Windows 7: What Games Are You Playing?

i was trying to understand that one too - both mass effects are basically third-person shooters, and what could be better than mouse and keyboard for shooters? even the defaults are good.

i thought me2 was too short, or maybe i did it wrong the first time around. i'd just finished assembling my team together, sorted out their problems, and very soon it was game over. i haven't tried any of the dlc yet, may have to check out shadow broker.

isn't it sad that they only sell you half the game to start with?

which leads me nicely onto my next subject: like others, personally i'm going through a 'bored-of-gaming' patch too.

i don't really feel like going through new vegas or me2 again yet. i'm still enjoying bc2 and vietnam, but really need something for those quieter times.

one of my fave games over the last five years is/was medieval 2, so i bought king arthur on the recent steam sale, but just can't get into it. maybe i should start another med 2 campaign...? i've got empire and napoleon, but don't really like the rifle combat - i much prefer swords, spears, bows and arrows etc.

although probably my fave slow pc game of all time is the legendary sid meier's alpha centauri from 1999 - i keep looking at the box thinking i should see if it works on win 7...civ v was a huge disappointment...

come to think of it, my second fave slow pc game was also released in 1999 - warzone 2010. i may have to start playing that again too, as it's been open-sourced and updated in the last few years.

maybe i'm just getting old, but retro-gaming ftw! 1999 - when the pc really was top of the gaming world. any other oldies here remember those games?

Here's something that's strange for me.

I've been a first person shooter gamer most my "gaming" life. Started playing PC games in 98 and my all-time fav is Unreal. Anyway for me it was all about FPS.... then I bought Dragon Age: Awakening on release day because of the commercial hype. However I didn't play it until about 4 months ago because even though I bought it, it really wasn't my type of game.... so I thought.

Well after finally playing it, not only did I thoroughly enjoy it, I went out and bought the expansion. Man I love the story, and I thought the graphics were awesome.

Anyways it seems that the games I've played after it.... mainly Fallout New Vegas, Metro 2033, and Mirror's edge (can't get into the game play) haven't been able to hold my attention like Dragon Age did. And again, this is a genre I never thought I'd get into (Fantasy RPG).

Anyway I need a game with a good story line to keep me awake. Thus far those games have been Bioshock 1, Mass Effect 1 & 2, and Dragon Age.

BTW I'm eagerly awaiting the release of Dragon Age 2, and Mass Effect 3. Also looking forward to Dead Space 2, which is also in my top five list of favorite games.

FPS…..
Unreal
Farcry (first one)
FEAR (first one)
Bioshock (first one)
Dead Space

RPG….
Mass Effect 1 & 2
Dragon Age: Origins
Fallout 3 (loved the story)

controversial list!

no hl2 nor bf2 in top shooters? then there's the epic original cod and mohaa...

i'm appalled!

like yourself, i'm new to rpg - i always thought swords and magic wasn't my style, but i too really enjoyed dragon age - it was just so well written and the voice acting was superb - especially alistair and morrigan. it wouldn't have been the same without them, in my opinion.

alastair: (steve valentine)



morrigan: (claudia black)



did you notice morrigan's voice in a small role in me2? i can't remember who she was now - maybe one of the quarians at tali's trial, i think? she wasn't that good there.

I got it for 10. Dunno why I didn't buy the two days it was 3.50, but for 50% off, still not bad.

I dunno how, but I forgot my mouse and keyboard as well when I moved home for Christmas last week, so I've been using a crappy spare set. I thought I'd manage with this spare set, but I can't bare to play another game on a PS/2 keyboard
there a few PC games that don't play easily via the keyboard..

- Batman:Arkham Manor and Mass Effect are a couple..
- anybody know of others..??

- Sheesh, I really must get a 360 controller..!!
I can play things like Arkham Asylum and Mass Effect no problems with a keyboard and prefer using a keyboard for things like RPGs and FPS games. I got my 360 controller for games like FIFA, which are a real pain in the arse to play, and games like Dirt2 are a lot more enjoyable with a control pad.

She did a few voices if I remember correctly. She did a Quarian's voice, I think an Asari and the Rachni when that Asari gives you the message.

As far as I know, the 360 controller will not work in ME 1 or 2 for the PC will it?

Since the UI was changed to suit the PC.

Hmm .. Gonna have to check it out real fast, I may be mistaken.
Never thought much about it as I prefer Mouse & Keyboard for most FPS games.

Even if ME games did support it, I wouldn't use it. I can't stand FPS/RPG games with control pads. The only RPG I'll play on console is Zelda games. When I played Call of Duty with some friends on 360 I hated every second of it, lol.

Oh yeah, mouse and keyboard are perfect. The gameplay is more satisfying that way.

How anyone can play a shooter on PC with a controller is beyond me. I had Fallout New Vegas on PS3 and exchanged that for Gran Turismo 5. I also have Fallout 3 on PS3 but you dont have an option to aim down the sights on that one. I will give New Vegas a go on the PC as I do like the story.
