Only PC game I still play is CM0102 :lol:

I do play the PS3 when I get chance though, which isn't often as the wife always wants the TV and wont allow me to plug it in to the other TV :whistle:

Hi,

I am a serious PC Gamer - I own something like 120 games.

At the moment i am heavily into Starcraft 2:Hots, Diablo 3 and Civ 5.

Used to play the COD - way too much, but every now and again i have a round of two.

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!

My son has just spent the last 30 minutes telling me how fantastic the new Xbox is going to be and that it is absolutely something that he won't be able to live without

Anyone who actually speaks English care to tell me why it is so good?

i am a footie manager addict.

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

Hi all, gamer dad right here.

I have a ps3, i have owned every console released except for the Wii U.

I have had my PS4 preordered since June and am looking forward to another 5 weeks 2 days until i can go and (geekily) get into line at 10.30 at night to go and pick my lovely shiny console up.

I go to Eurogamer in london Earls Court every year, and this year had chance to play the new COD and Battlefield, as well as Killzone Shadowfall among other games.

Hope to get a few new names on my PSN account for the PS4 release!

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 :lol: 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.

Cheers,

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!
