The G80 is going to make 2006 a momentous year for gamers. :headbang:

In spirit of MikeC's comment I would just like to propose that I firmly believe that November 2006 will be the best month in gaming we have ever had. I can make a list of the reason why reasons why I believe this:

1. The Nintendo Wii brings a whole new element and way to interact with games. I personally am very drawn to the controller due to the FPS functionality it will have. It seems that controlling games like this is a lot like having a mouse on a PC. IMO that is certainly a step in the right direction.

2. All of the Old School Downloads Via the Wii (Donkey Kong, Mario Bros., Contra, Gunsmoke, PaperBoy etc.--aka these are suppose to be better then any emulated crap.:p) and Xbox Live Arcade!!:D

3. Although I am not a Playstation fan, in support of Nvidia I hope the PS3 does very well.

4. LEGEND OF ZELDA TWILIGHT PRINCESS.:D

5. GEARS OF WAR! (Enough said there)

6. QUAD CORE

7. New PC GAMES: Dark Messiah, FEAR EXPANSION, SPLINTER CELL, Rainbow 6 Vegas, WOW EXPANSION, SAM & MAX!!!:D

CAN ANYONE SAY G80 LAUNCH ACCOMPANIED WITH NEW CHIPSET?!! (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=77908) :tiki:

And wouldn't you know it Crysis and UT2007 are just right around the corner.

PERHAPS I'M WRONG BUT NOVEMBER REALLY SHOULD BE ONE OF THE SWEETEST MONTHS FOR GAMERS THAT I CAN THINK OF. IF NOVEMBER 2006 ISN'T THE BEST MONTH FOR GAMERS EVER THAN WHEN WAS?

Is anyone elses wallet starting to hurt:

And my patience continues to pay off ......

I'm SO glad I decided to hold out right after the Conroe release. Initally it was just till a decent motherboard came along that supported SLI (still waiting) but then it hit me that I have NO games right now that my system cannot play. Yeah I only run FEAR at 1280x760, but its pretty and playable so what is the rush?

Now granted, when Crysis comes out ..... $$$$

Figure a Quad Core and MAYBE dual G80s ... perhaps only 1 if Crysis runs GREAT on it, but I want bells AND whistles this time damnit!!!

I'd also add Neverwinter Nights 2 into that list and maybe Gothic 3 if it's not an unplayable bug heap. :D

I've been playing Lineage 2 @ 1280x1024 6xAA abd 16x Aniso... really fun and looks really good:D

I'll have to wait for R600 specs to decide which GPU I am gonna lose sleep over:lol:

There really aren't any upcoming games that I am excited for yet. Maybe in the coming months.

Dont forget the new Sam & Max episode on November 1st! Most people have been waiting 13 years for this game. :D

I dont know if this is really the best month EVER though... at least for me. G80, Dark Messiah, Sam & Max and quadcore are really the only things that interest me. Wii looks interesting, but I doubt I'll be buying one.

If Quake Wars would have made it next month, yeah I would agree this is one of the best times to be a gamer.

This is very misleading. I voted based on the title of the thread, only to find out the poll is a different question than the thread. Sheesh...

I have been waiting for months for FSX and I couldn't wait until this coming tuesday -- (October 17th) when it was available. One, it's my birthday, and 2 it comes out on my birthday.

WELL, I am picking the game up tomorrow, 4 day's before the scheduled release...I know...not anything big, just 4 days but I am still excited. I will get a whole 4 days ahead of you guys, haha. I'll make a thread and post pics.

Nope, I've modded mine and import late releases. I've bought God of War, Kingdom Hearts 2 from ebgames and getting FFXII this way as well. Not much choice left for us really... :(

Heh, a thought that sprung to my mind was "But what about the ps3; it shouldn't be region locked for games, so maybe it'll play ps2 games as well!", then I remembered that we're not getting the ps3 until march. :rolleyes: But I
guess I'll have to wait, since I don't want to pay 20€ for a mod-chip that I'm only going to use once.

Back on topic: Yep November is going to be one hell of a month for gaming, in the US at least. Gears of war is looking mighty good and the g80 just droolworthy. ;)
