(this is *well* off topic, guys, sorry)

A good friend of mine has just launched a non-profit website, "Am I Game or Lame?", which is trying to find out which is the
Greatest computer game of all time. or something. Basically the site picks two games from a database of 500 (painstakingly
entered by myself and many others) and asks you to pick one or t'other. We're hoping to get lots of people voting,
and eventually find a winner!

If you're into your games - check it out:

What is everyone's fave game of all time?

IMO you can't beat the Resident Evil games, in particular Resi2. Fantastic graphics, gameplay you can't put down, and pure pant filling horror when played in the dark.

Superb!!!

Yeah, you should look into the Game that my company is releasing for the Nintendo Game Cube. It's called "Eternal Darkness".

I am in charge of the 3D Evironments department.

Had a look Pat, good stuff.
What else have Silicon Knights done? Didn't they have a hand in the original Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen? Great Game!

YES! Yes they did. That was Legacy of Kain Blood Omen was released for the Sony Playstation. Before that, they produced P.C. based games. R.P.G.s

That was all before my time, I joined the team 3.5 years ago.

I got on at the right time too. The company's staff has doubled since I've started. It's pretty cool here. Too many hours is the only downfall.

Cheers!

1: Street Fighter 2
2: Tomb Raider (the first one)
3: Metal Gear Solid (again, the first one)
4: Star Fox
5: Doom

Rodders, if you love survival horrors with a twist of authentic history, you have to check out Eternal Darkness. It will kick your hiney!

Peace!

Pat, i've just been reading about the game you're working on and it looks fecking wicked. Can you give me a bit of background info on it eg. storyline etc..?

Sorry if this is boring for other posters but im in two minds whether to purchase a GameCube, the fact that Capcom are developing the ResEvil series exclusively plus Eternal Darkness could sway my decision.

Got a GC on Friday. At £130 be rude not to. Can't wait for RE series. Pretty impressed so far.

Pure nostalgia on my part, but wasn't 'Manic Miner' a classic on the ZX Spectrum...
