    :monster: Gaming Guilty Pleasures...

    What games do you have in your collection that you may feel a bit embarrassed about if people knew you owned them and *gasp* enjoyed them?

    The second I accepted that I love the Angry Birds series is the second I stopped having gaming guilty pleasures.

    There's nothing wrong with liking Guitar Hero 1 or 2. There'd be something wrong if the later entries didn't burn out your enthusiasm though.

    Mine is Star Trek Online. I hate MMO's and this one is no better than any other. But stick me in a Galaxy class ship and have me traveling to DS9 or palling around with Worf and apparently I stop caring about quality.

    Tomba 2. I played that game a lot many years back. Just about a year ago I put it back in my console and played it all over again. I enjoyed it way more than I feel I should.

    I don't feel embarrassed about any of the games I own.

    Same as Tori, although some people I know are quite surprised by the fact that as a bearded, beer-drinking metal-loving guy rapidly approaching 30 I have put an unhealthy amount of hours into the Sims franchise over the last 14 years.

    But yeah that sort of thing doesn't embarrass me at all, a couple of weeks ago a friend and I (same age, same interests) spent an entire day playing Lego Pirates of The Caribbean and had an absolute blast, we're doing it again later this week before moving on to Harry Potter or possibly Batman. All of which I've completed already with my son, they're great games.

    The only video games I can think of that I'm embarrassed about enjoying are the Kingdom Hearts games, mainly because most people who don't play video games aren't familiar with the history behind it's creation and it just looks like I'm a big oof playing a Disney game made for little kids.

    The Dynasty Warriors and Warriors Orochi series are always must-buys for me. They're often criticised for being repetitive and button-mashy with no skill nor creativity required for executing combos.

    It's also quite a financial hit to involve myself with these games because almost every one is followed by an 'Xtreme Legends' and then an 'Empires' expansion. I often tell myself I'm not going to bother with the expansions but then Koei announces they'll come with a couple of new characters and I'm back in again.

    I'm not really embarrassed to own them though, but a few people have expressed their surprise, I guess.
