    Post I'm going to be holding off on buying video games this year.

    Hey guys, just decided to share with you all that I'm going to be cutting back on Video Game/Entertainment purchases this year, and as such might not have much to talk about around here (although that doesn't stop some people from posting).

    Now, before I say anything else, let me state first that this has absolutely nothing to do with Nintendo's current state, or the most recent direct. I still think Nintendo is doing respectably well enough at this point. And this also has nothing to with anyone or anything on this forum. I think you guys are a pretty cool bunch.

    The reason I am cutting down on video game buying is due to travel. My brother is retiring from the Air Force this year. Him and his family have an RV Bus that they'll want to take to places across the USA. Needless to say, I'll definitely tag along for those trips, and it'll be good to have money saved up for them.

    I hope you enjoy your trips, man. The good thing about the Switch is that you can easily take it with you on said trips. Gaming is an expensive hobby. I've always said that the people "winning", are those who decide to buy a PS3/360/Wii U now and buy a PS4/XB1/Switch whenever the next batch of new consoles release. That way you don't have to wait for long delays and you have a large library to play now at a very affordable cost. Unfortunately for me, that wouldn't work because I have to have the newest consoles.

    First, thank your brother for his service. Second, Nintendo’s current line up isn’t getting anyone excited. Third, buy a Dreamcast. They are cheap and the games are excellent and free if you don’t mind the piracy. Fourth, have a good time on your trip. Fifth don’t be a stranger. Good luck hippie!

    You forgot to say take a bath.
    wouldn't you want MarioFan to stay clean during his roadtrip?

    I for one am not following suit and will continue to purchase more video games.

    Have fun on your trip, man. But don't let not buying games keep you from coming around. I never play games at all, and I still post on here 100 times a week.

    Not sure if you have a Switch but, if you don't, it's well worth the investment in my opinion!

    Or, for gaming on the cheap, you can get a gently used 2DS with a handful of good games for under $100...just to have something to take with you on the road to scratch that gaming itch that we all get every once in a while!

    Safe travels!

    Thanks for the kind regards. My Switch and the current library I have for it will keep me well occupied. And I’m not quitting video games for good, I’m just cutting back buying anything more.

    If you have a backlog, I don't think you'll be missing all that much. Just think, when you do get around to picking up games that you're not super interested in, most of them will be a fraction of the price you probably otherwise would have paid.

    You'll still be able to participate in discussions here too. It's really only the in-depth threads on specific games that you won't be able to fully participate in and they're definitely not the majority of threads created here.

    Good to hear. I rip on you a bit but it’s meant in good fun like calling Woody old. As Death pointed out, many topics on here are pretty general in nature, so ya don’t need to be up on the newest flash in the pan game to chime in.

    Also, I wasn’t kidding about buying a Dreamcast. It’s awesome and it’s dirt cheap. I can give you pointers if you’d like.

    my motto is "you can't take it with you"

    so spend your money now. you can always be buried with your switch. plus, if some poor, lonely teenager really wants a system, he will come dig you up so you get to be close to a zombie. there's even a chance you can make whoopy one last time.

    overall, it's win/win/win - you get to play the games you want, nobody fights over your money, you get to be necrobumped and you get one last bone boner/stiff stiffy/dead head.

    The cancer rate and asthma and stillborn kids is abnormally high where I grew up. The factories weren’t using the proper scrubbers so carcinogenic materials and toxic metals saturated the water table. So cancer is pretty likely. Sorry to bum you out. How do you think I feel?

    At least buy some multiplayer games, so you can play on the way in the RV van. I think there are some moderately cheap ones on the eShop. And get a mobile modem so you can play anywhere.

    I've already played Mario Kart 8 DX in the Bus with my nephew. Quite fun.

    In theory mods should be coming after me by now for virtually calling you a fan(boy), just saying
    I think you intentionally chose that name so a loophole could be created, and my gawd that is the best thing that could happen to the forums since the one time I actually said something worth laughing at

    I know. I wish Spidey could come in here and spice things up, but he's busy getting ready for some Infinity War.

    Hey guys, just decided to share with you all that I'm going to be cutting back on Video Game/Entertainment purchases this year, and as such might not have much to talk about around here (although that doesn't stop some people from posting).

    Now, before I say anything else, let me state first that this has absolutely nothing to do with Nintendo's current state, or the most recent direct. I still think Nintendo is doing respectably well enough at this point. And this also has nothing to with anyone or anything on this forum. I think you guys are a pretty cool bunch.

    The reason I am cutting down on video game buying is due to travel. My brother is retiring from the Air Force this year. Him and his family have an RV Bus that they'll want to take to places across the USA. Needless to say, I'll definitely tag along for those trips, and it'll be good to have money saved up for them.
    this sounds like a solid choice.

    I myself made a similar decision late last year. no more buying games until the current ones i have are finished (and I am down to 4). Instead I have chosen to go outside and be a part of the world, and to only play games when I am inside and I have nothing else to do.

    I have to admit it is not easy, I really wanna play my games and I really wanna get the trophies. but to help alleviate this "Stress" I am playing on the xbox and playing one of my all time favorite games, Fallout 4.

    good luck mate.

    Buy a Dreamcast. SEGA is awesome. All the cool kids are smokin.... uh, I mean seriously you can save money and still buy games. Look at retro consoles, VC, Retro pi, whatever.

    If you jump jump off the hype train of needing to own the current flavor of the month gaming is really cheap, like Hbeb’s mum. And you won’t catch the crabby patties either.

    I said earlier that I wouldn't necessarily say no to a Dreamcast at some point.

    Right now, travel expenses are priority #1.

    Now that Labo is coming out, aMarioFan64 is having to backtrack on what he said here.
