Video Games!
« on: July 15, 2011, 05:29:18 am »
The general discussion seemed lacking... Lol

So how bout some of those fun video games everyone loves to play? I guess this would be a broad topic then, anything from Mario to COD to Minecraft to Final Fantasy. Every platform, every genre.

F CoD!!!

BFBC2
BF2
Minecraft
Super Mario 64
Super Smash Bros. Brawl (emulated games ftw)
LoZ:OoT (honorable mention for being the best game ever created)
Starcraft II

But on another more serious note, how about one of you guys in control of the servers dedicate a small part of one to running a minecraft server? :P :P

I haven't played it that much in the past month, but I'd be willing to get back into it to play with all the doods that I know+love on cbox

We could make a statue of the IS characters

Give me a FPS and I'll play it.  Still, I'm a diversified gamer.  As for my all-time 5 favorites (1 max per series):

Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox) ~ Changed the genre more than any game since Doom.  (Note: Halo 2, 3, ODST, Reach would also be on my list if not for my self imposed restrictions)

Pokemon Gold/Silver ~ (GBC) Yeah, I'm not afraid to say it.  These games were awesome.  Add in Mewtwo from Red/Blue and you were unstoppable.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein (PC) ~ This baby beats out its predecessors because of its class based online play.  On PC, it was great.  If you were lucky enough to DL it on your Xbox 360 before it got taken off, I tip my hat to you.

Caesar II (PC) ~ Never hear of it?  That's not too surprising.  Released around the same time as Roller Coaster Tycoon, the object of the game was to build a city inside of a Roman province while expanding the Empire through war.  It was a complicated game then, and though there were some glitches, its still enjoyable today. (See: "Plebs are needed!")

Ultimate Doom for Windows 95 (PC) ~ If you or someone in your family bought a computer shortly after the release of Windows 95, you got this version of the game.  Paired with the D!Zone Gold expansion pack, it was impossible to get tired of playing.

Now I won't say that these are the best games I have ever played, but they certainly made the biggest impressions on me at the time of release.  Games like Unreal (PC), Half-Life (PC), Double Dragon (SNES), Goldeneye (N64), Super Mario Bros. (NES), Super Smash Bros Melee (GC), F-Zero (SNES), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3), Tetris (TI-83), Tomb Raider (PC), Donkey Kong Country (SNES), Clannad (PC, Xbox 360 versions  :P), et al have left good impressions on me.
I make a point of trying to improve myself each day so I'll be better prepared to take on the next.  It feels good!

Someone told me I forgot to mention Duke Nukem 3D (PC) in my last post.  I am a fan of the Duke, but I couldn't mention him.  You see, I already mentioned Halo...



The Chief's armor was in Duke Nukem Forever (Xbox 360), verifying my point!

Apart from a handful of visual novels, I hadn't played any video games this century. That just changed this month: I'd seen Portal memes for a while, as well as hearing songs from both games. It finally reached critical mass in my head, so I've been playing Portal and Portal 2.

While Portal was short it was excellent. It took ~6 hours to finish the first time and I played it through again probably a dozen times in the week I waited for Portal 2.

I got Portal 2 this week and I made it to the end boss battle in an 18 hour binge. Having just recovered from the sleep deprivation I'm preparing to dive back in. :D

Portal's a great game. xD

I haven't played a lot of games recently...

Currently, I'm playing Pokemon White (Who isn't?) on my DS.
Also, I'm patiently awaiting Tales of Graces f for the PS3 in English. I'm also pretty excited for some 3DS games, but I'm gonna wait for some reviews before I buy a 3DS, because frankly, I think the "3DS" is one of the dumbest systems I've ever seen lol.

Hrm, my list of absolute favourites isn't that big.

Persona 3 and 4
Fallout 3 and New Vegas
Xenosaga Series
Final Fantasy (Various)
Bioshock 1 and 2
Silent Hill Series

I've played loads more games, I love loads more games. Those are my favourites. Honestly though, when you look at that small list properly, it expands into about 20+ games XD

For all you awesome people out there who play WoW we should all reroll together on a random server and make a guild called Doki :) Would be a rather interesting thing to do
SO much love...
Firstly, DAMN YOU ZERPO for picking three of my favourites.

@Zerpo, that's a funny idea. but wouldn't it be hard if someone lives in EU or US or wherever you live since EU/US are split?

on-topic: Fun video games? haven't played many different this year. the only ones i've liked a lot are Dragon Age (the first game without expansion) and Hunted: the demons Forge (AWESOME Co'op game in my opinion) and now i am waiting for Blade & Soul and Skyrim.
