Wow I had no idea some of these games existed! :shock: Thanks for the list! I'll definitely try out Nexuiz since it looks like it features non-stop gameplay, something that I've been missing from the FPS genre for many years now.

Nexiuz is one of the best from this list. It's like UT and Quake had a love child. I have a lot of family members and close friends that love this game dearly. In the children center that I volunteer for many of the kids there have made maps for the game.

I play that game often. It's part of my top 3 - It's always in my rotation. :bouncy:

I have a lot more than whats on this list. I have 1 PC with almost 5 TBs of games on it alone. As time goes on I will post more. Who should I contact about making this a sticky thread?

Why, why are you so good to us Megazell? I hope this thing gets stickied quick.

Ever consider sharing your top 3 or 5 games?

On a serious level - I just don't believe people should have to pay the prices many have been paying for games for the last 5 years. Too many hands in the pot and the content is still the same (more or less). It's like people are paying more for less as each year goes by in the gaming sector. Plus, I love that look (or what I imagine to be the look from online viewers) on people's face when they see a high quality game and find out it's 100% free.

On the fun side - Fuck it! That's why! :lol:

1) Nexuiz

2) Rise and Fall: Civilizations At War

3) Dungeon and Dragons Online

When I am playing with my family/kids...

4) Frets On Fire

5) Street Fighter Online

I like the mini games (small games like Robocop 2D 2 and 3 and others like it) for when I have only 10 to 20 minutes to spare.

My gaming time is very structured (family, wives, outdoor hobbies...) so if anyone is interested in teaming up I am on Xfire every Wednesday and Sunday 10:30 PM EST to 12:30 AM EST as Megazell.

I'd be down for tons of these if I had the time. I used to play the hell out of Command and Conquer Red Alert when it first came out.

EDIT - HUUUUUGE WTF at "I want to be the guy". That shit was making me tense just watching the video.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Megazell's Top Pick
Wing Commander Saga
Megazell's Top Pick


Simulation/Space
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No


Theme: Science Fiction

In an interview with TCN News, Colonel Christopher "Maverick" Blair said, "I have never felt comfortable with people calling me 'The Savior of the Confederation.' Sure, I was the wing leader in the raid on Kilrah, and I was the one who dropped the Temblor bomb. But I don't want people to forget that I only got that far because of the sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of others."

This is their story.

The conflict between Earth and Kilrah is drawing to a close, and the Terran Confederation is not winning. Humanity's only hope lies in a desperate plan that will require even idealistic young fighter pilots to stretch themselves beyond all imagination. It's the end of the world, and you have a front row seat.

Raw emotion, realistic characters, a hard look at the devastation of war, and intense large-scale space combat action await you as you assume the role of 2nd Lt. David "Sandman" Markham. Twists of fate will throw you out of your dull backwater assignment and right into the hottest spots of the most devastating war in history.

Wing Commander is back. You know Blair's story, now experience the rest of the Saga.

8bit Killer

First Person Shooter
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No
Netbook Friendly


Theme: Science Fiction

What if Nintendo had made a first person shooter for the original NES?
8bit killer is a first person shooter styled to resemble an 8bit NES game in look and feel.
AD 2488. A long war has put human race on the edge of self-extinction. Four years ago, a space creature known as Master Brain arrived with the promise of a new dawn. Now, a huge army launched an attack to the few cities that are still on, following the plan of the creature. A small group of soldiers have formed an alliance to defend those cities and kill the master brain. This games tells the story of their final mission.
32x32 pixel textures, 64 color nes palette and 1bit sounds make this game look like an early 90s game. The soundtrack has been created by the genius RushJet1. The story, characters and scenes are inspired by films like Mad Max or 2013: Rescue in LA and by games like Contra, Megaman, Bionic Commando, Metroid, Catacomb 3D or the sequel Wolfenstein 3D, and many others...

Varia

Shooter/Vertical
Single Player - Yes
Multiplayer - No


Theme: Science Fiction

Varia is a game I made for the SHMUP-DEV Competition 2k7 Round 2, in which it came in first place. It is a vertical shooter like Kairuga, although this time not a computer remake, but a mix of several classic japanese shmups coupled with my own twists. The theme of the competition was "Options", basically the ghost ships in the Gradius series or any type of satellite.

The way the options work in Varia is similar to the way they worked in Gradius series - the options trail after you, and one of the abilities that you have in both games is the ability to freeze your options into their relative positions. Gradius V has a lot more ways to use your options, but I felt the freeze method worked very well. I came upon the idea of letting the player to be able to absorb an enemy weapon with the options that you can get from power-ups. You have to freeze the options in place and "catch" an enemy shot, which you'll be able to use to destroy the enemies in return. There are 10 different types of shots you can absorb.

So I tried Dwarf Fortress (rather I gave it to the kids at the center after school)...It's not my cup of tea...but thanks for the recommendation. I use to play games like it when I was much younger.

Edit - 11/2011 - THAT GAME IS GOLD!
