Any longtime Rainbow Six fans around? It was such an amazing game back in the day on the PC. I absolutely loved planning out every step of each mission before the gameplay began. Then it became a console game, got dumbed down and almost destroyed completey. Just when I thought all hope was lost someone must have come to the sudden realization that they were killing one of the most storied franchises in gaming and the series returned to glory. While still a dumbed down console FPS, Rainbow Six Vegas and its sequel are great fucking games. Anybody?

I only became a fan of the Vegas series. Some of the best multiplayer experiences I've ever had are with both of those games. I can't wait to see what Ubisoft Montreal comes up with next for the series.

Ubi Montreal can do no wrong in my book. Ubi Shanghai on the other hand is a different story. Ugh.

Ubi Shanghai has some gold. I love their Splinter Cell games.

I haven't played anything but shit from Ubi Shanghai. Never played a Splinter Cell game. Stealth = cowardice. Going in guns blazing is for real men.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid rules!

Uhm...Stealth is much more tactical, ergo, require more use of your brain than brawn.

Tactical was the old Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon games. I'm just not into being stealthy.

I think PC games are just so much more superior to console games. Too bad it's dying a slow, painful death.

Combat flight sims on the PC were my favorite. Give me a Gunship 2000 or Jane's Longbow over anything else. Freespace 2 was a stellar game as well. I really miss these games in their original incarnations.

Stealth is still tactical. Just a different kind of tactic. Saying stealth = cowardice is all kinds of ridiculous.

Can't stand shooters on PC. Way too easy to get head shots.
