I bought the Jaguar for the AvP game. I liked it, but mainly because my pride wouldn't allow for anything else. That system cost a ton.

AvP was great, but I don't get why AvP 2 gets such a bad rap. It was equally as fun, and even better multiplayer than the original. What gives? Anyone want to enlighten me? Both had surprisingly good atmosphere and were appropriate uses of the license...

Duke 3D on the Xbox Live Arcade is giving me an opportunity to play through the game again with a few friends who never got to experience it the first time around.

Making me miss 3DR all the more ;(

I saw the 40 Best Movie Moms link and immediately thought that the mom from a Christmas Story should be #1. Premiere did not disappoint!

Space,

Prey was originally designed and developed alongside Unreal as a competitor. I believe the primary programmer on the project had a brain aneurysm and died, so the project was shelved for a period. The prey today is a totally different product from what was presented long ago, with the only similarity being the Portal technology.

I didn't fact check, this is straight from memory, but I am pretty sure it's moderately accurate.

The Romero of current times? Looks like he's taking it further than public flame fests, though. 24 million isn't a small number.

I'm with you Prez, I absolutely loved Battlezone... I wish they'd develop a new game in the series.

This will have to do. I found my copy but the CD is cracked, so I am ordering a new one off ebay. Still have the original, too (which I always preferred)

Pangya looks like an MMO variant of the Super Swing Golf games on the Wii. Even has the paper bag character thingy, so must be related

What's funny is that Bethesda has ALWAYS released buggy games.

Daggerfall is one of my favorite games of all time, but it was so buggy at launch that you couldn't even beat it. Such a great game, anyway.

The Terminator games were also really good, but multiplayer on LAN was next to impossible to get working correctly, and when you DID get it working, games lasted 10 minutes at most before they bugged out.

Bethesda is a top tier developer in my eyes but the issues with bugs and technical problems is something that goes way back in their history.

That's a little too tinfoil hat-ish there, don't you think?

The idea that sims aren't being made because they teach people to fly is silly... they're not being made because it's not a profitable genre. The amount of people that can sit down and dedicate the time needed for a sim is a lot smaller than the play-for-10-minutes crowd that wants a quick fix.

Most Sims also require a decent amount of supporting hardware, which again limits the target market. There are those that will put $1,000 or more into a great flight setup or an achored driving wheel and seat. But those are rare, and the diversity of hardware to support and the low market penetration of those devices just means that there's a lot of overhead to support your target and provide a great experience.

For the amount that a sim costs to make (high, subject matter research is much higher for a sim than an arcade shooter), and the potential return, it doesn't make sense. Too risky for a publisher and developer to take on. Publishers always go for the low hanging fruit.

Blizzards never let me down in quality. New IP, same old IP, doesn't matter. Bring on the titles. Blizzard alone keeps me interested in computer gaming nowadays.

Shadow of the Beast had an epic soundtrack. Playing that game on the Amiga made me a believer in computers as a viable gaming platform

Tribes was great fun when I was on with my local friends commandeering a vehicle, but the game as a whole was lacking. The weapons felt so ... bad. The disc launcher frustrated the hell out of me, and the sniper rifle was an equally aborted attempt at deviating from the norm.

Props for the early innovation, but the game was not without its flaws.

I am glad Doom got a mention, but I think Quake should have been on there somewhere... the Q is iconic.
