    GTA san andreas - I don't like eating right and exercising in real life, why would I want to do it in a video game?

    Half life 2 - Don't like FPSs on the PC that much.

    Halo 2 - Buying this one once someone gets them back in stock here in town.

    Everquest 2 - I refuse to pay ten dollars a month to play one game full of idiots.

    World of Warcraft - See Everquest 2.

    Gran Tourisimo 4 - Don't like racing games.

    ...I see no problem with all these games coming out now.

    The only one of those that appeal to me is HL2. Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on perspective, my video card is a little to old to make the game justice. And I don't feel like buying a new one instead of eating, so it'll have to wait.

    I'm personally looking forward to Dreamfall, the sequel to The Longest Journey.

    More or less, the same. But, I don't think the RPG elements of San Andreas are going to keep me from enjoying it. Halo 2...I dunno, I'll have to check it out. Fortunately, my brother is a game addict, so I can just cop it off him.

    The RPG aspects of San Andreas are so minimal that they don't really detract from the game IMO.

    I played Halo 2 which was pretty cool, but much like the 1st one so I wasn't too impressed. Halo, albeit a cool game, was never that much better than a lot of other FPS games to me.

    I'm looking forward to HL2 finally coming out. All in all it's a good time if you're a gamer.
  6. GTA SA and GT4 are the ones that I care about. EQ/WoW, kinda burned out on the MMORPG thing. Halo/Half Life, FPS are very unappealing to me.

    Jeez, I really can't wait for GT4. My GT, GT2, and GT3 have been sitting at 100% (Except for GT2, which is bugged and can never show 100%) for some time now. It's amazing how good the graphics are in this series of games.

    How can you prefer a console controller for FPSs?! keyboard/mouse is made to order for shooters!

  9. Prince of Persia 2: Warrior Within.

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
    Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

    Is Star Wars Battlefront any good? I want it to be good, but I hate being let down. --Star Wars has done that to me too much already.

  12. It's fun to play with friends for a few hours, but after that...thats it.

    It's one of those games when you first play you're like "this game is totally awesome!" and then a few days later you're trying to sell it back to the place because you've already done everything.

    It's a worthy rental and nothing beyond that, IMO.

    I played GTA San Andreas today for several hours at my brother's house today. It felt very stale to me. I felt like I'd done all this before.

    IMO the PC gets the best games but the cost of PCs and PC components is just too much for me right now. I really want to try a MMORPG like Everquest 2.

    But, unfortunately I dont have much time to play nowadays... :crying:
    I have three or four games on my PC that I havent had the time to play more than a couple of hours so far... also, I should be writing my HW and a smaller monography now, and learning for some of the classes... :(

    Is it just an unreal clone? FPS with Star Wars skins? (My needs are simple in this regard.) thanks Jake.

    Don't get me wrong, it's probably a great game. I'm just extremely bored with videogames in general, especially console games. About the only 2 genres of games that remotely interest me anymore are strategy and MMORPG. Both of these genres are done best by far on the PC. I wish PC's were cheaper :( .

    Man, I'm still trying to catch up with my Super Nintendo games.

    And Kiki the Nanorobot is currently kicking my ass. Man, that game can make one feel dumb real fast.
