Video Games!

(1/9) > >>

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!!!


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
then blow it up

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 play almost exclusively RPGs, especially Japanese ones. In fact, most of the Japanese I know, I learned from playing JRPGs in my teens and looking things up in dictionaries as I went along. :) Favourites include:

Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II
Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross
Eiyuu Densetsu: Sora no Kiseki trilogy
Final Fantasy, especially VII, VIII, XII and Tactics
Grandia and Grandia II

Marl Kingdom series
Okage: Shadow King
Panzer Dragoon Saga
Persona 2, 3 and 4

Planescape: Torment
Popolocrois Monogatari and Popolocrois Monogatari II
Shining Force series
Skies of Arcadia
Suikoden II and Suikoden V
Vagrant Story
Xenogears, Xenosaga and Xenoblade
Ys series

Non-RPG games I like include:

Alien Soldier
Castlevania series
Ecco the Dolphin series
Gunstar Heroes
Kirby series
Klonoa series
Napple Tale
Panzer Dragoon series
Popful Mail
Radiant Silvergun
Sakura Taisen series
Shadow of the Colossus
Sonic 1, 2, 3 and Knuckles
Thunderforce series
Uncharted and Uncharted 2 (especially 2)
Zelda: Link's Awakening

Clannad Man:
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!
