I loved Quake 3! Quake 2 was actually my first computer game and (get this) my first experiance with Eva. I was like 14 or 13. We were playing in this store where you could use the computers for half an hour at a time and sombody was running around as EVA-01. A friend of mine was all "ZOMG EVA!!" and I had NO idea.

Games where you run around shooting your friends are SO fun. Love Halo 2.

Favorite games of mine are Zelda:OoT, Threads of Fate, and the DMC and MGS series. DMC and MGS in particular.

Oni - Major inspiration source to my manga/computer game project Raikiri.

Ground Control. It was the sole source of inspiration to my "War of a New Dawn" fic, and one of the best RTS's I've played.

Pac-man - The game that brought me into videogames.

Zelda - Altough they're all good (OK, maybe not the GB ones), Ocarina of Time is still my favorite.

Lylat Wars (Starfox 64 in non-europe) - Awesomeness.

Jedi Knight 1, 2 and Academy - Lightsabers! Jay!

ZangbandTk - One of the most hardcore RPG's I've ever played. Nah, strike the "one of."

Little Fighter 2 - Stop staring at me like that.

Unreal Tournament - Kicks the asses of both CS and Quake.

Edit: I forgot some!

Final Fantasy III, VII, VIII and X - Wow. Just... Wow.

Chrono Trigger - The characters are designed by Akira Toriyama. What could possibly go wrong?

Tales of Phantasia - Best. RPG. Ever. Play. This. Now!

Star Ocean - Awesome. It doesn't beat ToP, but it's pretty darn close.

I had my ass handed to me with Space Invaders and Missile Command, and so gave up and laughed at the guys with Defender thumb.

Many years later I proved that this was not a fluke by getting hammered in xpilot; and many years later kept on the losing streak by being humiliatingly pathetic in network games of Counterstrike.

The only things along this line I played and enjoyed were really early DOS-based flight sims which would land the plane for you. I probably racked up many more hours being not very good at CivII and Alpha Centauri.

Knights of the Old Republic 2: Alright, so it didn't have an ending, the rest of it is top-notch, and I can't wait for the third. Even if I have to get a 360.

Unreal Championship 2: I'm an Unreal whore, and, IMO Unreal has never been better than this. Big guns, axes, swords, and sexy vampire chicks. Win.

Baldurs Gate 2: One of the most immersives RPGs ever, and loads of rerplay value. I'm playing it trhough for about the thirteenth time now, and it's been different each time.

Final Fantasy Tactics: Strategy and RPG. Ok, so it's WAY more linear than most FFs, but it makes up for it in the job system.

Final Fantasy 8: My favourite FF. Best plot of all of them that I've played, almost all of the characters are realistic and the Junction/GF system has only ever been matched by the Spheregrid.

The Punisher: Third person action with many, many explosives and guns. An intresting variation on bullet time (Slaughter mode! Bullet time with night vision and you can go slicing and dicing with dual combat knives; stab or throw them into the enemies skull: you choice!) and the beautifully sadistic interrogation system. In no other game have I been able to scare a russian mercenary into telling me where the nuke is before drilling a hole through his eye and into his brain.

I still play any number of the old Lucasfilm Games/LucasArts adventure games:

Secret of Monkey Island 1 and 2
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Loom
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
etc.

Then, of course, there's the classic simulators:
Civilization 2
Sim City 2000
Most other Maxis simulations

I have owned a few consoles in my time:
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask
Shenmue (once I finish it)
Crazy Taxi
All of the Genesis Sonic games

I'm terrible at RTS games but enjoyed Warcraft II and the Command & Conquer series.

And, of course, Katamari Damacy.

7th child, I think I am in love. :oops: Those are some of my most favorite games as well.

I am also sports nut so I love Tennis (the Sega one which I forget the name of) as well Madden Football and Gran Tourismo. I also loved Xenogear and Xenosaga. I still have Xenosaga 2 waiting for me to play. I just need the time to play....ugh.

I'm really out of games these days. I used to be a huge PlayStation geek back before I started this site. Eva has more or less consumed my excess energy in that time. ^^;;;

Lately, I've been trying to play more games.

I've been getting back into a bunch of series, such as Tekken, Armored Core, and Final Fantasy. My current favorite is Katamari Damacy. I'm also a big Tetris whore, Alexey Pazhitnov owns my soul. I'm also a big fan of anything designed by Shigeru Miyamoto. I'm also addicted to the Super Mario Advance 2 edition of Super Mario World and Mario Brothers Classic. And I'm also a big arrow stomper, I'll take any of you bitches in Dance Dance Revolution anywhere anytime.

For some reason I doubt that statement of yours
I have too much anime, yet it's not enough. Anime Addict, if it were a drug; I'd be dead.

B4 my sega, u had mortal kombat 3 and ultimate mortal kombat 3 on that stupid 8bit video game set of yours. U always brought it over to my place on fridays and I always beat ur sorry but cuz I used the same unblockable move over and over and over..... so doubt if you want to, but I enjoyed geting u in the corner and raping ur sorry butt!

Then the sega came and I had even more fun.

Then u got ur playstation and betrayed everything that was holy in the world of gaming.

We went our seperate ways, I got into computers.

And a few years later we'r having this arguement...

8) Proove me wrong!
