Video games were better in the 80s

I have become a grumpy old person who cannot play video games. I'm looking for PS4 recommendations. I've seen other threads, but apparently I'm a special, grumpy, snowflake. [more inside]

Games like Uncharted... and Rachet and Clank?

Pretty much what it says on the tin. My dad enjoys both Rachet and Clank and the Uncharted series, but he's pretty much caught up with both of them. I'm looking for similar games with a similar mix of adventure/puzzle solving/etc on the Playstation 4 - further criteria below the fold. [more inside]

What is the name of this PS1 game?

As I've aged, I've become more interested in nostalgia! Back when I was but a wee child, there was a 3D PS1 RPG that I really liked. For the life of me I can't recall the title, but, and I know how useless this is, it involved airships, pirates, etc... [more inside]

I am the Dragonborn, what am I supposed to do without my PS3?

My much beloved PS3 has just given up the ghost. Now, my husband and I aren't sure what to do. All we really want is something that can stream TV (via Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon) and will let us play Skyrim. But what should we buy, to replace our PS3? [more inside]

What's a great PS3 game for multiplayer gaming at the library?

My library has a Playstation 3 gaming program, and I'm looking to buy a few new games for it. Most of the people who come are ages 10-14, and I'm looking for games that would be appropriate for that age group (yes, I know most of them play Halo and Grand Theft Auto at home, but for the library they should really be rated T and under). We have some sports games (soccer, basketball, car racing) and some fighting games (Marvel Vs. Capcom, Street Fighter), and I'd really like a good game or two that doesn't fit in those boxes, but I'd be open to really good sports and fighting games. Oh -- and it should DEFINITELY have multiplayer. What should I get? (We definitely can't get a next-gen console.)

Playstations not playing well with NAT?

I'm a network wrangler at a university. I keep reading articles in the consumer press that that the new playstations have issues in a NAT environment. I'm trying find out what's actually going on with it but my google-fu is failing because all my searches are overwhelmed with results containing, say, instructions for how to set up your linksys home router to do the right thing. Which isn't quite as applicable to my enterprise-level Juniper SRX firewalls. Anyone have pointers to a more enterprise-level technical documentation on this? I'd like to have a good idea of what the issues are before I try and put dorms full of PS4-wielding kids on a NAT network. Thanks!

Internet Browsing on PS3

Since the Xbox 360 doesn't have a browser I am unable to connect to Xbox Live on a public internet connection because the 360 cannot give me access to the user agreement (if anyone knows a way around that, I'd like to know). Does anyone know if the PS3 has a browser capable of going on a public wifi and agreeing to the user agreement? I ask this because I am considering purchasing one for the library I work at. This will allow me to download updates for our games.

Best DLC for PS3? Short and sweet. What's a good ~$10 download for the PS3? (I've got Braid and Noby Noby Boy). I'm thinking of maybe Pixel Junk Monsters, or Flower. Is there anything else I should look at? Basically the only genres I'm not into are Racing and Fighting, but I'll make exceptions for excellence.

Looking for humorous artillery in the xbox vs PS wars.

I'm particularly looking for a one liner that did the rounds a month or two back that said something to the effect of "my playstation won't power up while the [xbox] green light is showing", but any clever "My console > your console" will do.
