> What's everyone playing these days?

You read my mind, I was just about to post a similiar topic.

PC:
Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends - I've only just started this gane and I'm not sure if I like it or not.
GRAW - Stuck at the very beginning. I really don't like this game but everyone else seems to love it, so I'm sticking it out.
Oblivion - I don't play this nearly as often as I used to but I still play it every so often.

I also just finished Half-Life 2 again. What a fantastic game.

Console:
NiGHTS (Saturn) - My friend and I just remembered that this game had a 2 player mode so we are working to beat the game. Great, great game.
Scarface (Xbox) - Better than I thought it would be. Fun for an hour or two.
Ikaruga (Dreamcast) - Same friend and I are also working to beat this game. I've beaten it by myself, but it is a lot harder with two people.

Castlevania: SOTN - I had only played the Saturn version before, and I'm playing it on the PSX now. Very interesting differences, but still mostly the same game.

Blazing Star - Best horizontal scrolling shmup I've ever played.

Super Ghouls & Ghosts - Thank you sir, may I have another...

Mostly just The Warriors for PS2, with the occasional serving of Marvel vs Capcom 2 for the Dreamcast.

I seriously recommend The Warriors. One of the best beat-em ups of present days I have played. Great game.

Well, a few weeks ago (which might be over a month now, I'm not sure) I started playing Psychonauts again for a few hours. And then a few months ago I played some Ninja Gaiden Black for a while (until I got tired of getting my ass beat on Very Hard).

Just out of curiosity, are some of you actually in the process of playing through like three games at a time? 'Cause that just seems insane. I have a hard time focusing enough to finish one game.

The only thing on my list that I'm actually playing through the story on is GTA. On everything else, I just play multiplayer or some free-play mode.

Final Fantasy XII

Majora's Mask

Those are the five I'm still regularly chipping away at. There are a whole screed of others I've effectively given up on.

I was playing this game recently. I upgraded to the best teeth/fins/body etc and ran into a shark that beat the shit out of me. Really. Like he was way faster than I was and he chipped 13 HP off me per bite. I am no longer playing this. :P

Heh, yeah that game is a trip.

The idea of it is pretty clever, but the implimentation ended up being really poor. The game essentially turns into a level-fest like some bad RPG. Most levels are boring and linear, and the powerups (err.. evolutions) aren't very creative.

One of those games that could have been really awesome... but ended up sucking.

Quake 4 (PC). It's a little choppy because of my old CPU and not so fast video card, but it's playable, and I really enjoy it. :) I'm not one for FPS, but this one just SUCKED ME IN from the start. I guess it's the story. :D

Wait till you get to the part where (SPOLIERS KINDA) you get turned into a Strogg. Fantastic scene and makes the rest of the game very interesting, as you can now read all the writing in the base and whatnot.

As well you should be.

It's a fun game, here's to hoping it copycats Metroid enough so I get to see the main-babe in a skimpy outfit at the ending. ;)

It's amazing how you can play an unreleased PS3 game on a PS2 now... <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

(hint: XIII = 13)

U2 is quite possibly the shittiest band of all time. I wish they all died before forming so the planet would be spared of their pretentious mediocrity.
