Should I buy myself PS4 for my birthday? I think I'd like to play games, but a) I suck at playing games and b) I don't seem to have time for playing games.

The best way to pick a system is to find the one that has the kind of games you like. I have a Nintendo DS because, essentially, Pokemon and its variants.

Go visit Amazon and snoop around the game section. Nearly everything has trailers/previews. See what makes you say OH DAMN I GOTTA PLAY THAT! You may find that the sort of stuff you like is already available for your PC.

The last Pokemon game kind of disappointed, it's true. Animal Crossing New Leaf is pretty keen. (Happy Home Designer is, so far, making me insane.) I am also a huge fan of Spore Creatures, which you can get used for well under five bucks.

Laptops can play a lot of stuff. Heck, netbooks can. Even if you don't have the juju to work new titles, there's tons of old stuff -- visit Steam or Good Old Games. There's also Big Fish Games, which specializes in inexpensive puzzle games and point-and-click adventure. They should have Peggle and Peggle Nights, which are vaguely pachinko-like marble shooters that have a nice veneer of derangement. If that's a word. Sometimes they get translated French/Russian/whatever games that are downright weird.

See? You're gaming!

It's a pain in the ass to use, but Nintendo e-shop has loads of odd little games fer cheap. Japanese train simulator is an honest to God genre of game.

The Futurama tablet game is pretty keen. They went to a lot of trouble to make it right.
