    I figured I would ask who is playing what games these days? personally I have discovered the joys of dosbox :rock: and I am working my way through the old dos games which have more gameplay then most these days.

    COD5 and BF2142 mostly, just about to go back to BF2 for old time's sake. Current favourite though is Red Alert 2 on my netbook - quick 30 minute fix while the soaps are on and the wife's non the wiser!

    Mainly Cod 5 just for nazi zombies, i'd love if they just sold nazi zombie maps so you dont have to download the multiplayer maps with it. But yeh Nazi zombies with my brother (Skiddywinks)

    Dawn of War 2, Dead space, Red Alert 3, Killing Floor, Left for dead all good games... check reviews before you buy games, if it gets below 8/10 its not worth buying

    Yes!

    I've been playing Syndicate + American Revolt. I had forgotten how incredibly solid American Revolt is, I have no idea how I ever managed to complete it.

    I like single-player, having just gone thru GTA IV and both Crysis' (Cryses?), and currently going through Deus Ex (again) + mods.

    I play L4D online though :thumb:

    You shouldn't be over reliant on reviews. Lurk on forums and watch youtube user videos to get a feel for a game, should the developers not release a demo. Aside from advertising shills (who are usually obvious,) people will jump at the opportunity to voice their opinion on the latest games.


    Games; Left 4 Dead, Day of Defeat (occasionally lurk on the GTFO servers,) Deus Ex (with texture mod,) Mirror's Edge...

    At present i am pretty much all out of games i want to finish (from my own catalog).
    I'm waiting for some games to arrive here (Batman Arkham Asylum, for one), and some more to get released (COD:MW2, Forza 3).
    Right now, all of that is on the back burner, though.

    On the PC side, i am Still playing the quick missions in COD4, and zombie mode from COD5

    Just finished Dead Space, wow what a scary, gory and totally brilliant game. It plays very different from your standard 3rd person shooter and even totally unlike an FPS. I loved the idea of your vital stats being displayed as part of your enviroment suit but the real challenge in my opinion is the fact that standard tactics won't do you much good. If you go for head or body shots you'll end up as shish kebab, you actually have to slice limbs off your targets to both slow them down and finally kill them.

    The last time I played a game that scared me so much was when I first played AvP as a Marine - bloody motion trackers!

    Spent my summer holidays replaying the Xwing series, X-wing v Tie Fighter and X-wing Alliance.
    Also replayed Homeworld and Homeworld 2. Productive summer. :)
    During school time I'll probably revert to quick games of LFD between homework.

    Waiting on my build finance to gather so I can catch up on all the stuff I didn't get to play/finish over the last 2 years, FEAR, GRAW, Bioshock, Crysis etc.
