On my case, the favorite gaming titles are usually all about action.

Favorite gaming genres:
- All action games in general (specially the ones which are relationed with war);
- FPS's (First Person Shooters, tons of games);
- Strategy Games (specially RTS - Real Time Strategy);
- Stealth games (specially Metal Gear or Splinter Cell among others);
- A few RPG's (specially Final Fantasy);
- A few racing titles (specially Gran Turismo).

About Mods, I don't have an all time favorite (there are lots of great ones), but I specially play mods relationed with FPS and RTS gamin (Counter Strike, Battlefields and obviously, C&C's).

All time favorite games/series:
Metal Gear Series (definitely 8) ).

For the PC:
-------------

Zero Hour with my favorite mods:
* Shockwave
* Project Raptor
* The Art of War (I hope, when she comes out. Sounds great)

C&C3 - Tib War
* I haven't played any mods yet. I could use a recommendation.

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
* GTA N00bmode V2.0 mod

Age of Empires II
Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition

I'm sure I'm forgetting some other titles here. I'm currently running a laptop. I hope to get a desktop with a real good video card so I can play the more graphically advanced game sometime toward the end of the year.

I would like to get my hands on Grand Theft Auto IV, but I'm worried that my dual core laptop won't run it. I can't seem to find a demo for it, just to test it out.


PS2 Games:
-------------
Grand Theft Auto III (which my brother's ex-wife's brother has and never returned it unhappy smileys)
Madden '09 (although I'm pissed at not having the ability to create custom playbooks in franchise mode)
Final Fantasy X
State of Emergency
Ace Combat 4 (again lent out and gone. Never returned.)
Ace Combat 5

What are the best Zerohour mods out there? (I can't wait any longer for TAOW, if I play one more game of EA's boring @$$ Zerohour I am going to punch a kitten! My next resort, Old Maid for fingers.)
Help me out here guys!

Project Raptor - version 7.0:
http://projectraptor.cncguild.net/

Many, many, great units to play with. Sadly no longer in development. (I am biased of course since I worked for Project Raptor. lol)


Shockwave - version 0.96:
http://shockwavemod.cncreneclips.com/

Some really cool features and still in production. Last I heard they will have a navies in a future release of the mod.

Both are fun to play with and both are worth trying.

I hope the Project Raptor guys won't give up pale (PR is one of the most promising ZH Mods).

Another mod you may want to try is Mideast Crisis (their team was awesome, they gave us access their models, the Mideast Crisis project was unfortunately halted Sad ), here's their Moddb page:

http://www.moddb.com/mods/mideast-crisis


I completely recommend Cold War Crisis (this is probably the only ZH Realism-based mod which managed to be completed so far):

http://www.moddb.com/mods/cold-war-crisis


If you like WW2 mods, I completely recommend you try Blitzkrieg II: The Finest Hour, unfortunately I haven't heard from their team in quite a while (the project may be dead Sad ).

Project Raptor has been in 'permanent hiatus' now for about 18 months.

I didn't know Mideast Crisis stopped production.

Did they give a reason? It's a shame. I played that mod only just a couple of times but it seemed like a good mod with a lot of support for it, teamwise.

Yeah, the Mideast Crisis (1) for Zero Hour can be considered to be complete at this point, they are focusing on a BIG project, the Mideast Crisis 2 for Tiberium Wars, check their moddb profile:

That's good to hear that they're doing a mod for C&C3 TW. It's a good game and all, but I still prefer Zero Hour.

Laughing Yeah, I think that RA3 haves even more "exotic" stuff (assault bears, etc.)

I was playing call of duty... 4 I think and I was thinking. Wouldn't it be nice to take a game like zerohour and integrate it into a first person shooter so you could hop into the first person POV and tear it up for a while, then maybe jump into a tank and command it, each person developing their own armies and abilities. Teaming up to invade other armies homelands. Using 2 monitors running the same program from different perspectives for each player. Or even just using one for game controls. Just an idea.

You're right it would be neat to see a Zero Hour based FPS. EA was going to a C&C3 based FPS called Tiberium until it was canceled:

Electronic Arts (EA) has decided to cancel its upcoming game, Tiberium. The first person shooter game set in Command & Conquer universe was under development at EA’s Los Angeles Studio. However, due to the game not “meeting standards” of EA, the development of the game was shut down.

EA’s spokesperson Mariam Sughayer said, “EA has suspended work on Tiberium effective immediately.” On other hand Kotaku has got the memo from Mike Verdu, EA LA which says, “The game had fundamental design challenges from the start. We fought to correct the issues, but we were not successful; the game just isn’t coming together well enough to meet our own quality expectations as well as those of our consumers.”

The game was supposed to hit various platforms including PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

In July the developer postponed the release of the game to 2009. However, now it seems EA has totally suspended the production of the game.

Source - TechShout.com:
http://www.techshout.com/gaming/2008/01/ea-cancels-first-person-shooter-tiberium/


Synopsis

In 2058, eleven years after the Third Tiberium War, a wasteland covers what was once the Mediterranean Sea. The player takes the role of Ricardo Vega (main character of the novel), a GDI Forward Battle commander recently pulled out of retirement, who is exploring the single complete Scrin Threshold Tower, called "Tower Omega" by the GDI and "Threshold 19" by the Scrin, in this area. The tower is believed to be a relic from the Third Tiberium War but turns out to be the base of another Scrin invasion.

Squad

The most important feature of the game would have been that the player controlled squads of units, as opposed to a single member. The producer claimed that controlling the squads would be very easy, and that the squad members would automatically find cover, such as behind a walker's legs. Squads were intended to be deployed at the beginning of each level, with reinforcements being sent as members were killed. The known squads and units prior to cancellation were the rifleman squad, the missile team, the Titan Battle Walker and the Orca VTOL Assault Craft. The number of squads able to be controlled in the console version of the game was four, via the directional buttons on the controller.

Cancellation

On September 30, 2008, Kotaku reported that the game was canceled for not meeting standards. Kotaku reported Mariam Sughayer, EA spokesperson, saying "EA has suspended work on Tiberium effective immediately. The game was not on track to meet the high quality standards set by the team and by the EA Games Label. A lower quality game is not in the best interest of the consumers and would not succeed in this market."

I just played the new call of duty, I love that game. I wish we could mod that baby. I like how you can take cover in the rainbow six games, you can't do that call of duty but you are also fighting outdoors so... the game is addictive.
