Thanks Snow. I too like the older versions where it doesn't lead you thru as much. Spent many hours on Quake 1 and its gamepacks just trying to find my way thru.

Quake 4, while fun, could have been more fun if you had to find your way thru on your own.

I personally don't care much about the story, just give me guns, monsters, and God Mode.

well- most everyone thinks that 'their' game is the best- even those who play mario bros. It's amazing how long it took my 'friends' before they finally gave up trying to convert me. LOL - some still nudge every once in a while- but I'm sticking to Quake. And one of these days I'll be kicking my aunt's rump for a change. LMFAO

Should I list the games I like?

Let's see.

There's Halo, Halo2 and Halo3 (my brother and I enjoy all of them).

Then there's Space Empires IV and Space Empires V and Starfury (cheap budget games that are pretty good and easy to modify to add new ships, technology, AI's etc).

I also enjoyed Diablo II (and the LOD expansion). I didn't mind Call of Duty 2 & 3 (my brother owns them not me).

Then there was Star Trek Armada and Starfleet Command III.

I have also tried Destroyer Command (only cost $10) have played Freelancer. Also play a bit of Command & Conquer: Generals (and the Zero Hour addon). Also have fiddled with Battleships Forever (a free games where you can also design your own ships).

Also have played Desert Combat (a mod for Battlefield 1942) but it has been awhile.

I think that covers most of them. :smt003

hmmm I'm beginning to wonder what the psychological profile of the typical PC gamer is; especially with individuals involved in a number of combat scenarios. I'm not saying anything about anyone- I just think that this would make an interesting study.

The Army probably has already done one. :smt003

I do remember that sometime in the 1990s that the all the military services that used aircraft were finally able to run their simulators at full speed, because the recruits at that time were the first group that had grown up with video games.

And today several military forces are using 'video games' as part of their requirement campaign. Of course these are that the same as the ones you buy, but it has been done because that is what today's youth are interested in.

I think there was the America Army game which was pretty much a full out close to realism game made in conjunction with the US Army as part of a campaign to get people interest in joining up.

As for profiles, well I know mine is fine (and my brother). We may enjoy gaming and killing each other and ourselves doing stupid things (that how you sometimes discover weird things in the game) and wiping out empires etc, but we both know that is only on the computer. Here in the real world, you only get one life and no respawn or save points.

For us, what happens in the game, stays in the game. We never try to do it in the real world.

Is anyone actually playing Enemy Territory: Quake Wars??

I was a Q1, Q2, Q3 and Unreal Fan (Unreal 1, UT 2,3 etc)

I played the demo version ages ago and ended up buying it the other day so I can get into it further?? I also played a bit of BattleField which is pretty cool (but i think the ranking thing sort of sux).

It would be cool if we could get an online team together .... (just a thought).

I remember when the first Doom came out. I was miffed that it took up 10MB on my hard drive.

I have one game that I've really gotten my money's worth out of, called "Ho Chi Min Trail." I paid $2.95 for it. Found it a few years ago on a clearance table at a discount store. Really primitive. You're stuck in one spot, fending off hords of VC and RVN attackers. Like that stupid Freecell thing that comes with Windows, there's something way too addictive about it that I suspect has something to do with the sheer simplicity.

The game I love the most is The Settlers

I first played it on the Amiga, then on the PC.

I just like it :smt003

Quake is a first-person shooter video game that was released by id Software on June 22, 1996. It was the first game in the popular Quake series of video games. n single-player mode, players explore and navigate to the exit of each level, facing many challenging monsters and a few secret areas along the way. n multiplayer mode, players on several computers connect to a server (which may be a dedicated machine or on one of the player's computers), where they can play against each other.
