MOH - The multi on MOH is rather lame. The SP is the best I have played in a long time.

RTCW - the opposite. The multi is Fan-fucking-tastic. Imagine TFC set in ww2. With this x-pack coming out they basically included the spy class i'm a serial-killer :)

AOM - already great fun in the alpha and with the balance changes and polished look of the gold version it will easily replace AOC as my RTS of choice.

GTA3 - I am going to take a ton of shit for this but.... I had more fun with the second one. I mean nothing will ever beat running over a line of wanna-be Elvis dudes. "ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!" But GTA3 is a great game still. Plus you can beat up old people with baseball bats.

Warcraft 3 - it's fun but the balance is just pathetic. Orcs way too strong!!!!.

The X-packs for both Wolfie and MOH are coming out I am picking up the both of them. MOH has the Soviets and Wolfie has new classes, guns, and techs.

MOH because it is ridiculously good. Age of Mythology because I am a loyal follower of the Ages series. Warcraft 3 because it is awesome.

are you confused yet?

I just bought Soldier Of Fortune II. You should get it as well. Not only has it got lots of guns, but you can shoot people's arms off and stuff.

Oh, and Dungeon Seige is well worth it as well.

Age of Mythology for obvious reasons. Ensemble hasn't released anything less than excellent games so far.

RTCW is a good game. The single player is excellent, although a little short. I'm not fond of the multiplayer game, but that's just my taste.

GTA3 just plain kicks ass. I've got it for PS2 rather than PC, but there's not much of a difference between the two. Definitely the best game in the series by far.

Warcraft 3 I haven't played, but then again I haven't heard anything bad about it. I'm not in a hurry to get it, but I probably will eventually.

What's wrong with Morrowind? I've read the reviews and it looks to be the shit.

morrowind is probably the best looking game ever. I spent 15 real minutes looking at the sunset, fucking amazing. and it's HUGE playing it takes a lot of time, walking from one end of the world to an other takes about ten hours

it's good stuff, if you can muster quite a bit of time

GTA 3 = Who doesn't love beating prostitues with baseball bats to get their night's earnings?

Neverwinter Nights = A rediculous amount of options. Many hours of fun to be had. Suddenly you become a lot more tired i'm a serial-killer :)

Unreal Tournament 2003 = My vote went to this. I've played the demo and it is amazing. If you don't like FPS's in the first place, this probably won't change your mind.

GTA3 is a fucking bitch to get running correctly, R* fucked up badly with the PC port of the game. Once you get it running half-decent, however, it's pretty good.

AoM and GTA 3, the reasons have already been given.

Dude, you think MOHAA SP sucks? Is there some big suck disease where you and GlobeThrasher live? You probably just suck so much you can't handle anything besides 'OMFG RUN RUN RUN SHOOT SHOOT SHOOT WIN WIN WIN.' MOHAA SP fucking rocked. And with the X-pack, both SP and MP will be getting a boost. The worst thing about MP is the lack of CTF or anything like that, but the objective based maps kind of fix that.

as an FPS junkie, my votes went to Medal of Honor, UT2k3, and GTA III. But GTA III isn't a first person shooter, you might say! this is correct! but you have the option of playing it like one, if you so choose.

if you are going for the best price point, i believe these three games will offer you plenty of carnage and beautiful gameplay.

MOHAA is pretty fucking dank, if i do say so myself.

UT2003 is a very short game. Took me 3 days to finish. *cries* And too damn easy. Xan Kriegor was 1000000x harder than the last boss on UT2003, and [UT = Difc. easiest] [UT2003 = Difc. 2nd easiest]

where did you hear this? nothing on ES' site, nothing on gonegold.com, only that little blurb from theta on the AOMH main page, which only says "on the day that AOM goes gold." he doesn't mention a date...i'm wondering if this is widespread speculation, or if one of the VIP's leaked info about his plane ticket.

*edit* ah. i see the date on the VIP invitation now. how exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*prints out his own VIP invite from the one theta scanned*
