    Uninvited FTW.

    And that controller looks similar to the one that was in the hotel I stayed at that I mentioned earlier, if I remember correctly. I haven't seen any game systems in hotels I've been in recently, though...there are usually arcades, though.

    the funny thing is most TVs Hotels have have Input Outputs for game system so you can plug your own stuff in, but its real hard to crack it to be able to play it


    I almost felt like that when I brought my Nintendo Gamecube with me to a hotel.


    And discovered that the A/V input jacks on the back of the TV were covered and the LodgeNet TV remote didn't have a "video" or a "TV Source" button?

    By the way, We went on a Labor Day trip to Niagara Falls last year and I did see that same LodgeNet game controller hooked up to the back of the TV. The TV was a Zenith Concierge Series TV. My cheap parents saw no need to use it but I had bought along my Nintendo DS so it didn't really matter anyway. I did look behind the TV once and saw a large panel. No doubt that's where the A/V Input jacks were. However, on our first night the TV went haunted. When turned on, it began on the Hotel nework and then cycled through all of the channels through and endless loop. We had to call room service for it and they said it was the LodgeNet Remote. They bought a new one but the TV kept doing it. When it did it again the next morning, they bought a new TV while we were out at breakfast. It was exactly the same, it had the big panel on the back and it had the LodgeNet game controller. It was just less dusty. While I bring up that slight topic drift, Has anybody else had thier hotel TVs do that channel thing? Are the Zenith Concierge TVs the only hotel Tvs that do that?

    no but i did have a tv that made this really heinous buzzing sound, it tends to be only the more expensive hotels that cover up the inputs
    "No beer and no TV make Homer...something something."
    "Go crazy ?"
    "Don't mind if i do !"

    Those hotel TVs have thier problems. How is it that the inputs are covered up by the MORE EXPENSIVE HOTELS? It should be the other way around.

    because the cheaper ones don't really care w her as the expensive ones want you to have to pay to hvae fun, so the bigger they are the greedier they are

    Hey guys, you might've heard already but in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it'll have trial versions of classic games on it (called "Masterpieces" in Brawl). I bet it would be similar to hotel gaming, except you play the timed demos for free in Brawl . I know the games in Brawl are only timed (since the games are already on Virtual Console), but I know it'll be pretty cool .


    I heard about that. It looks really awesome, I'd love to try that out. It's kind of like the demos I've seen built in x-box games. Like the first Halo has a section where you could play different x-box demos. That sounds simular to what Brawl's about to have which I think is an excellent feature.

    I'd probably bring my laptop PC with me to a hotel to play Life is Strange with a XBOX 360 USB controller.

    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.


    What? Is he not old enough to pay for an overpriced hotel video game hour by himself?


    Well, file a lawsuit against his awful parents and turn their stupid "no" into a "yes" (through a attorney). The attorney should decide to put his parents behind bars in jail and enable him to bring his Android tablet or laptop computer instead of a awful game boy.

    I like hotel in-room games consoles

    They may be a little expensive, but they are still good for keeping you occupied, and trying new games before buying them .

    I remember our Christmas vacation in Florida, USA in 2000; I played a lot of in-room Super Nintendo at the 2 hotels we stayed in. I had so much fun trying lots of different games for the first time. Mom reffered to some of it as trying the Super Nintendo games before buying the "Game Boy equivelents" (example: try Tetris Attack on Super Nintendo and if a good game, buy Pokémon Puzzle Challenge for Game Boy) . This was before I eventually decided to get a Super Nintendo, and right now I do have a Super Nintendo (had it since 2001) . On another note, I DO have Pokémon Puzzle Challenge on my Game Boy .


    You should try Android (most of the Nintendo games are free to download through Google Play such as Pokémon Go, Dr. Mario World, Pokémon Shuffle, Super Mario Run and Zelda).
