Sigh.

I love gaming.

Haven't had any time at all.

Getting old computer back from ex - with Diablo II on it. Never solved that one. Thinking this winter may be a good time to do that

PS1, PS3
Wii
PC (C2D6400)

I skipped the PS2 gen, so playing those games on my PS3 now. Got it a week or two ago when the price dropped and the rumor that newer PS3 will only have software PS2 emu. Finished FFX, now on FFX-2; still need to start FFXII. Also playing GT4/GTHD once in a while.

PC-wise, Guild Wars and GTR2.

Didn't play the Wii much except when I first got it.

Ahhhh, my children. I am a king amongst the ranks of the old PC games (Ultima, Wolfenstein, D&D, Diablo and such and such). Grew up playing those things, STILL really good at configuring DOS to play obscure games, also DOSBOX. Lost weight, got a GF, started some actual HOBBIES, and since then life has taken over, but I still feel fond memories.

As Tude says, no time lately, and that's ok. So many real things to do, like learning to sight read sheet music, etc. A friend lent me "Oblivion", haven't looked at it yet. Probably for the best.

The other day I went back through both Halos on the Xbox... I do that about once a month, on average.

On the PC, I lately got back into Deus Ex and Empire Earth. Starcraft, AoE II, Warcraft III, and BF1942 are all in regular rotation, too. (My PC is an old dual PIII with an original Radeon, so no new games for me.)

I guess you're my age too if your early stuff are PC-based. CGA graphics, then later HIMEM and EMM386 flags to push stuff up leaving the low 640K's for the games. Fun times.

My (older) bro-in-law's childhood gaming memory consists of C64 and such; before my time.

Just a PC

Been playing Fear this summer. Very demanding on the hardware.
I played Warbirds years ago. The whole lag thing drove me crazy after a while.
Need to get Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Wish someone would come out with a game as good as Total Annihalation. I tried the demo that is supposed to be like it. It wasn't.

Diablo, don't play it but a friend did. I remember the guy walked like he was clenching his buttocks. That was funny.

I loved the first Half Life, and Unreal had it's moments (didn't care for UT).

Now I am waiting for someone to come out with a good DX10 game.

Don't forget the joys of the never-working-quite-right Sound Blaster emulation and all that, if you were one of the unfortunate souls who opted for a shiny new Gravis Ultrasound or the like. (And that's not even getting into the jumpers and IRQ issues you went through in getting the thing working at all.)

Or the systems like the 286-16mhz, 386DX-40, etc, where your cards may or may not work because of the weird ISA speeds.

Thinking about that stuff again... think I'ma hafta break out one of the old boxen and get some Commander Keen action going.

Awwww...yeah. If you gotta change jumper settings to get a game working, you KNOW it's something special.

I'll jump back into this tomorrow, cooking for a RL GF at the moment. Didn't expect so many kindred souls.

Add to the fact that I'm putting in an awesome sound card from present computer --- just so's I can get the surround sound up and running. Ohhhhhh, that subwoofer (and a bane to my tenant downstairs)

PS2 is the first game system I bought since the original NES. I like the Final Fantasy games, Ratchet and Clank, God of War and a few others, but I generally buy a game, finish it, then don't play anything else for a few months. I get really caught up in them and will play them for hours, but then all the sitting makes me depressed, so I don't do it that often.

Since I started school, I usually wait 'til I get a long break then play the crap out of a game for a few days and finish it. Someday, I'll pick up WOW, but right now, I'm about to start 15 hours of hard classes next semester, so Warcrack would be like freebasing Kryptonite for me.

I'm slowly piddling my way back through FF12 again, (old school D&D fanatic here, ) trying to get more sidequests done. SquarEnix makes some rad games for this series.

All the console PC emulators; Nintendo, Super N, Sega, a friend of mine hooked me up with tons of them Air Trooper, Donkey Kong, Berzerk, Tron, etc.

Got a chipped XBOX with 200 Gg HD

N64 console with Starfox rarely used as the XBOX got the emulator

PS2 with Code Veronica X, Max Payne etc

At the present time the console games are gathering dust as I just finished Half Life 2 (yep just recently), Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, Rainbow Six Las Vegas (insane cool graphics and superb AI), and I just started playing F.E.A.R. and Battlefield 2.

I bought very cheap Doom 3 and Quake 4 but have not played them yet, started the first few missions of Quake; the sounds are a delicacy.

Got my eye on BF 2142 and GRAW 2 but I am thinking about it. I will wait to see hoe my PC mood goes.

System I use is:

DELL XPS 400 w/ 5.1 Creative sound system

2 Gigs of DDR2 SDRAM

Geforce 7950 GX2 OC

19" digital flat screen

What can I say? Its amazing with the sounds and graphics, worth every penny. The Geforce is a stallion of a video card, runs on rails even on the most demanding scenes.

SC and WCIII are awesome games Despite having a 1 year old gaming machine I built last year they're still up there as my favourite games

Then again, I also haven't had much time for playing the shiny new games that come out. My PS2 and Gamecube are neglected, hopefully I'll be able to game more come winter since I won't be biking as much!
