    Someone asked me recently if I spent longer on the net reading/talking about games than actually playing them.

    This got me thinking -it's true! I probably spend more time scouring second hand shops for games, raking Ebay for bargains, buying magazines and reading them about games and posting messages on various gaming forums than actually sitting down and playing for any length of time.

    Surely I cant be in a minority? Can I?

    Currently playing :

    Gamecube R Racing Evolution
    Dreamcast Le Mans 24HR
    Saturn Panzer Dragoon Zwei
    Megadrive Gods
    Master sys. Golden Axe
    GBA Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance
    NeoGeo p. Sonic
    G.Gear Chakan

    GC - ROTK
    PS2 - Downhill Domination
    PS2 - FFX-2
    PC - Counter Strike
    PC - FFXI
    SNES - Shadowrun

    I sometimes flick through some other games, but due to work and other commitments I too most probably spend just as much time reading about them as I do playing them :p

    I usually play games for 20-30 minutes or less, then I'm pretty much done playing for the day/couple of days.

    Most of the time though, it's just a 10 minute screw around session. I really like my older games in the arcades, and older ones on NES and SNES, and those I can bother playing for longer than 10 minutes, but I still don't do that often. While playing them I wish, "Wow, it'd be neat to see like 10 more new adventures for this particular game using the same engine and similar graphics and sounds." but unfortunately since some of them are 10 years old or older, that isn't going to happen.

    Damn :censored: 3d games anyways.

    Because of work, I read and chat more about games than actually playing them too.

    Currently Playing:
    XBox: Halo (multiplayer)
    PC: Rise of Nations, Alpha Centauri, Zangband

    Because all my XBox controllers are at a friends house, I'm digging into my PC at the moment.

    Job + Social Life = Very little time for gaming :thumbsdow
