    I can agree with all of that.

    I loved it for those exact same reasons back in the day... but the ways that the game has progressed are absolutely amazing, IMO.

    Another reason is I (and all of my friends) are now married. I have '08 for PS3, but no one to play it with.

The guy had the timing down to the point where he could run right up to one of the "ghosts" just to watch it turn around as he expected. If he walked up to me today and claimed that Pac Man was his all-time favorite game, then I'd tip my cap to him despite the advances we've seen in gaming tech.

    I've actually lived the entire video game age, from grade school to now. I consider myself to be extremely lucky because of that. For me, the interesting thing is that it's not just "nostalgia" driving what we love about gaming, but moreso how much goshed darned fun we had playing a game regardless of simplicity, complexity, graphics, etc.

    And speaking of simple, I forgot to list my favorite online game- Yeti Golf. Ridiculously simple, but addictive to a fault. There's simply no way to play one game and then not play 100 more.

    Re: Your Favorite Video Game of All Time

    I remember when the Atari 2600 system first came out. Been what? 30 years ago. We had one in our division while in the Navy. You had Pong, Breakout, Space Invaders, Pacman, and one of my favorites "Auto Racing on Ice".

    I bought an Atari 5200 when they first came out, and played alot of Ms Pacman, Frogger, River Raid, Demon Attack, Joust, and one of my favorites - Centipede.

    The analog controllers were terrible and proved to be the system's downfall. We went through an awful lot of those 5200 controllers.

    But one of my favorite all-time arcade games was Galaga. Wasted alot of quarters on that game.



    What is interesting, with the advancements they have made in video game technology and graphics over the last 25-30 years, that my kids still love to play those old games. My 12 yr old has bought all the Namco and Midway Arcade Treasures games for both his Nintendo game Cube and X Box. And he still gets on these internet sites and plays such old classics like Paperboy and others.

    I'll let them hook it up to our 55" big screen on occasion and I'll play Galaga and others with them. But their hand and eye coordination is so good I never get a turn!

    Right now the big thing seems to be Guitar Hero and Rock Band. My daughter bought Guitar Hero 3 with her Christmas money. And in just a month I can't believe how good she has become. She sets that thing on the highest level and rocks. I get headaches and my eyes cross just trying to watch the TV screen.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    We spent a lot of time on Goldeneye on the N64 and the first couple of Tony Hawk games on PS2.

    Isn't there anybody else out there that has enjoyed the Halo series?

    Those games are fun and I enjoyed the storyline. However, I don't consider them all-time favorites just because they're really just Doom with amazing graphics and a good story. I put Metal Gear Solid up as a favorite shooter because it really differed from other shooters at the time because the emphasis was more on using stealth to infiltrate a facility to reach your goal rather than just blasting away at anything and everything in your path.

    I'd say the biggest problem with shooters like Halo is that they lack replay value. Are Halo games ones you find yourself playing over and over even 6 months after it came out? Or are they ones where you spend a few months defeating the game, maybe play some online challenges against others and try it on hard mode, then trade it in for a new game?

    Halo is fun, but not nearly innovative enough (really not innovative at all). The storyline is decent but not great. Fun game, lots of replay value because of X-Box live, but ultimately not great.

    Yes, absolutely. I think the Halo series is immensely replayable, both online and campaign (which can be online too). I haven't played a lot of H3 recently because CoD4 multi is a lot of fun but I do have a good group of peeps that goes back and forth between the two.

    I would say xbox-live is the reason that Halo is so replayable. I was still playing Halo 2 xbox-live on my old Xbox as recently as six months ago. I have probably logged thousands of hours playing the matchmaking and custom games with my friends. The game play changes every time on xbox-live because you are constantly given new game types and new opponents that use different strategies. All the while, you are working to increase your "ranking." Also, if Halo is Doom with better graphics, doesn't that make it a better game?
