    I still have Nintendo that I got for Christmas in 1987. Never upgraded from that. I figure the next gaming console I buy will be when my 3 yr old son gets older and wants the latest and greatest system on the market.

    But my buddy always has the newest thing and I have to say that the Madden football games are my fave.
    He who forgets will be destined to remember.

    Do you like video games?

    Yes. I have all three systems with the XBOX 360 consuming most of my play time.

    Mostly sports (NHL, MLB, NCAA, Madden, etc.) and action/shooter types. I hate playing online though so I tend to focus on single player.

    Currently trying to play:

    NCAA 11
    Blur
    Split/Second
    Red Dead Redemption

    Still need to go back one day and finish:

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2
    Splinter Cell: Conviction
    Final Fantasy 13
    Heavy Rain
    Darksiders
    Mass Effect 1 & 2
    Dragon Age

    I have at least 75 games right now and have probably beaten like 10 of them. If that. Pretty sad.

    I only play it when I'm on work or uni holidays. But I like Fifa, NBA, COD and I finished Red dead redemption the other day. That was pretty good.

    XBox 360 is wwhat I currently have.


    Fallout 3 is the best game ever IMO.... I suspect the upcoming Fallout: New Vegas is going to be even better.

    NCAA Football games are great as are FIFA. NHLs have started to improve the last few years. Maddens are stale IMO.

    little arcadey games I like are Geometry Wars and Peggle.

    yup & yup.

    fallout 3 consumed my life. solid f'ing game. i fear what new vegas will do to me.

    it's really the only single player game i'll get into though. all about online play with bad company 2, modern warfare, NHL, FIFA. single players suck you in so much. online play, you can jump on and off at your leisure.

    oh god. . . NHL 04.

    What a great game. I forgot that one..

    A few more come to mind

    Mortal Kombat 3
    Super Mario 3
    Mario Kart 64
    Golden Eye
    NFL Blitz
    Sonic The Hedgehog
    Lufia
    Final Fantasy 7

    Of course the game I've played with my best friend for 6 months straight: Halo: Combat Evolved. No game for the Xbox will top that one for me. So many memories for that game. The many drunken 1p vs 2p games. Rocket Launchers vs Sniper. After you beat the game on Legendary you can't go back on beat it at Easy because you'd be bored as fuck

    These are the games I have been enjoying for the last few months.

    NCAA Football 11 - Great game, plus you can download full rosters. Much better then the last Madden.

    Tiger Woods 11 - I think this is the best Tiger ever and the focus meter adds tons of strategy.

    Battlefield 2 - Decent single player but I love the multiplayer (although I just got the game).-

    I still need to finish Dragons Age, Mass Effect 2, Final Fantasy 13, and the last two Mario games. Of course, everything gets put on hold the day NHL 11 comes out.
