    Video games, the ultimate time sink, so lazy and yet so fun, so much time killed and so much sleep lost. So who games and what do you play?

    Myself I mainly play my ps2, now that other systems are out like ps3, xbox 360 and the wii, I'm noticing ps2 games are gettin hella cheap, which I'm all about! I just picked up 2 awesome titles for the ps2 packed with old school awesomeness :

    Sega Genesis Collection - (Golden Axe 1,2,3, Sonic 1,2, Altered Beast, Phantasy Star 2,3,4, plus others) only $25 brand new!

    Capcom Classics - (Street Fighter 2 (regular, champion, turbo), Ghosts and Goblins (2 arcade versions and the snes version) , 1942, 1943, Final Fight, Legendary Wings, Commando, plus others) $16 bucks used!

    I've also thought about buying guitar hero, for awhile I thought it looked cheesy and lame but I've heard from alot of people that its fun and really addictive. So what games do you guys play?

    I dug out this game I used to play about 8 years ago, called Populous: The Beginning. You're a shaman, and it fucking owns. I like Age of Empires and Command and Conquer Generals too. RTS FTW BBQ

    i was thinking about making a thread like this lol, im really big into the game darkwatch ( which should be arriving in the mail tomorrow cuz my cousin borrowed it for 7 months and i have been going through withdrawls) and im working on dead or alive ultimate, i had to put it on easy because honestly i suck, i used to do a game called tactical ops which is like counterstrike, but the game pretty much died (no one plays it anymore) but i had a solid 1000 hours in it, fun game, good guys, i miss those days :'(

    I played a lot of Everquest and WoW in the past but I'm trying to give that up. Right now I play alot of Call of Duty 2 multiplayer. It's a lot of fun and a lot less time consuming than EQ and WoW. :loco:

    I've always been a huge gamer. Got myself a PS3 on launch, I have Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Motorstorm and Resistance: Fall of Man for my ps3. Sony has been slow at releasing alot of games, but quarter 4 of this year, they're are about 5-6 huge titles hitting the ps3.

    i'm a pretty big gamer. i mainly play consoles, and currently have gone the Sony Playstation path. i still occasionalyl bring out the N64 to play GoldenEye, but it's 99% of the time my PS2. i also play the 2 Battle For Middle-Earth games on the PC.

    currently i'm playing a borrowed copy of Guitar Hero II, and lovin' it. it gets repetitive, but is fun never the less. some of my other favourite franchises are the LOTR EA games; the EA FIFA games; the Metal Gear Solid games (still looking for a copy of the first one) and the GTA games

    i'm a fairly large gamer. Mostly RPGs been getting into imports lately as well. if only i had a job to get the money to get started. Also i suck at finishing games. i've only ever beaten two games*FF VII and 1 ending in Chrono Trigger for PS1* and neither were 100%
    Also been working a bit on the possibility of opening a game/music type store. Its in very, very, very early stages though.

    I'm strictly a PC gamer. Whether you love it or hate it, I play WoW whenever time is kind to me. Barbaric orc warriors FTW!

    ^^Azraelcross - I used to play Chrono Trigger back in the day. That was a sick game, but yeah, I think I only ever completed one ending too come to think of it now.

    I know it's not the greatest attribute of mine, but I game heavily some days. When I'm not playing my guitar, I'm usually playing World of Warcraft. I've invested a lot of time into that game. I blame my friends for getting me sucked into it.

    In my spare time my friends and I usually help each other hacking our PSPs. I'm only new to it so I don't contribute much other than testing and debugging.

    The three games I play the most are:
    World of Warcraft
    Stracraft
    Counter Strike Classic / Natural Selection

    Three favorite games of all time:
    World of Warcraft
    Chrono Trigger
    Resident Evil 2

    I play mostly on my PC, but I also own a Nintendo DS and a Sega Dreamcast, but since I do not spend that much money on games and don't like to download games illegally and it's hard to get DC games these days anyway, I've got only a few games in my cupboard.

    Dreamcast:
    µ Shenmue
    µ Grandia II
    µ Super Runabout
    µ Chu Chu Rocket

    Nintendo DS:
    µ Sonic Rush
    µ Need for Speed Underground
    µ Another Code

    I play my PS2 on a fairly consistent basis. I bought it about a year ago mainly for the first Guitar Hero game, but I also wanted to catch up on games that I never really got a chance to play like: Max Payne, Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear Solid 2, Gun, Devil May Cry, etc. I recently just played and beat Genji: Dawn of the Samurai, which is basically like Devil May Cry as far as gameplay goes. It's fun to play, but even with all the times I had to continue, it still only took a little over eight hours to beat. Now I pretty much just play Guitar Hero 2 and Devil May Cry 3.

    List of PS2 titles I own:

    Call of Duty: Finest Hour
    Devil May Cry
    Devil May Cry 2
    Devil May Cry 3
    Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus
    Final Fantasy X
    Genji: Dawn of the Samurai
    Guitar Hero
    Guitar Hero 2
    Gun
    Max Payne
    The Bouncer
    Timesplitters 2


    List of PS2 titles I want to play/own:

    Black
    Final Fantasy XII
    God of War
    God of War 2
    Ico
    Katamari Damacy
    Marvel vs. Capcom 2
    May Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
    Red Faction 2
    Shadow of the Colossus
