Default Re: Who here doesn't play video games?

I haven't even played a video games in at least a couple of years, let alone owned my own system. Last video game I ever owned and played regularly was like NBA Live '05 or '06 or something.

But I do play actual real life basketball daily.

I had more fun playing super Nintendo, Sega and even PlayStation and N64.

NBA Jam was fun, the new NB2Ks, not so much.

Super Mario was fun.

Mario Kart was the greatest game ever. After that everything was trash.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't think it is how real they are, it is how quickly you can pick up and play. Some video games now have large cinematic intros, then a tutorial, then cut scene, then 5 minutes of game play, then another cut scene... It is tedious and boring to go all through that to start playing a game.

Mario, you hit start, run straight into a goomba, restart, you kill him on the next try. You learn as you go and you are straight into the gameplay.

I mostly just stick to multiplayer these days, usually it is straight forward and quick. You learn quickly - this is fire, this is duck, movement is the same, done now lets play.

I think games are too real now to have fun. People take it serious now.

You can't take a 2d game, Earth Worm Jim serious, you just have fun.

Had halo 4 since it launched in november and it is still in the wrapper. My ps3 is also collecting dust. When the newer and even shinier toys come out I will hop right back on but for now I have nothing catching my interest.

What you got son? I got some sealed and some mint cib's that I collected. + AV Modded top loader too.

My SNES collection is however my favorite.

I have the entire NES/famicom library on my computer. Went and bought a Nintendo style controller that plugs into my computer, good to go.

I hear ya. But the games are exactly like the originals.

That being said. I do have interest in buying a NES with my top 20 favorite games. Same goes for the SNES.
