Nobody really talks to me here :foreveralone:
I don't have much time for gaming, but I dabble in Wii and on Steam.
Plants vs. Zombies always relieves any possible stress in my life!
I really like puzzle and physics games, like World of Goo.

Isn't it obvious? (I work here)

Hiyas! Name is Kenny although I usually go by the username "Dval" on games and forums. Also a Bestbuy employee, but I dabble more with the Home Theater aspect instead of gaming.
Personally, I love every gaming platform although I mainly stick to the PC market. Been stuck in the MMO quagmire for about 6 years with WoW. Gave Star Wars a shot but wasn't really thrilled with it. Skyrim is an incredible game...but way too addicting. Logged about 100 hours in 2 weeks...while working full time -_-. Favorite old games included Double Dragon on the original Nintendo and Streets of Rage 2 on the Sega Genesis. Love pretty much any RPG or strategy type games out there. C&C, Warcraft 2, anything Final Fantasy, and Xenogears (best game of all time)!
WoW is my only active game at the moment with 85s on Shadow Council, Runetotem, Moon Guard, and Eldre'thalas. Mainly active on Moon Guard, but pretty much every person in my home theater department has reactivated their accounts and will be playing on Eldre'thalas.
We all live around the Fort Campbell, KY/TN area.
Generally, if I'm not at work, playing tennis, or entrenched in anime, you'll find me on Warcrack.

Yeah, I don't have a super computer or anything, but I've upgrade my graphics card (Radeon 6750), power supply (650 watts), and the tower case itself to provide more cooling. Have always loved the controls of PC versus consoles so that's why I mainly stick with it. That, and flying Warthogs, snipers in the sky with auto-headshot, and other hacks drove me out of playing Halo :/
PC definitely costs more to get up and running. Figure that you could start with a base model for $400-500 and be okay, but you're better off getting upgrades, building from scratch, or just purchasing one of the advanced models with a built-in "good" graphics card and better power supply.

Thanks, Mariel. Got 3 brothers and two of them do XBOX gaming as well. One is a Modern Warfare addict (twin). Older and younger brother tend to play Warcraft with me as well when they're not working. Nearly purchased the 4th XBOX 360 for our bachelor pad back on Black Friday...scary.

Welcome to the Gaming boards Dval!
To echo Mariel, it's good to have a PC gamer representing here, not to mention another Best Buy employee joining the conversation. That rocks. I look forward to sharing some threads with you!

Hello. My name is Blake and I’m a gameaholic. “Hi Blake,” everyone says in unison.
Let’s just say that I started as that kid that sat way too close to the television resulting in the need for glasses in the first grade. In middle school I added to my coolness by having to wear headgear for braces and my glasses at the same time. I started gaming young and I’ve been gaming ever since. Loved every minute of it!
I’ve played almost every system. I was a Nintendo fanatic from regular Nintendo games such as Mario Bros, Track and Field with the Power Pad, and Punch Out. Then there was the N64. Mario 64, Mario Kart and Goldeneye are still some of my favorite games to play.
Now, I’m a Playstation gamer. I’ve tried all the systems and the Playstation just gets me. I’m a fan of the original Resident Evil and I’ll admit that part when the dog’s break the windows still scares me. My favorite games are Madden, 2k Sports, Fallout 3, Grand Theft Auto 1,2,3,4 and every one they ever make, Max Payne series, Heavy Rain, Hitman series and the Uncharted series. I wish I was Nathan Drake and sometimes call my friends Sully without them understanding the reference.
That’s me! I’m legend-….wait for it... and I hope you're not lactose intolerant because the second half of that word is DARY! LEGENDARY!
