Gaming threads pop up occasionally but maybe we can try one in the same format as the TV/movies and music threads…
I’ll kick off: lifelong gamer, now middle-aged so fairly big into retrogaming, but also a big miser, so currently working through the greats on Xbox 360, now that the consoles are cheap and the games are for nearly nothing. Highlights so far are the Portals (and their soundtracks!), Tomb Raider 2013 (which I didn’t think I’d like, but man those visuals), and Red Dead Redemption (the “main” game was damn good but I didn’t quite get all the fuss, however Undead Nightmare really puts the putrescent cherry on the cake and completes a classic package).
That’s just the tip of the iceberg though: there’s plenty of 8-bit, PC indie and former-generation stuff in my rotation too, although I have to fit it all into a few spare hours every week due to RL.
What about the rest of you mutants? Is videogaming the newest artform or Skinnerbox BS? Any faves you want to shout from the rooftops? I can talk pretty much any platform - don’t get me started on 3D Ant Attack on the Spectrum - bring 'em on!
