I was wondering how many maillers out there were interested in videogames, so I created this poll to find out. I usually play some time of videogame everyday, but sometimes its more like a few times a week. Coif LoL Wink Very Happy

I guess my videogame playing rises and falls depending on what's out there. I also tend to play more on portables b/c I travel around a lot. Although lately I suppose my playing has tapered off since there's a lot of other stuff I like to do...

I used to play Halo almost everyday...then Halo 2 came out. I played it for a while but I just don't have time anymore with my job and this being my last year of school...only a short time left until the end. I can assure you that it will pick up again as soon as Halo 3 comes out.

John Lennon once sang a song where he imagined a world with no religion at all, and how all the people would be living life in peace, which sounds like a pretty terrific philosophy to follow - but then again, John Lennon also sang a song about how he was an eggman and a walrus goo goo g'joob, so i'm not sure he was always 100 per cent reliable.

WoW is not a videogame. Do not associate yourself with petty console gamers.

PC games are not video games. Video games are console games. If you only play PC games, you do not play videogames.

This poll was kind of meant to include console, portable, PC, MAC, and any other type of softwarish type game out there. Just to end the debate. I know the word videogame relates directly to games for consoles or portables, but the poll was meant to include everything.

I am t3h l337 g4m3r. ph34r my m4d 5ki11z.

lol. I play some...sort of. My life revolves around game, anime, and maille, so far. Evil thoughts about jobs, and life have been invading, but...i can still kick them out. If I find a game I like, i play it. and not just a little bit Razz Back when i was addicted to Diablo II LoD, i would play till I could close my eyes, and see the little mini-map lines on my eyelids Razz The sun would inexplicably disappear, then reappear...in the middle of winter Razz

All gaming machines rock Razz PC, console, portable, ping pong paddles Razz

NWN keeps telling me something about cyclic errors...otherwise I'd be playing it a lot. Well, that, and I need to find my CD key. Whats really weird is it was going to load, but I didn't have my CD key. Then I find it, after my friend screwed around on my puter, and now it tells me cyclic error...>_<

Pong on an old Colecovision was a video game. A very primitive video game, but a video game none the less. It wasn?t until Pac-Man came along that the games started to have any personality. Then along came the Atari 2600 and the Commodore Vic-20 and C64 and the early PCs and things really took off. Now with web based interactive games you can play with or against people from around the world. But all of that can trace its Genesis (pun intended) back to the original Pong.

As for me, back in the day I used to play Castle Wolfenstine and Doom for hours at a time on an old 386 with a flickery interlaced monitor. Found out I have a seizure disorder that way, so I guess some good came of it. After I upgraded my hardware and got my meds sorted out I spent quite a bit of time with Duke Nukem 3D, Need for Speed III Hot Pursuit and MS Flight Simulator Pro.

These days I?m far too busy to do much gaming. Between being a mailler, a home owner and the time I spend here on the boards I just don?t have the time to mess around with video games any more.
