Video Games?

    Anyone play them? What's your favorite?

    Personally, I'd have to say morrowind/oblivion are my favorite role playing games.

    Fav of all time would have to be star craft and quake world team fortress

    Sim City (2000 baby!), the Halo series, the Age of Empires series.

    Does internet chess count?

    Do calculator games count? :smile:

    internet chess is great. that kept me up many nights freshman year.


    Sure, calculator games counts. I remember Drug wars, great distraction during high school.

    Can't wait for halo 2 for pc

    Tombraider fan here. Then next would be racing games, from the arcadish Need For Speed series to the sim like Payprus games, Grand Prix Legends and Nascar Racing Season 2003 (plus a lot of mods), the sim like ISI games, EA F1 Challenge 99-02, GTR, GTR2, GTLegends, and Rfactor, plus Live For Speed. The Myst series would be next, and lastly, the first person shooter games (I set invulnerability mode on), like Far Cry, Doom, Quake, Half Life, Unreal Tournament.

    I've built up quite a collection of racing game videos over the years:

    Wanted: A football (soccer) manager game simply called "the manager", where you are in charge of team in the English league. It's an old game, I first played it on Amiga 500, but I know it exists for pc too.
    I've deperately tried to find it, but failed. Anyone know of it?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Championship_Manager" [Broken]. It's very realistic and detailed.

    I play a freeware version of Go, called Dariush. I would play others online, but I can't even beat the computer.

    I remember Morrowind, it was a fun game. I don't think I ever beat it, though.

    The best were the Commodore 64 games.

    I used to play a WWF game with my boys. A round of wrestling on the computer - a round of wrestling on the living room floor - a round of wrestling on the computer .....

    And who could forget the original C64 Jeopardy version, with no time delay for answering the questions. We'd get a few neighbors together, along with some beer, and play full contact Jeopardy - when you're running the board by picking easy questions and instantly hitting the button to answer, then suddenly hit the $2000 question in the most obscure category to lure your opponents into blindly hitting their button, it's only a matter of time until things escalate into a physical struggle to control your own button. :rofl:

    Playing Winter Games and Summer Games with no instructions was a lot of fun for awhile, too. Learning a new trick in figure skating brought instant awe.

    Did you play Elite? A black/white wireframe space trader game. 5% picking cargo to buy/sell, 5% shooting at police ships, 90% trekking to the inner solar system and trying to dock with the stupid rotating space station...
