Emulator? [In reply to] Can't Post

Not sure what that is. For playing Alpha Cent on newer machines? I just play it on an old computer I keep around.

Yep. [In reply to] Can't Post

Emulators let you play old games on new computers. I'm in paranoid fear my old HP will die for good and I'll never be able to play those old games again.

Occasionally [In reply to] Can't Post

I was an avid gamer in my youth during the days of the original NES and Sega Genesis. I didn't really keep up with the later systems though. I do occasionally play newer games at friends' houses though.

The only game I play regularly is Lord of the Rings Online for the same reason as Rosielass. The Tolkien aspect appeals to me. I've tried a few other MMOs but they haven't grabbed me the same way as having an alter ego adventuring in Middle-earth. DC Universe Online appealed to the comics fan side of me but the controls and bugs in that game are annoying.

I also play games on my phone, which I suppose counts (Tetris, Skater Boy, Words With Friends, etc.).

I love video games. [In reply to] Can't Post

I am currently still obsessed with Skyrim. I love the entire Elder Scrolls series. I also play a bit of LOTRO.

PC games [In reply to] Can't Post

Not so often as I'd like nowadays. I get a chance every second week or so. I enjoy Bioshock, LOTRO, Borderlands, Call of Duty, Lego LOTR, Dead Island, Prototype, Battle for Middle-earth II, Starcraft II, Elder Scrolls, Fallout 3, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Age of Empires, The Walking Dead (Consists of five episodes), Unreal Tournament, Quake and a few others I am too tired to think of. I enjoy strategy games and other games with great story lines.

Although, I'd rather be reading than playing games.

Poll [In reply to] Can't Post

Another successful poll, I thank you all for taking the time to respond and share your thoughts. So far it seems that more people do not play video games ( or have stopped to) but occasionally seems to gain some ground.

Please vote if you have done so yet!

Not that I don't like them... [In reply to] Can't Post

I have a PS2 and the LotR/Hobbit games, I just don't have time to play them :(

My 91 yo Mom, on the other hand, is a fiend with games!
