How many times a week will you play your video games, and on what system? Do you play on more then one system per day and if so how many hours do you spend on that one system? How long will you play a certain game until you retire it for later? Which game do you play the most? I currently only own an X-box,and how long I play it per week varies depending on the activities I do that week and how busy my week is, but I try to play it atleast 5 hours a week. Ill usually play a game, depending on what type of game it is and how long it is, atleast 3 times before ill retire it. The games i play the most are Knights of the Old Republic, Knights of the Old Republic : Sith Lords, Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell : Pandora Tommorrow, Splinter Cell : Chaos Theory,Splinter Cell : Double Agent, Ghost Recon, Ghost Recon 2, Ghost Recon Island Thunder, Rainbow Six 3, Rainbow Six 3 : Black Arrow, Rainbow Six : Lockdown, and Need for Speed : Most Wanted. Also do you have any suggestions for games I should try.

I play my Wii and DS almost daily. I've got over 50 virtual console games for that, plus 16 Wii games. I don't have an X-box, so I can't help you with that. I have so many games, I usually only play through a game once nowadays. I have a huge backlog of Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Genesis, Gamecube, DS and Wii games I need to get around to playing. On my DS, I play Animal Crossing everyday. I've actually invested over 300 hours on Pokemon Silver, which I play on a Game Boy Advance SP.

Thats cool that you play your Wii and DS often, and wow thats a lot of games, so nowadays you play through a game once, does that mean you used to play them more than once? I have an old Nintendo 64 too and i have a bunch of games for it, but only a few i still play, I use to love to play it, but now im strictly an X-box person no matter how many problems and complications it gives me.Do you know where i can find Rainbow Six or Banjo Kazooie for Nintendo 64? so you like Animal Crossing? ive heard a few things about it, whats it like? and wow thats a lot of hours on Pokemon Silver, I used to play Pokemon on my Nintendo 64,Whats your Favorite Pokemon? If you like Pokemon, have you ever tried Yugioh,I love Yugioh video games and I also from time to time play the Yugioh card game, but not as much as I used too, oh and by the way ive never been into Game Boy's so what does the SP mean?

Game Boy Advance SP (SP=special, I think.) If you're looking for Banjo Kazooie and Rainbow Six, you should try garage sales, pawn shops, second-hand stores or sites such as ebay.com or estarland.com. While you're at it, get Banjo Tooie. Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie are great games! Haven't played Rainbow Six. Basically in Animal Crossing, you move into a town where all your neighbors are animals. You can fish, collect bugs, collect fossils. If you want a bigger house, you'll have to pay off your loan. You can donate fish, bugs, fossils and paintings to the museum or sell them. You'll run errands for your neighbors. The game plays on real time, so when it's 5 PM in real time, it's 5 PM in Animal Crossing. If you go for a long time without playing, your town will be overrun with weeds and your neighbors will be upset with you. If you want to learn more, check out gamefaqs.com. You can read reviews and FAQs. There's also a Gamecube version which has Nintendo games in it that you can play in your house. As for Yu-Gi-Oh, I've never played it. I won Pokemon Silver in an e-bay auction along with some other games. I'm not a Pokemon fanatic. (I probably won't get anymore Pokemon games, because I feel the need to level up all of my Pokemon, which takes forever.) They are good RPGs though. I don't really have a favorite Pokemon, but I like the ones that have strong stats like Lugia and Lapras. On the other Ditto is next to useless. I used to play games several times through. (Earthbound, Chrono Trigger and Super Mario RPG)I didn't have as many games back then and those three games were just epic. Now, once I beat a game, I move on to another one. I do have some that I'd like to play through again though. (Super Mario Sunshine and Skies of Arcadia: Legends)

SP meaning special makes perfect sense, thanks for the ideas ill try and check pawn shops,garage sales and on line for Rainbow Six and Banjo Kazooie, yeah I know Banjo Tooie is an awesome game cause I own that one and I used to play it and ive beaten it like twice,thats why I want to find Banjo Kazooie cause I used to rent it and I loved that one too. Do you like war games? if you do then It think you would like Rainbow Six cause its an awesome war game. Animal Crossing sounds kinda cool cause of all the stuff you can do,and thats preatty neat that the game time is linked with actual time,I might actually see about looking up a gamefaq for it, thanks for the idea, and my brother owns a Game Cube so I might suggest to him to see about getting Animal Crossing. Have you ever played Harvest Moon? Is Animal Crossing anything like it? That sucks that you have never played Yugioh, but if you dont really care for Pokemon then you probabily wouldnt care for Yugioh. Thats cool that you won it though, and yeah I know it takes forever to level up Pokemon. Have you ever played Pokemon Snap? Thats another game I kinda want to find for my Nintendo 64. Pokemon is a preatty good RPG, and I would have to say my favorite Pokemon is either Charizard or Pikachu, and I agree Ditto is kinda useless. Also have you ever played Legend of Zelda: Ocarana of Time cause I think that games awesome too.Yeah I know when you dont have a lot of games its easier to play thorough them more times than if you have a huge collection, but I think there will always be aleast one or two games that you wanna play through atleast a couple times.
