Wait until you have kids, D. I own a TV for everyone in my household. And I still get evicted from the living room from time to time. LOL

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to sharing a TV with my new roomie.  Something will have to change there.

Poke his eyes out.

This is a lot cheaper than buying a new PS3 and TV.  I'll have to look into that.  Thanks!

Things like listening to music or watching TV or just napping in bed. Sometimes all three at once.

What are you, a fucking cat? Less napping, moar fapping!

I'm like a younger version of my dad, just constantly falling asleep on the sofa.

I'm trying to be better about that.  I've beaten every game I've bought lately outside of Killzone 2, Little King's Story and Bionic Commando, but that was just because they were boring.Nyaa (That's right.  I said it.  I know an angry Nintendo shitstorm is brewing.)

I'm going to beat Arkham Asylum tonight, and I'm hoping to buy the Metroid Prime Trilogy and beat at least one of the games in it.  I've never beaten a Metroid before, and it is about time.

You dirty son of a bitch.

Yeah I dont watch much TV or sit around listening to music. To me there is no form of media as interesting or as engaging as video games.

There are factors GG that I dont have to deal with, sharing a TV would really mess me up.

I agree on your view of games, but even sitting on a couch they require effort, be it physical or mental. You can't close your eyes and lie down like you can listening to music. Sharing a TV is my bane as well as people who want to watch stuff "with me". Whilst I just want them to **** off. If there was room I would consider sitting two TVs next to each other with headphones.

Oh and I occasionally read. It's rare, but it does happen.

When constipated I do a lot of gaming on the bog, but since I got Rhythm Heaven I haven't been able to put it down, despite getting perfects in everything bar 3 games - damn Moai heads 2. I think I did my second (runs through) on Phoenix Wright 2, was all exclusive to toilet seat time. Nyaa

I guess this is why I want shorter (but cheaper) games.

There are many things I'd like to share with your new roomie...

It adds an extra element to Rhythm Heaven. When you involuntarily er..... squeeze something out then it makes your hand all a twitter and you can't maintain the beat. Nyaa

 If you want to beat a Metroid game, why not download Super Metroid?

It is cheaper: $8 instead of $50

The game is shorter

And I know you are not a big fan of motion/pointer control, so that would be another plus.

My mistake, but still you should buy Super Metroid anyways. And true about LKS, well Pikmin 3 will probably fill that void.

Actually, I've already got Super Metroid.  I pick it up and play it from time to time.  Arkham Asylum brought back memories of playing the Metroid Prime games, and I feel the need to play them again.

Time or lack thereof, compulsive buying more than I can play, boredom, meaning maybe the game didn't turn out like I expected...there are many factors.

 I dont feel it was screaming for it, but they could definetly been more savvy with how you seperate and command the troops. Did you use the advanced controls with MP3?

 It's also a deadly game of trying not to drop the DS in the toilet and balancing it on the windowsill without touching any bits I dont want it touching. 

All games should be played like this.

I guess I have obessive compulsive finishing games disorder. They way i see it until I beat it I did not get my money's worth. Some of you say "well I play it until I feel I played enough" I cant do that, if I dont finish a game I feel like I threw money down a toliet. And I know that doesn't make sense, really what is the difference if you play 12 hours and stop and I play 14 hours and finish it, ohhh I got 2 hours more big deal, but that quest to finish it drives me mad. Unless the game sucks, in that case I did throw money down the toilet so why bother finishing it.

When I do actually play games that have a finish, I do end up finishing them -- including the garbage.

 As I've got older I've got more impatient. I used to read a book from start to end and the same for a film. Now if it doesn't grip me I dont feel like wasting any more time on it. I've given up on many shitty films after half an hour.

 I think it's admirable that you finish all of your games. I really do. It all comes down to how each individual prefers to enjoy their games. Some will finish all of them, others will only glean as much enjoyment as they need from the experience, and move on; and there are even those whom will scour every nook and crevice of each game they own for every last morsel of gameplay. None of these gameplay choices are misguided; the only thing that truely matters is enjoyment.

Some incessantly correct spelling mistakes, such as "experiance" (see: experience).

While I tend to push myself through games, I can't be bothered to do the whole 100% everything.  Seems a little too requisite of obsessive-compulsion.
