It's My Addiction.

Normally I do not talk geek here on EP, because there is a whole lot more to my personality then just that.

Okay, I'm going geek here. I play games on my PC, almost completely.

If it's a console game I want to play. Well, I just emulate it.

I still own all my consoles, I just haven't used them in a very long time.

I love oblivion, Fallout, SimCity 4.. I love a lot of older games too.

Ever play Crystalis or Snake Rattle 'n' Roll Those are a couple of my favs.

For you other geeks out there who will get this. Here is the new computer I just ordered this week from newegg.

ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 DDR3 AMD 790GX ATX AMD Motherboard

LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black Model GH22LP20 (I would just use my existing one, but it's failing)

Crucial 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model CT25664BA1339  I ordered 4 of these.

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Modular LED Power Supply

AMD Phenom II X4 810 2.6GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor Model HDX810WFGIBOX

COOLER MASTER Elite 330 RC-330-KKN1-GP Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

ARCTIC COOLING ACF64LP 60mm CPU Cooler for low profile PC

PNY XLR8 GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB PCIe 2.0

I'll be using an existing pair of 500GB hard drives. Till I get to taking apart my existing computer, I cannot recall what they are off hand.

I know there is a lot better hardware out there to be bought, but I was working on a budget.

Any opnions, Suggestions?

It is a great game.:P

OMG Monster Rancher! Totally love that game. Still think 2 is the best. Been wanting to play 4 lately, but I can't find the disc. T.T

I kind of understand what you mean. I think I spend more time then anything playing an emulated copy of harvest moon, that or monster rancher.

I was huge into PC games during the 90's, but then began to decline with them as it required a constant update of a computer. That's why I like the consoles, because as long as you have the console and the game, you're good to go, no matter how old it is. I do have a few emulators on my computer, but they're for older games, like arcade and gameboy games. I think the only "real" games I play on the PC is Sims, Spore, Diablo and World of Warcraft. I really wish I had an old Windows 95-era computer to play all my old games on. Especially Mechwarrior 2. But yeah, console games is where it's at for me. I have 271 games!
