It's hard to believe how long good games work for you. I played Quake Team Fortress for years,only quitting when ID software released the source to dethrone it and try to get guys to buy quake 3 wich didn't work. I dabbled in a few others in misery until the semi again failed Wolfenstien Enemy Territory was released as freeware. I have been playing it on and off depending on my status since. Nomatter what i have tried i always come back, the mutliplayer is simply to much fun.

The "new" Riddick game is actually a remake of the first one on Xbox.

When I was younger and still had my Sega Genesis/CD I played Shining Force 1 and 2, Wing Commander, Master of Monsters, Aliens Ate My Neighbors, I even got addicted to that Sega CD game where you shoot sewer rats.

Been playing video games since the 70's when we had the consoles that played Pong-type games, then moved up to the Atari 2600, and played games on my Texas Instrument computer, also spent many an hour at a friend's house playing Bard's Tale on his Commodore 64.

Is anyone else the same, or have i got some sort of addiction to headshots? :D


I definitely was when playing Jagged Alliance 2, nothing more satisfying than having one of your guys standing on a roof and taking a head shot at the baddie below.

I do not get to play video games as much as I used to but these days I still make time to play Left 4 Dead on my laptop.

I tend to watch my son play games then play them myself anymore. That's the price of growing up, letting your kid play the games. lol

However, the reason for my posting is to see if anyone plays Left 4 Dead online? I have been playing the game offline for the most part and completed all of the missions but I'm done playing with the bots and wanted to see of anyone wanted to meet online to play.

What your describing sounds more client side than server side, usually happens with connections to servers when your ping time gets above the 150 to 200 range in most games. Things you can try to resolve it, turn off file sharing programs, on cable remove splitters that are 3/4 way but only splitting into two lines, on dsl perhaps change out your data line (the phone wire from the modem to the wall) with a shielded line. Other than those there's also choking, which is where your computer gets so much data that it has a tendency to repeat processes while the buffers are being sorted out for the next series of data (this actually happens more than anything else, usually over such small periods of time you don't see it though), only way to fix that is either lighten the load (kill processes that you don't actually need running to play the game) or a better cpu in the computer perhaps the cpu cooler could be a factor if it's not adequate to keep the cpu near optimal temperatures (around 30 to 50 degree celsius depending on cpu brand and series).

Hey hey...anyone on the Rockband boat?

That game is terribly addictive, and I've spent a sad amount of cash on it (downloaded songs).

I don't play as much as I used to (games in general) but it's an interest of mine that will never completely fade.

If you have a PS3, you can catch me on Rockband2, Midnight Club LA, Warhawk, Saints Row 2, Burnout Paradise, Guitar Hero Metallica, and sometimes GTA 4, Unreal Tournament 3, or Soul Calibur 4.

My network name is RavageX. Just say where ya found me and I'll add you when I can.

I LOVE World of Warcraft, if I had someone to play with who I was also romantic with in real life ->

I'm also seriously thinking about Final Fantasy 14 (the online one), it seems really cool.
I also recently heard about Star Wars: The Old Republic *drools*.

As far as online games, I'm looking for something that is almost exactly like .Hack//SIGN (the anime) but better: in-game real player or altered voice, high level cap, extremely realistic graphics, fast almost no laggy game, controller optional, and open-ended realistic game (open-pvp).

I pretty much like any kind of game, but I love a good story and I mostly like fantasy games even better if they are the "make your own destiny kind of game".

I'm only listing some of my most favorite games as the games I have played and own is too long for this thread (:)) .

Kingdom Hearts 1, Chain of Memories, & 2
Final Fantasy 9, 10
The Legend of Zelda: Everything
Devil May Cry 1,2,3
Bayonetta
Fable 2
Dragon Age: Origins
World of Warcraft
Prince of Persia 1, 2, 3, 4
Suikoden 4, 5
Assassin's Creed 1, 2, 3
The Darkness
Flyff (Fly for Fun)
Super Smash Brothers: 1, 2, 3
Dance Central 2
Child of Eden
etc..

;)

I love video games, considering I spent a greater portion of my life building a computer and maintaining/upgrading it so I could enjoy them. I think I'm more of a computer nerd than a video game nerd at times though. All I play is PC on my free time, but when I go over houses I play whatever they have, at that time it's about the people you're with, not the game you play. Primarily I play anything from the Half life franchise (mods included), Battlefield 3 (regrettably), some Killing Floor, Terraria, Skyrim, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. etc etc
I am an avid gamer is pretty much the consensus and I find it incredibly attractive when a girl can pick up a game and play it without ever having played it before, games take some degree of intelligence to quickly get the grasp of. Intelligence is sexy.
(Sorry if I just replied to one person I haven't posted on the forums yet ._.)

aha! I just found Majesty 2 this week. My old Majesty never ran on Vista so I found this one at a half-price bookstore. I'm playing Vanguard as my mmo of choice - oh sure only hardcore people play it but I lurve it. Pharaoh I put on occasionally except mine is glitched, sometimes the animations just stop.

Really fond memories of Black and White here - not only was I a god but I had a creature that I could teach to "deal" with my subjects. Sometimes I let my creature be bad and reward him lol When he threw villagers into the sea then took a poop and did that funny face saying "I did right boss di'nt I" I couldn't help laughing and rub his little furry belly. Example - Ape in this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znq-qpmhtRs

Rolled hard in Nox. Final fantasy in the old days and Chrono cross were all nighters. Had a bunch of roomates and we played a non-stop game of Genghis Kahn after work - good stuff, good stuff. Team contra was fun. Sonic, I banked.

Castlevania, dirk the daring in the arcades and the pole position type racing games.
Good memories indeed.

Resident Evil 2 I rented once and beat the same night - I do not suggest that Sam I Am.

Loved Skyrim, but Kingdoms of Amalur was better all except for the story which was disappointing. I am loving Mario Kart 7 on 3ds and started playing the Darkness 2 which I'm loving since Mike Patton did the voice of the darkness :)

My favorite game ever was Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core!

PC gamer mostly. FPS, RTS and a smidgen of RPG.

Im a sucker for a decent, fun indie game. Bastion is a FANTASTIC example of this, another is Shatter and more recently Hammerfight. Audiosurf and Alien Swarmcan have my babies... From Dust and Hard Reset were both heaps of fun too.

Preordered Darksiders 2. I loved the first one to pieces and the next one looks even better.

Command and Conquer series is one of my favorite RTS franchises ever. My introduction to gaming was me sitting on my dads lap watching him play the original CnC on our family computer when i was little. Never played the 4th installment and probably never will from all the bad stuff i hear.
Generals does not deserve to be called a CnC game. Not only does it have nothing to do with the Tiberium universe it also wasn't made by Westwood. RIP Westwood, you had the best game installer ever.

Played WoW from 2007 till the beginning of this year. quit from boredom and didnt really enjoy the company of the people i played with.

Need for Speed is one of the only racing games i enjoy. Racing tends to be hit/miss, mostly miss, but NFS has that extra spark that makes it more exciting than getting in a fast car and driving around a track for 5 minutes. NFS2010 was fun, shame that it had zero customization.

Skyrim was sloppily made. The world itself was beautiful but for the love of god i swear Bethesda couldnt make a convincing NPC character if you had a gun to their head. They need to take a lesson from Rage by iD Software, despite the problems that game had it had some damn beautiful characters and amazing environments (draw distance exempted. I dont appreciate models that for a brief second look like they are made of foam).

... i think ill stop >.>
