    Real men play games that are at LEAST a decade old. Did anybody ever play those old Sierra Quest for Glory games? "So you want to be a hero" "Trial by fire" etc. My God those were great. Not to mention roguelikes! I'm still addicted to Nethack and Moria. I also love online textbased RPGs, like The Two Towers at Angband.com. That game has such a great history. People still hold five year old grudges between clans, etc. I love it
    I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

    Windows XP consists of 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

    >who here plays UT?
    and who is gona buy UNREAL2<
    No

    >and who thinks counterstrike is a good game( it suxs )<
    Okay graphics for today, but not decent. BTW, it is Half Life: Counterstrike. Counterstrike alone is not a game.

    >diablo2 (it suxs like hell, so slow)<
    Yes

    >who here play TURN BASED STRADEGY games<
    Civ II, SMAC, ...

    I never said it was turn-based. I said that's what I'm playing now.

    hmmm....

    I used to play infantry for at least 4 hours evry day (sometimes 9) since i first downloaded it. But now you have to pay 7$ a month for it so....

    I went and bought Delta Force: Land Warrior.

    >>TURN BASED STRADeGY games

    Yep, that's my kind of game. Civ, Panzer General etc. Besides, there is no other strategy than turn based. All that real-time stuff is not strategy. You don't have the strategic choice. It's all about building a whole mass of troops and applying the steamroller tactics, because the computer will always outmanouever you in a one on one because you only have one mouse at your command.
    I also like turn based tactical games like FallOut Tactics, Jagged Alliance or Ufo/X-Com.

    >who thinks counterstrike is a good game

    Me. I like the new 1.4 version. No more Nike-Bunnies jumping all over the place.


    >Final Fantasy Legend on GameBoy

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh hh.... Part I and II...
    wasn't that more of a roleplaying game though ?

    >Nethack

    Oh no, don't get me started on these stuff... simple and ugly, but soooo addicting... I saw a windows version for download recently...
    hth
    -nv

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Hey hey, ok, maybe CS is not all that great (expecially with their latest release 1.4, they should all die) but Lets give half-life some credit here. That game was amazing, its whole story was great. and for comming out in 98 and being the main structure for CS its still kicking ass. Has anyone looked at the code for that?? AI is amazing!!..

    also, Blizzard, i liked all of their games, how could anyone not like Starcraft. D2, i played it for a while. but it takes ages to get anywhere or to find anything good to use, i usually ended up going to town and buying a better weapon then finding one, lol.

    But lets hold on a sec here, Fallout takes the cake for RPGs.. Story... kickass... Love the whole post-apocaliptic feel it had, it would be so cool to live after the bombs fell.. and the 50's intro's, LOL... funny as hell... loved all 3. But Fallout and Fallout 2 were the best, they had a kickass story.

    Quake III is sooo much better than Unreal Tournament. Every non-moron knows this.

    Doom 3 is going to be superior, in every way,
    to Unreal 2.

    Unreal Tournament 2003 looks good, but if it's
    anything like the first UT, it's going to suck.
    Staying away from General.

    If you like strategy... try the Commandos series..
    It's amazing, the level designers must have been geniuses, a lot of thought was put into that game... and it shows.

    Diablo II, the expansion set ruined it. Period. I'm not saying it couldn't have been good, but like I think Aran said... it wasn't balanced. The economy was a major screw up... it was based on certain items, which were very easy to come across (plus all the duping) instead of gold and trading. Experience was too easy to come across in the expansion (you could be level 80+ in less than a week. Hell, I read a story about a guy who got to level 99, 4 days after a ladder reset) if they made the monsters harder... then making friends and teaming up is another factor which would have enriched the gameplay.

    I found Wolfenstein multiplayer extremely fun... Counter-Strike was good for awhile, but it just got too redundant. Medal of Honor may turn out to be good... I'm buying it this weekend. Anyone play it yet?

    regarding diablo 2:

    here's why i stopped playing:
    1. Blizzard added 2 new classes and made three classes relatively worthless.
    2. The economy consisted of SOJs.
    3. Koreans (no offense, but the Koreans on US West were the most annoying people ever)
    4. Rampant PKing in hardcore mode (AGH!)
    5. The game was sending me on the fast lane to carpel tunnell with its click and kill madness.
    6. Too many scamming -expletive-s
    7. Goddamn dupers.
    8. A playerbase that sucked.
    9. Unreliable servers
    10. bugs, bugs, bugs.

    the lesson: DON'T PLAY D2 IF YOU WANT YOUR SANITY/LIFE.
