ok Game Sins that I shall be measured by :P
-Only game i have completed multiple times is Maniac Mansion on C64
-Never lasted more then 30mins in any Final Fantasy game (though only played the DS ones)
-Wanted to be better at SF, so I got really good at SFvsXmen when I worked at timezone, and can still beat it on one credit (most the time... damn apocalypse)
-I used to like Vega in SF2 until I relaised he was shit and switched to Ken
-When playing SF games I always use the funny joystick between fingers technique...
-Never liked any Mortal Kombat
-My favorite pinball was Johnny Mnemonic
-I only gave up my C64 when it died and I got a MegaDrive2 (I got another C64 not long after that I still have :P)
-The only games i owned on the MD were Another World and Flashback (I hired ALOT of games)
-Since the MegaDrive the only two consoles I have owned are a Wii and a NDS, of which the NDS is a clear winner
-I used to let my brother win at Goldeneye sometimes on his N64 so that he didn't chuck a spac and would keep playing.
-I have never (EVER) played a gamecube
-I still really want a dreamcast
-I still own a Gameboy and a Gamegear
-I play my DS on the toilet :P

Thats about all I can think of...

You're the guy with famously bad movie taste as well, right?

If it wasn't for that, I'd be calling fakepost for sure.

Holy shit.

If I were honest, it seems like he just doesn't like games or movies.

- I think Halo is exceedingly generic and really not worth the hype.
- I never play my Wii anymore, and didn't finish RE4 on it even though I really should.
- I'm addicted to the buck hunter game at arcades =|
- I've recently had the urge to go out and buy a DS, purely to play pokemon on =|

Halo is a generic shooter, but there's no denying Halo 3 is insanely polished. The storyline and voice acting is pretty awesome too.

Polished is nothing without interesting gameplay =P~
Which is why I love other FPS's [admitidly, there's not much in the way of console FPS that interests me], but can't stand Halo [1, 2, or 3]

The End: No, that's everyone else you're thinking of. Nothing wrong with me :P

YPE: On the contrary, I love movies. I like more movies than I hate, in fact I tend to think that a lot of people are far more critical of movies than I am. I like the films people write off as overblown brainless Hollywood shite, because as far as I'm concerned, they serve their purpose, which is to entertain me. I don't need every film I see to be identical to the source material, I don't need every film to mean something or be deep and profound. That's why I can watch something like, say, Date Movie and be entertained. Sure, it's trash, but there's funny bits in it and that why I'm watching it.

Games are harder. I'd say the opposite of the above is true for me, I'm probably a lot harder on games than most people. Entertaining isn't really good enough, I need a lot more from a game than I do from a movie, in order for it to hit my approved list. I suppose the easiest way to put it is to say that I'm a game snob to everyone else's movie snob.

I think. Not really 100% on that analysis, but the point is, it's everyone else who sucks. I'm fine :P

F3:TS sucked, so did its 3-branded predecessors, and in fact bearing in mind that I haven't played IV, SF died after Alpha 3. (Which is in fact my favourite in the series so far)
- Soul Calibur II and III sucked. Sucked HARD. Haven't played I or IV, but loved Soul Blade on PS1. Loved it long time.



Get...the...fuck..outta..here..!


I know. I wanted so badly to like them, I mean I REALLY wanted them to push my buttons. But they just...didn't. I found SCII and III too complex for me, and I don't mind admitting it. I'm not terribly good at Tekken either, for the same reason, but I can still play Tekken at my own level, whereas SC I guess you need to be a lot better than I am to get the most out of it. I have II and III for my PS2, and I drag them out every now and then to try an learn them, but it's always the same, I give up after a few hours of practise and not getting anywhere.

As for SF3, I wanted to like that too, but it just felt all wrong. Although it needs to be said that I played it on a CPS-3 emulator on PC, and was using the keyboard. (That can't have helped :P) If there was a decent home conversion, I'd be the first to grab a copy and spend some time getting my head around it. As there's not, (afaik, and short of importing), I have to let my initial verdict stand.

And maybe the biggest sin of all, not long ago I threw out the bulk of my videogame magazine collection, every mag I've ever bought since 1989 outside of Edge and random special issues, and let me say this - I regret that more than anything.

:O

I too got rid of a lot of my old videogame magazine collection and regret doing so.


I have something else to confess. Despite owning a number of Zelda games, I have never finished any of them. I cannot get into them the way I play the Final Fantasy series.

Same thing with the Mario games. Never finish a single one.

I said this in another thread but... :(... I haven't played a street fighter game properly since Super Street Fighter 2.
PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME!!!

Hey Takoma...just interested did you actually play Goldeneye when it was first released?

Because I thought it was a classic back then even though I was primarily a PC gamer at the time, I thought it had some great stuff in it and seriously the only competition it had was the likes of Quake 2 and maybe Half Life...but not sure if that was quite out then....of course it hasnt aged well and stacked up against newer games of course it is shit.

I mean at the time I don't remember any PC shooter in which I could sneak up behind a soldier and shoot him in the butt and he would actually respond like he had been shot there.

I was actually considering throwing out a heap of old PC powerplay and atomic mags I have.....

I only regret throwing out my old Zzap and commodore format magazines

+1 boony I thought the same thing about the goldeneye comment, there was not a lot of PC FPS to be raised on :P well, not many that were better then goldeneye, hell most people didn't even use a mouse back then

I don't enjoy Team Fortress 2.

Yeah, maybe I should give it another chance but it doesn't grab me, maybe because I suck at it. :P

I'd never owned a console until the Wii.

I've never played any incarnation of a Playstation.

Actually, I lie.

I had a DS before the Wii.

See, you've got a full list of offences, but they're like running-a-red-light or turning-against-an-arrow offences.

Not even playing a PS1/2/3/PSP is like fucking a 6 year old with a pipe wrench.

Serious gaming offence.
