I wondering if any of you guys still get video games for your birthday. For me, I only get money from my parents, but I recently started a tradition to give it to my brother...So yeah....Other than that, I do order games for myself as a present for my birthday. For instance, today is my birthday and I recently ordered Ouendan 2 as a present from myself to myself. Does anyone else get games on their birthday from others or do they resort in buying themselves a game during that day?

  • Nah, I haven't got games for my birthday in a lonnnnnnng time. I actually make sure nobody gets me anything. ;) Although I may, of course, occasionally buy myself a game. But I usually don't buy gifts for myself, per say.

    Yeah... I got an economic Sim called Wallet (Leather version) and S&M Season 1 (This one from myself)
  • Naw, not really...I get cash and use it to buy games (and the occasional "unexpected" item like a Bo-Bobo DVD or a remote-controlled Mario Kart)

    that's pretty much the only way i get any games, got a bunch of wii games from my dad and wife last month :)
  • I like to still ask for games sometimes from family members... but mostly I get money, which can be converted into video games through a process called "buying".

    I don't receive many games for my birthday anymore, because I'm not as big of a gamer girl as I used to be. My mom and sister know I love the Karaoke Revolution games, so I usually get them for Christmas when a new one comes out. :D

    Nobody gets me video games for my birthday, I guess because it's like giving a haircut to a barber, but it's not uncommon for people to give me BOARD games. And I like them.
  • only once, along time ago, and I remember that game was Phantasmagoria

    What's your favorite board game?

    As a kid, I loved playing Sorry and Mouse Trap. The last board game I played was when I visited my 5 year old niece (we played Disney Scene It.)

    :)
  • I still have never got a copy of Phantasmagoria. I read about it in InterAction magazine when they were making it and after it came out, but I never got the darn thing. I think I will go check Ebay and get it, finally, after like 14 years.
