    Re: What games did you play before WoW

    I played Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, and Counter Strike: Source mainly. Yeah, WoW was a big change. But, as soon as Battlefield 3 comes out, I don't know if I'll pay WoW much mind except for maybe a little Cataclysm.

    I've been playing console games since the original NES. But when Halo 2 came out, I played a lot on xbox live with my friends. That opened up the whole online gaming for me. Then it was Final Fantasy XI, and that opened up the world of MMOs to me. Now I'm in WoW, and an occasional console game.

    Re: What games did you play before WoW

    @Mistreseliza.. I've been playing games since the Atari 2600, Apple IIe, Intellivision days. Yes, I'm old... and No.. I'm not going to list an archive of games.

    In 2004, prior to starting WoW, I played alot of games on Xbox Live- Halo2, Crimson Skies, PGR2 etc. I was actually fairly competitive, and came 3rd in my State for the World Cyber Games for Halo. I also played SC, W3, CS, Q3A and HoMM3, UT3 and DotA all on the PC, and mainly multiplayer. I still play those games casually, but WoW has certainly led to a degradation of skills in other genres / platforms.

    Re: What games did you play before WoW

    I used to play alot more strategy games, dungeon keeper, starcraft, red alert etc*

    Then moved on to FF (4-10, then they got pants), unreal tourny, quake, halo etc

    THEN DISCOVERED WOW

    And now I play wow, mirror's edge, halo 3, beautiful katamari, left 4 dead, mario kart etc

    *can anyone remember a PC strategy game from the 90s that was fantasy, there were 3 races ('good' humans, 'evil' undead, and another I can't remember), and each could build an awesome dragon unit I remember humans could build trebuchets, and the undead could build these lil guys that floated around on carpets. Oh, and you'd start the match with your 'king' as a playble unit, and I'm pretty sure everything could lvl up too... damn awesome game.

    well I sure hope FF9 was one of 'em :O even if you didn't like 8 (which I can completely understand) 9 was a fantastic return to form, and although the opening drags, it slowly starts to pick up, and by the end you'll be hooked (don't worry, you get more solid villains than just the queen too XD )

    Re: What games did you play before WoW

    Assuming you mean right before WoW, and not every single game we played before;

    Guild Wars. People from there were bashing WoW already, so I didn't even consider going over to WoW. However, after I found out some IRL friends played it, I decided to give it a try.

    I remember being very excited about actually being able to jump while moving, and without having to write an emote, not to mention the many different races and classes you could pick in comparison to Guild Wars. Needless to say, I dropped Guild Wars immediately and started leveling my Human Warrior(which I dropped at level 23 for an Undead Rogue).


    Guild Wars was pretty, but the game-play was extremely boring(might have changed?)
