Hello all,

Who here plays video games on either the PC, Xbox, Playstation or the Wii/Wii U?

I consider myself a PC gamer but have been bored lately with nothing decent coming on the market recently I feel. I really enjoyed games like Skyrim, Doom, Left4dead and many, many others. Anyway the point of this thread is to discuss and recommend games to any other gamers in this community. I highly recommend Skyrim and if difficultly is your thing Dark Souls is good too.

Recommending online games are fine too, I know a few of you guys are into pokemon online from chat. Another good free one if you into old school shooters is Quake Live. For the wii I recommend New Super Mario Bros. Wii and Cursed Mountain. There are also a lot of decent flash games out there too with my favorite being Mario Tetris 3.

Anyway, feel free to recommend stuff, I'll probably play recommendations out of boredom.

i don't play (i am from the pinball generation),
but my son says Shadow of the Colossus is one of the best video games he has ever played.

you didn't mention, but i am sure
you have probably already heard of Red Dead Redemption and Minecraft.

he also really likes this game called Portal.

of course, he is also a huge Zelda fan and he grew up on the various versions throughout the years.
like i said, i do not play, but i do love music, so when the orchestra put on a complete performance of the Zelda Symphony,
we went together.

it was absolutely awesome, and we were both quite impressed.
i loved it, and it was a great day with my son.
i highly recommend anyone check it out.

Hi victor-victim,

I have not played Shadow of the Colossus, I'll look into that. I've played Red Dead Redemption, Portal, Zelda and Minecraft and can recommend those as well. The only downside to Red Dead Redemption is there is no computer version so I had to play it on a friends Xbox. I am also a huge Zelda fan so I'll look into the symphony as well, sound very entertaining. Thank you for you recommendations.

See the Zelda Symphony if you can. I missed it. Do not be like me.

Also, I know you arn't a fan of JRPGs but the Persona series is really amazing!

Love the Zelda games myself. I've played every single console Zelda game several times and most of the Gameboy ones. Other game franchises I'm into include Resident Evil, F.E.A.R., DOOM, Prince of Persia, Assassin's Creed, Bioshock, and Super Mario anything. I just finished beating Super Mario Galaxy 2 on my Wii the other night. The next game I intend to play is Assassin's Creed 3 but I can't really afford to buy a game at the moment so I'll probably play through AC Revelations again first, just to get me caught back up on the story line. Still need to play Bioshock Infinite too. If only I had more time to play video games. frown Peace,

Ken

I'll try it despite my bitter hatred of JRPGs. I just can't get into to the whole turned based final fantasy thing where one persons moves and another person moves afterwards. I am more into real time action, not to say I hate all RPG, I love dragon age. I also enjoyed this turned based game called breath of fire as a child that had some of that final fantasy style game play to it as well.

The gamecube remake version of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4 were awesome but I couldn't get into the original three for some reason. Partly because the graphics are dated even though I normally don't judge a game on graphics alone. I played through all of the F.E.A.R games and they were all good. Doom is epic but I've played that too much I am afraid, I've played it with every mod I've come across and than some. I recommend the brutal doom mod (Google it) if you have the guts for that kinda of violence. I've never played Prince of Persia, Assassin's Creed or Bioshock - I'll look into them, especially Assassin's Creed as I've seen some epic looking video of that game off youtube. Bioshock Infinite caught my eye a little but I need to play the first two cause thats just what type of gamer I am.

I am glad I could help with that victor-victim,

I've played a lot of games through the years. My first "real" console was the Nintendo, which I still have, along with the games Super Mario Bros, Tetris, Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior. I've had almost all in between including Dreamcast, and still actively play and collect games.

I'd say the Final Fantasy series has been my favorite overall, as I prefer RPGs, but there were so many lesser known but great games similar.

More lately I've played the Shin Megami Tensei series, and particularly liked the Digital Devil Sagas (if you like long, grinding games) and the Shadow Hearts. A good vintage game horror/survival RPG with a great story, try the 1st one from SH's, Koudelka. They make film adaptations for games that fall flat, but that could be a great one.

My son and I continue to play many, read all the reviews and upcoming releases, debates on consoles, etc. I like suspense, fighter, MMORPGs and more; PC, console, mobile. Just always have been a gamer and it will continue.

Not to bring back a dead thread but Steam is having a huge sale for Halloween with 75% off some games until Nov. 1st. Thought I would share and hope I don't sound too much like an advertisement lol. Got Bioshock 1 & 2, Alan Wake and Resident Evil 6 myself. Still haven't played Crysis 3 but I want to.

I stopped actively buying/collecting video games and consoles at the PS1 time frame. The years beyond that I spent my time on PC games (Diablo II, The Elder Scrolls - Morrowind, Unreal Tournament). Before the PC days, I spent A LOT of time playing games such as:
NES
- Tetris
- Zelda
- Shadowgate (an old RPG)

Atari 2600
- Pac Man
- Berserk
- Super Mario Brothers (The original)

SNES
- Chrono Trigger
- Castlvania
- Zelda
- Tetris Attack

PS1
- FF8
- Vandalheart
- Diablo I
- GTA 1 and 2

I have a Wii, but my wife has it more for exercise games.
