JagFest 1999

Recommended Posts

Since @KevinMos3 posted some recent strolls down memory lane, figured I might as well do the same!

 

I remember displaying the first ever footage and demos of some (at that point) unreleased games, such as Skyhammer, Total Carnage, Virtual VCS, and more. We had a Lynx tournament with Checkered Flag and maybe some other games too. @goatdan / Dan Loosen / Max / Gary were there in their pre-MGC glory, along with @K3V, @MegaData, Micah Rowe, Eric Mylonas, @Dan Iacovelli, and more that I am surely forgetting. Some traveled over 10 hours just to attend! I remember being super-impressed by @ZylonBane's mad Zero 5 skills -- he played the entire game in one sitting! Lots of fun, and we even had a couple of random local visitors who walked by and paid to come in just to check out what all the gaming was about. Great memories of a great community for over 20 years! :D

Hah.  Well, as I put my recap in the 2001 thread, guess I don't need to here.

 

However in addition, I do remember the Skyhammer reveal, I was there for that part of it!

 

I was just a random single attendee, didn't know anyone in advance or talk to a lot of people in depth.  But I recognized several once I started going to MGC!
