Ahh, good times wasn’t it? This is where I made my very first friends in PC games. Some of which I still have added on some social medias and speak to.
If you go to their website; http://xfire.com/ . You will see they’ve gracefully said their goodbyes.
This is the platform I learned what is PC gaming. When I’d first started, I didn’t even know people built custom PC’s. My friends would send pictures of their LED ridden mini space heater PC’s, with their screens on their keyboards and whatnot. Ahh I miss the tackiness that went behind a proper ‘gaming’ setup back then.
On my time on Xfire I learned what all there was to PC gaming, and the opportunities to be had that Xbox and PS2 couldn’t even come near comparing to. In these days the gap between console and PC was absolutely massive.
Let’s reminisce for a second back on some of the greats;
My absolute favorite of all time; Halo: Combat Evolved & Custom Edition
And of course CoD 2
And many more which I can’t recall. It’s a big coming of age thing to me tbh, I used Xfire back in my freaking prime man. PC gaming was in such an awesome place, and mods were beautiful.
I hope you guys can also share some memories of your PC experience back in the pre-steam era.
Can only upload 2 pics sadly… since I’m a “new” member. Smh
