—————————————

I'm bored, and as the subject states, what games, if any, do you all play?

MMOs, FPSs, RTSs, music games, strategy, simulation, action, adventure, etc..?

Myself, I've played most every MMO since back in the "MUD" days on the local BBSs. If you have to ask what a MUD or BBS is, hit up Google young one. :) I like simulation games and role-playing games. I have all the music games (and their instrument counterparts), and just got done with Starcraft II.

So yes, I dabble in a lot of here and there in terms of gaming. Right now, I'm bored out of my gourd and looking for something to do with friends or something to put me to sleep cause this is going to be a loooooooooong week.

So, again I ask, what are you guys in to? Keep me occupied, dang it. :)

Note: Facebook games do not count as anything 'entertainment' and I'll set fire to this joint if anybody mentions them. :D

RE: Games ... What Do You Play?

I've softmodded my Wii so I can download and play games right off of a usb hard drive, so I play loads of different stuff (since it's all free:D). Right now I'm kind of hooked on Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility. Broken Sword is totally awesome too. I installed a SCUMMVM application on Homebrew so I could play all of the Broken Sword games that were only released for PC's on the Wii. And I've completely destroyed all of the Guitar Hero games (it helps when you play guitar for real).

RE: Games ... What Do You Play?

My "gaming" is confined to NoLimits, the RCT series, and whatever is getting good reviews at the time for the iPhone/iPod touch.

Mmmm.. NoLimits. I have that on a CD somewhere. It's been a long while since their last update, no? I remember back years ago they were talking about adding new types of cars to choose from - then never did. I'd check the website for a few months but they just stopped updating it. Damn shame. :(

They say that NoLimits 2 is still under development. My fingers are crossed.

Yeah, but so is Duke Nukem Forever. ;)

I'm hoping, though. I've spend too many hours in NoLimits (and RCT3 pretending it was NL2 - but failing, before I gave up on it).

RE: Games ... What Do You Play?

I think I can establish my position as the board's uber-geek with this revelation: I've been playing in a medieval/fantasy Live Action Roleplaying Game called Darkon for 18 years :)

You, Shafor, are a hero of mine. :D

I've always wanted to get into Darkon, but never had the chance to delve into it deeper than I did for an hour or so one day. Pics - make it happen. ;)

RE: Games ... What Do You Play?

Rock Band; it is my obsession and life-blood at this point. Any Rock Band- doesn't matter. I used to play all kinds of Survival Horror games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill... but my free time has diminished and one really needs unhindered hours upon end to beat the games in a timely manner.

I used to work at EB Games for years.... played about everything. Puzzle Games, RPG's, First Person Shooters, Fighting Games, and side scrollers were all good. I like most Wii games and still love the continual classics - Mario, Mario Kart, Zelda... etc.. type games. SIM games are the devil. If I so much as play a SIM game for more than 2 minutes, I might as well check into a rehab center and give up on a life outside gaming.

PS- I was the very first female hired at Electronic's Boutique in the Southeast Region... way back when. Hilarious. They had to make up a dress code for me! :p

PPS- LovDoc, your Jersey Shore profile photo is giving me nightmares! The horror!—————————————

RE: Games ... What Do You Play?

Everybody watches the Jersey Shore ... and nobody will ever admit to it. ;) The Sitch 4 LIFE! *chuckle* The most entertainment-packed hour you can ever have - every Thursday night. ;) I figured I needed a picture to put there - why not make it something everybody can laugh at that's not my self-portrait. :D

Rock Band, eh? We're going to have to find each other one day online or elsewhere. I demand a rematch, but instead of 're' - we can make it 'the' ... get it ... GET IT? huh huh huh ???¿?¿¿?

Ugh, I can't stand The Sims at all. I was interested on the first one .. but then 50 expansions later, a failed online game and sequels of me pretending ot live a virtual life inside of my own real life became .. silly (I'm being nice here). :p



I'm losing my mind. Can this day end please so I can look forward to tomorrow's fun-filled excrement .. I mean excitement!

RE: Games ... What Do You Play?

I usually play adventure, driving, and FPS games on consoles. I'm a bigger fan of retro games than modern games. I especially love Nintendo. I also occasionally play Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but not that much because I don't really like rhythm games that much (I hate DDR).

I used to play RCT 1, 2, and 3 religiously until I bought a new computer. Unfortunately: it's an Apple. I'm planning on double-booting Windows 7 on it just for playing my old PC games.

Yup, I have every piece of work he's done both local and imported. He was scheduled to be at a concert I attended (Dear Friends in Atlanta, GA) a few years ago, but last minute he was unable to attend. The concert was great but I wish he was there. :(

RE: Games ... What Do You Play?

Shafor, you may be a geek in LARP, but I've been table-top role playing for 25 years. I played a Vampire game for 9 years. My current game is on year 4, I think.

I love Rock Band, Nora, and CANNOT WAIT for RB3. KEYBOARD!!!!!!!!!!! I have some friends that get together every few months and play RB all night long. Lot's of fun and will be better when we can have 9 people playing at ONE TIME.

The Lego games are fun. I like RPGs. I have had nearly every console that has ever come out, from Atari 2600 to PS3 and Wii. No XBox, though. Didn't think it was necessary when I have the better system already. Besides, I can play my Star Wars Bluray discs when they come out next year. Yes Nora, I did say STAR WARS ON BLURAY!

I'm originally from the Baltimore area but moved away about 5 years ago. Really killed my geeky gaming. I played in a Wed night D&D campaign that ran for 12 years, and my Darkon involvement went from every other weekend (which is what their schedule runs) to about 3-4 times a year. Sure do miss it all :(

A ton of my friends play/or have played Vampire games through the years. I never really got into it though. I did do English Civil War reenactment pretty hard core for about 5 years though (again, losing touch with it after moving out of Maryland).

Sigh, now I'm bored and depressed.
