How long have you been making games for? What kind of games do you make?
I didn't start making real games until I got MMF2(And you could argue that they're not real games, because they aren't being coded with an actual language.), but I've been doing things like rom hacking, mapping for CSS/DODS, Morrowind modding, and other almost-game-things for many years.

Currently I'm making a 2D roguelike/rpg/simcity/thingydoodle. lol
Don't even have a name for it yet, but I'm a decent way into it, and have a lot of the plot/lore/etc. planned out.



As for your other question that I'm too lazy to bother quoting:
Most time in any one game would definitely be Counter Strike Source. I definitely have many thousands of hours (I'd guess over 5000, but no clue really) in that game, and even more if you count the mapping I've done for it.

@YungKnowledge
I never played the resident evil games so i cant say I have any idea why you would put so much time into it! haha. Playing games as a youngster was the best though. there was actually a challenge to finishing a game!

@Lightning my god, the only game Ive putten a decent amount of time on is 250 hours in Pokemon Ruby and
I dunno probaly 100 days in runescape from when I use to play it way back 4 years ago.

@Quil that is also a lot of hours.. :O I assume you were a fan of it yes?
Also have you thought of going into actually programming? Like learning a language that you can program in? I think that seems to be where you should start thinking of heading rather soon. Do you want to work in the video game industry?

Have you tried creating games before?

Whats the most time you've put into one game??

We did a month in a camp program I was in once. I do know Flash but I know its not the same thing.

So i'm a novice at it.

@ CarefulWetPaint - I studied Games Technology at University. It isn't as fun as it sounds, I loved the course but it is a lot of hard work. It was mainly to do with the programming side of the games, so yes, I have the knowledge to make games. I am currently touching up on my programming skills and learning new methods of how to do certain things I would like to try out in games, but I do make them yes.
I don't have anything published, but I should soon enough.

The most time I have put into a game? I have maxed out the clock on Pokemon Emerald! XD

What about P4 Arena?! It'll be like Street Fighter, but a thousand times more awesome! And I'm going to enjoy the likely familiarity to the BlazBlue series, considering Arc System Works is involved.

What is your longest in-game playing time:

Mine would have to be 400+ hours in Mario Kart 7. I used to play it non-stop, but have cut down to only weekends now. I'd like to consider myself pretty damn good now.

I work as an IT Technician currently, so that is fixing hardware, software, programming too but not games programming, small scripts and such.

Anyway, it would be considered indie games yes. I am just playing around with different methods really, much like The Unfinished Swan and such.

Ooooo, just thought of a thing for the first post. Go check it soon!

and it is 999.99

Wow. Surprised I never came across such an awesome club before today. Joining for sure! <3;

Username: Derozio
Current Console of Choice: PC. I don't own a console. :(
Favourite Game: Probably Devil May Cry 3. Portal 2, MGS 2 and Assassin's Creed 2 probably come very close to it as far as being my fave games goes. :D
Mario or Luigi? Either. Guess Mario over Luigi since I've been playing as him whenever I played any of those 2d platforming games. :P

Will post more later when I'm back from class. That is, almost after four hours from when this post is 'stuck' to this thread.

From what I can tell, because it doesn't even have a release date yet, you are in a white world and you need to throw ink around to find your way.
It just looks really fun! :D

Well yeah, you're right, Fabio. Seems like it:

Quote originally posted by by the official video uploader on Youtube:
Enter the surreal world of The Unfinished Swan and explore a mysterious, hidden kingdom. Your journey will be led by a runaway swan who guides you through strange levels filled with bizarre creatures. Discover the land through innovative new game mechanics such as splatting paint on a white surface to uncover your surroundings. Each level will bring new twists, challenges, and puzzles until you eventually come face-to-face with the eccentric King that built this realm.

Most fulfilling gaming experience?


Assassin's Creed 2. Yeah, hacking and slashing up demonic buttheads while being in control of a badass, half-human, half-demon hybird is fun, but it can't match the sense of fulfillment that I achieve by being a badass assassin and killing people stealthily while being so darn stylish. Plus, that game had a really engrossing storyline, awesome characters, nice voice cast and really good graphics to boot. The overall experience was just amazing. Even though the game was kinda easy, but yeah.

Your most crowning gaming achievement, online or offline.


Offline: That, to me, has to be this:

Spoiler:


Seriously, even getting till the last mission in 'Very Hard' mode in DMC3SE is no piece of cake. Doesn't bear that name for nothing, y'know. I'm proud of it, regardless of the fact that there are people (quite a lot, actually) who have beaten the game in the hardest difficulty (Dante Must Die: Where enemies take almost 15-20 hits before they go down and bosses are insanely powerful) and I'm still probably a newbie at this game even after playing it for such a long time. :D

Online: Naah, never played an online game.

Are any of you guys interested in making games yourself?


I definitely am. Wanna choose scripting in video games as my career. Not really all that knowledgeable about it since all I know right now is a bit of C++ and nothing else. But yeah, I'm ready to work really hard on it. As for ideas and coming up with original stuff, I do come up with 'em every once in a while. But I don't think I've ever thought of anything as different as the 'unfinished swan'. :O

Quote originally posted by QuilavaKing:
I've even gotten inspiration from the shape of some puddles left over after a shower once, and then built an entire game with plot/lore/etc all around it in the few seconds I was looking at it. I guess I just have a really overactive imagination though... once I see something that makes me think about some new game world, I imagine myself as being a character in that world, and start doing things, as if I were playing the game in my head. All of my game ideas (I have dozens at this point. lol) start like that. Always seems to start with thinking about the world, then putting myself in as the main character, and then building a plot for myself so I don't get bored in my little fantasy. lol
You, my friend, are quite awesome. <3;

So anyone here heard of or use RPG Maker?


Well, I've been thinking of using it to create an RPG too but...I guess I don't really know how. I'm sure I'll be able to learn it pretty fast but the fact that I don't really have a clear picture as far as the lore and the characters of the RPG are concerned doesn't help. So I've just put "Learning and Creating games using RPG maker and similar programs" on hold for now. :)

What is your longest in game playing time?


I don't really know. I think it has to be Pokemon with a few hundred hours in it. Apart from that, I guess Devil May Cry 3. 50+ hours on that. Mass Effect series and Deus Ex Human Revolution closely follow with almost 40 hours on 'em.

I haven't really used RPG maker, because I feel it is a bit cheap from what I want to do.

I have installed Visual Studio '10 and XNA onto my work machine, since I put a graphics card in it today so I can support duel screens and such. The last one fizzled and died so had to put up with one screen for a bit. So, I am going to be working on a couple of things. Won't be games now, more AI simulations I think. Going to try out some different methods and which might be the best for a couple of situations I have in mind.

Edit:

Oh and using C# for the moment, if anyone was that interested! XD

The most time I've ever spent in one game would have to be the PS1 game Harvest Moon: Back to Nature. For those of you who are not familiar with the Harvest Moon franchise, it's basically just a cute farming simulation game where you move to a town and start a farm, and live your life in the little village where your farm is located. So you grow crops and get livestock, all the while wooing a lady of your choice, getting married and having kids.

It sounds boring, but it's like The Sims in that while it sounds boring on paper, even the smallest achievements send you into fits of joy and before you know it the whole day is gone and you've spent nine hours playing repetitive days on a farm, utterly enthralled XD.

I think part of its charm is that it's just so charming and benign and it's light happy fun where you don't shoot anybody or thump seven kinds of crap out of each other . Anyway I got into the franchise when it was on SNES and I've bought every incarnation since, but the highlight was definitely the PS1 game. After that it all began to change too much, and I've really begun to dislike the newer games because they're becoming more and more removed from what the games are meant to be as they try to 'change up' the formula.

This was a major tl;dr but basically the moral of the story is I got the game on the first day of a school holiday, and I spent the entire two week vacation from like 7am to 6:30pm just glued to the TV screen. I didn't go out once in two weeks. SO ADDICTIVE. That has to be the most time I've ever spent on one game.

Well, of course all the Pokémon games, but except them, I liked a lot SSBB (and ironically I'm not really good at this game, but I don't mind, I love to play it nevertheless)
Mario or Luigi? Luigi ... I think it's a more interesting character than Mario.
