Title says it all!

Are there any fellow gamers in the NYCM crowd??? I was thinking yesterday how cool it could be to play some games and talk about these competitions in one fell swoop. Or, hell, just play games together!

Whether it's Destiny 2, Civilizations, Overwatch, ANYTHING. 

I'm on Steam (godeicher) and PSN (Zblugg). Feel free to add me! Let's conquer [add target of conquest] together!

Z.

I love the Legend of Zelda. But I haven't played it in forever. I think the ultimate one is Ocarina of Time, but I'm also a huge fan of Majora's Mask. The Wind Waker's pretty cool too, although I've never gotten all the way through it. I played a little of Twilight Princess, but then I gave up. (I don't have great manual dexterity, and it takes me forever to play all the way through. Sometimes I never make it, even if I try--a hard bad guy to beat, or whatever.) 

Sorry I'm unfamiliar with the games and the game sites you mentioned!! Oh well!!

Hahaha! No biggie! And I could've guessed you were either a fan of the Zelda series. That, or a fortune teller. LOL

Breath of the Wild is great, or so I hear. I've not owned a Nintendo system since the N64, and the last Zelda I played was "A Link to the Past", on SNES. But I realize that's my biggest flaw... Wink

If you want an interestingly creative read, go check out Ben has Drowned. It's a creepypasta (I know, I know) about Majora's Mask. I found it inventive and entertaining! It has videos, too!

HA HA HA! LOL Funny you should mention it--I do love Zelda games, but I'm a fortune teller too. I mean, I can't claim to be compellingly psychic, but I try!! I love doing Tarot readings!! (If anyone wants one, let me know! Madame Zelda is in the house.) 

Actually, the N64 made the best Zelda games, although you didn't have them. Come now to the Wii, and I can't master the dual handheld units to save myself. 

What's creepy pasta? Sounds like something Mother would cook. I'll have to check it out!!

A "creepypasta" is a fan-fiction, essentially, meant ot entertain and scare. A lot of them are just... meh, but some do work quite well. Ben Drowned was one of the good ones, IIRC. There's even a podcast devoted to Creepypastas, appropriately titled Creepy (decent, not game-changing, good to listen to while raking leaves, I suppose).

Here's Ben Drowned:  http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/BEN_Drowned " rel="nofollow - http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/BEN_Drowned  ;

@Zblugg & Zelda -I used to play World or Warcraft. Jhill is my gnome warrior's name. The other games & platforms you've mentioned are things I recognize from my son's gaming. I hope that doesn't mean I'm old enough to be your mom, too!

I doubt it, but you never know. Let's just say I'm more than halfway from 30 to 40... (but feeling 13 most of the time...)

HA HA HA! I'm 40 myself, but I'm a total kid at heart. 

I tried World of Warcraft one day and gave up. I was terrible at it!! Such a massacre.

I don't have the time to devote to this between family and work and writing.

BUT - had to step in and say it was pretty sweet to see Civilization mentioned. I loved that game. Long live Sid Meier.

Great!! We're one big, happy family! 

Yeah, I was raised on Atari, first of all, until I was around eight. Then it was original Mario and Duck Hunt. Then, over the next several years, Mario 2, Mario 3, and occasionally Adventure Island. It was called Hudson's Adventure Island, because Hudson was the manufacturer, but we thought the main character was Hudson, so that's what we called him. LOL

Tetris, anyone? Nothing soothes my mind as much as arranging the Tetrominoes into neat lines.

Are you plaing Destiny 2 on PC or console? I'm on PC.

PS4, good sir.

Though I'm otherwise very much an activist for the PC Master Race, I didn't have the machine to play Destiny 2 when it came out. Now I do. That 1070 Ti I got my hands on gives me sweet, sweet moving pictures.

Also, I'm HOPING you're old enough to have played Lemmings... LOL

*raises hand*
I haven't played Destiny since Bungie decided to lock players out of content when they didn't buy one of the many expansions.. It was fun warlock bombing a group of players and being called a cheater though

Battlefield is where I go for multi-player now.

They always find a way to mess up Destiny, it seems.

Destiny 2 just got the update mistreatment, too. 

Oh well!
