    I have a modded X box (not 360)
    40+ games pre loaded in the 300 Gb hard drive

    I have several X box games to swap if anybody is interested

    I also have several Play station 2 games if anybody wants to swap for X box games

    Its funny but I like the older arcade games and Monopoly the best

    Re: Video Games...

    Weve got a Nintendo Wii...but only had it for a few months...finally succumbed to the console thing...so weve only got a few games including the Wii sports (always good for a laugh as the tennis and golf can be fudged so well!), Need for Speed and Shaun Whites Snowboarding.

    Surprisingly, having the Wii in the loungeroom, rather than letting my son have it on his tv in his room, has made it much more a family thing as we tend to both get involved with what the other is playing. I had always resisted the console because I thought that they were too isolating. My mind has been changed!

    I was lucky enough to be given an Atari when I was a kid and have pretty much had consoles ever since.

    I bought a PS3 from Japan when they first came out, and then when I bought a new Bravia it came with a free Australian PS3. I mainly use the JPN one as a Blu Ray player now for movies I bought while in the US.

    I dont have much time to play these days, a couple of hours on the weekend if Im lucky. But its still fun, and the games just keep getting better!

    Old school PC gamer, had PS and still have PS2 but prefer PC Strategy games played CIV2, 3 & 4, BF1942.... Big fan of ID as well, even still have a Floppy version of Wolfenstein 3D (really old school nerd) ::) For that matter I did have a copy of Wolfenstein for Apple 2s on 5 1/4 until I had a major cleanup a few years ago :o

    Might be time for a new console I think but it would cut into the coffee budget :(

    Even though Ive played a majority of all the games released today, like SFIV, CoD4 and World of Warcraft. Id say Starcraft II and Diablo III is where its going to be at when they get released!

    HaHa I still have copies of Wolfenstein on 5 1/4 and Wolfenstein 3D somewhere! (Though certain to no longer be readable).

    Never thought those Civ games would interest me...then I borrowed Civ3 and had a quick little go one evening...the next time I looked up at the clock it was 5am and I needed to be at work by 8! Sooo addictive.

    Not that much time to play now but still have an Xbox and heaps of PC games.

    Re: Video Games...

    I just finished putting together/refurbishing a Japanese sitdown "candy" cabinet. 2 player, 6 button a side 29" monitor - upgraded to VGA and running MAME. Im still playing with the software side but I have upwards of 6000 games available to play.

    Old style arcade all the way - I just cant seem to get my hands around those multi-axis controllers and using my thumbs. A proper joystick and mashing buttons with my fingers is what feels natural to me.

    Obviously I spent way too much time inhabiting arcades as a child.

    Still - I have a new PS2 sitting in the cupboard I havent opened yet. But that is for Grand Turisimo and I have a steering wheel set up for that.

    Re: Video Games...

    I have a cocktail MAME machine that my brother put together for my 40th birthday. Got a few hundred games on it but I always seem to end up playing Pengo. Sometimes Time Pilot gets a run too!

    Also have 3 pinnies and table soccer.

    Still have the Commodore Amiga in the cupboard. Always giggle when I see the Holden Commodore Omega on the road. I figure it was named by someone from my generation of gaming.

    Would like to buy a Wii, but there are many other things on the list above it at present. Food, Mortgage, Shoes, Bills... boring stuff.

    Which pinball machines have you got FB? Id love to have one but Ive not got the space and I think that the nearest service agent is a long way away, so Id be worried that if something went wrong, Id have a heck of a time getting it repaired.

    Ive got an old school - King Pin
    Slightly newer - Sinbad (actually owned by my brother, but i store it for him )
    And my newest one (1994) - STTNG - Star Trek The Next generation. Sad but true fact, this was the first item moved into our new house when we moved in a few years back.

    As some may have guessed, we have a games room. I have always wanted a pinball machine and my wife is very tolerant!
    I bought the Star Trek machine and my brother helped me move it in his van. Whilst at the pinball shop, he saw the Sinbad machine and basically talked himself into buying it. So it arrived a few weeks later.
    The King Pin machine was a feralbay thing. Its a blast from both our pasts, so we went halves. It needs a bit of external work, but the other 2 are in pretty good condition.

    So far, no major problems. Ive done quite a bit of standard maintenance on them. mostly cleaning and globe/rubber replacement, but the occassional solder job has also taken place. And BELIEVE ME, I am not good at that sort of stuff. I actually have more trouble with King Pin that with the heavily electronic Star trek table.

    I believe our esteemed leader has at least one machine too! Although I could be wrong.

    Oh, and if the Powerball dropped my way tomorrow, the additions would be:
    World Cup 94
    The Simpsons Party Pinball
    The Addams Family

    And the couch in the games room would have to go!

    Re: Video Games...

    Id love room for a pinball machine at home too.
    Ill probably have to wait until the kids are old enough to kick out though.

    Like Fatboy - The Addams Family is on my want list should I win the lottery, but Id also love a Twilight Zone and a Star Wars.

    My MAME list has around 6 games with 50 plus plays, lots of 0 and a smattering of 1s and 2s. Time pilot gets a lot of runtime on mine but not as much as Exerion or Rygar.

    Funhouse is great. It was the pre-cursor to Road Show which was another machine on my short list.
    It basically dropped off my list due to the number of machine specific parts (Red & Ted) that could incur issues, and the cost of the said parts. But I loved playing both Fun House and Road Show.

    Yes, a Star Wars pinball machine and Indiana Jones would have to be my picks. But really, any pinball machine would probably keep me happy for hours!

    Pinball machines when I was growing up didnt have digital scores.
    They were 5 cents a game and and you had to load the ball first with a lever and then pull back a spring loaded rod to launch the ball into play.
    Something like this one:

    Got two PS2s, one for home and one for work 8-)

    Have the Xbox360 that I got with my mobile, and the PS3 which I was planning to get the billy lids for Christmas just gone.

    Am a big fan of driving games (Gran Turismo and V8 Supercars), and WWII first person shooters and flight combat games.

    My old time favourite was the Amiga 2000 I had, with over 1500 cracked games on discs. Some of the best all time games were on that system..Superfrog, Wings, Lemmings and others were IMO among the best games in terms of gameplay you will see. Still kick myself for selling it *inserts bashing head against wall emoticon ;D

    Ive got a Scaletrix set that was given to me one Mothers Day. I also have a replica of the Ford Torino of Starsky and Hutch and Russell Ingals Ford V8 Supercar, along with the two lame "Bathurst" cars that came with the track originally.

    My Scalextric set is somewhere in the garage.
    The track is the Bathurst set but my car is a Porche 911.
    Its chassis has been lightened all over and weight added back in places for track hugging ability.
    I used to race it at the big track at Rushcutters Bay Bowling Alley back in the late 70s.

    Re: Video Games...

    I tend to stick to online FPS games on the PC mostly.

    Started off early 2001 (I think that was the year) playing Medal of Honour : Allied Assault, played that for about 3 years solid I think, then moved on to BF42 a little bit before Battlefield 2 came out, have been playing that ever since (only about 680 hours on 1 account so far :().

    We hire out consoles at my shop, have taken the X360 and PS3 home, prefer the PS3 if only for Bluray and (touchwood) it doesnt break down like the 360.

    I like the PC for shooting / FPS games, console for sports (tigerwoods golf) and racing (Forza, Gran Turismo etc) games.

    I used to build my own slot cars F1 style & they went as fast or faster
    Sometimes the chassis would be built entirely with soldered wire Sometimes with brass or copper plate

    I found some photos on the net of similar to mine (Brings back memories)

    Re: Video Games...

    My son and I grabbed "Far Cry 2" recently.... What a great game 8-). You can just start/stop whenever you like and pick up from where you left off. Not like quite a few other games of this genre, where you have to complete a level or reach a milestone.

    Also very addictive ::)

    Id be willing to bet that there is a whole forum on building your own slot cars, modifying them to go faster, talk about what is the lightest material to use to make one, etc, etc... :D *goes off to look*

    Quite different than the REs Ive played, this is definitely more of a "follow the designated path" rather than semi free roaming around a mansion. But it still has the right elements for a RE game (zombies & gore galorre)

    Graphically, stunning, and the 5.1 surround sound is very very good. R18 rated so definitely not one for the kiddies but well worth a go (even if you only rent it for a few nights).

    I have a PS3 and play only racing games with the logitech force feedback Driving Force wheel.
    As for slotcars i race every 2 weeks in 2 clubs here in Brisbane, Slotcar Legends & Q32. We race 1/32 plastic cars mainly on wooden routed 4 lane tracks, i have my own 4 lane wooden track under the house, with a collection of over 220 cars at the moment, it`s a sickness so now my wife has to put with slotcar and coffee hobbies.
    I have a picture of my track on the thread - we know you like coffee , but what else.
    It would be good to arrange a coffee/race day here for the Brisbane CSs if anyone wanted to and wants to have a fun arvo playing with toy slot cars :).
