My mostest favoritest RPG of all time is the KOTOR series. I really hope there's a 3rd installment.

FFVI and FFVII were also my favorites FFs, as flawed as they were

Star ocean 2/3 are really fun. Storylines aren't great (if a little unique) and the voice acting (SO3) is decent. The battle system is my favorite of any rpg, its got problems (enemies can sandwich you and layeth the smackdown) but overall is highly addictive.

Yakuza = fun title, but non-stop loadtimes from just walking around, repetitive combat, and possibly the "most cliche and lame ending in a current-gen game ever" bring it down.

I've begun Splinter Cell: Double Agent on ps2. Graphics/framerate are horrible, but it's playable. Thought it would be similar to the "Hitman" series, but there's less emphasis on killing and (from playing the first level) the environments are lacking. (no doubt to the ps2's limitations)

Homeworld: Cataclysm - awesome/awesome
Fallout 2 - awesome/awesome
Syndicate Wars - awesome/awesome

I haven't been playing any games lately so I don't have much to offer in the way of ratings/reviews. I did just try to play Syn Wars recently and all it did was remind me of how insanely awesome it was (did not play correctly in DOSbox). I wish it had been a hit and I could look forward to a sequel.

FF VI is the greatest FF of all time, one of the greatest rpgs period. Tactics is second, VII comes in at a not too distant third.
Never really liked FF:Tactics as much as everyone else did. Too much emphasis on the "learn hundreds of deadly ninja special technique" side of character development. IMHO, Tactics Ogre and Missionforce: Cyberstorm were better games.

FF:T is still a good game though. FF:T Advanced on the other hand...

I converted from primary computer gamer to primary console gamer due to KOTOR. Excellent games, but difficulty is odd. It's downright simple to become "Rampaging Light Side Jedi of Death". But for those that aren't familiar with the D20 system, it can be fairly difficult. Combat is also kinda odd due to the use of the D20 system. Melee characters are much more powerful than ranged characters, especially when you toss in sabers.

Dunno about the lessened emphasis on killing. It's very much a "Travel the world... Meet interesting people... and shank them." kinda game. Definitely more emphasis on stealth, less on shooting than Hitman though.

I just played a couple of hours of Ninja Gaiden on my friend's Xbox 360. Holy crap this game is amazing, I haven't played a game in so long that actually rewards patience and skill.

Thread Starter 
Sweet to see this thread bumped Been playing Guild Wars like crazy, going back and forth between Factions and the latest one. For anyone not familiar, it's an MMORPG with no monthly fee. I chose a fire elementalist (in game terms - a nuker), very serious damage in a short amount of time to a group. I had the pleasure of finding a large group (~20) enemies all in close proximity yesterday and cast a few of my fav spells. Normally I wouldn't stand a chance if these guys were spread out across the map but I smiled ear to ear when I saw yellow "-XXXHP"s across the entire screen over and over again

I did get Zelda for the Wii that I just haven't been able to get into yet. I think it might be because the graphics don't seem nearly as enticing as other next-gen titles. I don't mind pixelated 2D at all but when it comes to 3D it can be slightly bothersome. I'll just have to look past it though because I'm sure it's a great game.

I've been playing Shadow of the Colossus lately and I think its fantastic. I also got ICO out in the spirit of things.

Looking forward to FFXII being released over in the UK, we get screwed every time.

Man...Ninja gaiden is impossible for me. It's just too damn hard at the latter stages.

Are you in a clan? Or do you just play public servers?

Final Fantasy XII... I'm afraid I won't be able to play it or probably any future installments since I've moved to PC gaming

Mine Sweeper - It's been a good 8 years(?) I've been playing at a decent 2 hours a day. I think this is one of the best games as I still haven't stopped. The only bad thing is it makes me feel like I have carpal tunnel...

Ninja Gaiden freakin rawks... I loved that game... I should go through it again. All I can say is upgrade the wooden sword! Damn I hated those stupid flying fish towards the end, they always messed me up.

btw - nabwong, I saw your request and added you to my friend list... sorry man I just hardly ever go online but I'll keep an eye out for you when I do
