Default So what new games do you all currently have?

I have quite a few

age of mythology - wow. aoe with 3d graphics and mythical creatures and gods. just amazing.

gta III - old but still gangsta.

madden 2003 - best game of the series..realistic graphics, and a very good franchise mode.

mohaa - old but one of best sp fps games out there.

need for speed hp 2 - awesome racing game. fun racing and obtaining money to get exotic cars. too bad there isn't an autobahn track.

nhl 2003 - same as nhl 2002 pretty much just updated. still looks good and good fun.

ut2k3 - my current favorite, good frag whenever i'm bored.

sure, this is just a campaign ss. doesn't do the game justice. the buildings are extremly detailed, and once you create your citadel surrounded by walls, and for examble have anubis looking creatures as your army its a sight to behold, and the god's power are amazing. the special effects are very cool. i run at 1280x1024 with quincunx, 2xaf, and ts. this game could probably run at 1600x1200 with 4xaa and 8xaf perfectly smooth.

Have, or are playing?

Medieval: Total War - Digital crack (for me, at least). My Byzantine empire is rocking the eastern world. No more Turks, no more Golden Horde (Mongols), and the Hungarians are about to fall before my might. Look on my works, ye mighty, and tremble!

Freedom Force - Just finished up another campiagn. Fun stuff, good story. And I brought Batman along for the ride. Groovy.

Jedi Knight II - Lightsabers. Need I say more?

Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force - Hey, it was $10. It was worth $10!

Throne of Darkness - An even cheaper $8!

And then there's Shogun: Total War, Heavy Gear II, Undying, Serious Sam I & II, Rogue Spear/Urban Ops, X-Wing Alliance, Homeworld/Cataclysm, Ground Control, Half-Life, Unreal, etc., etc.

Then there's the demos (most of which I haven't had time to play -- see Medieval: Total War): Hegemonia, UT2003 (too slow for me to go buy it), etc.

Eagerly awaing: O.R.B., Splinter Cell, Raven Shield, Doom III (the real deal).

Cheers,
JND

Well, since my rig is extremely old, all I've been really playing is Natural Selection lately. Great mod, if you're even remotely interested in MP gaming then you should really check this one out.

Age of Mythology is fantastic--just got it.

NFS: HP2 was a huge letdown.

UT2003 became boring very, very fast

Hitman 2 just didn't hold my interest... played too much like a console game I guess. I got sick of playing levels in the snow too.

NOLF 2 was pretty good.

I've been spending what little free time I have playing the Asheron's Call II beta.

The graphics are spectacular, but the combat is a bit to simplistic for a 2nd generation MMORPG.

Here's a link to a few screenshots taken during the last half-hour of beta. Most of them are in 1600x1200 resolution, but I took a couple at 2048x1536 just to show off the eye candy
