Console games, anyone play them?
« on: November 17, 2007, 11:31:32 PM »
Anyone like playing console games?   What are your favourite games, and what platform?

My son has just got Call of Duty 4 for the Xbox 360, and have been watching him play it.  The graphics and game play are just superb, best I've seen so far IMO.

A big  :tup: from me.

I used to be but not really anymore. I've still got an X box but only ever really played Forza Motorsport on it in anger. I ended up only really liking driving games.

I do remember when I got my PS1 way back in 95 or something, plugged the sound into me stereo and scared myself silly playing Doom. If you remember there's a bit in it where a baby starts crying...

I have call of duty 1 and 2 and the graphics etc very good. My pc wont play 3 and 4.
I do play Medal of Honour Spearhead and Breakthrough on line often.
In fact I am an admin for an on line "sniper clan" in Spearhead. I run a security scanner every day for the server to keep it clean. The members are from as far afield as Greece and USA. Great bunch of people and great fun.

Played a demo of Forza 2, but wasn't overly impressed.   Project Gotham racing on the the other hand is bloody great.   We have versions 1-2-3, and just tried the demo of 4.   Looks like one for the chrimbo list methinks.    Then again, Assassins Creed looks fab.  ;)

We have Call of duty 1 on our pc and love it.   But I have to say that COD 4 on the 360 is just superb, the graphics are awesome.   Can't get my boy off the bloody thing.  :(

Will join this thread when the WII gets into shops again!

Have no interest in the 360 - microsoft own enough already! PS3 would just be a cheap blu-ray player.

True, they do, but don't let that put you off.   The graphics on the latest breed of games are simply awesome.  ;)

Graphics mean little to me, but gameplay is everything! Crysis, looks like a supermodel, but is just a.n.other fps. Mario Galaxy looks like a kids game, but plays like the dogs!

Hi Alan, and welcome.

PGR 3 is great, we play that quite a bit.   Played the demo of PGR 4, and that looks absolutely stunning.   Assassins Creed is the next one on the list though.  ;)

Gave up on consoles with a sega megadrive lol, still have it in fact..  Been a pc gamer for quite a few years, counter strike mainly, but the last couple of years have been playing battlefield2 :)

Assassin's Creed has entered the building.   Looks great so far, but will give my thoughts later on when we've played it  :D
