I was wandering if you guys have some other hobbies that you enjoy?

Besides collecting stickers and cards,I enjoy traveling, reading a good book, watching drama movies and series. I am also a technophile that does not like spending too much money on tech stuff. If that makes any sense. I recently became addicted to cheap action cameras and love to record my trips with them. (You would be amazed what you can buy with 100$) :D

Lately I´ve been watching Breaking Bad series, which is awesome. Bad ass stuff.

I like playing Fifa 15 on my PS3 (if someone wants to play online just tell me), drink beer, watch football and make videos for my channel.

Okay, speaking of games, has anyone played latest GTA V? It is bloody amazing. If you do not hear from me for the next few months, I am probably dead or got addicted to GTA and forgot about anything else! I usually do not play games except for PES and GTA. I enjoyed San Andreas and Vice City so much ,but never played GTA IV. This new one if huge 58+ GB, and I am lucky enough that my PC is not yet outdated since it supports it on normal settings. Hell Yeah!

I am also addicted to GTA 5. Incredible achievement, and my PC is an epic machine (I build my own computers) so it runs it on the max settings. So beautiful.

I also like random nerdy simulation games like train simulator and euro truck simulator 2 (amazing game, worth the $5 it frequently drops to on steam). Civ 5 also is amazing.

And obviously soccer. I'm an addict.

Borrow me your camera then! :D

Last games I played were from these sagas: Assassin's Creed, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy (only until XII) and Resident Evil... GTA only played until Vice City, which I still have for PS2... And since I'm a cheap guy, now I only buy games when they become dirty cheap! :cool:

I used to be into videogames until three or four years ago. My classes at university started, so I had less time to play videogames. In addition, my PlayStation 2 suddenly stopped working, and I've never thought about buying another console.

My favorite games from that time are PES (of course), Silent Hill, GTA and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series. I still have my Game Boy Advance SP Classic NES edition and a used Nintendo DS I bought not so long ago. My favorite games are Mario Kart and the Pokemon main series. :)

Since I'm studying Audiovisuals, my other passions are music, photography and filmmaking. I play the guitar, bass, drums, a little bit of piano and some other percussion instruments (like cajón peruano, for instance). Any musician around here? :D

About sports, besides football, I love cycling. I use my bike to go almost anywhere in the city.

By the way, I'd like to know more about those cameras, @Pavle. :)

@Sergio, ah PS1 and PS2... So many hours spent on these consoles. My PS2 is still working and me and my bro love to play some classics on it. Since it supports PS1 CD's its a true travel down the memory lane.
Wow, that audiovisuals sounds exciting! So you do lot of sounds and animation? I always wanted to learn those stuff, but never managed to quite get it. That is why images and logos for this site are the way they are :p

Well, not sure what particularly you are interested in? But I do use a lot of cheap Chinese cameras lately :)

Always loved music me. I play acoustic guitar & even Dj'd at Uni. Worked as a DJ in England & here in Vancouver before my 2 kids were born. Wish I could do that again but it is long late hours on weekends and I'd rather spend it with the kiddas.

@LFC1892 Nice! I've always wanted to learn how rhythm machines, loops and synths work, but never had the time to try one or found them difficult to use :(. Guess I'm that old school guy who prefers to play the guitar or any acoustic instrument. But I like works from people like Daft Punk, Vangelis, Fatboy Slim and, more recently, Flying Lotus and The Gaslamp Killer.

@Pavle I'm wondering where you get those cameras, and what kind of stuff can you record or capture with them? is it related to lomography or something like that?

Well, i collect and play lots of things. Besides football related cards and stickers I:

- Collect football jerseys, specially Audax Italiano from Chile (my team).
- Collect and read History books (I have an universitary degree on History).
- Play bass on a band (same band since like 15 years ago).
- Collect Robert Howard's Conan stuff.
- Play board and roleplay games.
- Collect airsoft guns and shot my friends with it (very funny).
- Practice medieval swordmanship.
- Play PS3, specially CoD, PES, Red Dead Redemption and Skyrim.

I'm a bit geek.

Daft Punk & Fatboys Slim(he has not done much lately) are very smart when in comes to inventing new synth sound.
Back in the 80's there was so many British bands that I was into who used the loops, drum machines & synths to the make amazing sounds.

Hello!

I like to collect Lego sets.
I like to collect music CDs.
I like to collect football jerseys from Liverpool, Juventus and Saprissa (My lovely teams)
I love to go to Costa Rican beaches!

Groundhopping. Going to different stadia just to see a game. Sometimes good quality professional football, sometimes really low amateur level. So far I have watched games at 2,284 grounds in 42 different countries. Doesn't leave much time to support my team!

As for me, my other great hobby is...History! I really love History and particularly Ancient History and History of the XXth century (mainly political and legal history). I finish a PhD and I hope to find a position at the end to change this hobby into a job (I don't have a definitive job despite I'm teaching Legal History in an university near Paris until the end of the year)
Moreover, I like to travel, and watching movies; some series too^^
For the video games, only...Mario Kart^^
