No game compares to how bad they are than the Tick game! It's the worse fucking game I've ever played and I owned a Atari 2600 and shit load of horrible games for it.

I remember when I first played it when it came out, I wanted to buy it, but up here games were way over 100 dollars back in the day when we were getting screwed in prices in everything. So, I rented it first to play it, BEST DECISION I EVER MADE! I played the game for over 6 hours straight with my brother.... thinking the end was near, we must be near the end we thought, we just kept playing to get to the ending.... that 6 hours was only for the first 2 levels! It wouldn't end! The enemies kept on coming! IT WOULDN'T STOP!

Somebody reviewed that game on here years ago.. Paper or Joe maybe? ..someone, I can't remember but I don't recall them being extremely harsh on it. I will most likely never beat it as most mediocre previous gen titles just get an hour or two sampling and if they don't draw me in by then, I move on.

It's been great getting some classic genny/snes games lately though.. they are excellent to mix in between this generation titles for variety and change of pace.

I assume your a collector then right? that would explain some of the "interesting" game choices you've made.

I wish I was that nuts about collecting games. Games aren't my only hobby so I only buy the ones I plan to keep and play again. Although if anyone finds a Ninja Warriors Again copy for the snes anywhere I will sell my soul.

Since I got my first Atari as a kid, yup.. almost 30 years worth of gaming fun.

Here's a shot of my current gen stuff, plus a mix of Blu-Rays and PSP's on the top.



Thing is I'll give everything a try. Many of those "interesting" titles surprise me and end up more enjoyable than some of the biggest blockbusters. Obviously you play you're fair share of obscure or mediocre reviewed titles as well since you have over 1,000 logged games beaten.

But yeah, if I weren't a collector, I'd never buy the Shaq-Fu's of the world.


Here's a stand-up one of my brothers got for me from a Gamestop in West Virginia. They were giving it away and he scooped it up since he knew I loved the series and just stuff like that in general.



Here's $800 worth of lumber I spent extending our deck around the back corner of the house. Still have to finish the handrails this weekend.

Now we have a nice 8'x58' deck on the back for cookouts and such and a 10'x52' patio on the front corner of the house for lounging on, during warm summer days/nights

You have no idea the extent of his collection. It makes the rest of us collectors truly envious! But Gibby (NES4EVA) is a great sport and a great guy. Of course, after saying that I hope he remembers me when he makes out his will. ;)

I just bought Red Dead Redemption, online would be fun, if it would ever connect me to anyone!

Anyone else having this problem? I connect to people, sometimes, but others, it's like nobody plays it and I know that's not true, cause one of my friends that has it, always finds people to play with.

Good heavens never thought of that! Gibby is by any chance I can be in your will? Tell you what you add me in and I'll add you. I don't have much games, but I do have plenty of money. hope that sufficient.
