So does nobody else remember things like the ATARI VCS being largely referred to as 'VIDEO GAMES', with most PONG type stuff before that being mostly referred to as TV games? Or are these terms just unknown to younger gamers? Whether I've had a computer (Spectrum, PC) or a console, I have always ju...

Whether I've had a computer (Spectrum, PC) or a console, I have always just referred to gaming as "playing the computer"

I have got thousands of ROMS on my PC, but I found that I wasn't giving the games enough attention when playing via emulation. I would try a new game, and if I got killed a few times I would end up just picking another game from the list. Then I got sick and tired of the 360/PS3 and got my DC back o...

Only if your retro hobby involves collecting 500 scabby copies of FIFA 95 on the MD, or you have an interest in battling your way through 20 junkies, and pretending you are in a Zombie Movie

In the last few months I have owned three Xbox 360's and two PS3's I keep one for a month, get utterly bored with it, and end up trading it in for something else. But I've finally realised that the games on these new consoles simply don't interest me any more. I don't care if Gangsta Rap Racer 12 le...
