    Who here thinks Blizzard is the best ?

    They've set the standard for multiplayer RTS games. I dont really have much of an interest in games like WoW though.

    haha, I've set a hard drive alight by pluggin in the power connector backwards. I had shaved off the corners of a connector to run a fan at 5v, and forgot about it and several months later put it in the HDD, backwards, when I was installing more RAM. I had the case off when I started it and...

    The Original Half Life

    I bought it last year. The graphics are pretty outdated, but if you give it a chance, it will suck you in and not let go untill you beat the damn thing.

    If you could choose your 1 (!ONE!) favourite game....

    Another vote for Half-Life. It took about a week for me to beat, and took way too much of my time. That didnt matter though, I just HAD to get out of Black Mesa. This was easily the most immersive game I've played, and the most fun. It was also the first game to actually hold my attention...

    HL2 delay...again?....hmmm...strange timing

    I dont understand why people are saying that Doom3 owns HL2, when a) HL2 isnt out yet, and you have absolutely no idea how good or bad it will be 2) They are completely different games. I really loved Halflife. I didnt play it untill last year, so the graphics were quite dated when I...

    Newbie at designing sites

    If I was you, I would just brush up on HTML and say screw Frontpage. I've tried using Frontpage and Mozilla Composer, but I always end up going back and redoing about half the code myself anyways. Most programs just never get it exactly the way I want it.

    I'm looking forward to it because I hope that single player can give me another week or two as enjoyable as when I beat HL1, but thats it. Hopefully CS:S will be cool, but I honestly think the engine really dosnt matter when it coems to making timeless games. Half Life had a worked over Quake...

    Myst was first; Riven was a sequel to Myst; is there a sequel to Riven?

    I played Riven a few years ago. It was alot of fun at first, but it gets really hard and repetative. I have Myst 3 but havnt really played it.

    Valve are officially Retarded Inc.

    Regardless of how much you bash and hate them, I bet you are still going to give them 50$ of your hard earned money for a bunch of 1s and 0s.

    Half Life 2 new release date ?!?

    When I pay 50$ for a game, I expect something I can actually hold in my hand and easily move from computer to computer (all my personal computers, no piracy of course). I like laying in my bed reading whatever came with the game before playing, or before I go to bed. If the steam version is...
