Certain games like C.O.D. and sports games are better in multi player mode, but I like playing single player games as well. I play games with my boys at home and there skill level is not that good for the most part.
Console gaming has taking over and the investors/makers are putting their effort and money where the sells are. Everyone doesn't like PC gaming, Although I like them both, I'm sure it's a reason why console gaming is overall better in my opinion.
I use to be good at fighting games as a kid, but lately I've been having trouble playing Tekken. I haven't played in a while and forgot most of the moves. I was playing online the other day and got my butt kicked.
Music was not my focal point as a child playing games but I know exactly what you mean. I'm glad gaming music has gotten a lot better, more modern, although you still have modern games with bad music but no where near the games of the past.
I had a problem with my xbox 360, it turned to a red light, but only when the controller was plugged in. I Thought it was the console, but the problem was the controller, I replace the controller and had no more problems.
I just got the Kinect for the first time on the 360, and it's okay, it's still new to us but I can see the fun fading out fast. It's not as accurate as I thought it was going to be. My boys seem to be having fun with it and thats the main thing.
I'm still waiting on the XBOX one. I'm doing just fine with my 360. I'll wait for the price drop, I'm in no rush, now when they stop making games for the Xbox 360, I'll be first in line to get the Xbox one.
It's cheaper to force people to play online, plus the material that is saved probably helps the environment out in some way. It's not a bad idea. I personally don't pirate games, especially console games, it's to much of a process, at least for me.
