Default what games are YOU playing?

i mean no dating sims, but "normal" pc games.

from cyborg alberto..i can tell he is a total anihilation fan :)

ii am a very big quake fan. i've played all quake's since quake2. currently i am playing quake3 rocket arena 3 ...nick: gao,gao...stegosaurus" or "uguuu" :)

i just read a "review" of quake4, which i hoped to be as good as q3 but i am total depressed now :)

http://esreality.com/?a=post&id=903587

i dunno if this guy is just making jokes but if only 10% of what he is saying is true. it is the worst fps :)

i mean...is this thing with...q4 is like MMRPG true? if yes then they can forget me. i mean shooters have to be about skill and how good reflexes somebody have and not about gametime/characterlevel

that 70% pc games review dosn't shocked me, because they only review the single player game. i am total multiplayer gamer.

i doen't play often, but i am not that bad. (since i've played very often 3 years ago.)


i hope a question like this is allowed in this forum. if not, fell free to eraise this topic :)

As extremely off-topic as this is I'll still bite.

I mostly play old RPGs (Shin Megami Tensei, Dragon Warrior, etc.) and adventure games (Gabriel Knight, Clock Tower, etc.). I don't usually play newer games (defined as anything published within the past five years) with the exception being at parties where I usually play Super Smash Bros. Melee. I also occasionally pick up a new RPG (Tales of Symphonia for example).

My reason for not playing newer games is not because of any sort of elitism towards old generation games but beacuse I have a large backlog of PS1 RPGs lying in a chest under my bed that I have yet to beat.

I am currently playing a lot of SaGa Frontier and Clock Tower on my PS1 and I recently finished Sword of Mana and Gabriel Knight:SotF for the GBA and PC.

Note: This post was written with me functioning on 3 hours of sleep. Please forgive any grevious spelling or punctuation errors.

I'm pretty sure that Q4 review was meant to be a joke.

As for me... currently playing not a lot. I've been replaying Thief 3 in my copious spare time, but I'm up to the Cradle again, and I'm really not sure I can go through that level a second time. Scariest experience in a game ever. I also have a Touhou spree every now and again. Some day I'll beat one of those games on something other than "easy", honest...

Well, which kind of games do you think my system can play?
That's my PC:
Windows 98 SE OS
AMD Duron 950 megahertz
128 of RAM, 16 shared for the ON-board AGP video T_T
40 Gigahertz HD+2.67 Gighertz HD
CD-RW burner (My CD-ROM unit is almost useless! T_T)


Nothin' about recent games for me. T_T

But I have about 30 PC games + 9 Playstation games (Using emulators: Bleem, ePSXe and VGS).

In the truth, I don't like much (It isn't mean "I hate") of Strategy games, although I have 4 of them: TA (and, Recenty, your expansions: Battle Tatics and Core Contingency - I've gotten wth a friend, the rest you'll imagine :P), Age of Mithology, Warcraft 3 and Desperados (Kick-@55 games!)
I prefer the First/Third Person Shooters, like Hitman - Codename 47 (Oh man it's a very HARD game!) KingPin - Live of Crimes, SWAT 3 (this game RULES!) and Unreal Tournament (Do you like Quake 3 mr.aufziehvogel? so, you MUST play UT! for me, UT is better than Q3. I've played Q3 with a friend, but I didn't like of this game. I prefer the UT. - Oh yes! I don't wanna cause problems with this, ok?)
Also, I love fighting games, but I don't know anyone god for PC, only for PS :)

But at the moment, I'm playin' only the PC games, because my CD-R player unit isn't good, and I don't wanna use my precious CD-RW burner for plaiyn' games who MUST have the CD in the CD-R/RW unit.

(Now, you'll see a dark side of my methods to make this. If you don't like about "use alternative ways to get a "good" efect", please, don't read this.)

Also, because of this, I make use of (Please Haeleth, don't edit or remove this! and please, don't think who I sell Illegal-backup CDs! I don't make this! I don't make this! T_T) cracks for almost all my games
[Except Total Annihilation - Bad crack effect: no music and NO CGs -, Kanon - _inmm.dll+CD music in the HD = Kanon without CD - and Worms 2 - I didn't find a good crack T_T - and other games who DON'T need them, like Driver, UT, MDK2, Fallout 2 and others I don't remember. Thanks for the "Full absolute HUGE install" option. :)]

Only for remember: Cracks are illegal methods for make the games (and several types of softwares) works breaking the Producer Copyrights. I don't use software cracks (Except for the games. I have a safe place to get it, but I don't (and I won't) say WHERE), don't make such thing! don't be a idiot! You'll find good viruses if you'll try search software cracks - If you want a proof, ask to me, I'm a "living proof" (I mean: "someone who lived the bad experience") of ALL I say here!! - even game cracks could contain virus! pay attention!

Back to the topic.
About Trief :P
well, I've never played this game, But the UT has a MOD which brings some of the Trief's game for the UT, the Trievery UT. U can find this MOD for FREE download here! About 200 megabytes of size, though... (Haeleth, this mod isn't a "ca$h" mod. You, really, don't need pay anything for get it. it's, really, FREE, ok? But, I think that the game is better than this mod, a very-hard dificulty mod - Yep, I have the mod, not the game. T_T - and sorry for my huge post... again...)

In recent months I have tried Cave Story, Nethack, and Final Fantasy 7 and 9, but I never seem to win-- I just keep on dying. I want to play an RPG where you're immortal :(
I also had a one-month free trial of that 3D MMORPG where you pilot a ship around in space and trade goods, and that was fun but I didn't want to pay $10 a month for an addiction.

So, it's just visual novels for me.

Dynatasy Warriors 5 is all i've been playing lately. Occasionally Airrade Air/Smash Bros Melee gets a turn and very rarely i'll go back and play Worms 2, Civilization II Multiplayer Gold (waiting to see if I can use IV on this PC ^^), Halo and Conquer OnLine 2.0.

Had you asked this a year ago, I would've listed all my RPGS for you right here. Everything from FF to Suikoden and back.

Now though, I'm afraid my time limits me to my Meltyblood and Touhou spurts. (curse you Haeleth! I can't even beat it on easy yet!)

that and the occasional DDR or if my friend visits, Guilty Gear match.

@cyborg alberto: i have already tried unreal tournament. and ut 2004 (or 2003 dunno the name).

i hate it :) its not a bad game, but it's all about with wich shooter you start with. most counterstrike users like ut too. but we quakers are a little crazy :)



i started shooter with q2 and changed to q3. tried cs and ut too, butif you are really into a game (like quake) then it's not even funny playing a shooter like ut or cs.

because: i dont want to begin a flame war but it's my personal opinion. maybe this wouln't be so, if i started shooter with cs/ut.

1) quake3 and all quake games are Xtremle tweakable. you can change everything.
your pc is not so much slower than mine...my specs are:

AMD athlon 1ghz, geforce 4mx 400, 640mbyte sd ram



its cool, because you can tweak q3 so, that you can play it with every pc. my quake3 looks like ..quake1 :) i set blood off, i set textures off, i bound my fps to 125 etc.


2) i love quake, because there are not 20 weapon modes. i think 1 is enough.

3) i love quake because of the PHYSICS. i mean, have you ever played quakeworld? try rocketjumping. after a while with quake you can't play another shooter, because in quake, the physics are so cool. you can jump super wide, make trickjumps, and the game is super fast.

i have tried ut/cs but they both are slow compared to quake (all quakes) just try quake2 ctf with the hooks. THAT is (stressful) fun :)

like i said, rocket arena 3 is the only shooter for me. i usually play it once a week. (okok, 1-2 times a week)

i hope they didn't make q4 too slow.


hmmm...yeah . i like playing adventures like monkey island 1-4, LOOM and indiana jones 4 per ScummVM. i like adventures. my first pc game was monkey island on amiga 500 ;)

and today... hey, the only games i buy are rpgs, adventures and 2 shooters (quake2 and quake3) the next games i am waiting for are: the city of metronome (adventure) and the longest journey2 (adventure .)

i guess i like visual novels/dating sims so much, because they combine the advantage of an adventure game with an extra heartful story :)

i hope this isn't too long ....

Not that I've had much times for gaming lately, but the things that have gotten recent play are:
Mushihimesama on PS2
Castlevania: Dawn Of Sorrow on Nintendo DS
Night Raid on PSX
Riviera: The Promised Land on GBA (DS)

Plus the occasional PC sessions of Cave Story, Doom (running on the new Legacy engine), and the demo of Perfect Cherry Blossom, which always leaves me wondering why I've not bought the full version yet.

Man, UT2k3/2k4 doesn't the same thing as UT.
I've played Ut 2k4, but I prefer the 1st UT. It's better to me.

Also, you can find some little mutators who can bring (I say BRING) a part of the Q3 universe to UT, like the Silver Angel Model. It's with the Psi Weapons Dream mutator. - But, the Original Q3 silver Angel model is very better. :)

In the truth, I prefer the UT because UT has very gametypes, and Q3 has ONE style: deathmach, right?
UT has DM, Last Man Standin', Domination, Capture the Flag and the Kick-ass - for me of couse - Assault.
But I don't hate the Q3 my friend. I like frag several times bunches of enemies. Man a deathmach is very fun! ^^

however, only exists few ways to get this game now:
1.Buy a Illegal-backup copy (No more legal copies to sell here in Brazil, at least in my state.)
2.Make a copy of the Q3 CD of someone.
3.Ask to my friends if someone of them could get the game for me using (U can forget. I don't tell ya what they use for this.)

a little question, mr.aufziehvogel:
You have the following PC:
AMD athlon 1ghz, geforce 4mx 400, 640mbyte sd ram
And that's the mine:
AMD Duron 950 MEGAHERTZ, 128 mbytes Sd-RAM, 16 shared for the 3d on-board agp (I mean: I have "only" 112 mbytes of ram, the other 16 megabytes are my 3d ON-BOARD agp video memory. I don't have a G-force video card like you.)

Exists any chance to Q3 runs in my PC?
If yes => Maybe I get the Q3...
If no => Well, I've about 300 maps for UT... and mods and bunches of littles mods. :P

see ya!
and... get a great number of frags in your Q3 right?
(Nothin' against the Quake series. I'd like to play the quake 1 in the epock when I have only the Shareware version of doom...)

lately i've been playing NFSU2 again, mainly because my uni friends have been playing it over the uni network. although we are supposed to do project work, can't help it when you have a bunch of laptops hooked up to the uni network. also a bit of Quake 3 Arena.

@cyborg: the original quake3 has: 1on1, team deathmatch, capture the flag.

however, these types are normally not played by the gamers today.

you have to install OSP to get real fun :) (and physics)

and rocket arena3 (just google)

the original quake3 physics are not so good, but with osp or in rocket arena3 they are really good.

which internet connection did you have?

i only play online. i think offline shooters are boring.

and about q3 running on your pc...depends on what onboard graphic do you have. i mean, you can play ut? maybe you can play q3 at 640x480 with all details off.

i play it with 1024x768 16bit mode all details off and textures/blood etc. off. and i get 60 (in bigger maps) to 125 fps.

when i started quake2 with a few friends from school ( when i was 17, and i am now 22)
i was a really hardcore player :) i mean we played like professionals..made a clan..and do trainings 2-3times a WEEK!!! :)

i remember one time, when a freind called me at 2am. he said i should come because we have a clanwar against some swedish quakers :) (we all played at my friends apartment. we had 4 pcs, 1 router and one 300kbit/sek cable connection. so the 4th man had so high ping that it was ..unplayable :P man that was fun :) we played mostly q2 ctf. (the incredible fast one with hooks etc.)

and then came quake3. at the beginning we played in a clan, made ctf clan, then wqe changed to rocket arena3. but after some time (3 years ago) we stopped playing because of school, work etc. and now, we play just for fun. 1-2 times a week. no clan, no trainings no geekness :)

I have a 16 memory On-board Video Card.
A SiS 630/730 model, using the 2.08c Driver - The newest, at least... to today :)

But I have only 112 Ram, ok?

Well, I got play UT using:
-640X480 res (Too good to me. A human eye doesn't notice the "point difference" above this resolution.)
- World detail: medium
- Skin detail: medium
- Dynamic lightning and details: on by default
- Audio: Hi quality
- Enhanced AI in the pratice mode: Off
- Number of bots: No more than 10 or 12, depending of the map. Assault levels NO more than 10, because they're HUGE and HEAVY. Small deathmatch levels about 5 or more. Mainly, when I'm playin' in the DM-EnemyAtTheGates. man this map is a Kick-ass deathmatch (Sometimes the arena is attacked by warheads!) Why Q3 doesn't have a map like this?
- FPS: maybe 30fps... I don't use any counter for the FPS. For me:
- Is it playable, even with low grafics?
- Yes!
- Is it VERY ugly using low grafics?
- Ugly? You're jokin' right?
- Oh man, I'll get it! That's mine now! :)

Except some HUGE fan assault levels, I got play UT with very very few slowdowns (More sound problems, but nothing of "Oh my! my PC will stpo once of all!" :P), even using custom models and weapons. And, using all the default UT items, the game runs very good, in almost all levels.
(But I'm using this confguration in ALL time in the game.)

and, about multiplayer...
with a 56k modem? no way...
(I mean: Nothing of broadband...)

eh... "OSP"?
What's this?

and about Rocket Arena:
The mode is, roughly, "You must kill your oponnent in a round; in the next, kill him but makin' better than your previous round", right?
UT has this mod, but I didn't like it... I prefer Assault and Deathmach levels.

Thanks for help!

see ya!
(S...! Oh no, a HUGE post again! Oh Haeleth I'm SO sorry again! T_T)
