Nobody mentioned "Left 4 Dead"? It looks awesome and set to change the way we play team based FPS'es.

Hrmm, sounds too much like Bioshock, that game was creepy. I couldn’t play it for more than an 30 minutes at a time.
That whiney little girls voice in the background all the time, “nobody loves meee…..”

LOL !

I think that is the whole idea of the game and if it creeps you out, then I guess the game is doing its job :D

BTW that is one eye candy of a game !

Nah, Left 4 Dead isn't supposed to be as creepy as Bioshock but it is meant to be scary but in a more up front "OMG! WTF?" kind of way. It's essentially living through a survivor's eyes in a zombie war. Bioshock was more of a spine chilling, creepy, freak show. This is much more in your face... and back.

Not to mention Left 4 Dead is a 4 player co - op.

Brought to you by the same studio that basically did CS:S. Check out the E3 news though, some good trailers for RAGE from id and others.

Actually L4D is an 8 player co-op. You get to play as the 4 player survivor team or the 4 player "infected" team. Personally, I think infected can be real fun.

Here's the latest interview on DA:O.

Gametrailers.com - Dragon Age: Origins - E3 2008: Combat System Interview HD


Sorry Folks. Posted this on wrong thread. Should have been on existing DA:O thread. Feel like a chucklehead.

Although that doesn't mean I don't play non linear games from time to time.

As to Call Of Duty, big fan of the game too - I've seen some footage for COD 5, world at war, and it really looks good, I hope it will last longer - Looks like both COD5 and FC2 will require some good hardware to play full quality - I'm just a little disappointed to see the lack of DX10 titles - most are DX9. I would like to see more games use the FULL features of DX10, or more of them.

DX11 is around the corner, and we already only have a handful of DX10 stuff :D
My preference is just the opposite, but for exactly the same reason.

I prefer open ended games because of the massive amount of gameplay I can get out of them, and pretty well detest those that are done within a week of solid gameplay.

This type of gameplay also helps out on the piracy issue. Smart PC developers should recognize the practicality of Blizzard's battlenet model. Not only does free on-line play keep folks coming back for added content, it also gives the developer an active chance to counter cracks/hacks in a manner which doesn't involve mucking about with my OS/Drivers.

Anticipated titles for me would definately be DIII, and (I'm not even sure if this is in the works) a follow up to Oblivion.

Agreed, the best way to solve piracy is to make a solid game that makes people want to come back for more, as well as free-play online where they can check that the key isn't in use, and eliminate such theft.
