    I like reading about the scams. Some guy made a player ran bank and walked away with $170k worth of ISK (compared to how much a PLEX costs in ISK).
    Yeah, I really liked EVE. Decided to put it on hold until I get a better computer. That's been about two years...

    Personally, I think it was my favorite of all the FPS.

    I REALLY want to try Mechwarrior Online when I get a rig that can handle it. I have a 6 year old laptop and running everything on low sucks. I still get 30 fps but I feel like I'm getting jipped.

    I started about 3 months ago. I have a Tier VI heavy and could get a Tier VII easily but I'm trying to learn the game a bit more. I think I want to try a med line at VI before I spend the credits. I'm also getting ready to buy a Hummel and won't be long until I can drive a Chaffee around.

    My favorite is Dream Pinball 3D. I used to hold the highest score at the trial version. Now I'm only ranked 49th

Used to play a game called Sopwith which was just a little pixel plane that you dropped pixel bombs on buildings with. Moonbug, Digdug, etc.

    Anyway, my current set of games is mixed. I generally jump between:

    Star Wars: The Old Republic(Just got into this after it went free-to-play)
    World of Warcraft
    Starcraft 2
    Battlefield series(2, BC2, 3)

    Lately I've enjoyed:
    X-Men: Enemy Unknown
    Mechwarrior Online
    Diablo 3

    Anyone else game? MMORPG?
    Most of my game playing has been on the computer, I'd say, as I tend to be a lone gamer. My brother and I had fun playing NES and SNES games together back in the day, though the Macintosh eventually became my gaming platform of choice, especially when I got to college and discovered LAN play Unreal Tournament (original) was the big one back then, and there was also Starcraft. More recently, I've played through the SCII terran campaign (I have also played through the campaigns in Starcraft, in Brood War and in Warcraft III, but not its expansion, though I own it), and I've played a bit with Diablo 3, Doom 3 and numerous others. Back in the 90s, I used to play a bit of Doom, Warcraft II and Marathon, and I also edited the graphics and made maps in Marathon when I discovered how that worked, though just to fiddle around - I've never released any such content to the public.

    I was hooked on World of Warcraft for quite a while as well, though in a very casual and lonely way, and always off-and-on. Now the game has changed too much for my liking, to an extent that my preferred way of playing no longer works! So, meh. I've played it more recently just for Russian language practice, and likewise with SC2 and Diablo 3, because Blizzard is actually pretty good about making different languages available for their games with just one purchase. In fact, if I play any PC game these days, I try to play it in Russian if at all possible, or else in German.

    Speaking of which, Neverwinter Nights is another game I got into for a while, and I did play through most if not all of that as well - the original campaign for sure, and maybe through both of the big official expansions. Also some of Kingmaker. And yes, a lot of that in German. It's too bad that game was never released in Russian! I'd be more tempted to play it again these days if it had been.

    I hate Star Wars: The Old Republic, by the way. I was quite saddened when I paid money for that game, only to discover that it plays like WoW in space. Eww. Not good for a Star Wars game, IMO. I'd much rather it handled like a proper FPS in an MMO world. Why have blasters if you don't even get to aim them yourself? Dumb. And that brings me to... Well, Halo - I've played through that campaign as well, and it's still a tough multiplayer experience to beat - and the Elder Scrolls series. Oh man! I started out with Daggerfall.. I'd play that on an old Power Mac with a freaking Pentium-equipped PC compatibility card, no less! That was a fun way to play, let me tell you. And that game is massive.. I think its game world dwarfs even those of all of the subsequent Elder Scrolls titles. Its only downsides were the bugs (like in every Elder Scrolls game) and the old pseudo 3D, blocky DOS-era graphics.

    Oh, I was also a flight sim fan in the 90s, back when I had Hellcats and A-10 Attack! and A-10 Cuba! on my Mac. Did I ever have fun just derping around Germany and Cuba in a Hog! My only regret with those games is that I've never had the opportunity to play them multiplayer. A-10 Cuba! is capable, but other players were hard to come by even when it was a fairly new title.

    EVE is a neat looking game, but I for one am not prepared to pay a subscription to play it. I'm fed up with subscription model MMOs in general, in fact. Not that I've gotten more into the freebies, but then they tend to be lower quality than the paid games.

    Now, if The Elder Scrolls Online is released without a subscription required... You can likely count me in. I'd put down money once to buy the game and be able to play it indefinitely without paying more. I don't care if they want to sell perks to try and make a profit from players, because I can easily choose not to buy such things. Of course, if the game ends up being too crippled without buying junk, that'll likely drive me away too..

    I played around making Doom maps when that game first came out. They were called WADS which as a kid always made me think of a snot ball. My maps were never very interesting, usually just long hallways with random textures, and usually a doorway and a elevator(because I was figuring out how to get those to work). One time I just made a map filled with imps and a ledge where I stood with the gattling gun and mowed them all down.

    I played Wow off and on for close to 8 years. I finally think I may be done with the game though. I saw them strip away just about everything that ever gave the game depth in the interest of appealing to the "casual" player. I was not hardcore by any means, I was never in a raiding guild or anything like that, but I also wasn't so dumb that a talent tree that let me design my own character was vexxing. That game is basically a vending machine now. Log on, put in your quarter, get your old sandwich, rinse and repeat. I wish they'd stop designing those games for the lowest common denominator.

    I can see your point there. I probably never would have picked this game up if it hadn't gone free to play. As it stands, I do have to say that I've enjoyed playing it so far(Been about two months). The storyline and zone quests alone are enough to keep it interesting even if it were a single player game. I think they expanded and evolved a lot of systems from Wow as well, though the "Wow in space" analogy is certainly accurate. I sincerely doubt I'll play this game even a fraction as long as I did Wow but for now I am enjoying it. Have a level 50 Jedi Knight and am working on a Trooper now.

    My wife and I watch The Big Bang Theory and one of the episodes featured this game. Sitting on the couch, when they showed 10 seconds of them playing the actual game I got excited and turned to my wife and said "That's the game I play. Look darling, that's the game I play!"

    I used to play Wing Commander(the original), F117 Stealth Fighter, F-15 Strike Eagle III, and Ace of(over?) the Pacific. I haven't really read anything about good flight sims over the last decade though. Are there any, other than the Microsoft one?

    I may be on the side of the angels...but don't think for one second that I am one of them.

    If you voted for Trump or Clinton, you don't get to complain about government corruption, dishonesty, and unethical behavior. You just voted for it.

    Republicans, be glad that when Trump was deciding which party would take him that yours was the most desperate. He could have easily ended up a Democrat and you would have had to suck it up and vote for a D to get your "anti-establishment" "uprising".

    I just finished up Hitman: Absolution, fun game with a decent story, and it looked sweet on my gaming rig. Right now I fired up Dawn of War: Soulstorm, lots of fun and gets pretty hectic. I was very disappointed with Dawn of War II though. If anyone has steam add me: Guncrazy56.

    That describes ElderScrolls Skyrim..............pay once and play through cloud. Either alone or as a multi-player platform on-line

    I just got "Wings Over Flanders Fields"...an air combat game set in WWI. It's a Combat Flight Sim 3 addon...
    highly immersive. Fly too low, the infantry on the ground will shoot at you...it's not just a vacant battlefield below, the AI is pretty good.

    Depending on settings, you can play as a true flight sim with accurate physics..or more arcadey by switching off all the various bells and whistles.

    Multi-player is also fun to play, individual dogfighting, or as part of a team simulating actual air battles which took place.

    I rank it as the best WWI era sim I've played, better than Rise of Flight, which although a technically purer game in terms of simulation, is not nearly
    as immersive.

    They've done their homework with this game right down to what squadron used what planes and planes used in specific missions.
    Whether you've got a simple mission like shooting down observation balloons, strafing ground emplacements, or a sky full of aircraft in a giant furball....it's addictively fun.

    A war often neglected in console and PC games, "The Great War"...WW1..is the perfect setting for gamers to learn a history lesson...or two.

    I may do some flight simming or dirt from time to time but RTS is my thing.
    When we can see a better future for our nations children we can focus on the non issue; issues.
