I've been hooked to flight sims for ages. My current favourite (for the past 2 years!) are the 'Strike Fighter' & 'Wings over ....' series from Thirdwire. I just enjoy the thrill of flying different fighter planes over different terrains in fictional/historical wars. These games are also easy to modify by downloading add-ons from the Internet -- my favourite is an Indian Subcontinent add-on in which I have the option of flying in Indian or Pakistani jets engaged in combat over the subcontinent.

I used to play daily till 2-3 a.m. after coming home from work at 12a.m. but had to curtail it to weekend nights only, after the wife threatened to break my joystick. But every now and then, on my way to work when I see a jet fighter taking off from the HAL airport, the itch kicks in and that night I sit late throwing all restrictions to the wind!

Didn't try Undercover as I got bored of the repetitive style of street racing.

Currently playing "Need for Speed: Shift" on minimal graphics settings. Floored by it.
I installed NFS shift on laptop over the weekend. Tried for 2 days, but still am not able to control the car. The car goes everywhere else other than the road.

How are you managing??

You cant play NFS Shift on anything lesser than a Microsoft Xbox controller or a Steering control. Its impossible to fine throttle on the normal keyboard whereas you can throttle in and out smoothly on the joysticks or pedals. brilliant game!

===============
ALso what are the games which are the most happenig nowadays and are worth buying in PS2?
Go for PS3 now the prices have dropped to 20k and the configurations have been updated to 80GB + there are some freebies

I'm an ardent fan of XBox.. but PS3 is now becoming high on VFM.
And nowadays, the game titles are almost same in both the universes.

I am also a hardcore fan of NFS series. Following have been completed till date

Need For Speed 1
Need For Speed 2 : Just loved the Proving Grounds & the McLaren F1
Need For Speed 3 : Hot Pursuit
Need For Speed High Stakes
Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed : Loved the way Porsches handle here
Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2
Need For Speed Underground
Need For Speed Underground 2
Need For Speed Prostreet
Need For Speed Carbon
Need For Speed Most Wanted
Need For Speed Undercover

Burnout Paradise : The ultimate Box.


Currently playing : Need For Speed Shift. It is a brilliant drivers' game but somehow I feel that it does not suit the NFS badge. Too much precision rather than fun. Should have been the next GTR. Moreover, I miss those EA Trax, Illegal racing & police pursuits.

I was looking for a thread on gaming (expect T-Bhp to have everything on everything) and stumbled upon this. This thread sure is dying a slow death. Anyhow, my favorite game, without a shred of doubt thus far is "God of war 2". i think it should come with a warning though ...... something like - "WARNING - your wife might beat the living daylights out of you as you would be oblivious to your surroundings for hours while playing this game".

How cool is Kratos. Cant wait to get my hands on a PS3. Will continue begging the wife for her permission (Sob..). Has anyone seen the videos / spoilers of actual gameplay? MAANNNNNNNN. I always thought how would Sony better the most awesome game ever. Well, they just did.
