    what games are you playing currently?

    Hi ppl

    I'm a bit bored w/ all the texts to read and those exercises to get finished. Think its time for some refreshments.

    So, do you guys here play games?

    I'm thinking of replaying Myst 3 : Exile, I finished for the first time more than a year ago.

    So what games are you ppl playing these days?

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    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.

    I love oldies:

    Prehistorik

    SimCity

    Atomic Bomberman - some bugs but great game though

    Warkraft - old but nice!

    Simon the Sorcerer - it makes me laugh (warning - some art of canadian humor inside not appreciated by everybody)

    Starkraft - great when played in teams!

    I'm not playing any games atm, but I do play ROMS whenever I can, and other stuff you can play on emulators. I play rpgs only, I'm really big into the whole fantasy thing. Hate futuristic rpgs though.

    I'm playing all the Tomb Raiders as I'm in the process of buying every one ever released for the PC, retail box and all(triangle box, if it applies). Other than that, I'm similar to SourceCode. I play mostly ROMs and emulators. I, however, like a wider category of game styles.

    Bubble Bobble Series
    Altered Beast
    Mortal Kombat Series
    Street Fighter Series
    Bang Bang Ball
    Battle Toads
    Double Dragon
    Killer Instinct
    Primal Rage
    all the Super Hero VS Street Fighter Games

    NES:
    Mega Man Series
    Castlevania Series
    Ninja Gaiden Series
    RBI Baseball

    SNES:
    Mario World
    Bomberman

    Genesis:
    Sonic
    Mega Man: The Wily Wars

    Nintendo 64:
    Mario
    Rush
    F-Zero
    Killer Instinct Gold

    Atari 2600:
    Missle Command
    Defender
    Yars Revenge
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I haven't played any games in a while. I basically have nothing really to do for the summer, so I might dig up Starcraft and Diablo II; get good enough, maybe play battle.net...
