So what are Gamer Dads playing at the moment? I was recently quite heavily into Defiance for the PS3. I really liked the idea that the game could be updated adhoc, with content that was relevant to what was actually going on in real time, with the T.V. show. However, after being initially blown away with the sheer amount of weapons and their pretty effects, I realized it was not fun enough to overcome the repetitiveness and I also found the difficulty in the single player missions, very frustrating. I finally traded it yesterday and bought Skyrim again. Oh how i've missed it!
Ever since seeing the stick men on the spectrum as a kid on the original football manager i was hooked.
I have had amastrad 64, and played footballer of the year which was one the best ever games i have played, starting of as an amatur and working thro the leagues and winning domestic trophies and going on to represent and win the woorld cup was awesome for a 12 13 yrold lad. happy daze indeed.
had an atari st, psone got a ps two somewhere, but never the same as playing champ manager and then the football manager series, after the split from champ manager the team went to sega and develped the football manager series.
Currently playing FM12 as last year i didnt have the cash to get FM13, might treat myself this year and upgrade to the FM14
Blimey, it's been a while since I logged in. Life, it's been so very hectic!
I was feeling pretty jaded a while ago with video games and then GTA V came out and i'm hooked again What a game. Haven't got my head around the Online mode yet. I think I need more features to open up.
Not sure if i'll get a PS 4. Maybe when the price drops. Not interested at all in Xbox One. Wii U interests me more than anything else and for portable gaming, i'm giving serious consideration to a 2DS, as i'm not bothered about the 3D effects.
Hey, I have a big retro collection, probably 2000 games at the highest but since I found that eBay prices are quite mental i've sold off a few hundred games I don't really play. Pretty much everything I have was £1 from the car booter, so to see the odd game go for £30 or £40 has been great! My best sale has been Castlevania Symphony of the Night for the PS1 which I got for £2 from a charity shop and sold for £90!!!
I've been running a Raspberry Pi with emulators for six months now, I have the best Snes, megadrive, and PS1 games on it. A brilliant device for about £50 all in, highly recommended. The kids love playing on cartridge games though, and when I put a SNES in the lads bedroom it was a massive hit. Mario Kart and Bomberman see as much use as Skylanders on the PS3 in our house
BOOM.... Knew there would be a geek topic here somewhere!
So i have been PC gaming since 2005 with a little known game called Battlefield 2 and have played every battlefield game in the series... Including the shit ones.
But since i have been PC gaming, it has taught me to write programs and build computers and servers. I enjoy it all. My favourite pastime is scaring the crap out of hackers, script kiddies or just pest spammers. Its amazing what you can achieve with just an IP address.
I have made many friends playing PC games of which i have met at least half and now a few are really close "pint down the pub" friends and as you have on here, they have helped me through tough times.
BTW just in advance, because it always happens. I care not for flame wars. I prefer PC that is all. (just to nip it now just in case someone wanted to start "that" argument) haha.
Hi Chimp, sound like you know your stuff! Yeah, I can't stand flame wars either. All they do is prove how ignorant some people can be. I have always had a wide collection of consoles and still own a fair few.
Saying that though, I'm giving very serious thought into buying a modest graphics card and getting Elite Dangerous. Oh yes... I could well be returning to PC gaming with that game!
