I reckon I lost about a year and a half of my life courtesy of Diablo 2... curses to you Blizzard, I want that back! :P

Fallout 2 is an absolute gem, BG1+2, Morrowind, Black & White 1+2.

But what about the classics! Don't forget them, I know other people out there lost time playing things like Doom and Wolfenstein 3D :D

I wish I had time to play other games though, I have my trusty PSP and GTA Liberty City which keeps me occupied on the train to work, but that's about it now!

I am such a geek. Ack.

:shock:

You can get High res clasic Doom now, I play that on occasion. Did anyof you play Blood? its the best FPS ever, download it now its freeware, there is a winblood project to update it that I am watching.

Fallout 2 still consumes much of my life, the modding scene I am part of has some very good mods, EPA,Primitive tribe and abbey location cut from the game are now availerble to play. I proof read alot of translated russian mods.

KOTOR 2 was a bit of a disapointment, they rushed it out. It could have been alot better. Still a good game though.

I love games, and computer games are part of that. My love of games is exactly why I do sport infact.

I remember the first computer games I played. Chuckie egg and dread dragon doom on the Acorn Electron at my primary school.

I soon developed a taste for pretty scenery and games that were like my other hobby of Dungeons and Dragons.

I think some of the games that I've most enjoyed have been. Mario Kart, Final fantasy 7,8,9, and the amazing 'Torment'

Just now I play World of Warcraft, Where I play a crazee demon loving Warlock (who's nice really). I've made quite a few friends by playing it infact. One of the guys is coming over from Finland this weekend.

I'm not quite a game geek though. I never get so into it that I know everything about the game etc. I just enjoy it and will remain a Noob.

Mario Kart kicked ass on snes and N64, Final fantasy is the worst peice of shit rpg ever. Do you meab Planescape 'Torment', the game has been given an award as a piece of modern art, which it is. One of the best games ever.

My bro is on World of Warcraft, he plays a minimun of 12 hours a day, it has stolen his life. I am not a fan of the kiddy graphics, I like to see blood and gore when I hack peeps to death.

its okay to be a Noob but not a newb there is a differenece.

I haven't played any games for a number of years...just not enough spare time!!

I was a Blizzard junkie...Diablo, Starcraft, D2, Warcraft III... I'm afraid to pick up WoW...worst thing that could happen is someone giving me a copy. ;)

These days Sudoku is enough for me!

I actually installed Descent2 last week, loved that game. Played Unreal and UT quite a bit, it was my favorite 'shooter'. Oh, and going waaay back, X-Wing vs Tie...that was the bomb.

Sudoku is realy trendy, all the kids are playing that.

Games we will never see, warning some are quite offensive:

You're not missing out on much. It's way too easy.
I'm starting to get really sick of WW2 games. Always this USA propaganda. USA saved the world my ass. As soon as they took over the germans they put some other fascists in their place. They cracked down all the socialist parties that started arising all over europe. Well I'm gonna shut up now, going off topic abit.

Anyways used to play Unreal Tournament every day for years. Haven't' played it for ages. I'm gonna install it again. :p

Anyone who likes Red Alert 2?

I used to play that alot, I am still waiting for number 2 although I doubt it will happen for a few more years. I got pissed of playing against haters constantley flaming. I had a clan for that as well.

There is a shit hot SC2 rebuild for C&C generals being made by a russian team, cant wait for that.

I am looking for a new game to play now, Titan Quest got boring. I need a real RPG. No one seems to make them anymore. I think I will give NWN2 a go.
