Old School Games  
I've recently went through some stuff and found three over ten-years-old computer games. \o/

The first is Pharaoh, one of those isometric city-building games. It was my very first pc game back in 1999 and I remember loving playing it. All those tiny people running around and trying to please me...well, until I forgot to throw parties and the gods got angry. Oops.

The second one is Technomage, a German developed role-playing video game but even back then I played both versions (German and English) because it helped me to learn to speak English (at least that's what I told my mom). The different worlds are really beautiful, even though they're not as HD as these days, and the quests are sometimes not as easy to solve as you would think at first. :D

My favourite though is and always will be Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, also a role-playing video game with an incredible open game world that I haven't managed to see all of it yet. I love the whole world layout and you can literally get lost in it and forget about your main quest. You have the choice between good and bad decision, and you never know how it's going to effect your journey until much later (when you're so bad that no ones wants to speak to you, you're screwed. Damn. I did better the second time around...) It's an amazing game. xD

^_________________^

I found my steampunk books and games mostly by searching for a very long time. :D At least Goodreads offers a genre-search and so I found more steampunk books there than anywhere else. ^^

AH-HA! I had an account there once, early on, then my computer died and with it that account. I really need to make a new one. So far I'm only lurking. xD

Goodreads is amazing for that kind of thing, yeah.

It truly is. Sometimes I spend hours there looking for new books to add to my list. :D

I WILL! First thing. :)

Me too. I don't wanna imagine how many books I could've read in the time I go searching for new ones on goodreads. :P

Time is a fickle thing and you never have enough when you really need it. Other times it's like time isn't passing at all and you're stuck at work for what feels like days. *headdesk*

We need to be able read and look for new books at the same time! YES!

Oh, definitely. Always one or the other.

YES. So much.
