aka, a rare computer chip artifact that needed to play the damn thing, trust me). The series continued with Porsche Unleashed (altertative name: Porsche 2000). It's about the car manfacturers story of how they've become Porsche we all know and love today.  Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2

well the title is not very accurate since technically all games are community based. even MMORPGs that we see now ....however crappy it is.....has a community around it. dedicated fans of a game sticking what what they have worked for and hoping they can achieve more. after playing enough of MMORPGs, i find myself wondering about what started the whole thing, what was the first spark which made these games we have now exist.

THE SPARK OF ALL MORDERN GAMES TO DATE(except copies)

As most of you may know, long before computer games, the father of all mordern computer and video games, the table top RPD, D&D was already in existence, and if you don't know what D&D is, you better brush up on your gaming history if you consider yourself a respectable gamer. It was awkward to play it around people since....it was basically a boys version of playing house, except that instead of reenacting daily events, the players were heroes in a vast world where anything could happen.

Like i

Video games were introduced as a commercial entertainment medium in 1971, becoming the basis for an important entertainment industry in the late 1970s/early 1980s in the United States, Japan, and Europe. After a disastrous industry collapse in 1983 and a subsequent rebirth two years later, the video game industry has experienced sustained growth for over two decades to become a $10 billion industry, which rivals the motion picture industry as the most profitable entertainment industry in the world.Video games were introduced as a commercial entertainment medium in 1971, becoming the basis for an important entertainment industry in the late 1970s/early 1980s in the United States, Japan, and Europe.

If you’re a gamer, most likely you don’t have a straight, out of the box desktop. You have modified your PC, be it with changing your tower, updating your graphics cards, or just adding ram. The world in which the average desktop tower is a beige colored, bulky piece of equipment has come to an end. As for consoles, the idea of a console has also changed drastically since the original Magnavox Odyssey, a bulky white and brown gaming console that matched your Eight-Track. Since then, consoles have moved forward, pushing to new heights that were never expected when they were first introduced.



Games began to make it’s move from arcades to in-homes with the introduction of the Magnavox Odyssey in 1972. The breakthrough introduced Pong to home gamers, spawning several versions. In 1976, otherwise called the beginning of the 8-Bit era, the Atari took the lead of Second-Gen with Space Invaders, along with the exclusive rights to popular arcade games, even though the Colecovision had rights to Donkey Kong. Third-Gen consoles are probably considered the most popular with the introduction of the NES, the upgraded Atari, and the Sega Master System in the early 80‘s thro

The Scourge of Lordaeron
Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos


After preparing for many long months, Kel'Thuzad and his Cult of the Damned finally struck the first blow by releasing the plague of undeath upon Lordaeron. Uther and his fellow paladins investigated the infected regions in the hope of finding a way to stop the plague. Despite their efforts, the plague continued to spread and threatened to tear the Alliance apart.

As the ranks of the undead swept across Lordaeron, Terenas' only son, Prince Arthas, took up the fight against the Scourge. Arthas succeeded in killing Kel'Thuzad, but even so, the undead ranks swelled with every soldier that fell defending the land. Frustrated and stymied by the seemingly unstoppable enemy, Arthas took increasingly extreme steps to conquer them. Finally Arthas' comrades wa

As Kil'jaeden prepared the Horde for its invasion of Azeroth, Medivh continued to fight for his soul against Sargeras. King Llane, the noble monarch of Stormwind, grew wary of the darkness which seemed to taint the spirit of his former friend. King Llane shared his concerns with Anduin Lothar, the last descendent of the Arathi bloodline, whom he named his lieutenant-at-arms. Even so, neither man could have imagined that Medivh's slow descent into madness would bring about the horrors that were to come.

As a final incentive, Sargeras promised to bestow great power upon Gul'dan if he agreed to lead the Horde to Azeroth. Through Medivh, Sargeras told the warlock that he could become a livi

Chapter II: The New World



The Founding of Quel'Thalas
6,800 years before Warcraft I


The high elves, led by Dath'Remar, left Kalimdor behind them and challenged the storms of the Maelstrom. Their fleets wandered the wreckage of the world for many long years, and they discovered mysteries and lost kingdoms along their sojourn. Dath'Remar, who had taken the name Sunstrider (or "he who walks the day"), sought out places of considerable ley power upon which to build a new homeland for his people.

His fleet finally landed on the beaches of the kingdom men would later call Lordaeron. Forging inland, the high elves founded a settlement within the tranquil Tirisfal Glades. After a few years, many of them began to go mad. It was theorized that something evil slept beneath that particular part of the world, but the rumors were never proven to be true. The high elves packed up their encampment and moved northward towards another land rich with ley energ
