    So, maybe this isn't the right place to talk about games...but I wanted to see how many med students are proactive gamers.

    Out of ANY person I know who has gained admission into med, not one has been the type who plays PC/Console games.

    Is there anyone here?

    i have a wii. i play it when i get the chance for free time, but normally it involves four or more people (not at the same time, but you get the picture). does that count?

    i know a med mate whos finished zelda too. Dont know any PC gamers out there, nintendo is our mani product, either on DS or wii....

    also: due to the affect of video games i must kill everything and anything in sight. it has inspired me to be a mass murderer. ayup, thats right. all due to the video games i play on rare occasions.

    I was a huge gamer back in the day (ie. before Yr. 11/12). I still remember how my friends and I had huge Smash Bros (the GCN one) tournaments thru the night. Yeah, and Mario Kart was always cool for parties too, as was Quake 3 or Halo over the school LAN. And you can't beat Zleda or FF for some epic gaming adventures. Yeah, them's were the days....

    Oh well, after Yr. 12 is over, I hope to get back into gaming in a big way - starting off with buying myself a Wii! :)

    Hmm, I used to play Age of Empires I ages ago, and was ranked in top 10. Quite sad I know

    I have a PS2 but haven't touched it for around a year and a half.

    Good thing I actually have a life now though ^_^

    PS. I realise the irony of posting on a forum at 3.20 in the morning but I've been busy ;)

    I used to play heaps on my PS One back in the day... played FFVIII and Tekkan... I have quite a few games on my comp and still play sometimes... I probably won't be into hardcore gaming during uni... but still play casually.

    yeah i have played a fair few games in my time but my favourites are:

    1. Perfect Dark on 64, i have yet to find anyone who could beat me at this game, it was awesome.

    2. Call of duty, pc, addictive

    3. Donkey Kong 1, on supernintendo, first game i ever got, and so well made, so many hours of fun when i was smaller.

    Tomb Raider is much more difficult for straight guys to play, especially when they're only using one hand.

    Hayden, you crack me up :)

    Is it weird that I've only ever played one or two of these games? At most?
