Any Computer Gamers?

What games do you play?

Right now I have been playing Dungeon Siege by Microsoft. Really cool adventure game if you like swordplay, archery and controlling multiple characters. Awesome graphics and a huge world to explore.

Current fav at our house is C&C Generals multiplay (mainly the teen boys) although I prefer flight sims. GT3 or NfS Underground on PS2 (badly need a good wheel!).

I have recently put the "original" Colossal Cave Adventure on my laptop, for those who may remember it from the 70's (a true classic).

Nobody else Grand Prix Legends? That is like one of the most realistic and hard to play racing games. And it is some years old. There is nothing better than racing f1 cars from 1967.

Counterstrike 1.6, modded GTA VC (got 100% ), NFS Porsche & Hot Pursuit II (got underground, but haven't played it yet, waiting for my steeringwheel) , Simpsons Hit & Run. That are the games I'm currently playing.

I'm waiting for my steeringwheel, ordered it 1.5 month ago and it's still not here

And I'm looking for 355 & 360 challenge, anyone knows a place where to download?

It's an instant classic. It's an iron fist in a velvet glove. It's a Ferrari.

I've got NFS Porsche Unleased and it is a real good driving game. You are going to love it with a steering wheel and pedals!

No time to play anymore... ...When free, I'm working on my sites.
But I usualy play C&C Generals, Need For Speed HP2, Carmageddon TDR, one of the old 8-bit Nintendo games I got (on a emilator).

oh yes, I also have a flying game, it's specialy made to imrove Radio Controlled flying skills (I do not seem to have them!).

Marcos,
My buddy Rick has some RC aircraft and he also has that RC Flight simulator you are talking about. Uses the same RC controller as the genuine aircraft. I tried it. I can take off and fly around but my landings are a bit "rough".

I've done RC cars and boats but have never flown an actual RC airplane. I would like to give it a try sometime. I've got a scratchbuilt WW2-era FW-190 fighter that I would like to get running someday. The thing has got like a 1.5 meter wingspan and I guess with the right engine and prop will do over 100 mph. Rick says I need to practice with a cheap trainer aircraft before I attempt to fly the FW-190. I'll try and post a pic of it.

Yes, Porsche Unleased is very cool with a steering wheel. I played the game once at a friend's house with a steeringwheel+pedals, a beamer and 5.1 dolby that was so cool. So I've ordered the steering wheel and the dolby surround system , but the beamer is way to expensive for me (and don't have the space for it) , but I do got a new 17" flatscreen :green: . So when everything is in place I'm gonna have a pretty cool racing system :P


Wow that's one big airplane ! My brother had a RC airplane about a year ago, not such a big one, but he had one; the second day he had it he went flying with it, after about 20 min he got back home: the plane was gone. He wasn;t looking where he was flying and the plane went out of sight behind some trees, he steered up, but didn't see the plane, it was gone. We went searching for the plane, we searched the whole parc, but never found it back. :-?

It's an instant classic. It's an iron fist in a velvet glove. It's a Ferrari.

Never flown a actual plane to, I started with the program (also with controller) because I didn't want an expensive crash. I hope to go and buy my first plane within the next year or two (very expensive ). But I have to decide to buy a plane or a chopper. I like both.

Still do RC-cars, I drive 2,5cc 4wd 360 scale 1:10. It was tuned up untill about 120 km/h (that's what the salesman promised me), but after a bad crash last summer I reduced the speed until aprox. 80 km/h. I also use a 1:10 scale electro Benz for stuntdriving and friends.

And then there are my boats, I sold most of them a few years ago ( :-? ), but I currently have 3 new under construction.

And I love to see a pic of that FW-190 :wink:

The Choppers are cool but they are very expensive and I have heard that when you crash one there is not much left. Truly a choice for the more experienced RC enthusiast.

I would reccomend using the flight sim until you can consistenly fly for @ 20 mins in 1 flight without losing control or crashing and then land safely. this about 1 1/2 times that a tank of fuel should last (I go for 10 mins. then land, this gives me a 5 min safety margin). Be sure to and wind to the flight after you feel confident, Do not try very many stunts at first, those will come in time. Point in case I spent 3 months building a plane. took it to a friends house to fly, he tried to make me let him take it off but i said no, after taking off, he was very suprised I was doing so well, (flight sim!).
after 3 or 4 flights I got cocky and started doing stunts against my friends stern advice. I attempted a low pass ( @5 feet off the ground) pulled straight upwith full right aileronup to 100 feet, pulled straight back into a loop, at the bottom of the loopdid a barrel rool (@ 20 high) all at full speed, a gust of wind hit the plane and drove it straight into the ground, after my friend has able to compose himself we searched for the engine, I buired 4 inches into the ground. that was my first day of flying.

Also, planes are easier to learn to fly the choppers and for less money.

I set my brother up for this and after a couple of months he solo'd on a plane he built.
