My mind wanders. So, I got to thinking about this joke-list I seen, while reading the posts in Soccy's T-shirt-topic. I ended up wondering about how different games might be viewed as the perfect date, or not, based on whatever stereotypes we could imagine about them. Anyway, taking much from the joke-list I mentioned, here's what I came up with:

Stereotype #1 "SW: Galactic Battlegrounds" : Glasses, sensible shirt, nerd.

Stereotype #2 "Age of Empires 3": Designer Clothes, short hair w gel, conceited.

Stereotype #3 "Age of Mythology": Long hair, almost looks good but something is slightly off.

Stereotype #4 "Age of Wonders 2": Girl

Stereotype #5 "Age of Kings": Sexy, stupid T-shirt, drunk.

I'd like to see what others can come up with. So please, use your imagination to describe a specific game or genre using similar stereotypes. Try to limit the descriptions to three or four specifications. Also, you can just edit the list in the post to your liking.

"What Ana said. Use sugar and the whip." - aka the Pilot

Let's see... I visit both heavens, so my personality should be an aggregate of those two stereotypes...

Medium-length/long hair (usually styled with wax), currently wearing a t-shirt with graphics depicting Barack Obama being attacked by a John McCain-robot-mecha-droid with laser eyes. This combined with a pair of Nike sneakers, the colors of which I chose myself. I am not drunk, but plan to attend a party this time tomorrow, which is likely to involve alcohol in moderate amounts. I also make huge over-hyped scenarios that never get finished.

It works!

Working, to cut it short. Internship at an architecture office.

In fact I finished work today. School starts on Monday, though, so there's not much time for rest.

Heya Oliver! We are only supposed to stereotype the games, and not the gamers. I think I might have blurred that line with mine though? Oh well, if the shoe fits...

Ha, I confused 'games' with 'gamers' in the topic post. That's what you get when you don't pay attention.

And I suppose you have a better game?
clearly this is an impossible question to answer with anything other then 'no' and Quaazi would be silly to even attempt.
First three BF games, AoE and Aok, anything from C&C (including the FPS Renegade), Mount and Blade, Frets On Fire, anything from Sid Meier, NWN, Sins of a solar empire, Unreal Tournament, Spore (the creature creator so far ), Mass Effect, and Minesweeper. That's how sucky and overrated CoD4 is.

You crack me up sometimes.

But that's ok, I can respect your wrong opinion.

To be honest, almost anything from BF pwns CoD4. After BF2 and BF 2142, CoD4 is like an updated, less balanced, copy. BF 2 balanced the grenade launcher fairly quickly, for instance, but CoD4 still has to do so.

Oh, and CoD4 is completely wasted by Battlefield Bad Company.
Watch: First 4

Same pwnage with any of the "Age of" series and WiC.

I think it is you who is mistaken, Fattybryce.
