I know this has been discussed before but, all threads I've seen are from 2+ years ago. Its obvious, even though i was told otherwise, fast paced shooters are out such as call of duty. Which is strange cause i can get online i just can't get into a lobby. The sales rep told me i could play it it'll just lag. Even the installer told me its possible. Some threads I've read say they have no issues at all playing. How is my question..
Any list ever come about of what games CAN be played and I'm not talking pogo.com ? I'm talking PC or console, does that even matter? Does one use more? Will it handle minecraft? WiiU? Any info or examples of games would be appreciated.
i appreciate the link just wish there was 1 more updated. this is back in 2010... i still don't understand how SOME people are playing certain games with no issues and MANY of us CANT! Even if anyone who replies to this thread could list games they've tried. I hear both sides and don't get why. Or, WOW is playable and it takes up NOTHING or its A LOT and FAST. Im not a WOW player but, its not out of the question. Just looking for some updated help. thanks again Melissa.
Your welcome Misty, Wish I had a more updated one on hand Truthfully I think the majority of us have finally realized gaming through hughes is just not worth it. Although i have enjoyed a FEW online games with hughes, such as need for speed world, a tinge of grand theft auto, and a spec of facebook games here an there. Personally I perfer the offline games, as there is no lag and no data to lose lol. If I do come accross another posts though I'll be sure to keep you in mind!!
Thanks again. I appreciate that. Im an addict and going cold turkey is not becoming fun. I was on COD but its unplayable regardless of what the sales rep said.. jerk.. Ive recently started playing pogo.com again just for a game or 2 to play.
And your right, even if you CAN get on and play it, is it worth your data lol. Not much fun if you play for 10mins and now your out..
i keep Y! searching but a lot of answers are everywhere which i still don't understand. How it could kill data for you and not effect me. Any who, ill keep checking. Thanks again!
Mistyblades, In many cases, you will be "rejected" by a game server because of the high "ping" inherent in a sat connection. They simply don't want you to bog down their network. In the end, you just can't beat the speed of light
Thanks for your post and welcome to the community. As we don't have a list of games compatible for HughesNet available here, maybe posting in the forum that Melissa provided above might return you some good results. Keep us posted on your finding to share here with the community! (Thank you Melissa!)
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Already have done this and no ones even looked at it since i posted it. MOST of the post are between 2010 and 2013 theres 1 of 2014.. so i think I'm SOL... No list here probably answers my question then of is it possible. REALLY wish the sales rep hadn't said i could.
Christopher, Good reminder. I believe the sales rep mentioned that but, I'm new to this so thank you. Gwalk, Yeah, I'm getting the impression gaming is PRETTY MUCH out of the question. stupid ping... Thanks for your replies & knowledge!
