    my boyfriend and i have a 360 and a wii, multitudes of older systems, and an arcade machine. yea. he bought one. He can put CvS2 and GGX in it.

    have you played Gears of War, BioHazard? I think it's an absolute must for any 360 owner. i love it.

    yeah GoW is a great game, have you played Bioshock, amazing game and has a kind of scientific feel like half-life. Its about a 1950 utopia built under sea, where only scientists and artists are welcome with complete disregard to censorship or morals.

    Yea, we started playing it - I still like GoW better, though. Plus, Bioshock made me seasick, haha. We have a projector and a giant 102" screen that we play on, and it was dark in the room otherwise, and with all the jumping and swerving and spinning...yea, my stomach didn't agree.

    used to play alot, the old gameboy (pokemon), playstation (final fantasy 7), my mates nintendo 64 (zelda, goldeneye ) and of course a bit of pc.

    then i stoped. not sure why, perhaps i never buy new games , but leave it to my younger bro. perhaps its cause im away from home with no tv (big one methinks), time?

    i do emulate some of the old classics though, of course i would not condone such actions. 8)

    Exactly the same here.

    I'm a fanatical videogamer.

    I failed my last trigonometry test. (Actually last two) because instead of studying I went home and played Resident Evil 4/The Suffering.

    Besides, I don't like math.

    its hard to find time for everything.

    4 things in my life i have time for

    1. Food
    2. Sleep
    3. social events in a bar of sorts (or near an offie)
    4. Studying Chemistry and writing all those reports in Biochemistry,Pharmacology and Molecular genitics .

    Not always in that order.

    One game, from the not so distant past i love playing was grand theft auto vice city and san andreas.

    Red faction if i remember was a kick ass game.

    Muliplayer games also really tickle my competitive instinct.

    Oh and CTR. Any one tell me what CTR is? (abbreviation)

    *drools*

    And the next Gears of War. . . orgasm in box. . .

    (Though I'd much rather own a PS3 than Xbox 360, which is why I play GoW at a friend's house.)

    your better off with Mario Kart

    I cant understand that logic, my cousin does the same thing, the only exclusive game thats worth something for the PS3, in my opinion, is MGS4

    I agree, there's not enough good games for the PS3 to justify buying one right now, especially for the price it's at. Besides, with time it will get more games AND the price will go down.

    Anybody got the Orange Box? I watched a friend play through Portal and I thought it was pretty cool. I especially liked the ending, haha.

    i'd love to get a 360 and a Wii. I just have throwbacks at the moment. NES, SNES, and a Sega. I get to play my friend's gamecube from time to time which makes my day. Eventually I'll get with the times.

    I'm gaming on a very old IBM Thinkpad, so I'm going through the classics.

    Right now, I'm playing Doom, Morrowind, and Blood Omen. I have a ton of consoles from PS2 to Dreamcast to below (chronologically speaking), but no space for a television.

    I used to play a lot of video games in HS and college. I think I was a 4-6hr per day counter-strike Junkie back then. Now I have very little time for games with work and my other hobbies

    I have a Wii and a 360. I have about 50 games for my 360 and maybe 15 for my Wii. Right now I'm currently playing COD4 along with most of the rest of the known world.

    Video games........yawn....

    Can't get to grips with the controls....always die within the first minute....my son thinks that's hilarious!......every now and again he whittles me to have a go just so he can laugh at his mum and feel superior, so the only reason i play is to gratify him!

    He's got PS2, Wii and computer (he's addicted to WoW and Torn City!!)

    Now he wants a PS3 and 360.

    Kids are never satisfied

    My Wife is a Hardcore Gamer and plays lots of GoW.

    I'm more casual and like to play wii games, and I like GTA IV whenever my wife lets me on the XboX, which is not often, because she is ALWAYS on it

    I consider myself to be a gamer, but lately (since I cancelled my WoW account) I've not bothered to do too much gaming. All I do now is play an MMORPG online called "Darkthrone." I actually find it better than WoW for one simple reason. You never reach a point in which you can't get better

    I love the smell of a shattered misconception in the morning.

    Anyhow, I'm much more of a console gamer than a PC gamer, the only PC game I truly love is Starcraft. And since they're taking their sweet time with the second one, It'll prolly be a while until I'm back into it. I'm also a big fan of Guitar Hero and Rock Band - now if only our 360 wasn't broken! Oh well. Twilight Princess distracts us enough for now.

    I have. And deleted it soon afterwards. Since I am a fan of the original MTW, and the second installment is just not doing it for me.

    I prefer the Europa Universalis series more than Total War, although Total War is a lot less time consuming.
