Who else is like Nino into video games? :D
What games are currently playing? What platforms do you use? What kind of player are you?

Feel free to talk about anything related to video games! 8-)

I play with PS4 and my mobile. I used to play King's puzzle video games on my mobile a lot, but I stopped playing them before Pokemon Go was released. Now I only play PoGo with my mobile. I'm a solo player, but I recently started to do legendary raids. When I'm not doing a legendary raid (or sometimes tier 4), I still play PoGo alone unless I'm with my sisters (they are casual players).

As for PS4, I played Tales of Berseria for almost a year lol I finally got tired of it in April-May (or more like that fight - boost your weapons - fight - boost...). Then I started to play first-person shooter games like Call of Duty, Doom, Resident Evil, Prey... But after finishing more than a few games I kinda got tired of that genre :x I have Call of Duty: Ghosts to finish, but it has to wait 'cause I started to play Dragon Age: Inquisition not long ago and it's so goooood :D We have a lot of video games in our libraries so it's great that you can try different games without wasting your money.

I like RPG when I play alone and co-op shooting games and racing games when I play with someone else. I totally suck at shooting and driving so there's always so much laughing going on when I play those kinds of games with someone :D Last month me and my sister had so much fun playing Ride 2, Earth Defense Force 4.1 and Resident Evil 5.

For whatever reason the only fighting game I like is Mortal Kombat. I have tried several different fighting games but so far only MK games have been for my liking.

Born and raised gamer here!

My genre of choice is JRPG. Currently trying to finish FFXV, but there’s so many hunts 😩
I’m horrible at FPS games and driving games too, so I just kinda stay in my lane, so to speak. As far as mobile, I’ve recently been really into Cybird’s Ikémen Romances, but the good stuff seems to be hidden behind a pay wall, so I’m not sure if I’ll continue after I finish the current story.

I spent WAAAAAAAYYY to much of my life playing WoW since vanilla and haven’t really played it since Warlords, but am really looking forward to Classic’s release

I used to play the Pokemon games and found them again this week, so I may charge my old Gameboys once more... I've also spend too much of my time on WoW and LOTRO (though I haven't played for over two years now).

These days it's only Sims, another old time favourite, that still runs off with my gaming budget.

Most of my time is spend on a browser game called Ponyisland though... I even have Arashi ponified over there XD. That site has been my second home and my sanctuary for over 12 years.

I think the very first game I played was that duck hunt game on NES :D It was the very early 90s when we got the console, though at first I think it was actually my dad who played it the most (even though it was bought to us kids) lol I sucked at shooting then, and I still suck XD

My problem with RPG is that when there is too much text on screen or long story scenes I can't concentrate and I end up skipping them. That of course means that at some point I'm kinda lost and wonder what the hell I'm supposed to do lol And so I always end up wasting time just running around :D

I’ve liked video games my entire life. I’m pretty loyal to Nintendo, having owned each console since the NES up until the Wii. I played a lot of hand held games, too, having at least one version of each of Nintendo's handheld consoles. These days I mostly play puzzle games on my phone. I’d like to get a Switch and get back into console gaming.
My favorite games are the Professor Layton series, Animal Crossing, and Mario Party or sport games. I rarely finish games, even getting to the final level of the first Donkey Kong Country game and just giving up. I was proud to have the top score on Star Fox 64, though, and my brother never managed to beat it.

I've loved playing video games since I've learned how to handle and play on a gameboy. My game of choice are handpicked from different genres but for the life of me, I can't play any horror games. Horror games would literally be the death of me. I prefer playing Playstation consoles and openworld games. *ehem* skyrim *ehem* Also, I know it's a bit childish, I'm freakin 26 years old but I'm highly anticipating the latest and hopefully last installment on the kingdom hearts series. It's basically my harry potter of games. I also play Tekken, my character is Asuka Kazama. hehe. I'm currently saving to buy PS4 this year or hopefully next year. *crosses fingers*

I just ordered three PS4 games yesterday :3
- Resident Evil 6, because I just started to play the game with my sister a few days ago but we didn't have time to play it that much before she went back home. It feels better than RE5, and I want to have a game that I can play with someone else.
- Dragon Age: Inquisition, because it takes forever to finish it and the copy I have right now is from the library. I can't even renew the loan anymore lol
- Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration. I haven't played it before, but the graphics look fine and the game has a co-op feature so I'm sure it's gonna be fine. At least it was cheap lol


I'm waiting for English release of Earth Defense Force 5 to be out. Not sure why it's taking so long, the game was released in Japan last Dec... 4.1 has awful graphics and there isn't really much story, and I don't expect much from 5 either lol But it's a great co-op game :D
