I love Civilization!

Seriously... I have spent hours and hours crafting empires, only to get to the point of discovering ICBMs and then instigate a nuclear holocaust.

Anything where you can play with the destiny of millions... that's what I'm into.

I love it when I'm able to get to that point as well.  It requires you to be the most advanced, while having access to aluminium and uranium, which doesn't always happen.  In the newest version of the game, the United Nations can pass stuff which doesn't allow for nukes to be used.  That part sucks.  I had a huge arsenal ready to go and then they pulled that crap on me!  I gave up because there were just too many cities to destroy with tanks and troops.

I haven't played Civ IV yet.

I know... getting access to those damn strategic resources suuuuucks!  But I'm not above sneak attacking the Babylonians to get my filthy hands on some uranium. 

Usually, by the end of the game, nobody will enter into any agreements with me... it's pretty sweet.  I like how they all look mad at me by that point. 

I did engineer a diplomatic victory by playing nice once... that felt good, but not as good as it did to raze Moscow to the ground.

Mwah ha ha ha ha!

Once I discover fascism, that's the way I tend to go... it's a lot more fun that way... and no war-weariness.

Oh yes.

The form of government I use depends on the actual Civ.  For example, the Scandinavians (which rock by the way) work best with a Republic, Russians with Communism and the Americans with Democracy of course.  This is assuming you've purchased the expansion kits for v.3 which have Scandinavians. 

OK, I'm done being a computer nerd for the afternoon.   ;)

Matty the Damned, like Eric and Dylan, is an enormous fan of ultra violent first person shooters. Especially the ones produced by id Software. All of the Doom and Quake series of games (both storylined and arena style) reside on his machine. Half-Life and Halo are for losers.

For many years, I was content to play single user mode or just compete against AI bots. But finally (and with the acquisition of broadband access to Teh Intawebs) I decided to step up to online deathmatch, where you play in real-time against other pasty weirdos from all over the world.

I had spent years refining my rocket-jumps, grenade-leaps, strafe-shooting and all the other skills that the serious FPS gamer must have to make it against the dreaded Strogg. Confident in my kick-arse capabilities, I donned my crackwhore skin and connected to a server in Lithuania keen to have a fraggalicious good time.

Oh, the ignominy of it all!

I was totally creamed with 30 seconds of materialising in the game. By some fat 15 year old shut-in from Michigan or South Australia or somewhere ghastly like that to make it worse. I was utterly outclassed. Everytime I'd materialise some sexless freak would exterminate me, like Aunty Doxie obliterates Jakey in debate.

After 5 attempts the humiliation was too much to bear and I fled back into the gloom that is the Net, never to be seen again.

Single player mode is much better for the ego.

Well mtd I am talking about Xbox 360 games.  I dont do the computer games.  Only retards use keys to move and program Marcro's into their keyboards to speed up their game play!  I am NOT a fan of the computer versions of any of the games. 

Come on over to the darker side Matty....... XBOX is the way to go.

Not a chance, console weenie. Matty the Damned is an uber-geek. Not only is the machine he is using to slap you down powered by Linux (Fedora Core 6, Kernel 2.6.1.18-1.2868) but he built it himself.

That's how nerdy I am.

And the Macintosh types needn't start either, you lot are just as bad as the console-virgins.

Hi....My name is Grinch...   I'm a World of Warcraft Addict.  I have played since closed beta....  I am guild leader of a guild of over 100 discreet accounts and over 300 characters.   I consider Wii sports a form of exercise.  My next computer related goal is to tri-boot a system with Vista, Leopard, and the flavor de Jour of Linux (currently Mepis)

Wow! That is quite an accomplishment Grinch!
As for me, I'm a Console Gamer. In Love with FF series.
FFXII was a bit of a downer though anyways.

I Love teh strategy games like Command and Conquer. For the Pc.

Thinking of starting a Ragnarok Online server.... hmmm...

The Queen is a console diva, believe it! I prefer playing Resident Evil games, which I guess they just gave up making new versions of, so I am collecting all the previous ones. I also am a fan of the Final Fantasy series too but gave up when they made the ones with just the chicks..things just got a bit too complicated. I also have Scarface and the Godfather games to go with my movie collection. I also have my more simpler times when I just play The Sims....

lol, I agrees with teh queen.
Since FFX-2 it's been all downhill. The Dragon Quest series is supposedly really good.
My bf loves horror games, you should try Silent Hill, it's realllllllly good! ^^
