Gears of War next week for XBOX360! I'm really excited for this. Some of the best graphics ever seen (real-time!). Call of Duty 3 comes out next week too. I'm semi-excited for this, but WWII has been overused a lot, and it's a little arcadey in terms of gameplay. Also, Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway is coming out within the next year, which looks awesome, as well. And, who could forget the lovely Crysis. Destructable environments, and cool physics should make it the best FPS when it comes out. Look at this side-by-side comparison of real-life pictures and ingame shots: http://incrysis.com/crysis/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=169&Itemid=2 What's everyone excited for? :)

I saw that Medieval II is coming out. That's the beginning and end of my list :)

Medieval II looks amazing. Medieval was sorely in need of an update but it in itself is still a heck of a game and fun to play.

I'll definitely be getting Medieval 2.

After that my next big game will probably be Spore...if it ever does get released.

Oh yeah, that too. I just hope it's not a big let down like most games that I'm looking forward to but don't know much about. I know Medieval'll be great, because all 3 of the previous games have been great.

Then again, Will Wright's making Spore, so I should be pretty confident in that kicking ass, too.

Grand Theft Auto 8 years ago! Yay!

One good side of me is that I don't get addicted to any game, sometimes I play some games, but I never spend more than half an hour to it (when I'm very confused and need something relaxing).

I pretty much hate all those new fancy games with mega-graphics. I play Trackmania Nations - a free and simple racing game.

And I want no updates or new versions of it. (maybe a bit more comfortable level editor...)

So you hate new games, but you also hate games that are pre-Win 95? You're kind of limiting youself for no reason, here.

Did I say that? I said I like some old games. Recently I even played one cool DOS game, but when I uninstalled my Win98, then I couldn't play it any more :(

I like relaxing games (and funny games) and not those ultra-silly action and shooting games.

You said
Well, I also play some old games like Dungeon Keeper and Age of Empires sometimes, but they were at least released after Windows 95.
So, what have we learned from this
Old games = bad
New games = bad
Action games = bad
Shooting games = bad
GTA = good?

No-no, you got it wrong:

Stressing games = bad
Relaxing games = good
Old games = depends on the game
New games = usually boring (like that GTA:SA)

Twilight Princess is supposed to be amazing.



If Twilight Princess manages to uphold the level of quality seen in its opening hours for the entire duration of the adventure, it will unquestionably go down as one of the greats. Imagine Ocarina of Time, but polished and expanded and refined and generally perfected: that's what Twilight Princess feels like so far.

We still have a long way to go through Link's latest odyssey, and we'll be posting further details about the game over the coming weeks, all to whet your appetite for the game's November 19th release date. Having seen what we have, we're confident that the payoff will be worth the wa

I already pre-ordered my Gears of War order so that's no thing. I can't wait for it to be honest. And after seeing much footage of the upcoming zelda I'm more interested in it. I could get it for the gamecube but no widescreen or progressive scan is a big downside, so I'll wait for more games from the wii. No ps3 interest just yet. Only two games are interesting for the console, one a capcom game which after stating their stance on multi-platform I'll wait. My main focus is Gears of War.

Also does anyone have lumines live. I played hours of the Demo and can't get enough, but I know the base pack and even advanced pack of the game are trumped by the psp versions even by themselves.

Also to correct the thread starter, "GEARS OF WAR THIS WEEK!!!"

I get mine Wednesday.

I preordered mine too! Getting it from Gamecrazy. It's my first time preordering, I just hope they call me, since I preordered back in August! :)

Preordering a computer game... It's so strange a concept. What? You people are afraid when it gets out of stock, that's it? No more buying?

Just forget about me.

Gears of War is for XBOX360 only! :) I want to pre-order it so I know that I'm guranteed a copy. Gotta love America! :D

If it weren't the special edition I wouldn't have pre-ordered it. Even though I can still go on shelves and get the special edition of MGS3 and Resident Evil 4, I would rather pre-order.

There's two reasons for my statement, and you guys deserve more than just my apparent sarcasm.

The first is that games are the easiest thing to find just after Viagra and condoms. There are more game boxes than players, considering that still today you can find 5 year old games on store shelves.

The second reason is that any money you spend today on something that will only benefit you in the future is an investment. Games are a poor investment ;) And even if entertainment is the sole factor, the sad truth is that never before in the industry was the hype so distant from reality. Preordering a game is saying that we are trusting the company word on how great their game will be... It's wiser, and more enconomical, to wait for the suckers who preordered it to comment on the game and then decide if you want to buy it or not ;)

But give me a limited special edition of a great game I enjoyed (note the past tense), and you bet I will preorder. But that's it.

so what do you like better, chicken or steak? ;b.

J/k, I agree that video games are easy to find, so why pre-order. But to a lot of people gaming is their prime source of entertainment. They make you feel good, to go home, open the wrapper, read the book on the can (funny how I always need to after buying a game), play the game, go to sleep, bring the instruction booklet to work to read and gloss over, etc. Games aren't just standalone entertainment features, it's the whole experience, ritual if you will, of playing a game. I pre-order only systems really, this will be the first game that I actually pre-ordered besides two 360 and xbox launch games. Plus, I'm not worried about Gears of War not being good, I haven't heard a bad thing about it.

I'm a taoist, when I have the game I wait the longest time to play it. I peel off the film on the book, read through, wait until it's night time, then play.

Also if anyone watches the 1up show the most recent had features on Gears Multiplayer (awesome footage) and Legend of Zelda on the wii.
TMI?

I just know Red Alert 2 (I assumed RA2 is Red Alert 2), Descent 2 and Destruction Derby. Well IMHO they were mediocre. NFS series were better than Destruction Derby. Warcraft and Age of The Empire are better than RA2. The only one that I have the same opinion is Descent 2 because there's no other games like Descent (AFAIK anyway) which was a combination of first person shooter and space sim. But sadly the control was annoying.

IMHO the best game ever was System Shock 1 & 2 (especially the second one with the eerie sound of cyborg midwives. It haunted me even in my sleep.)

Oh, RA2 means Red Alert 2? I even once played it, it was quite boring for a strategy game.

Descent is awesome! Though like the above people number 2 was the better in my opinion. While not a classic Everquest is a game that took up years of my life so I would have to mention it. Other games that have a soft spot in my heart, Tetris Attack for the SNES.

Anyway, games.. YAY!

For me the best game of all time is Doom. BTW Doom 3 rocks everybodys socks. That game is amazing.
