Hunting & Fishing Video Games: Cool or Lame?

width=500 I used to be into video games. Ah, who am I kidding? I still like to play them, it’s just a little harder to find the time these days. That said, I haven’t had the chance to play any of these new super-realistic hunting and fishing games. Every time I pass by the displays at Bass Pro or Cabela’s there is already a string of kids lined up so the best I can do is stand and watch. I see that Bass Pro Shops came out with a new fishing game, The Strike, which has the added benefit of a lifelike rod/reel controller, and Remington has plans to create a lifelike shooting/hunting game with a controller modeled after a toy gun. Games have come a long way since the days of playing Duck Hunt on the original Nintendo. Anyone out there enjoy playing these types of games? Any favorite titles? I have to admit I’m a fan when I can’t get out and do the real thing, but there’s no substitution for the real thing. —Ben
