I saw threads for books ,movies etc but no computer games ,So i thought i would make one. Basically just say what games you are playing at the moment and ones you look forward to playing in the near future .

 

I'm currently playing the orange box and binary domain and looking forward to playing mass effect 3 soon too.

 

 

This can double as a computer game related news too didn't want to start a bunch of new threads.

[alert = "nerd"]

Two months ago I started with Star Wars, The Old Republic, a World of Warcraft clone situated in the Star Wars universe, that's quite addictive. If you have

  • a Windows box with quite some oomph,
  • too much time on your hands,
  • some dough burning a hole in your pocket and
  • don't mind a string of corpses in your wake

this game may entertain you for quite some time.

<geek hat on> Ooh, I play a lot of computer games and have done since the days of the old ZX Spectrum in the 1980's.

 

1990's : Superfrog, Adamms Family, Monkey Island I and II, Quake II (which I finished in 2 weeks much to my ex's annoyance), The Settlers I, II ( I first played Settlers on The Amiga) and III, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Rayman, Jazz Jackrabbit, Age of Empires I II and III and many more.

 

2000's : Too many to mention. These days I tend to play games that I buy from Big Fish Games. They are more orientated towards puzzles and thinking things out, I was never big on war games, apart from Age of Empires, and I never got into WoW. I recently bought Rollercoaster Tycoon for Windows XP and it's just as good as I remember it.

 

This is a snapshot of my current desktop and it's icons, as you will see most say 'Play...', those are games and a fraction of what I own. Nice idea for a thread,

I've been gaming on PCs and ZX Spectrums since the early 1980s, I must have played hundreds. Some of my favourites:

As you can see, few new addictions in the noughties.

couple of people have had trouble running it on windows 7. you can get it for i phone as an app if you have an i phone only 1.50p http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/manic-miner-zx-spectrum/id406164735?mt=8 . I do confess im not an expert on pc's i think there can be a way of getting it running though .

Have not really got in to many games since Elite on the BBC Micro, what a brilliant waste of time.... The junior Joscos play lots, ALL the time, but I have recently been smitten with Isle Of Tunes on the iPad.

I miss my old ZX Spectrum, few of my favourites on that were "Sherlock", "Invincible Island", "Hampstead", "Urban Upstart", "1984" and "Their Finest Hour"

 

I used to have "Lords of Midnight" on both the Spectrum and PC although it wasn't as playable on the PC.

 

Their Finest Hour was a great game to play, until I discovered a quick way to win which was to send 5 Spitfires against a squadron of Messerschmitts. That way you lose only one of two aircraft but take out most of their squadron each time.

 

I'm currently hooked on Lego Star Wars:- The Complete Saga. Once I can complete that, I'll be allowed to buy Lego Harry Potter:- Years 1-4

Currently playing Medal of Honour Black Ops, but I am absolutely rubbish at it!

I adore the Grand Theft Auto series on PS2 & PS3, but have never got to 100% completion on any of them, due to lack of commitment.

Just purchased GTA Vice City for iPad for £2.99 (what a steal), paid £30 quid for that on PS2 when it 1st came out!

Just started playing some of the games I got for christmas off various friends and my cousin.

 

Deus ex human revolution and far cry 3 , both great games so far.

Good point LFN, had to stop all that, as the wife kept catching me!

What's the chances of a new thread entitled "Watched Any Quality Porn Recently?"

I only play one computer game. This is my pinnacle.

 

I know the FM researcher and conned him into putting me in the database in 2012. No matter how many times I started a new game I never found me in the actual game though

Champions of Europe 2031, you must be very confident of bagging a shirt sponsor for the 2032/33 season?

I have... have considered getting a Harrow Borough shirt with "Ludlam 9" on the back. I might cut my credit card up to stop me doing this.

That and a stadium with a capacity of higher than 12,000, yeah.

I'm currently gunslinging my way through Red Dead Redemption and find myself quite good at being a cold blooded, selfish loner/drifter type.

Ohhhh to be a cowboy....instead of a bloody Sales Rep!!
