I saw threads for books ,movies etc but no computer games ,So i thought i would make one. Basically just say what games you are playing at the moment and ones you look forward to playing in the near future .

I'm currently playing the orange box and binary domain and looking forward to playing mass effect 3 soon too.


This can double as a computer game related news too didn't want to start a bunch of new threads.

Two months ago I started with Star Wars, The Old Republic, a World of Warcraft clone situated in the Star Wars universe, that's quite addictive. If you have
  • a Windows box with quite some oomph,
  • too much time on your hands,
  • some dough burning a hole in your pocket and
  • don't mind a string of corpses in your wake
this game may entertain you for quite some time.

<geek hat on> Ooh, I play a lot of computer games and have done since the days of the old ZX Spectrum in the 1980's.

1990's : Superfrog, Adamms Family, Monkey Island I and II, Quake II (which I finished in 2 weeks much to my ex's annoyance), The Settlers I, II ( I first played Settlers on The Amiga) and III, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Rayman, Jazz Jackrabbit, Age of Empires I II and III and many more.

2000's : Too many to mention. These days I tend to play games that I buy from Big Fish Games. They are more orientated towards puzzles and thinking things out, I was never big on war games, apart from Age of Empires, and I never got into WoW. I recently bought Rollercoaster Tycoon for Windows XP and it's just as good as I remember it.

This is a snapshot of my current desktop and it's icons, as you will see most say 'Play...', those are games and a fraction of what I own. Nice idea for a thread,

Jeez LG. I only play a game or two on my wii.
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

I've been gaming on PCs and ZX Spectrums since the early 1980s, I must have played hundreds. Some of my favourites: As you can see, few new addictions in the noughties.

Have not really got in to many games since Elite on the BBC Micro, what a brilliant waste of time.... The junior Joscos play lots, ALL the time, but I have recently been smitten with Isle Of Tunes on the iPad.

I miss my old ZX Spectrum, few of my favourites on that were "Sherlock", "Invincible Island", "Hampstead", "Urban Upstart", "1984" and "Their Finest Hour"

I used to have "Lords of Midnight" on both the Spectrum and PC although it wasn't as playable on the PC.

Their Finest Hour was a great game to play, until I discovered a quick way to win which was to send 5 Spitfires against a squadron of Messerschmitts. That way you lose only one of two aircraft but take out most of their squadron each time.

I'm currently hooked on Lego Star Wars:- The Complete Saga. Once I can complete that, I'll be allowed to buy Lego Harry Potter:- Years 1-4

Currently playing Medal of Honour Black Ops, but I am absolutely rubbish at it!
I adore the Grand Theft Auto series on PS2 & PS3, but have never got to 100% completion on any of them, due to lack of commitment.
Just purchased GTA Vice City for iPad for £2.99 (what a steal), paid £30 quid for that on PS2 when it 1st came out!
