Well, we were discussing video games in Bree Bash on posts 1297-1306, then moved on to other things as with everything in a party thread. TBH, I allways thought that despite HG being a gaming community, games are largely marginalized in the off topic forums. I figure most of us spend a good chunk of our time gaming as I do (for many probably more then we should ), whether console or PC. So I thought I'd make this thread so we could discuss these things in detail as we have in the past with various threads on books, films, and such. Feel free to do critiques of games you've done recently, ask for tips to kill that pesky boss, recall old favourites, or speculate on upcoming releases.

I just finished the main story in Fable 2. Large world to explore, decision making that effects the outcome, dry humour throughout, overall a very enjoyable game. Definately of the most original fantasy titles I've seen, no Elves or Dwarves, what such things there are most everyone is flatout clueless it exists (i.e. trolls, goblins hobbes, magic), and the world actually left the Middle Ages. That's too much to ask for in most fantasy games, I allways felt heavily Tolkein/D&D influenced RPGs were boring and unoriginal. Negative notes would be the storyline, somewhat thin; and the end (I won't say just what was wrong with it, but it really made me think, "come on!").

Currently I'm working on Hellboy: Science of Evil. So far so good, I'm a big fan of Hellboy and they really captured the best of the films and comics.

Heh, nice BB code work there.

My friend and I are currently playing through Gears of War, and as always I am training my Pokemon.

Shitcakes, one wrong bracket and the whole post is ruined. Never got used to the code buttons we got with the forum 2.0 upgrade. Fixed.

Amazing title. I generally dislike 3rd person shooters, but Gears is definately an exception.

I'm an ETW man, but my friend is making me get Team Fortress 2 after my exams. Looks rather entertaining, even though I suck at FPSs in general.

Just playing Pokemon at the minute.

Was playing through FFXIII at the same time, but in a *very* hungover state I played for about an hour and forgot to save, and then after playing though the same hour again the next day it crashed. I do not feel like repeating the same section again right now.

I'm a bargain bin gamer.

Got gifted San Andreas on steam recently, so been playing some of that, skipping through the horrendously ghetto cutscenes.

A while before that, picked up Assassin's Creed on PC for a tenner, which is AWESOME and well worth it - PC version fixes some of the big complaints about the console version, too.

Fallout 3 should arrive on Sunday, too. Downloadable content all included.

Also, been a bit of BFME of late, including the Lone Wolf mod, which is AWESOME if still in beta, with tons of civilisations added to the first game.

I never play anything on PC that could be played on 360. Unless it's strategy.

Then TF2 is the game for you. Most classes you barely need to aim (Heavy, Solly, Demo) or you can go Engie and just put up a sentry gun

Fallout 3: great game, apparently.

Absolutely impossible to get working, however.

Probably. Never actually played the original, though. I wish there were more Westerns. Call of Juarez and the second one are both excellent. I hope they make a new Gun.
