Doom. Does that date me? At least someone is dating me! I think I've used that joke before on this website.

This is a 3D virtual reality game where, instead of shooting people, you offer "casual" office greetings to them as they pop up around your office. Turn a corner and the Xerox intern says, "Ah supp?". You can return a "Not much," for 10 points, an "Ah supp?" in return, for a chagrinful 2 points, a "Good, you?" for negative 2 points, or nothing at all before your time runs out, for a ball dropping negative 10 points. Time is, of course, limited, as you navigate the office environment at top speed, avoiding bosses, spilling coffee and shuffling papers from one pile to another.

       Ha, I'll consider this as a minigame

       I thought Minigame was the department in charge of recreation in Orwell's 1984?

       Sounds like a very well disguised work at home scheme.

       Another feature would be a haptic glove that allowed you to raise your hand in response-greeting exactly to the same height as your passing office mate raised their hand in greeting to you, as they gave the, "ah supp?". Raise your hand higher than theirs as you respond with your, "not much", and lose self-esteem points, raise it to a lower degree and gain confidence points but lose compliance points.

       Not dated enough. Let's have the Colossal Cave version.

       // Doom. Does that date me? //   

       Yes, but it also dates the only other people who know how badly it dates you (us). For such a legacy-heavy industry, electronic gaming Seems to have a damned short memory. That's an outsider's perspective, of course.

       I think most Quake'rs would know Doom as its predecessor; less, I imagine 'Castle Wolfenstein' as that one's.

       Does anyone remember Dark Castle? Lode Runner. More recently, Kiki the Nanobot? How about that old screensaver that was just room after room? ...(crickets)

       The good thing about dating yourself is that you are always willing to come up and see your etchings at the end of the night.

       Spacewar, anyone?
RayfordSteele, Feb 05 2014
  

       <<etchings>>   

       I'm constantly saying no to myself, just to keep the romance alive.
JesusHChrist, Feb 05 2014
  

       Or maybe the ronance.
bungston, Feb 05 2014
  

       Ronance?
JesusHChrist, Feb 07 2014
  

       As in Onan.
bungston, Feb 07 2014
  

       Wolfenstein, Dark Castle, Duke Nukem, all classics...but somehow I yearn for a quadrant-based text-only collect- everything- that-isn't-nailed-down RPG.
Alterother, Feb 07 2014
  

       // Ah, but do you remember when Duke Nukem was a 2D sidescroller on MS-DOS? //   

       Yes. That's the Duke Nukem I mean when I say 'Duke Nukem'.
