Bombcast! depending on which airplane you use normally you can watch movies, plus most blu-rays have a digital copy for your iphone. Sleep, and talk to the person next to you if the aren't a complete slob.
My dad just ignores video-games, for instance he says May-reo instead of mario. I've tried several times with my mom but she hates m-rated games and r-rated movies, so all i can get her to really play is wii sports. But i got my sister, with mario party-mario kart-lego games-smash bros- and she actually beat paper mario. although she hates anything hard :/
I've sold games to gamestop since I was twelve, although then it was EB games (they're the same, right?) I guess it just depends on the store, maybe it helped I went to school with some of the guys who worked there. But it says M 17+ on the game, and tweens always find ways to get them anyway. Doesn't make since if you had a driver's license or something to prove your age.
This is something I've been thinking about for a long time, will there be a next generation of consoles? Right now, each console has it's own niche. PS3 has some japanese-ass games like Katamari and Demon's Souls plus great first-party games. The 360 is home to shooters like Gears of War and Halo, and the Wii is family-friendly but not without some good hardcore games (if you don't believe me, go play Madworld and No More Heroes), and the PC has a huge community and has great strategy games and steam. Graphics are better than ever. And with games already having release dates in 2012, what is going to change? I think Kinect will fail miserably, and Move will do better but still be forgotten due to the high price point and it's basically a wii-motion plus. So, I pose the question: will there be another console generation? Besides 3-D and maybe an HD Wii (which nintendo will never do), there are no real improvements I can think of currently. I think that there will, but only because Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo all need to make money. What would you want in the next generation?
"No, not really. When i was younger i didn't really look at reviews, just bought loads of cheaper games i liked the cover of. Now i'm older, I generally only buy games that critically acclaimed because i don't have time for poop. "
Same with me; so many crap n64 and gamecube games sitting in the basement *sigh*
