Fave Video Games
Matt (Footytube Staff) 7 years ago
Dunno if this thread has been done before a quick search seemed to indicate not.

So here is you chance to answer these questions:

What is you favourite retro game(s)?

What are you playing now?

What games are you looking forward to?

I think we can leave FIFA and PES for the other threads so if we take it that they are implied that may mean a more interesting thread.

I'll start.

Fave retro game(s) in no particular order are:
Tekken 2 (playstation) - awesome after pub sessions with this, annoyed mates when I learned a 10 hit combo.

Ffvii (playstation) - Took over my life for a while

International Superstar Soccer (snes) - Also known as Winning Hero Eleven was the forerunner to the current PES games and taught me the delights of a rasping 50 yd drive.

Playing now.
Call of Duty World at War (Xbox 360) - Still die more times than I kill but still have fun

Bad Company (PS3) - Bit easier to get into then the above and a lobby system that doesn't throw me into matches I don't have the maps for.

Mgs4 (PS3) - First game I think to really bridge the gap between film and games there is a lot of watching rather than playing but story is compelling so it gets away with it.

Gears of War 2 (Xbox360) - My disc is scratched so I'm stuck halfway through the solo mission, multiplayer is good.

Looking forward to:

Batman Arkham Asylum (either) - Played demo of this and it is very good looks the nuts and plays well. Slight worry gameplay may be repetitive but have to wait and see.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (either) - These games just get better so this should just be blinding.

I'm not sure.... I may have been....  I've always disliked nintento for some reason lol  Maybe I'm crazy

I used to love California games on the master system, all the events were awesome apart from Haggy sacking which was kinda lame.

They don't seem to make very many of these sports compilation games anymore apart from Wii Sports I can't think of any, can you?

Gosh, that clip of Fifa 98 took me waaaay back. Great memories...

Lol Thanks Matt that confirms it that it was on Nintendo as well because I remember the Haggy Sacking game distinctively. Lol It wasn't even a sack it was a white dot! Do you happen to remember the rollerskating one as well, where you had to dodge the cracks and the oil slicks on the side walk lol?!

I play GoW2 quite a bit. I think the multiplayer is class besides the host issues.... I'm also into Fallout 3 and Mass Effect.

I'm looking forward to Alpha Protocol, COD: MW2 of course, Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising, FIFA 10, and Assassins Creed 2.
