    My kids got me playing COD Black Ops. I'm not ashamed to admit it.

    I've bought 2 video games this year...for my 10-y-o nephew. One was a PS3 game, the other an XBox (he has used systems, his dad bought 'em). My total investment was <$20.

    I play 2 games on Facebook. They're free. If BF had games, I might play them, too, but................

    I spent some of this morning watching someone's screen capture of GTA-V on youtube. I was interested in seeing what happened, and in what the user interface was like.

    After a while of watching, it dawned on me that perhaps these third-person games are popular because they appeal to the ego. The main character is always the center of whatever is going on.

    Not different that what happen in popular movies. You will notice that in those movies the end is often a happy ending and the main character is pretty often in some way related to the viewer. You usually know when the popular movie is intended for adults, kids...just at looking at the main characters. Must be for a reason. Like in movies the main character in video games being at the center is a good way to make the viewer or player feeling involved into the story and experience extraordinary things that usually won't happen in his/her normal life. How many popular movies where the main character happen to be president of the united states or saving the world or whatever but usually successful? How many of us happened to save the world in real life?

    I'd like to play it, but would need a lot more free time and a probably a new computer. How is it? I preferred Vice City over GTA IV.

    I'm really loving it, same with everyone I know, including the people that didn't like IV.
