    Are that looks like fun would work good for games like
    Terminator 2 the arcade game and Operation Wolf
    The cocktail cadinets people make look sweet and cool from what i see of them.
    Only down side with cocktail cadinets is trying fit all the hardwere in side a small cabinet
    i.e. CRT monitor With the likes from heat from hardwere
    i have seen people put computer fans in coicktail cabinets two cool them.

    I'm 60. My first gaming system was a Fairchild Channel F console. My first computer was an Atari 400. I bought it October 30 1981. The first game on the Atari I bought was Star Raiders.
    About the only game I play anymore is Quake 3 Arena and Quake Live. I'm trying to branch out in my game selection, but I like the fast action of multiplayer Quake.

    I'm 17 going to be 18 very soon. ^^

    As for gaming I started from around the age of 3 if my memory is correct. Let's put it this way my first game console was the Sega Megadrive where I played Sonic the Hedgehog and sometime later (a few years I believe) when the PS1 first came out (my parents brought it for me ^^) I was surprise about the massive progression in graphics when I played Spyro (the first game) which was my first 3-D game. :D

    Sometime later I brought a Gameboy Color and that became the first portable game console I ever played too. :D

    From there I pretty progressed from PS1 and Gameboy Color to PS2 + Gameboy Advance & SP + Gamecube (if the name is correct) and to present time I did have a Wii (didn't like it so I sold it to my brother), still have a PS3, PSP and Nintendo DS, but I don't really use them now as a year ago I decided to play games on PC which I still do now as the graphics are so much better along with gameplay too. ^^

    Not at 17. You will see man. Life is going to change for you in ways you never expected. At 17 I "knew everything" too. I had already seen more then a normal 17 year old too. But man you have no idea whats in store. Enjoy it man!

    Unfortunately I know what is ahead of me already and the only thing that will change that is luck which I guess can happen at anytime. Still I guess I'm happy that I have a rig that should last for around 3 years of gaming (maybe more) with some minor upgrades such as a possible motherboard upgrade along with getting some solid state drives when something more reasonable comes out. There again there could also be that so-called world's end in 2012... well like that would happen.

    Still I understand the fact that there are greater games which have yet to come out and I guess they are the greater years that all of us awaits. :D

    They way the industry is going I don't expect there will not be any more good releases, ever. Seriously, it's all downhill.

    @Frick

    True. Especially with COD where it's practically the same game all the time only that it's either a continuation of the story or that it is a different story. The only COD game I did like was World at War, but as for Modern Warfare 2 I didn't really like it at all as I was expecting a lot more considering I brought it when it first came out.

    The only good game I found which I actually liked which is different to most of the PC games I've played so far would be Front Mission Evolved and I would definetly say that it's worth trying out. The next game that I have high expectations of would be Assassin's Creed Brotherhood which is why I have pre-ordered the codex edition so I should be expecting that very soon as it is going to be released on the 17th in the US and the 19th in the UK.
