What game did you play today ?

Postby Alternate BC » Sun Sep 09, 2007 09:58

Any gamers out there ? I don't play as much as i used to, i was hooked on games since C64, well even before that when a friend got an Atari 2600 from his parents, but C64 started it for me. I still play games on the pc every now and again, i don't have a game console like Xbox etc. And i like to play older games. I recently bought the complete Baldur's Gate collection for a few Euro, RPG's are my favourite since the Ultima series from the 80's / 90's. Other games i like; Doom, Command and Conquer.

But right now i have my hands full with Baldur's Gate.

Decent only with Tetris and Crystal Castles from Atari 2006, when I was just a orrid egg.

I haven't had a go on anything for about a month but I like playing games sometimes, I go through phases, I've been having a go on that oblivion, that's great, it's like zelda with hairy testicles, and call of duty 2, that's the first game I've ever finished and started playing again on a harder difficulty. It's fab.
ZSNES9X, the snes emulator gets a lot of use, especially when people are over. Mario Kart and kirby's avalanche are great two player.

"Finishing games?" :shock:

I never even attempted to do something like this.
Too difficult.

I got bought a speccy and the insanely difficult game "caves of doom" for christmas when I was dead young and I spent every waking minute trying to get anywhere on it so I've grown up socially crippled and insular but I can sure thrash some aliens when it comes down to it.
