The time I bought an Amiga CD 32....

I bought a Xbox 360 with Kinect to play Dance Central (and Gears of War and Lost Odyssey but really for Dance Central). The game is great fun but the hassle of clearing space and the fact you basically had to wear gym clothes if you planned to play for a long period meant I didn't play all that much.

Why? When I exercise I don't wear any clothes. It's much better that way

Well, assuming you're in the privacy of your own home of course

When I was a reeeeally young child, my father told me that a car advertisement CD was a videogame, only "just like a movie". And I believed it.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

In the mid 2000s I fell in the PC enthusiast trap, burning money on parts that I didn't need. The worst was when I decided that I wanted a silent gaming PC.

I played Final Fantasy 13.

So, my parents hated taking us to any game stores. It would have to be by some act of God that we did ever go to one. One time we bought The Legend of Zelda Collection on Gamecube and we beat all the games in a couple of weeks so we wanted to trade it in and get Wind Waker. Remember, it was a miracle if we got to go to Gamestop even once every 6 months. So with my parents being very religious we told them we wanted to return the game because it had fairies and demons in the games, lol. Sure enough, the next day they took us up there to trade it in. Man, the stupid stuff you do as a kid.

I bought a one dollar slide, puzzle game from the US store because I had a like 2 dollars left on it after buying some region exclusive VR titles. Played the first puzzle and all the trophies instantly unlocked, I thought my console had broken, it's now a stain on my accounts trophy list that i widh I could delete, it makes me look like a trophy whore and I make it a point to stay at less tha 95 percent of games that are too easy to platinum, I only platinum games that I love and have somewhat of a difficulty to the platinum or are massively impressive like Detroit, GoW and bloodborne which among others are easy platinums but great fun regardless. Have that game on my trophy list has put me off plattibg games unless they are first party sony, giants.

I liked the E.T. game as a kid. Although it's not as bad as everyone says. Try playing Raiders of the Lost Ark for Atari 2600. Now that is a really sucky game.

When I was 8 or 10, I once got so angry while playing Pikmin 2 because I couldn't get pass a level without my Pikmin losing their flowers on their heads, that I grabbed the GameCube violently and smashed it against the floor. The machine's laser lens broke and I had to beg my parents to buy me another one, but it took a while.

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.
