Having picked one up before Christmas I can now say I am officially hooked. My poor wife has become an Xbox widow and the kids haven’t eaten for a week due to my choosing between buying food or Gears of War.
I’ve played the odd game in the past whether on a console or PC but never really got into it. I’m sure like my kids I’ve got A.D.D and therefore a game needs to grab me from the first seconds of play and keep hold for a decent amount of time. So far the two games to deliver on this are Gears of War and Project Gotham Racing 3.
If you’ve read this far you’re probably wondering where the eBay reference comes from. Well, Xbox live has achievements and eBay has feedback. Both of which I’ve been/am a victim of pursuing with an unhealthy relentlessness.
