New games?

So what are people playing nowadays? I tried Jedi Knight Outcast, keeps my interest for a whole of 10 minutes (controls are only decent, not as smooth as UT, etc). Aquanox is plain boring. Comanche 4 a yawner as well, though some of the graphics are good. So far the only one I like and probably will try a few more times is Nascar 2002 season, very lifelike (almost tempted me to buy a wheel to play it).

Um...Starcraft? Actually, I haven't been playing ANY games lately. What the crap have I been doing with my time? I've started a few console games of late (Ace Combat 4 for PS2, and Eternal Darkness for GC). I think right now I've been getting back into some Diablo 2 LOD, and Heavy Metal FAKK2. Other than that, no new games have interested me. They're all either MMORPGS, or just rehashed of what's already out there. I've been looking back to my roots, and picking up some older games that I didn't get into the first time around.

Mostly I've been monkeying around with hardware and the like. Setting up multiple systems, upgrading some, etc. Such is the life of a hardware monkey.

(Oh, and I've fantasized enough about using a light saber, JK2 was awesome at fulfilling that fantasy. I can die a happy man.)

I play counter strike and diablo2 LOD online.
Wally, do you play on battle net?? If so whats your account name I'll add it to my friend list.
Played Jedi Knight a bit, decided it wasnt worth buying.
Medal of honour was ok. If a little short.
My house has a good scheme, because there are 3 of us (I have 2 brothers) we split the cost of any games we buy 3 ways. Means we can buy a game and if it is crap it isnt too much of a problem because we only paid a 3rd of the price each.

You're a man after my heart. Maybe I need to finish Wolfenstein someday... never got into it, or Max Payne, just too busy to be submerged...

I have been home alone for almost two weeks now, just me and my dog so I have been spending a lot of time sitting here playing just as loud as I want to. But.............. as always all good things must end, my wife and son will be back home this Sunday. then it's back to the family thing with as much puter time as I can scrape and scrounge.
Wolfenstein is a good game (in small doses),I'm still trying to get use to looking at the back of Max'es head but all in all in worth playing to kill a few hours, MoHAA I love the game. But My all time favorite is still QUAKE 2, Ive beat the game so meny times but I still love it single and on line. I started my FPS habit with Quake 1 and never lost the desire to play ( still got Quake 1 w/origanial box).

Just been playing buronout on the PS2. One of the few games that gives me a genuine adrenaline high.

EQ, Morrowind and UT.

EQ's getting more interesting as I shift up levels, so I've been playing a lot of it recently.

Morrowind is just big, and looks good.

UT - nuff said.

Neverwinter nights is cool, morrowwind is really also, i havent played it, but a friend of mine has it. As for jedi knight, did you play single player or multi player. I liked it mostly because of the sence of deja vou i got from it, all the way back to Dark Force (the ORIGINAL) which i played on my mac which didnt meet the minimum requirements, and was so choppy that you HAD to cheat to get through the game, but it was fun. JKII had the same puzzle aspect, some puzzles had me stumpt for hours. It was great in that respect. Some of the lightsaber combat is a bit tough with the controls like they are, but still a great game IMHO. If you havent played single player try that before you drop the game, the story and puzzles are half the game.

Thanks for the advice Wyrm, I haven't abandonned JK2 yet

If I wasn't so tired tonight I'd have played some UT and another game... only one I'm missing from games I want to try is Medal of Honor, and I'm gonna get that eventually too

My friend and coworker started hacking the EQ servers, running around like God for kicks (he was bored). They initially banned his first 2 characters (30-40 level), then they tracked him down to his main character which was in the mid 50s, and terminated that one too

So now he's starting a ring of EQ servers not run by Sony

Really. I havent played the whole game yet, but sofar i have found it to be a fun game, but its a bit to linear and scripted with not enought stuff to find.
