I don’t even know what language you’re all speaking.

It’s a +1 for the horse race from me. Most profitable 3 minutes of my life.

I know quite a few guys that game (and are quite good), but if you called them nerds they would probly benchpress and then eat you.
Moral of the story not all gamers are nerds

None of you dudes are really geeks, BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T MENTION MODERN WARFARE 3 OMG! Only a few days now!

Ah Modern Warfare, the distraction to keep the drooling masses from BF3 servers.

I don’t even play the multiplayer sections ot Modern warfare or BF3, I am completely addicted to the mad over the top story lines in the Single player mode. You can’t beat Modern warfare for over the top story! Take MW2 for example *story spoiler*

-Undercover American deep cover agent forced to shoot russian civilians in a Russian airport thinking he is still in deep cover. He isn’t and get’s shot and left on the scene by evil terrorists he’s infiltrating.

-Russian authorities figure out that it is an American agent.

-Russia aggresively invades the USA due to the airport incident (thinking the whole thing was US endorsed).

-Russia brings the USA to it’s knees almost winning the war WHEN –

-Another evil terrorist launches a nuclear missile at Washington from across the world but it accidently explodes high in the atmosphere acting as a powerful EMP knocking out Russian communications and electronics in the USA.

-This allows defending US forces to get the edge needed to repel the Russian invasion – winning the war!

More epic than Spielberg!

Three minutes plus, actually.

That would make is an even bigger waste of time then.

Not when that 3 minutes nets you over $500…

I don’t want to sound like a dangerous psychopath or anything, but the best first person shooter is undoubtedly had when you are the first person shooting something like one of these…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ot6AmtOEcLM&feature=related

Once you can put 5 rounds into a playing card at 300m, it’s hard to go back to computer games.

No animals were harmed in the making of Battlefield 3. But several programmers did get the crap beaten out of them a few times…

JB have you played BF3? If you had you wouldn’t laugh at its Google search supremacy!

Word – I don’t really play many FPS games (especially online ones where having a set of boobs seems to make some assume that it somehow affects my hand-eye coordination) but even I liked it when I had a stab 🙂

It’s very nice on the eyes too!

I have often heard of the mythical entity that is “girl gamers”. Never seen one in real life though! I agree, the game looks and sounds awesome. I cant stop playing it, I feel like ditching work now to play………………..FML.
