    Parents: Do you follow the rating labels when buying a game for kids?

    I definitely would not buy a game for another parent's child if the rating wasn't appropriate for him or her. I have let my kids play games with questionable ratings. I'm not the one who actually bought them, but I did check out the games or my husband did, first. We also paid attention as they...

    Do you think kids play games too much?

    I remember playing outside a ton when I was a kid. I just don't see it as much any more. I see so many kids playing video games. PC games, consoles, even on the phone while walking through a store. Of course, it's up to their parents to supervise it. I know my kids could get carried away at...

    Snowed in! Looking for suggestions

    So, we are snowed in right now, and I'm looking for suggestions for a PC game that I can pick up and put down. I'll probably play more this week, until the weather subsides, but after that I won't have tons of time to devote to it. Are there any good games that you can suggest that are easy to...

    Is anybody playing Rift?

    I've heard that it's a lot like WoW. I've been a WoW fan for years, but I'm not as into it as I was. I've been too busy to check Rift out, but I've been thinking about doing it. I might end my WoW subscription for good if I can find another game. Anyone play this game hardcore? Do you...

    Wondering why some Games aren't available on PC

    I don't know what it takes to make a game on PC as well as console, but it seems like it would be profitable to make both types. My husband was recently commenting that a game he wanted is only available on console, but he'd rather play on PC than Playstation, so now he doesn't want it at all. I...

    Are you giving/getting any new games or DLC etc. for Christmas?

    I'm giving games, but I'm not sure if I'll receive any. I'll probably buy myself something after the holidays are over. I'll probably pick up the WoW expansion. I've bought two PS games for my youngest and I'll probably give my older daughter some game time for WoW. Now that she's away at...

    Do you do a lot of farming in the games you play?

    This thread was inspired by another post, where someone mentioned that he farms a lot. So, what about you? Do you farm a lot? Do you like it or just do it because you need stuff? I don't mind farming sometimes. It can be kind of relaxing to just mindless move around the game world and farm...

    Do you like single player or multi player content better?

    Do you have a strong preference, or does it depend on things like you're mood, how much time you have to play, etc.? I don't mind a little bit of single player stuff, especially if I'm cranky or don't have much time. Overall, I've had a better experience playing multi player content. WoW just...

    Should Game Makers take a harder line against Cheating?

    When you're playing a game and you run into or get matched up with someone who cheats or hacks, it can be very frustrating. This is especially true if you lose rank/rating etc. because of them. It can really be aggravating when the game company ignores it. I won't name any names, but one...

    Have you ever reported anyone in an online game?

    Has anyone ever pushed your buttons so bad that you reported them? Maybe they hacked or cheated. Maybe they were using slurs or bullying someone else. There are many reasons why people report others on games. Have you ever felt like doing it or actually done it?

    Can you gift mobile games?

    Is it possible to gift mobile games to other people? If so, how does it work? Also, if you can suggest any good games that would be worth gifting, please post them here. I don't play much on my phone (PC gamer who loves MMORPG style), so I'm not too familiar with what's really fun.

    Which games have the best PvP?

    I enjoy PvP, but I've only really played WoW seriously. I've heard that other games do PvP better, so I'm looking for opinions on the best PvP games. I like the MMORPG thing but would also consider others. I like team based PvP as well, like RBG and arena. Single player could work too I guess...

    Warlords launch hit by DDOS attack?

    So, apparently the launch of WoW's latest xpac wasn't just the typical release mess but was impacted by a DDOS attack. This has happened to WoW several times in the recent past, but must really suck for Blizzard when launching a new xpac, since there are already bound to be problems on release...

    Who is playing Warlords of Draenor?

    WoW just released its latest expansion, Warlords of Draenor. Any WoW fans here who have purchased it? Give us a review. Good, bad, indifferent, buggy? What's the consensus so far?

    Are you a Collector in your favorite Games?

    Do you collect things like weapons, armor, novelty items, toys, etc? I tend to collect armor and weapons that look cool or are hard to get, and I also like the novelty items or limited time items. I guess collecting isn't all that different from achievement, just a different prize. lol

    What payment model do you prefer for games?

    Buy to play, Pay to play (sub), Free to play (or often pay 2 win)... some combine more than one method, like WoW for example. It's buy to play (buy the game/xpac), pay to play (monthly sub), and also has microtransactions (that really aren't so "micro"). I guess you would call it paymium. I do...

    Older Gamers

    Do you play with any older gamers? Like, do you raid or PvP with any older people on your team? I know some people think it's weird, but why shouldn't older people play? It's fun, and if they can keep up and not hold back the team, why not? Does age matter to you at all?

    Anyone else get motion sickness from games?

    Some games, or parts of them, can literally give me motion sickness. Has anyone else experienced this? I can't play a game that makes me feel nauseous. I've also had some games just give me a headache. Anyone else?

    Arcade Games

    When I was a kid, we played a lot of games in arcades. Of course, then we wanted those games for our home collections as well. I remember some games that were available for Atari. Later, I got my kids this controller thing to hook up to the TV to play games like Pac Man. I also found a game that...

    Why the stigma surrounding gaming?

    While I think the stigma is less than it once was, I still see a lot of bad attitudes toward gamers and gaming. I realize some people get "addicted" and ignore all else to play games. That is of course bad, but most people can control themselves. I don't see what is so much worse about enjoying...
