What video game are you currently playing?

I've been on a Tiger Woods 04 kick since I got it for xmas. I'm not big into gaming but have been intriqued by that new manhunter game. Any of you playing that?

no halo for PC sux, all they did was add some extra levels and a few guns. but it is choppy and nothing like the smoothness of the Xbox, and no it is not my PC that makes it choppy. Halo is the best game on XBOX...

just that video card minus the PC to go with it costs more than an XBOX. Although it is a baddazz card

I used to hate my XBOX with a passion until I ordered a new lazer for the dvd drive, now it works better than the day I bought it. I am also getting ready to upgrate the HD and add a mod chip that allows me to play the games directly from the HD. Check out www.xbox-scene.com

im not hating on xbox by any means.

im simply saying that HALO PC is better than HALO XBOX.

maybe not single player... but multiplayer.


plus FPS's are allllllways better on PC... the controls cant be duplicated by consoles

Halo on Xbox, gets choppy when there's lots of action - smooth for the most part but not infallible..... if its choppy on your PC, then you just need to upgrade your PC.

, I agree. Soul Calibur 2 is great eye-candy, but that's about it. For best results run it through HD adapter on Xbox on a HD set....

Oh yeah if I had an Xbox I'd be playing Topspin a lot. My friend has one and whenever he brings it over we are immersed in 4p, its great, I never thought Virtua Tennis could be topped, but Topspin does it...

my friend has this modchip, along with a 120gb HD. It's an amazing setup - he doesn't bring any games over, and we never have to open the CD tray. Hell we never even have to leave the couch - can reset the Xbox from the controller. And he has 30-40 games just sitting on there ready to play. Plus MAME and other PC emulators, you can play Super Street Fighter SNES version on the Xbox, in all its old skool glory - along with the 300-odd other ROM's he has on it....... its a pretty damn sweet setup I gotta admit...... and definitely an edge the Xbox has on the competition......

So what will be the next big thing??

In Summer 2004 (hopefully): GT4.......

Back to the same old thing about sony having more games. For just about every good PS2 game, there is a good xbox game....and there are a ton of crap games on both systems.

Prince of Persia is awesome guys. It's kinda long but worth it. Someone mentioned Max Payne, that's awesome too. Simpsons hit and run is awesome I've heard as well. I've been playing prince of persia recently.

ya the graphics are definately not the best.

as for the controls... im a big PC for FPS fan...

but i will say that SOCOM II has the best control setup of any console FPS.


socom is all about the gameplay and the community.

NFS underground ownz... for PC of course. supposed to have better motion blur FX on the consoles, but yeah I prefer PC for driving games. GT4 will have to be on PS2, though...
