I've never touched them myself. My brother had a system or two (Nintendo and Sega, I think) but video games just weren't a big thing in our house. Not that it was outlawed or anything, but my brother and I preferred to make up our own stories by playing with Legos or writing. I was an RPG gamer (books) in my teens.
One of my cousins played video games during his entire wedding reception. I thought that was incredibly sad.
