Okay, well recently I've found myself to have more spare time than I used to, reasons are unimportant, and I'm going to get gaming again.
My problem is all the games I love most, I've played over and over and over.
So, I'm planning on getting a new console soon, to get some of the newer games and such but I was wondering what games, console and such people would reccomend.
But instead of just asking for those two, I thought I'd make it more interesting instead of just a "Console wars" type question.
So to help me choose and to give people some ideas of good games:

1. Favorite console?
2. Favorite computer-gaming platform?
3. Favorite new/modern game?
4. Favorite game of all time, ever, for any console or gaming system?

I'd say, at the minute..
1. Xbox
2. PC, Windows XP Home SP2
3. Tough one... Assassin's Creed probably
4. Another tough one... probably the original Half Life game, or an oldie like Stonekeep

That'l probably change soon, because like I said I'm planning on getting a new console and games etc..

Well, I get ask this daily, as I work at a game sales store.
Anyways, To help best recommend a console what is/are...

1) Your favorite console so far?
2) Your favorite game genre? (FPS,Strategy,ect...)
3) Are you six? (If so I can recommend the wii)
4) Favorite Game of all time?
5) How much do you expect to spend?
6) Consoles/Games do you currently own?
7) Do you play online?

Point is that there was no need to list down more since OP already had enough information in post for his survey.

1) N64/NES/N64/SNES/Gamecube/Gb(a)/NDS/, that order.
2) WinXP SP1/2.
3) Hmz. Tough. The Half-life 2 games, probably. And portal.
4) Oooh tough. Ocarina of Time, probably. After that; Metroid Prime (the first one), any Megaman game, Metal Gear Solid.

I know a nice fifth question, though, favourite multiplayer game: the Smash series.

Warlords on the Atari 2600. Pfft Nah, seriously, Smash is great... my fav multiplayer game would be Unreal Tournament, though - followed closely by Smash Bros.

I hate replying to these things late. It makes me feel like I'm just copying off everyone else. Oh well...

1) Definitely N64.
2) Windows XP
3) Hmmm... Probably Dead Rising or Mass Effect. I am looking forward to Gears2, though.
4) Star Fox 64. I don't even know why. It's just so... awesome. Super Smash Brothers is a great game as well.

5) Favorite multiplayer game ever... Well, since Super Smash has been mentioned quite a few times, I'll say my (very) close second. Goldeneye 007.

Thanks for all the replies and stuff guys.
Some nice game ideas there. Interesting to see a few of them occur more than once.. might definitely have to check those out, especially the N64 oldies ^^

Anyhow, I got an Xbox 360.
Now I just need to save up to get some good games for it.

I bought it with Star Wars: Force Unleashed, which was good and all.. but I've finished it in under 6 hours.

So, does anyone have any good reccomendations of good games for the 360? I'm thinking Mass Effect, Dead Rising, Far Cry 2, UT3, Ninja Gaiden 2.. Not all at once obviously, they're just ideas ^^

Also, does anyone have any online game suggestions that are really good.. excepting the obvious Halo 3, COD4, Ghost Recon, etc...

It all depends on what you enjoy. Mass Effect is a lot like the old KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic) games. A huge amount of dialog and side missions rolled into a giant game of epic proportions. I know people that hated it because of that. Listening to animated characters talk does tend to get old, but I found the story intriguing and the gameplay fun.

Dead Rising is hard. Getting started sucks and the whole timed gameplay puts a sort of stress on the player. And the save system is horrible. But if the thought of running around a mall and killing tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of zombies with frying pans and sledge hammers sounds interesting to you... Oh, and if you get far enough you can eventually karate chop their heads off. That's right. Karate chop their heads off.

Once again, it's all personal preference. I like games to be difficult (Here's to you, Ikaruga). First person shooters have gotten sort of old, so anything out of the ordinary usually catches my attention. I find Rock Band and Guitar Hero pretty fun. I've also heard that Bioshock is amazing. Haven't gotten around to playing it, yet, so I can't really have an opinion.

I didn't really want to write so much but... well... I did. Oops.

BIOSHOCK!!!!! Amazing game. (not multiplayer)

But Rainbow Six Vegas 1/2 is kinda cool with Multi.

Burnout Revenge / Paradise, Gears of War (second one comes out next month), Assasin's Creed... for ones that hadn't been mentioned as far as I could see.

A lot of interesting views there.

It seems the NES and N64 have popped up a hell of a lot in people's favorite console. I've never had either of those two myself, I did (and do still somewhere) have a SNES though.. lots of good memories for games on that one.

Well, I went ahead and bought some games today.
I can honestly say I've spent all the money I'd saved up Sad hahah

So far for my 360 then I've got 10 games, not bad to say I've only had it 3/4 days haha

Star Wars: Force Unleashed
Tomb Raider: Anniversary
Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 1 & 2
skate.
Bulletwitch
FEAR (Haven't tried this one yet, I've been told it's scary so I'm saving it for tomorrow night sat alone in the dark for full effect. Sad? Oh well ^^)
Ninja Gaiden II (Haven't tried yet)
Halo 3 (Haven't treid yet)
Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 (playing atm... is pretty damn fun online ^^)

So that's not a bad selection I think. There's just a few more games that're coming out soon that I'm waiting for but apart from that I think those should do me for a while. Especially considering I have the 1 month free trial of Xbox Live Gold, so I'll be able to play online if I finish any of them quickly.
