Question How often do you play your game system?

What game system do you have and how often do you play?

I currently have a Playstation 2, Nintendo Wii, & NES system. I rarely play them, but want to get back into them so I'm not letting them waste away.
I'd really like to get a PS3 but just think it won't get played enough to justify the cause.

Just curious to see how often you still play.

You're rarely playing them because the games aren't as fun anymore unless you want a nostalgic feeling.
Seriously, get a x360 or PS3 and you'll be having some fun.

What's sad is I still have brand new games unopened, I just never messed with them.

What are some good games for PS3 or X360?

What kind of games do you go for?
Platformer, racing, rpg, shooter, puzzle?

I'm on my 360 an hour or two a day. Definitely helps save money rather going out.

I need to back off though as I need to study ><

My PS3 gets worked out for a good 10 hours a week. Haven't played a game on it since April 2008. It does a killer job streaming movies and playing Bluray flicks though.

I have a PS3 and play games on it less than once a month. I'll bust it out at random and maybe play a few hours over a day or two, and then forget about it for a while. I've had the thing for a couple of years, and have still never played online with it at all. Heck, I still have a wireless headset unused in the original packaging. I use it all the time for Bluray movies, though.

I have two PS2s in my truck, and two in my house, but hardly ever use them for games, either.

There is almost always something on TV that I'd rather watch, or I am out doing something else.

Lately i've spent more time modding other people's Wii's and burning games than playing my own. Mine get used more for backing up games than anything else.

Yes, my spelling and grammar are horrendous. Thank you for pointing it out, you have a firm grasp of the obvious. Have you ever thought of making this a career choice? You might even reach the prestigious rank of Captain Obvious.

PS2, PS3, Wii and 360. The wii gets played every once and a while, especially when company is over. The PS3 and 360 are played by me and I got through spurts of playing them for 4 hours a day to maybe once every 2 weeks. The PS2 (original BIG PS2) just got moved into my boys room with their new TV and will be played daily Im sure.

Honestly lately there havent been THAT many good games come out that appeal to me. The last game I bought was prototype for PS3 and it is decent but not good enough to where I cant put it down. I did just buy Final Fantasy 7 from PSN and was playing that for about 4 hours a day till a couple weeks ago.

We are remodeling the living room and kids rooms so all my systems are in a box in the garage. Im sure after the 122" projection setup is up and running later this week they will get alot more use.



**EDIT** Oh and if you still have a NES get yourself a Wii and have the best of both worlds, play new games and buy the old games for $5 a piece and not have to worry about blowing into cartridges.

My son and I both have 360s. I am ashamed to say I probably play 4-5 times a week for about 3-4 hours each time.



edit:

I almost forgot, we have a wii, ps2, psp, 2 Nintendo ds's, original nes, super nes, orginal xbox, and four computers. We dont play anything but the 360s.

So sad....I have a 60GB PS3 hooked up to a 73" Mitsubishi DLP TV and a Altec Lansing 7.1 surround system but I've been working so much I haven't even turned it on in 3 months other than to make sure it still works
