Anyone still playing?
« on: June 02, 2012, 09:44:26 AM »
I couldn't help but to notice that this board's been dormant for a couple of months now...That leads me to ask, does anyone still have time or make time for gaming? I personally have very little time for it anymore. A few months back, I put the XBOX in my son's play room and sold all of my "grown up games." I do regret it a little but mostly because I traded them for a lawn mower that turned out be a lemon instead of for cash! haha. Also because I wouldn't mind a little HALO Reach or Black Ops every now and again... However, I do still play quite a bit of:
Lego Indiana Jones (360)
Kung Fu Panda (360)
Cabella's Big Game Hunter (360)
Super Mario Bros 1 & 3 (NES)
Super Mario Bros (SNES)
Lego Indiana Jones 2 (DS)
Super Mario World (DS)

I still play pretty much every night.  I've mostly been into single player games lately.  I'm actually kind of sick of paying $60 for games that seem to only be built for multiplayer.  I refuse to do that anymore.  I am only getting games that are either cheap or have a lot of playing time available.

I have pretty much quit playing xbox.   The last couple of months I just used it for netflix and I just canceled my service for that.   Money is very tight here right now.

So the recurring theme here, including my own, is that times are tough and entertainment budgets are suffering! I totally understand I just hope we all make it through these tough times and back to the land of milk, honey, and pre-ordering video games because "it looks like it might be cool." LOL

I agree. I do miss playing with the guys. We had so much fun back in the day.

I'm still signed up, though I haven't been playing much due to being busy with the family.

I also got sick of paying full price for games that ended up being a disappointment or had limited replay value.  Signed up for Gamefly, though...love it so far.  Haven't had much luck getting good games in, but I figure I've saved a few hundred.

Don't mind paying for good games, just haven't been wowed in awhile (Mass Effect 3 was awesome, though).

I play when I can.  Work nights and watch the kids during the days, but when I do play (usually Thursday/Friday afternoon and Thursday - Saturday nights) I enjoy the adult games.

My son has been asking me to play Kung Fu Panda for him  :LMAO: he just likes to watch, but its only happened maybe 2 times total.  I also have Lego Indiana Jones but that hasn't been played in a while.

My "adult" games include, Black Ops, Mass Effect 3 and Battlefield 3.  A little Halo mixed in there every once in a while.
