This is how I got here:
A friend was goofing off with a multicade I have last year, and he played Golden Tee. I watched him, and said I have never heard of or tried that game.
Next thing all we played was the 18 courses of Golden Tee on the multicade.
Next game I purchased was a 2020 Golden Tee.
Then I stumbled on this thread and read about Big Buck Hunter.
I had never heard of, or played Big Buck Hunter.
I asked my Golden Tee friend about Big Buck Hunter, and he acted way more excited about it, than he did Golden Tee.
So next game purchased was a Reloaded mini offline.
The reasons I went with offline:
I really do not want any new monthly bills.
My internet is spotty here, trees fall on the lines every time I turn around and it takes forever for the cable company to repair them. (11 days most recently, and just temporary, lines are not back on the poles yet).
Cell phone service is spotty also here, even with Verizon, which does work the best here.
Anyway, not knowing anything about this game, my only disappointment from the Raw Thrills fliers was that I thought the game came with guns and bows.
BUT this game is so awesome, once I learned everything that works with offline, I have 0 complaints.
I had originally planned to upgrade Golden Tee about every 3 years, now I plan to leave it the way it is, and upgrade Big Buck Hunter with all new animal hunts they release, and maybe some of the other games they may release.
Before Big Buck Hunter my girlfriend and I played about 20 rounds of golf a week, and some pinball.
After Big Buck Hunter, we play around 1.5 hours of Big Buck a night together, and then she plays another hour of it by herself. Maybe 2-3 rounds of golf a week, and sadly no pinball. (not getting rid of anything though).
After playing Big Buck Hunter here for a while I started a topic about how awesome this, and Golden Tee is, and what will be the next big hit. So far nothing I know of, and it will be very hard to ever come up with a game as awesome as Big Buck Hunter.
Label me a fan boy of this game all day long, because I am/we are.
