    Rainbow Six PT 3 and Blackhawk version

    The Sims University- on computer. BTW I LOVE LOVE LOVE this game- but my poor children were taken by the CSS!

    I mostly like RPG or sniper games- those are my favorites.

    Hello fellow gamers! I'm currently playing The Sims (PS2) and Jak and Daxter II - I'm stuck right now. I also like War of the Monsters.

    On my wish list:
    Black and White - you can play God to a bunch of villagers, reward them with crops, send plagues, etc.
    Sims 2
    PSP - my brother just got one and it's SwathiF.

    1moremakes85 - thanks for the Star Wars Timeline.

    Another Sims 2 freak here!

    A good gaming site is http://www.the-underdogs.org/ where you can download abandonware, etc. (old games). Sometimes you may need an emulator to get them to work, but not always. Oh yeah, do NOT download more than one file at a time here, they ask that of you.

    I forgot to add Dink Smallwood, a Zelda-like game. You can download the original game and the MANY d-mods (versions written by fans of the original game) at http://www.dinknetwork.com

    Play the original game first, and then download and play the d-mods (get the utility that lets you install them there as well). I Rec the following D-mods:

    Stone of Balance
    Pilgrim's Quest (play this one AFTER Stone of Balance)
    The Green Voice in My head pt 1
    Bane of the Magi
    Blood Scorpions
    The Quest for Cheese

    There's several more but those will keep you busy for awhile if you're interested. I have to warn you, they're addictive!

    Also, there are walkthrough's for the original and several versions of the game at http://solutions.dinknetwork.com

    1moremakes85 - thanks for the Star Wars Timeline....

    No problem.

    And thanks for the Black and White mention. It's been a while since I gamed on the PC and when I looked that one up out of curiosity, I think I'll add it to my collection of Pharaoh, Age of Mytholody, Zoo Tycoon, and all their respective expansions. On the PC, I only play RTS or "city building" games.

    SscutieI - are you playing Devil May Cry 3? Though the second one sucked (too easy), I heard the third one is hard as HECK! Seeing that I own the original and only played it twice (too hard ), it'll be a while before I get around to the sequels. They'll probably be $10 by then. :P

    Don't you hate it when there's a game you want BADLY and they don't release it on your console? :Angry_boese008: I may eventually have to break down and get an Xbox just so that I can play Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and its sequel Knights of the Old Republic: The Sith Lords.

    Can I confess that I had to give up on GTA: Vice City because I can't drive? No racing or flight games for me.

    any rpg players here ?...

    I'm not big on pure turn-based RPGs. I've had one - Gladius - that I haven't played in forever (though I liked the fact that I could pick skin tone and clothes for my chick). I just picked up Lord of the Rings: The Third Age, which is a straight RPG, this weekend but I haven't played it yet.

    My favorite types of games are Action-RPGs: Baldur's Gate 1 &2, Champions of Norrath 1 & 2, Hunter: The Reckoning. I like having different classes of characters, picking a character and building it up and, with Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 2, building weapons with special magical properties and such. Having the ability to play a female character plays a big part in whether or not I buy a game or enjoy it much.

    I know you play on the PC, but I'm still curious as to what RPGs you play. My next PC game purchase will be the RTS Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth.

    pediepooh791 - I picked up Black & White this weekend too ($6), but it won't play on Microsoft XP. I'm going to have to bring home my old laptop and play it on that.

    Excuse me for butting in but have you tried setting the game to run under Win ME or Win 95/98 compatability? Often that will allow software that won't run under the XP platform to run on the XP platform (because it's using the older platform).

    Any MMOG players out there? I'd love to play Star...

    World of Warcraft addict right here. Lol! WoW is really fun to play, but yes it is extremely addictive. If you decide to play it, be prepared to give up 6months to a year out of your life. Mwahahahaha! It's a huge time sink.

    God of War is also an awesome game.

    Just Say NO to MMORPGs! I can barely make time for the games that I have.

    SscutieI - Ya know, I just can't get into those cartoon- or anime-looking ones. Silly as it might sound, I prefer ones that have a more realistic "look" to them. So despite the good reviews of Kingdom Hearts and Star Ocean, I'll probably never play them.

    JEBE16 was asking for PC and PS2 game recommendations in her OP.

    PS2-er here:

    If anyone is interested the current issue of Playstation Magazine has a God of War demo in it that really gives you an idea of how the games graphics and action sequences play out.

    I'm currently playing on any given day:

    God of War
    Myst 111
    Smash Court Tennis Tournament2
    Katamari Damacy
    Castlevania
    Van Helsing
    Resident Evil-Code Name Veronica

    and I've got my ever increasing stash that I simply cannot find the time to get to.

    Anyone get bugged out with the Silent Hill series in particular The Room? I played the demo and realized (after hording two Silent Hills) that I just dont like the scary, gory stuff.

    Fave series: Jak and the Daxter/Rachet & Clank for the simple pure enjoyment and quickness.

    Anyone get bugged out with the Silent Hill series in...

    I learned that a long time ago. I tried two on my own - The Thing and Fatal Frame - but they were taking forever because I was tiptoeing around scared of ish jumping out at me. Those Silent Hill ones are so freaky, I can't even stand to watch others play. They give me the creeps! And let's not even mention the Resident Evil ones.

    But I am interested in Area 51. Think I'll get a guy friend to see how scary it is first. :P

    Thanks. I went ahead and picked it up for $10. It's gonna take me a while to get the hang of these "fighter" games; it's not my genre. I thought I could just jump in and play as a chick, but you have to work up to that.

    I'd heard about this, particularly with EverQuest players. Another reason to Just Say "NO!" to MMOGs!

    ONEMORETIME4 Treats Addicted Video-Game Players
    By AUDRA ANG, Associated Press Writer

    BEIJING - The 12 teenagers and young adults, some in ripped jeans and baggy T-shirts, sit in a circle, chewing gum and fidgeting as they shyly introduce themselves. "I'm 12 years old," one boy announces with a smile. "I love playing computer games. That's it." "It's been good to sleep" says another, a 17-year-old with spiky hair, now that he's no longer on the computer all day.

    The youths are patients at ONEMORETIME4's first officially licensed clinic for Internet addiction, a downside of the online frenzy that has accompanied the nation's breathtaking economic boom.

    "All the children here have left school because they are playing games or in chat rooms everyday," says the clinic's director, Dr. Tao Ran. "They are suffering from depression, nervousness, fear and unwillingness to interact with others, panic and agitation. They also have sleep disorders, the shakes and numbness in their hands."

    According to government figures, ONEMORETIME4 has the world's second-largest online population - 94 million - after the United States.

    While ONEMORETIME4 promotes Internet use for business and education, government officials also say Internet cafes are eroding public morality. Authorities regularly shut down Internet cafes - many illegally operated - in crackdowns that also include huge fines for their operators.

    State media has also highlighted cases of obsessed Internet gamers, some of whom have flunked out of school, committed suicide or murder. Nonetheless, Internet cafes continue to thrive, with outlets found in even the smallest and poorest of villages. Most are usually packed late into the night.

    Dr. Kimberly Young, a Bradford, Pa., clinical psychologist whose 1998 book on Internet addiction has been translated into Chinese, says she's not surprised the Chinese would face problems with Internet overuse.

    "They are catching up with a lot of our technology, and certainly at that juncture, are now able to run into some of the same difficulties," Young said.

    While treatment programs were virtually nonexistent in the United States a decade ago, she said, dozens of clinics and countless individual therapists such as herself offer counseling and treatment in her country.

    Programs are growing elsewhere, too.

    Just a few years ago, Young says, she attended a conference in Switzerland where she was the only American out of some 200 acapuff_b32cs and clinicians who gathered to address Internet addiction.

    Tao's government-owned clinic, which began taking patients in March, occupies the top floor of a two-story building on a quiet, tree-lined street on the sprawling campus of the Beijing Military Region Central Hospital in the heart of the Chinese capital.

    A dozen nurses and 11 doctors care for the patients, mostly youths aged 14 to 24 who have lost sleep, weight and friends after countless hours in front of the computer, often playing video games with others online.

    Some come voluntarily, while others are checked in by their parents. Many say their online obsessions helped them escape day-to-day stress, especially pressure from parents to excel in school.

    Some can't stop playing games, while the older ones tend to be addicted to online chats with the opposite sex, Tao says. Others are fixated on designing violent games.

    Tao, a psychiatrist for 20 years who specializes in treating addiction, estimates that up to 2.5 million Chinese suffer from Internet addiction, though others are skeptical.

    "As the number of the Netizens grows, the number of the addicted people will grow as well, but we should not worry about the issue too much," says Kuang Wenbo, a professor of mass media at Beijing's Renmin University. "The young men at the age of growing up have their own problems. Even if there was no Internet they will get addicted to other things."

    A reporter was allowed to talk to patients at the clinic on condition they not be identified by name.

    "I wasn't normal," said a 20-year-old man from Beijing who used to spend at least 10 hours a day in front of the screen playing hack-and-slash games like Diablo.

    "In school I didn't pay attention when teachers were talking," he said. "All I could do was think about playing the next game. Playing made me happy, I forgot my problems."

    The 12-year-old, a new arrival, spent four days in an Internet cafe, barely eating or sleeping.

    A soft-spoken 21-year-old man from northeastern Heilongjiang province who had been in the clinic for 10 days said his addiction had helped him escape from family pressures about his studies.

    "I would stay up for 24 hours. I would eat only in front of the computer," he said.

    Tao's team has put together a standard diagnostic test to determine whether someone is addicted, then uses a combination of therapy sessions, medication, acupuncture and sports like swimming and basketball to ease patients back into normal lives.

    They usually stay 10 to 15 days, at $48 a day - a high price in ONEMORETIME4, where the average city dweller's weekly income is just $20.

    The routine begins around 6 a.m. and includes sessions on a machine that stimulates nerve impulses with 30-volt charges to pressure points.

    Some patients receive a clear fluid through intravenous drips said to "adjust the unbalanced status of brain secretions," according to one nurse. Officials would not give any other details about the medication.

    Patients also nap, write diary entries or play cards. Their rooms are sunny, each decorated with artificial flowers, SandycareerF the Pooh comforters and a 17-inch television.

    Tao says the long-term effects of treatment are generally successful, but it's not easy to keep patients from again giving themselves over to Internet temptation.

    "It would be hard to give it up completely," said the 20-year-old from Beijing. "I'll take it step-by-step."

    HA! If you only knew how frustrating those 20 minutes were! I got tired of Method Man yelling at me like Joe Rogan on the TV show "Fear Factor": "We don't have time for this, son!" "Don't tell me we're going to have to do this again!". I've put it on hold and moved on to X-Men: Legends. I'll come back to that one once I've studied up on fighting/wrestling games. I don't have the hang of how to do a "blazing" (?) move (ie. TKO the person).

    I am on vacation until August 18th, so I have plenty of time to mess with it.

    Knowing how slow I am, it'll be a long while before I get this one. It'll be when the next BIG THING comes out and the price drops to $20. But why was one of my students (I teach 2nd grade) telling me ALL about this game and how it's his favorite game to play? It's rated "M" _headshake: .
