What do you want to do next?

Lmfao Razz, you couldn't think of something which hasn't been created as text "adventures" by people Razz. It was a great time, hehe Razz.

The MUDs were the best though, since you actually was in contact with other people whilst playing. Made you realise you weren't the only nerd which found it fun to stare at letters Laughing.

I prefer browser type text game. Those MUD and text-base games gets me lost after some time and I'm totally like huh? Where am I?

I tried all the Infocom text adventures - many of them were hard, but making a 'map' made them a little easier.

There were quite a few that I never finished - not sure if I'm likely to go back and finish them or not!

I'd just like to point out that Zork and Nethack are COMPLETELY different games and genres altogether. Zork is a text-adventure game where you read descriptions of your environment and solve puzzles by typing in commands. Nethack is a dungeon RPG where the dungeon is represented by ASCII symbols. They are nothing like each other.

I have played and beaten both.
