Anyone play video games here?

Post by perplex » Thu Jun 09, 2011 2:18 am

I play fighting games on Xbox live sometimes. A game called Marvel vs Capcom 3 to be exact. I havent played a lot much lately since I've been back on my music.

play Team Fortress 2 / Portal on Steam.

I'm a die hard Metal Gear fan though.

But I love any fighting game especially if it has ninjas!

I play Pong once in awhile. That, and then some Zaxxon.

I made the mistake of buying Trials HD for Xbox. Now I've developed an addiction to that thing.

I've caught myself sounding like this at times:

I’ve had a PS3 for about 3 years and it mostly collects dust. The most action it got was when you could start streaming Netlfix on it. Then I could do that on my Blue Ray player. And then Apple TV. I will say though, as dust collecting goes the shiny black case of the PS3 is top notch.

But holy shit I’m a total game junky on the iPad. I know I have games on there that I haven’t played and don’t even remember getting. Free for a day? Done. Reduced from $4.99 to $0.99 for a holiday weekend? Done.

My roommate on the other hand has been playing Gran Turismo for like the past 2 months straight. And with it’s real time 8+ hour races it will play for you so that you don’t have to. He just sets some parameters and goes to bed, race done in the morning or later that day. Just when you thought playing video games couldn’t make people any lazier Polyphony Digital kicks it up a notch.

Really? I haven't come across that, though I haven't fully explored the game. Actually racing in that game is INTENSE.
believe me. I've seen with my own 2 eyes the "video-game-you-don't-actually-have-to-play" properties of Gran Turismo and it's both fascinating and frightening.

But it gets even scarier. You can partner up with another broham while you're out and let them man your car while you're I don't know, having a job, paying taxes, being a productive member of society, and other such nonsense.

That would be me then - I picked up a PS3 a couple of days before the outage pretty much solely for Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, although I will eventually branch out. It's dictating my life at the moment. I grew up with the Dooms and the Quakes (Team Arena mainly) so come from more of a PC gaming background but as you said it's just comfier gaming from the couch.

There are tonnes of annoying people in MW2 (first thing I did was turn voice chat off), and still lots of cheating ('do U want prest1ge add me') but it can be fantastic. The worst thing is you have five awful games and one amazing one and you keep playing for that experience. Addictive as hell.

Looking forward to (predictably) Portal 2, Battlefield 3, MW3 and of course Duke Nukem :)

Huge Street Fighter fan, here. And indeed, most Capcom in general. The most exciting part about Marvel Vs Capcom 3 for me was hearing that it features Viewtiful Joe. One of the best "Pure Enjoyment" games ever made, none of this stealthy-tension-buildy-big-set-piece shit - just pure ass-kicking fun from start to finish.

And speaking of underrated games, anyone here ever play Killer 7? That game is a work of art. Should have been massive, but I guess it was just too weird. I put it in bold because it's that good.

I barely play games these days, but when I do I go old-school. :)

8O blast from the past... i loved Baldur's Gate I & II... Icewind Dale was great too.

i've been playing a cool indie game on the Xbox i downloaded called The Dish Washer. my girlfriend got into with me and we've been using it as a way to work out too... so every time we have to continue we do pushups, crunches, squats or some such. the game gets pretty damn hard and you can only save after you have beaten the level boss so it forces us to keep trying. like most chicks, Mario Bros is the only game she's ever seriously played - somehow this one's been keeping her motivated.

aside from that i have been working my way through Red Dead Redemption and Assassin's Creed. i beat Dragon Age about 6 or 8 months ago and felt like a lost a little piece of me. i could have just played it forever i think.

there's not enough time in the day.
