Video Game Nerds Here

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Flaremon, Apr 13, 2010.

  1. The official Iwaku videogames thread. No one's created one of these, yet? Guess it's probably it's more fun to play games than talk about them... Huh.

    So, Halo, Final Fantasy, Legend of Zelda, Gears of War, Need For Speed, and so many more. This thread is for you videogame lovers out there to have the biggest geek talks of your life here.

    First off, I'm gonna post one of the latest episodes of Bleep Bloop here... featuring FFXIII. Enjoy.

    And then we can get started with our first topic - your favorite video game.

    Gee, that's easy. <_< Mine's probably Halo, hands down. I've been playing it for half of my life, but I stopped playing after Halo 3, waiting for the fourth installment to come out before cashing in one of these expensive things (not gonna buy the spin-offs, no thanks). I guess it's probably because FPS is the genre of game I'm most experienced at... and that's not saying much. :P

    So, what about you, folks? The nerd talk starts here.
  2. Well now it became a tie between three games since two weeks ago on saturday *if you live in the US*

    My tie is between Legend of zelda Ocarina of time, Super Mario RPG legend of the seven stars, and Okami *wii version*

    I have been playing video games pretty much all of my life time now *yeah every day if I get the chance* and well this is my results of the best video games ever *well in my opinion you all may say other wise*.

    Well halo is an alright game but for me it isn't something that I would rave over. *no insults intended*
  3. FFVI, Snes emulator on my PC.

    So awesome...and, perhaps more importantly, so many bugs.

    So little time.
  4. Castlevania all up in dis bitch he'ah!


    Metal Gear Solid.
  6. Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy have always been my favorite RPG games, although I've played countless others. Shinning force for the old school sega is pretty BA too.

    I think the game I've put the most consecutive hours on is street Fighter Alpha 2 for PS1. We would play that game for hours and hours. I have faith in the fact that I'm nearly unbeatable with Ryu and Unbeatable with Akuma.
  7. Sarvis had stepped back a little to allow the others to look at the weapon, looking around and scanning each and every one of the squad, marking down their normal levels and getting their health on his HUD. He took his job very seriously, he wanted to keep his team alive and in fighting form as much as he could. Though, that Limekian... no, she just had the blood of them inside her. That didn't mean that she would give them up...

    After a while longer, the city would come into sight, and Val would be able to see a bit as they flew around the city from the north to the south. She could see that the Limek army was still there, but not in force. She could see patrolling trucks, squads, and even a tank or two - if she relayed the information to her Tac-map, everyone would be able to see their last known positions in the city on their HUD.

    "ETA Two minutes!" came the voice of their pilot, Vaughn nodding. "You got that people? Ready up, as soon as we hit the ground we move as one towards the closest building."
  8. Kara checked her straps for her railgun, making sure it would stay set as she moved, repeating for her minigun. That would be in her hands, but if they dropped in rather than landed she wouldn't be able to hold it. She then double checked her ammo, making sure she had two clips for both guns along with a spare energy crystal for her railgun, sure it burned through actual clips faster than the crystal, but its always better to have a spare.
    "Loading that gun must be quite interesting." Especially if it can use so many different crystals.

    As she spoke to Lucetia Reia also started grabbing empty pouches she didn't see much extra ammo clips so she would have to take them from their foes, but that would still be a nice thing for her to do for her squad...hopefully.
  9. And the best games ever are:

    The Football Manager-series, GTA: Vice City, GTA: San Andreas, GTA IV, GTA Chinatown Wars, NBA Live-Series(Probably NBA 2k from now on) and...yeah, I think thats it.

    *walks out with middle-fingers raised at the angry nerd-crowd*

    Suck my sports-balls!

    No, but yeah, thats my list.
  10. Yea, how could I forget about Madden and GTA?
  11. Soon enough the flyer landed, well, not landed. It hovered a few feet in the air so it wouldn't have to touch down. "We're on the move. Reia, with me. Val, hang back and watch for snipers as we advance. Inigo cover her. The rest of you, fan out and move forwards. We'll regroup in that building." he said, marking a burger joint that was just inside the city on the squad TACMAP.

    From there, Vaughn leapt out of the flyer and landed on the ground, followed by Sarvis. They would raise their weapons to keep the perimeter secure. They would wait until Val checked the roofs - no snipers in view - before they moved out. From there it was a quick jog to the joint, the squad keeping their weapons up.

    Once they were in, Vaughn knelt and placed a hologram projector onto the ground, which showed the whole of the city. Two areas were marked and a good number of those enemies that Val has spotted were on there.

    "Here was where squad Raven was last reported." he said, gesturing to one of the areas. "And here, Boar." he looked between them all under their helmets. "We can either split into two groups and try to gather them both at once, or focus on one at a time. I am, however, loathe to spilt up in this territory."

    He then pointed to the city center. "For now, we stick to the outskirts when we move. The central square is too fortified.." he then paused and looked around at his squad. "Now, I want to hear everyone's opinions on what we do." he stated, his mind working on the chess game of three levels plus, and knowing his team's disposition would help immensely.
  12. D:


    (Oh, and Half-Life 2. GORDON IS KING!)
  13. The song's called Heron Blue, by Sun Kil Moon.

    And I'm suddenly looking forward to April of next year.

    I'd hold Half-Life up there as probably my favourite game series of all time. Hell, I like all things Valve, but there's something particularly special about Half-Life.

    It'd be nice if they, y'know, released Episode 3 some time, though.

    Also, Bioware makes the best RPGs out there on the market right now. Fuck your JRPG bollocks; I'll have me some Mass Effect and some Dragon Age, thank you.
  14. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Killzone are on the top of my FPS list.

    Fuck your Halo...
  15. Oh, hell yes. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s easily a better game than Halo.

    'Cos, y'know, originality is always good.
  16. I have no favorite single games. More like various series. Like Metroid.

    Also: Pic semi-related to gaming.

  17. Half-Life is the greatest FPS of all time. Pfft @ all of your Halos and Stalkers!

  18. Excuse me, but...

    Yeah, he can survive Combine but surviving in the Zone...

    No chance in hell...
  19. My favorite game's so underground you've probably never even heard of it.


    Maybe you have, I don't know. Anyway, best game using the Build engine. That's right, this baby has slanted surfaces and room-over-room technology. And sprites? Bitch, it got VOXELS. Also grenade spamming enemies before it was cool.

    "I think I'll donate some blood. Someone ... else's."
  20. Seiji, you never discovered Dr. Freeman's corpse in Shadow of Chernobyl did you.

    you dissapoint me sir.

    that said, I wont say no to a good game of Original DOOM.

    "hurt me plenty motherfucker, i have enough ammo for all of you"
