Other Games

Postby Rainswept » Tue Jan 22, 2008 8:47 pm

So we all enjoy our time on the FSM forums, and we already have a section for movies and books, so I'm wondering what other games we enjoy.

I'm a nerd at heart (shocker!) I get together with some friends every other weekend to play GURPS, which for those of you who don't know, is like D&D for the people who find that the rules of D&D don't allow them to be quite nerdy enough.

I also play video games, right now I'm into Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, but I have 5 working game systems hooked up to my TV, dating all the way back to my working original Nintendo (NES).

We also play board games like Cranium on occasion.

Deep down in my heart lurks an effection for the very low-tech Pig Mania released lo, these many years ago.

(There is an online version, although not as satisfying as throwing actual pig dice, and the house usually wins.)

I dunno if it counts as a game, per se, but I've been spending much of my spare time in Celestia.

It's a solar system/space simulation program. 99.9% of people would likely find it unsurvivably boring, but I like it. Makes some purdy pictures. :)

There's also Orbiter, along the same lines, but with a focus on flight physics simulation. Lets me hop in the cockpit of a Mk. II Viper. :fsm_rock:

Celestia is another favourite of mine. I also like The Sims, Sim City, The Great Art Race and Call of Duty.

Also, I am always up for a game of chess.

Toribash, yeah, but don't get me started on your damn Americanised words!
Other games include: Age Of Empires 3, The Sims 2, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and a few more which I can't remember.


BTW, what's your name and rank on multiplayer, LPM?

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

There is a u in favourite, just as there is (supposed to be) punctuation in that attempted sentence.

...and you missed an s.

I'm a Nintendo fan at heart, so in the seldom occurrence that I can get my hands on a Wii, I'm playing the Zelda series and Metroid.

The Legend(s) of Zelda are frikkin' awesome.

I'm playing Twilight Princess for the Gamecube, on the Wii, currently.

I hope to beat them all one day.
