Thought we should have one as we seem to have quite a lot of Gamers in here.

I play on 2 platforms these days, PS4 and iPad.

The latter has really come on leaps and bounds and I have just finished all the single player content on Worms 3. The PS4 should hopefully start bringing it's A game after E3 next week.

Am planning to drop a couple of quid on the Playstation Store tonight as Octodad has been reduced to £7 so I want to give it a whirl. For those that haven't seen it...

I can only dream of having enough spare time to play on a PS4 - perhaps when the kids are older.

GAMING I could go on about it forever and ever....

I did a Computer Games Tech course at University so yeah I casually have a degree in computer games haha - not that I did anything with it really as I found that I enjoyed playing games more than making them, I also didn't have a real specialisation I was a little bit good at everything and thats no good in that industry!

ANYWHOOO...

We own most consoles between me and my partner... SNES, N64, PS2, PS3, XBox360, Wii are the ones that are currently plugged in :D The only reason we haven't got a PS4/Xbox One yet is there hasn't been a release that has made spending the money on it justifiable (considering 8 month baby and me having no job haha)

My partner is currently playing the Bioshock Infinite DLC, and I'm watching with keen interest (love the Bioshock storylines)- my only weak point with gaming is I can't cope with anything remotely 'jumpy out' although Borderlands is an exception to that rule... yet I can't play Zelda Windwaker... don't ask - I don't even know how that works!!!

Me I'm currently addicted to Minecraft, love it - I run my own little server with a few friends running a modpack and I'm playing a modded skyblock map on single player.

We're also big into gaming memorabilia like figures, t-shirts and accessories! We have so many... fills up our house quite a bit.

It'd be fair to say that we would be quite shocked if baby girl turned out to be a non-gamer.... as well we're very into our Board games and Magic the Gathering too!

We are very much a gaming household too. We are dirty PC gamers though ;)

Saying that we are in a bit of a funk at the moment, nothing is holding our attention enough. We both decided to give World of Warcraft another go after quitting but realised it was a mistake, we gave The Elder Scrolls Online a go and I got bored of that, we recently beta'd Wildstar and again after an hour that was me done.

The most time I have spent on a game recently is Hearthstone, but that is because I can play one game while I'm waiting for the husband to finish what he is doing or sit during quiet times on 63336 playing a few games.

I have 40 games in my Steam library at the moment (husband has 219). The husband has started making his own game, a few times, but keeps getting into a funk with it...being a one man developer is a hard job haha

husband and I are big gamers too :D

Its great hearing about other 'couple' gamers.. I get sick of hearing about women complaining about their husbands/boyfriends gaming all the time, I tell them all to join it!

We have PS4 and I love it. I play a lot of lego marvel super heros on there at the moment. Also love COD but really want to complete lego first.

We still have my old NES and actually play it from time to time :D

lol We have played Zelda, first mario and Bubble Bobble not too long ago. . We got it out a few years ago for the first time since I packed it up and we were really surprised it worked, the old gun didn't work but I was wondering if the tv could be something to do with that. Its funny having a retro gaming night every now and then haha

Sadly my old Spectrum doesn't work but I did plug the wrong adapter in when I was younger and blew it up :(

I'm more of an RPG fan myself particularly Final Fantasy and Tales Of series, and I like the indie games things like Don't Starve etc. and of course I love Minecraft ;) me and my partner are playing through Rayman Legends after finishing Origins - they're both GREAT fun to play :D

I finished Rayman Legends a few weeks ago

The amount of content in that game is amazing but I enjoyed ALL of it.

It also has 40 odd levels from Origins for you to do, plus challenges etc.

I did it all, never got bored once

I see some great ideas for niche blog websites jumping off the page here ;)
Those with the most crazy hobbies have a big advantage.

Can I lower the tone and mention my love of Clash of Clans? :-[
Mobile games are they only ones that I get the time to play these days.

Clash of Clans and Hay Day were reportedly generating $2.4 million per day for the company in the first half of 2013

I really don't like the look of Battlefield, maybe I should give it a go one day as we do have it.
