Do You Play Video Games?

Do you play video games? If so, what are your favorite games?

We need a clarification here. What is a video game? Would any computer game not count as a video game? I play a lot of games, but not the kind that needs an overclocked GPU.

Very rarely for me. If I'm using a computer, chances are I'll be doing something "serious" whether it be for work or personal.

And even if I do play a game, it's something "geeky" like Mahjong or Sudoku.

Cheers,
ZB

A few times a week. It may turn into every day for a week or so too. I usually play role-playing games or real-time/turn-based strategy games. I am currently playing Diablo II - infact, have been playing this game since 2002 or something. Some of my other favourites have been Age of Empires (II and III) and Civilization III.

I remember back in college, we used to play Civ III till 3 am, go to sleep with our alarms set for 6:30 am, wake up and get playing again!! And we used to attend our classes at 8:30 am too!

--Edit
BTW Per, I would say that a computer game is also a video game, but not the kind that comes bundled along with the OS (no Solitaire, for instance).

"the kind that comes bundled along with the OS"... what kind is that? OK, your definition excludes "spider" which I sometimes play. My favorite two computer games right now is Einstein and dicewars. Dicewars is a flash game that I have downloaded.

I have attached a zip file with dicewars and a few other flash games I like.

When broadband will be available (in a country far far away Smilie) I think I'll get addicted to one of the above Smilie
