    Well, I play a few games online. But not like "counter strike" or "World of War Craft", I do play go here, www.dragongoserver.net and I play Halo 2 still, but other than that the only thing I play is with peopls minds on myspace cause its evil. And occasionally I play online tetris

    I like to play Counterstrike Source and Day of Defeat. I went out and got an AMD 64 x2 system with an nVidia 7600 GT card just so I could play more. Now I find out the extra speed gives me motion sickness, so I can only play for about 5 minutes. If I play for 10 minutes I feel like I was out drinking really heavy, major miserable feeling.

    Cool! :-D What kind of games do you create?

    I have some idea's for modding Freeciv (opensource civilization clone), to make it a massive unending game. But the guy who wanted to help me with it has disappeared, so I'm not sure whether this project will get anywhere..Problem is, I have a lot of idea's but no coding experience whatsoever :?

    Anyway, besides playing Freeciv I'm a fanatic Battlefield 2 gamer. Great game 8)

    a flash game is a game you make on macromedia flash MX, and can be played by anyone with a Flash player plugin without downloading it, and windows comes with the latest flash player.


    were can i download your games? and does it cost money?

    I am, though I'm "between games" at the moment. I used to play Everquest (had a 70 bard), but my friends quit for WoW. So I switched to WoW after a while, had a 60 priest there, but WoW is plain boring. It's fun leveling up and tremendously boring once you hit 60. So I quit that.
    I'm going to play Vanguard when it comes out.

    YES! i don't know why all of my friends play that game, i myself could never stand RPG's and prefer shooter, but its all they ever talk about anymore. quite amazing since i thought they'd never get over HALO, i can't believe i have not played that game (i guess thats what i get for having a playstation).

    but WoW is seriously in contention for world domination.

    Well I love RPGs. They are by far my favorite types of games. I like MMORPGs a lot as well. But WoW is just plain not fun, and I have a very hard time figuring out why people enjoy it beyond the early stages.

    i've asked people why but the only response was, "cause its really cool".
    i don't play RPG's often enough to enjoy them, the only good one i've played was Final Fantasy VII, and i never got to finish that due to circumstances beyond my control.

    other than that i don't know of any other RPG's that are great, everyones playing WoW so thats all i will be told.

    Yes! :P Final Fantasy 7 is pretty awsum but not as good as Final Fantasy 8 which in it's turn is not in the same league as Final Fantasy 10 or 10-2. As you can see if you liked FF7 then you will like FF10 and there is a new game coming out, Final Fantasy 12 (XII) which is an online RPG game that is supposed to unrival all the other games in the final fantasy series... I'm an addicted FF fan and have finished FF7, 8 and 10 numerous times. i recommend everyone try out these games (on playstation 1 and 2). Can't wait for Final Fantasy XIII

    i recall hearing something about a FF7 tech demo on PS3.
    they should really consider re-releasing that game instead, with a few alterations ofcourse.

    There is no such thing of world domination, it has never happened and will never happen. Not even in a game
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    I have played Everquest for a short while, go to lvl 10 and got bored.
    Ive played Starcraft for several years, I consider it a clasic, but that was some time ago.
    I've also played BattleZone 2, on and off for several years, an excellent game but which unfortunately ended up appealing to a very small audience (a mix of FPS and RTS thought to appeal to both fans, but most FPS fans though there was to much strategy/brain required, while most RTS fans though there was too much action). But again I havent played in at least a year and since It's been out for a long while now its starting to be dated.
    Ive played Eve Online for about two hours, one hour spent staring at a starfield as the ship was travelling, and another hour looking at an energy beam mining asteroids (being motionless and stuck in bumper to bumper rush hour traffic is more entertaining).

    The last game I've played was the long awaited and hyped Half-Life 2, which although was very well made and interesting because of the physics, was rather linear, short compared to HL, and the "Steam" orwellian-control-contraption-marketing-ploy was the straw that broke my camel's back, Im not buying a Valve product again no matter how over-hyped the game is.


    I havent played any videogames in the past year, no recent game I've seen interests me at this point. :?

    I played FFX probably about 70% through, but I quit. Most newer RPGs have lost something, imo. FFX:
    1) Is too linear
    2) Is easy
    3) Has too much video/watching
    4) Has those damn temples that in no way can be considered fun

    That all just bored me with the game. It's next on my list to "give another try" and at least beat this time though.

    WoW has become sooo popular lately. ALL of my friends play it and personally, I don't see the big deal. :? Although, BBC recently released an interesting article about how users were complaining due to congestion within the game and having to wait forever before it logs you in. It may actually still be in the archives.
