I play many computer games, all under the alias of Snowshoe Hare. Way back
when I started playing computer games, I went through many different handles,
such as The Lone Archer, Lynx, and Loam, but I was never fully satisfied, so I finally
chose Snowshoe Hare — partly because I had seen a cool picture of a
Snowshoe Hare, partly because I liked the name, and partly because I have a
movie about wildlife, and the Snowshoe Hare looked neat. It also gives me a
wimpy appearance (Snowshoe Hare? He’ll be easy to whoop.), thus deceiving my
enemies in whatever game I’m playing.
Currently I only really play Dragon Court, an on-line role playing
game, which is highly addictive and amusing, I do enjoy some others as
well. It can bee played at http://wild.ffiends.com/DCourt/Game.stm.
NetHack it a tiny (in file size) freeware Role Playing Game (RPG)
that is very complex, addictive, and amusing, but suffers from its lack of sound
and graphics. Pete thinks the designers should sell it to ID
Software, and that ID Software
should make it 3–D. I think that
it would be a waste to do all that while it is still turn based, but once
you got rid of the turn based system, made it 3–D,
and added sound, it would be a completely different game. Anyway, you can
download NetHack at http://www.nethack.org/,
if you want to see it.
