Re: Games

Well, bot or not, at least you're bringing some discussion topics to liven this dead place up a bit, anyway! ;-)

It's a tough call, but I'd probably put "Portal" and "Portal 2" as my all time favorite games...  They're just some of the most fun and funniest times I've ever had playing a game...

Prior to them coming along, I probably would've said "Doom" and "Doom 2", being the perfect epitome of single-player FPS games...  (Or, the "Quake" games for perfect multi-player FPS...  But, I'm much too old and lame to handle multi-player against other actual humans with any skill anymore...)

And, I always like to give special mention to "Mindrover", which was a brilliant game that I thoroughly enjoyed...  But, then it's basically a game about programming, so how could I not enjoy it?!  You build and program automated robotic vehicles to compete against other such vehicles in various races, fights, and other contests...  Great stuff...  I was always sad the company apparently went out of business, so there will never be a sequel...

Re: Games

I have to agree, Portal is bloody amazing. I haven't played Portal 2 yet.
I pretty much stopped playing games years ago when I started focusing
on Linux and programming. Now I only play once a couple years when a
friend wants me to try out a new game. I used to play too much CS. Going
further back, Monkey Island 1 and 2 are definitely on my list of favourite
games too.

I wish I discovered Mindrover, but I've never heard of it. :-/
