In search of a more focused and efficient way to squander my time.

This morning someone posted a sweet gaming room to reddit (picture has since been taken down), and it made me think, "gee, I'm an adult now, I can do anything I want!" And since I'm nothing if not impulsive, I now really want to buy a video game console. For the first time ever. If I use both hands, I still have leftover fingers when counting the number of times I've played a video game in my life. Show me your ways, geeks of MetaFilter! [more inside]

Can I gain something by strategically opening credit cards?

In January, I got my business successfully running, paid off and closed a bunch of personal credit cards, and began making a decent amount of money. Now I'm in a place to start opening credit cards and rebuilding my credit. Last time I looked (10 years ago), there were ways to open new credit card accounts, and as long as you were responsible about always paying off all of your balances at the end of every month, you could get bunches of free flights and bonuses and things. I recall people who played with new account bonuses as a relatively lucrative game. Is this still a thing? Is it worth the time?

Does blowing in a video game cartridge actually do anything?

Since the first Nintendo game console came out in the 80's, I can recall everyone I know (myself included) blowing into the game cartridge and/or the Nintendo itself when something went wrong (freezing, etc.). What is the premise for doing this (I saw other people do it, and sometimes it seemed to work, so that's why I did, thinking maybe dustiness/debris was the issue...), and is there any legit evidence that this really fixes things?

Help me ID/find this game: a portal-like with bouncing ball

Help me ID/find this game: it may have been playable in-browser. If downloadable, it was free and probably worked on winxp. It might have only been at a demo/tech demo state, but it was a 3d first person puzzler where you aim and it would show you the trajectory of where a ball would bounce and you could then teleport to the end point of the trajectory? The idea was that you'd have to figure out which surface/angle to bounce off in order to get to a goal destination. May even have been posted to mefi. [more inside]

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron - alike?

I'm looking for a high quality arcade flying-around pew-pew-pew game a la the Rogue Squadron series that will actually run under Windows, unlike the latter two Rogue games (which can't be emulated). Basically, I want to fly around really fast, shoot other things that are also flying around fast, and drop bombs on other things, without buying a TV, GameCube, etc. Any ideas?

Turn-based games for both the iPhone & Kindle Fire

My mom and I have been playing Words With Friends lately (I have an iPhone 4S and she has a Kindle Fire). We want to find more games to play together that are turn-based, that work on both devices, and that are ideally free (or at least cheap). We like puzzles, word games and classic card/board games, and want something that won't feel too slow, as she only plays once per day. This has been much harder to Google than I expected, so I'm hoping to gather some recommendations.

Carved up Skyrim for multiple characters?

I got Skyrim for Festivus, yay! I'd like to experience it as more that one play style; how can I divide up the map / quests so that I have minimal repetition? I tend to explore and have a hard time saying 'no' to side-quests; are there areas that I should save for one particular class?

Trying to find an old CRPG

I am trying to find this PC game I remember playing as a kid (mid-late 80's). It was maybe EGA era, definitely at least CGA. Me and a friend believe the name of it was something like "Destiny". It was a north/east/south/west/look kind of game with RPG elements. I don't remember a ton about it, except that we really enjoyed it, and never completed it because it was corrupted when we got to the end. One of the striking images I have is a green venus fly-trap like creature, with eyes on stalks. As you fought it and did damage, you would lop eyes off, and ichor would ooze out. (These were still images no animation, but updates throughout battles). I also remember something about a fountain and gems at the bottom of it as well (yeah, real specific I know!). I believe the end involved orcs and a throne or a crown, but it's getting real hazy at this time. If you have any recollection of this game, I'd love to hear about it, to prove that me and my childhood friend are not having group hallucinations, and to maybe track it down and play again.

Looking for creative, collaborative games

I'm looking for games that have an element of creativity and can be just as fun played without a real winner. For example, games like Encore (a singing game), Telestrations (a drawing game), or Apples to Apples/Cards Against Humanity. All of those games can be played to win, but the real fun is in the game itself. While I'd definitely be interested in games that don't require any supplies (ie charades) I'm really looking for fun stuff to give as gifts.

Can you identify this nuclear war themed computer game?

I remember playing a great computer strategy game on my ZX Spectrum back in the 1990s (although perhaps the game is older) which simulated being in command of the US Strategic Defense Initiative. Most of the gameplay involved doling out funding dollars to different SDI research & development projects (X-Ray satellites, high energy lasers, ABM bases etc.). You could choose whether the US president and Soviet Premier were hawkish, dovish or a mix (but they could not be both doves). There were DEFCON warning levels. All games culminated in a nuclear war with a Soviet first strike launch. There was a map with the missile swarms tracked. You had to scramble to set the red 3-letter code to activate the SDI system in time. You could take charge of individual SDI platforms yourself or just let them run automatically. You could also OK the wholesale launch of US nukes in retaliation. What is this game? (games that this is definitely not inside) [more inside]

Looking for pc action-adventure game from the 90's

-PC action-adventure game, mostly action, but I do remember simple adventure things like moving blocks or unlocking doors -first person view -can't remember how health stats and weaponry were viewed -Had to rescue a woman (go figure), but not sure if she was royalty or anything, just motivation to do the journey -Started in kobold (or kobolt) caverns, there was a spider cavern section where it was tunnels burrowed by the spiders themselves, a lava cavern/mining level where you had to break down a rock borer (might have been a laser) -mid to late 90's probably because it's graphics were close to Quake 2, just not as smooth [more inside]

Help me identify an end-of-level jingle from an unknown Gameboy-era game

PC racing game with beautiful Japanese island landscape

I remember a PC racing game with winding up and down road, with a Japanese island landscape (amongst other themes). You would be racing with a car or some flying thing, racing against computer players, maybe with some simple weapons to eradicate opponents. Roads would surprisingly split up and you would need to decide which alternative to follow. Era is probably DOS, 256 or 16M colors. Good music included (which is what gave me the flashback). Thanks heaps.

Tabletop RPG advice: How do you learn to role-play a character well?

I'm about to join a tabletop RPG group (Shadowrun) for the first time since high school. I'm not *that* concerned about the game mechanics – I'm usually pretty good at learning rules – but I was never particularly good at the roleplaying aspects of RPGs. Any advice for starting out, particularly in terms of setting up an interesting character to roleplay and really getting comfortable playing him/her? The other members of the group are pretty experienced, and have been playing together for nearly a year. In observing them, I noticed that they do a really good job with the roleplaying aspects, and I'd like to be able to keep up with them!
