Tribes 2: I reopened this sucker up, dug up my old ID and had a good-'ol time playing some D. The original Tribes is the game I've played the longest of any game, and is the originator of my alias "FortKnox" (although I'm not as good a defender now as I was back in my tribes heyday). The downside is that I havne't played it in a loooong time so I need a lot of time to vamp back up.
Battlefield 1942: I think this would be a much more fun game if either I got a group of people I know together for a game (slashdot crowd??) or if I played in a clan where its much more organized. I've played it a bit (and the desert combat mod), but it started getting a bit monotonous to me, so I stopped playing.
Starcraft: Definately a fun game to play you and your friends vs the computer. Not so fun to play with strangers, though. Most of the guys online are on top of you before you even setup a marine. Just isn't much fun. So anyone in the crowd still play starcraft and would be interested in a game?
The two games I don't own, but may be willing to buy:
Max Payne: (The first one). I never played it, but heard the story and gameplay are fantastic. Plus, if I enjoy it, the second one is out and is dropping in price.
Rise of Nations: Brian Reynolds (dude that worked with Sid Meier on Civ2 and Alpha Centauri) makes a RTS game with turn-based elements. I heard this is a ground breaking RTS that prevents rushing and mindless attacking and adds a huge dimension of strategy and tactics. Anyone tried this one, yet??
So, since Joey sleeps at 7:30 and the wife usually has 1 hour worth of TV on a weeknight she likes to watch (and are shows I don't care for) I have the time to dedicate to one game. Just have to choose from my list.....
