Do any/many PPRuNer's out their play Quake 3 online?
If so it might by fun for someone to set up an online server game for PPRuNe users. I think it might be somewhat cathartic to run around Brimstone Abbey laying waste to 'favourite' posters with a plasma rifle...
As a first step we could just arrange to log onto one of the large commercial servers out there on a certain date and time using our PPRuNe usernames...
If everyone had a computer that could handle Far Cry or UT2004, I would go with those. Unfortunately not everyone has a powerful enough computer so something a little older may be better. Halo isn't bad either, but again it will bring many computers to their knees.
Falcon 4 is a good flight sim if you want to blow each other out of the sky. IL-2 Sturmovik is another great WWII sim.
I'm up for Quake 3 if that's what everyone else has. We could call it the PPRuNe Quake Bash.
chuckT - I'm almost finished the single and love it. It takes a littel while etting used to how smart the AI is though. At times it can be downright scary. I hope you have a fast system though, as it is very demanding.
I got Far Cry the other day - great game, but my poor old graphics card breaks out in a sweat just thinking about running the thing. A timely reminder that Half Life 2 and Doom 3 are out 'soon' and will also require a new card.
I don't have any of the Quakes or Unreal Tournaments - never really been my sort of thing, but I'd be up for some Medal of Honor (Honour - damn yankees!) or maybe one of the Half Life mods (Counterstrike?)
