Was gonna start a adventure game thread, then decided on old games and then thought fuck it... we have a "what are you..." thread for everything else.

----------

Just finished playing through Kings Quest 1 (1990 EGA release), Space Quest 1(VGA) and Space Quest 3.

Was gonna do them in order but I really loved SQ3 as a kid so I jumped to that one. Gonna work though SQ2 now. Got hold of the Sierra collections for KQ and SQ. Fuck these games were cool. Can't wait to score the Larry collection, Quest for Glory and Police Quest.

Also finally finished Myst III - Exile. Im on an old game kick. Wanna finish all the games I use to cream over as a child but never had the patience to stick at.

Even my gf got a bit nostalgic and played through God of Thunder 1, 2, and 3. She nearly fucked her laptop getting all shitty at the game and bashing the keys.

----------

So punkas... what you playing?

Currently playing Dead Space and Fable 2.
Then when I've finished with those I'll probably go out and buy Fallout 3.

mm, discworlds got nice graphics n shit, but the puzzles are (surprise surprise!) really obtuse.
I wish they hadn't ruined Monkey Island by going 3D
someone should remake that one in 2d, cuz plot-wise it wasn't too awful.. but the 3d sucked weiners and made the game drag

as far as Sierra goes, do not miss Gabriel Knight : Sins of the Fathers. awesome as fuck. the other two are good too.. 3rd suffers from the same problem of being a lot slower due to being 3d (mean in terms of your character walking around and stuff, not cuz I have a poopants computer)...

GTA IV (PS3) - Awesome!
Far Cry 2 (PC)- Boring, just like Crysis but not set on an island. Will probably uninstall.
Disgaea (DS) - Fuckin' awesome. I love turn based strategy and anime so a combination of the two is perfect for me.
Fallout 3 (PC) - Fuck this rules but I really should finish GTA IV first.

As of tomorrow, Gears of War 2 - can't wait to play this. I'll get Fallout 3 eventually, but it'll be old hat by the time I do.

I enjoyed Fable 2, but I have pretty much no interest in replaying it. Ever.

What'd you reckon of Mirror's Edge bro? Kinda weird eh..combat system looked pretty dodge, all seems a little rigid for a game which is in a such a free-roaming environment...

Super Smash Bros. was fucking killer!!

Now playing - Bioshock on PC
Halo deathmatches with my feral flatmate
Tekken 5 heaps as

Been alittle high recently. Kinda using them as distractions from doing anything considered "productive", so I guess as an alternative to punkas.

Im thinking maybe 10 to 15 hours. Which I imagine while high for me right now is not really anything special by other peoples standards.

I also have a girlfriend who has a nice silent way of making me feel shit for spending more time on the computer than with her though. This limits my time somewhat.
