My memories of "The First Game I played" are kinda skewed, as that time period in my life doesn't really have an obvious timeline, and I don't remember what happened when... it's a tie between Super Mario World (SNES) at my cousin's house, Final Fantasy 4 or 6 (SNES), Rockman X4 (PSX) all at my grandma's house,… » 3/04/15 6:21pm 3/04/15 6:21pm

Have you used the C-stick on the Super 3DS yet? Because I imagine it will be a little more like that instead of a d-pad or... whatever.

So is just about anything else you could be passionate about. What about eSports? What about normal ___ball sports? Those are even BIGGER "time sinks". What exactly is the difference in that regard?

I grew up reading fantasy novels, like Harry Potter, Eragon series, Ranger's Apprentice, and Tolkien (which took until I was a teenager to be able to actually understand). But I've always loved sci-fi, with Star Wars and Mass Effect and Halo being some of my favourite universes. So I've also read a ton of those… » 2/18/15 7:46pm 2/18/15 7:46pm

That's quite the ludicrous and brash assertion there, bub. In fact I'd go so far as to say that was a needlessly toxic interjection. There's nothing wrong with people loving one game more than any other, or with eSports and competitive video games. And there's no need at all ever to randomly bash its fans. Certainly… » 2/18/15 3:43pm 2/18/15 3:43pm
