Oldie But A Goodie
Back in the bad old days of video games all we had was text adventures. Yes, I know, text adventures are crap. Sometimes I get nostalgic however and what could be better than sharing a crappy text adventure with a bunch of people online. That's where MUDs come in. MUD stands for Multi-User Dungeon. It is a text adventure that basically a group of people share online. Over the years these adventures have grown very elaborate.
Out of all the MUDs I've seen Age of War is probably one of the most elaborate (and most fun). The area you can explore is huge, there are arenas where players can meet in armed combat and the people are really friendly. If you want to explore what adventure gaming was like in the age of CGA graphics give Age of War a shot. I think you'll find you can have a good, immersive time without the frills.
