With all the intense debate going on at the moment in the forum I though it would be nice for people if they could discuss something a little less important and a little more lighthearted.

So, who here plays video games. PC games or consoles. I've been an avid gamer for years now and I would love to discuss favourite games and systems.

I've been too busy (Kids tend to do that)to keep up with what's out right now even though I definitely want to check out that "Halo 3" for the X360. What game systems are we talking here? I've got the 360, the Wii, and the PS2. I just wish that I had more time...

As far as going back a bit, my all time favorite was "Goldeneye" for the Nintendo64. To me, it pioneered the way shoot-'em-up games should be made.

As afar as RPG's, I loved "Shenmue" for the Sega Dreamcast. I tended to get lost when I played that.

I saw your photo and I must say that I'm disappointed that I don't feel like I'm talking to Spike anymore...:)

I personally am addicted to the gambling games on line. I am bit of an addictive person and I try to stay out of the casinos, In new Mexico there is around 50 or so different casinos owned by varies tribes. Each with incentives and bonuses to intice the people in spending vast amounts of thier savings. I love it, the greed that comes with winning. I win some small amount and think that sooner or later I'll hit it big. I love to play Texas hold 'em. But like most people I barely get the bills paid. So because of my addictive attitude I try stay out of those places cause I'd be living on the streets if I gave in to the whole thing. So I paly on line for fun, with no money involved. It's fun that way. That's my game of choice. But I also find myself playing the playstaion alot, I am into the war genre of gamming, espeacialy that Clany franchise.

I loved Goldeneye for the N64, it was a classic, one of the better FPS games of its time.

The Dreamcast was one of my fave consoles, I've always been a SEGA fan, but saying that I never did play Shenmue which is a pity as I've head good things about it. When it comes to RPG's I've always been a fan of the Final Fantasy games, and I'm quite fond of the Pokemon games actually, if you want something as a bit of a time waster, they're suprisingly tactical.

As for the photo's, well I'm sorry about that, although if it helps I'm now clean shaven and have short hair so I'm more like Spike now, although not that similar.

Golden eye kicked ass, but I perfer From Russia With love. Its better. And for the Final Fantasy games, I was really pissed wen I had to import some of them from Japan cause the company didn't release some of the title series in the USA.

"Goldeneye" was so versatile. You could go in stealth or you could just blow everything up. It did set the gold standard for the first person shooter game. Should I get "Rainbow Six" or Halo 3" first? I've got a family to feed, I can't get both!

TC - If you still have the Sega Dreamcast laying around, I highly suggest looking into buying a used "Shenmue". You're bound to find it somewhere. It's a timeless classic that can still hold its own considering today's standards.

I also love sports games. The last great baseball game was "MVP Baseball 2005" and then they stopped the MVP series after that.

I do still have a Dreamcast so I'll look it up and see what I can get. If I can get hold of it I will do but here in Bangor we have a population of 40,000 and we have the nerve to call this a city, it's not like New York, where Manhatten alone has more than 30 times the population of this "city". Even recent PS2 and Xbox games are hard to come by.

As for the 360. I would suggest Rainbow 6, simply because Halo 3 from what I've heard is simply more of the same. I haven't heard anything good about Rainbow 6 from friends but websites and mags are giving it between 8 and 9 out of 10... which should mean either it's decent or the company who makes the game payed of the mag, which if probably more likely.

the game is great,but you are right they are flogging the game tc but still a damn fun game. i would suggest rainbow 6 and its sequel before halo 3 as rainbow 6 uses the gears of war cover system and that game pretty much set the standard form that point on. i hear even grand theft auto 4 is using the same cover system ,another great game i forgot to mention before was mass effect a great game.take kotor combine it with a third person shooter but still using the gears cover system ability to blind fire ,the ability to choose what path you take kind of like fable and kotor and how the game plays out a beautiful world to explore all in all a great game http://www.gamespot.com/xbox360/rpg/mass...ag=tabs;reviews

Personally, I fell in love when I played Fnal Fantasy 7 as a kid. Ever since then I've been collecting FF games for all consoles and I think I actually have all of the canadian/USA released versions. I even have the two movies. I bought a whole bunch of Final Fantasy games at once all together on Ebay. gotta love Ebay. Lol. Hrmmm. Other games I liked... I can't really think of any other specific ones.. Oh except Dragon Quest/Warriors. I really loved playing those and have played a lot of them. Lol I remember playing this game runescape on computer when I was younger in like 2002 or so. Lmao the number of ways you can waste time when your young.

Yeah i loved that game when i was younger too. FF7 has to be the best RPG ever in my opinion, along with Chrono Trigger.
I just find it hard to play games nowadays, i spend all of my time on the PC doing nothing. But lately i have been trying to get into horror games like Silent Hill.

I find it hard to get scared by anything media-wise nowadays too, so ive thought about smoking pot in the middle of the night and playing horror games when its dark and im all alone. Perhaps that could bring back that feeling you used to get when you were young and watched horror movies.

this is the most epic and in depth rts i have ever played
1000 of troops on the battle field,using moral and fear to defeat your enemy just fucking epic. and the best part is it is from 2002 so any pc should be able to play it. as far as war strategy this is the top of the food chain in my opinion.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iniE8QJ714c near the end of the movie they show an actual battle.

what you are seeing is not a cutscene, that is what actual game play of the battles looks like. the campaign map is turn based think civilization 4 for the same style but this intro youtube video shows all that:)

and here is a community made mod for Rome total war their are many great mods but this one is just fantastic, made by a bunch of die hard lort geeks but the mod is just epic.

may i present lord of the rings total war.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5SX7PQg11g all thought to play this mod you need (Alexander total war) an expansion to be able to play it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfCS2cHNsdI&feature=related just found this video shows all the factions for lord of the rings total war and it shows the sheer volume and crazyness of a battle (i advise turning off the volume thought for this video some really bad music on it)

Oh hey LoD was an amazing game. I own it and have played it several times over. Great story line but nowadays, I find it weaker than current games so I haven't played it in awhile. But still, a great game. Oh we forgot a series; Zelda. Gotta love the mind boggling Zelda series. Oh what fun as a kid. xD What do you guys think of it?

I love video games. I'm an avid Doom fan for one. Others I'm particular passionate about are the Sonic series (mainly the 2-D games), the Metroid series, Outrun 2006, Street Fighter 2 onwards, King of Fighters XI, the Quake series, Duke Nukem 3-D and others I forget for the time being.

I'm looking into getting into the Zelda series. Just to see what the fuss is about though.

I think you'll love em. I suggest Ocarina of time, Majora's Masks, The windwaker, and there's a few others but namely those. There quite fun all Legend Of Zelda: ... Google those names. xD Good fun. Lol.

Btw Gunz is an okay game. I forgot about it quickly but while I did play it, it was fun. I think I was level 47. I played MapleStory for a little while, I quickly found way to hack it though and then eventually got bored of it.

How about games you guys have played and hated? I personally don't like the Sims games too much. I have tryed EVERY one since my gf's mom has bought I think every single one for every console... Yikes. But yah I didn't like the mindless, repetitive playing of it. Whereas the goal was never there, just play until you don't feel like it anymore. And any goals that were made in the after games were just boring and pointless.

I liked a lot of Super Nintendo games. I remember playing those when I was young and the memories are amazing. I was never happier than when I was like 7-9 sitting there playing, Donkey Kong, Secret Of Evermore, Brain Quest, Mystic Quest, and others. I can still imagine what my face must have been like when my parents brought that thing home. I remember being incredibly happy and excited. Lol. I must have acted like it was gold.

Yeah, I'm borrowing Ocarina off of one of my friends sooner or later. I've seen it in action, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating really.

As for games I hate? Damn, I'd rather not even think about the ones I hate to be honest. The Sims is a pet hate of mine though.

i've always hated those real-life simulation games too.
i remember my sister played the "sims: livin' large" one a while back and i swear to you, for about 3 weeks she just sat there and mindlessly attended to her sims bladder and hunger while she nearly pissed her pants and starved.
yeah, i had a hacking account for gunz before but ijji has really patched up in the past couple months. pretty hard to find a working leaked hack.

Though the genre has basically died, I enjoyed the graphic adventure series pioneered by LucasArts (formerly LucasFilm Games - yes, the same LucasFilm responsible for Star Wars).
The SCUMM games (now all playable on modern PCs thanks to ScummVM).

Allow me to give a full list in chronological order off the top of my head - from the late 80s to late 90s:
- Labyrinth (pre-SCUMM)
- Maniac Mansion
- Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
- Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (The Graphic Adventure)
- Loom
- The Secret of Monkey Island
- Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
- Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
- Day of the Tentacle (Maniac Mansion 2)
- Sam and Max Hit The Road
- Full Throttle
- The Dig
- The Curse of Monkey Island
- Grim Fandango (using the GrimE system, post-SCUMM)
- Escape from Monkey Island (ditto)

Hours, hours and hours of fun (and often frustration) from my childhood to today.

There were also many imitators from other software houses, such as Simon the Sorcerer (1 and 2), Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Toonstruck, etc.

I also enjoyed Normality by Gremlin (1996), which was basically a hybrid of this style of graphic adventure with a 3D, Doom-style interface.

However, this whole genre of computer gaming has basically disappeared up its own asshole.
Perhaps because these games actually requires THINKING, and not just quick reactions and an attention span of 20 seconds.
Then again, the games' lack of replayability value might have had something to do with it...

I didn't get many computer games as a child but I do remember playing 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego' to death. I don't know why I loved that game but I did.

At the moment I'm considering playing 'World of Warcraft' again. I played it for a year or so and left but now some friends are returning and I'm thinking seriously about playing again. Otherwise I just jump on for a few hours on some FPS like 'Day of Defeat', 'Natural Selection', lots of Half Life mods. I've never really been a console player.

As they've already been mentioned I used to love the Sonic games as a kid, same with the Donkey Kong games. They felt fluid.

I was never anywhere near as fond of Mario as I was Sonic or Donkey Kong Country series (Donkey Kong Land series was good but not as smooth as the Country series).

One game series I do like, that is actually still pretty damn good is the Pokémon series on Gameboy and now DS. It's very tactical and quite engaging really.

Separation Anxiety (SEGA), Maximum Carnage (SEGA), X-Men Children of the atom (arcade), as for RPGs too many to list, though action/RPGs are my particular forte.

"Turok" was great when you put in the cheat code and had all the weapons and immortality. If you didn't have the cheat, the game would be damn near impossible to beat.

I'm a family man so it's hard for me to hang on to my old game systems because we have so much stuff crammed into small spaces. It would've been nice because I'm getting a strong sense of nostalgia right about now.

I find that today it's quite impossible to find a platform game, an adventure game or even a true RPG anymore.

All games now are either sports, first person shooters, mmorpg (ie. grind-fest), or action/hack 'n slash.

Some games try to incorporate some RPG elements into their action/shooters but it just ends up weakening the whole game. I find it's a pity that we're loosing catergories of games now just because of the graphics. Because games are expected to have great graphics they cost a fortune to make so games manufacturers will only make games they know will sell. Shooters, Action games and MMORPG's (which all seem to have no RPG element and just needless grind) are the games they KNOW will sell, so that's all they make.

It is strange when you find games made 14 years ago and comparatively they have better gameplay and graphics than one released 3 years back, the validity is in the videos ;\)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5VBMB5clOw <- Xmen COA, released 1994, later released on Saturn.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=CNuKXPSuT3I <- Guilty Gear X2 released on xbox, 2005

Same here concerning the Sonic games and Donkey Kong Country. I've never been a big fan of Mario to be honest, and I will say that Super Mario 64 just looks crap to me.

As for Pokemon, I'm not keen on RPGs to be honest (apart from Final Fantasy VII, but that's it really), and after the initial hype of Pokemon, I just lost interest. I admit to watching the series AND watching the first movie, but I was never interested in the games. Now I'm not very fond of the cartoon at all, and find that they're not doing much else for the game series.

Though I can't say much for the Sonic series as of late, considering the poor quality of the 3D games released. Take the one released on XBox 360 and PS3 for example. It should have been delayed further, as it's full of bugs and flaws.

I used to be a pokemon fiend, the game is still actually pretty fun.

I like games that are story oriented, so my favorite games are the Legacy of Kain Games, with the original Blood Omen being my all time favorite, Blood Omen 2 wasn't very good though, and seemed full of glitches.

I also really enjoy Final Fantasy 9

Guilty Gear XX was released in 2002 then re-re-released in 2005.
having played and passed the psp version i must say, it's a pretty advanced fighting game. it was made with old shcool graphics to get the arcade feel (and save some money along the way i'm sure) but it was still a better move then the games who attempt to put all their budget towards modern graphics and forget about the shitty plot whihc in the end becomes the end of the series' ie: tekken, mortal kombat, street fighter, etc.
the video you provided of the x-men video game on the other hand shows just how BAD the game play really was, all you have to do is learn how to chain a combo and get someone on a wall and POOF the game becomes pointless.
while i do admit the xmen was a fun game, it wasn't better than guilty gear ;\)

Actually the post was about guilty gear 'x2' not 'xx', that video was a combo video, I chose it because wolverine had a serious string of combinations in the beginning, which all were different moves and added up to be something like close to 50 hits, the thing is, if you watch the vid all the way through you'll notice the characters being beaten so easily are not at all being used, and that's why they are so easily defeated. In the the guilty gear x2 vid, 2nd round Sol defeats his opponent in one move, no corner. Though I'm sure guilty gear would have the same flaw (in fact I know it does) lol, as with most games of this genre there are always 1 or 2 characters of whom can string cheap combos together while lacking any mercy for downtime on the opponent. Still though, from 1994 to a game released 2005, well you know.

a different xmen coa video, if your curiosity does lead you further -> http://youtube.com/watch?v=MToyA9wWVWo&feature=related

I must admit, I'm a fan of the guilty gear series, always have been.

The Guilty Gear series has always had a one-move win for every character, however it's a 12 button combo and the character pauses and glows for about half a second before pulling it. This means you can hold back and block which is the counter for instant death moves and nothing happens.

I felt instant death moves in Guilty Gear gave it flavor.

Hmm. I've never really played too many fighting games but I have to admit I really liked playing Tekken 4. Since I was young I liked playing fightingtype games, but always had trouble finding a good one. I liked the newer mortal Kombat's as well.

I don't know, personally I would go with Halo 3. The Rainbow Six product line was never really appealing to me though. I have Halo 3 and I find it fun to play quite often. Good game to have friends over, drink up and play Halo 3.

Halo 3 is a great game, especially if you have friends who like to compete. Team mode etc. can be fun. However I think the Rainbow 6 is an all round better one player game and it's quite the "more of the same" than Halo often seems to be.

I always try to keep up with "NBA Live" and I started with it since "Sega Genesis" back in '95. I hate the new free throw shooting system though. Maybe it's because I still don't get it. The 2K series gave Live a run for it's money for a little while during the Dreamcast days. I actually didn't buy Live '00 and '01 because I was busy messing around with 2K and 2K1.

I myself am more of an nba live game fan the the traditional sport itself. Simply because i can orchestrate my players to do realistic nba moves all at ht e tip of my fingers. i own nba live o6 for the x box and wish to update to o8 when my finances are situated. I always wanted to play in the nba but not athletic enough but have good knowledgw of the sport itself that why nba live is tne best and most realistic b-ball game out there.

Personally, I've always hated sport games. Any sport of any kind except the whole otny hawk series. I like the skateboarding games. I got the special edititon of Tony hawks american wasteland signed by pro skaters. I love the game. I have pretty much every one from after tony hawk 3 lol.

I was more into RPG's like Final Fantasy, Dragon Warriors/Quest, I liked Kingdom Hearts 1-2 Lol.I also liked games like Silent hill and Resident Evil but I used to get so jumpy lmao. Never played those at 2 am on a stormy night with the sound blasted again. >_>

Final Fantasy 7 definately changed my opinion of the RPG. Ever since I have been addicted to the entire series.
Lately I can't get into anything else but Guitar Hero and Rock Band. It was the perfect way to introduce my daughter to the very basics of keeping time and now I have her into playing guitar, which is just amazing.
There's nothing better then sitting around with the guys having some beers and playing some NHL 2008, some of these guys get real upset when they lose and that is the funnest part of the game- watching a grown man have a hissy fit like a child.

I agree, the hissy fit is probably one of the most entertaining things about gaming.

As for Final Fantasy, I never understood why everyone raved about 7 so much. It was a very good game yes, but the storyline was convoluted, hard to follow, rather boring in places, extremely drawn out and many of the characters where exceptionally difficult to like, or rather 1 dimensional. By the time you get half way through the game to explain the plot to someone would take hours, would confuse them and you and would be astoundingly boring. The few things it did have going for it however was despite being a little excessively repetitive in places, the game was extremely long, with more than 100 hours of gameplay easily and it was actually fun. My basic opinion of FF7 though is it's a great game but not quite the solid gold that people often made it out to be. (I preferred FF8).

You should get neither. Go to your local video game store and pick up a copy of Call of Duty 4 instead.

Or get the Doom Collection. Better games all round. =P

On a serious note, the Halo series, in my opinion, is a very average, boring FPS series. Nothing to shout about. I remember playing the demo of the first game, and I hated it. As for the Rainbow Six games, they're sub par in my opinion. About the same as the Medal of Honour series and any FPS out there based on WW2 or recent wars.

However, one of the most recent war related FPS games that I personally enjoyed was Resistance: Fall of Man. Very unique, and twists the plot of history a wee bit. Enough to get me interested.

But there ya, go, that's my opinion. Play whatever you want to. After all, it's your choice.

Ehh, I personally didn't like the Doom collection too much. For a good scare I went with the Reseident Evil collection. I actually liked Medal Of Honour. Lol. I liked the one man war games. I also liked Tom Clancy's: Ghost Recon. It was a fun play with good tecnology. The sole thing I disliked was the need for teams and such. You can play a total of 6 men and two teams.

For sure, you can't go wrong with Resident Evil. The Silient Hill games are also good for the horror genre. Though they get pretty confusing at times. Parasite Eve was another good one, to bad they don't make them for the newer platforms (to my knowledge).
Unfortunately, beyond Guitar Hero and Rock Band most of my gaming anymore consists of the games my daughter wants to play.
Do you know what it's like playing video games with a 6 year old girl? You don't get kill anything.

Although Doom is a slightly scary game, it's really just a dumb fun shooter. I just enjoy shooting the shit out of daemons personally.

The scariest Resident Evil games out there are the first one, and it's remake. That's it really. After that, it's NOT scary to me.

I didn't get on with the Rainbow Six games to be honest. I suppose it's each to their own. Now as for Medal of Honour games, I liked the first game and Underground, but then I started seeing a trend of war based FPS games, and it just pisses me off big time. They're milking WW2 and other wars, and it's practically the same thing over and over again. At least that's my perspective on it anyway.

Like I said before, play whatever makes you feel good.

Mm, I played BloodRayne and it was okay. But it had a weak storyline, and low creativity.

Doom 3, lots of fun, very scary. If you didn't find it scary, you had the lights on or godmode on....damnit

hmm

I play the Sims 2 alot. I think I spend more time downloading stuff than I do playing...which is sad. Or not at all...I have no time for video games except as a diversion while I'm solving a particularily tricky Abrahadabra problem.

Oh, Neopets...I play lots of Neopets.com...good stuff..5 minute game in between painting or posting or chores.

Oooh look at my cutesie wootsie Scorchio:

If I am to say something, I would recommend "F.E.A.R." at the most. It is very scare at times, and is a great 1. person shooter. You'll love it, trust me.

I should have hit reply to 97and107, not Simon. My apologies.


Wow people here really do come in all shapes and sizes.. And apparently age.

Does anyone here like the Silent Hill series? I didn't like them when I was younger finding them very challenging and hard to go through. But older now I find them amusing, thought provoking but still challenging enough to make me think. The newer ones can draw screams from even some of the bravest. I found Silent Hill 4 particularily difficult. Although the story lines can be somewhat weak at times, it's a time-passer nonetheless.

What are your takes on some of the newers games coming out, for the WII for instance. There's a quite a buzz being created over the entirely new way of playing; actually having to move a bit. Everyone loves Guitar Hero I suppose but I'm loving my new Resident Evil 4 for WII. I found it good on the PS2 but it's even better now, growing in how much actual skill is needed to aim and now finally control your character. It's almost virtual gaming.


Also DistroyA I'd have to agree with you on the fact that war games nowadyas are all using the same themes and concepts. Nothing really changes anymore. They all base it on the same wars and same disputes with like objectives within them. Does get tiring and boring after awhile.

I tend to gravitate towards sports games because they take lesser time. I do love many of Rockstar's games. I just wish that I had more time to do it.

A few years back, a friend lent me "Red Dead Revolver" (Rockstar) and I was having a great old time playing it but the wife wasn't too happy about it.

I was at the store and had "Bully" in my hand but thought about it and knew it spelled trouble.

On the subject of video games, does anyone here read magazine reviews?
This has to be my all-time favo, dating back to '96 - it's not very often a game is bluntly described as "utter, utter shit"!

97and107, I agree with you on Doom 3, but I will say that it got less scary as the game progressed. I started expecting things to happen before they did, and usually I was right.

Though you've lost my respect for the Sims game loving.... :P

PigFeeder, the Silent Hill games, bar 4 (and 3 and origins, since I haven't played them) are the best examples of survival horror. That includes the original and remake of Resident Evil.

I have to say my favourite SH game has to be the second. I don't know why to be honest.

And Xutech, Bioshock was one of the most entertaining and captivating games I've ever played through. Once I get myself a 360 (I played it on a friend's 360), that is one of the many games I shall get for it.

Anyone have the new "Grand Theft Auto 4"? If so, please share some details - likes, dislikes, new features, etc. I've been so busy that I haven't had the chance to get a copy. Even if I did, I probably wouldn't be able to finish it until Thanksgiving given my particular time constraints.

It's not three bad actually. Though the first vehicle you come across has very bad handling.

There are so many features in this game. They've changed quite a bit of the engine, and have really gone to town on it.

Going to a bar in the game is bad, as once you've had a night out, vision is hampered big time, and makes driving a car even more difficult than it already was.

And stealing a car isn't as straight forward as it was. You have to break the window (If it's locked...), and then hot-wire the damned thing.

Cop chases can last longer now. And it's easier to evade them, of which is relieving in many instances. All you need to do to evade them is get out of the search area (Marked by red and blue on the radar...) and just sit and wait.

I haven't played through it per se, but I've watched my friend on it, and it was entertaining to watch, let's put it that way.

And, obviously, the graphics are fantastic. Very realistic in many respects.

Another reason why I want a 360....

I am not a huge video game fanatic, but do respect and play them nonetheless. I love many games, one of my favorites is Final Fantasy Tactics. The other Final Fantasies are great as well, I really don't know what makes them so attracting they just are.

I love the story and thought gone into a well done RPG, therefore I mainly play older RPGs such as Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, etc. I have not actually finished much games, as they tend to take a large time investment to do so, but I do enjoy playing them.

I just recently got into "World of Warcraft", mainly because I have heard great things about it from friends. Nothing to lose right - theres a free trial. Well, I ended up buying the game 3 days into the trial LOL! I am hoping I can stop playing enough so I can actually accomplish something, my web projects have been not so active as usual ;\)
