Official Video Game thread.
 
Ya, discuss XBOX 360, PS3, Wii, Handhelds, old systems and whatever you want in here...

I figured since we have threads dedicated to just one system, why not do one for video games in general?

I'll start it off by giving my top 10 favorite games of all time.

1. Final Fantasy 7 - Best story of any game I've played, great villain and extremely fun, I've replayed it a few times.

2. Ultima Online - Yes I know this may make some of you go what the hell? I grew up playing this game with my cousins and had some of the funnest times playing this game. The game used to be amazing, but they completely wrecked it. If I were to say this game would even be top 100 all time I would be crazy, but when it comes to the amount of fun I had playing this, it could have easily been #1 on my list.

3. Zelda OOT - N64 classic, the best game for the N64 in my opinion and easily the best Zelda game ever. I remember how much hype this game had, and it came out 2 day before my birthday and thats what I got... I was young when this came out so things like the water temple confused the hell out of me, but it was still extremely fun.

4. Socom 2 - This game was the most fun I have had on the playstation 2 and playing a first/third person shooter. The game was fun and in its own way frustrating as hell. It was the first time I played a game that had a headset to communicate with (I played counter-strike but never used it.) It was different and brought a whole new aspect to playing shooters online for me. Not to mention, it was the first time I really used the PS2 online.

5. Counter-Strike - This game set the standards for PC FPS. Another one of those games I grew up playing with my cousins, easily one of the funnest times I've had playing a game.

6. Starcraft - Everyone has played this and knows why its on this list... If you haven't played this then what the hell.

7. Super Mario RPG - Yeah yeah, not the mario game most would expect to see up here on this list, but it is my favorite game from the Super Nintendo.

8. Halo Series - I can't pinpoint which one I should put here, but I feel like that the amount of fun I have had playing this game with friends earns its spot here... It's a great series and the best console FPS ever.

9. Final Fantasy 10 - Great game, plenty of fun. The story was great and the sphere grid system was awesome, I really enjoyed this game and its my favorite PS2 RPG.

10. Warcraft 3 - Another RTS game that was amazing. This game hasn't really aged at all, its the last RTS that Blizzard has released and it has a large community. Not to mention that they have done a good job with an expansion and releasing new content such as tavern heroes online.

Obviously there are many game I could have put in here, and there are many games that I enjoyed, just none as good as these 10 to me.

Likewise, I wish I could find FF7, I had downloaded it on my laptop, but I don't use it anymore.

Anyway, I'm inbetween finishing KOTOR or starting Morrowind right now

Everything else was forgettable.

For as much as I have played games and as many games I have played, I never got around to any call of duty games, that old-style war stuff isn't for me... I might check COD 4 out, I doubt it though.

Then you will be missing out my friend. I guess it depends on if you even like FPS games though.

Probably ;)

The thing is, alot of games are coming out that I want...

My family has a Wii, 360, PS3... So a game that doesnt really interest me would be another game I have to buy, and I don't make enough money ;)

Yea, if you're not into it, there's no sense spending the money.

I'll probably get CoD4 right after school on Wednesday. Got a 4 Day weekend (thurs. and fri. off), so that is 48 hours of non-stop play!

PoopSandwich 11-04-2007 01:15 PM

I want Assassins Creed... really bad.

MVP Baseball 2005. Conversation over.


Any way, does anyone have NBA 2K8 for the 360? What do you think?

That's high praise for a game you have never played.

BrownsTown 11-04-2007 02:30 PM

I am an RPG nerd unfortunately :(

There's a game coming out tommorow I'm gonna get. Remember Marth and roy from SSB? Well they started releasing Fire Emblem's in the states and goddamn they are addicting. They're finnaly actually releasing the one with Marth next year (DS) and one tommorow which is for Wii.

I'm such a nerd. Ugh. And FFX is my favorite game of all time. I never really got into FF7, I beat it but I was never really that interested.

Yes I'm what they call hopelessly optimistic about it.

But Portal has been the most fun I've had playing a game in a long while.

Man that game was awesome. I played that so much.

I have 2k7, it's pretty good but I don't know how much they changed for 2k8.

Smokey Joe 11-04-2007 03:56 PM

Assassin's Creed has "huge disappointment" written all over it if you ask me.

We have much to discuss...

Not really, but I dunno, there's just something about those games that makes me want to keep playing. Probably subliminal messaging ;)

Jade Raymond can sell me anything though.

ironman4579 11-04-2007 04:07 PM

Actually, I'm an RPG guy myself. I used to hate first person shooters, and just recently got interested in them. My love for RPG's has dimmed a bit because I just haven't played any really great RPG's recently, although I did hear that I think it's the Elder Scrolls was a really good game.
