    but he LOVES the game....he won't get off my ps3 now and is officially addicted. i know most of you out there won't care less about my words but i thought it was a funny little story and wanted to share it
    I love it!! I remember when I got my Dad to play Ring King on Nintendo. Man, that was one of the most fun filled days of my life.

    My Dad is 56 and HE got ME into PC gaming back in the 90's

    Medal Of Honour AA, Battlefield 1942, Operation Flashpoint, Duke Nukem, Half- Life, Quake, all played because he bought them!

    I since got him into Oblivion, Fallout, Bioshock and Crysis, he also enjoyed watching me play MGS 4 as he half remembered the first three titles when i used to play them.

    My dad got a little addicted to CoD 4 before back when I used to play PC and he'd watch me. Tried to get better than me, never gonna happen

    Although on the complete polar opposite he's walked past me playing MGS3, watched five minutes and asked me what movie it is

    He just loves killin, especially zombies, that's why he's favourite game's are resident evil

    He'd probably just go around with the shotgun in bioshock blowin things away and forget about plasmids and ask me to do the hacking for him

    that's so funny you would say that cause that's exactly what my dad does. i have to sit close by and be ready to take the controller when he starts a hack lol

    lmao! Damn, that's pretty beast . Most my dad ever played games was Back in the day when I was a kid with super nintendo.. the Duck hunt game . Then as got older and had PS1, he played the old wrestling games. Doesn't play anything anymore, can't really see .

    ;D The good old days. Really nice to think about still.

    Something similar just happened to me. I got my little sister who is 11 years old to try out LBP2. I played the first 2 worlds with her and then she was on her own. She beat the whole game and it is not like LBP2 is a super easy game. There are actually some pretty challenging parts.

    The only time I have ever seen my dad play video games was back in the SNES days....He played me in NFL Quarterback Club and killed me like 70-3....he never played another game again..I guess he knows how to quit while he's ahead
