Gamers Zone

I just thought I'd start a thread for all the video gamers , I know you're out there. Discuss your favourite games, or ones you've rented and what you thought.. or what ones you totally despise. What's your fav system and all that jazz?

The first system I played on was the Intellivision.. I still love it. Those games were alot of fun, and quite challenging.

We just recently rented NHL 06 and Medal of Honor European Assault.

NHL 06 was okay, although I still prefer 04. I like the adding of the goal replays at the end of the game. But they've the same announcers, and some of the same lines. The fight engine is quite strange.. you can't seem to block it in which makes it less fun. The buttons were a bit strange. Z +Y and such.. though you could likely switch them around to how to like them.
All in all, it was okay...

MOH: European Assault was great. Unlike when we rented Rising Sun, I didn't beat it during the rental period.. and I was very impressed with the multiplayer. It's not quite as good as MOH Frontline.. but it's almost there.

--
Question of the day

What system are you most looking forward to?

Nintendo Revolution
XBOX 360
PS3

Turbograffix 16..... Just kidding!

I also think NHL06 is a little weak, but it is an improvement. In terms of visual realism, it's eons above NHL04. I like that when a player gets hit in the leg by a puck, he actually hobbles around a little afterwards. I also like that you can't sit on the speed burst button endlessly. But the commentary sucks, as usual...thank goodness they did improve it slightly, though - they actually give random little facts about certain players and coaches. Controls suck, especially since I'm running it on a laptop. (I'd get a controller, but I'm lazy and have no money). The menu music is AWFUL. I had to change all of it. And I also changed the intro music for when the teams hits the ice - Streets, naturally. Unfortunately, I didn't mix enough crowd volume into it so the atmosphere sucks...and I corrupted the sound file so I can't edit it again.

As for other games, I only like old school PC games. Age of Empires.

EDIT: One more thing about NHL06; the e-mail system in Dynasty Mode is SO much better than in NHL04. I signed Peter Bondra to the Habs for the hell of it, and he wasn't playing that well...I kept shuffling him in the lines to see if he would work. It didn't help much. The game practically read my mind, because he soon sent me an e-mail begging to be kept on the team as he believed he could improve! I laughed so hard.

Can't go wrong with older games for sure. Any fans of Monkey Island here? Such a funny series!

Guybrush is my hero

My favorite games ever are probably:

Age Of Empires 2 (PC)
Battlefield 1942 (PC)
Terranigma (SNES)
Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)
Shenmue (Sega Dreamcast)
Championship Manager 01/02 (PC)
Final Fantasy 9 (PS1)

Although this list changes every now and again

Unfortunately though I haven't played anything in ages, not enough time

I LOVE Monkey Island but have only played 3 and 4 (Preferred 3, Guybrush was so annoying to control in 4). What about other LucasArts games, like Grim Fandango?
I'm a big fan of point and click, especially the Broken Sword series.

Fav console? Well, NES was the first one I owned (Mario Bros 3 is the best game ever as far as I'm concerned), the Speccy had a really wide variety of gaming genres, and of-course the PS took gaming in whole new directions, the SNES was so colourful and had Mario Kart, the PS2 had/has amazing potential (but few games seem to be really making use of it in my opinion. For every MoH frontline there's ten games that are identical to PS ones but with better graphics) the PC had all the best strategy games... aw, they were all great in their own way.

Fantastic thread thanx for creating it.

I liked Far Cry and Deus Ex too. Prince of Persia 1 and 2 were fun too. Along with Unreal Tournament.

No way. Nothing beat playing multiplayer Goldeneye on N64. That was without a doubt the best game.

edit: I missed the words "I've ever played". Oh well. Goldeneye was awesome.

Atari 2600 was the first system I played on.

I did love the games on Intellivision too.

When the first Nintendo system came out it came with Super Mario Brother, Duck Hunt and the gun. My dad and I would play both for hours!

We had a shit load of games for the Commodore 64. A few of my favortites were Pirates, Legacy of the Ancients, and the Bards Tale series.

After that I went to PC. If I wanted my console system fix I'd just go to my friends house and play on one of his systems

PC games. Star Control 2 was a pretty fun game. Back in 2002 the code was released to public and a group of people took it made it playable on today's systems. Look for Urquan Masters, free download.

My recent favorites are Warcraft 3, Starcraft, World of Warcraft and City of Heroes.

Donkey Kong for Super Nintendo is my favorite video game EVER!

Although I do like Sly Cooper and all the Rathcet&Clank games for PS2.
