So far I'm up to £160 ($266) with my biggest expense being InFAMOUS:SS, although if you include my PS4 Console I'm sitting at £560 ($931).

This year I plan on buying:

  • Octodad: £12
  • TLOU (PS4): £40
  • Watch Dogs: £50
  • Destiny: £50
  • The Evil Within: £50
  • Alien Isolation: £50
  • The Order 1886: £50
  • Dying Light: £50
  • The Division: £50

Making my overall total: £562 ($935)
Including console: £962 ($1600)

To Be fair I don't really see that as a massive amount considering it's my main pass-time. A lot of my friends are football season ticket holders and must spend at least £2000 a season watching their team. For me if you convert the length of time/enjoyment I'll be getting from those games then it's very cheap IMO.

Quite fancy one each if I had the money to burn. Imagine having a controller colour coordinated to match your play-through style. You could use your blue one for good/paragon play through of InFAMOUS:SS (or the new Mass Effect), then switch to red for your evil/renegade play-through.

Both look pretty sweet but the price of controllers are getting a bit rich for my blood. Gone are the days of being able to pick up a controller for £10. Now they retail at £60.

Finally bought Flower as my first triple cross buy (PS4, PS3, Vita) and it's a complete blast to play. Vita screen controls are a bit naff so switched to motion and it works like a dream.

Looks fantastic. Only problem is my 6 year old is now obsessed with the game and won't let me play on it much. Probably my top "That Game Company" game. Surpassing Journey IMHO.

I still have Farcry 3, Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2 and Bioshock Infinite of late to play.

You should not keep Far Cry 3 waiting! Great game!

I've already completed it on physical copy but gonna re-play on digital. Same as Tomb Raider and Bioshock. All 3 are top, top games.

Average at around 1-2 hours a night if I can Mon-Fri. Weekend can vary depending on shifts at work for me and my wife. I can play as much as 10 hours on a weekend if home alone yet can go weeks without playing much at all. I'd say at Most 22 hours, at least 2 hours (and boy do I hate those weeks).

Gaming is my hobby/main pastime but is also the way I like to relax after a stressful day at work.

I'm 33 now and no longer drink or go out as much (maybe for the odd meal every so often). I don't smoke or do any recreational drugs. The cinema doesn't interest me as much as it did, I don't watch TV (Only decent series on Netflix) and don't read very often. So when I have the time, and spare money, I love nothing better than spending my hard earned cash on systems/games and immersing myself in the many varied worlds which developers have provided me with.

Oh and it's hella-fun.

Not the greatest month for PS+ IMO

Mercenary kings looks a lot of fun and is a free PS4 game so can't really complain

PES14 is a bit meh

Sly Cooper I'm quite excited about

Hotline Miami I've already got

Moto GP13 again a bit meh

Guess you always do get these mediocre months from time to time. They are always far outweighed by some fantastic ones though. I still have Farcry 3, Tomb Raider, Borderlands 2 and Bioshock Infinite of late to play.

@hrt_rulz01 I agree but I just think it's impossible at the minute given the PS4 still only has a dozen or so full games out there. I think it's gonna be indies for the next year or so at least.

@ShoTTyMcNaDeS: Lately I've developed a nasty habit of starting tons of games, both new and old, and just never finishing them. It's quite embarrassing. Here's a list of the games I've started but have yet to finish:

  • Skyrim
  • Dragon's Dogma
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Kingdoms of Amalur
  • Dark Souls
  • InFamous: SS (not had much time on it though)
  • Killzone: Shadow Fall
  • Knack
  • MGS4
  • Portal 2
  • Tearaway
  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  • Dead Island: Riptide

That's just off the top of my head. I'm sure there's more. I think I's normally due to time constraints. I just can't pump 80 hours + into many games so tend to just finish ones which have 20 hour campaigns. I generally hit around the 4 hour mark in most games and my interest just starts to wane. I also still have unopened copies of Batman: Arkham Origins, AC: Black Flag plus Burial at Sea (1 & 2) and TLOU: Left Behind to start as well. I really do need more time in my life to game.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution gives you numerous choices on how to play through the game. You can augment your character to be whatever you'd like them to be. You can go lethal/none lethal, Sneak through without killing anyone/kill everyone, Morally just/a complete dick. The choice is yours.

The only downside is the pre-baked endings which kind of ruin the decisions you've made during the game. You do get a choice of 4 buttons to press though.

I found out my current gf has a ps3 and i want to start playing games with her. What games have long play time, is good, and nice story that we can play together when we're at different houses. The only game i can think of is Borderlands and some fighting games but looking for more RPG/shooter based.

No CoD/Battlefield please. Want long hours of playing of just me and gf.

Thanks in advance.

You could try:

  • Resident Evil 5 (very cheap and lots of fun 2 player)
  • Borderlands 1/2 (as mentioned)
  • Dead Island is great co op.
  • Resistance 3 has some amazing campaign co op
  • Trine 2 is a great co op game
  • FEAR 3 is very good and a full campaign
  • Untold Legends (If you can find 2 copies)
