I figure we might as well have the full set.

Currently I'm playing Project Zero 2 (aka Fatal Frame 2) on the PS2. It's good, but the camera has been made less intuitive than in the first game, and it wasn't that easy to start off with! Not sure if this one is as scary either, but it's giving out some nice horror montage footage early on, which the first game held on to until the last night of the game, which not many people got to (it was worth it though!).

A couple of days ago I played through Strider on the PS1. Strider is a game that I have loved since it came out... Which I think was 16 years ago. I can normally finish it in about half an hour, maybe less. The PS1 version is a good copy of the original arcade machine and has all the voice samples, but I preferred the slight remix that was released on the Megadrive/Genesis because it had better music and a better end sequence.

I've also just restarted Medievil on the PS1. The graphics are very ropey by today's standards, but the gameplay is all still there, and those regional accents are still fantastic!

Oh, and I've been playing a bit more Spider Solitaire on Windows than I really should, too!

What are you playing?

PC - Guild Wars. Lots of Guild Wars. With an occasional Sims 2 now and again.
GameCube - SSX3. Love that game. I always play as Zoe, she's so hardcore. \m/ (>_<) \m/

Heh. Jonman made this topic first!

Anyway, I'm playing Tales of Symphonia and an assortment of fighting games.

Recently I have been playing cat & mouse, rounders, tennis(ish), volley ball(ish) and 'card board boxes were made for hiding in and protecting oneself from dodgeball attacks'. All in all, a good day in the sun today biggrin.gif

On a more computery note tongue.gif, I played Lemmings ( a Christmas edition I think) last week, which was mucheous fun!

Zoe is always my favourite character too. I think I preferred the the tracks on SSX2 myself, the boundaries were more clearly defined. I often find that I think 'oo, I wonder what's over that small ridge' only to find myself warped back to the track. If you're going to tell people that they can find their own way down the mountain then I figure they really should give you pretty much a whole big chunk of a mountain to go down!

It does get rolled out when I'm lapsing between other titles, but I'm running out of characters to max out on their stats! With Zoe I've got all gold, and I even found every hidden item on all the tracks. Now that took some doing!

and you say animating takes up all your time? tongue.gif

Guild Wars is taking up a lot of my time just recently, it's a lot of fun and I've gotten bloody far. I've also given Viewtiful Joe another go recently, but I got to a hard boss, tried for about an hour, gave up and played Guild Wars tongue.gif

Escape Velocity: Nova (for Mac OS X or *shudder*Windows). It's a modern game which feels very much like Elite in 2D. Very addictive and it proves the fact that games don't have to be 3D to be fun.

*rolls up sleeves*

Working my way through Star Ocean:Till the end of time.
Also continuing to plug away at Phantom Brave.
Currently playing lots of Pool Paradise, as me and Kat can play together.
Also Detonator (budget PS2 puzzler - 2 thumbs up).
And Burnout 3 (determined to finish that one).
Having a bash at Luigi's Mansion, as I've hardly played it since buying it a year ago.
Slowly working through Halo 2.
Occasionally dip into Frequency and Project Gotham 2.
Toying with Theme Park World.

Currently on back burner to get back into:
Paper Mario 2
Baten Kaitos
FFX-2
Ico

Things I've not played for blimmin' ages, but do have the best intentions of getting back into:
Zelda:Wind Waker (still need to finish off the last tenth of the game).
Mario Sunshine.
Metroid Prime

This list will change in a couple of weeks when Kat gets back from Seattle in a couple of weeks with a suitcase filled with cheap software.

I second the last three of Jonman's games. Same reasons, too.

I've finished all of the last three games and felt decidedly unimpressed by them, and in particular Zelda.

Mario was nice, but lacked character, then again the only Mario that I have _really_ enjoyed was Super Mario Brothers on the NES. The others are nicely designed but have never really gripped me. Bear in mind though that I've never played Mario 64, which I'm told is the best. For 3D platforming there are three pinacles for me: Jak & Daxter, Soul Reaver on the PS1, and the original Tomb Raider. All of these had great character design as well as brilliant level layout. I just don't think I like to be controlling a tubby, moustachioed plumber.

Metroid Prime I will probably return to, although I'm not sure if that's because I want to or because I want to feel like I've not missed something.

I missed out one from my list: Internet Reversi on the Windows system. I often have a couple of games to relax before I go to bed. I'm probably playing more of this than anything else at the moment!

I'm currently playing about 4 games right now. First off are my PS2 games, Final Fantasy X-2, The last chapter and part 4 of the . hack series. Hack Quarantine, And Inuyasha the secret of the cursed mask. I'm also replaying (Because my 5 year old cousin deleted my data on my Xbox) Jet set radio future, 1 of my favorite games because it involves one of my favorite things to do, rollerblading! XD

I forgot about the games I'm returning to... Skies of Arcadia Legends.

I'm also playing Tales of Symphonia, but that's just because I have gaming ADD that forces me to play multiple games unless I am _gripped_.

I'm playing far too much guildwars than is healthy at the moment, and despite my late start I'm slowly creeping up on becoming a good player. Though, that said, I still have a long way to go, as I'm not even finished the shiverpeaks yet...

I spent way to much time playing Startopia and will probably do so again when I have a better shiney box.

Tend to look on online games like Typershark, Insaniquarium and other Popcap goodness. Though every now and again launching dogs at undead kitties just calls to me and I wander over to the Other Side.

Jonman and I played Pong on a huge wall-projector. I think I won, but I could be wrong. I definitely beat him on an original Spacewar machine. It's amazing how much fun you can still have with such old games!

I not only kicked your ass, but I attached it to a rocket and shot it into space. At Pong.

You did beat me at Spacewar though. Although it wasn't running on the orignal hardware - it was an 80's console version (I want to say Intellivision, but I could very well be wrong).
