My all time favorite FPS game was the Delta Force series. Too bad they're all discontinued...

It's not as high-speed as the other games but I play a lot of the free PC game Crossfire. You can download it from z8games.com

Bluhduh Still nothing.

dammit. I need a new game.
Back working with video game junkie helper. He brought me in dead space today. He said it was great. I made it a total of ten minutes before I turned it off. I don't do the horror stuff. Don't like the movies, definitely not interested in a game of it.
In the three weeks since I finished new vegas, I've managed to burn through about $3K buying stuff I don't really need, but spending money is what I do best when I'm bored.

You could hook a guy up with some of that.

Fallout 3 ruined me for games. I have not enjoyed anything as much - before or since. New Vegas, in retrospect, was just okay.

Haha, I played through FO3 a few times on PC, then I recently got the GOTY pack for my PS3, so now I cruise the wastelands on my 46" plasma. One of the best games EVER.

Anybody get or going to get Deadspace 2? I'm intrigued. Never played the first one but I hear it was awesome.

XBox 360, COD Black Ops. I'm always up for some Nazi Zombies with people that:

a) understand concepts like "team work"

and

b) don't have voices that sound like Elmo.

Thanks.

Oblivion somehow isn't the same. It didn't really manage to capture my attention.
Leveling is complicated, making spells, too. I never really figured out how to capture a soul into a soul gem to replenish my magic weapons aso.


I don't think the story is as captivating either. Fallout, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed and Dragon Age somehow manage to make identification with your character much easier. I didn't like New Vegas in that regard either.

Good to know. Oblivion was the next suggestion I was given. He mentioned Dragon Age as well, but I prefer the current/future games over mythical past.
I think I'm going to go start a new FO3.

I loved Delta Force. I remember playing Delta Force 2 online was one of my favorites
