Resident Evil's controls were always bad. Even RE5 is a PITA as you can't move if you aim which is stupid. It's supposed to be fast-paced and if you're stopping to aim, you're either far enough away or your zombie fodder. I can live with MGS as it's supposed to be played stealthy. I still remember the original MG and RE and the new controls aren't much better. At least you can move diagonally now.

I'd love to see Parasite Eve ported to the PS3 or a remake done.

I just loaded up an old Thief 2 game. I like that there's not really any killing but you have to be all stealthy like. It's not a fast paced game, by any means, but it's a fun one!

Oh yeah! Thief The Metal Age and Thief Gold are probably my all time favorites, not to mention there's about a zillion fan missions to go with them.
Anyone ever play Zork The Grand Inquisitor? It came on the first pc I bought, had a lot fun solving the off the wall puzzles in that one, should play it again. Going to give Read Dead a shot, maybe after the gin martinis wear off though, can hardly typr right noe

Anyone every play Zork? Watch out for grues!

The Thief series is a definite favorite of mine.

I never would have thought you were that old.


I liked Planetfall best out of all those games. The crazy thing is I can still see the graphics in my mind.

I think I played thief 2. I got into a cave complex with a bunch of those robots & couldn't get any further & eventually gave up. I did like the stealthy style of play.
As a side note. My son found out that in FONV (I don't see why it wouldn't work in the others.) you can't TAKE the things off of store shelves or the owners attack you...but...if you pick it up & carry it around a corner out of sight you can then TAKE it. You lose karma, but nobody attacks you.

I'm starting to feel the blk ops burn out. I hope the map pack comes sooner than later.

Verily, thou art not!

Planetfall was Zork in Space where you started as a space janitor. I played it on an Atari 800XL.

You can't possibly be that old! You know too much about computers!

I just got a PS3 so that I could play GT5. Some annoying aspects, but overall a fantastic game imho. I also fly FSX on the computer a bit. I'm Bike_Pilot on PSN if anyone wants to add me

I feel a cold coming on. If the game is half as good as the trailer makes it look like ... Outstanding!

It's borderline for Shiny Things.

Perfect for JoMomma.
