It's destroying my life. Completely. :(
so much. i need my yearly fix of FM!
I have heroically led Argyle to top of the Championship, but it's only chrimbo so plenty to play for...
I'm meant to be starting a job on Monday... I hope I make it. It's even more addictive than the football trivia thread.
i was always a championship manager addict, but last year's football manager just didn't get me hooked in the slightest.
is there actually anything different with the new one or are the players and teams just updated?
It's a lot quicker, there is more media stuff which I love, like each player has their own personality.
And there's plenty of other little things which make it so much better.
"star midfielder paul bolland thinks you're a cunt"
"star centre back Rob Jones is injured, do you wish to give him an injection so he can play the next game but will be out for longer or do you want to send him to the physio?"
the appeal of football manager games...
In my first season at Newcastle I managed to do even worse than Souness and finish 14th. I did reach the FA Cup Final and UEFA Cup quarter finals though. Now it's that horrible boring preseason bit which has been the worst bit of every CM/FM game.
called Pirates. It involves being a Pirate. Fighting other pirates at sea, getting promotions, shmoozing laydeez, fighting in taverns. I dream about it at night if I play it too much
or are you joking? because if that's real i want it.
I've called myself Gingerbeard and am currently pillaging around in the 1600's
i've just ordered myself that.
DiS: Bringing people to pirates; computer games.
Seriously though, I literally have to force myself into bed at 3.30am these days following FM2006 sessions :(
I still think about it in bed as well, meaning I get even less sleep and if it's not that I'll be thinking about uni.
Sports Interactive: helping smiggs fail academically since 1996 :(
There's only a few games that have done this to me:
Transport Tycoon (and still does today)
Championship Manager 2 (Amiga)
...and now this.
I used to be obsessed with Transport Tycoon as well as Civ 1 and 2.
Anyone else play a game called Frontier? That like sucked months of my life.
i want to play that now! when i was about ten, my ambition was to own my own transport company. i wanted to be the next dick denby.
@tom - Yeah, Frontier: Elite 2 ate a lot of my life
@everyone - www.openttd.org / www.tt-forums.net
You won't find me, my username is different. YOU WILL NEVER OUT ME AS A NERD.
My bro who's also a TT nerd posts on those forums.
He's like downloaded heavy modded versions of the game and everything!
I always prefered X-Com games...
Yeah, I help to code those... Eeek.
lost about 3 months of my life to Civ II/III.
Have you seen Civ4?
I'm not really sure what I think. It's moving away from the turn-based nature of things and I'm not so hot on it.
I'll give it a whirl for sure though.
if wasn't cm/fm or civ, pro evo took over my entire flat's social life, that was scary there aren't many students who will turn down a night out for computer games but my flatmates managed it!
It's great if you get the swing of it.
Am i the only one who finds computer games a tad boring?
computer RPG obviously...
i stopped buying LMA manager cos i had the same problem.
i remember a mod of Pro Evo or some other PC football game that a friend made called Steve Wonder Pro Football. He had basically configured it to a permanetly black screen, but you could actually still play it.
computer games I've ever really been able to get into are sports-based ones.
the obvious question is: who's good to buy on this version
guarin still seems good, and mokoena is great. anyone else?
Depends where you're starting.
If (like me) you like to start at the bottom and work up, prise Leberl away from Dagenham & Redbridge. Amazing defensive midfielder that's helping me take Aldershot to the top!
as of yet. But Jordan accepted all offers for my best players as Palace and therefore sold the likes of Johnson so i have no one. Cunt
This is probably for the best.
CM01/02 ate my life.
On the plus side, did manage TN Solutions to UEFA cup glory. Took forever.
