    So, yeh. Gaming of all sorts.

    Personally, I can't afford a lot of 'video-gaming' supplies, but...I can't afford lots in general.

    That doesn't stop me from buying a lot of stuff - mostly older video-games (that are just as expensive but make me all kid-like, again...)
    Your X-Box. Wii, or the less-impressive PS3. Even PC/MMOs are their own form of addiction, and can be cheaper. Can be.
    I'm rekindling an old love for my N64, as of now.

    OR~, and this is my latest obsession - Tabletop Gaming (RPGs). This varies from Dungeons & Dragons - which I fully admit to spending every spare penny on, lately...and, am currently setting up a group with some friends. Our biggest problem is finding a GM. >_<
    War-Hammer, Axis&Allies, any other system...I'm obsessing over them all.

    So, this could be any kind of gaming. System-gaming; RPGs/Table-top, or Historical; even LARPing...Even text-based RPs through the internet can count, if you're being technical.
    What do you prefer, and how much time/money do you waste on it? Favorites? etc.

    And if anyone does do table-top gaming, expect love.

    I thought the PS3 was a bit of a letdown, especially for the huge wait and big fuss over the coming-release. Somebody got killed over one, in the begining.
    And now, there's hardly any talk of it. In my mind, the only real improvement from the PS2 was the graphics. :(

    I'm really really boring and only use the PC for gaming, unless you count a DS or Gameboy, which I don't, however much I love them. :shifty We've got a Wii but I never really got into it as such, and I don't like our PS3 mainly because I hate all controller-type things. We don't get along. I'll play most things, bar the dreaded racing game. I've never tried table top gaming but it seems interesting :/ I just don't have any friends who'd be into it.

    Computer gaming isn't boring. The fact that most of it is online makes it pretty awesome, and I think that a lot of the bigger PC releases, of all sort, were made with more choice and direction than a lot of other games - they were made for a computers with lots of space, and capabilities. Usually specifically for computers FOR that reason.

    It's hard to find people willing to try out TTG/TCG. Even my more 'nerdier' friends seem to think it's beneath them to 'lower themselves' to something like D&D. Makes no sense.

    I know what you mean, it's not boring but other people seem to see it as somewhat old fashioned, god knows why. >: I'm perfectly happy with my gaming PC though. Personal preference, I just don't like (most) consoles. :XD

    I used to know a few people who played tabletop games, but I never got involved because I have the attention span of a gnat and I'd probably mess it up somehow. It sounded pretty fun. Ahaha, quite a few people I know, even the really geeky ones, seem to see it as like, the nerdiest of all nerdy things ever. Even worse than compulsive WoW-ing. I don't get it.

    Well, we got our PS3 quite a while after the release, so I missed all the fuss. We got a Wii while all the fuss was going on Dance

    Gah, I want the Sims 3 for PC, but my dad won't get it me cos I have the Sims 2 and all the expansion packs for it. Disgust

    Guitar Hero! :cheese: Yes, please. And I don't need no fancy PS3 or Wii (though my sister has the latter)--I love my tiny, black PS2.

    I love my little Gamecube. :hand: And the Playstation, and the Mega Drive, and Nintendo 64...
    I also have a Wii.
    But I like old retro gaming systems.
    NES ftw. 8)

    I used to be a hardcore gamer.

    Always playing Banjo & Kazooie, Zelda: Majora's Mask/Ocarina of Time, Donkey Kong, Perfect Dark, Pokemon Snap! on my Nintendo 64. As I got older, I started playing Dead to Rights, Kingdom Hearts, Shadow Hearts and Rock Band.

    As for computer games, Zoo Tycoon, this amusement park game and Insanitarium were what I played. Starcraft, too.

    I have an Xbox 360 and I don't really have that many games for it, because I usually spend my money on CD's. But I love playing Guitar Hero. ::yah

    And the game Left 4 Dead is amazing too. Nothing like blowing the heads off some zombies as a way to release stress. I used to play Diablo 2 on the computer a lot too.

    I miss the N64 and Super Nintendo. I grew up with Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Banjo Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64. Those were my favorites growing up.

    My family have had pretty much every console going except any Xboxes or retro Nintendo.

    I used to play video games a lot more than I do now. I used to sit all day playing my gameboy colour or PS1 with my brother. Nowadays, not so much. I have a DS and play it when I'm uber bored, and I play the Wii when the rest of the family is playing, but that's about it.

    And my brother is definately impressed with his PS3. He got it the day of release and has barely been off it since.

    I love my nintendo 64 In Love
    I've had it since I was 5 :tehe:
    Mario Kart never gets old.

    At home we (me & my brothers) have got;
    Nintendo 64
    Gameboy Color
    Gameboy Advance
    GameCube
    Playstation
    Playstation 2
    Nintendo DS
    Wii
    Xbox 360

    And I think my little brother got a PS3 for his birthday now, though I'm not sure since I haven't seen/talked to him in a while.

    We like games, okay? :XD
    And no, we don't throw them away/sell them even if they're old.

    Well I used to play a lot more. I mean. It's not like I used to bail school to go out with friends to play dota or pretend to be sick so I can stay home and finish up some side quests in whatevertherpg. And I so totally didn't devote my time and attention to leveling a 99 barbarian in Diablo2, because that would be just silly.

    Oh and FRP games? D&D? Dear God. If you can find a good Game Master - it's ridiculously interesting and time consuming. Can you imagine actively listening to a guy talking about everything from economy to every little detail about NPCs, like scars and height, and everything in between? And listening to him for like 4 hours before you even start playing, just because he makes everything so interesting and awesome that you get brain spasms if your everyday inner voice doesn't sound like him the day after the session? Good GM is such a rare find. But yeah. I did none of those things, no sir not me.
    :hand: I care about my education OKE? And so should you children! :XD

    I worked at a comic-book/gaming shop for a while. We had our own Angry-GM that came in once a week or so. I think I know what you're talking about, and I didn't even have to play with them.

    I really wish I could afford a Wii, even if I don't want it for the games on the Wii, but the older game-systems that it'll play for. An X-Box 360 just looks...awesome.
    And as far as PC gaming goes, for the most part, I'm not allowed to go near MMOs. It's a family rule after the late 90's/turn of the millennium. -cough-
    Don't ask.

    ^. I had that game when I was younger, and bought it again about three months ago. It's one of the classics - I think of N64, and it's one of the games my mind first goes to.

    Along with the Zelda releases, Poke'mon, and Perfect Dark.
