Before I got my own PS3 console earlier this year, I played 'split-screen' a couple of nights a week on a buddy's machine. As long as you remember that it's just a game and not a way of life; it's not a bigger time waster than as a movie or a TV show (most of which are mediocre to lousy these days).

My game tastes tend towards the 'First-Person Shooters', such as Wolfenstein (single player campaign mode), Call of Duty Black-Ops #1 (on-line, multi-player & Zombies modes), and the newly released Black-Ops #2 (some on-line, mostly learning the new Zombie mode in single player).

There is a social aspect to playing on-line with a headset. There are about 6 of us in a 'Clan' (sorta like a bowling team with guns); since we play together semi-regularly, we can exploit the concept of teamwork in games such as capture-the-flag. Although it doesn't happen often, you do get some trash talking adolescents, sounds of household chaos (the mikes pick-up everything), or worse, the guys that play Rap at max volume. But it's easy to mute them with a push of a button.

The only thing that really spoils the game for everyone are the guys that hack or use lag switches to win at any cost. After you gain a bit of experience, they're easy to spot. They're not really fooling anyone; but the PlayStation Network doesn't seem to do anything about it. Turn-key equipment/software can be bought on-line, so it's not even in the class of a clever stunt anymore. ............James.

Hey, watch that! I'm 60 and play a bit every day. Mostly FPSs. Spent the last year playing Black Ops because Halo Reach blew. Now on Halo 4, waiting desperately for some new maps and solo FFA to come out. Bought Black Ops 2, but haven't tried it yet.

My kid is a MAJOR gamer. As in 42 +- Guinness Book World Records, Twin Galaxies World Champion 2011. Lately, he did a 43 hour continuous speedrun to level cap Borderlands 2. He got press all over the world for that:

He has 1,800+ #1 rankings on everything from X-Box to IPhone. The kid's sick.

Oh, and he's also a competitive power lifter. Go figure.
