    I don't tend to play many computer games - far too distracting from work. :)

    However, I still play Panzer General and Allied General a lot - ancient turn-based WWII strategy games from the mid-90's, and now free online.

    Last game I bought was Doom3 - hated it - felt like I was living out someone else's fantasy, and I couldn't relate to it. Loved the original Doom, though.

    Game before that was Operation Flashpoint - first-person combat simulation - even got involved in the modding community. This was before I really took off building websites, and really found the modding experience really helpful for when it came to editing PHP later on. :)

    I am kind of down on games right now. I got addicted to MMORPGs about 7 or 8 years ago and they have ruined my life. I don't have much time for gaming now, although I have been switching back and forth between World of Warcraft and Everquest on ocassion.

    Am I a loser if I admit I have never played counterstrike?

    My favorites are classics. Hexen, the original Quake, and the original Doom. I played those things endlessly!

    Triumph, I will hang my head in shame right alongside you because I haven't played it either. We'll just have to find other ways to be cool. :cool:

    I'm more into strategy games. Recently, I've been playing Diplomacy for the PC. It's based off of the board game, and it's very cool.

    If you like turn based strategy games it's got to be Civilization 4. I've played/been addicted to all the previous incarnations of it and this is easily the best. Have had many a late nights turn into early mornings playing it :D
