I love games - my dad used to have a general shop with Arcade Games and one of those real, old-school pin ball machines. So I grew up playing Double Dragon and Street Fighter!
I love Tekken! My husband who is not a gamer at all suggested I get get God of War 3. I am hooked! It's also "physical strenuous" - my husband laughed when I said I think I totally engaged my abs playing it. Well, you will definitely have stronger forearms!
I have even bookmarked forum pages and the You Tube Walkthroughs dedicated to the game. I give this game the thumbs up , it forces you to constantly think and strategize - a must have game. Great tip - position of the controller - put it on your lap - sounds silly I know but it makes play easier.
Update: Since I've written this post , I haven't played the game (about 2 weeks!). I have no idea why - maybe I'm too lazy to set the whole thing up #sadbuttrue
Update: I am now stuck at a musical puzzle - 1 note away from finishing it - it's driving me crazy!
