    A thread for anything involving video games!

    What's your favorite game? Genre?

    8-bit, 16-bit, More bits than you can handle!

    Any new games you're currently playing? What do you think of them?

    Anything you are anticipating this coming year?

    Mortal kombat X is driving me crazy at the moment. I love the gory stuff, and it's something about holding the controller and realizing you're the one doing it. I also have always loved mortal kombat, so yeah.

    Evolve is also great. I like being the monster, but it is hard. And everyone that plays it gets the occasional "go f- yourself" from me because, well. They're jerks. Otherwise, gameplay is great.

    Evil Within is incredibly hard, at least for me. I enjoy it though. Survival games where you actually have nothing and learn to fend for yourself is awesome. It's like real life.

    Sold my PS3 a while ago. Waiting until Arkham Knight drops to get a PS4. LOVED the Arkham games so far. But my favorite is The Last of Us. Ooooof. That ending.

    I've recently become obsessed with Destiny.
    We set up my new roommates Xbox 1 yesterday and I haven't been able to stop playing it except to go to work occasionally.

    I've heard the plotline sucks, which a disagree with so far, however I'm worried all the hub bub may be about the ending so we'll have to see.

    DON'T RUIN THE ENDING I'M ALMOST THERE!!!
    They just got to Boulder Colorado and I'm really worried....

    Metal Gear Solid Series and the Elder Scrolls series.
    I grew up playing MMOs, like runescape and WoW. Right now I'm playing Elder Scrolls Online casually and a bit of Counter Strike.

    Is ESO any good? I heard they were doing a massive overhaul on it or something.

    If you're a fan of the elder scroll series and the lore, yes. There's been a lot of changes since beta and a lot of upcoming content soon.

    Love me some Mortal Kombat!!! Who's your main? It's a bit over played, but I can never find break away form using Scorpion! I've been playing him ever since MK3, but he's just so fun to play and I know his combos the most.

    >fan of the lore

    Are you sure? I frequent /r/teslore and I feel it's pretty divided when it comes to ESO lore. Than again ever since C0DA came out and MK said anyones interpretation is right It kinda threw everyone thru a loop.

    I played Oblivion and Skyrim all throughout college. Always wished I had a PC so I could jump into the mod community, but alas it was never meant to be on my poor Mac.
    I was a huge WoW nerd in High School, but I'm really wary of MMORPG's these days because of the life drain they require from players.

    MKX is badass. All the brutalities are nuts. I've played it a few times with friends and love dishing out some pain with Johnny Cage

    If you haven't played Morrowind, I'd highly recommend it! It is literally my favorite game of all time. It can be a bit hard to get into because of its older gameplay mechanics, but once you get into it the story and world is so deep and enthralling.

    There's new mods that make the game, so much better. Gives the game a complete overhaul, making it pretty much HD. But yeah, I grew up playing Morrowind during middle school, one of the best story lines ever. So much content and lore, and Dagoth Ur is just a wicked villain.

    I need to own a game where someone gets bi-sected by another dude who rips open their chest with their bare hands.

    I'm not sure if that sentence makes any sense. I'm not sure if I really care.

    Or sometimes you just want to stick your chewing gum into a freshly created bullet wound on someone's forehead.

    Or magically pull someone's innards out while they are conscious... I feel that.

    Right now, I'm just playing Madden and GTA V regularly. Waiting on Arkham Knight.
