Hell yah! I've never even owned a console.
But I haven't had time to play a game since last spring. Probably a bad sign growing up sucks. Last game I tried was that new sim city game. Unfortunately so buggy that I had to give up. Usually I just play FPS though.
Back in the day I ran the largest command and conquer red alert modding website. Über nerd, I know.

I used to game alot on PC. Now with work and kids, I don't get to enjoy playing as much. Still got a sweet rig though!

Steam is having their holiday sale right now and I've picked up a few games.

Sadly on PC (I don't game really much at all through summer, only through winter months)
So now I have BF4 (CTE only), Kerbal Space Program (not really multiplayer though but still fun), BF3, Spintires (SO MUCH FUN.. what's more fun than offroading Russian military trucks in the mud?), Borderlands 2, and about to jump on Euro Truck Simulator 2 with the far east addon. Oh and Garry's Mod (finally).

Bought GMod, Spintires and ETS2 for like $16.. why not? lol

That is cheap, but I would say no because Steam is a steaming pile of crap. I will never buy a game that uses it. Last time I decided I wanted to play a game, it's was Mw3 ( which is also crap but that is another story) and I tried to launch the game but steam couldn't connect to its server so I couldn't play, not even single player offline.

It's is sad that pirates who download ripped games get a better quality product than those who pay. ( back in the day that meant no need to always put CDs in, now it means no need to run background DRM bullshit like steam, uplay, etc)

I used to hate steam back like 10 years ago, now I quite like it. It keeps everything very organized, easy to find, and those sales though...

Definitely had a 180 of an opinion when I redownloaded it a few months ago. (but again, I'm comparing it to what was steam in 2004 or so lol)

So over the past .. less than 3 days I've put in 10 hours into Spintires haha

It's definitely fun, it definitely needs VOIP, and playing online is much more enjoyable, just need to find friends to play it with.

I found the big trucks, made some smoke.



discovered I could take longer loads of logs with the bigger truck (after failing several attempts with smaller trucks and medium size loads and.. getting stuck in rivers, mud, and worse... tipping over entirely (it's happened about 5 times now, it's an awful feeling)



On the Coast map, the long logs form a bridge.. it's insane.



Last night while playing on Volcano map I was removing map cloaks, was coming down a HUGE hill, and due to the awkward camera in this game didn't see a tree in front of me, even while doing everything I could to take this hill slow.
Too steep + tree = floating.
I'm not entirely proud.

Looks interesting. And because it looks interesting, the only logical solution is for me to purchase the game myself.

do it DO IT DO IT DO IT

On a serious note though, for as cheap as it was (I think the price just went up though), it's a phenomenal amount of fun for how limiting the game can be (that said it isn't really because it's HUGELY moddable)

I'm about to jump online and play some more lol
