R.T.F.A.* Monday: Best Place To Play Portable Games

sonic.jpgI finished "Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword" on Sunday. While it is only mildly noteworthy that I finished the game (I sometimes get distracted) it's more interesting where I finished the game; at home, on my couch. Very rarely do I actually play a handheld game in the comfort of my own home; that's where I play my console games.

Living in New York City, gaming daily on public transportation is easily one of the biggest advantages, as Multiplayer's own Stephen Totilo likes to highlight almost daily. However, my favorite place to play my DS isn't on the subway, it's on the train. Metro-North commuter trains have one of the best environments to play games; they're quiet, have comfy seating, and have very few distractions. Where's your favorite place to play handheld games?
