If there are any nerds on this board that wanna talk Skyrim, let's do it. We are within a month of this ultra-epic game coming out. The Pack are 5-0 and probably the most anticipated games of the past 5 years is coming out, Life is good!

Screw Gears! While 3rd person shooters are fun for 6 hours they always become stagnate(halos excluded due to popularity). Zero check skyrim out I bet you enjoy it.
Nerds and geeks unite pal!

Halo was a first-person shooter. What is a third-person shooter anyway?

And the name Skyrim is about as amusing to me as the label on my wife's bottle of rimming sugar.

That's some gameplay from the TRUE king of 3rd person shooters, Mass Effect (the second game of the series).

As for Skyrim, it's probably gonna be really good, but I don't:

a) have the time for a lot of games and this doesn't make the cut
b) the setting of Elder Scrolls game don't interest me

I'll have to look into Skyrim. Right now I've just finished AC: Brotherhood and casually working on getting 100% synch done and playing a little bit of City of Heroes: Freedom (free version) with some friends.

Rourke, 3rd person shooters are exactly that.. A shooting game with the camera above and behind the character. That Mass Effect 2 video is a good clip of a 3rd person shooter.

I know it's a bit off, but I'm actually waiting in anticipation for AC:Revelations to come out. I'm hooked on that storyline.

Forget all this gaming b.s. I want to talk about how great the OP's avatar is.

None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

You are correct on the first/third person mistake I made. But for the record mass effect is considered an rpg not a third person shooter. I thought maybe someone would like to talk about SKYRIM and not everything else, my bad. Go ahead and delete the thread Zero since I'm the only nerd on this board.

Just because you may be the only Skyrim aficionado on this board does not mean you are the only nerd on this board.

By the way, I don't think threads ever truly stay on topic here.

Formo if you have the patience for Assasins Creed then you should have no problem with Skyrim. Granted it is a risky move since they will have nothing in common playability wise.

Can I just line all of you up and shoot you right now? You're young, dumb, and full of cum - Go eat some pussy for the love of God.

I know Zombie, you agree with me again!!!!!!!!!!

I'd like to know why you think gaming and sex are mutually exclusive.

Well I wouldn't call either of the Mass Effect games released thus far true "RPG games". More like 3rd person shooters with deep RPG elements. But I can see why people call it an RPG over a shooter, after all the story and narrative are a much bigger part of the game than the gameplay and combat.

Regardless, best video game series ever. If any gamer here is into sci-fi and hasn't played Mass Effect they seriously need to go get it.

Sex and gaming may not be mutually exclusive, but I'd be willing to be a decent sum there is a rather strong negative correlation between frequency of gaming and frequency of sex across the gamer population.

That's probably true. All I can say for certain is that I play more than the average joe and I have girlfriend with whom I will spend the rest of my life with.
