    I'm not currently playing any games. I haven't had much time lately to play much of anything :p
    I'm into simulation games like Flight Simulator, Sim City and The Sims.

    I'm anxious for Sims 3 to come out in June or July. :cool:

    Oh, and I much prefer computer gaming as opposed to console gaming; not sure why, but that's just the way I am :)

    Depends on wither I'm in the mood to play a video game if I am I have the choice between a 3 inch DS screen or my 22 inch TV/computer screen.

    I can't wait for it to come out either.

    Is anyone playing or will be checking out the ONLIVE or ONLIFE I can't remember very well.

    I was looking for a domain for that and they are gone pretty much. It is being said it will take PS3 down.

    Sony just came out with PScloud though which will battle the ONLIVE thing.

    Check them out if you haven't

    It looks pretty cool! I saw the link the other day and checked them out. I don't know if it will take console gaming down though. You have to have a super fast connection and a lot of people still to this day still don't have one.

    I find myself usually playing Halo 3, Left 4 Dead and Halo Wars on Xbox Live.

    Can't wait for Left 4 Dead 2!

    Really not a fan of First Person Shooters. Usually don't spend money on them. The only one that I could really stand to play for any length of time was Command & Conquer: Renegade and that was more out of loyalty to the Westwood's RTS games. Never finished it though. Even in MMO's I can't play in First Person mode. I always have to scroll out the camera and use third-person.

    I don't know. There still are a lot of people who actually like owning hard copies of games. There are still people with dial up. The PS3 won't be taken down by OnLive.

    Anyway, on topic. I play vidya gaems on my PS3. I usually play CoD 4 or 5, but I also really like Fallout 3, LittleBigPlanet, Killzone 2, inFamous, and others I don't feel like listing.

    The only thing I've been playing is Rock Band. My surround sound tuner fried and it's a PITA to direct hook up my PS3. So I've been playing on my son's Wii and Rock Band is about all I'm digging right now.

    I used to be big into Xbox 360. Now I don't play much anymore, only when a specific title comes out that I have always loved (Forza 3 soon). I stopped playing because I got into World of Warcraft last August and that consumed all of my time. Now I don't really play that either - I'd rather do forum stuff.

    I never really got into console games. As far as computer games I used to play NittoLegends. It's a free online drag race game. I still get on every once in awhile to chat. If you're into drag racing/street racing and cars you would like this game.

    I also used to play Command and Conquer... but it's been a few years since I have.

    The same company who develops NittoLegends just released RobitsWorld. It's a MMO or Massive Multiplayer Online Game and it's browser based so there's no download or installation needed. It's in BETA still so not a lot of people know about it. I've attached some screen shots of it.

    My brother plays NittoLegends, he's addicted to it. Other than that, I prefer console gaming all the way.

    All I play is Call of Duty 4.
    I recently rented Godfather 2 and it's pretty good.
    I'm mainly a PS3 gamer because I own a Mac laptop and don't game on that (excluding The Sims 3).
