Re: Favorite video game?

I liked the original Sims. Too bad they were kinda retarded when it came to the bed; even if I had two single beds next to eachother, if one was sleeping in one, the other would not use the other bed. They wouldn't even share the bed made SPECIFICALLY for two Sims to use at once. Nor could I get them to sleep in single beds even if they were spaced apart. In the end I fingured out a way around that and bought a ton of sofas. Now one gets a bed and the others sleep on sofas.

They were also extremely retarded about stoves and would not Stop. Burning. Down. The house! They'd burn it down on the first day and kill one or more of themselves even! More annoying was the fact that the pizza delivery guy would get there in, like, 5 game minutes, but the fire department took a game hour! What the hell?! >_<

lmao. I never played Sims 1, but some of the retarded stuff continued in Sims 2, they still burn down the house just from cooking their stuff, and have the moth syndrome. Instead of running away they run at the fire and stand there, with the windmill arms, panicking like idiots.

Today in my Sims 2 game, one of my Sims (a sim of Doc Emmett Brown, in fact!) wanted to see a ghost, well he saw the ghost so many times, repeatedly, that he ended up dying from it. Dying from fear! Literally! Another one had to call him back from the tomb using some item.



Glad to hear you tried and liked Sims 3, Miba. I don't know if I'll play it much, myself, besides just to know it enough to be able to create custom content for it. It's so huge a machine to run, and I'm not sure I like it.

Re: Favorite video game?

One thing I never liked about Sims 1 and 2 was that it took an hour to go to the bathroom and you had to go so many times a day. In Sims 3 you go once a day or so and it takes five minutes. And there's an unlockable option that allows you to go even less! It's wonderful.

It does take some getting used to. Especially the fact that you can't create your own town and have to play in the ones they give you. I hope they release an expansion at some point that allows you to create your own town. But I don't think I'll be going back to Sims 2 very often.

Thats what mine do! Which doesn't help when it just delays them calling the fire department even more. Or when they die from their stupidity because they won't leave the house!

Oooh you got a Doc Brown Sim? That is SO COOL. Like Star Wars, Back to the Future is easily one of my favorite sets of movies! I hope he has a Marty to go along with him. =3

So it's true. I thought it was just me being a n00b, and that there was some option I couldn't find that allowed you to make your own custom town from scratch. I hate playing with their pre-made stuff. I always removed all Maxis-made towns and characters and made my own worlds in my Sims 2 games.

Re: Favorite video game?

I think the video games I've most enjoyed playing were Final Fantasy 2 (FF4, in Japan), Final Fantasy 7, Crimson Skies, Knights of the Old Republic, Assassins Creed, Brothers in Arms, the Call of Duty series, and the old Wing Commander games.

Oh yeah, and I really got addicted to playing Sid Meier's Pirates several months back.  That was just plain fun.

Re: Favorite video game?

Ooh FFIV! I LOVE IV. Most underrated Final Fantasy IMO. Have you played a patched version of the original version? How about the new DS version? Also, the sequel.

And, as cool as that Doc is, I only have the first Sims game, so no, I can't have Doc too, unfortunitly. Talking about this though makes me think back one of the first computer games I ever played, the original SimCity. And later along the lines, SimAnt, SimTown, SimTower, and SimFarm (yes, farm XD). I always feel so...evil playing SimCity/3000. I'll build the city up to a point and get bored building stuff for a while so I save and completely annihilate the city using a veriety of disasters.

Re: Favorite video game?

Haven't played the DS version, but I did pick up a used copy of Final Fantasy Chronicles for the PS1 at Gamestop the other day.  Is that the version you're talking about?  I was picking up the new Ghostbusters game, which is fun as heck to play if you get the chance.  Anyway, it's got FF2 and Chronotrigger on it.  I have no idea what Chronotrigger has to do with the FF series, other than it's the same game maker, but I've been wanting to play it for a while now.  Just can't find a good copy for the SNES with instructions anymore.  It's usually too expensive for my tastes on eBay.  The FF2 game on there, though, supposed to have updated cut scenes that they didn't have the tech to do on the old SNES, back in the day.

Re: Favorite video game?

Well, I can describe the DS version as the defenitive version of IV. It includes even more updated cut scenes, and even some brand new flashbacks to help flesh out the story even more. I wouldn't recommend that version of Chrono Trigger though...its not very good. The game lags, and the music is terrible; not even anime cutscenes can save it. I, well, like the DS version more, since it has a new, accurate translation now instead of being a simple port. And time and care was put into it to make sure it wouldn't lag and that the music was clear and perfect.

Re: Favorite video game?

Too bad you don't have Sims 2, Cecilia. If you ever do, tell me and I'll share my stuff with you if you want. Sounds fun what you did with SimCity 3000, annihilating cities when you're fed up with them. You should have made little movies of that. I tried Sim City 4 but I am too dumb to understand anything.

I loved FFVI, myself. more than IV, and more then the sequels. Also loved Chrono Trigger. Only played the SNES version on my PC as a rom and it's great, and the music was great too, but I have to say it was on my PC not on a SNES. I have the DS version too and I still have to try it. Loved the stone age girl. Put the berserker thing on her head and she becomes a killing machine.

Sadriel did you look it up as rom?

Re: Favorite video game?

I have SimCity for the SNES, and for the PC, but I've never played my PC version. I liked SimSafari too, that was fun. I've also played SimCity 2000 for the PS1 and PC, it's alright. I have 4, but haven't played it. I think I played SimCity 3000 but I'm not sure, I think I just watched someone else play it. SimTower was fun. Pretty much the only Sim game I don't like is Urbz. The music makes my head hurt.

I've never played any of the Final Fantasy games, though my brother is addicted to an MMO (11? 12? Something like that, I think it's 11). I liked the movie, Advent Children I think it was called, but I guess there was a lot in it I didn't really get cause I never played the game. I pretty much had to have my brother explain a lot of it to me.

Re: Favorite video game?

Wow, you girls played all the "Sim" games. I only played Sims 2 (both on GameCube and PC) and a little of Sims 3. I wanted to build my area of city in SimCity4 to use it as a neighborhood in Sims 2 but when I installed SimCity4 I felt overwhelmed by all the functions I couldn't understand. And the part of city I wanted to map was wayyy too big anyway. It would have taken too much time to map all that and Sims 2 isn't hip enough anymore to invest so much effort on a single neighborhood map.

I only played the Final Fantasy games I to VI, including the japanese ones released on the NES. But that's it. Someone has shown me some of the 3D sequels (VII, and another) but I can't say I really felt appealed. I haven't seen the movie you're mentioning. When was it released?

And just a question like that. What do you think is better? Movies based on videogames, or videogames based on movies?

Re: Favorite video game?

Theres only one Final Fantasy MMORPG...at the moment, and thats 11. I don't really think they should do that with the main series personally. Make an MMORPG and call it Final Fantasy Online, don't waste numbers within the main series for it. Sometimes I feel like Square is getting lazy.

Re: Favorite video game?

Yes, many companies seem to think it's the new way of making money with gamers. There's MMORPGs popping everywhere now.

Hey, sorry it took so long but I forgot that I was going to answer this and never did, lol. But here's the movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0385700/

Thanks for the link.
I checked out a preview on YouTube, it seems pretty awesome for an animated movie. Hadn't seen that. I wonder if it's easy to find as DVD rental.

I'm not sure, I know my brother bought it OL. I don't think I've really seen it for sale in stores, or in rental places, but then I haven't been looking for it either. Netflix might have it, if nothing else, but I dunno, I haven't looked.

Depends on the movie. If we're talking about Ghost Busters then games based on movies.

Re: Favorite video game?

one of the most unique FPSers I've ever played. They play on the nostalgia so well while also bringing you into a new storyline. The jokes are funny, the action is intense, the ghosts are impressive. Everything in the game from pack/wand upgrades to getting to wander around the fire house in between missions is great. My only gripe is not getting to drive Ecto1 tongue
