But the most involving console game I ever played was the original Shadowrun for the Super Nintendo
God that game was so awesome. Even though it was linear as hell, it was just so much FUN to play. Great combat, fit the Shadowrun universe well, lots of humor (heh, like using the strobe light to send the Vampires into seizures
), absolutely fantastic office building levels (with glass that shattered when you fired through it!!!), it was just amazing. I replayed it a few years ago, just before I finally said goodbye to my Super Nintendo, and it was just as awesome then as it was the first time I played it.
If there would be one game that I would like to see come out on the PC, it would be a Shadowrun RPG.
Edit : Park that same dumbass in front of any gaming rig (pc), and tell them to configure sound, video, controls, etc. for a game like Far Cry. You will hear a grinding sound; you will see steam emit from their ears.
Stop generalizing Moog. I have four MCPs, have been in IT for over ten years, I can probably build a PC blindfolded by now, and yet I happened to like the Sims. Quite a bit even. Just because YOU don't like a game doesn't mean that that's the opinion of the average PC Gamer.
For that matter, the Sims was actually a fucking beast to get to operate well, since it was published by EA. It took me quite awhile to finally figure out what was causing the game to crash so often.
I'll agree on the Deer Hunter analogy though. I think that doesn't even install, it just runs off the CD.This comment was edited on Feb 6, 14:00.
