q1: I'm wondering what games people are mostly playing (their focus of gaming pleasure)?
q2: Will this be drastically changed within 90 days? meaning what are you playing now? Any major moves within short run?
my answers: I play MxO on PC & SmashBros Brawl on WII (mostly with family).
Within 90 days, no chance of adding on more excitement -- I got full time job so time stretch is my hinderance.
why I ask: I ask because low numbers of people logging onto MxO (yes not that shocking) so wondering what's biggest games still being played, factor's of fatigue, REAL LIFE main catylst or just other gaming distractions arising?
Silly question Ave! With Brawl and GTA IV out, it's quite obvious. For my part it's the latter, and I'm actually replaying (and modding as hell) my old copy of San Andreas. So much fun
Actually I find San Andreas more fun, but unlike everyone else on forums, i'm not bashing GTA IV, because I for one know that they built the engine from scratch and it already took alot of work to get what there is in it. And I enjoyed it. But hey, SA's moddable! Isn't that awesome?!
Oh, and I'm on a House M.D. rampage. I just completed season 2. Man that show rocks, but it gets me all paranoid about being sick. The season 2 finale had a guy who's tongue got so big he couldn't breathe, and eventually his eye popped out. Soooooo gross!!! you see the glue and everything, yuuuuck!!! Oh, and did I mentionned his scrotum exploded? Yeah... And what's House's idea to cure him? Why, drill the hell out of his body with a machine, tearing it in two pieces, killing the guy on the table.
So that's what i've been up to, video/game related. And yeah, I'm not really often on MxO these days, mostly because the only thing keeping me on it is people, and since people are obviously missing for obvious reasons... yeah, you do the math
I recently got Alpha Centauri working on windows XP so I'm playing that now (Just gotta find a way to have it open and MxO at the same time). SSBB isn't even released in Aus yet so that's a non-issue, not to mention I don't own a Wii and all the controllers for my Gamcube are at my brothers house so I can't even play SSBM.
House is the bomb. When I get older I wanna be just like him (And yes I know the episode you are talking about).
Apart from all that the crazy hours at work are making it hard for me, 4.30am to 1pm really screws with your body clock.
Answer 1: Due to a self imposed game ban designed to give me more study time I haven't been playing many games at all these past 8 months. My little brother picked up a Wii awhile back and has Smash Brawl which is cool. I played it with him maybe twice but haven't touched a console game besides that. Its a huge accomplishment seeing as I easily have 60+ PS2 games. I play a few flash based games or text based mmo's here or there but that too is few and far between. If I get real desperate I will play either Star Trek Elite Force 2 or Star Trek Bridge Commander on the PC for a bit just to ease my no video game blues. ( I AM IN NO WAY A TREKKIE, just a minor Star Trek fan with mild denial issues )
Answer 2: I think in 90 days this God awful no gaming situation will change in a big way. I'm still on course for a July return to MXO. (hold your applause people ) Further I will be picking up a PS3 on June 12th. Why so specific you ask? www.destructoid.com/mgs4-ps3-bundle-has-everything-you-need-including-backwards-compatibility-72509.phtml Funny thing is I already brought GTA4 for the PS3 but at this moment I don't own the console. Good thing is my patience paid off big time and since my birthday is the day before I will be getting a PS3 (which has a built in blu-ray player so I can watch House in high def) and an EPIC game all on my family and friends dollars. Hooray for being frugal.
Now if you all don't know about Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - the latest installment of arguably the greatest series in console gaming history, allow me to get you up to speed.

I play mostly MxO... ...but when i get bored of it, i play Battlefield 2 or Counter-Strike. I like BF2 because it has a ranking system and im already 3 Star Commander. No changes since 1 Year. MxO eats most of my time.
I've gone oldschool and started playing the old C&C games. Finished Red Alert as the Allies and Soviets, Finished all of Tiberian Sun + Expansion except for the original GDI missions (Working on them), Red Alert 2 as Allies and Soviets, Yuri's Revenge as Allies and Soviets. You can definitely see a drop in the overall polish and quality of the games after EA bought out Westwood =(
I'm kindof in the same boat as gedwyn. The only video game I've played when I'm not in EMT school, or working my engineering position (or on-call as usual), or working on my house...I'm playing Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles on the Wii.
Sephiroth X: I'm shocked this forum is still up and running. I got super nostalgic for MxO and somehow found my way back. I miss you guys.

Rycus: Merry Christmas everyone. I haven't read any books and lately only game I've played is Ark. Pretty sad when I'm not even up to playing Magic which I've played for 25 years. And this place isn't ever going anywhere.
