No, it's not, it's from the Irish word for "bard".

Why Bard? Because my favourite game is The Bard's Tale.

bards tale original.. or the crappy remake?

i love the origi...
im a hardcore gamer.. and a classic one...
nothing beats old games, as new games have lost their soul in sacrifice for visuals... character depth for bloom and hdr... wee...

fallout 3 is a prime example of a failing community of droning zombie pushing game devs..

Original AND the crappy remake.

I love 'em both, actually.

Indeed, modern games are quite idiotic and goalless, while games like Mario and Tetris train your brain.

Btw, a lot of videogames have some of my favorite music. :)

I don't agree all modern games are idiotic, but I do favor the older games in general. It's not like Doom involved a lot of thought, but I love that game!! Halo?? Pfffft it wishes it was as cool as Doom ;)

Are you interested in Ireland?

I'm originally from Ireland. I was born there, but when I was 5, we went to Belgium. =/

OT:

It's true that a lot of videogames have awesome music on them, for example: the tetris themesong! It's on my ipod in 5 different versions (rock version, drum 'n bass version, original, metal version and rockabilly version)

Nope, not really. I mean, I guess it's an interesting enough country. I was very tired and that response made perfect sense in my mind at the time.

I've been playing Nintendo game at 6 years olds. Have had many different periods in my life regarding videos games and styles of games. Sometimes I could have said video games suck, sometimes I could have said I'm a hardcore gamer. But I think they're just part of culture now.

My best video game memories are Zelda III (Snes), X-wing, Tie Fighter, Dune 2, Waracraft 2, Day of the Tentacles, Syndicates, Civilization series/Colonization, ... I probably forget some ...

More recently I've been making videos in World of Warcraft, tested Eve Online, and sometimes been 'addicted' to Civilization IV.

I'm not playing anything right now, but the only thing I'm really expecting to test is Starcraft II.


(Never played a game for the music !)

I was talking about Doom on the old PSX. You coudn't save and load like that. On the PC versions you could, but you are just taking the challenge outta the game there yourself. 

Playing classic games on new systems really take the challenge of the old games since a lot of times they let you save anywhere. That's dumb because people just then tend to abuse that stuff.

Which classic games do you like?
As for Doom, well, I played it when it first came out, and FPS were still a new thing, so I guess it was good at least for its time, although now it may look rudimentary. 
FPS aren't my favourite games, but they can be fun to play. I haven't played many of the recent ones, especially because they become repetitive.. I played Crysis and I didn't really enjoy it.. It's almost the same thing as Far Cry, only with slightly better graphics (unless you have a super computer and can play it with all details set on High) and it's really short.. Nothing special in my opinion. I prefer Bioshock.. at least the storyline is a bit more original than the one of other FPS. 
What I usually don't enjoy much about FPS is the storyline..And some of them are plainly military propaganda..Don't like that..although they're just games.
What I dislike about recent PC games is that I noticed that too often developers rush to release them when they can still be considered "beta" material.. then, when it comes out,  you get an extremely buggy game which needs tons of updates to run OK, a game that is not really optimized and will run slowly even on the fastest computer in existence, or a game with a really bad ending (cause the company decided they had to release it quickly).. It's all done to make you spend money on the newest pc.. with the newest graphics card.. with the latest system.. Screw that.. I'd rather stick with the older stuff.
And another thing that sucks is that some games get too much publicity, while some good games don't.

That's true, although probably one of the biggest challenges i took in videogames, was when i played an old game, the original Prince of Persia (the one in 2D).. You had 1 hour time to finish the game and couldn't save. If you died you had to restart the level. Maybe it seemed a challenge to me because i was just a child, but I remember getting upset when I died and realized there were a few minutes left to finish the game.
The traps scared me. 
Fun times.

Man I dunno I played pretty much every game on the NES, a lot of Atari 2600 games (I actually have a Atari 7800 on the left side of my LCD tv and a PS3 on the right side of my tv). Talk about a huuge generatation gap there. Then yeah I played a whole bunch of Genesis/Snes/PSX/Ps2. As far as PS3 games though I mostly just play sports games on it ha, that's most of my collection for the PS3 anyway.

I remember that name and I'm sure I played it, but I never really got into it. I'm pretty big on RPGs too so I know a lot of obscure rpgs before Final Fantasy VII hit big and still others after it hit.

There are some shooters with good stories...Deus Ex, System Shock, BioShock...Condemned: Criminal Origins had a good one as well even if it isn't really a shooter.

Prince of Persia is one of my all time favorites. I hated the first fight with the swordman when I was young and I still hate it :D
I even downloaded the game to my webfolder in high school so I could play it from every computer in there. I remember when I was playing it when we had a substitute teacher in health education and we held presentations in groups. Of course I was playing Prince of Persia with those beeping DOS-sounds, haha.
The substitute teacher said we can play if we don't talk and disturb others. I loved the face of people when I opened for example doors in the game. BEEP, BEEP, BEEP. Talk about dying...

Well, I guess it all depends on your taste on games.

I really love games like pong and tetris! You know, the games that you can keep on playing forever, because there's no end to them.

When I play tetris on my old NES, I put it on pause when I go to bed and when I want to play again, I just turn it on again.

And I'm absolutely in LOVE with the old marios! Not the new 3D ones, fuck that shit. 

And Sonic is great too.
