I'm not a GTA fan. I fire those games up, drive around, crash into things, run people over, steal cars, kill people. At that point 10 minutes has gone by so I decide to play some missions, realize the missions suck and the game is boring, then give up. Popular series, just not for me.
I'd consider lifting my PC gaming ban if anyone wanted to get a WGB original UT clan going just for laughs. I destroy at CTF.
Crash-- thanks for the info on Fate. Never saw that. I'm a huge action/rpg fan. Did you ever play Darkstone
? I always felt that this is what Diablo II should have been. Really solid action RPG fully realized in 3D with a great camera.
ArkanGL-- Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy was excellent. Totally refreshing experience. Reminded me of the Shenmue series a lot in a good way.
