With the Steam beta starting in a few days, I was wondering what other people have thought of this so far and if anyone would be interested in a Roosterteeth clan (or whatever they're calling the team system now).
I really like the insane custom games like speed halo and some of the weirder infection variants, but I can never find a large group, or often any group, to play with on a regular basis. Is there an RT group like that, and if not, anyone interested in starting one?
I, personally, love this game more then any other. I thought it had a great plot, a realistic world, and very few restrictions. It was so realistic that you could actually screw yourself over if you didn't think everything you did through. I know this personally because on my best character I sold the bottle of vintage brandy that you needed to give to the thieves guild and i couldn't remember where i had sold it. I spent $400 and three hours traveling around trying to find the damn bottle. And when i finally did get there i didn't have the money to buy it back so i had to steal it again.
Anyways, it's things like that that made me love the game so much that i will never sell my xbox. It will be the last game that i ever give up and it was the first i had ever played.
What were the reasons that other people loved it.

About two weeks ago I was at a garage sale looking through ancient PC games when one caught my eye. It was called Myst. It only cost $.50 so I didn't think it would be much of a loss if it sucked.
I loaded it onto my computer with some remorse when I notice it came out only two years after I was born. However when I started playing it was intoxicating. It isn't really like any game I've played or even heard of before. It has nothing to do with fighting and I'm not even sure if you can die in it. Still somehow it draws you in and you'll find yourself puzzling over what to try next on the island.
Well about two weeks after I noticed my addiction becoming less and less I decided to look it up on Google and I've found that Myst is only the first in a series. If no one else is planning on making an more games like these then I guess I'll have to start collecting the rest of the Myst series.
Anyways, it is an oddly great game and if you haven't tried it yet you should.

So, I got up today with an urge to play Morrowind. Not Oblivion but the actual Morrowind that was made on the original Xbox. After I hooked up the old Xbox and started a new game I realized how awesome the old Morrowind actually was. I don't know about the rest of you but it was the first RPG I ever played. Actually besides the original Thief and a few Gameboy Color games it's the first video game that I actually played.
I guess I still like it because no other game, not even Oblivion, has captured what was in the original Morrowind. In most games, even RPG's, there is always a set story line that is insanely hard to escape and people are always reminding you about it. In Morrowind you really have to search for a story line that I still haven't really been able to find. The game is like life. You don't start out a hero and you don't have to end up one. In Oblivion and Fable and any other RPG I can think of no matter what path you take you become famous and powerful. In Morrowind you can got through the whole game being a poor, underhanded henchman for any of the countless guilds, factions, and houses that have been put into the game. Still better then all that is how interwoven the whole game is. You can't just kill a random shop keeper because they might play an important part in a much bigger part of the game and the game will actually let you do that. The game will actually let you fuck up the world around. Now how many games do you know of where the game will actually let you kill a major character and keep playing. It's not just the killing either. Anything you sell, eat, or steal can come back and bite you in the ass. This game is actually how I developed morals since I started playing it so young.
One of the other thing IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve noticed is how bleak the game is. Not depressingly bleak like Gears of War or anything. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just not cheery. Most games add tons of unnecessary bright colors and bright lights and just anything to make their world, even in combat, a more happy world then the one that we actually live in. Even the weather on most games is nice. You have very sunny days with the exception of a slight drizzle that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even darken the sky, or you have clear nights with bright and beautiful stars. In Morrowind it was rarely sunny and often gave way to so many other great forms of weather. When in rained the sky always darkened till it looked almost like night. In the deserts there were sand storms that made all the other people go inside or cover their faces. In the north there were dreary snow storms. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s was just a wonderful thing since many games try to make their world nice.
They often try to make their worlds like a safe haven from the real world with problems that the hero could easily solve by killing a villain. When you start playing Morrowind they give you a whole new world full of all new problems, problems that werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t caused by a villain. Problems like civil wars and famine and racism. Things that are in the real world but you would almost never find, let alone get to be part of, in a videogame.
Well, thanks for reading my nostalgic praise of a childhood game.

So, I've been watching a trailer for Fable 2 (yeah, I'm a nerd) and when I watch trailers for new games I like to go back and play the old games that they're improving because if you watch the trailer and you don't have anything to occupy your mind except for the fact that you can't play it for a few more months then you'll runn screaming around the house (or at least that happens to me) So, I watched the trailer and got all excited and ready to play Fable 2, or if not then just Fable, and if not that then just a normal RPG. Well, as it turns out my sister and I sold Fable and all our other RPG's and all I have here is Shooters. So here I sit, all ready to play Fable 2 and all I can do is shoot people. Well now I have to run screaming around the house.
