    @kilroyandy: I empathize with your brother, because I'm in a similar boat. I've bought games I have zero interest in purely out of peer pressure, and I've given myself a hard time for not being as goo...

    Is it weird to buy something you remember wanting as a kid, but never had, just to appease your nostalgia for wanting to buy it? For example, I never had an N64 (or a NES/SNES, or any of those older ...
