What systems does everyone have, and what are you currently playing?

I'm on Vita/PS3/PS4, and my PSN is 'Fishooked', presently still dumping a boatload of hours into Destiny at the moment.

I have a PS4 to keep me out of the bar. Most every game that comes through blows. I enjoyed Shadows of Mordor. It lets you be a serial killer. Call of Duty is Call of Duty.

 

I've played some of Shadows Of Mordor a bit, very fun game and totally flew under a lot of people's radar. 

 

There is a lot coming out in the next couple of months/next year. Personally Im looking forward to The Witcher3 & The Division.

Sega Genesis, PS2 and PS3 here. WreckingCrew73 on PSN, and still playing GTA Online, but getting fed up of Rockstar's continual attempts at deliberately f**king it up.

 

No plans to upgrade to PS4. Hell, I'd probably buy that Colecovision TV thing before I get a PS4 - our old Coleco ruled.

 

Cool, I'll add you via PSN if that's ok. I kept repeatedly getting owned on GTA Online, probably because of my poor driving and shooting skills. 

 

I love my PS4 though, if anything for the new DS4 controller is head and shoulders about the DS3.

It's amazing the difference in speed and fluidity in which in boots up vs my PS3. Still going to hang onto the PS3 though, my kids are bogarting it playing Minecraft on it non stop.

 

So far I've only played Wolfenstein, Destiny, TLOU Remastered (finally got a chance to play Left Behind), and Shadows Of Mordor for a bit.

I'm a video game OG

 

remember pong, space invaders on a floppy for a PC, donkey kong, pacman, asteroids, defender, etc etc

 

The worst addiction I had was the 1st gran turismo on a playstation.  A guy at the store I got if from told me to get a controller for it.  It was like a pistol, the trigger was the gas, it had a wheel where the hammer was, and a button for the brakes and shifting

 

best $15 I ever spent.  I played it until 4 am 2 nights straight and got my super license the first weekend.  

 

anyone remember the PIX game on channel 11 after school ?

 

PIX     PIX   PIX    PIX 

 

 

Lol! Kids would be screaming "Pixpixpixpix" and some dude in the studio would just slap the button.

 

 

Good god, lmao - yes, I remember this

I'm almost embarrassed to admit how much I played this sh*tty game on my Sega Genesis.

I remember trying to run the ball in this game was impossible.

PS4 and XBox One - Dhyre

 

Playing Destiny mostly (PS4) and picked up Halo (XBox One).  Waiting on Little Big Planet to drop in a few days

 

Also am a little bit of a PC gamer.

 

GTFO - sending you a friend request now on PSN for Destiny - what level are you at, and have you tried this Vault Of Glass Raid yet?

It was always about GT2 for me. Still have my memory card with the 100 cars, including all the available BTCC cars, and the almighty Escudo. I remember hating the endurance races, which was weird, because in the first couple of PS1 Formula 1 games, I was always doing full length races/championships, still I thought they were too long...

 

Then years later got GT5, and lo and behold, the Le Mans 24 hours.

 

And F1 '97 is the greatest F1 game ever. Nothing has ever come close.

 

 

I wanted so much to like the GT games, but I realized I was such a sh*tty driver that I had to stop playing.

As bad as the games were, I liked Test Drive 4 & 5. :cringe:

 

 

 

 

Some of the early Need For Speed games were fun as hell too.

What's the scariest video game on the market, ever?

 

Ever? I guess that's tough to say, as it's largely subjective. 

 

For me the early Resident Evil and Silent Hill1-3 gave me the heebie jeebies.

I've tried Resident Evil (like 5 or 6 or something) and it was first person shooter type and I hated it. Super cool set up and story line but the actual "playing" made me nauseous. 

 

Are any of the Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Dead Space, Alone in the Dark or Halo games NON-first person shooter??

 

Resident Evil 1 & 2 aren't first person, and they will probably make you crap your pants. Same goes for Silent Hill 1-3.

 

The Last Of Us is totally worth is as tom shane said. I'm replaying it now as we speak.

Anyone picking up these new titles? Goddamn from last year at this time it was a famine, now there are too many games at once

 

GTAV

Far Cry4

Dragon's Age: Inquisition

 

I've been determined to sink time into Destiny but frankly it's becoming too much of a grind. The Vault Of Glass raid is a major pain in the ass if you don't have good weapons or gear. I've been stuck at level 27 for weeks now.

 

Anyway here's some cheat codes for GTAV on PS4/XB1:

With the voice acting?

 

"Stop it! .... Don't...open that door!"

 

Yeah, it's pretty terrible I'll admit. Nothing like the time & resources put into this aspect of games today. Seriously I had to play a lot of those games during the daytime lol.

What they lacked in voice acting they made up for in game music for sure though. 

 

Edit: I still remember this music from RE1, still creeps me out.

Another game series I've enjoyed is American McGee's Alice. It's not exactly horror, but it's a bit creepy. 

 

I've played a bit of Alice:Madness Returns, and I enjoyed it but never finished it, too much of a backlog of other games I suppose. 

There may be plans for a 3rd game but I think McGee is going to see how his Alice in Otherland shorts pan out first.

Far Cry4

Dragons Age:Inquisition

 

Also **** you to game companies for releasing all of these games at once, including the next-gen GTAV

Dragon age Inquisition looks fun, but I don't have a next gen console, so there goes that.

 

It's also available on the PS3 & 360 I believe.

Ah, need to check it out then. Thanks, waiting on game fly for  Shadow of Mordor currently. 

 

Cool - I've actually been playing that on and off - I don't want to get to attached to it since I borrowed it from my library, of all places, lol. I have to bring it back next week, they dont let you extend renewals if someone else is waiting for it. That game has been a lot of fun so far, I think you'll like it. All I will say is that riding Caragors is loads of fun. 

 

 

 

Only a few hours in but dragon age inquisition is pretty fun and is gorgeous. Good judge would be if you ever liked or enjoyed dragon age origins or skyrim it'd be a safe bet you'd like this one. The game is just massive in scale. Haven't tried multiplayer yet though. Playing on pc not on console fwiw.

 

I'm not a big RPG guy, but I did sink hundreds of hours into Skyrim, so I think I will like this one as well.

Wow, never knew libraries allowed you to get games.

 

Same here, and I hadn't set foot in one in a long time. I guess I'm lucky our town library is very well funded, loads of donations too, etc. I hadn't set foot in one in years, until the kids got older (school projects etc), and I was blown away.

Extensive DVD movies and TV series on DVDs, and I was shocked to see games in there too. Not a crazy amount, but they had a lot of Wii/DS/360/PS3 games, most from donations. I was shocked that they started carrying XB1/PS4 games to boot. Can't complain about borrowing them for free, it's a nice 'try before you buy' type deal, like having an extended 2-week demo.

I get nauseous playing those games too.

I recently started gaming again. Mostly for Madden. My nephew plays and whip his ass online all the time.

When I bought Madden, I asked the nerd what games are like Fable because that was the last game I was into before I stopped playing games. They pointed me to God of War. Good sh*t, but I've beaten them all already.

Anyone know of similar games?

 

God of War? That's hardly an RPG, not that I know much about RPGs....but for which system?

 

Anyway I found this for you, it sounds like you need something in 3rd person view though

I have PS3. I don't know you mean it's hardly RPG. Role playing game?

All I know is I like that type of a game where your character grows as the game goes on and you kill sh*t and do stuff to get past levels and you see the whole body and not just the first person view.

Thanks for the link!

 

Come on man, keep up with the nerdspeak :P 

 

I'd highly recommend Skyrim as well, as I have sunk hundreds of hours into it - it's mainly first person view, but there is a 3rd person view you can switch to. Along the same lines Im a huge Fallout fan, so I'd recommend Fallout3 & Fallout:New Vegas too - all 3 games can be had on the cheap for sure. You can always check out gamplay videos on youtube before you decide. 

 

Today I broke down and got Dragon's Age:Inquisition, after anguishing over COD: Advanced Warfare, FarCry4, and GTAV. 

I'll post my impressions soon enough.

2014 Video Game Awards nominees - 

 

linky 

 

http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Game-Awards-2014-Nominees-Revealed-68511.html

 

 

The Game Awards 2014 won't be stingy with trophies. Today producer Geoff Keighley revealed that 21 awards will be given out during the event's first year. 

Like spiritual predecessor Spike VGX, The Game Awards recognizes the best games in the past year across several genres and platforms. It also asks gamers to vote on the upcoming game they're most excited for. Voice actors are once again up for awards, though male and female performers are now competing for the same crown. 

The Game Awards doesn't only recognize the folks making the games, though. Instead, they're also recognizing the culture around games. For example, the top video personalities will compete for the awkwardly named "Best Trending Gamer." eSport teams and individual players will also be recognized.

So, I got Dragons Age and New Vegas. Definitely not what I remember Fable being like and not like the God of War games. Don't like them. Make me nauseous and it's too little action and too many scenes and what not....pretty boring (no offense).

I need more action.

 

If you're going to roll with New Vegas, I would highly recommend getting Fallout3: Game Of The Year Edition first, if you haven't played it already, and it can be had dirt cheap.

Maybe I'm biased because it's one of my favorite games of all time.

 

You can swtich from first to 3rd person mode in it as well, although I usually play it in first person mode. There is a lot of exploration, so you're not constantly fighting enemies/shooting all the time. Same goes for New Vegas, although some of the enemies are harder in Vegas.

The only thing with Uncharted is that's not really an RPG-type of game, but they are fun as hell, and third person view.

I loved the Tomb Raider remake, that game does allow for unlockables and upgradeables for your weapons and so forth. 

Game is great looking on the PS3 as well, and of course, staring at Lara's hooters is a nice perk. 

 

Regarding Fallout 3 & Vegas....well you certainly won't have to walk very far or explore for long without running into something to shoot.

Each kill gives you XP in which to unlock other perks,

 

I don't know if I've posted this, but Conan's Clueless Gamer series is hysterical, he's done quite a bit of them, here is his from Tomb Raider

Been playing Inquisition. I take it it's one of those games that's boring until you level up your team after 10 hours?

 

i've been playing it as well, the problem is I keep getting distracted by Destiny.

It's the game I love to hate.

 

Leveling up is a major grind, the story leaves a lot to be desired,  but the gunplay is just so good.

I was warned that Destiny sucks.

 

 

There's a lot of people saying that. The problem is it never delivered on the sheer amount of hype that was created for the game.

I never had an XBox, so I never played a minute of Halo, so I guess this is what it was like.

 

The story falls flat and isn't engaging, it's not open-world as they made it out to be, missions and enemies are repetetive. 

My only major beef at the moment is the endless grind to takes to acquire certain things to upgrade to the next level.

 

On the plus side the worlds and environments look gorgeous, the gunplay is fast and responsive, and multiplayer is sh*tloads of fun.

Overall it's pretty solid, just not worth a day 1 purchase I think.

I'm finally getting around to playing Resident Evil: Revelations. I'm about halfway through and really enjoying it so far. Looking forward to unlocking all the crazy irrelevant costumes they have.

XBox One Game help needed please.

 

I bought the Xbox One and the new Madden because I live on my own now and figured I'd enjoy it. However, I'm not a gamer- the last video game console I truly enjoyed for anything other than Madden is N64, and SNES before that. I loved the Marios and DKs, F-Zero, Star Fox, Super Smash, Goldeneye...basically back when there were fewer buttons and each button had only one responsibility.

 

Other than that, Sonic was cool on Genesis, I enjoyed Driver (1), Rayman (1), and all the Tony Hawk/Cool Border/BMX games for PS1. 

 

So basically, I don't really do video games. But, I got this free $60 gift card from gamestop and figure I might as well try something new for xbox one. After doing a sh*tton of research at work the past three days, I've decided on Forza Horizon 2.

 

My bro plays COD and all of those first person shooter games, and I've tried them but I straight up suck at them which is why I'm even hesitating. So my question is, should I go with Forza, or do you guys have anything else to recommend given my background with video games?

 

Seeing as though I didn't really play most of those titles, except for Driver, which was a sh*tload of fun but glitchy as hell... I don't really have any recommendations for you really.

Have you tried any of the GTA games? In GTAV there is a sh*tload to do, and it's not in first-person mode. You'll definitely get your money's worth for sure.

Fish! Great to see a familiar face! Coincidentally, most of the people I asked regarding recommendations given my background referred me to GTAV. Did some research on it, seems like it got incredible reviews. Sounds like a must-play! Thanks!

 

There really is a lot to do in this game besides driving and killing people. There are races if that's your thing. There is a ****ton of minigames inside the game, you can go out and explore and hunt, skydive, cycle, all kinds of sh*t. It's definitely a good time sink for the money. Only reason I didn't pick it up yet is I got it for the PS3, will wait for a price drop before I give it another go on the PS4.

Couldn't have since there is only 1 L

 

If you use the Playstation app for friend requests it gives you a list of close matches, so I picked the closest one lol.
