    Gamers: what are you playing these days?

    Hey guys, I'm interested in what you are into game wise these days? Which game and on what platform takes up the most of your time?

    Another question would be: which game have you spent the most time playing ever?

    Personally I'm still playing Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer whenever I have some free time... other then that I'm replaying Arcanum as a "bad" guy; both PC.

    At my girlfriend's brother in law house I usually play Madden 2004 on PS2. He recently also got Manhunt, unfortunately the game is really bad, I had higher expectations for it. The controls and interface is horrible, and I really don't like the game play.

    The best game that I have ever played, and consequently replayed it many times would be Fallout 2....if you've never played it, you can probably get it for about $15 now.

    I'm playing Madden 2004 on my PC. I've had it for about 2 months and I've already played 4 full seasons. I'm hooked. I can't stop playing. And I'm more of a FPS gamer. I like Splinter Cell and Half Life and Unreal Tournament.

    I'm not much into the season mode, but that is probably do to the lack of time. The guy that owns the game also plays the franchise mode with full length games!

    I currently play with 6 minute quarters, and I have to pretty much set aside an hour to play that. I don't know how he has time to play full games.

    well all he does is work and play....not very healthy if you ask me...but he could sit and play madden for 10 hours straight. Whats really funny thoug is that he is not that good.I play maybe once a week and I win about half the games we play together.

    I think you would pretty much have to suck to play that long. I'm on the third difficulty level, and I'm easily scoring 30 points or more in a full game. If I would play full games, I'd probably average around 100 pts./game. That would get boring.

    I've completed almost 3 seasons of Madden 2004. I'm also on the 3rd season of 2 separate leagues in NCAA Football 2004 for the PS2. TCU's going to a BCS game in my world, baby!

    I can't wait until World Of Warcraft. It looks like the best game of all time. Until then, Starcraft (5+ years old!!!), Diablo 1 and 2, and Warcraft 3/FT keep me busy (all by same company) .
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    I've not played the expantion, but warcraft 3 really wasn't that great. I mean, I beat the game at the hardest level in less then a week...it was very simplistic....I still revisit startcraft though, mostly online.
