the original title to the article was "Top 5 PS3 games that'll convince your dad to play WITH YOU"

Okay, well my dad is more of an intellectual than a redneck chest-thumper. The only games I've ever got him interested in were Oddworld: Munch's Oddyssey, Biochosk on PS3, and Metal Gear Solid 4. Lately he's been impressed with Brutal Legend, though.

crazy250003274d ago, this just makes gaming journalism sound nasty lol

Darkstorn3274d ago

He's referring to the Austrian man who imprisoned his own daughter in a cellar for over a decade and fathered multiple children with her. I'm sure the same thing happens in the South, but he mentioned a specific example.

The same applies to Uncharted 1. I know U2 has a lot more action, but U1 still feels very much like a movie.

my father has openly challenged me to Soul Calibur 4 matches.... and he's pretty damn good.

Darkstorn3274d ago

Haha. My dad just watches Astaroth's axe go through Talim and then asks me why she's still much for realism :D

Only need ONE: Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, after that he will start playing all the quality games by his own

The only games my father has played in the past 25 years are:

Super Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, Tetris,

Fast forward 20 years:
Wii Sports, Boom Blox


And that's it. He has very, very strictly defined and limited interests when it comes to videogames.

My father in law geeked on GT5 prologue for 5 hours one night, logitech wheel and all.

my father don't play games at all! he's more an outdoor type of guy and when at home, he prefers to sleep! but he sometimes watches me playing FIFA with my brothers as he likes football, and also watching when I play racing games because he like cars! recently, he sat there for quite awhile watching me playing Uncharted 2! he seems amazed! :)

I don't think anyone would call their father a "grown stud". Ick.

komp3274d ago

Ummmmm...... I am a dad and I need to know how to convince the Kid to play......

CadDad3274d ago

I'm also the dad, and I try to figure out a way to keep my kids off my PS3.
