listening to the opeining theme from Thousand Arms (ps1) right now.
and was playing FF7 (greatest game evur) last night.
any games you're particularly hyped up about?
.hack quartet......my precious......
and of course, the crown jewel, ff7.
and thousand arms,
and maybe disgaea? (the first, not the 2nd)
and i can't neglect my n64........mario party 3. ftw. and paper boy, and yoshi's story.
Air Rivals, lol. People keep KSing my Ellos and Naros...
It really depends on what i feel like playing really.. but some games are far higher on my list then others, like FEAR (super phycked for up coming Project Origin) GRAW 2, Fallout 3, Oblivion, R6 Vegas 2, the entire HL series, Dawn Of War, humm ill have to think more
In before people arguin about game X is better than game Y.
My favorite video games are usually fighting games (although I'm not that good at them) out of the ones I've played my favorite is probably either Street Fighter II or Super Street Fighter II. After playing Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, I'm super-psyched for Street Fighter IV.
My favorite adventure game is probably Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2. The LoK games have what is quite possibly the most compelling story I've encountered in a video game.
Honorable mentions: Galaga, Shining Force, WWF No Mercy, Elder Scrolls (series), Metal Gear Solid (series), Tekken 3, and Ratchet & Clank (series).
yeah soul reaver did have a very compelling story, tho I never got to the third one tho
Played the Indigo Prophecy recently.. that was quite the interesting game, more like watcching a movie, but it was pretty intense none the less
oh and Left 4 Dead is currently pretty high on my list, but I love zombies.
Well LoK:Defiance is interesting because if you haven't tried the Blood Omen games it'll be your first chance to try playing as Kain. You get to play as Raziel as well, but it's one of those games where you only play certain parts with a particular character. I won't spoil the story for you, but it's definitely worth playing through when you get the chance. A lot of loose ends are nicely tied in the story of Defiance.
I've heard about Indigo Prophecy, but it's one those games I'm a little iffy about.
Gyah, I can't wait to try Left 4 Dead. Stubbs The Zombie is the only other game to fulfill my fantasy of leading a zombie horde, and I really need a fix for that urge >__<.
EDIT: Forgot to mention one of my all-time faves, Deception III: Dark Delusion. It was the first M-rated game I ever owned, which may not seem like that big a deal (I had played other M games before like Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil), but the story for the game was very morbid and left quite an impression on me. Sadly some bastard must've ganked it because I no longer have it -__-. However I do have TÐ¯APT on the PS2, which I find is not nearly as fun or as immersive as DIII, but it works as a good substitute (you can even get an alternate outfit that resembles the one worn in DIII).
After some research on recent and up-and-coming strategy games, I'm waiting for Dawn of War II.
F.E.A.R. games, Warzone 2100, Zelda ALTTP, and eeehm....C&C TibSun...oh yes, Diablo II...
Ooh! Ooh! SimCity 4!!! that one too!!!! ^_^ [/unswayable opinion]
My favorites games are:
Missile Command and its variants: It's a simple but addictive game- SHOOT THE MISSLES THAT ARE OUT TO NUKE YOUR CITIES!! I am currently addicted to these games.
The Sims: I used to be addicted to this as well. There's just something about the Sims and its spinoffs that I really like.
Snood: I used to be addicted to this too! A clone of the game "Bust A Move", I like this game because of its simple but addictive gameplay and for the unique-looking characters.
Spectre: I remember this game from my childhood and I am so happy to be able to play it again! This game is a first-person shooter, the player drives in some sort of a tank to collect flags and shoot at the enemy tanks.
Sim City 2000: I haven't played it in a long time but I still remember this game from my childhood and still remains as one of my favorites though I never was good at it!
Sim Tower: I also haven't played this game in a long time but it's a Sim game where you manage a hotel. I'm not too shabby at this game. It's still one of my favorites.
Mario Kart: A racing game series I can actually like! This may sound crazy but Rainbow Road is my favorite level in each of the games! (well... except for in Mario Kart Super Circuit :-/ )
Pole Position: The other racing game I like!
Number Munchers: Okay so I haven't played it since grade school but it is such a fun game!
Dance Dance Revolution: I like the music and that I am able to dance without making a complete *** out of myself! :D
SimCity 2000 is good, but you should then really try SimCity 4 + Rush Hour... Awesome and serene...
SimTower... Cool, but not as cool as SimCity...
The Sims.... Awesome, because i like interior decorating and architecture...
So: + respect points... ;010
GTA:SA = win. It also has a couple of multiplayer mods, = more win.
Yeah, but GTA SA is now only fun for cruisin' around and shootin' some pool...
GTA 3 and vice city
sim city (the first one)
the original sims to a point, my sis always hogged it and as a result now has every expansion pack for the sims 2 and is pretty addicted. i like building buildings in the sims, the people are ok. (you should see this thing i made, i literally made an old-world castle!! xD so epic.)
for older games, galaga, dig dug, pac man, DK
n64: mario party 2&3, mariokart (inspired me to write my first poem! xD ), yoshi's story, paper mario, paperboy (ahhhhh......nothing like a good THWACK to that annoying neighbor kid to take the edge off...), Donkey Kong 64 (<333), bust-a-move 99', i'm sure there's more but my brain be DURRRR....
ps2: .hack quartet (infection, mutation, outbreak, and quarantine), disgaea: hour of darkness, weâ™¥katamari, harvest moon, stretch panic, anything one piece (would say naruto too but can't afford them ;_; ) gta 3 and vice city, KH1 (never played 2), i'm sure i'm forgetting some...>_<
ps1: ff7, chrono trigger, thousand arms, frogger, uhm can't remember any more ^^;
game boy: basically any pokemon game, (much love to the originals! WHOO! ) ppg games, there was this game my old friend had called laura.....it was like a megablox game or something.
sorry for such long post!! >_<;
PSx: Metal Gear Solid!!!
Okay, after some thinking I decided I left out a pretty crucial game the first time around, so here's a revised list:
Bard's Tale I & II, Street Fighter II, Galaga, Legend of Zelda, Super Street Fighter II, Sonic Spinball, Shining Force, WWF No Mercy, Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, Deception III: Dark Delusion, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto IV, Legacy of Kain (series), Elder Scrolls (series), Super Smash Bros. (series), Metal Gear Solid (series), Tekken 3, and Ratchet & Clank (series).
BoF III, Legend of Mana, Chrono Cross, Disgaea, Azumanga Daoih Advance, Digimon Worlds II & III
Kill or think? Games with both ideas are my favorites
Grand Theft Auto saga (since GTA2 to GTA4) I like to kill cops
command and conquer saga(from tiberium dawn to red alert 3, but generals is my favorite).
On macintosh, marathon, quake, and simcity 2000.
QuoteGrand Theft Auto saga (since GTA2 to GTA4) I like to kill cops
Well you just got on my bad side <_< I cirtanly hope thats in a completly fictional way.
Well, in GTA i do like to go on a killing spree to get max cops and then jump from a really tall building with guns blasting, but that's more when i get bored and want to kill my character in a cool way...
The killing in GTA doesn't really float my boat and is definately not the main reason i play it...
dont get me wrong, I love GTA. I cant say how much time ive spent playing GTA 4, but make no mistake, I never once went on a innocent/cop killing rampage. The only time cops died is when it was required for the mission. Hell, the game is alot easier to play when you play it like that, cus you dont have a constant wave of police after you causing you problems.
QuoteThe killing in GTA doesn't really float my boat and is definately not the main reason i play it...
For me it's not about killing cops either, although that seems to be the case for a lot of people I've discussed GTA with.
GTA III and IV are probably my faves in the series largely because of their setting, but it's also because they were each innovators at the time of their release. While Vice City introduced a good deal of new features and was inspired by two of my all-time favorite movies (Scarface
and Carlito's Way
), just didn't quite capture the same gritty feeling I had playing GTA III for the first time. I can't say anything about San Andreas because I haven't played it yet, but GTA IV was awesome. While it didn't give me the same feeling as GTA III, GTA IV was a helluva story. I mean, GTA IV had a really eclectic cast of characters each with fairly interesting origins (with the possible exception of Brucie, who is often more of a pest than anything else >__<). Anyway, all that aside, I still do indulge in the occasional killing spree in GTA. Often I'm just trying to see how much "I" the AI has, and how high of a wanted level I can attain and still be able to escape (or in the case of a six star wanted rating, how long I can survive). My preferred method for sprees involve finding a nice perch and sniping until I get the law's attention. Blowing shit up is also fun, but it causes things to escalate far too quickly. Anyway, I never save after such escapades because they usually end with me being caught or dying, and I prefer to keep my weapons/money.
Quotedont get me wrong, I love GTA. I cant say how much time ive spent playing GTA 4, but make no mistake, I never once went on a innocent/cop killing rampage.

Refer to above, I'd say most people are goofing off when doing such things (that is, not something they're likely to save). Generally it's something I do when incredibly bored and/or encountered with an extremely frustrating mission (like the Bank Heist >__<). During normal gameplay I try my best to avoid law enforcement (which is pretty difficult if you ever find yourself taking a friend out for a drink).
True, so true... Most of my killings in GTA are traffic accidents...
As for GTA IV, as far as i know it's not released for the PC, so it'll be a while before i'll play that... And GTA San Andreas is worth a try, it has a really huge world and also the missions don't bore that fast...
Heh, dispite how people play him niko is prolly my favorite GTA character because he seems to have a concious and moral. I play him like his character is depicted, someone that doesnt like all the killing, but has to do it to survive.
as for the AI.. the AI is usually retarded. If you steal a helicopter and get a wanted rating, you can just hover off shore and police cruisers will just keep driving into the water. how intelligent is that? Id love to see one of those games where they put more effort into the AI, actually made them act like real cops, rather then a bunch of random cop bots all converging on the same spot. Game difficulty would go through the roof if you had to fight police that acted as a unit, used cover, etc..
Added after 3 minutes:
bah, I disliked san andreas. I disliked the whole theam to it. The others all have a mob war feel to them. If you like mafia movies they are interesting. San Andreas puts you in the shoes of some gang banger punk on the streets of an LA knock off. No interest in that. I hate rap movies or games that make acting like as shit head seem cool. At least mobsters are professional.
Well, i can agree with that, but GTA SA had a nice big world i love to roam in...
And difficulty will indeed be hard with a capital H if the AI was mor like that in F.E.A.R. ;010
Quote from: "CaptBrenden"Game difficulty would go through the roof
Modern games = Difficult.
Not gonna happen.
QuoteTrue, so true... Most of my killings in GTA are traffic accidents...
Well, I wasn't actually referring to traffic accidents. One of the cool things about GTA IV is that once you get some friends (in game, not online) you can actually hang out with them. One of the more interesting (or annoying) things you can do is actually go get hammered with them. Realistically, this produces a big problem for your motor skills (you actually stumble out of the bar and start speaking incoherently with your friend/date - it's funny as hell), and obviously this also causes a problem with your ability to drive. If you drive drunk, cops will notice and will pursue you like they would for any other infraction (you get a one star wanted rating). Luckily you can actually ride a cab in this game (if you have enough to afford it, which isn't much actually), but it takes awhile for you to muster the ability to hail a cab when you're drunk, of course, there's also the issue of a cab actually being around when you need it.
QuoteHeh, dispite how people play him niko is prolly my favorite GTA character because he seems to have a concious and moral. I play him like his character is depicted, someone that doesnt like all the killing, but has to do it to survive.
Indeed, I'll try not to spoil the details for Smokey's sake, but when it came to the main story that's generally how I made decisions. For example, here's the decisions I remember making (and why):
Ivan: Alive (Vlad pissed me off)
Cherise: Alive (Even though she cheated, I didn't think Dwayne would really be happy if she was dead - I was right)
Playboy X or Dwayne: Playboy X (he was an alright guy, but he didn't seem very loyal when he asked me to kill Dwayne)
Clarence: Dead (I can't remember why I killed him even though I never liked Francis)
Derrick or Francis: Francis (I liked the McReary's but I thought Francis was a hypocritical, sanctimonious bastard, making him the oddball out)
Darko: Alive (Even though Niko really wanted it, I didn't think it would really make him feel any better)
Revenge/Money: Revenge (I felt this decision was a good deal different than the Darko one, I really hated Dimitri for one thing, but also given that he is a total rat bastard, I had a feeling if I didn't kill him then, he'd end up killing me later)[/list]
For me, random killing sprees were, for lack of a better term, "non-canon". I wasn't really thinking about Niko or the story at that point, it was just a departure - like playing online. Now that I think about it, there's a crime I do indulge in quite often without even a thought about it in GTA - theft. I'm always stealing cars - if I like it, I take it.

True, but let's not forget that you don't have access to helis earlier in the game. Say what you will about the AI, but they still make for a very devastating mob to overcome.
AI is hard anyways to handle in a great big environment and in large groups...
you have access to helis as soon as you make the second island. just gotta steal them from the heli tours :P As for the driving drunk.. i normaly took the helis for dates/hang outs, and you fly alot better then you drive, and the cops dont really chase you :p cus "THAT HOW WE ROLL! CUS WE ARE FUCKING ALPHA!"
Thats some red army shit right there.
Red army is cool....
Sorry for being a commy bastard... ^_^
Quoteyou have access to helis as soon as you make the second island. just gotta steal them from the heli tours :P
I've done that, but I'm talking about the first island. Of course, I don't think there's access to sniper rifles on the first island either, so I'm kind of shooting myself in the foot.
QuoteAs for the driving drunk.. i normaly took the helis for dates/hang outs, and you fly alot better then you drive, and the cops dont really chase you
Hmmm, that never occurred to me. Of course, I didn't hang with Brucie that much either :P.
Quote"THAT HOW WE ROLL! CUS WE ARE f***ing ALPHA!"
LULZ, you just had to reference Brucie, huh?
Do need to buy a 360...
Heh, I have to say, I love brucie, he is fun for an idiot :P Its your cousin I hate.
Well, Roman can be a bit of a bitch at times, but I would say that's how a typical person would act/react in the situations he and Niko find themselves in. Despite the depth Niko has, he seems superhuman next to a guy like Roman and Roman seems somehow more "authentic" as a result. He's also a good foil for people who would otherwise make, let's say "bad" decisions - kind of like a second conscience. I should also mention that his dealings with Niko remind me of how a real (albeit very dysfunctional) family functions, there's a lot going on there. Sure Brucie's funny, but he's also incredibly annoying, he's mostly just good fodder for some of Niko's funnier lines in the game.
"do i look like Ive got funny balls to you?"
yeah he is the whiny cousin im glad I never had ;p but from a war vets perspective, i think Niko is pretty belivable too, well minus the game rules ability to survive gunfire and carcrashes and and such, but personality wise, i think he is a real human character.
Well, I couldn't say I didn't find a good deal with which to identify with Niko, so we can pretty much agree on the fact that Niko is awesome. My favorite among Niko's friends is either Packie or Little Jacob, though. Packie because he's funny as hell and Irish American (like yours truly :P), and Little Jacob, well for many reasons, greatest among them probably being how he's always got Niko's back.
EDIT: Removed spoilerific details...
Niko Bellic: "Packie, my man. How are you and Gracie getting on?"
Patrick "Packie" McReary: " Like a house on fire, ain't that right gracie?"
Gracie Ancellotti: *through gag* "You fucking bastards."
Packie: "See, she was just telling me how much she loved me. What do ya think of Niko, Gracie?"
Gracie: *gagged* "I fuckin' hate the both of you!"
Packie: "Gracie, watch your mouth. Niko is a good friend of mine. Don't say that about him"
Gracie: *gagged* "Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you!"
Packie: "Gracie, you're sweet. I know I'm too good for him, but sometimes a guy has got to hang out with lowlifes like Niko here. He's got his uses"
Gracie: *gagged* "I'll give you some fucking uses!"
Packie: "That's right, he is definitely a bad influence on me."
Gracie: *gagged* "Motherfucker!"
The "fun in the showers" discussion was pretty damn hilarious too, but that one above made me spew horchata outta my nose.
heh, I was sold on packie the first time I crossed the street from his house and got hit by a cab, and he pulled out an AK and blasted the cab driver. now thats friendship.
anyhow, trying to steer this away from GTA4 discussion, one of my favorite games sequal is finaly out! FEAR 2 Project origin GET
Meh, I'm kinda burned out on FPS games, but SFIV was released yesterday! Too bad it'll probably be awhile before I get a chance to play it -__-.
EDIT: One last thing about GTA IV, Iggy Pop hosting classic rock station = WIN!
Oh, Yeah... F.E.A.R. r00lz, the whole series does... and i'm glad P/O is released for PC aswell, gotta get that one someday... (beter demo it first to see if i need a new videocad... ^_^)
Only a serious game you guys mentioned above...... need a really powerfull graphic card, especially GTA IV!
Have you played the strange ones....^.^
How about Schoolmate? AG3? or Hako -box-?
This sure is a unique games......^.^
Summon Night, Super Robo Taisen, Disgaea, Vagrant Story..... Chrono Cross.... What the Heck is SE doing? Why is THERE A CHRONO TRIGGER DS AND THERE'S NOTHING ABOUT CC? ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!
chrono trigger was way better then chrono cross anyways :p
RIGHT it is.....
Loved the intro to that game tho, Times Scar goes pretty high on my videogame music list for awesome songs
I have that....
I played both games but since I have played a lot of interesting games Chrono Trigger became same old same old for me, while Chrono Cross gave me a lot things to do... Same with Vagrant Story... the fact that we have no idea where Ashley Riot went makes me wonder.....
I presonaly thing the extra stuff made chrono cross less endering. You cant have a really compelling story if your characters could be differnt each play through. I like those old turn based RPGs, but I play them for the deep well written stories, and I feel those stories lack with proper depth without the set characters. If I want something I can play differently each time, I play a freeform RPG like oblivion or fallout 3.
Ah yes, both of those games go near the top of my list
Hehehe, I guess that's why I like crossovers so much.... I like extra things to do in whatever I play, Chocobo's Dungeon 2 made my happy caused it had me playing the EX part, and Bahamut Lagoon the same. Chrono Cross made you play multiple times to see everything. Thousand Arms had me try to get the most kisses on every girl, Super Robo Taisen gave me a hard time recruit sp characters like the super robot destroying Bonta-Kun and a lot more.... I guess I like thsoe complicated and weird games much...
today i bought final fantasy chronicles on amazon. :3
....? The GBA FF?
Isn't that on the PSP?
the PS1 version, the one released back when ps1 was still sold in stores. xD
it comes w/ FF4 and Chrono Trigger. :3 (prefered the latter)
PSX rules... ^_^ Still playing Metal Gear Solid...
Oh that one... I think I have that one...
Yeah, cool game, huh? There's not many games that can top that (unless we're looking at graphics, but that's not important... ^_^), and i'm a die hard PC-game fan...
I'VE GOTTEN SUPREME COMMANDER TO WORK AGAIN
PRAISE BE...ER...ME! PRAISE MYSELF FOR ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN! HUZZAH!
...self-theist, is that even a word? -w-;
Quote...self-theist, is that even a word? -w-;
Technically what you're referring to would be called autodeism
, but I guess if you build up a framework to worship yourself that would make it theistic
, ne :P? So yeah, be your own Personal Jesus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaVeyan_Satanism), noitch!
EDIT: Thought of more appropriate prefix... also, to keep this on topic - have you tried Twin Snakes, Smokey? I know there are a few fanboys that complain about it (changes in dialogue, cinematics, other silly stuff), but it's still the method I prefer when playing the first MGS. You do know there's a version of it for the PC as well, right?
Well, I'm not exactly worshiping myself...it's more like a Suzumiya complex.
The amount of times my thoughts seem to affect the world around me is scaring.
This weekend I was in my room, swinging around my Bokken for practice...and then started thinking about stuff, and the word "Destructive" pops up in my head, pretty clearly.
Seconds later I loose my grip on the Bokken, and it flies out of my hand into the wall.
There's a huge dent in that wall now. It wasn't a hard swing, but it still made like a 3cm hole in the damn wall.
This is getting fuckin' creepy.
We should probably move this discussion to Topicless (that is, if there is anymore to discuss after this post), but I too notice how my thoughts seem to have an odd effect on the world around me. Some days I'll just have a whole series of these odd coincidences. Think about some random movie I haven't seen in awhile and then see something about it on TV. Think about someone I haven't spoken to in forever and they wind up visiting/calling me. There's other things too, but those are the ones that just stand out in my mind. Anyway, I don't really place any kind of serious relevance on such events, but they can be fun (sometimes disturbing) to think about.
On topic, what's your (everyone in this thread) favorite god game? Right now mine is SimCity 2000, but that really shouldn't count because it's the only one I've played (I really want to try Black & White).
Well, if Overlord counts, that's my call. -w-
B&W (and I think there's a 2 too) seems pretty interesting. I might DL it and try. Post results hear. -w-
SimCity 4 with Rush hour... Real calm game, and fun too (also challenging...), with the micro- and macro management... Beats the crap out of B&W... IMO... ^_^
SPORE much, lawl?
Meh, SC4Deluxe is better... i think...probably...
Added after 16 seconds:
original sim city, the lo-res one. :]
(just wanted to say, nejin, that's f-ing cool. xD i lack a formal religion right now, so you're my religion now! xD lawl. jk. )
hmm, haven't played many god-complex games, come to think of it.
everyone, what's the oldest game you own?
i own an NES cartridge.....no NES though..... 0_0;
I own a NES and cartridges, but my brother's taken possession of it. 0_o
But that's probably Super Mario World for the Gameboy, then.
(And srsly choco, stop stalking me, you're ticking me off)
*sniffle* i'm sorry ;_; i didn't mean to.
oh yeah, i forgot about spore. i don't play it much since it's my sister's but it's nice. :3 (for some reason i prefer creating to actual gameplay.)
Isn't there a free demo of Creature Creator still available? Sounds like that'd be right up your alley, Choco.
Personally I find ravaging around in Creature mode and XENOCIDING EVERY SINGLE SPECIES ON THE PLANET more interesting. _W_
Does Game & Watches count? Because I got Parachute from 1981.
Had to plug in my NES here the other day and play a round of KUNG-FU(master). Such an awesome game. Interestingly, its made by IREM, before they started the R-Type series.
Wow, oldest game...
Gezus, if i'm not mistaken i even have 1 or 2 games for a '60s mainframe system... ;010
And as for current games, i'm more of a creator, hence my liking of SimCity, and The Sims2 (wich nowadays takes some 17 friggin installs to get it on your PC. Although it doesn't consume as much HDD as FSX deluxe, yet)
The oldest game I own is Wizardry: Knight of Diamonds from 1982, it's a game for the Apple IIe. I have the floppies and original cases for it and Bard's Tale I & II. Of course, I didn't get them when they were new - it was the first computer & software I ever owned and it was sometime in the 90s. Yeah, already old when I got it...
i have some racing game from 1985. it's older than me, AND my sister.
speaking of her, she has a pirated version of spore. yay torrents! yay friends! and she's a sims2 WHORE. O__O;
in other news, I GOT ME PACKAGE TODAY! =D YAY! I WANNA PLAY WITH IT (IT STILL HAS NEW GAME FEEL/SMELL AND IT'S FROM THE 90'S!! =D ) BUT HOUSE IS ON AND I HAVE WORK TO DO ANYWAY SO MAYBE TOMORROW OR LATER OR SOMETHING.
CHRONO TRIGGER YAY!! =D came sooner than i expected. <] always fun.
AND I'M MISSING IT!! STOP POSTING!! O_____O
Left 4 Dead
Metal Gear Solid
Sins of a solar empire
I'm usually like managerial game the most, though some genre like RPG does once in a while get into my favorite game.
The oldest game I have must have been Battle Isle and Carrier Command. If I'm not wrong, those two game come from the early 90's.
Quote from: "Smokey"House.... YEAH!
Dr. House is in the house ;010 . Always love that show.
Yeah, house rules... They should make a game of that; House, the Game... Howmuch of an ass can you be while still saving patients... ^_^
Nice Idea. Just hope it didn't screw up like ER the game ;015
Theme Hospital was a funny dr. themed game.
the House game would be a little hard, what's the plot?
i love chrono trigger. but i always die when i try to kill the stupid monkey. >:P
House the game...let's see; Be an ass to your colleagues, make sexually inapropriate remarks to female colleagues, use stereotypes, scare your patients half to death and cure your patients while being smug about it... Sounds nice... :D
Peta... ended up laying another SRT game... SRT K for the DS....
if they made house the game, they should do it on DS of Wii, so you can practice the "doctor's signature"!! xD
The oldest computer game I have is the original Macintosh port of Missile Command, released in 1984.
i think i heard of that. any good?
That particular version? It's pretty good though a bit too easy- I managed to rack up a high score in the 2 million range (only ending because my stamina was running out).
Also on my computer are two other Missile Command variants for the Macintosh but they are more challenging. The very first, original Missile Command version (for the Atari 2600, IIRC) is very VERY difficult though!
hmmm, all these obscure games. wish i could get my hands on a copy.
Just look on the internet... most of those games are abandonware now...
Abandonware is such a murky zone, though, especially with larger franchises. They are licensed compilations of Atari games if you're that interested. Of course, these games can't quite emulate the experience on a particular system (nothing beats the feel of an arcade cabinet, and by the same token nothing is quite like when you play a game on an old floppy system). In any case, I own a copy of Atari Anniversary Collection for the PC, not only does it have the awesome games (including Missile Command), there's also a font and wallpapers.
Cool, and indeed Abandonware is a bit of a gray zone (like anime in holland, but i don't mind, i'll keep downloading the stuff thats not licensed here according to the anime store :D) but i'm happy one of my fav games has been explicitly GPLed; Warzone2100... ;010
mmm....i got namco musem and DK64, which has 2 oldy games.
Speaking of old games I recently played Madou Monogatari for the SNES and the other for the Genesis....
wanted to play the old tetris for the gameboy, but both my GBC and GBA refused to work...
Added after 2 minutes:
Yay, they work again... apparently only on 1.2volt rechargables...
Added after 9 minutes:
And i game-over'd horribly due to my tactics...
What you lost on tetris? that usually happens to me only when the speed becomes too ridiculous...
Tetris is overrated. -.-
Well i always build up the screen and keep the uttermost richt block free, so i can rack in the big points by slotting in those 1x4 bars there...
Problem is those bars don't come that often...
my sis loves tetris, and she's damn good at it. i think she got to level 32 (or some ridiculous number like that) once.
i suck at it. but i like the techno remix of the theme song. :3
LOL, i saw a video of a world cup tetris finale once, those guys reach levels over 99 (haha, DBZ pun opportunity) and play at inhuman speed...
recently my friend said something rather funny:
"there's a reason that women are good at tetris. tetris was made for women."
"wat's that say about mee!?"
Exception confirming the rule, dear choco, exception confirming the rule... ^_^
Tetris, this game really remind me of the good old days. Yes the days when my big sis, lil sis and even my mom completely obliterate me in game. And they still crush me to date. Man, they really are good at tetris.
Well, the rules is not absolute though. I've already met and get challenged by a girl who's sucks (hard) at tetris but she completely crush me in RTS game.
i suck at it. indefinitley. (my uncle's pretty good.)
ehh, i'm more male than female, yet i am physically a girl. (i have the brain of a bisexual man! with a slight bit of feminine in there. and some pavlovian stuff, and some programming, and maybe some chewing gum holding the hard drive in, and it's all running dual boot on windows ME and 2000. yay!
and i have an odd mothering instinct in overdrive. yet i'm probably the youngest one here.)
that was so off topic i don't know where to begin.
hmmmmm...........think, think........ >_____<
oh i know! virtual blackjack! i've been playing that for awhile. <3
and i've been playing the .hack series for awhile too. <3333
Had a cool blackjack game once, was one of the two reasons i kept a 8088XT... ^_^
lulz, i'm not even legal yet and i already have a gambling problem. xD
thousand arms has a blackjack minigame, 2 versions of it. xD
i'm ok at it, it's when you get 16s or 17s that it sucks. :[
well, as long as you don't piss away your entire income... ^_^
And seventeens do indeed suck, unless the bank has to hold on 17, in that case it sucks just a tiny bit less... ^_^

I do the same shit in any game that has gambling mini-games. I'm a cheat though, if lose my shit, I just re-load the damn game, unless it's video poker on Scarface or GTA:SA, because I'm usually good enough to get my money back.
btw as much as I like video blackjack (been playing such minigames since Bard's Tale for Apple IIe), video poker kicks video blackjack's ass. Way more money, too.
I'm not in it for the money... ^_^
BTW in GTA:SA i always go to that bar near the big ear to play a game of pool... much more fun ^_^
hm... Well I'd have to say my favorite game of all time is Brave Fencer Musashi(the original) following close behind is Wild Arms, Makai kingdom and Rouge Galaxy
i've heard of wild arms, any good?
idk how to play poker. :[
well, if you try various poker games on your PC, you can learn how to (without losing the money) with the often supplied tutorials and help files... ^_^
Video Poker is the same as 5-Card Draw, which is simple really. The game I play is "Jacks or Better" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_Poker#Jacks_or_Better), see, it's pretty simple - and addictive.
Explanation of terms:
Jacks or Better - any pair of face cards
Two Pair - self-explanatory
Three of a Kind - self-explanatory
Straight - any set of cards in a series (e.g. Ace,2,3,4,5 or 10,Jack,Queen,King,Ace)
Flush - all cards of the same suit (Diamonds, Spades, etc.)
Full House - a pair and three of a kind
Four of a Kind - self-explanatory
Straight Flush - a series of cards with the same suit
Royal Flush - a 10,Jack,Queen,King,Ace series with the same suit
thanks for clearing that up, never did new what order it was supposed to be in ^_^
Same goes for all sorts of poker, right? (cuz i discovered a nice hold-em game in my Vista updates...)
Basically, but it's a little more complicated. You see, since you'll be playing against others now, they'll be counting exactly what it is you have. You won't just have a straight, it'll be either high or low. Face cards are even more important because they now carry an inherent value (that is, if you have a shitty hand, just having an "Ace in the hole" can help greatly (well, only if the other players also have equally shitty hands). Still, the basic hierarchy is the same, it's basically based on the rarity of the hands. The less likely a hand is to get, the higher value it carries.
Yeah, i know, i saw the A.I. bet high on just a facecard they had, while i was milking them with a flush, or straight, or Ace two pair...
Skiing weeks are CARDGAMES HELL for my family...I've been playing so much Chicago I can't count to New York anymore >_>
silly nejin, trix are for kids! =D
eh, idk if i could remember all that. maybe, but nawt rite nao cuz im sick. :[
i remember the first time i played kings in the corner i won the first round. ^__^
Eh, we all do have a kid soul in heart. If not, why else we still playing game even now ;010
cause we win monehs? o____o
Boredom & laziness.
and monehs? o____o
Nwah, we just pay monehs fo' eet.
(or at least, YOU do _W_)
guys... we're slowly derailing here...
BTW have i mentioned that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl is also one of my favorite games?
It just gets to you... Especially when i've played it for a while and walk the dog afterwards (late evening)... still got the whole atmosphere when i'm outside then... ^_^
Quote from: "Smokey"guys... we're slowly derailing here...
Have you looked at the forum lately? It's one of those
days Â¬__Â¬. Still nothing in the H-section - the one place that could really use a shot in the arm.
On topic, San Andreas is easily, easily
becoming one of my favorite games. There's just so much to do, and the radio is still the funniest damn thing (GTA4's radio didn't quite live up to the earlier ones in terms of writing). Anyway, it's awesome - I'm a little worried about going back to Scarface now...
yep... GTA:SA is my favorite GTA game...
Ever since GTA3, one of my main reasons for playing the game is to hear Lazlow, but somehow that seems very backwards O__o?
Meh usually listen to K-DST and K-rose...
Currently I am on a PokÃ©mon streak.
After those 2Â½ days of Red, I felt it was time to get a bit more high-tech, so here I am, emulating the freshly released Platinum (DS) on DELTA...pretty amazing, considering the difficulty of DS emulation.
Anyone up for starting a pokemon thread? In any case, I am.
Here we go... Pokemans fandom (http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i81/Jinxxeh/Cats/3yhaomq.jpg?t=1240181874)
Quote from: "Smokey"Meh usually listen to K-DST and K-rose...
The only stations I don't
listen to are SF-UR and CSR. My favorite generally varies depending on my mood, but usually I listen to K-DST, K-ROSE, K-JAH, WCTR, and RADIO X.
The DST has a great song; Horse with no name... ^_^ and generally good music...
Seriously, why the hell does a game include radio stations?
Seeing the impact it's had, it was a good move, but what is the damn purpose? Realism? It seems a bit "meh" to me...
Yeah, classic song by America - great to listen to when you're truckin'. What I don't understand is how the hell Rod Stewart is on there... it's a classic rock station, WTH?! A personal fave of mine on that station is Green River by CCR. Creedence is another favorite band of mine, FYI.

and it can be incredibly dull driving around for hours with nothing to listen to - much like real life. A lot of games have used popular music before, but I much prefer the radio station approach in GTA.
yep, the game is more fun that way... i always look out for a ride with a radio when i'm out there... most like Trucks (fo'hitchin' up a trailer and go truckin') and dirtbikes (has radio and is capable of off-road fun..
Who knows, next thing they'll be implementing MP3 players in FPS games... >_>
Meh, not really necessary - it's not like there's long stretches of "Gawd, this is a long fucking trip" when you're playing an FPS. Fast, twitch-based gameplay, so there's no real need for distraction, but I have known people who listen to music while they play FPS games.
Might come in handy while playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R., although i have a guitar and a hand radio in my stash... just cant use them (probably the developers didn't have time for that...)
Dam, sometimes the walks in that game get looooong...
wants play nijikaku, but M.U.G.E.N. error :[
besides, if i win this contest, $500 WORTH OF FREE MANGA O_____O
final fantasy 7 series, metal gear solid series, and i cannot wait til ff13 comes out!
i love the gran turismo series, and alot of different first person shooters.
insurgency being one of them, battlefield2 though thats a bit outdated, i really want to play metal gear online.
honestly, ik ff is an epic series, but when will it end? it's like the NOW cd's. they're up to 32 now, it's getting kind of sad.
FF series are never going to end, as its reached the status "holy cow of squeenix".
Which they will milk for money, lots of money, as the rabid fanbase is completely obliged to cash out all their money for "auto-play games" of bishies covered in zippers.
And that is the reason why slowly but surely I don't like FF games again.
Hmmm....did anyone here like to play Shmup Manic Shooter? Among all the genre, this genre I like and play the most.
My all time favourite games of this genre is Trigger Heart Exelica and DoDonPachi Dai Ou Jou.
Simulation - Capitalism II and Simcity 2000
Strategy - Ufo X-com and Jagged Alliance II
RPG - Atalier Series
Most of these:
this one's fun:
THAT'S RIGHT. THE GRANDDADDY OF ALL VIDEO GAMES. >:3
I actually played that some years ago, on an original 70's arcade machine that was linked to a videoprojector. Shit was rad.
It's funny. Even though it's an ancient game, I find myself playing TONS of BZFlag. It helps that there is a really active community and always at least 5 or six servers with slots available all the time.
I think my favorite games is the Ar Tonelico Series.It has a good graphics and a good story too.But it takes hours to finish it,especially the second one.It has multiple endings,like a Visual Novel,but it's a RPG game with VN elements in it.A good combination i think.
Still,it's hard to get all of the endings... T_T
I love to play NFS Now I am NFS Shift I have finished all the previous one lol
Right, you do that.
Added after 1 minutes:
In other news, I stayed up until 5AM playing Total Annihilation tonight.
on the same note, i love me some supreme commander
My favorite game of all time has to be LoZ: A Link to the Past.
My favorite games are
Call of Duty-4
Left 4 Dead
Gears of War.
SupCom 1 and 2 <--- TURTLING!!!
Rome: Total war <---- Romans pwn
Empire: Total war <---- Romans with gunpowder! :D
Left for dead 1 <---- PEEELZ HERE!
Homeworld 2 <---- Awesome space RTS, I really reccomend it.
Halo: CE <---- First console game i played.
Audiosurf <---- (addicted)
Age of Mythology <---- An awesome RTS with a few years on it's back, still good though.
Overlord 1 and 2 <---- Minions pwn teh feck out of everything!
As you can see, im mostly a strategy gamer ^_^
Supcom 1: AEON NAVY.
Supcom 2: illuminate HAS no navy FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK ;_;
Total Annihilation: Still rules supreme, no question.
Overlord: Liek for the title, haven't tried the sequel.
Nejin, you should really try overlord 1 and 2, they are awesome.
Aaaww D: I wish i had TA D:
Supcom 2 no aeon navy was a knife in the back yes, but cybran navy being able to walk on land was awesome.
Quote from: "AMDKurt"
Halo: CE <---- First console game i played.
Regardless, I have a lot of "favorite games." One of which is most def Xenogears.
On the PC platform, I guess I'd go with the UT series.
But cybran navy was always amphibious...partly at least.
And most of all I can NOT forgive the resource flow concept's removal. That's what made TA and SupCom/FA the games they were! It's so annoying, trying to plan ahead and then "woops, you don't have that many resources" and "woops, you haven't RESEARCHED THAT SHIT" which makes me insane. I mean, I usually enjoy research elements in RTS and TBS (mostly TBS though), but SupCom2 really fails at it. The lack of T1->T2->T3->EX tech tree is precisely why we can't have nice things.
SupCom2 engine + FA units and system = TOTAL WINNAGE, imo.
And like I said - Overlord charmed me with its title, so I tried it. 'twas enjoyable, but I never got around to finishing it. The sequel didn't quite get the good parts of reviewing, so I skipped out on it...might try it sometime, though.
And ANYONE who hasn't got a copy of TA should just learn2throw off your foolhardy mental shackles and TORRENT IT, IT'S ABANDONWARE ANYWAY SO WHAT GIVES. >_<
Personally I go with the Twilight modpack.
I have to agree that planning building is piss annoying, but that leave you to more micro-managing, wich is annoying but it's good if you want to get better at RTS'es, like starcraft, micro all the way. I wanted the tech's though, just like you say. I get really bored with the few units you have, like 1 battleship, 1 sub, 1 cruiser and 1 destroyer -_- Im also mighty pissed on how they buttraped the cybran units, no big ass spiderbots, no sweeping lasers instead they get tiny feckin walkers only good in swarms. Supcom 1 with some graphical feutures from supcom 2 would be awesome, like underwater wreckages and stuff (there are mods for that though)
Agreed. And modding capability in general...SUPCOM2 HAS NONE ;___;
WHAAAT!?? T____T No mods? D: Well SupCom 2 was a good game, it was fun to play if you could stand the micro, the crappy rescource and research system, but supcom 1 was way better. I mean i played supcom 1 with a broken arm when i first got it on releaseday. No such memories in supcom 2 T___T
