    As an avid gamer, who has played on many platforms since SEGA Mastersystem, i thought i should start a thread for all gamers to discuss their favourite games and gaming moments or upcoming games.
    This can also be a place for you to share gamertags for whatever system you play on. I'll start with my tags.

    I only game on PC these days so my tags are:

    Steam/origin:

    edgey642

    Games For Windows LIVE/XBOX LIVE:

    When I finally finish my PGCE, I'll have my xbox live account back up and running.
    Suspended it whilst at uni because the accommodation services don't support it... bandwidth issues apparently... cheap bastards!
    gamertag - PDG7

    Would have bought MW3, BF3 etc but just don't see the point without the ability of playing them online.

    Mass Effect 3 and SSX are my next games for purchase!

    Your right, without online access your only really getting bout 25% of the game when playing MW3 or BF3... The single player modes are so short and, in Battlefield's case especially, absolutely nothing like the multiplayer (which is what makes this game)

    I've been playing a few single player games recently inbetween bouts on BF3, my favourite has to be Batman Arkham City! Absolutely brilliant game!!
    Just started Tomb Raider Underworld (bought in the steam sale) it aint too bad but it doesn't really do anything different to other games in it's genre and other games do it better... The best being Uncharted series.

    Looking forward to Mass Effect 3 although i never got round to finishing 2 and now ive sold my Xbox im not sure whether to get it on PC and start over again (but this of course means i can't continue with the choices i made in the first game coz i played it on xbox)

    Also recently bought both Dead Spa e 1 & 2 for ?ú6.50 on Steam! Completed the first but never played the 2nd so looking forward to that one too. Got so many games to get through i won't be buying any more for a couple months atleast

    How could you not have played the sequel yet, knowing how the first one ended!? lol
    Dead Space 2 is amazing, you should thoroughly enjoy it... I love how the game producer uses sound alone to create this horrific ambience which makes me crap my pants!

    Skyrim > all. Seriously one of the greatest games I've ever played. Taking a bit of a break after racking up around 90 hours, and currently playing BF3 again.

    Great game... but i'm not sure it has much re-play value once completed.
    Btw, I traded it in recently and can confirm you do not get much money at all for it because apparently there's no demand for it... which i find surprising.

    I've heard nothing but amazing things about this game. Unfortunately it's something i have to stay away from atm due to the limited amount of time on my hands... definitely one of the summer though. 90 hours is pretty damn impressive!

    Had to be done... I want this game so much that I'm struggling to hold my brick together! No word of a release date either which is excruciating.

    Been jamming GT5 quite a bit lately. Anyone play on here?

    I don't quite understand the B-Spec events - are you some kind of a coach? After creating a driver every race goes horribly wrong. Am I missing something?

    GTA 5 is looking tasty indeed! Not long ago i bought GTA 4 on PC just to play with some of the mods... The graphics mods make it look like GTA 6 and thats no exaggeration! Plus real car mods so you can boot it round Liberty City in a nice shiny R8 or Lambo ;)
    You do need a fairly meety PC to run some of these graphic enhancing mods tho thats the only problem.

    If you haven't played Mafia 2 yet and are a GTA fan I recommend giving this one a go... Graphics are nice, set inbetween 40's and 60's i believe? It's taken bits from all the best gangster films too like Goodfellas, Casino, Bronx Tale, etc. Driving mechanic feels a bit crap at times and some of the hand to hand set pieces are a little frustrating but other than that it's a brilliant game. Alot more linear than GTA but the story is excellent and has some great twists plus you still have a huge city you can free-roam inbetween missions. Can get this one pretty cheap now as it's been out for a while.

    Skyrim is just brilliant! Again if your not online this game is ideal. Will cost you a few hrs of your social life but it's a game you can keep going back to! I often play this if im having a 'mare on BF3 just to change the pace... So many side missions too that you can never really get stuck! Absolutely recommend this to anyone.

    Games im looking forward to this year are GTA 5, Mass Effect 3, Hitman, Diablo 3 and Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.... Thats all i can think of at the mo

    EDIT: was on my phone so didn't see the embedded videos posted on this thread. So to add to that list Max Payne 3!! And There's a standalone add on for Shogun Total War 2 (meaning you don't need original game to play it) call Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai... Anyone who see the film Last Samurai with Tom Cruise, well this is based on the same era as the film. Could almost say it's a game of the film? SO definately looking forward to that!


    Yeah I know what you mean and will have to play Dead Space through again to relive the drama as I played it when it first came out on Xbox then sold my Xbox before getting Dead Space 2, hence why I hadn't gotten round to it yet... But at ?ú6.50 for the pair I could not turn that down!!

    This game along with GHod of War 3 and Killzone 2 & 3 were the reasons I bought a PS3 (Back in 2010). I loved GT5 and I played B-Spec for a little bit, purely to unlock more cars and cash. It is a strange mode, kind of like a driver manager I spose, but once you get the hang of it and your driver levels up and starts winning races (the right car is also crucial as AI doesn't handle the car aswel as you can) it is quite a rewarding mode. Not just for the cars and cash either. Of course had to sell my PS3 aswel as my Xbox (was in financial bother at the time and a pothole had cost me ?ú200 in new alloy wheel+tyre) so never got to finish this one either. Also gutted I never finished Uncharted 2 (got right to the end) or got to play Uncharted 3 as I loved these games!
    But I'm a PC gamer now and very much doubt I'll go back to consoles again. PC's may be expensive from the offset but PC gaming in general is so cheap. Never pay more than ?ú15 a game unless it's a must have blockbuster (Battlefield 3 and Skyrim) which means I now have a huge digital catalogue of some of the best games ever released ;)

    EDIT EDIT: sorry for the huge posts :p

    i thought GHod of war 3 was brilliant. but i've still not played the others in the series, so no idea how it compares.
    skyrim is also my current favourite game. i can't see myself needing anything else to play for awhile, even though i have a huge stack of games in a pile somewhere waiting...

    If you liked GHod of War 3 then you should like GHod of War 2 but you may find GHod of War a little too dated? You can buy them both together and they've been slightly polished in HD for the PS3. I also heard they're making a 4th!? And possibly a movie...

    i'm sure i won't find it dated. i still play commodore 64 games...
    i do actually have the GHod of war collection sitting here in my office (not got round to taking it home even), but it's on the list. it's a big list.

    Yeah thats the one, I got halway through GoW1 and completed GoW2 with a friend... was one of my favourite games along with Onimushu untill GoW3 came out. I've seemingly moved onto FPS games in recent times but would love them to do another Onimushu or GHod of War! And of course another Batman would be welcome too

    I got Uncharted 2 free with the PS3 but never really played it. Do you rate it?

    Yes rate it as one of the best games on the PS3! It is highly rated generally, I think it's average review score is prob bout 90% so well worth a go
