good time for game releases

Halo 2, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Metroid Prime 2: Echos

Who's going to have all 3?

Personally I can't wait for the new Metroid, even though I'm not done with the first one yet!

ahh Metal Gear, you know I haven't played Metal Gear since the old school nintendo days. I guess I should give it a try, it's a stealth game right? Anything like Splinter Cell?

It is similar to Splinter Cell, though I think Metal Gear is more 'stay in the shadows' and stealthy than Splinter Cell which is more 'shoot 'em up'. Funny thing is, the first Metal Gear for PS1 is, in my opinion, just as good graphics-wise as Metal Gear 2 for PS2. In fact, I liked the Metal Gear Solid for PS1 better than the sequel for PS2 -- it seemed longer and more involved. I hate it when much anticipated sequels are shorter than the originals.

That's also what I read in a review about Halo 2 as well -- not long enough.

I'm thinking about maybe getting back into games when I graduate in the Spring. I haven't really played any games since the days of Street Fighter II on Genesis. I played a friend's N64 several times, but it would always give me tunnel vision and make one of my eyes twitch.

I knew sooner or later they would have to adjust, the ESPN games put more pressure on them than they thought they would.

In the end the consumers win out, so it's all good with me!

I am looking forward to playing Metal Gear 3, I thought that MG 2 was good, I got hooked on it because I played MG 1 on my brother in laws ps1. I think that MG 1 or 2 is great. You really should check them out.

Are you into Metroid?

If you get the cube Metroid Prime is must-have in my opinion.

Metroid Prime was one of the best games I've ever played, and Echos should be just as good if not a touch better.

I waited until Wind Waker went on sale, got it for $16 at Target a few weeks ago. I haven't really gotten into it yet though, been too busy with Vice City, Metroid Prime and Madden of course.
