Am I the only old-school gamer here?!
I have a SNES with me here at University (gotta love eBay!)!!
Amongst my old-school games though are...
- Sid Meier's Colonization (DOS, turn-based)
- Super Metroid (SNES)

And new-school; I'm a text-based gamer... No third-person shooters for me!
I'd much rather play NHL Eastside Hockey Manager 2007 or Football Manager 2007!!

Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 - Wii


Dear GOD it is sweeeeeeet, If you played any of the others think of it as the good bits from Tenkaichi 1 (very few) mixed with Budokai 2 and a Wii-mote so you can BBBWWWWAAAAA and presto... thats it.

And it hurts me to know that GTA 4 has not been anounced for the PC yet, so its either never comming to PC or we'll see it about 8 months after... once they've released an expansion or 2.


yeah some oldie's in there huh... And I just can't wait for BioShock and Halo 3.

It hurt me to find out that Bioshock got pushed back till the end of the year (PC) along with Halo 3 and Timeshift.

and I've found myself playing some oldies the last week or so:

Resident Evil 3 (pc version)
Kirbys Adventures
BF 2142
Civilization 1 (can never get enough of it)
Super International Cricket (Best sporting game PERIOD)
Doom 3
Stair Dismount
Shadow of the horned rat (Yes I still have a machine running '98')
UT GOTY
DBZ B T 2 (Wii finally have a multiplayer game thats good)
and finally.... Risk 2!! (who needs a board and other people when you've got npcs)

Gah, I just can't wait for them to release Golden eye on the Wii.

Ha ha! All those Games  :o
I'm still playing Twilight Princess. Gone are the days when i can have all nighters, just to finish a game.
The only all nighters i'm pulling are doing work.

The issue i wanna raise is, do any of you have heaps of games that you have hardly touched but just don't get the time to? It's sort of a permanent situation for me.

yeh man. like theres games there that i played when i first got them but havent touched them since i got first played them..

so yeh. its kinda permanent 4 me 2.. then i go to play them, but it kinda ends up bein.. nahhh, another time  :P
Mental High Five!! *wtch*

I feel for ya brotha

50% of the games I own are incomplete, its a mix of everything tho, no time, I'll play it online and I'm fixed or once i get halfway through a game somthing else cool comes out that i just gotta have!!

I still need to complete the main quest in Oblivion, need to finish single playa stalker, hit 70 in WoW (prob wont tho, it makes me shiver everytime i play it), DoW and Winter assault single player (finished dark crusade at least)... then comes  the consoles. I need 3 weeks of nothing so i can just waste it on finishing them (and they're all soo cool)

Well somtimes i think collecting the games have become more a part of my hobby than actually playing them.
And reading about games online, i do that WAY more than play them.
For some reason i find the gaming industry interesting to follow. More so than playing. Maybe it's because it's real?

If you want some real game nostalgia read about the good old games on the Amiga, the C64 and dare I mention it the Atari 2600!
The Amiga, renowned for its awesome graphics.. stereo sound could pack some of the best all time games including cinematics onto a 3.5" disk!

Check out these classics from Cinemaware.

I also constantly reminisce over the old Nintendo games... Donkey Kong, Mine sweeper... ahhhh they were the days! ;D

That article/blogger has got it absolutely right though; Mac had their chance and constantly prefer to cater for the relative 'minority' group that makes graphics/wants to be different.
Ah well...

So tempted to pull out my SNES right now; could do with playing Mario; but that'd be procrastinating.
Bad Ryan. <slaps self. LOL.>

I never owned a com64 (too young) but still played the emulator, I just can't get over the awesomness of "The shadow of the beast". It just amazes me PERIOD
Was it the first game with parralrex scrolling or was itone of the first?... i heard on of the two somewhere, either way this game (series) exploits everything a scroller has to offer IMO.

Still nothing can beat Kirby... the simplest character... the simplest story.. the AWESOMNESS gameplay. They need a Kirby on the Wii (along with their belated Metriod and Mario games), For me that game alone would sell the system to me (apart from the fact i alred have 1... and DBZ BT 2 can out early).

GAH! ATM its Tomb Raider 10th an or bust.. I just have a crave for a new Tomb Raider


p.s. I'm quite drunk so dont hold me accountable for what I say.... PEWNI PEWNI POWEMI ROCKS!!!

so guys what are some really really really impressive games that are coming out on pc?  i havnt properly played a game on pc in ages, but now i have a newer pc with better specs im thinking ill give it a go again

im after stuff that is really pushing the boundaries of what makes good games, both visually and gameplay wise.  if its any indicator of the sort of stuff im after, im hanging out for the new unreal tournament way too much!

doesnt really have to be unreleased stuff either, as i really have no idea whats been coming out for the past year or two, there may have been some really sweet stuff come out in that time...

YEP, for some reason games don't give me the same feeling as old snes games like Donkey Kong country and Harvest Moon did.
Not even the Wii and it's new control scheme changed how i feel. Maybe i'm just 'getting old'. So glad for virtual console on Wii (that's when they actually release the games i want)
