All ive got to say is..... OCTOBER 28TH!!!! GUITAR HERO 3 COMES OUT!!! I cant freaking wait. That game actually helped me on the real guitar too, its pretty amazing. Please share your thoughts...


The guitar heroes were fun, but I kinda lost my desire to play them. If I feel like playing GH, I would rather just play my real guitar. My brother is INSANELY good when it comes to GH, and the real guitar for that matter.... He five stared a good majority of the songs on expert. it's unreal how good he is...

isn't GH3 being made by another company though?

yeah. I spent a long time on MMO's like Everquest and City of Heroes. Granted they were super fun and i met some cool people and learned some life lessons I probably couldn't have learned anywhere else, it still feels like a time sink.


- Starcraft

- Fatal Frame

- Final Fantasy 7

- Resident Evil 1, 2

- Earthbound

- Goldeneye 64

- Mortal Kombat (any)

- Metal Gear Solid

- Day of the Tentacle

- Diablo 1, 2



I wanna get Bioshock so bad.

Arg, completely agreed! It stole a whole year of my life :S. Granted, it's fun on a gaming level, but when you're spending 14 hours straight trying to get something that has no physical value, it's just stupid.

Can't wait for Orange Box, Mass Effect and Assassins Creed! Also I need to get Bioshock.
If only exams were over though, heh.

Anyone here play Neverwinter Nights?

So. It's ok if you play for nothing, no rewards? biggrin.gif

Physical value? Like money? Real world money is as fake as any monetary system in an online game. They are all just a virtual representation of ... what? You can trade this amount of coins for that. They are all sensitive to theft, frauds, forgery, dumping of the market and so on.

The value is just as real in the game as it is in any world. Like the real world.
You spend this amount of time "working" to get that amount of money or that cool equipment.

What's the difference in sitting at an office behind a computer all day and produce nothing physical and get a certain amount of money on your account for that, or doing it in a game environment?

Who's to say that spending four hours with your friends online is wrong, but spending them on a pub is OK? (Well I'd be in the pub but that's not the point).

I know it gets out of hand for some but I'm not the one to say that 14 hours online is madness but 14 hours of guitar is a healthy way of living. To each his own.

I tried COD4 demo yesterday...i was not impressed by it, and no, it was not low details - i can run it on the highest possible details. In my opinion COD was much better when they used the WW2 times.

Right now i am only playing Battlefield 2, Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion and Vietcong here and there. Last couple of months I seriously reduced the time spent on games.

Halo is pretty cool, although the story wasnt as deep as i would have liked, character creation though, in Halo, is amazing.


The problem I'm having with Halo 3 is not so much the story, it's freakin fun to do four player co-op, but the multiplayer. I'ts like everyone ,who was awesome at Halo 2 because they played all day, has had their skill transfer from Halo2 to Halo 3.So I can't hardly win a ranked match sad.gif

It, didn't really help me out on guitar, except make me want to play some of the songs, but yeah it's a freakin fun game. The track listing for this one isn't as good as the previous GH games, though, imo. smile.gif It doesn't really get good till the last track with Metallica and Slayer, but they don't have Megadeth....or Pantera. mad.gif

I really HATE World of Warcraft with a passion mad.gif
My brothers have wasted so much time on that stupid game. On beautiful sunny days. "Hey Dan, let's go out and toss the football or something." I can't, I have to raid this village and me and my team won't be done for another 4 hours." "Are you kidding me?!??!?!"

I wouldn't be so annoyed with it if that was once in a while, but seriously, it's EVERYDAY.

God I hate that game! mad.gif mad.gif mad.gif mad.gif

Gaming, IMO, is cool, as long as it's not your life! (if it is your live, I hope you get paid for it. More power to you!) I love COD, but I'm not going to be playing it from the moment I get home to the moment I go to bed....

grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

As far as WOW goes, I LOVE IT, I havet played it in a long time, but i'm going to build my own gaming computer, I won't waste tons of time on it though


To those who want Bioshock, its a really short game, I have it, but it is good, I don't think it should have got a 10/10 (Game Informer) though.

Like blindwillie said - to each his own. A gaming computer shouldn't be that expensive. I think I spent like $1,400 USD on mine. or $1,200 USD? I can't remember.

I kinda agree with you about bioshock. I played it for like 2 days then I stopped.

Has anyone played Company of Heroes for the PC? It's pretty amazing!

Lets talk about videogames laugh.gif

Anyone want to start?



Right now I'm not really playing anything that much, I do dabble in Need for Speed Carbon, Splinter Cell Double Agent for the WII and I also like WII sports quite a bit.

I used to be a video game addict. For the longest time I would get up with the family and then when they went off to school and work I would jump on the computer and play MMORG's, I go all the way back to M59, I played and tested, The Realm I, II & III, Ultima Online, EQ, AC I & II, DAOC, SWG, AO, WWIIOL, Shadowbane, WOW, Vanguard, LOTR. If the game had an add on pack I probably bought it.

As you can see I've been playing MMORPG's for a long time. I ended up buying LOTR but never really played it and then decided to give up online games. Warhammer and Age of Conan are coming out and I'm on the lists to test them so I might test them and then decide to buy, but it's really going to have to be different game for me to ever play online again.

As for stand alone games the list is just too large for me to try and do that here. Same goes with PS2 games we probably own 200 of them if not more. We burned out 4 PS2's and are on the 5th one now, ROFL.

Of course all of this is over the span of 10+ years. It looks like a lot when I list it but it's really not when you consider there are 5 of us here all who play games of one kind or another.

If you build your own, you can save a bunch of $$$. It's really not that hard to do either. I built this one a little over a year ago for about $1900.00 and it was all the top of the line(pretty much) hardware at the time. If you need help in figuring out what to put in it, how to do something etc. You can go to the Tom's hardware site; Forums area and then to the Homebuilt Systems forum. A lot of great guys there with a lot of great advice on how to build your home PC for whatever you want to do with it.

I have to say this.


there should never be a WW2 Game ever made again, we have thousands of them, and all of them suck! same guns, same story, same objectives, very repetitive.

That's why I'm happy COD4 isn't about WWII. But I guess it's still a war type game.....

sounds like you hate WWII games as much as I hate WoW! And there's nothing wrong with that! wink.gif

I know what you mean Polack. I usually only play WoW if I have nothing better to do. It's a way to kill time, and nothing more.

I got a Wii for my birthday, and I hate it like the plague. I bought Twilight Princess because I heard it was good, and was disappointed to find that it really wasn't impressive. Sure firing arrows with the bow is fun, but so far I rarely even use it.

Nein, not all of them suck. We have COD1 and COD2, which were both very fun. I still think all MOH games (including MOHAA) are disappointments.
