Star Wars Galaxies.
I paid international shipping just to get my hands on a copy and it was the most boring game I have ever played.

Double Dragon 3 for the NES
Double Dragon 2 was a masterpiece, so I was looking forward to getting my hands on DD3. Man they messed that one up big time. You couldn't even do the cyclone kick while moving like DD2. You had to stand still and jump. I beat it anyways.

To change the subject a little, what was the hardest game you have ever played?
Mine is the very first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for the NES. Man that game is hard. I never was able to get to the end battle. All my turtles died during the last level. Has anyone beaten that game?

probaly the funnest game I've ever owned was NBA Live 95. My friend Scott and I would have these unbelievable games where we would "draft" all the greatest players of all time and end up with a score something like 188- 184 in 5min quarters. I have to thank Larry Bird and Oscar Robertson for many a win.

The worse game I've ever bought was probaly Morrowind. A friend of mine really "sold" me on this game, and I found it to be really really really boring

I'm really looking forward to NWN2 and D&D Online. It's going to be a good pair of games to have take over my life.

Autumn, my wife, if you are reading this. Prepair yourself for what the future will bring. Muah ha ha ha ha!

In all my gaming years, I never beat Super Mario Brothers. I've beaten every one but the first one. Though, I've only played it when I was littler, I always got bored by level 8. I hated doing the warps. I'd get to level 6 or 7 (forget which one was my favorite... the snowy night ones). After that, I'd shoot ducks. That probably explains a lot now.

Mine has to Dragon Crystal - man, was it even possible to beat that thing?

Oh, and the new Ninja Gaiden isn't exactly a cakewalk either.

:wub:  What the... ?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

A bug ridden pile o' crap that was released prematurely, lacked originality (after Fallout it claimed so much and delivered less than the first), had no storyline or cohesion (can anyone really say that they gave a f*ck about the villagers after they got abducted?) and was just shallow as hell. I felt no sense of association or loyalty at all to any of the towns (though Reno was pretty fun with the Bishop women...:o).

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


To me fallout 2 was better than fallout after couple of patches. It had lotīs of more sidequest and because of this I found areas to be more alive. I donīt think that your lack of caring of abducted villagers was weakness in storytelling. Each to itīs own.

hmm I remember playing Freespace 1 .. then 2 came out and it was the best game I ever played (back then), ended in a TOTAL cliffhanger .. but a third was never made .. that was the darkest day in gaming for me .. I still have scars on my soul .. :o
the story was so great, but it was like Star Wars without "Return of the Jedi" to finish the saga .. even if it had been crappy it should still be there!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Freespace 2, *sigh* I played it through so many times. I have a "thing" for space sims. Tie fighter and X-wing were really good games as well. Ah, I remember playing x-wing with 286... It was painfull. :wub:

Heh, painful you say? Try wing commander 3 on a 386. 40 minute load times for the movie cinematics. Now that was... entertainging. Good old days. :o

Being a hopeless BG junkie, BG3 is the game I have most looked forward to so naturally I was very disappointed when it vanished, especially when it was shaping up to be so damn good!

The biggest disappointment of a game I actually got to play was probably The Curse of Monkey Island. It was kind of an underlying thing where I kept waiting for the game to get better and it never did, but it was ok I guess just not a real Monkey Island game. I'm usually quite easy to please, it takes a lot for a game to really fail miserably for me.

Edit - I'll probably get flamed for this but I was pretty underwhelmed by Shogun - Total War, I had a lot of trouble even finishing the tutorial. I'm sure for a strategy buff its a dream come true but I couldn't get involved enough to persevere once things got difficult.

^ no flaming .. but I absolutely adored that game (still play it regularly) .. Shogun was the best strategy game of it's time imo .. simple because the level of control!
but I know what you mean, it had to play on easy for a long time before I could even survive for more than 20 minutes! :D

and I remember Bg3 was quite a blow as well .. but Freespace .. I can still feel sad when I think back .. :devil:

Recently, I'd have to jump on the Fable bandwagon. After a few hours I it didn't matter that I could do "anything" I didn't care about what would happen next.

In the past, every Mega Man after the third one. Stopped paying attention once they got the X stuff. As a kid played Mega Man 2 and 3 so much I could beat them in one sitting, but then they made the same game over and over. And a Mega Man imitation Final Fantasy? It just breaks my heart.

They need to revialize Mega Man like they did Ninja Gaiden, Prince of Persia, and like I hear they're going to do with the Legend of Zelda. Not that the recent Zelda's are bad, just aimed at middle school kids. They should let these series grow up with the people who are playing them. The young 'uns can get their own IP's.

My most look forward to game in a long time is KOTOR 2. But after the delay (for PC) I stopped coming to the site and my desire to play it slowly faded. I'm still looking forward to it though.

Hardest game goes to a lot of those old nintendo games. Elevator action was extremely hard. Anyone get far in that game? Spy Hunter NES. Super Ghouls and Ghosts for the super nintendo also was hard. As gaming got more mainstream the challenge in them has not been what it used to be.

The most difficult game I've ever played must be Army Moves on my old Commodore 64. I don't think I ever cleared the first level!

...biggest disappointment:


Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn


...I couldna wait fer it ta hit the shelves; it was gonna 'ave all the tools that were gonna make it inta the greatest cRPG e'er made (an' after the sheer brilliance o' BG, how could ya doubt it???)...damn near brought me ta tears how poorly BG was followed up... :p


...biggest (good) surprise was actually a tie:


Planescape: Torment


...what can I say that I ain't said 'afore; was simply enthrolled wit' it an' still am... :)


AND


Vagrant Story


...was expectin' a FF ripoff...what I got was a console RPG that kept me glued ta the Playstaion fer days on end (e'en called in sick fer work...two days in a row :p )...how pathetic, eh???... :p

As a citizen of the EU who can't be ****d to get a modded xbox, i have to say i agree with KOTOR II as the most recent game i desperately wanted to play.

All time most anticipated game for me was PS:T, i can't even remember how i knew about it pre-release but i just read about the premise behind it and knew i would love it. And guess what
Spoiler
:p

Mechwarrior 2 kept me in eager anticipation throughout most of high school. Turned out pretty good, too. Rome: Total War was my latest obsession and also satisfied.

MOO 3 was a kick in the nuts. **** that game and the bastards who made it.
