Do you play at all? :wink:

What is your favorite game? What platform do you use?

My all time favorite is Fallout-2 RPG (I guess it's an oldie now :-D )

The game I played most recently was Everybody's Golf for PSP - great relax after several hours of essay writing :lol:

I love the Grand Theft Auto games. Can't wait for vice city stories to come out. But I think I won't be playing new games for a while cus playing new missions on GTA can be addictive... :( hopefully I can play after I've taken care of GMAT :lol:

I'm using the PSP and I'm thinking of getting an wii later in the future...

I had great time playing GTA Vice City on my PS2 :-D The soundtrack to the game was AWESOME!
As an incentive for completing the R1 apps I have bought myself Tekken Dark Resurrection for PSP :lol: That's one button-crusher!!!

My favorite is Halo2,The original Halo2 was the game that sold Xbox, Halo 2 was the game that truly sold Xbox Live and Microsoft is hoping it can do the same trick again.

Microsoft should exploit the Halo series. That's what Nintendo has done with its signature games (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Pokemon, etc.). And that's what Sony has done with the God of War series. I haven't played a video game in years, but Halo and Halo 2 were very, very good; along with the re-released Conker's Bad Fur Day, those two were my faovorite games for the XBox.

starcraft 2, when they fix that damn patch that keeps freezing up my PC whenever I play.

Other than that I just play world of warcraft (recently had to quit due to GMAT), Counter-strike (yes, I'm Asian, so yes, I am pro), Warcraft 3 TFT (over 500+ wins + a lot of icons). Here's some pics of my platform. Yeah you see my GMAT book in there haha...

haha yeah that's what they told me. however, I'm a bit scared of that since I do a lot of LAN tournaments and LAN events. Don't want the liability of water spilling onto my hardware. On a positive note, the smart fan application on the motherboard available with the latest BIOS flash actually shuts the CPU and Case FAN off and on when temperatures are between certain parameters and they also control the fan speed automatically. So right now when I'm just chilling and typing or browsing the fans are off. But when the more rigorous applications are activated, they start spinning. I find that games like Crysis will have the fans spinning like the propellers off a Boeing jet!

I've always been into the gaming/technology scene. I'm friends with Angel Munoz (for those of you who know who he is) and he's always hooking me up with trials of the latest games etc etc. Pretty sweet. Connections to gaming and financial world together = heaven hahaha

a buddy of mine and I share a starcraft 2 account. he plays it more than me. he's actually went pro a few times. so far we're diamond & platinum league status across the board. EPIC. So Kudo me up if you want some free team-matched wins :-D :-D

haha whatever floats your boat...just after I get a 600+ on the GMAT's :-D :-D

terran is one of those love 'em /hate 'em race. People who are good with terran can pretty much wreck kids all day (hence, they're the most preferred race in the pro leagues...but recently it's been a toss up between them and protoss) on sight but it takes a lot of balancing and skill.

Personally, I play Zerg. Mass lings + bangling rush. Tech to Roaches + Hydralisk. Then to Broods and Corrupts. Infestors are my favorite though. But that's just me.
