    Anybody ever seen a hotel that actually has video games? I recently went to a hotel in Texas and they had an actual video game controller which looks kind of like an SNES controller. But it turns out that playing video games at the hotel was a complete rip-off. It says that I have to pay about $7 along with tax in order to play one hour of video games. WHAT A RIP-OFF!!! Has anybody been in a hotel that had video games?

    I was at a hotel recently and saw what you are talking about. It was so tempting even though it was a ripoff. This also reminds me of a hotel that had a movie channel where you could rent movies. But they had a line of trailers and a mascot talking about the channel.

    At a Holiday Inn in Jasper, I played "Primal Rage" and "DarkStalkers" for the first time.

    I convinced my dad once to pay for an hour of use of the N64 in our room. Turned out to be a complete ripoff. I also once accidentally ordered a pay-per-view porno. Needless to say, the following morning was a bit embarrassing when my dad questioned me about that strange charge on his credit card.

    At a hotel in Fort Lauderdale, I saw one that had SNES games. Seems good for vacations, but they were expensive, yes. The ones I remember were Super Mario World and F-Zero... but I think there was more.

    I've never been to a Hotel that had video games but from what I've heard it does look like a ripoff.

    no idea if they still have them or not

    it was a N64 controller and you paid $10/hr for games.

    Yeah he did, and it sucked just like all of his other videos.

    I remember doing this a long time ago, they had this weird controller built-in to the TV, it had Super Mario World, F-Zero, Super Mario Kart, and a bunch of other awesome games. Only an hour of play, but I was homesick so it was refreshing. x] We switched games continuously but mostly played Super Mario World, since you could play multi-player with one controller.

    How did I know? I didn't know. That was just a coincidence.

    I didn't bother playing the games at the hotel either, the fact that you got to pay this much money is an excuse for you to bring your own video games at a hotel, like the Nintendo DS, at least they don't charge you for that. The hotel I was in was over in Texas because I went to visit my boyfriend so I stayed at a hotel with him and his parents being there. We were going to check out the games there but it was too much. My boyfriend asked me to purchase an hour of playtime but I didn't want to pay this much, he asked his parents and they said no too. It doesn't matter anyway, because they just rip you off.

    I dunno. With the BlueMario brothers, I guess I assumed RedYoshi was also male.

    Oh well. Let's forget all our troubles with a big bowl of Strawberry Ice Cream.
