What game/s are you currently playing through? I decided to dig out Doom 3 as I have never managed to finish it, last time I played it I returned from hell and for some reason stopped playing. Im also playing Race driver: GRID and Red Alert 3. What about you guys?

I was interested in Cryostasis but I downloaded the demo and couldn't get it to run, something to do with the PhysX, it didn't like it being switched off, but of course I have an ati card so I cant use it. Either way the game wouldn't run.

I have Farcry 2 but if I admit I got a little bored with it, Crysis distracted me and I havent revisited it since. I do plan to once ive finished a few of my other games.

Ive always thought Timeshift was a bad game (all the reviewers say its not very good) I presume that I am wrong in this assumption?

I don't game much, but I really enjoy playing GRID and used to also play it online as well. I've stopped doing that though as some rogue players have pretty much spoiled the game play. I am tempted to get Fuel.

I've mostly been playing an old game called Test Drive Unlimited. I like open and free driving games like this one, its why I like the GTA games and Just Cause.

Must fire up MOH Airbourne Assault, Stalker and several other games I started but never finished. When my new rigs is finally up and running I might be able to play GTA 4 properly as well.

Counter Strike 1.6 I know it's old, but it is fun and there is a bejillion people playing it online. Thats all I play really. I do have a RailRoad sim. My pals laugh cause I got a pretty bad A** PC and only play CS 1.6 I'd like to try other games too but just never get around to it.

Doom 3 is a major fail. Try better games. Practically most famous FPSs in the last 3 years exceed doom 3 by far.
Doom 3 was also voted worst game of the year (level magazine pool).

I thought doom 3 was half decent and quite enjoyed it.

Can I ask what magazine/company awarded it 'worst game of the year'? From what I can tell it mostly got positive ratings.

You seem to be missing the point, the game didn't set out to have really intelligent AI or an incredibly deep plot. It hearkens back to shooters of the 90's where the mission is simple, survive and shoot anything that moves.

Its the atmosphere that makes the game, playing it at night with all the lights turned off whilst wearing headphones = awesome, im a grown man but this game still makes me jump out of my skin.

IMO for a game released 5 years ago it has really good graphics, ive noticed up close wall textures arent that sharp, but when your blazing through the game blasting whatever hell throws at you you dont tend to notice little imperfections like this, generally the graphics are good.

the only thing I hated in Doom3 is the ultra shadow which doesnt make you see anything and whats with the Damage with the uber weapons in Quake 4????

besides I bought grid and fallout 3 like 5 months ago but cant play them due to my uber x550, that why I'm getting a 8400gs in a couple of days(even the 9500gt is hellishly expensive!), my grandma who's in the us will buy me a GTS 250 namely this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/...x?Item=N82E16814162029 and them I'll use the 8400gs as a physx processor,

serbusfish, I'll even check for the original poll where the game was voted WGOTY; should still be there.

Now I play Prototype. The game is not much, but it's somewhat fun to play. You play with a god-like dude that pwnz anything from civilians to tanks and fliers.
I was waiting for Red Faction 3 now, but the PC version got canceled 'till autumn.

I've been playing GRID, Sims 3 and Fallout 3 (I'm a huge Fallout Franchise Geek and have been playing it since its release). Now my PC's been down for quite a while (1 month of issues) so these are the games I've played only the past couple of days. GRID rocks with the Xbox Controller.

Did you also play the 3 addons of Fallout 3 ? A 4th one is on the way.

NFS:Most Wanted with a hack to play in 1680x1050 (progression through the blacklist gets boring, but level 5 cop chases are loads of fun)
NFS:Carbon @ 1680x1050 as well
Halo PC (working on a legendary campaign)
Witcher (came free with the MSI SLI board in my sig)
Bioshock

I can't rationalize spending $30-60 for new release games, so I wait a while for them to show up at the local used bookstore or they get reduced to $20 in price. That's why I am so woefully behind the times.
