games I play... well, strictly PC these days, and very limited at that since the PC only has like 2 mb of video ram, lol... but interestingly enough, b/c of the comp's limitations I've been going through a lot of older abandoned/free games that are really a lot of fun.

I consistently play Soldat, a 2 dimensional (3rd?)person shooter, you have jets as in tribes and the great thing about it is since it's only 2d, making maps is pretty simple so you get a lot of variation. you get a lot of different mods too, it's a lot of fun.

and currently I'm also dabbling in KKND2.... an rts somewhat like RA but imo there are some fundamental differences which make it a better game for me.... RA got so old after a while. and that was basically true of the whole C&C series. same basic, limited gameplay as in Dune 2, no originality. fucking westwood tards :]

also recently played: colonization 2 (a sid meier, and better than the civs imo, stays fresh longer), ascendancy, battle bugs, hmm what else, simcity 2000, star control 2... and there's more when I need it. the ones I've named have good structure that makes them fun despite their age. they 'age well' as it were...

and if my computer's graphics card was just a little bit better, I'd be playing add ons/ mods to mech commander 2... how I loved that game.

Well part of me wants to say none, but that is not strictly true. For the last 9 years I have been involved in a LARP based loosely on Stargate crossed with the X-Files that uses airsoft for the combat.

I do play board games from time to time, like for instance Cosmic Encounters, Risk, Robo Rally, Nuclear War and Mousey-Mousey (hey it's fun).

I obviously like playing Battletech, though haven't in ages, though I've been promised an invite to a game at Zac's place in the near future. Ogre & GEV are perennial favourites too, as you can just pick up the game and play.

As for RPGs, not done any in a very long while, but like Call of Cthulhu and Traveller.

Being a tired old retread/retard I've played lots of other stuff. I even own games I've not yet played!

I haven't played any RPG's in YEARS, but here's a list of what I used to play anyway. Like Martorious mentioned (way back in 2005!), the group I gamed with (not his group, so far as I know), we rotated games every 5 or 6 weeks or so.

BattleTech (TRO 3025 through TRO 3055 - nothing since.)
Mechwarrior RPG (1st and 2nd Editions, involving the tech listed above.)
AD&D (1st & 2nd Editions.)
Star Wars (West End Games version.)
Twilight 2000 (1st Edition only.)
Marvel Super Heroes
Middle Earth Role Playing (MERP!)
Rolemaster Fantasy (Gaming in the MERP "Universe", mainly.)
Shadowrun (1st Edition only.)
Ringworld (Played several times, though not as often as any of the others.)


I've also played the following a few times.

GURPS Fantasy (Although I DID get to "Transport" my Wookie character from the WEG Star Wars game! :lol: )
Villains & Vigilantes
Car Wars
Paranoia (Just once, which was enough for me! :P )
Traveller (Again, just once, way back in the summer of '84!)
Aftermath (Also just once, way back in '84.)
Top Secret



My first video game system was an Atari 2600 (mine & my brother's), then my second was a Colecovision. I've got an Xbox 360 now, and I've played a few 360 games plus a few Xbox games that they've made backwards compatable for it. My first computer was a Commodore 64, followed shortly afterwards by a Commodore 128. I got my first IBM-type PC back in 1993, so there's NO WAY I could possibly list all of the computer games I've played over the years! :lol: Mainly I play RPG's, "Shooters", and RTS-type games. No sports or racing games for me, thank you very much. :P

:lol:


Shooters:
Doom, Doom 2, Doom 3
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Quake series (Except "Quake: Enemy Territory", since my dial-up connection is too slow for me to play any Multi-player Only games. :P )
Delta Force series
Half-Life, HL-Opposing Forces
Gunman Chronicles (Uses the HL Engine.)
Half-Life 2 (STUPID STEAM!!! :x STEAM SUCKS!!!
Orange Box (For the 360 only.)
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. : Shadow of Chernobyl (GREAT GAME! Stupid wild dogs. :? They've killed me more than the humans with assault rifles have!)
Call of Duty series
Medal of Honor series
All of the Star Wars shooters (YES, even Dark Forces! :lol: )
Serious Sam 1 and 2 (Plus the second one, made with the Engine from the 1st game. "The Return of Serious Sam" maybe? I've played all 3 SS games anyway. :lol: )
Will Rock (Uses the Serious Sam Engine.)
Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood
Conflict: Desert Storm
Crysis
Armed & Dangerous (Funny as Hell! :lol: )
C&C: Renegade
Most of the Rainbow 6/Rogue Spear series
X-Com: Enforcer
Numerous others I've forgotten, some of which AREN'T worth remembering anyway! :lol:


RPGS:
Two Worlds (For the 360 only)
Fate, Fate: Undiscovered Realms
Most of the "Gold Box" AD&D computer games, on the C-64!
Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Icewind Dale 1 & 2, The Temple of Elemental Evil
The sequel to Pool of Radiance (The one that will screw your system up if you try to uninstall it without patching the game first! :shock: Good thing it's on an older PC that I don't use anymore! :lol: )
Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics (Looking forward to Fallout 3!!)
Morrowind (Game of the Year Edition - has the two addons with it.)
Mage Knight: Apocalypse
Sacred
Diablo 1 & 2 (Plus the addons for both)
Hellgate: London
Titan Quest
MANY others from the C-64 days, plus newer ones I've forgotten.


RTS:
Command & Conquer / Red Alert Series (Including Tiberium Wars & Kane's Wrath.)
Joint Task Force
Act of War, Act of War : High Treason
Age of Empires 1-3 (Plus some of the addons.)
Rise of Nations (Gold edition.)
Total Annihilation, TA: Kingdoms
Supreme Commander
Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War (Plus all but the "Soulstorm" addon.)
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos
Star Wars: Empire at War (Plus "Forces of Corruption".)
The Battle for Middle-earth I & II
The Lord of the Rings - The Rise of the Witch-king
War Front: Turning Point
World in Conflict
X-Com 1, 2 and 3
UFO: Aftermath
Westward

Plus I'm sure there's a lot more of everything that I've played that I just can't remember. :shock:

Back in the days I played regularly the only RPG I could tolerate was "Cyberpunk". I tried "Shadowrun" but as soon as someone dragged out the magic part of that game my eyes rolled and my stomach heaved so I didn't play it much. Magic and related items just do nothing for me, I learned that from D&D way back in high school.

I'm the same: the minute that 'magic' makes an entrance... I'm so outta there. Part of the reason why W40K holds very little interest for me.

I had fun playing AND running Shadowrun. When I first started playing however, we Apparently didn't fully understand the number of dice you got to roll when making magic attacks, such as with the "Mana Ball" spell. :oops: This resulted in us rolling WAYYYY too many dice, which caused a LOT of exploding skulls, like in the movie Scanners! :lol:


One game that I ran, using a scenario from the rulebook, had the PC's encounter some gang members in a local "Stuffer Shack". One PC had a troll, and he exchanged pistol fire with a ganger using an identical pistol (Ares Predator, I think?). Between the armor both had, and the fact that both were rolling low on damage, neither one was actually hurting the other. After two rounds of shooting the ganger, the PC said something like, "My character looks at his pistol, then the bad guy, then his pistol again. Since I'm not hurting him by shooting him with my pistol, I club him with it."

:lol:

He PISTOL-WHIPPED the guy, and killed him! :shock: His strength was enough, when combined with his "club", the pistol, he was able to penetrate the bad guy's armor, and kill him.

:lol: :lol:

Me too. Oddly enough I enjoyed "Space Hulk" the few times I played it but got sick of the endless attacks. So we convinced the GM to allow us to destroy hallways enough to "seal them off" thus making them impassable to anything. That little addition gave the marines a fighting chance to win.

Played 40K and Epic a few times but had too many of the "WTF do you mean I can't do that!" and "Waddaya mean my army is dead!" moments to make the games intriguing enough to spend money on them.

Hey Typhoon I see had a quoted someone and quoted yourself without replying moment! :P

Chance to drop in with a witty comment, and an observation.

I don't mind magic in games that are about magic and stuff. :roll: So, Cthulhu has its moments of sanity twisting magic, and playing WFB skirmishes use to be fun, in early editions I played a long time ago. However, in spite of saying this, I too would say that magic is one of those things that leave me cold.

Funnily enough I note that the offshoot to Big GW, Warhammer Historical, is having quite an impact on the more traditional wargamers. I hear lots of good comments about the games, and the fact that WH games have rules to allow you to make units that haven't been statted (a problem with WFB, which does not).

These are not RPGs; they're online games which call themselves RPGs.

99.999999999 percent of the people who play these "RPGs" online NEVER do any in-game character interaction (i.e., in-character chat, acting things out, etc) or do any other in-character things except kill stuff. These are no more RPGs than, say, dressing up for Hallowe'en, imho.

Speaking of true RPGs, though, I play D&D though I've never been so disillusioned with a game as I've been with 4th edition. I've used gift certificates I earn by doing surveys online to get the core books and modules H1 and H2, and can safely say I'll not spend a penny on the game.
It's been dumbed down, the character classes have been gutted, PC races have been whittled down to eight -- and three are some sort of elf -- while the massive number of player options available in 3E/3.5 are long, long gone.

Plus, the D&D website and its offer "buy, starting in September, what you've been getting for free" is just plain absurd. As usual, WotC couldn't keep its pledge to have some big, mondo suite of electronic stuff ready by such-and-such a date, but luckily for them, there are enough munchkins out there stupid enough to pay $8.99 per month for what is currently offered at no cost, thanks to the lofty WotC promise of better stuff down the road.

To put the 4th edition situation in perspective, I'm still waiting for Master Tools for 3rd edition, which was promised in, oh, 2000 and never came to pass (E-Tools, a shadow of the promised product, came out instead).

After getting my closest friend into BT, I've all but given up on D&D. All my 3E/3.5 stuff went into the attic in June when 4E showed up, and now, 4E is stuffed atop Battletech stuff on the third shelf of one bookcase; three months ago, 3.5 occupied all eight shelves of my bookcases.

In my day, I've also played
Villains and Vigilantes
Marvel SuperHeroes
Tales from the Floating Vagabond
Vampire
Werewolf
Mage
Wraith
Whispering Vault
MechWarrior
GURPS
and of course, the other stuff. I had my Magic (aka cardboard crack) addiction from 1995-1997, spending about $10K on it at the time before playing it until I got sick of it.

I've also played a number of historical simulation board games (i.e., cardboard-counter-and-dice wargames) like
Russian Campaign
Fortress Europa
Third Reich (even designing and playing several super-variants back in the late 1990s)
Europa series games, including a couple of nifty Eastern Front games years ago at Gen Con in Milwaukee (I so miss the MECCA center, and that wonderful downtown!) and a number of other games of that ilk.

I was taught chess at age nine by my babysitter's husband, but can't get past level 7 on my computer's version now (sorry; I'm not Kasparov!) and am currently on a poker-and-Battletech kick. As I write this, a pot-limit Omaha event from the 2008 World Series is on my TV, having been DVR'ed last night. (Gotta love Phil Hellmuth, mouth and all!).

All this, plus I'm a sportswriter working 50 hours a week, married with two sons, and a daughter due next month.

I think I need to sleep more.

I mostly just play:

Battletech
Warhammer 40K

I tried a bunch of others (minis, RPG'S & CCG's) years ago and just kind of stuck with these two. Although I saw a new minatures wargame at Hobbytown USA that was WWII, I keep trying to talk myself out of checking out. :lol:

Video games I don't play as much anymore. either some Star Wars titles or Car racing games, or killing Zombies

Actually I thought about it after I posted this and there is one GW one I miss playing and that is: Battlefleet Gothic

If I still had all the stuff for it, I'd still play. I loved this game because you really had to have some strategy. Gameplay could go from Galacial movement to Chaos quickly. :lol:
