I like World of Warcraft and WarThunder at the moment. I've spent 1200 pounds upgrading stuff in WarThunder :)

The main reason for the above is that I can play them on my Mac whilst working.

Moved to off topic and title expanded.

The Uncharted series for me, and Carmageddon for something at the other end of the driving scale.

I recon you'd better change the title for starters!
Then i would've posted this in the off topic section!


And on topic.
I like myself some racing games, played all sorts, from Gran Turismo to forza, F1 from codemasters, Grid, Dirt, Colin Mcrae, Flatout, Racepro, DTM race driver (TOCA), Even tried Richard Burns Rallye :p

Other Genres i like,
First Person shooters from time to time: Battlefield
Sports games like FIFA
Action/Shooter/RPG from the likes of Mass Effect and Fallout
Used to play a lot of RTS too: Command & Conquer, and supreme commander.

I'm lost for words, I thought the idea of Free to play was so you didn't have to spend 1200 ??

I don't think they held a gun to his head and forced him to buy stuff.

Better Red Bull air races ;)

Or Reno, although I'm sure that would just cause complaints about oval racing

They should make a remake. I've never played read dead redemption. And some people say it was the best game the last years they've played.

It is! Pick it up from a bargain shelve if you still have a console that can play it, you won't regret it. The world is immersive, the artwork (colors and scenery) is drop dead gorgeous, the storyline is good and there is tons of cool stuff to do apart from doing said story. I put it on number 1 myself of all last gen games.

I can confirm, Red Dead Redemption was one of the best games of last generation, it was superb! :)

even with the typical glitches and quirks of open world games, it was incredible.

Im looking forward to Fallout 4 and I also spend a bit of time on flight sims like DCS world (mostly A-10) and Falcon BMS. (Anyone on here fly?)

I've always been kind of partial to Yahtzee, especially when it's played as a drinking game. I guess that would be considered the Drunkard Dice Game genre.

I don't know if Ian has but that is a great game as well, for me it's the best Mario Kart so far :)

Are they still unkillable in PvP? My first and only ragequit ever (WoW or otherwise) was in Warsong Gulch. I was "fighting" a discipline priest with my warrior (at least I think he noticed me) back in the WotLK days and the only thing I saw on my screen was absorb absorb absorb, with some low damage numbers strewn in-between. After a while we called it a draw and went on our separate ways, him capturing our flag, me pressing ALT+F4 and uninstalling WoW right then and there. I hate priests.

Nope, they've weakened a lot of the 'get out of jail' cards we used to have with regeneration and invisibility etc.

Yes, P-51D in DCS, sometimes FSX and I bought X-Plane 10 Global some months ago but didn't find enough time to get into it.

Hey that's cool I've spent the last year or so playing almost nothing but War Thunder on my PS4 while I waited for some good games to come out (Project Cars of course being one of said good games!)...question is, AB or RB? Planes or tonks? Which do you prefer?

If so, do you like it?

I think it is one of the biggest surprises in 2014 and still evolving.

Nah, I'm still smarting for Braben taking too much of my glory on the original Elite.

Even more confusing is the question in this interview: http://www.slightlymadstudios.com/team/ian-bell

What’s your favorite game of all time?

Elite – ground breaking, engrossing, and influential. Simply the best.;)

Yes, that's what got me interested and the guy with the same name sold the deal.

I lost months of my life to Elite, great months :)

Ian how did that Doctorate go? should we refer to you as Dr Bell? :)

I did two of them actually.

One was Neuroscience at Royal London Hospital (affiliated with Queen Mary College).

The second was Human Computer Interaction at Bournemouth.

I took the last one to final and was just working the last experiments as SimBin exploded (which I founded). Don't call me doctor therefore. :)

I have decided not to present the final experiments as I want to work my third doctorate thesis as 'crowd funding/crowd sourcing'. Which makes a lot of sense.

That's when I stopped last time. The music as you come across to Mexico is just perfect, but for some reason I stopped and just never went back. Don't think I could do it now.
