I have to say one of my favourite NES games was Excitebike! I loved that game (actually I still do)

I haven't played Monkey Island four either. Well I think we rented a PS2 one and rented it as well. But that's the last time. It's a hard game to find for the PC.

I forgot to mention Hogs of War!! Such a funny game and actually a lot more difficult than what you'd think.

Another great series is the Sarge's Heroes one. I always thought they were so innovative and so much fun. I really enjoy different gaming as well, like Harvest Moon.

I've only ever played Harvest Moon: Back To Nature on the PSone but I loved it. Though I gotta admit the whole taking care of 20 sheep/cows brushing them all, talking to them thing got very tedious. Especially as you couldn't run through them like you could the chickens so if you were in the barn it used to take me 10 minutes to cross the room. And if you hired the harvest sprites you had to give them something every day or they hated you but just as you'd lined up to hand them your last bottle of wine they move and you end up smashing it on the floor.

But nonetheless it was a great game, really addictive.

The graphics are outstanding, the sound and voice acting is top notch, and the level design is awesome - often almost exact replicas of the actual locations in France, and scripted to follow the actual flow of the actual battles.

I highly, highly recommend it. It does require patience, as you will die often.

I think there's another one in the series coming out soon, too. I can't wait!
Have you tried the games from Battlefront.com?

They are the chess games of military strategy with decent graphics for their style of play.

I saw a commercial recently for the new Brothers In Arms. It's a pity they don't have it on the Gamecube, as it looks like a game I would enjoy.

I think I've played a demo of it. The games mag described the demo as spooky because everything looks normal but you just know something's about to change...the suspense!!

Er, yeah. After 10 minutes of nothing happening (is this what passes for suspense these days?) and me seemingly not being able to do anything (remember when games' mags used to actually print the controls to demo games???) despite pressing every button available, I turned it off.

But for a fairer summary perhaps this would help?

From the looks of things I must have played Silent Hill 4: The Room.

F.E.A.R.

I have just started playing it, OMFG it is the most frightening game I have ever played and the best bloody FPS I have played in a good long while. On par with System Shock 2, but much more scary.

This holidays I am gearing up to get back to my roots a bit, after two years of actually going out and doing real things its back to playing some video games and going to LAN parties (at least some of the time).

I was just perusing some of my old PC gamers (I have a deck going back to 1996 of various PC mags) and I saw a wargasm preview in there.

I've been playing 007 Everything Or Nothing again lately. At first, I didn't care for it.. being third person and all, but once you get into it.. it's really quite cool. Tons of levels too. The thing I'd wish they'd do with these third person games that used to be first, is have an option to play it in first person as well as third.

A quick prediction for the next gen console games:

Nintendo next gen:

Link XXIIII
Mario Bros. Now in 4D!!
Mario Kart V
Pokemon Teal edition!
A Donkey Kong Spin-off which is just down-right bizarre.
Various 'updated' versions of SNES classics like F-Zero that are somehow identical to the originals but with better grpahics and ruined gameplay.


PS3:

Another hackneyed shoot-em-up/stealth-em-up concept. (x500)
Another FF with hours of cutscenes/character dialogue voiced by the most inappropriate people possible.
Latest sports games with identical gameplay but updated teams.
One decent and original game that won't be advertised and will never see the light of day again because 'it isn't what sells'.

X-Box next gen:

Identical games to the PS3 but with better graphics.


A note on the 'next gen' console names. My research was obviously exhaustive and knowledge unsurpassible (feed off the sarcasm people).

Yeah, I know cynicism isn't good for me but I just feel like no-one's trying anymore! The only remotely original games these days seem to come out on PCs which is fair enough. But PC games always seem to have bugs, need patches and within a year the top-of-the-range computer that you just paid the Earth for becomes unable to play the latest releases anyway! (I'm exaggerating I do that when I'm annoyed.)

I agree that noone seems to be trying anymore... Nintendo has been doing nothing but rehashing old games, and they've maybe had 4 or 5 games with the GC that were original concepts, coupled with good execution... the rest of them were remakes, or ass.

The PS3 and XBox 360 are, I think, going to kick nintendos ass. Which makes me sad, because Nintendo has always been my hands down favourite. But, the games are going to be better, have better playability, and since XBox has already breached the 'online consoles' market, Nintendo is now going to have to find a way to make up for lost ground... and I don't think they're going to be able to do it.

Kinda sad, though, that people can't even be arsed to go across town to visit their friends, drink a case of Dr. Pepper, eat 4 bags of doritos, and stay up all night gaming... they have to sit at home and connect remotely for it. Where's the fun in that? You can't run interference on people's views of the screen or anything. Lame
