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:

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...

Just thought I'd visit off topic for a quick while and remembered this thread. I'M STILL WAITING FOR MY DIABLO 3!!!! (as indicated on November 2nd, 2010) Thus far, Cataclysm (WoW's newest expansion) has been pretty promising.

I can't believe I've never posted in this thread...

Childhood
As a kid I played a lot of Nintendo, Sega, and PC games. On the PC, I played Carmen San Diego, Oregon Trail, Command & Conquer, Wolfenstein, Duke Nukem, Monstertruck and Motocross Madness, Carmageddon, Microsoft Flight Sim, Syndicate, Ultima 8 (Pagan), and others that I can't remember right now. The earlier games I played on a 486 and some of the later games I played on a Compaq 200Mhz that I bought at Costco when I was about 12 years old.

Ultima 8 was a lot of fun, but my mind was completely blown when I saw someone playing Ultima Online in 1997. It looked just like Ultima 8, but they were playing with other people... on the internet!!! I had a 33.6k dial-up connection and it took about 30 minutes to get past the login screen. The server saved once an hour and caused a lag spike that lasted for minutes at a time. I was sufficiently addicted to UO and played until my parents made me quit in 1998.

High School
Through high school I played Half-Life, Counter-Stike, and few independent UO servers, but I was lucky enough to have an Xbox on launch day, so I played Halo a bit too. I was a pretty active skateboarder and I played guitar in a few metal bands, so games were a pretty low priority in high school.

College
The gaming bug bit me again. In November of my freshman year, some awesome Canadian decided to launch an independent UO server that emulated the 1998 era. The game was full of nostalgia and hugely successful, with 1000 people online at any given time. On days with a lot of action, I played up to 16 hours at a time! I had to stop when I showed up late to Honor's Statistics twice in a row and the teacher told me it'd be my last warning - I was only sleeping for 1 hour before class. The server was taken down around the same time that World of Warcraft launched, so I pre-ordered a copy for myself. Fortunately for me, I lost interest in WoW pretty quickly.

Post-college
I played WoW on-and-off a few times with some of my best gaming friends and tried my hardest to rank up in Arenas once they were added to the game. I was lucky enough to have friends that were consistently first place in our battle group, but even playing with pros wasn't enough to keep my character geared. By the time I realized I was on a 20hr/week treadmill, I got pissed off and quit the game for good. Unfortunately, WoW made every other game feel like a complete waste of time for me.

2010
I actually broke down and bought an Xbox 360, so I could play MW2 with friends from work. It was fun while it lasted, but I lost interest in that after a while too.

Conclusion
I suppose I'll be a gamer for life, but it's hard to be an active gamer when you're taking the GMAT, applying to business school, and dealing with all of the other commitments that come with adult life. Some of the best memories of my life were shared with my friends in a video game, and I recognize that only a hardcore gamer can relate to that statement. The gaming world is being turned upside down right now, so maybe there's hope out there for casual gamers like me 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.
