Thought it would be a cool idea to have a place for us to spout off about video games. And since we're traders, how about a thread there where we can set up video game swaps? Once I finish with a game I almost never play it a second or third time, and since I almost play I miss all the good stuff: I'd love to trade some stuff I don't need for games I missed. Like, I just now want to play Bioshock, on PC. That's how far behind I am.

Any thoughts on a Video Game subforum?

Pressing Start to switch between kicking and punching? Forget that. MK was way better on Super Nintendo.

Smithy's way to high brow to catch onto Adam Sandler movie references.

let me help you out theomont ... ahem ...

I disagree, it's a very good game, but I think Donkey Kong is the best game ever.

best 4 player game ever NBA jam on SNES. especially all the awesome cheat codes for crazy characters.

i'd quite possible kill anyone if they stole my secret of mana, chrono trigger and ff3 SNES cartridges.

and if were talking 8 bit, I still have my power glove.

Yeah. Don't ever expect me to get an Adam Sandler reference.

Except for "Stop Staring at me Swan," because when I was like 18-20 I knew this chick Megan and I tried every trick in the book to try and get with her and I failed miserably. And she used to do that "stop staring at me swan" crap all the time.

why not just NBA hangtime for n64. its basically the same game, but slightly faster.

and yeah, what about golden eye and mario kart?

i have a every home console made my nintendo (virtual boy included) and must say, the n64 gets the most play. by far.

Oh, and I didn't mean to get too off topic. A video game subforum seems like a good idea where people could share PSN and XBOX logins. Think of the epic Call of Duty sessions that could get going.

It is and I think that may be the best 4 player game ever, followed by mario kart 64.

having grown up in the 80s and 90s, NES and SNES was my arena, i never made it to n64. Ive played bond, ive blade mario kart. prefer bond over mario kart, but i pefer nba jam over bond since I suck a shooters. super offroad was also good multiplayer action back in the day.
