You don't know what a box that clearly says "System Shock 2" on front is?

Anyway, SS2 is one of my favourite games and a must-play for everybody, nice pick up Strider :)

This is Bioshock's predecessor, right? I also will admit to not having played it.

Nice! I never played that game, it seems so obscure and odd that it's so successful but so few people are talking about it. One of my friends recommended it but I never got to play it.

@Blitz: Sort of, they're made by the same people and have some surface similarities, but the style of the two games are quite different.

Yeah, you'll notice a couple of ideas that made the jump from System Shock 2 to Bioshock, but otherwise it's a very different and frankly much deeper game.

It's closer to a predecessor of Deus Ex than Bioshock, really, and it shares a lot of similarities with Looking Glass' previous games.

The fact that it was made by both Irrational (of Bioshock) and Looking Glass (my favourite developer) is icing on the cake.

13 years? You should file a complaint to the mail service.

Wow, really awesome.

Fun until it gets unforgiving and near-to-impossible.

Never played it :P

Fun from start to finish. The unforgiving bit is why it's so good compared to todays games. You are never safe. It's relentless, challenging, terrifying... and awesome.

I really found the final chapters to be the easiest of the entire game :P

I believe it went something like this:
1. Grenade launcher
2. EMP grenades
3. Ability to clone objects (specifically, the grenades)
4. 4 ICE picks for instant final boss killifying

I want a mint condition first-run copy of HL. Not a Game of the Year edition.

pb: it looks like a big coffee table book to me ;)

I freely admit i need to play more games, so so many good ones out there i never tried.

I pretty much started playing cs and starcraft because my that's what my roommate played, and i never really branched out to other gaems fsr.. (don't own an xbox nor ps3 either)

I still have yet to finish the first System Shock. :(
Commented 6 years ago2012-07-09 16:05:49 UTC Comment #39655
In all fairness Cap't, CS and SC are a pretty awesome two games to play if you're going to only play two!

I do love me some Starcraft
I had SS2 back in the day but it scared the fuck out of me so i didnt play.
I should hike up my shorts and play it in my more mature state.

OMG. and i hate using "OMG", but WOW! It's definitely on my wish list. I'm still waiting to play what I expect to be my favorite game. Did you get a good deal on it?
