I played Freespace and FS2 when they were first released and I LOVED them. Then college intervened, and then life, and a long period of owning some severely underpowered Mac hardware. Finally I've returned to the PC world with some decent hardware, I noticed the FS titles available on GOG, downloaded them, and found the SCP.
I'm halfway through FS2_open for the first time, and I'm AMAZED.
This game that you wonderful, passionate, dedicated brilliant people have rejuvenated is the most incredibly beautiful piece of eye candy I could ever have hoped to play with.
Every light, every texture, every beam and missile and explosion is radiant and glorious. The detail is stunning.
I am so happy and so grateful to you all for bringing my childhood into the future with me. You rock my world. Now all I have to do is find my best friend from middle school (who introduced me to FreeSpace way back when) and show him what you all have done with it. If I can get a pic of his face when he sees it for the first time, I'll share it.
You've made me very happy.
