Favourite Games at the moment?

Post by CenturyGamer » Sun Oct 26, 2008 11:10 am

For me, i'm loving FF7 Crisis Core on the PSP, and Super Mario Bros 3 on the NES (Before that i had only played the Allstars version). Crisis Core is really great, awesome cinematics, nice story, etc. Super Mario Bros 3 is just good classic action :P. Even though i could play the SNES version, i somehow prefer the original game's squeaky music and graphics, they just sound good, :D.

Megaman 9 is my favourite game at the moment. The new downloadable content has extended the gameplay even more. I am also enjoying completely finishing Warriors Orochi for the 360 and Yakuza 2 for the PS2.

Dead Space. Just loving that game. It just oozes atmosphere and scaryness out of ever blood-stained hole and bullet-ridden monster.

I'm actually using my PS3 to play games recently rather than Blu-ray movies :lol: and I'm currently alternating between Pure, FIFA 09, Devil May Cry 4 and Soul Calibur IV. I knew there was a reason I bought it on launch day... :shock:

Saints Row 2 is probably my favourite game at the minute closely followed by far Cry 2. Fable II and Deep Space I can see are excellent games but Ive only put a few hours into them each so cannot really give them the time they really deserve. Will at the weekend though.

Street Fighter Alpha 3 on MacMame
Street Fighter Alpha 3 upper on GBA on DS ;)
New York New York on MacMame
Garou on MacMame
Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike on Xbox
GTA IV on 360
Skate on 360
Burnout Revenge on 360
Soul Calibur IV on 360

Having said that I'm only twitch gaming at the moment, hence the abundance of SF and an old shooter from no-where, so the 360 titles are just my current ongoing slogs wherin I never actually make any progress, just drop into the world for a bit and see how much havoc I can wreak or how many stupid things i can do.

Skate, Little Big Planet, FarCry 2, Bioshock, Fallout 3, Wipeout HD, Viva Pinata 2 - phew, too much gaming there. Need to start getting up earlier and doing some before work.

Speccy R-Type (the 'proper' version, with ALL the levels!).

MAME version be damned, I find watching the Speccy handle R-Type so perfectly to be a bigger thrill than the arcade or Amiga versions.

In modern gaming, Fable 2, although I'm beginning to feal the fear as Fallout 3 looms, and the days contain not enough hours.
