It's an open forum and im bored, besides i'll get my DSL on sunday so i think i'll start to collect games.

My choices are:

Civilization as the best game ever. i have spent more hours playing civ then being in school

Ages of empires II - the best RTS game ever, and the best multiplayer strategy game ive ever played

GTA2 - do i realy have to explain why ? :>

"Ages of empires II " hell yeah!!!! God, that was such a cool game.. we lost our copy though...
Aliens Vs Predator - that was EXCELLENT.. but sequal is a bit odd, they've tweaked the stats, and the animation is more realistic, but there's not such a forceful/ voilent effect to using a pulse rifel on an alien..
I dont play games much though...
oh YEAH!!!
Black and White : great for the first week or so... it gets a little repetitive after that (but really that's the downfall with alot of strategy games)... but it's still a pretty good game..

GTA2? Didn't care much for any of the GTA games until GTA3 came out on PS2. Guess what. It's coming out for PC in a few months with better graphics, and it may have multiplayer. That would be awesome if it did.

I don't really care much for strategy and PC rpgs. Well, except for Realthugz. That's a cool strategy game. http://www.realthugz.com <---Check it out. All you do is make an account like you would on Yahoo or Hotmail. It's a text based strategy game you play on the web. You don't even have to install anything.

1st person shooters all the way. I'd have to say Doom is still one of my all time favorite games. I play Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, and Quake 3 on a regular basis. I mostly play them to see the latest mods. You know, like Counter Strike and others. The mutators for UT are pretty cool. There's one that lets you ride on a nuke, Dr. Strangelove style. It's called...Strangelove. That's worth checking out if you have UT. Zombie smackdown is another cool mutator. It lets you set up how many zombies appear in a level, how fast they respawn, and how many gibs fly around after they blow up. I usually set it up to have 999 zombies and let them spawn at the fastest rate with the gib blast all the way up. I combine the Strangelove mutator and ride my nuke into 999 zombies instantly blowing them all up. You should see the 100 foot pile of gibs that explode into the air after that. I'll have to take a snapshot of it. It looks really cool.

I just picked up one of my all time favorite games, Command & Conquer. I actually got a bundle pack that came with "Command & Conquer", "Tiberian Sun", "Red Alert", and "Red Alert II". I got all 4 of those games for $19.99. Not bad, I've only played C&C and a little bit of Tiberian Sun before, so I'm really enjoying this. Freakin' Russians nuking Chicago, I'll get them for that.

Has anyone played the demo for Freedom Force yet? This game looks really cool. You get to create a super hero and get him to guard Metropolis or whatever they call the city in this one. BTW, I almost forgot that there is a strategy game that I still love. Has anyone ever played Worms 2 or Worms Armageddon? The Worms games are some of the best PC games ever! Mostly, why I like this one is because of its goofy sense of humor. That's one reason why I considered giving Freedom Force a try. The download is 76% complete! Almost there! I'll tell you if it's worth picking up when I give it a try. Here, here's the link for it. Oh yeah, and they messed up on the file name. They put eedom_Force instead of freedom_Force. It still links to the file so don't change it or anything.

Doom, Duke Nukem [Series], C@C [Tiberian Sun],Civilisation,Combat Flight Simulator,Worms.... on the PC-all classics.

And Gran Turismo series PS.

Anyone remember "Elite" on BBC/Atari computers-- that thing almost ruined my teenage years.......

How about Space Invaders/Defender

*flashback*

.........They sure beat pinball machines,at the time....best damn "antiques" you'll find.........


Accuracy,you say? hmm interesting concept..

I recently tried the game Rune online.

It's too cool, watch Gladiator then play the game, you'll feel the stress.

But you need to play with Honor as they say. 1 on 1 in an arena can really play with your heartbeat. Try it, it's really worth it.

There's also another really awesome PC game that came out a few years ago. It was called Carmageddon. This one's old and they have released 2 new ones since its release. Carmageddon 2 sucked. I don't know about part 3 but I heard it was even worse. They tried to add all of these bonus missions to it where you have to blow up satellites on rooftops and run over insane assylum escapees. It sucked! They should have just stuck with the basic gameplay of the first one (running over people in creative ways, while trying to take out your opponents Destruction Derby-style) My guilty pleasure was always running over the old lady trying to cross the street on her walker. Taking out 6 people at one time in a powerslide. Oh, the memories. If you have a 3DFX card you should try to get this bonus pack called the Splat Pack. It takes advantage of that graphics card...the graphics still look like crap, though. I sometimes see the game in bargain bins for about $5. It's more than worth it.

Yeah, Rune was fun. I've played it over a LAN with the max number of players. When you get in those small arena maps it's utter chaos!

I can't play shooter games on a console. I love using the mouse and keyboard. The best control possible for those types of games. You may need to change the control settings on your computer. I think its first set up with an inverted mouse or maybe you're trying to use the keys on the keyboard to aim up and down.

I played a lot of Carmageddon, but it gets old.

Currently I'm abusing crack-cocaine's closest relative in the computer gaming industry: Escape Velocity: Nova. Sorry Windows users, it's Mac only and it rules.

When I'm not doing that, I'm at work (so I can buy food and still be alive to play EVN), or I'm playing Diablo II.

It's weird that you're talking about that game while at the same time people are talking about it in a Chat Room I'm on. This game must be catching on. That's strange considering it's on the Mac.
