I haven't played that many of them. FFXIII was a huge letdown for me, and the others didn't quite have the appeal of the PS2 games. Wii sports was really fun though, so that's what I'll go with.

Really, it depends.
~* 43. What's your favorite Online Game?
World of Warcraft.

DS or PSP

~* 47. Have you ever defended a character/game/console you liked in an argument? Which one?
Only in friendly arguments, and too many to name.

Final Fantasy XII
~* 49. Name a character that you like but everyone else seems to hate.
~* 50. Name a game that you hate but everyone else seems to like.
Twilight Princess, wii version only. If they'd spent a little longer perfecting the motion controls, it would have been better, but just waggling the controller every once in a while doesn't cut it for me. I will pick up the gamecube version eventually though.
~* 51. Name a character that you hate but everyone else seems to love.
~* 52. Have you ever stopped before you finished a game because it was too frustrating to go on?
Yeah. But I'll usually come back to it after blowing off a bit of steam.
~* 53. Will you stop at NOTHING to get 100% in a video game?
~* 54. Have you ever injured yourself at a video game?
Well, my vision's pretty much shot, and I don't think the gaming helped. Strictly speaking, I don't think that's an injury though.
~* 55. Has a horror/survival genre video game scared you to the point that you refused to finish the game? Did you get nightmares from said game?
~* 56. Have you ever thrown a controller/disc/cartridge in a fit of frustration?
Yeah, thankfully Nintendo makes really durable stuff.
~* 57. Do you need to blow/clean certain games to get them to play?
A few of my N64 games do this.
~* 58. Have you ever played a game for so long that you missed sleep over it?
Yes, but I maintain that I didn't miss the sleep.
~* 59. Were you ever involved in the Pokemon craze?
Was and am.
Bitching and ranting
