Calling all PC gamers. Down with the console!

Anyway, finally cracked and pre-ordered COD Ghosts. I play hardcore objective game modes. Would be cool to play with some fellow jazzfanzers.

I know FPS's are lame but I like games I can jump in and then jump out of. I just haven't been able to get into fantasy, RPGs for a while now.

I'm pretty big on Civilization but I've only played single player.

What kind of RPG's do you like?

I love Medieval concepts and even though it's been criticized for the lack of RPG elements, I was playing Skyrim while adding mod after mod which makes the game awesome, but I have had no time for the last 1,5 months working everyday for 13 hours having nothing left for home to play more than a 2K game. Really annoying for a guy that loved PC games for the last 15 years.

FPSs are not lame. They are the backbone of the gaming industry and the starting point for everything we have now (think Wolfenstein/Doom/Doom 2, etc.). That said I play a lot of FPS games, looking forward to COD Ghosts. The COD titles have been some of my favorites. But mostly I play online MMP FPS games. Largely this was kicked off and popularized with Quake Arena, which was great, and currently I play a lot of Combat Arms (free to play korean FPS online, pretty decent engine, good graphics, nothing ground-breaking but playable and fun). I played Civ, and then migrated to Evony, in which I built some alliances and completely took over a few servers, until botting/scripting started ruining the game. I play some Starcraft/Diablo but those types of games never really did it for me. Neither have the GTA titles. They always seemed boring and pointless. And adding sex scenes and torture porn does little if anything to improve them.

Lately I just have almost no time so I, like GF, prefer a game I can jump in and out of quickly, kill a half hour here and there without giant time commitments, and leave alone for long stretches and come back to with nothing really changing, so not playing many persistent games (RPG/RTS etc.), because if I can't get online for a week at a time I don't want my world to be decayed to nothing when I get back to it.

I have also been trying some steam titles. Some of them are fun decently priced, fairly simple to figure out, then fun to come back to again and again. But a lot of them are derivative, can be very glitchy and boring. Kind of a crap shoot. If you go that route definitely get into the forums to try to weed out the crap.

League of Legends consumed my life for a while, but I broke the addiction. And I got a killer machine out of it as I built my comp for the frame rate and game play.

GF check out Combat Arms if you have a good internet connection and decent comp. Don't need anything extravagant but a 3 year old vid card might be taxed a little to give smooth game-play. It's fun and easy to get into.

Almost forgot the other game that consumed me for a while: Crysis, every title. Completely immersive. Love it.

Last RPG I played was like Final Fantasy on Super Nintendo. I exaggerated a bit when I said a while now.

I think I like COD because I'm good at it. Like top level good. Not trying to brag but I can name about 5 players who can consistently beat me.

Okay, 3 players. Maybe I'll think of the other two later...

Maybe you just suck at it
Lot of pissed players. Hearing a lot of complaints over chat and no one sticking up for this version. There's always an adjustment period, especially since they alternate developers between Infinity Ward and Treyarch for each release, but this game just seems like junk.

My biggest gripe is that the characters move very slowly, like they're running in mud. There's very little fluidity. It's frustrating. In previous versions quick reflexes made a big difference. Running, jumping, diving, acrobatic moves that flowed and gave the player an exciting perspective. Now this one feels like your feet are chained to the floor and you're trudging along being held back. I just don't get what they were thinking.

I suppose movement speed is fixable so maybe that part will get better. Fingers crossed.

Visually it's nothing to write home about.

My only positive is that the maps "feel" bigger than BO2 maps. But maybe that's because it takes so long to move around.
