I also had a TI99/4a that the school used to let us take home for a week at a time. First one we owned was an Apple IIC 128Kb w/internal floppy. Went away from computers for a long time, until I was 24 and got a job answering support line at night while I was in school for economics. Now I am an IT manager. DOH!

If you call FlightSims gaming, then I do a lot. Love any flight sim I can get my hands on. Got myself all nerded up with the Yoke and stick controls, throttle module and rudder pedals.

Used to game a lot, now I just wait and pick up games that I really want to play, go nuts with them for a month or so, then detox. I play/played AOE, HL, HLII, Counterstrike, Opp Force, Dungeon Siege, Farcry, Halo, MOHAA, Sinent Hunter, Unreal Tournament/UT 2003, Dark Force.

Loved playing Exodus:Ultima IV on my IIC though. I have an original flavor PS that I play golf on once in a while.

i only play the total war series online with my 'friends' been playing with the same group of nerds going on four years now...

we mostly play medieval total war/viking invasion, and sometimes log into rome to play a mod or two. many of the old timers in the totalwar community were dissapointed with the multiplay of rome, and moved on, but there is still a core of the old guard.

maybe the new release this fall will bring more back.

Yeah I've got a solid World of Warcraft addiction. Take my advice, if you enjoy your other hobbies, STAY AWAY from this game! Even though I try to resist, I end up playing every day, even if it's just for a few minutes. Plus, because of the way the game is set up, you need to organize 40 people for a lot of things... so you end up planning your real life around your virtual one.

It's kind of embarassing to be into it so much, but at the same, I have a ton of fun playing it.

I've got 8 characters on Zul'jin, including a 60 warrior and 60 priest.

During the few times I'm not playing World of Warcraft, I'm picking my way through Half-Life 2 or playing various Xbox 360 games. I think it's safe to say I'm a videogame addict to the nth degree.

One of the best games of all time is coming out at midnight. I already told my wife to not be surprised when I'm playing my XBOX 360 when she leaves for work @ 8:30AM.

IGN has given it a fricking 9.8!

I'm so stoked!

My first online video game was SOCOM. Was so addicted to that. Heavily involved in clan play. Ranked on the leaderboards, etc. Played the heck out of SOCOM 2 and SOCOM 3 also. Cheaters eventually ruined pretty much every SOCOM game.

Then came FFXI. I got hooked on that for 4+ years. After I quit that I swore to myself I would never play another MMO again. So far I've stuck to it. It just drained the life out of me. It was like a job.

I've played all the Resident Evil series. Loved those.

I mainly stick to TPS games. The only time I vary from that is Borderlands. It's the closest I'll come to a RPG.

Right now playing Borderlands 2 quite a bit.

BTW, I'm stoked for Black Ops 2 next week as well. Has anyone pre-ordered it?
