Hi, post anything you want about games. It doesn't have to be Amiga specific. You might want to put in games you are playing now or some forgotten games that shouldn't be missed.

I've got the RPG bug again and plan to have another turn of Pools of Darkness.

At the moment I'm still trying to finish Dragon Age.  I keep setting it down as it gets to to be too much of the same.

Defender of the Crown has been getting the most play lately. CD-i and Amiga versions. Just a fun and quick diversion.  

Wish I had the discipline to set aside more time for more in-depth gaming, but one of these days  :)

I mostly use games to test the compatibility of whatever Amiga project I happen to be assembling, but I always seem to get hooked on Agony for at least a couple of levels.

Defender of the Crown


This made me wonder. I remember in the old days on Amiga I used to play the same game over and over again non-stop!! However I only play the games of today once or twice! I do not know why? Maybe because they are too long?

Sometimes I still play Colonization!!

I do most of my gaming on the xbox360 these days.  I love playing games from the couch on a big screen.  It's also nice not having to worry about hardware requirements as all 360 games always run which sorta reminds me of the early days of computing when an Apple II or C64 games always ran consistently from machine to machine.  Seems like every time I ran a game on a Windows box it needed software, OS and driver updates.  

Anyway, I'm currently finishing up Bioshock 2 and will start Dragon Age soon.  I also play Borderlands when friends are available to play with.

I play MAME and Amiga games when I need a quick game fix of 10 or 15 minutes.

Dragon age is the best RPG since Planescape. Unfortunately, there are some boring parts in the middle, which reduces the replay value considerably (I'm going to play through the Tower of Ishal for the 30th time later tonight. :D

Best RPG ever: Paper Mario, and Paper Mario thousand year door

just kidding, my kids learned to read playing Paper Mario. They are fun to play.

I've kept my pc up to date using ~100 dollar upgrades every once in a while. I've spent way over the price of a 360 though...hmmmm...

pools of darkness is a great great game ...
the beginning might be a little slow, but you'll quickly get into it.
btw, I'ld highly recommended starting from Curse if haven't played the earlier games ...

I recently finished the curse of monkey island, if you're a fan of adventure games and nice graphics don't miss it. My favourite bit was el pollo loco, the devil chicken.

Playing Fallout 3 at the moment on the 360 and Babylonian Twins on the Ipod touch but have a game of Elite going on the 4000 that I play whenever I can and I regularly go back to Magic Pockets.

I was playing Modern Warfare2 but got sick of all the leet 13 year olds :)

I'm back to Neuromancer, and Ultima III.  I will also probably get into Wasteland again sometime soon.  Whenever I start feeling a little nostalgic I'm always called back to these titles for some reason.
