I'm very addicted to videogames, it's actually an inhibitor to my life and causes major mental problems for me. I added two games to my collection today, Red Dead Redemption and Valkyria Chronicles...

Well the problem is, will the help be succesfull? CoD is like the most played game in my region and nowadays even parents find it normal they act like that.

I would hope that the parents think that they're joking. I mean, I'm the type of person that would say that the whole "games corrupting minds" idea is for the most part ridiculous, but if I knew more than one person who acted like your dad's friend's son...I don't know if I'd be able to stand on that train of thought.

I am not too sure about the mind-corruption myself, but I don't really like war games, hardcore shooters, or most games rated M. Only M game I play is 999 for DS.

Retro stuff and platformers? I love 'em.

Deep Thoughts...
The people of the Pokémon world aren't too creative. They named Pokémon after what sound they make. If we were like them, a cow would be called a "moo".

I'm Reading...
Just finished a volume of Soul Eater, volume 14. At this point, it has become very different compared to the anime, and I kind of like it. Some of the characters have gotten a lot more fleshed out (specifically the meister team of Ox, Kilik, and Kim), and things are happening quite differently. An exciting read.

I'm Playing...
The iPod music game, Cytus. While I may not know very many of the songs, I really like its music, and the gameplay is easy to pick up yet takes quite a while to master. A friend has seen me play it and he says I make it look easy, but I am still having a fun and challenging time. Definitely worth the price.

How about HAPPY WARS?


That said, I actually like war games...the tactical kind anyway. So stuff like Warhawk? Hit me up. Call of Duty just seems mindless to me, even if it IS fun.

I agree, tactical war games are my type aswell, mostly strategy games (those are tactical too i guess).

I'm installing the game data and latest patch for Sleeping Dogs (PS3) now, I'm hoping this game will keep me busy for a few weeks at least, if not an entire month.

I do have a backlog of other games to play, but I just can't motivate myself to re-visit them.

Well, i am tactical from time to time, but then again i have moments where im just rushing and dying over and over again xD

Then again its different for each genre, since for a FPS, tactical is more like taking cover, aiming and what not, whereas with a strategy game you flank your opponent (which actually sounds the same, but in a strategy game you can decide how much people flank and in a FPS the AI is so stupid they dont flank xD)

Persona 4 is for PS2... Persona 4 Golden is for PSV.
PS3 will have Persona 5.
And even if someone played vanilla P4, P4G is a must

They're all "recent" games to me, since I haven't actually beaten any of the games in my backlog story wise yet.

(I don't count games that I've beaten story wise as part of the backlog)

Aside from Pokémon, I never keep old games. I usually just trade them into stores for credits, haha.

I only trade in games that are absolute garbage that I'll never wind up playing. When a game's beaten, it goes back on my game shelf. I enjoy having a game collection, and it's always nice to be able to go back and replay older games if I want to.

Watching youtube videos of older games I've owned makes me want to go back and play those games again.


In other news, Namco Bandai is changing their company game, and it's hilarious: http://playeressence.com/namco-banda...-bandai-namco/
