    get a used Xbone and replace it with my HD.

    In theory that sounds like a good idea, but the problem is that most systems from the PS3/Xbox 360 generation forward have put a differing design hard drive in their systems so that they couldn't simply be taken out and put in a different machine. It was a bullshit move to try to force consumers to have to buy new systems when something broke, thus increasing their profits. I know for a fact that the PS3 was like that, because I've tried repairing several that had hard drive crashes, and the hard drives were all physically different to the point that the new ones couldn't even go into the console, let alone be installed into it. So you may have to bite the bullet and lose all your data, or find a tech whiz and see if they can fix your Xbox and save your data.

    Your horizons will definitely broaden here. I would venture to say that is fact for everyone. As for the backwards compatibility, I know the PS5 has full backwards compatibility with all PS4 games save 6 titles.

    • Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma Volume One
    • Hitman Go: Definitive Edition
    • Just Deal With It!
    • Robinson: The Journey
    • Shadwen
    • We Sing

    Those titles haven't seemed to be much of an issue to most gamers. The only possible exception I could see would be Hitman.

  3. You can't forget that IF Adolf gets back in the White House, he will never leave. The 22nd amendment will be a distant memory, and the constitution will be the first bit of toilet paper he uses to wipe his fat ass as soon as he takes a shit. All while flushing more documents down the toilet as well. We will be under a full fledged dictatorship no different than Iraq and North Korea. When he FINALLY dies, it will most likely be Don Jr who assumes power. I don't think it would be Eric or Ivanka. It damn sure wouldn't be Tiffany. We will be under a fascist regime run by full fledged Nazis. They would make Hitler proud. Anyone who is not a straight, cisgender, white, xtian, republiKKKLanazi will be sent to camps to be executed, no different than 1940's Germany. I'm definitely dead because I'm not straight nor am I xtian. I'm a Satanic lesbian.

    This is why I've been talking to Canada seeking asylum.

  4. Things come up that take a toll. @DC doesn't always have something for people to bid on. Until he has something (such as a steam code for a free game) there won't be any auctions. He gets these things as promotions from different sources, but they're not always sending out such things. So all anyone can do is wait.

  5. Playing several hours per day, might not be a sign of addiction. For example take someone in my situation. I'm on disability because I can't work. Thus, I have nothing but empty time. I need to find something to do with that time. When I get up in the morning, if I intend to get on RDR2, I usually end up playing it until I go to bed. Some would call that addiction, while others would just say that I'm just playing the hand I was dealt.

    Like I said, gaming addiction can often be a gray area.

  6. Who here can say that their all-time favorite game has changed? I can definitely say that. For the last several decades, my all-time favorite game was Zelda OoT. I thought it was the perfect game. Now, to no ones surprise, my all-time favorite game is RDR2. The game simply blows me away. There is so much to do in the game that it's mind blowing. There are secrets that very few have probably found. Items like the fluorite and ammolite, shrunken head, and gold shield just to name a few. There are also encounters like the giant and the devil. Then there are the challenges. Riding from Strawberry to St Denis in 9 minutes without touching water. Killing 5 flying birds from a moving train. And a hell of a lot more. There is so much to do and discover that I haven't found a game that can match. I've tried Skyrim and Witcher 3, but they just couldn't get their hooks in me.

    Play AC Odyssey and stop flirting with Assassins Creed. Play what you love in Greek life and afterlife. Please. Stop beating around the bush. Play Odyssey. I’m thinking you might be afraid of living in that world, the world where maybe you find strong associations with. 

    Uhhhhhh….

    I DO play Assassins Creed. AC3 is what initially got me into the series. Just because there’s one that I haven’t gotten to yet doesn’t mean I don’t play the franchise. I haven’t played every Zelda game, but I still play the hell out of the series. I haven’t played every entry in the Dark Pictures Anthology yet, but I still love it.

    So just because I don’t rave about it all the time doesn’t mean I don’t play it.

  8. If tablet games count, then the last game I played was Zen Color. It's a color by numbers game that I find really relaxing. If tablet games don't count, then (surprise surprise!) it would be RDR2. I played it for a couple hours yesterday. I've finished off the entire game including Epilogue II. So now I'm doing challenges. It's 4:52AM right now, and I'm planning on getting on once I finish a couple things on the computer.

  9. Yes it can definitely be a form of therapy. If you're having an issue, and a certain game lets you express your issue at the time, it helps relieve some of that stress. For example, I have an explosive temper with no fuse to speak of, which has led to the rage disorder that I'm currently taking medication for. When I get to that point, I play Hatred because of the material. Your point in the game is to kill as many innocent civilians and law enforcement as possible. That's it. When I get angry to the point that I want to kill every person I see, I play the game. That's just one specific example. Another one would be that gaming is often an escape from the real world. You leave your stress behind you, and after a few hours, it's possibly that you could be just fine. It's not a guarantee, it's only a possibility.

    There are dozens of ways gaming can be therapeutic. But it's pretty individualized and situation specific.

  10. Gaming addiction can sometimes be a bit of a gray area. Because it's difficult to distinguish addiction to gaming or passionate to gaming. Also most people don't give things like this the attention it might merit. There was the Korean(?) boy that died after playing 51 hours straight. That was addiction. I often play from the time I wake up until I go to bed. But I also burn out. Some would call that addiction. Also, as @Shagger mentioned, the symptoms you mentioned are prevalent in any form of addiction. Alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, sex, and shopping to name just few. People tend to look at possible gaming addiction the same way people who go to NA meetings look at someone being there for smoking marijuana. Or the way people at AA meetings look at someone being there for drinking nonalcoholic beer. Until there are scientific studies, gaming addiction is going to continue to be swept under the rug.

    And this was because "getting cornholed" is something that might happen to you in prison if you crossed paths with Bubba, lol.

    Rim jobs happen outside prison too. I know people that are into that sort of thing. Personally, I’m not playing tongue hockey with anyone’s asshole. 

  12. I can't say I've been personally affected, but then again I only use brand controllers for my systems. From NES to PS5. The reason for that is because every time I've used a third party controller, even if they're brand new, they always either didn't work right from the start, or started fucking up shortly after buying them. Whereas the name brand controllers last a long time. I've also never had a name brand controller quit on me, except one time.

    I don't doubt that Microsoft will do something like this, because third party electronics makes the target product lose money. Despite Microsoft being a multi billion dollar company, they're always reaching for that last nickel.

    Do you have to be in the same home and on the same WiFi network as the PS5? Or can you take it anywhere, like on vacation?

    Great question! Going by what I'm seeing, it looks like it has to be played in the home. Like it's something that links to your PS5, but instead can only show you what your PS5 is doing. If you were wanting to play a game on it but want to do it from bed, you would have to find it, put your disc (if you didn't go strictly digital) get the machine booted up and logged in and then play. It's a lot of hassle if you ask me.

  14. Cornhole and thongs are 2 things that changed their definition which bugs the hell out of me. Cornhole used to bean asshole. Thongs used to be those cheap foam sandals that you would typically wear to the beach. Now thongs are butt floss. I'll post a pic of them, but to get back on topic, I made a beanbag set to play what is now called cornhole. It's not hard in any way. Just find someone who can sew to make the bags, and get some wood to make the game targets. But don't call it fucking cornhole. What's next? Is "car" suddenly going to mean comb?

    This is a thong:
