  1. I don't play video games all that much myself, however, I watch a lot of walkthroughs and I'm always looking for more video games to watch.

    What are your favorite games to play?
    Do you have a specific platform you prefer to play on? (Computers, consoles, handhelds)
  2. Well, Lawk, my dear... I love to play games on most any platform. However, my favorite way to play them is with an xbox controller. I have my computer gaming rig set up to use one and everything. It is quite nice.

    Some of my favorite games include:
    All the Dragon Age
    All the Mass Effect
    Knights of the Old Republic
    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
    Fallout 1, 2, 3, New Vegas
    The Banner Saga
    Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9, 10, 12
    The Bard's Tale
    Infinite Undiscovery
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    Divinity 2
    Divinity: Original Sin
    Elder Scrolls: Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim
    Game of Thrones
    Jade Empire
    Left 4 Dead (1 and 2)
    Loren the Amazon Princess
    Dragon's Dogma
    Monster Loves You! (Don't ask, it's... an odd addiction)
    Murdered: Soul Suspect
    Orcs Must Die!
    Overlord (1, Raising Hell, 2)
    Portal (1 and 2)
    Shadowrun Returns
    The Walking Dead (Season: one, two)

    There's more, probably, I just can't recall them all off the top of my head o.o

  3. Idort master race.

    I know, PC rules it all in gameplay, mods, sound, and graphics, but being able to play everything is so much more satisfying.

  4. I love strategy and space sim titles. The vast majority of those come out on PC, so I'm a PC gamer. I loved my PS2 as a kid/teenager though. :ferret:

    As for games I'm playing at the moment? Elite Dangerous and Europa Universalis IV are fairly consistent on my end.

  5. Favourite Games? I can get down with that, I'll just list some of my current top favourite games(It changes everyday lol). I focus more on action/Hack 'n' Slash/Fighters/Beat 'Em Ups/RPGs than other genres, because I like a little more bang and pow :p, but I will play almost anything(fuck MoBAs and MMOs up the arse.).

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - My favourite game from Platinum Games, on a personal level. Mechanically one of the best action games since Bayonetta with an interesting cutting mechanic that can bring out the sadist in you. It's short, but the combat and overly ridiculous nature of the story keeps bringing me back again and again.

    Chrono Trigger - Yep, no need to explain this one, I love this game so much <3.

    Zone of The Enders 2: The Second Runner - Pretty much the same reason I like MGR; great combat mechanics that keeps bringing me back again and again. A Konami Game outside of usual Metal Gear Solid stuff.

    Metal Gear Solid Series - I just love this franchise so much. I'd have to give the overall favourite spot to MGS3: Snake Eater though.

    Dragonball Z: Tenkaitchi 3 - One of my favourite licensed Anime games out there. Solid combat, still looks really good and sports 141 playable characters. 141.Playable.Characters. *_*.

    I can probably think up more later, but those are probably my more consistent top favourite games ^^.

  6. I like shooters a lot, but I also still have a soft spot for platformers, fighters, and RPG games. I prefer the PC.

    Damn, I wish there were more PC platformers...
    • Thank Thank x 1
  7. Baldur's Gate


    Chrono Trigger
    • Thank Thank x 1
  8. I am an RPG girl. Final Fantasy games are one of my addictions, especially FF9 (I always get all warm and fuzzy at the end!)

    FFXI...I played from the North American release up until Realms Reborn was released and stole most of my friends away. My little red mage will always be my favorite MMO character. <3

    I've been playing a few horror games lately though. I'm currently playing Among the Sleep which is far more depressing than it is scary, but I guess that's because I can't quite drop down to thinking like a two year old. =/

  9. Serious Sam is pretty great chaotic fun. Even II.
    • Thank Thank x 1
  10. Glorious PC master race, of course. Do I look like some kind of peasant?

    But nah, I've got consoles available to me and play them once in a while. It's just more convenient for me to play stuff on my computer, especially since I got a USB plug in Xbox controller. Also, the best game deals by far are all found on PC in the form of Steam sales and Humble Bundles, so that's another reason for my preference. There just aren't many consoles-only games out there nowadays that I care to play.

    As for my favorite games, here's a bunch that would make it onto my top 50 list in no real order:

    Fallout games: 1, 2, 3, and New Vegas (1 & 2 > the newer ones in my opinion)
    Legend of Zelda games: A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask
    Mario games: Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Yoshi's Island
    The Elder Scrolls games: Morrowind and Skyrim
    Dark Souls 1 & 2
    Dragon Age: Origins
    Illusion of Gaia (AKA Illusion of Time in Europe and Australia)
    Super Metroid
    Warcraft 3
    Portal 1 & 2
    Civilization 3, 4, and 5
    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
    Diablo 2

  11. The only games I've played are handheld ones and most, if not all were pokemon. I played Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for Gameboy Advance. I've tried playing Minecraft on my computer but I don't have a gaming set up or a good USB or Wireless mouse. If I had a decent set up, I'd possibly play more, but I prefer my books or writing lol.

    Dwarf Fortress, because losing is fun

  15. I don't think anyone can doubt the superiority of PC gaming. How are you gonna play Runescape? Dwarf Fortress? On your XBone? Don't think so, bro.

    Seriously, tho, my top games are EVE Online, Crusader Kings 2, and Distant Worlds.

    WoW could be on here, but 2010 was five years ago.
  16. My favorite games of all time, in no particular order:

    Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear
    Command & Conquer Red Alert 2
    Elder Scrolls V Skyrim
    Mass Effect trilogy
    Gears of War trilogy
    Red Orchestra 2/ Rising Storm
    War of the Vikings
    Mount & Blade Warband
    Far Cry 3 & 4
    Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion
    Assassin's Creed 4 and Rogue
    Transformers War for Cybertron series
    Super Smash Bros. series
    Rayman Origins series

    And a shitload of Nintendo games.

  17. I've been looking at AC: Rogue for some time, is it good, Dervs?

  18. Pokemon! (SoulSilver and X)
    I love all of the main series pokemon games, I didn't get to play any as a kid, but I picked it up in college (when I was old enough to understand the mechanics at work) and fell in love. I love completing the pokedex and breeding perfect pokemon to give away; it's a great way to kill time, explore a world and story, and challenge myself. I feel really gratified when I get a pokemon I've been trying for for a long time, when one of my favourites evolve, when I beat a difficult gym, etc etc. Pokemon makes me happy whenever I play it, so why would I stop?

    Harvest Moon (any title)
    Man, you talk about a slice-of-life genre done right. If you want to relax into a character and kill time living an idyllic country life, the Harvest Moon games are for you; although probably the older titles more than the newer ones. Newer installments in the series seem to favour a more frenzied, multifaceted approach. Instead of building up your farm and having a family, you must also defend your farm from enemies, compete with neighbouring entrepreneurs, sell your products yourself, resurrect structures or entire land masses, befriend/help the Harvest Sprites/goddess, make friends and solve their problems, et cetera et cetera et cetera! Definitely still fun though; I find most HM games are as hectic or relaxing as you want them to be.

    Final Fantasy (yes, even the newer ones)
    Cutscenes shmutscenes. I love immersing myself in a big, vivid story, and if there's one thing Square Enix does right it's that. I love the immersive graphics, the cool, outrageous, fantastical designs, and the multilayered characters. These games are usually long and have a great story payoff at the end, too; definitely a must for those who like a really strong narrative focus in their games.

    Tales of Vesperia/Graces/Symphonia/Xilia
    Everything I said about Final Fantasy, but with more ease of multiplayer and more focus on side quests/optional objectives? Yes please!

    For some more specifics...

    I'm paraphrasing, but GMR magazine once described this game as all the fun of strategic wargames, without the camo-clad angst of an RTS. Pikmin is fun, cute, motivating, and requires you to use your head a little. It's addictive and really rewarding when you make progress.

    Avalon Code
    Oh man, this game. Kay you know how most games you have to save the world, or at least part of it? In this one, the world is ending, and your job is NOT to stop it. No, your job is to find everything in the world that's worth taking to the next one using your Book of Prophecy, and rescue the Book Spirits before it's too late! There's a lot of customizing in this game too, because when you record ALL OF THE THINGS in your book, you can alter them with different codes; replace an 'iron' code in an enemy with an 'illness' code, for example, and he gets a lot weaker! Add a 'fire' code to your weapon and set things ablaze! With your weapons, armour and accessories, you can even code yourself entirely new weapons! The storyline also changes slightly based on your decisions, which I'm a big fan of.

    Mario Kart: Double Dash!
    I love this Kart classic. It makes me a bit sad that it's gotten dated and you can't bring it to a party expecting everyone to know it and its console anymore. It's easy to pick up and play, but not many are willing when there's so many more recent titles they already know. I love the doubles mechanic though; my brother and I were an incredible team and it's way more fun to play cooperatively.

    You play as a tiny robot who works in a home by cleaning up messes and solving the family's problems to make everyone happier.
    ... It's really fun and addictive, okay? It'll turn you into a virtual neatfreak, obsessing over finding enough scrap-metal to make a ladder so you can reach that stupid stain on the wall, but it's very satisfying when you complete a challenge, and there is a pretty decent overarching story that plays out as you progress in the game.

    There's probably lots more, I may edit/re-reply later :)
