    The only game i'm addicted to right now is Smackdown vs Raw 2007 for the PS2 besides that I don't really play games that much anymore.

    Exclamation Well...

    I don't really think that qualifies as being a serious gamer...however you are the first to reply to my post so thank you for your comments. Have you thought about purchasing a next gen console?

    What other games are you playing, JR from Dallas? Wait... wasn't that from an 80's TV show?

    I used to have a lot more time but as of now... i only play at work.

    But... the games that I normally play are:

    Splinter Cell Double Agent
    Call of Duty 2 and 3
    Hitman Code 47
    Dead Rising
    Smackdown vs Raw 2007
    and some occasional Test Drive: Offroad for the X-Box cause you can shoot chickens at cars


    But at home right now... I have an old NES hooked up to my TV with tecmo super bowl. It doesnt get any better than that

    Default Wow!

    Do you have the original Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt with that? That's a collectors item now.

    Have you played Gears of War? I am SERIOUSLY addicted to it. That and Oblivion.

    I've got a 360. I was playing Ghost Recon for a while. Lately I've been playing more Gears of War and Rainbow 6: Vegas. Both are really good.

    I have a PS3 and a Wii. I don't really play either of them that often cause I have no time. Wii is fun if you plan on having people over, its definatly more entertaining that way. If Im playing by myself, I enjoy the PS3.

    Unfortunatly, Neither of them have games Im too intrested in.

    I beat resistance Fall of man in a couple days, same with Need for Speed Carbon, and I have madden that I sometimes play online.

    Ill be happy when Halo 3 comes out, Metal Gear Solid 4, and all the fun Mario based Wii games, other than that, Gaming isn't what it used to be. Its mostly about flashy graphics, and not about good games...

    I concur there. The same is true with the Xbox360 as well. Most of the games available on the 360 are FPS and are variations on the same theme.. different environment, different bad guys, different weapons, same game. The games are still fun, but not all that original.

    I haven't played one, but from what I've read the Wii has, or will have, the most original games mostly due to the unique controller. Xbox360 has done some unique things with Live, but its still based primarily on the FPS-type game.

    Are you guys with the 360s on XBOX live? I've got a couple of friends from around the country that are smoke eaters on my friends list. If you want, post your gamertag and I'll shoot you a friend request.

    I'll be happy when the PS3 gets a decent price drop (paying for a blue ray player just isn't on my to do list at this moment )
    I still have my PS2 and I bought the wii once they get their virtual console stuff up and running should make things alot better.

    I've heard not to expect too much of a price drop, and if it does, it probably won't be til summer of 08.

    Either way, for anyone withoutthe system, I would say hold off until there are a lot of good games, unless you're totally loaded.

    One of my crew members has an X-Box 360 that he would bring to the station all the time.
    We started playing Call of Duty-2, and COD-3 just about every night in between calls. He ended up getting us all hooked!

    Just after Christmas, I bought another 360 so we can now link the two and up to eight of us can play together at the same time. We connect the systems to 2 overhead projectors and play it on "big screens".

    I never thought I'd ever be one to buy a video game system, but I have to admit, it is a lot of fun.

    I still got my PS2. I kinda wait till the PS2 games get down to $20 or so. Right now I'm playing the crap out of Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Black. Still love playing Killzone and the first Ghost Recon.

    PS3 will have to wait some time. Next major purchase for me will be a pistol.

    What do you think of COD-3? It's in my GF queue.. as is Pinata.
    So far Vegas is really good except for some of the gun physics. I hate getting taken out by a tango with a shotgun at 100m while my AR w/scope is all over the place.

    GOW online is great. Nothing like curb stomping your coworkers.

    I love COD 3. If you ever played battlefield 2 for PC its like that with smaller maps. Great fun and you can finally pick up and enemy grenade and throw it back at them.

    Viva Pinata is like the old Sim City games I so much loved but with Pinata's.

    GOW is great but RSV and COD3 are putting it on the back burner right now.
