    Hmm, that's a tough choice but I'm thinking that's pretty stupid. It could make for some GREAT pranks though.

    That seems really disrespectful to me. Being able to go over to any grave with a clicker and seeing that person's last message. :meh:

    You could leave a video saying

    "Don't sell my gear, oh yeah yeah, it's good to see you to"

    I think I would make a special one for all those who came to see me...

    It would say...

    "I bopped yer wife!!!"

    That kind of reminds me of playing The Oregon Trail video game when I was in elementary school. We use to write funny epitaphs on our gravestones.

    I agree with Bassturtle, the whole thing is kind of creepy.

    They put TVs in refrigerators? Man, our people that freakin' materialistic? :rolleyes:

    YEah, but what's really interesting is, that in the post-apocalyptic world, when people stumble across these gravestones, some will still work and play messages, and people will get freaked out and include them in their new religion as something evil, that's to be avoided, or as a rite of passage into adulthood.
     
  10. Dude. Woah. Flashbacks to Apple IIe days. Yikes. Wow.

    The Oregon Trail OMG.. don't forge the river, it's too deep!
     
  13. I always got eaten by wearwolfs. WHY COULDNT I RUN AWAY?!?!

    And on video games, I would always make weird names. Like once, I named myself "I'm a loser" and everyone in the game would be like "Hi, I'm a loser." It never got old. :D

    I was so good at that game, my team always won. I was the best buffalo hunter in the class.

    anyone ever play the amazon trail? similar concept, only on the amazon river, and you were trying to discover new species of animal.
     
  15. no it doesnt

    note to those who dont read some other thread I am not using punctuation tonight so what ever
     
  16. oh and I think it is a dumb idea The basic concept is good for pranks gravestones that have the dead persons voice saying something but I don't think its a good idea and I am pretty sure that there would be problems with people having ehh what ever
     
  17. Amazon Trail is just a generic brand of Oregon Trail. It looks, smells and tastes the same, only something is different. :smug:

    Ahh, yes, the might Apple IIs; good times they were. :D

    I once had......get this: a command line interface version of Oregon Trail. I use to play it on a Laser machine with a yellow monochrome monitor. How you hunted was really cool; you had to type a word, such as "bang"; the quicker you typed, the higher chance of getting a hit was.
     
  20. I don't remember wearwolves in Oregon Trail...

    Good game, though.
