The Horrible Show 12-15-10: Think of the Adults: Game Time

The Horrible ShowWould someone think of the adults? Actually we do, all the time. We just haven’t discussed it until our special guest Nathan gave Justin, Cole, and Ethan an excuse to talk about managing your game time as adult and family responsibilities increase. Send in your questions to simon@horriblenight.com or @TheHorribleShow

Growing up a gamer may seem easier than being a grown up gamer. That doesn’t you should give up, and we’re here to help. Before it gets too heavy, we should officially introduce you to Nathan – The Prophecy – who has vanished from the site in recent weeks thanks to the birth of his twins. We welcome him back with our Threesomes of the Week where Cole is confused that Inception didn’t confuse him at all. The On the Spot Question asks – what is your greatest gaming marathon session? You can almost hear Nathan tearing up recalling memories of Final Fantasy VII. Those marathons may be behind us, but there is still plenty of gaming left ahead in our adult lives. We take a look at how game time has changed from our bachelor days on through marriage and having children. Along the way we highlight games that your significant others can enjoy, and a few that may have them worried about your stability. Hopefully we saved each other and you from a potential real life fight due to video games. Of course, who says we know what we are talking about? After all, we are the types of people that can spend from now until the game comes out debating the Mass Effect 3 trailer.

  1. Justin Shimp

    I cant wait to play catherine. It looks amazing. I love the persona series and im sure i wont be disappointed. But I feel I probably will have to play it in solitude.

  2. Wizardtrain187

    I actually want to see that game in action, they’ve been talking about for sometime now on some of the other sites.
