doom 2 - coz it makes modern level design looks like a hairy turd. There aren't many games where you just know that within the next 10 minutes you are gonna die and you're going to enjoy it.

I always play TDU1 few times a week-month since it came out. Take the cars off the roads with a tweak & just have fun driving a select few long tracks. never get board.

What Are You Playing?
Lately I've been playing a little bit of the BF3 beta, and a lot of the Diablo 3 beta.

Do You Like It?

BF3: Sort of
Diablo 3 beta: Yes!

Why?

BF3: I find the game to be only ok. I feel that the game places a lot of emphasis on gear. I also have experienced a lot of small glitches that take away from the fun of the game. It also sort of feels a bit too much like another COD, and I feel that the hit detection is a bit wonky.

Maybe I am just getting tired of military FPS games. I never really played any of the new COD games, and I just couldn't get into BC2. I guess that everyone's tastes in games is different.

Diablo 3: I have had a lot of fun with this beta. So far my favorite classes are the barbarian and the wizard. I made a witch doctor, but haven't really played with him much. Wasn't really thrilled by the characters feel. I still need to try out demon hunter and monk.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much replayability the game offers. In order to get your character above ~lvl8 you have to keep redoing the last quest. I think I have clocked in over 6hrs with my barbarian. I do wish that Blizzard had made normal mode a bit harder.

I do wish that Diablo 3 was being released this year, but IMO they really delayed it till 2012 for only a few reasons.

1. The auction house is really broken - There is no way that Blizzard can have the issues the current gold only auction house is having with the real money one. There are a lot of kinks to work out.

2. Only real-id friends in enabled, and an employee on the forum stated that they were working on implementing an in-game character name friends list.

Once you reach ~lvl 10 you bulldozer through everything. I will be preordering this game. However, I'm going to wait on the preorder until I know what collectors edition comes with.

Red Orchestra 2. I just love the mechanics of the game versus the frantic insane twitch fest of games like COD.

It was released very buggy but Tripwire has been diligent in releasing patches.
They released a 3gig patch last night which improved game play across the board and the stats are being reset today.

I'm playing Diablo 2 on "the way back machine"---windows 98 ftl with a fat old crt monitor. Not even on the net and just got my wolf druid to Nightmare. I like it because it's a bit mindless and relaxing with moments of panic.

currently playing Fallout New Vegas. I played the first two fallouts and never went back, until I picked up Fallout3 one day. That game gave me so many headaches with crashes and lockups, i got so angry at it i wiped it off my HD. i was browsing steam, saw FO:NV for decently cheap and decided to pick it up. No bugs, no lag, no random memory bleeding and crashing every 2 minutes. This game is seriously fun to play, many different avenues to take and a fairly good story line so far. I think the reason i love this game so much atm is because the last game i played was horrendous on my computer, so it's nice to have a smooth running game again
