    About time we had a thread like this. PC, console or whatever.

    On my PC:

    NHL 2000
    World Cup 2002
    Driver
    Doom (OpenGL)
    Virtual Pool 2
    Worms World Party
    Half-life: Blueshift

    As you can tell, I'm stuck with an ancient rig, Cyrix and TNT 2, so I'm enjoying the classics. My PC runs pretty good though for what it is. I just go to a friend's house, cause he's got all the latest games. Now I've just got to convince him to replace his Geforce 4 MX. Finally get to play GTA 3 and Mafia tonight.

    Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
    Vice City
    Elite Force II
    True Combat (QIII Mod)
    SNES Roms

    On the console front I'm trying to beat halo on legendary, and occassionally I'll play a little madden 2003.

    Milamber, you should go back and play some of the older console classics via emulators.

    Wacraft, Warcraft, Warcraft, a little more Warcraft (if you can't tell, I really like the expansion)...oh, and a touch of Wolfenstein.

    Enlighten me on this enemy territory deal. Until now, I haven't heard of it.

    It was originally going to be an expansion, but the developers decided to release it as a completely free standalone; it weighs in at a little over 200 megs. It's pretty fun. Theres no singleplayer and it only has 6 maps by default but a level editor was released recently so more maps will be available sooner or later.

    I've heard great things about KOTOR. Anyone played Mafia? It's pretty cool.

    All I have to say about KotOR is, holy sh!t!
    I've spent about 11 hours on it already and I just got it yesterday. It's not your most open-ended RPG, but that doesn't really matter when it is so cooooool. I recommend it to anyone who has an Xbox, or for that matter, if you want an excuse to go out and buy one.

    Its good that it turned out better than Star Wars Galaxies. Bugs galore in that game. Once they've patched it to death and released the space expansion though, it should a great game.

    Oh. Okay. A starwars game. Personally, I've been eyeballing rogue squadron III. From the looks of it, you can pilot Atat's and chicken walkers. Which sounds excellent.

    Anyone heard of Morrowind, the Elder Scrolls III? I never play PC games (well, not since I was about 15), but my brother just bought it and I actually tried it out a bit. Seems pretty fun. Not sure if I have enough time to spend on it though... That's my main problem with most games. The time that I could spend on games is usually spend on books.

    Morrowind had a lot of good ideas, but the crappy battles really hurt it. I loved the open-ended feel, but the game somehow felt tedious. I didn't stick with it for as long as I maybe should have, though.

    I was pretty busy on the weekend, so I didn't get much of a chance to give KOTOR much playing time. But I shoul dbe able to get into it this week. Looks like a very cool game.

    I've played some Rise of Nations at home...and I usually get 30-45 mins of RTCW: Enemy Territories time at lunch here at work.

    I play Shogun (Total War) a lot as it's the only version I have at the moment :(
    Hitman 2 I go back to a lot as well as Severance (or Blade of Darkness in the US), Max Payne (got loads of mods for it)
    And Virtual Pool 3 is good fun.

    Right now I'm about 10 hours into Morrowind, and I'm loving it. The open-ended aspect is very well done-you can basically go anywhere you want to. There are TONS of sidequests. In fact, I would say the that the sidequests for the different guilds and factions make up a majority of the game. The only problem I have with it is the battle system, which sucks majorly, and the fact that you can be a bit overwhelmed with things to do in the beginning.
