    Gaming Types

    Alright not too sure if there is a thread posted up for this yet, but here one is. What kind of games does everyone play? Doesnt matter if it is console, pc, board, card, or rpgs like DnD. Currently I meet with a group of about 13 and DnD about once a week. I also play old school console games on my pc. What do you play?

    RE: Gaming Types

    Mainly classic FPS (id Software titles; from Doom to Quake II) and classic C&C (TD, RA). Also prone to enter some sort of trance where I rush through RE/RE2 and kill absolutely everything I cross as fast as I can.

    There's a whole bunch of other stuff in there, but these are what I'm most likely to be playing at any given moment.

    RE: Gaming Types

    Old school and modern is what I play. Old school sometimes through the actual hardware itself, but often emulators. Even on modern consoles like the Xbox 360 I've been playing "coin-op classics" and older games like Wolfenstein 3D. I don't "follow the hype" much anymore and whilst some new games do look impressive, I usually wait until they hit the bargain bin before making a purchase. There are too many hidden gems that deserve the recognition blockbuster titles get.

    Outside of console and PC gaming, well, there isn't much. I've tried getting back into Pokémon cards as there's a club at my university for it and it brought back childhood memories, not to mention I figured I could make some new friends. Most people were too focused on their card games though (understandably I guess) to make meaningful conversation with. More importantly though, the novelty of the game didn't last long. It was fun at first, but after quickly learning how powerful the new sets were as opposed to my old cards, I quickly lost enthusiasm.

    Nintendo (they took charge, replacing the original Wizards of the Coast) is quite guilty of making each new set more powerful to increase sales, and I couldn't care less about the new Pokémon as some of them are ridiculous (I'll take the original 150 thanks) and not memorable at all, but since the original cards and Gold/Silver ones are weak compared to the new ones, there's no point. And then you get people who find guides online to build the perfect deck, using exploits to easily win any match. There's too much of a lack of a balance. I'd rather play the trading card game for Game Boy Colour.

    I'd probably try more card/board games but I don't really know anyone (outside of that club) who is into it, and D&D seems like something that has a steep learning curve. But I dunno, maybe one day. If there was an Outlaw Star card/board game, I'd play that in an instant. Maybe I'll need to use my (not amazing) programming skills to make something one day.

    From what I know (which isn't much), it depends on how seriously you want to take it. And on how much of a dick the GM decides to be.

    RE: Gaming Types

    I guess for me it mainly goes back to Playstation Classic RPG's like the Final Fantasy's that were on Playstation One only. As well as Megaman's from the X series. Don't get me wrong, I like the originals but I was raised more on Megaman X for the SNES.

    I do own a 360 and I play some "mainstream" games like Modern Warfare 2 and Gears of War, but I don't have gold anymore at the moment so I am now just trying to replay or actually play through for the first time some games I bought but never picked up for my Playstation 1 (ex. Final Fantasy Origins/Chrono Trigger/etc.)

    Also big into Horror games, Resident Evil and Silent Hill series are definitely up there for favorite games, actually trying to find a copy of Resident Evil 1 since I beat RE2/4/5 but never got around to playing the originals (if I had them I would have but alas, not yet).

    So in a nutshell, I am all around for games. I like RPG's, they are a great time waster for me because I don't mind cranking out the time to level in order to advance; Shooters because it's simple and easy to just jump in; Horror because it takes some skill and know-how to actually play through without cheating and how a game can get into your emotions and give you chills when you play it is to me, a very hard thing to do. However, I am not a sports game fan nor a driving game fan. I'd rather watch sports or play them and in terms of cars, I like SOME cars but I am not a big like grease-monkey or huge fan of checking out cars.

    P.S. I am with ya Mantis on the whole 150 only Pokemon. I mean, I COULD let it slide and say 151, but it really doesn't matter to me.
