Games you're playing right now, and my freetime's demise

Postby JaoSming on Wed Sep 05, 2007 10:57 am

There was probably another thread like this but I need some opinions.

I have been playing too many games lately. Not time wise, but too many different games.

Within the last week you could say I am hooked on the following games.

PC
Live 07 (want to make shit again)
Live 04 (want to update it)
Live 03 (just want to play it)
Sims 2 (grew a sim to be an elder and kinda wanna just end him)
Half Life 2 (addicted, plain and simple)
Counter Strike Source (good fun with some NLSCers)
Flatout 2 (fucking fun and mid-way through another career)

360
All Pro Football 2k8 (mid-season with my Boston Revenge w/ CAPs)
Call of Duty 4 MP BETA (loving the perks, and of course, killing n00bers)
NBA 2k7 (enjoying the classic and USA teams roster I found)
Marble Blast Ultra (fucking fun online)
DiRT (see above)
Dead Rising (loving the gore and just killing shit)

Wii
Wii Sports (almost a pro in all of the sports, baseball and boxing are left)
Resident Evil 4 (just got started)
Super Mario World (great classic)
Super Mario 64 (see above)
Excite Bike (see above)

PS2
All 3 Guitar Heros (never stopped playing them)
NFL Street 1 (I can't explain my recent boner for this game)
NBA Street v2 (best street game, period)
Amplitude (can't explain this one too)
March Madness 2003 (best (aka most fun) EA basketball game IMHO)


I am not lying, I am honestly "addicted" to all of these games and I really wish I had the time to just sit down and play them all until I am content.

So basically I am wondering which ones you would stick with if you were me and what you guys are playing right now.
Opinions are my own.

METROID PRIME THREE. (Then, I will go back to Super Paper Mario. And anything else. I have such a backlog of games to finish, it's sickening.)

You like Amplitude because it's simply Guitar Hero with a normal controller. Or more accurately Guitar Hero is Amplitude/Frequency with a gimmick.

Finish RE4. It will prepare you for when you play METROID PRIME THREE.

Thank you, haha

I played Frequency for a good month before Amplitude came out, then I didn't make the jump to Guitar Hero for a good 6 months after it came out.

I got a ps3 psp and computer. I got back into MGS Portable Ops, and then got stumped on Python one of the bosses and so I'm done with that game now, but I just got Lumines 2, and wow, this game is absolutely amazing, actually crack for your brain.

Anyways,
Lumines 2, PSP (Like crack)
Rainbow 6 Vegas, PS3 (Love owning with my friends, great game)
Warhawk, PS3 (Just intense thrilling game, fun playing with 4 friends online on 1 TV)
Civ 4 and all the expansions for PC (Very satisfying, this game just draws you in)
Company of Heroes every now and then for PC (Just a solid game, fun to look at)

Edit: How could i forget about 2k7! :wall:

Alright, until I got Making History, I played Civ 2 pretty much endlessly. But you can't be serious on no Fantastic Worlds. I understand no MGE as the AI got jacked in that, but no FW?

nay, nada except that 1 measly CD. lol

I never played any of the expansions, they might be good, but I never played them.

I did play a little civ3, but didnt really get into it. I havent even touched civ 4 but I have heard great things...I should find a demo or something.

Civ 3 is pretty icky...and Civ 4 is fantastic, but there's something about Civ 2 that I still like it better. It's just to easy to have the window open and play it while you're doing so much else on the computer.

If you didn't want FW, you could also just get the 2.42 patch:
http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads ... file&id=58
You can also install 2.78 (FW) easily and get the editors:
http://www.civfanatics.com/civ2/downloads/cedric/

I don't know if you want to install MGE, the AI is broken as it was designed for multiplayer. But you can also get that if you want.

World of Warcraft - Lvl 33 Human Warrior
CSS : Zombie Mod
Battlefield 2

I'd play more Madden 08 but most of the aforementioned 3 games take up most of my times (mainly WoW and BF2 , I haven't been visiting my favorite zombie server lately) , and I'm still getting used to the controls. I'm only in my 3rd preseason game in Madden :(
