Video games?

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

Video games?

Ok mes Amis, there surely must be some gamers amongst you!
What do y'all play when you're not obsessing over 19th century French boys? :lol:

I love Wii ping-pong. :) I can beat anyone at Wii baseball too. I don't play Wii too often, though I thoroughly enjoy playing it.

Wii ping pong is awesome. It's on the "Wii sports resort" game.
Another story must begin...

Darn, I only have vanilla Wii sports :(

Anyway, I'm an RPG girl. Card carrying Bioware fan :D The Elder Scrolls series is a big favourite of mine too. I like the occasional beat em' up, but mostly the Soul Calibur games, which are fantastically cheesy but do have cute guys with pretty hair and swords. And I like god sims, particularly the Sim City series (not the Sims though) and the Civilization games more recently. Add in some retro gaming like the original F-Zero, some more social stuff like Guitar Hero and some downright quirky nonsense like Phoenix Wright, and that's probably most of my gaming covered :)

The Sims 2 on a PC! :mrgreen: I have a copy of the Sims 3, but it takes FOREVER to load and freezes constantly. :?

On the Wii, I LOVE the Just Dance series since it keeps me active. :)

Wii baseball is amazing! :D I really can't stand Wii golf on the other hand...

Strategy: Supremacy1914, Napoleonic Wars (yeah yeah)...stuff like that.
FPS: hmm...so many games I've played. Currently I revisit an old friend of mine, Delta Force:Black Hawk Down. :)

The ping pong game is also on Wii play. :)

I agree completely Amy. Wii golf stinks. I'm also not a fan of Wii pool.

I tried Wii Sword Play once... But the controller just takes too long in registering my actions, which is deadly in fencing (a fast sport by definition), so I'm declaring that one broken...

I'm a fan of the Assassin's Creed series and currently playing Brotherhood (I already played about half of each game on my brother's 360, but now I've got a copy for PC, so I'll finally get those 100% sync for which I never had the playing time before...) These games also showed me again that I like platforming and stealth, so I'll get my hands on the Thief-series again once I'm done (I did play them on a friend's computer some twelve years ago, so let's see if they were great or if it's just nostalgia) and also try out Prince of Persia (the Sands of Time-trilogy, not the new one).

And, like everybody and their cat, I loved both Portal-games.

I also enjoy the Edna & Harvey and Sherlock Holmes-series of Point-and-Click-Adventures. Unfortunately, they have little replay-value...

I sometimes play FPS's, usually Call of Duty or Halo, but only the multi-player with my brother or friends. None of them ever interested me enough to sit through the single-player campaign for longer than an hour or so. But I have heard good things about Half-Life...

For parties, Guitar Hero, Rockband etc. are a lot of fun...

Had an embarrassingly long stage during which I was playing Crash Bandicoot. Then there was the entire Tekken series, as well as Marvel vs. Capcom. :lol: :lol:

I've also been into "Left 4 Dead", and games as silly as "Plants vs. Zombies". The game I want to win now is "Pandemic 2".

Oh man, yes, Plants vs. Zombies... How can such a small and silly game have such addictive qualities?

I remember how that game pretty much caused a huge drop in grades across my university. In fact it's part of the reason that a friend failed at least one assignment, another forgot to write his concept paper for his thesis, and I nearly flubbed organic chemistry.
