Yeah, but I've seemingly solved it. I've switched from XBox 360 to Nintendo 64. Those games tend to be a little more inclusive and don't run as long, while bringing back a ton of memories. Smash 64, Mario Kart 64, and Mario Party 2 is an unbeatable lineup. Especially, as pogo said, with beer.

Madden On-Line may have marked the official downfall of my GPA. I had a Top 100 Ranking to hang onto in Madden 2004, which was way more important than Calculus.

Nothing beats the old Mario Kart 64 and GoldenEye wars, though. And yes, License to Kill was the only way to play. Temple, Rockets. Stack, Power Weapons. Facility, Lasers. Library, Remote or Proximity Mines... ahh, the memories. Oh, and no one can be Oddjob -- unless you're new to the game.

Oddjob was so cheap... :-t !+)

N64 is the best.

I always chose Moonraker Elite, and we had a rule that anyone who didn't have at least 50 kills by the time the previous round was over (first to 100 wins), had to be Jaws in the next round. :-D

Moonraker Elite was about as bad as Oddjob. They were too short.

Yeah, the other bad guys were the moonrakers who wore the yellow suits who you could see easily in caverns. Always an easy kill. ;-D

Man all this talk makes me want to get a N64 again. I wonder how much they're going for on Ebay.

I just bought one a few months ago. Its like going back to middle school, brings back classic memories of smash bros., mario kart, goldeneye, starfox. Doesnt get any better than re-living the classics. ;-D

We've got two N64s in my hall. It's hard to beat the original Super Smash Bros.
