    yup... mostly RPG and Survival Horror these days (currently playing "Trapt" on the PS2, just finally beat GTA-SA last week and I'm not playing anything on the PC at the moment).

    Racing, FPS & online stuff bore me in general, they all have great realism now but also seem too 'been there done that' to me.

    Sometimes I break out the SNES and play Yoshie & Mario stuff.

    What's your game of choice right now?

    I play cs 1.6, played some Dod, played a lot of shooters, mostly singleplayer, played some UT multiplayer, tried some Quake...I've played a lot of games but none on a good level.
     
  4. I play games, but not all the time. When I have nothing else to do, I'll play a few levels of a game, but unless I'm really dedicated to finishing a game, that's all I'll do.

    And I play 'girlie' games - very rarely do I play games that are teh coolest among real hardcore gamers, especially male gamers.

    Games I like to play/games that I own:

    The Sims (1 and 2, plus all the expansion packs) for PC
    Goldeneye 64 (my first game)
    Banjo-Kazooie (that was a really good one, IMO)
    Prince of Persia games for PS2 - I have SoT and WW (WW I haven't finished)

    I have more, but I can't remember any off the top of my head.
     
  5. All I gotta say is WoW. :hyper:

    Used to be a total MMORPG nerd, but I've stopped now because I realised that they were controlling my life.

    Board gamer here. Axis & Allies, mostly. Risk, of course. One of my buddies just picked up the A&A miniatures set. It's a lot of fun! I don't play too many video games anymore.

    GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas. Also Gran Turismo. I've sort of become increasingly dis-interested in games since i started to take bass lessons and take my playing seriously.

    I Still enjoy the occasional classic ROM aswell. :)

    I used to play Warhammer too, but it was too time- and money consuming.

    Well, aside form all the PS2 and PC based games I have, I was shifting the remainig stuff that I had left behind at my parents the other day.........which included a lot of original AD&D books, the original Traveller set and expansion books and supplements, Behind Enemy Lines (WWII RPG), Recon ('Nam RPG), along with AH board games like Third Reich and Air Force (with the Dauntless expansion).


    Took me backa few years (OK couple of decades) I can tell ya!!! :bassist:

    Source seems easier because most people on CS have been playing for multiple years, most Source players aren't that experienced. But, it's changing fast..

    I won a local Streetfighter tournament back in the day (as Ken)
    I played alot of Mechwarrior2 through Kali in the mid 90s.
    Used to be big on Half Life TFC mod. I played medic alot.
    Now that I have other things to attend to I'm mostly a console gamer.
    Working on: Zelda Wind Waker, FFX-2 and Splinter Cell Chaos Theory.

    I prefer RPGs and love Tekken (Kazuya and Heihachi).
     
  19. same here...i get addicted to video games...
    my roommate brought back NHL06 and i accidently signed up for the 82 game season...plus my girlfriend just bought me tiger woods 06...yikes...

    of course i can't even touch RPGs as they devour every second of my life...i'd never go to class!
     
  20. CS: S is much better than the CS 1.6, valve ruined the original CS imo, just wasnt as much fun when they took over and changed things

    I play too many games, basically will play anything thats good, depends on the mood

    And yeah, i used to play warhammer too, very expensive hobby that was, still have most of the stuff in the attic
