I had a commodore amiga as a kid then onto a SNES, the PS1, PS2 and then onto an XBOX 360. 

Loads to great games over the years. Got totally addicted to Sensible world of soccer. one of the greatest footie games ever made. spent many hours playing it. 

Loved street fighter and mortal kombat series on the SNES as well. spent many wasteful hours practicing the finishing moves and losing the plot when i couldn't get them to work! LOL

A friend was telling me how he set up a game emulator on his computer, can play most of if not all games off pretty much every console that has ever existed, he has then hooked it up to his telly and bought a controller and hey presto he has hundreds of games at his disposal!

I haven't a clue how it works but if/when I figure it out I'll let y'all know!
Hey Podge,
 
I've got a few running on my (android) phone, JohnNES, JohnSNES and GENdroidPlus (for the megadrive)
 
You download these and then find the roms online.  The game files are actually tiny (in kB)
 
It's great playing streets of rage and Super Mario bros on the phone.

Same here, just started up a new file in New Vegas. Gonna play it in hardcore mode while only using melee weapons and see how i get on. The level of customization in 4 looks immense. And if the improvements made to the battle engine are as good as what they claim it is going to be some game.

The battlefields are superb games, Battlefield 4 not so much especially on PS3 they never came out with a decent patch. The 64 player battlefield 2 on the PC is still the best first person shooter ive ever played!

The hype around the Star Wars Battlefield they're doing is unreal.

Apparently the last one was amazing so the expectations with the modern day graphics has surpassed every normal Battlefield.

Pre-ordering it today Clap

Started playing the MSG1 from 1998. Obviously the graphics and gaming mechanics are dated to a degree but its still a brilliant brilliant game. The attention to detail and the depth they went to in the storyline was crazy. A lot of the nuclear warfare industry stuff went way over my head when I was younger.

any of use seen the videos for the Black Ops 3 Beta version online?

Looks a decent game, the wall running doesnt look too annoying and theres no mad jumping like what they had in AW. 

Rejacked looks to be a brutally over power perk, needs to be nerved down a bit.

Still too futuristic for me. Would love for it to go back to the ww2 days. Remember playing the first MoH, that game was a classic which i can't say for any of these latest CoD games.
