I like three games on that list, and I already own them. I was interested in Quantum of Solace, but the GameTrailers review pushed me away. It was repeated that this game doesn't make you feel like you're playing as James Bond.

No gadgets, plus the multiplayer is very generic.

Thanks.

Yeah, I've been telling myself the same thing. When the heck is this game gonna hit the $20 sweet spot?!? Must be truly selling solidly considering its still not much lower than World at War. Wow...

So is this to imply that Fathers only want PS3 games? What about 360? I know way more fathers with that console.

If you don't mind used then use the 20% coupon at Gamestop this week. Without the edge card, it's $21 and with it it's $18. That's what I'm going to be doing. $27 is not a sale price.

The CAG Dads group officially endorses any retailer that offers discount video games for Father's Day. Do not give us crappy neck ties, boring joke books, or stupid golf junk. We want GAMES!

It's only for PS3 because guys who play 360 never get laid so they can't get any kids.....ZING!!! :lol:

The second I saw the sale was PS3 only, I hoped and hoped someone would comment on the absence of 360 games just for that comment.
Thank you. I'll be here all week and don't forget to tip your waitress.

I actually really liked 007. The mechanics are reminiscent of 007 Goldeneye. No gadgets but there is a lot of sneaking possible (though you can run and gun if you want) and I liked the cover system. I MUCH prefer 007 to COD4. Online MP is better than COD4 because it is somewhat more tactical.

I wish the prices were a little better, I'd bite on Civ4 or Bioshock were they just $10 lower.
Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

Want to buy Bioshock, QoS, and PoP, but I will wait until they get even cheaper.

Most 14-18 year olds don't have kids. In my engineering dept I know five PS3 dads and no 360 owners, of course we are over 30.

How much is the PS3 selling for?

It says to see price in cart. Is the lower price a significant deviation from the MSRP?

I went ahead and bought it because I figured I can spend 20 hours on it (I like to get my games down to 1 dollar per hour.).

There was actually a study that supported this. Not gonna look it up but PS3 had a bit older audience (around 25+ and up I believe) while 360 was more centered around 13-21 or soemthing.

FFS, people. There are 5 Sundays between now and father's day.

Quit bitching that it's an exclusive sale - be happy that it has semi-tempting prices, and otherwise shut the Fuck up. Are y'all really dense enough to think there won't be further Father's Day sales on games from Amazon?

Christ, who would have thought low prices would piss people off? Fuckin' grow up.
