The "Introduce Yerselves" thread told me one thing very clearly: videogames and cricket fans have a large enough overlap for this thread to be a thing.
First, a none-too-subtle plug. I do a videogames forum thing, mostly Nintendo. It's in my signature. Do check it out.
Right: what do you play, and what are you playing at the moment? I'm a big Nintendo fan, bought all their consoles since the N64. I'm currently playing Yoshi's Woolly World on-off: it's a standard charming Nintendo platformer with woolly graphics, and it's adorable.
Yoshi's woolly world is such a great game! Seeing you say you've had all the the nintendo consoles, what was your favourite Gamecube game?
I play an awful lot of different games. I play a fair bit on my PS3 still, just because Call of Duty 4 is my favourite game ever made and I have Don Bradman on that. I also play on my computer through Steam, mainly Day Of Defeat & Counter Strike, but for the most part i'm on my Xbox One playing Battlefield 4/Madden/Fifa/COD.
At the moment I'm playing Counter Strike Global Offensive & Call Of Duty advanced warfare. Counter Strike is so skill based, I'm really just trying to get to a higher division in competitive. The Call Of Duty franchise is going backwards and i'm not even a little bit excited about Black Ops 3 (I hate Treyarch other than World At War), but sadly i'm quite good at call of duty so I play it anyway and find myself in the top divisions of competitive and have won a few competitions.
Star Wars Battlefront will make my year.
This is Cunis at the Vauxhall End. Cunis—a funny sort of name. Neither one thing nor the other
I'm a big Nintendo fan, owned all the home consoles since the SNES. Haven't owned much on the handheld side apart from the GBA and 3DS but I've enjoyed those a lot too. Saying that, I haven't played much Nintendo stuff this year and I've mostly focused on PC/PS4 games. I've been enjoying Bloodborne a lot as of late, I've never been a Souls guy but I've really liked that game. Also played a fair few grand strategy games too, mostly Paradox ones such as Crusader Kings II. I'm waiting for Star Wars Battlefront and Fallout 4 to arrive now, beyond excited for those two.
I have all the Playstation consoles, and enjoyed most easy games, Fifa and Don Bradman. I own the Wii and DS and really liked playing wii sports. Since my disability has got worse I now just play mouse-based PC games like Football Manager.
Can't be doing with sports games. I'm not a big sports fan bar cricket, which I prefer following to playing anyway. The exceptions are the Wii Sports games, which are fun distractions (plus I loved having Hitler pitching a curveball to Tintin), and the Mario sports range. I love Mario, I do. (Not in that way.)
Vaddon, get your Yoshi on. I promise that it will make you smile more than most games this year. That said, if I do get a PS4, Bloodborne has piqued my interest. But I'm not a patient man, and I worry that the difficulty will exhaust my patience quickly.
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
