I am not gonna lie, if elves did exist then I'd be absolutely racist towards them. I mean you gotta face it: we are humans, they are elves. I'd poop in their mailboxes every night.

 

Thank god elves don't exist, they'd make me into a horrible person.

For me it's those elder scrolls cat people... I would definitely not trust cat people at all

@Sarex Fair enough, but at least they changed the picture enough that without a side by side I don't automatically think Hugh Jackman. The Angelina Jolie picture is so obvious.

Bioware might have stopped those portraits from getting into the game, but they definitely liked the idea and made it into tradition, because quite a few of their characters are modeled after celebs. Like, aforesaid Miranda (though I'd sue if I were that actress, because Miranda's more a fusion between her and Shrek), also default dude Shepard, Andromeda's both Ryders and I think Ashley and Kaidan's prototypes are models.

Way back in the day I played a game called Sentinel Worlds 1: Future Magic. Here are some of the available portraits:

As an aside, this may be my finest thread derailing ever. I regret nothing!

I'm getting more Carl Weathers. This game is from the late 80s, and Carmen Electra didn't get famous until the 90s, so the center one probably isn't her.

What about Sharon Stone? 😛 But I think, she became known in 90s as well, hmm

 

Edit: Basic Instinct is from 1992. So probably not her...

Possibly; it was the mustache and cheek that seemed like Arsenio to me. Weathers' cheek/head is more rounded.

How dare they steal my picture for their game. 😉

 

Also, Roger Maddox is clearly Lionel Richie.

I finished Zero Time Dilemma. This is the game that answers the question "What if Hideo Kojima made a Saw movie as a video game?"

Pros:

* Well written non-liner narrative

* Not afraid to deliver a brutal Bas Rutten liver shot, metaphorically speaking

* Great puzzle variety

* Overall good puzzle design, including fragment-spanning puzzles

Cons:

* Game didn't make me a sandwitch

Conclusion: Spike Chunsoft makes niche games. Things happen in their games that may be too much for some people. I get why mainstream games won't go there, I raally do. Still, I'm really glad someone makes games like this. 

I would love Sean Carroll to play this game so that he could pick it apart. 

:p

Been re-playing Pathfinder Kingmaker. For several months I've too busy to sit down and play games, its a welcome change of pace.:lol:

Its  nice to game again after a break, when I was in transit between my move from JHB to CPT I didnt any gaming for 4 months and it was great to get back into it again ...it made me really  appreciate it 💻

I am still playing Morrowind and I am loving it, I played this game in 2008 the first time but this time I am using Mods and playing it with more  RPG experience in these types of games

I am currently on the Third Trial of the Nerevarine  Prophecies. I dont understand the criticism towards Elder Scroll games  that all  quests are shallow and lack quality writing. Yes their are some simple side quests like " deliver shirts to merchant " or " kill brigand " but the entire primary quest around  Dagoth Ur and the prophecies is engrossing and deep 

Also the lore contained in the hundreds of books is very interesting  if you enjoy understanding the history in any gaming world 

The combat could be better but I think the level and skill advancement is a good way of progressing, the more you train in  certain skills the better you get so you are encouraged to explore and utilize skills . The magic system offers a myriad of different and exciting types of choices like Enchanting and Conjuration so no complaints their 

And  I appreciate and enjoy how the economy works and how you always need to find money to sustain your adventurous  pursuits like buying spells, upgrades to weapons and potions 

And then their is the size of the game world and how you can just explore anywhere and anything and find new things like crypts, tombs and random NPCS that you can interact with  . This is true Sandbox, here is a map of the gaming world just to illustrate this point. Note this map is like Google Maps and you can scroll down to specific features

It's not hard to have best story among other Bethesda titles 😛

Though if you count Arkane as Bethesda too, well, Dishonored has hit a sweet spot with me, although I cannot say, it is something truly epic 😛

Yes Arkane is Bethesda and I agree the narrative is very compelling and exciting as it unfolds

Good for you, in real life they will probably fall to second league xD

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"
