Too many platforms to choose from but only one genre - FPS

I'm that guy that shoots you in the head

The one and only game of all time for me is Americas Army - That game is the reason I made my first PC upgrade (and many subsequent others thereafter)

But then modern warfare happened and I migrated, I still play AA now and then but not as religiously as I used too.

Speaking of Modern Warfare 2, is anyone on BmR picking it up after the dedicated server incident? I ended up getting it today, but it took a lot of effort to do it. I'm hoping it was worth it.

My favourite game is, by far, Earthbound, for the Super NES. I've spent far too much time on that game.

The game that really got me into computers was Warcraft 2. That was tops for me until Age of Empires. I've played hundreds of titles after those, but I still think of those the most fondly.

Talking about Star Craft II, have a look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmYhX...layer_embedded
I don't know if they're enjoying the game or just playing like machines to win. If I don't enjoy games, I simply can't play them. I can get very good at FPS or similar games, but this is the reason I left RTS long time ago. I just couldn't keep up with any of the hardcore players.

Edit: Who knows where would I be if I lived in Korea instead of México.

I saw that video a few weeks ago and just kind of stared at the monitor for a second in amazement. And to think, when I play C&C, I play with just the mouse, somehow...

On another note, though, I think Metal Gear Solid 4 may have overtook every other game on my favorites list as the best game I've ever played. Makes getting a PS3 completely worth it.

Talking about SC2... The one review I've read mention the gameplay differences compared to the old SC, and it seems like SC2 put more emphasis on the parts of RTS gaming I dislike.
I won't buy it!

Cheers

Do you have a link to that review? I (and I'll probably get laughed at) never played the original Starcraft, but still picked up SC2 yesterday. Seems like it's getting near-perfect reviews from reviewers, but getting crap from long-time hardcore fans of the series about changing too much (and lack of LAN play)
