My hubby is a big game player, and for a long time we only had the one tv. So, I got to watch a lot of games being played.

What sort of games do you like watching other people play?

I like story lines, with good atmospheric elements, things like Bioshock 1&2, Assassins Creed 1 (he hasn't played #2 yet). Not as big a fan of watching games like COD, but some of those are good.

Currently watching Singularity and just finished Dead to Rights Retribution.

anytime i would watch my brothers played games back in the day, i would love to watch games like GTA, or a scary game like Resident Evil 2, and even the occasional racer, it just depends, a lot of the time i spent watching my brothers play Halo 2 on Original Xbox waiting for them to get off so i can play lol

Heavy Rain for the PS3! :woop:

But honestly, even playing the game is like watching it! I suggest if you have a Playstation to get Heavy Rain. Both of you will have a blast.

I second that statement, I don't have a PS3 but my brother does, so i went and rented it one day. My god Heavy Rain was the most fun i've probably had on the PS3 right next to Uncharted 2.

I like watching pretty much any game, but Rez HD is a personal favorite, it's fun to watch and play.

I don't mind watching my friends play online - Halo, Gears, even CoD. Anything outside of that, I don't really want to watch.

EDIT: Actually, I don't mind watching my friends play either Rock Band or Guitar Hero. Mainly because I enjoy the music they would be playing and because I suck at the game something fierce. :(

I prefer watching the game genres I hate playing. Such as Sports, Fighting(Except SC4), and racing games. There might be a few others, but for the most part those.

I suggest Indigo Prophecy from the Xbox Orginals
Lost Odyssey and Final Fantasy XII for the RPG games that have great storyline/cut scenes
Bioshock, Alan Wake, and Dead Space for the action games.

Hell yes to all those i guess. FF7 is the only one which would be like meh? since its more exciting for the person just to play it, it can be pretty boring to watch. Indigo Prophecy is BOMB ASS! that's my favorite Original Xbox/PC game of 2004/2005 whenever it was released. Although i thought Dead Space lacked on scares, it can be pretty fun to watch people who don't like scary games play it lol.

That's actually 12, not 7. :p
But I think he meant XIII since XII was released on the PS2 and all the other games he mentioned are current gen titles.

I like to watch Multiplayer games. I like interesting storylines, but I have to be the one playing the game if I want to pay attention to the story.

There's a guy called BikdipOnABus who does videogame videos on youtube that I really enjoy. His best series was Super Mario Sunshine coinless, the only person on record to do that.

I don't like watching people play games, even if it is my mum or gf. I can't stand it. But when I do watch my gf or mum play they both usually get stuck so I end up playing instead.

I also remember back in the days when I had an N64 and my brothers were playing all kind of games that I enjoyed them playing, like RE2, Super Mario 64 and other stuff. I don't like to play western games so I some times watch my brother play RDR now also.

If I have to watch someone play it has to be Mass Effect. Great game even if I am stuck watching it.

Metal Gear Solid.
And to the guy who said Heavy Rain, I also agreed. That game is a truly masterpiece.

My little brother is very good at fps online. I like to watch him kick butt and hear peoples mics through the tv getting mad at a 12 year old owning :P

I'd say online games such as CoD, Halo etc, with someone decent playing, obliterating the other team. That's enjoyable to watch :D

My ex used to bug me to play the Mass Effects, Bioshocks, and Assassin's Creeds when we lived together so she could watch, with popcorn no less! She went out and bought them for me so she could watch, got totally dragged into the story and the atmosphere. :)

I find it difficult to be the watcher though, I get bored and go do something else.

When me and a few of my friends get together i can sit and watch them play Street fighter for hours. I also like to watch stuff like Halo 3, Call of duty, BF:BC gameplay videos but tbh ill watch anything related to gaming.

Would have to agree. I'd rather play. However, my girl friend, ((Also a gamer)), seemed to enjoy watching me play through Fallout 3. I got her a second box because I can't stand watching :D

That seems like a pretty sweet deal to me.
