    Been playing a ton of Medieval 2: Total War. I really loved Shogun Total War back when it was new and this is just as fun. They're coming out with Shogun 2 in march, and after watching this trailer, the next 2 months can't go by fast enough for me lol

    definitely look into the shogun, medieval, rome, empire, and napoleon total war games if you like real-time or turn based strategy games, because its the perfect blend of both.

    HUGE fan of the Total War series, in the same way that I'm a huge fan of the Battlefield series: GOOD games with AMAZING potential which goes mostly squandered, but are still fun.

    Rome Total War and Medieval 2 have a huge number of awesome mods which make them way, way better than the original games. RTW has a mod called Europa Barborium which I recommend to you the same way I recommend vaping to smokers: it's that awesome. It doubles the world map size, adds different government types, scraps and completely recreates all including all militaries. That mod is a work of love and it shows - it has a huge historical focus which is fun as well. Download EB at moddb.com if you want to play an amazing mod.

    I am. Played through both Morrowind and Oblivion.

    Also waiting for Mass Effect 3 after finishing both the original and ME 2.

    The game I HAVE to stay away from though is WoW. Wayyyyy too addictive for me.

    I usually just play NBA 2k11. Very fun.

    Do people still play Team Fortress 2? I'm thinking about getting it from Steam.

    Nice. My neighbors had an intellivision. I loved AD&D.

    Remember going to Toys R Us and looking at the photocopied back of the game boxes and then taking the ticket to the cashier. Then you would take your paid receipt up to "the cage" where they stored all the games. I always wanted to be inside that cage with all the games...

    34 and still gaming like I'm 10!

    DotA anyone? I'd say SC2 but I only play on a diamond arranged team with a buddy of mine on voicechat. I suck at 1v1 though, so it probably doesn't count.

    Well I'm on a Mac so there aren't too many decent games around, but I do have Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, which certainly does qualify as an extremely decent game, especially multiplayer online. Two or three years old now, but still plenty of players out there.

    Red Orchestra is a WW2, Eastern Front fps with a tremendous focus on realism which you should all give a whirl. 50 player maps with realistically modeled tanks and weapons, no cross hairs, crippled limbs, weapons shot out of hands, intense team work... Yeah, everything that's wrong with FPS' like modern warfare, Halo, CSS type deals? Not wrong here. The intensity and fun of some rounds of RO are hard to exaggerate for me - it's easily my favorite FPS. I'd be playing it right now on my day off if my gaming computer wasn't out of service.

    It's mod, Darkest Hour, adds many new things, most importantly the American and Canadian forces and a change of fronts, and also improves and changes many aspects of the original. The mod can be installed automatically in minutes for free over steam.

    I think RO is like 10 bucks, and for what amounts to two titles which can provide 100s of hours of very meaningful, massive, online FPS combat? Awesome deal. There's actually a sequel coming out call Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad which is going to be even better and more realistic, with 64 players and a bunch of new systems.

    My brother has that for ps3 - console gaming kind of turns me off, but it looked fun. Open range gameplay with missions, kind of like GTA, which is made by the same company. Multiplayer looked pretty awesome but with low player counts. And there's a zombie DLC which got good reviews from what I hear, and also I think the game got some bad media for being crazy misogynistic :lol:
