Stadia - No interest to me.

PS5 is where its at!
I would be interested as it requires no money from our point of view in terms of kit as it just uses your Chrome browser and you are away but the lag is the killer!

I'm not a fan of Google's always watching on requirement. They don't need my data so why should I give it to them? Do they need to know my gaming habits? Do they need to be able to insert adverts into my games, on the fly.

I don't trust them so they can boo off.

honestly not sure how I feel about this

as someone that played FFVII the FIRST time it came around over 4 bloody CDs on the PC it was a hell of a game.

Going back and trying to re-create the past is hard

although saying that Crash Bandicoot remasters sell gangbuster numbers!

Graphics really have come a long when since the PS1 era.

I swear even the PC was churning out better graphics than THIS!!

How do people find the time for video gaming lol, I remember having the original Playstation with Resident Evil 2, Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo, ISS soccer, etc.

Nowadays play FM mobile under my desk at work lol and a few sniper games off Google play (hidden meaning there?)

Halcyon days!

Gran Turismo and ISS Soccer were my high school days!!

I think I have time for gaming still (at 38!) as I tend to now play very involved games. So stuff like FIFA, Rocket League, Cod, even GTA I can pick up and play and then stop 20mins later without any major issue. What I don't have time for now is long drawn over super involved single player campaigns!

Yeah, I remember spending whole summer days playing a football management game.

So out of touch with the latest games now, might have to get back in to it. I like downloading those free games of google play store, the consoles and games seem so expensive.

Get a 2nd hand PSVita and mod it to play all the retro games. That’s what I do. :)

I am one of those understanding wives and I also have an understanding husband - it's a good job we picked each other. He's always going on about how he could never have married someone who didn't game.

He's an arse though because he decided he wanted to give WoW Classic a go so we're both playing that right now :rolleyes: Goodbye uni degrees hahaha

My wife used to play WoW but doesn’t really game anymore.
She does buy me game-stuff though, currently wearing a VaultBoy t-shirt she got me for Xmas.

Took me all morning to send an email to a potential client because I was nervous about the amount of money I was asking for. Pretty sure this never happens to men.
