The mighty original PlayStation where I got my first taste of some of my all time favourite franchises, Metal Gear, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy. All franchises which I still love and play today. Fun fact, this is the only PlayStation console I've owned while it was still current. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #playstation #sony #tombraider #finalfantasy #metalgearsolid #residentevil #jrpg #gaminglife #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek #retro #nostalgia #collecting at Kilcullen

My Sunday morning ritual, coffee and Switch. Still really enjoying Octopath Traveler. Halfway through all the chapter two's.

The Switch is really becoming a great little JRPG machine. Do you like JRPGs or Western RPGs? Or both? I like both but slightly lean towards Japanese as my favourite. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #octopathtraveler #xenobladechronicles2 #ys #squareenix #jrpg #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendolife #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek

Still loving every moment of this gem. Brings me right back to the SNES/PS1 days.

Picked up the full game at the weekend and jumped in where I left off in the demo. What a beautiful throwback this game is from not only visuals but the random encounters and the turn based combat too. I love it all! 5 of the 8 characters recruited now. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #octopathtraveler #squareenix #jrpg #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendolife #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek

Just got done with the prologue demo of Octopath Traveler. What a beautiful homage to the classic 16 bit JRPG this is. Can't wait to get stuck into the full game soon.

On Sunday mornings I love to chill with a coffee and a hand held. Getting hooked back into Tetris this weekend. Tetris may be one of the most perfect games ever made. It's just as fun and addictive now as it was almost 30 years ago when it released. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #tetris #gameboy #coffee #sundaymorning #nintendo #nintendolife #retro #retrogames #retrogaming #nostalgia #videogames #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #retrocollective #gamer #collecting #nerd #nerdlife at Kilcullen

If you seen my story post yesterday you'll know I'm playing through the Witcher 3 DLC. I finished Hearts of Stone yesterday and Started Blood and Wine. I'm absolutely loving the change of scenery so far in Toussaint, such a refreshing change from war torn Velen. These really are the best examples I know of DLC done right. Do you agree? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #thewitcher #thewitcher3 #geralt #geraltofrivia #xbox #xboxone #xboxgamer #cdprojektred #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #nerd #nerdlife #geek #irishgamer #gamestagram #gaming #gaminglife at Kilcullen

I saw Mario Kart 8 Deluxe get updated over the weekend but didn't know what it was for until I watched @liessshy story post. @nintendo added Breath of the Wild Link complete with his champions tunic and master cycle zero ๐Ÿ˜ So cool to see the game still being supported more than a year after release and four years after it's original release. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #mariokart8deluxe #mariokart #zelda #thelegendofzelda #breathofthewild #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #videogames #gamer #instagaming #instagamer #irishgamer #gaming #nintendolife #hobbie #collector #iggn at Kilcullen

I really hope the rumours that @weareplaygroundgames are developing a new Fable game are true. Wether it's Fable 4 or a reboot of the series the Xbox as a platform is crying out for big single player games like Fable. Who else is a fan of the series? 2๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #fable #xbox #xbox360 #microsoft #videogames #gamer #xboxgamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #collector #hobbie #gaming #rpg #nofilter at Albion

SEGA! Resisted picking this up last year because I figured a physical copy was inevitable so I'm very happy to get to play it now.

Picked up the the official Gears of War 4 strategy guide for a fiver from @gamestopne the other day.

Picked up some PC classics in the local charity shop for a couple of euros each. All complete as far as I can tell and the boxes are in nice condition. Played Half Life back on the original Xbox but never played WoW as I got out of PC gaming around the time It released. Any big Warcraft fans? And will Valve ever make a proper game again? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #pcgaming #wow #worldofwarcraft #halflife #halflife2 #thrifting #charityshopfind #retro #vinyl #thebeatles #abbeyroad #nostalgia #instagamer #instagaming #videogames #gamer #irishgamer #blizzardentertainment #blizzard #valve #retrocollectiveeurope #iggn at Kilcullen

Catching up with my town in Animal Crossing this morning. Haven't played it all week and the townsfolk aren't shy about letting know!

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker is out now for the Switch. If you didn't get a chance to play the original on the Wii U I'd highly recommend picking it up on the Switch. It's such a fun puzzle platformer that builds on the Toad levels from 3D World. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #captaintoad #nintendoswitch #switch #wiiu #nintendo #videogames #gamer #gamestagram #nintendolife #gaming #gaminglife #instagaming #instagamer #irishgamer #ninstagram

Picked up Bayonetta 1&2 for the Wii U for a great price on adverts.ie which is the Irish equivalent to craigslist. Haven't played 2 yet so really looking forward playing it. Any Bayonetta fans?

Sitting down to watch UFC 226 which I taped last night (it's on way too late to watch live over here).

If there was one game I wish I could start over and experience again for the first time it would Breath of the Wild. I haven't had so much joy from a game in many many years. I know I'll eventually pick up the Switch version and play through it again at some stage but it won't be the same feeling as playing it for the first time. What game would you choose to experience all over again for the first time? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #breathofthewild #zelda #wiiu #switch #nintendo #nintendolife #thelegendofzelda #videogames #gaminglife #gaming #gamer #instagaming #irishgamer #nostalgia #instagamer #gamestagram #gaminglife at Kilcullen
