That's when your post started failing. What's so bad about Crysis' requirements anyways? It runs fine on my computer (X2 3800+, 1GB RAM, 7900 GT) at medium settings. No worse than UT3, at least.

who the hell said they are upgrading JUST to play crysis? Everyone is upgrading for the sole purpose of future games or just for the hell of it.

There's a bit of lag but for a computer that cost me ~$600 a year ago I'm not complaining, especially since Crysis still looks beautiful. So long as it stays in or above the 20 region for frames per second and doesn't stutter constantly I'm fine. It wasn't until late last year that I upgraded from a 1.4Ghz T-bird, 512MB RAM, and 9200, so I'm used to the lag. :p

Hl2 engine and unreal 3 engine will be more prevalent among online and popular games for awhile and these engines run great on mid range systems.

go play age of empires
Yep, you're right. It's Minesweeper for me from now on.

While we're at it, let's go back to horse and buggy for transportation. :confused:

Chill out about age of empires.

it's not that great of a game, just like Command & Conquer wasn't. It's just amazing graphics and beautiful achievements in graphic design. People who upgrade for the sole purpose of playing the next big walletsucker is ridiculous at times. The classics will be more popular games for awhile and run great on mid range systems.

go play some Dune

In all fairness he's got 96 posts since June of 2004. Its not like he's wasting his life here, and his opinion was topical. Off Topic is for things that dont fit anywhere else. This belongs here, even though his opinion stinks and is poorly stated.

Yeah I'm sorry if i offended people, I just remember a thread like this going around back when HL2 was coming out and people cried about the sys reqs. No offense, Crysis is sweet.

Amusing that a longtime lurker just made you guys get all angry about a... game ;)

I'm not particularly excited about Crysis either. FarCry began nicely when fighting soldiers in the jungle, but I barely finished it after the story went wonkers.

It's amazing how easily some people's buttons are pushed.

I loved Far Cry, I'm sure I'll love Crysis as well. Who publishes Age of Empires anyway? In other words, where is the OP employed? :laugh:

i also didn't care for HL2.
I've always wanted to ask you which games you actually do like/have liked? Everytime I see you post about a game you always say you hated it or it sucks.

I'm not trying to flame you or anything, I'm genuinely curious. :)

I've posted many times about games i like. everyone just seems to focus on the negative ones.


SoF2 is one I rave about when anyone brings it up.
Other ones I have liked are:

Portal
Bioshock
UT3
UT99
R6: Vegas
Gun
TF2
WoW (until you get to the endgame although I've tried to go back to it a few times and can't get back into it)
CoD
CoD2
DAoC (in its heyday)
AoE2
C&C (all of them)
Diablo
Diablo2
NFS: MW
GTA3 and the one after that
Warcraft2
Warcraft 3
Fallout 1
Fallout 2
Fallout Tactics (or whatever it was called)
Max Payne 1 and 2

plus plenty more

Why surprised? i really love the CoD series up to that point. Never played 3 because it was console only and I'm not sold on 4 yet.

I just remember a lot of people here ripping it apart. I thought I was in the minority with those who liked it.
