Cool! Just browsing around the forums, looking at the Abandonia Games Discussion part of the forum.. reloading, and.. I see a new topic.

I just think wow, a new game uploaded to the site as I was online. And then I noticed the name of the topic. :shock:

Star Control I was one of my favourite games when I was younger. I just loved it. And that did last for a very long time. I played it for years without a break longer than 4 days or so. I remember so many nights spent only playing the Melee with my brother again and again and again.. until we noticed the sun coming up (and our mother awaking, not very happy about us being awake all night only to play a "stupid computer game" )

For some reason I never was a very big fan of Star Control II though. I have completed it once, but never played it with such enthusiasm as I did the first one.

But once again I'll have to thank Kosta and the whole Abandonia community for getting me back together with one of my favourite games of all time.

Well I agree, the game was brilliant, but I always enjoyed melee in SC2 more - who knows why - but the full game was obviously much better than SC1 anyway.

Well yeah, SC2 was much more advanced in many ways and I don't know why it was that I never liked it as much as SC1. Maybe SC1 seemed in my eyes better for its time than the second one (on which I didn't have my hands very soon after the release).

And am I wrong or did SC2 lack the same kind of multiplayer melee thing that SC1 had? Or had my brother just grown out of gaming by the time we got SC2 in our hands?

Who cares about any of that stuff? Star Control 2 had one of the best plots I've ever had the fun of unravelling. And it was hilarious too.
