Will probably get Xbox one eventually, but sticking with the 360 for now. Mostly play COD (I've played them all). Since COD4 and world at war the campaign has become relatively easy, and I play on veteran. I still go through the campaign, but its mostly about multiplayer. Though I do enjoy the special ops on modern warfare 2 and 3. Treyarch ruined the **** zombies by trying to do too much with it imo. Loved GRAW 1 & 2, rainbow six 1&2, and AC 1&2. Haven't played the last couple assassin's creeds. Picked up guitar hero 3 used and liked it so much I bought a few of the others. Was using that to fill the time between getting bored with black ops 2 and ghosts.

Unfortunately, I lost my Commodore64, ps on, game cube and Atari 2600 to a basement flood. Still have the ps2 but it was a very early version and won't play dual layer games. I do have a couple plug into the tv joystick games that have pacman, ma pacman, pole position, dig dug, galaxian, etc. Fun stuff.

Oh, and I have a Wii, but that really only gets used for watching Netflix.

    Currently playing: gta5,f1 2013,Batman arkham origins, Moto GP 2013.
    Next to play: Assassins Creed 4
    Consoles: ps3,360 (manly use ps3 tho)


    Will be getting a ps4 eventually, but not till about June/July next year as all the games I play are coming or are already out on ps3. So no rush for me just yet. Besides, my brother in law is a manager at EB Games and he told me, even if I pre-order a ps4/Xbox 1 now, I won't get it until April next year anyway, as the demand already is to high.

    There's one game that I love on Nintendo 64. Indiana Jones and the infernal machine. Now it doesn't have the best graphics or gameplay. But I absolutely loved that game and it was the reason that I bought an Xbox 360 because they were supposed to make the follow-up to that game and it was supposed to be only on Xbox. But something happened and they went up rolling it back to the PS2. And that was Indiana Jones and the staff king's. But I absolutely loved the infernal machine and you could play online too.

    There's plenty of good N64 games. I never played that one though. My favorites: Goldeneye 007, Perfect Dark, Mario 64, Mariokart 64, Super Smash Brothers 64 are among my favorites.

    Yea hard to beat golden eye for N64

    Mario Kart and Smash Bros have gotten better with every release IMO

    but golden eye was so much fun and i don't think i have had as much fun with a multiplayer first person shooter as i have with that game

    Yeah, MK64 is still a good one, but not as good as Wii or 7. But that's most likely since those are online and MK64 is not. I really loved the courses in MK64, but long term wise is miles behind without online play. Same is true for Smash. Melee expanded the rooster tremendously, and Brawl added in online play. The new one coming out will be even better now that they have online issues (hopefully) resolved.

    Nothing beats Goldeneye. I had so much fun with this one, nothing can match the multiplayer experiences. It was truly the best. I had all the spawn locations memorized, where the best weapon was, body armor, etc. It was awesome. I was unbeatable (even won a tournament at school).

    Oh absolutely. Goldeneye was classic. I played that thing to death. And perfect dark was awesome too.

    those 3 games for N64 were constantly being rotated in and out of my system.
    me and 2 of my friends were still all in school and living at home and we were all on unemployment for the winter.
    We would get up al get together at my friends place where my system was smoke some pot and play those games all day.
    was a lot of fun
    i still have my N64.

    i took all my controllers apart and switched the backs around so they are 2 coloured
    i did this so i would always know which ones were mine

    There cannot be discussion of N64 without these 4 words:

    Conker's bad fur day.

    On the original topic, own a 360, playing Diablo 3. I will buy an XB1, but not until the first line of them explode (red ring of death, anyone?) and they work all the bugs out, which will take at least a year.

    Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the best single-player game on N64. Such a wonderful experience.

    Definitely an epic game with an awesome story. However, I actually liked the story of Skyward Sword more than this and in my list of Zelda games I also think Skyward Sword is better than Ocarina of Time. To me Skyward Sword is the best 3D Zelda game (OOT #2), but overall, I still like the NES ones the most (Zelda 1 & 2).

    I got this game years later, and I actually didn't like it.

    Currently play PS3. Diablo 3 but beginning to lose interest after all the modded gear hacks. Played Diablo 2 LOD on pc for years. Met my bf on there too lol. Other than that, I like games with female main characters. Tomb Raider, Bloodrayne, Alice, RE, Bioshock, Infamous...stuff like that. I like LBP just for the creativity and customization. Enjoyed COD zombies in WaW but not a big fan now.
    History with gaming is to Super Nintendo and up (Sega-all PS). Never really owned one growing up, just played my bros n whatever games they played except the sports games.What can I say, I liked my barbies!
    Hoping to get the PS4 some time next year :) If anyone interested in D3'in hack free add me! :wink:

    Yup, have to agree. Even after completing the game I would still power it up to go do some horseback archery or try and get that monster fish from the bottom of the pond.

    Besides Zelda, Goldeneye and Mario Golf were me faves :)

    Does anyone have any old game systems like from when they were a kid that they still play. ?

    I have managed to keep my Atari 7800 from when I was like eight or nine years old. I still have a Coleco vision but I don't have the adapter for it.
    There's a place in Ohio that I found online that still sells Atari games and accessories.

    Have? Definitely. Play? Not much unfortunately.

    NES I have - but sadly it's in a sealed box in my basement. One day it will be up and running when my man cave room is constructed. I do miss it...

    N64 is actually hooked up to the big screen. Occasionally I will load up Goldeneye 007 or DK64 to play, but it has been a few months since I last used it. Yes it is months, not years. I had gotten a wireless N64 controller and pumped me to play some games with it.

    Unfortunately the only NES games I play are on the Wii U/3DS virtual console. Lot more convenient to load them from the hard drive then hooking up a system to a new TV.

    I just saw today they have a new Atari console that has 78 original Atari games pre-loaded, and comes with two controllers that look just like the originals but are wireless. It's only $40!!! They also have one for sega genesis, which I think I'm getting for my kids for xmas. They are small so even old sega games are good for them, and they can stop breaking my 360 controllers, since one costs more than the whole dame sega/Atari systems.

    Do you remember where exactly you saw that deal for?
    Can you post a link if it was online?
