Weekend Open Forum: What are you playing right now?

By on April 12, 2010, 12:45 AM
PC enthusiasts are no strangers to long gaming sessions, and those who have recently upgraded to one of the latest and greatest graphics cards offered by ATI or Nvidia will surely be looking for something to throw at it. With the number of titles getting released quarter after quarter, coupled with some hard to pass discounts from Steam and other digital distribution mediums, it's easy to wind up with a large backlog of games and little time to get to them all.

Over the latter part of 2009 and first months of 2010 we have covered some of the PC games we're most excited about. Whether you've been keeping up with the hottest releases or still have your hands full with some past purchases, we want you to share what game -- or games -- you are playing right now.

Feel free to share your general opinions on the titles you've enjoyed the most as of late, and what other titles you have set your sights on. Discuss.

Battlefield Bad Company 2, just got my copy in today.

Clrabbit said:

It's actually rather funny, I never played FFXII when it was new, even though I picked up a copy. So it's been sitting around gathering dust for a long while. The other night I decided Why not, and well here I am.

+1 for Battlefield Bad Co.2.

I didn't like it at first, because it is quite different from Battlefield 2. But it is the most complete, tight FPS on the market. I am not only amazed with its graphics, but it is actually a blast to play (e.g., in contrast with Crysis).

MW2, because steam is offering a whole weekend of multiplayer for free! :D

Normally I'd be playing Napoleon Total War - that game is the shiz.

I reinstalled Divine Divinity (from 2002) and just finished it. Yeah, its an old game with 2D isometric graphics but the sheer creativity, interesting (and meaningful) side quests, an amazing 480 skill set combinations, custom character creation, a huge non-linear world with layers upon layers of story plot -- well what's hard not to like.

The only drawback is the first dungeon. Get past that and you're good to go.

Guest said:

still playing quake live here.

i mean ya, the graphics are a bit outdated (not like i care) and the tiering system is fatally broken, its still better than most of the crap that is released nowadays.

I don't do online games, and with two toddlers in the house I usually don't have time to play for hours at a time. So I usually turn my short attention span to Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath skirmishes, or a session of Wheelman. If I know I am going to have a few hours where i won't be interrupted or fall asleep, i might fire up Mass Effect or Fallout 3.

I recently played Crimson Skies all the way through, after finding a patch some guy made that fixed some graphics issues and made the game playable on modern hardware.

KidChaos said:

Torchlight lately.. TF2 and Left4dead2 for FPS

Guest said:

World of Warcraft.

Cueto_99 said:

Dawn of war 2: Chaos Rising, great visuals, cool game

BlindObject said:

Most I've been playing is Bad Company 2, Metro 2033 and Chronicles of Riddick. But from time to time I do some l4d2 and Mw2 on Xbox.

+1 Dragon Age

+1 Left 4 Dead 2

+1 Team Fortress 2

+1 Mass Effect

+1 Mass Effect 2

+1 Fallout 3

+1 Modern Warfare 1

But the two that have captured my attention right now are Bioshock 2 and Mercenaries 2. Bioshock 2 is almost a must for anyone that liked Bioshock 1. As for Mercs 2? I saw a play-through on a forum I frequent and it looked like hilarious fun. And by God it is.

I haven't had the pleasure of Bad Company 1 or 2...but they look like they could be huge fun as well.

RPG: Working on ME 1 & 2 just can't seem to finish =/ .

RTS: Mods for C&C3, Sins of a Solar Empire Entrenchment and bit of the RUSE Beta from Steam.

FPS: TF2 for my online needs and re-playing some old corridor shooters because they are awesome =D (HL2, Doom, Quake).

Games I really need to get around to DAO, BFBC2 and Metro 2033.

+1 Battlefield Bad Company 2 Online

+1 Metro 2033

+1 Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Online

My Q6600 and 8800 GT are still doing.... reasonable with them on a 1680x1050 screen.

Any donations for me to get a 5850? :X

Guest said:

I am playing Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, the original back from 2001, still the finest Ghost Recon game ever made. That and TF2 :)

tragicallyhip said:

Battlefield 2 is still my game of choice until BF3 arrives

cyrusjumpjet cyrusjumpjet said:

Left 4 Dead 2

Counter-Strike Source (CS just refuses to die!)

Team Fortress 2

After finishing Fallout 3, I've failed to find a game that really grabs me like I did.

I'm also trying to start DragonAge Origins but I'm not really hooked yet.

flukeh said:

Bad Company 2 for me, i've steered clear of the CoD franchise happily, went straight from 1.6 to BC2 and it's been good so far.

Finished Batman Arkham Asylum with all the achievements so I think it's time I finish some of my older games. BioShock & Oblivion come to mind. I also have GTAIV but I'll need a full system upgrade before it can run properly.

My video card is keeping me down, I am playing Left 4 Dead 2 at close to Low settings, ya'll don't wanna know what card I'm using. I can't wait to get my hands on a decent 4XXX card.

Guest said:

Dragon Age.

53 hours and counting

Classic Rock said:

Lol, that's the same setup I have.

For the article, I am playing Left 4 Dead, Call of Duty 4 and finally, at long sweet last... Oblivion with FCOM installed. God, installing FCOM nearly drove me insane. I had to reformat my computer 4 times in three days because when I would screw it up, Oblivion wouldn't run at all. Even uninstalling and reinstalling it and defragging didn't help.
