Mass Effect Legendary edition. Got a voucher for Xmas and a recent price drop to £30, so thought that was a very reasonable way to spend a tenner!

Madden games are the reason I got into NFL in the first place.
yes me too! I didn't know what the hell was going on when I first played them, but it prompted me to start watching the game on TV (there used to be a Channel 4 program on Saturday mornings with Gary Imlach) and still follow the sport to this day!

Yeah that's very similar to me right down to Channel 4! My life now pretty much revolves around listening to the Around the NFL podcast, watching NFL, checking my fantasy team news etc.

Had a great Madden 20 franchise running with my mates during the original lockdown too, the 3 of us made it to 8 seasons I think despite having 8 minute qtrs so games took about an hour roughly.

Wow that is some commitment! Must have been great to play with people you get along with too, I just kept having people drop out of online games while I was playing and stuff like that so soon gave up on it.

I quite often watch the NFL show on BBC these days (they have some great hosts) but sadly my better half isn't too enamoured with the sport so I don't get to watch as many games on a Sunday evening as I would like!

Yeah it kept me sane! We all went teams in the NFC North so we had at least 4 games a season v another player, and then usually had a game in the playoffs. Usually we'd stream the player v player too so the 3rd people could watch.

Serious Sam 4 on PS5. Doesn't run as well as I'd hoped but plays OK(ish). Taking a long break from buying games now.

Various post-Xmas purchases.

Arcade Spirits (Switch AND PS4)- £8 on Switch used £6 on PS4 Brand New. Watched the game on a Let's Play and enjoyed it enough.
Titainfall (XBONE, £2)
Battlefield Hardline (XBONE, £3)
Blood Stone 007 (360, £4)
007 Legends (360, £5)- And thats all the Bonds on 360.
Too Human (360 £1)- Remember the Gamecube coverage and the fact it had to be recalled over a lawsuit makes me think it could spike in value someday...even not, a quid is nothing. :lol:
Games of Thrones Telltale (360 £4)- Mostly as an achievement thing, never watched an episode.
More Halo movies on blu ray (Legends in a steelbook and Nightfall)
3DS FC= 0301-9774-9044

Grandstand Scramble- Currently non working
A SNES Pachinko game- Can't remember its exact name but it was quite long
Multiple tables for Zaccaria Pinball- ended up somewhat addicted to this, highlights being the Spooky remake complete with Dodgy Voice acting and the EM tables as it's nice to play simpler tables.
Watching you sleep since 1990

Technically free as when on the way to the job centre I found a fiver, nobody about so I went to the charity shop across the road and said "Keep the change"
They also had a load of horror DVDs, only one of note was Braindead, I already have it

Yoshi crafted something on switch for a quid. Work was having a clear out and anything not on the system was going for a quid. Also got Godfall, probably gift that to someone.

Well wouldn't really call this a console but gaming none the less I bought a dead IBM T22 ThinkPad from ebay just for the purpose of playing some old Dos games, I've tracked the problem down to a faulty IC on the motherboard so waiting for that to come through the post and solder in, then I should be good to go the laptop is in excellent condition too, I also bought some complete big box pc games I used to own years ago, SimCity 2000, Virtual Pool 1 and 2, Lemmings 95, Doom, Doom 2, Duke Nukem, Quake II, Dune, Heimdall, Alone in thw dark oh and a copy of good old Windows 95 to play them with, I'm going though a bit of retro pc phase at the moment.
