PSN still down.

However, I can still play my games just fine, because I haven't bought into the "wonderful" digital future.

I have nothing but digital games. I can play them all fine.

God damnit, alright that's it, never using my credit card on a playstation system again. Hopefully none of that stuff was exposed but still, not even worth the risk.

DDOS attacks have nothing to do with credit card information. This could easily happen to any service (and has been happening to other services like Blizzard and League of Legends)

I'm still offline in New Jersey. I better not have to replay all of The Swapper again. The PS4 has to store trophy data locally just like the PS3 did, right?

I've got trophies to sync.

Absolutely. I loved Metro 2033, and Last Light was my favorite game in the year of its release. I already have both the PS3 and PC version of Last Light and still intend to get the PS4 version.

I played it when it first released on PC, and haven't felt the need to pay any more money for the console versions. I'd probably try it out if it were free or even heavily discounted for owners of other versions.

There is no "I have it on PC and am not buying a console version because the PC version is objectively superior" option.

Don't come at me with a "Not if you want couch co-op/controller!" response. That may be a feature that you want that sells you on the console version, but it doesn't mean the PC version isn't still the better game up and down.

I just don't understand why PC fanboys feel the need to open their big mouths and make all of us look socially inept and self-important. That's not an option in the poll because it was specifically about people who ARE buying the most recent iteration of the game.

I'm not a PC fanboy by any means, I can just recognize that the PC version of Diablo is a far better experience.

Again, if someone prefers to play it on the couch or with a controller, that's totally fine, but that doesn't make it a better game from an objective standpoint; it just means that, to them, it's worth losing some other features to gain couch co-op or controller support.

Also, the poll doesn't say "this is only for people who are buying the most recent iteration" because the OP specifically says "Just curious how many people will be buying this for the second time or more," not "I am only looking for answers from people who are." My response is "I am a person who is not buying this for the second time or more."

Whatever you need to tell yourself, man. I'm just trying to explain to you that when you say things like that you come off like a dick.

You should try examining why you die. That's kind of the key to the entire subgenre.

Also, stop buying games you know you don't like.

@the_shiniest_meat_bicycle: I'm thinking Fallout 3 might be an ok starting point for him. Though the plot isn't great, Fallout has a great sci-fi universe, so he'll probably be into it.

Even though it is a 3D dual-stick kind of game it provides the option to swap between first- and third-person on the fly, and a different perspective may help his control issues. Also, the VATS system's auto-targeting will alleviate a lot of pressure in combat situations.

The game's difficulty is highly adjustable, and can be changed at any time. If he finds himself in a difficult situation that he simply cannot deal with, he can just go into the menu and make the game more manageable for himself.

Bethesda's games are very mod-friendly, and have a huge selection of mods. I imagine there are plug-ins out there that can be used to customize his experience to better suit his gaming fluency. You may need to install these for him.

Another plus side to this is that it would be a good way to ease him into FPS controls, meaning it may condition him for playing more action-oriented games like Borderlands, which you seem to be into. You may be able to play games together that way.

Why is your father interested in video games?
