Default Video Games

Hey, I thought it was kind of interesting, towards the end of the last meeting when Michael mentioned he was up late playing video games. I think a lot of us may be interested in that hobby as well. If you play video games, please list games you have played or currently play below:

Have played:
  • Starcraft 1 and 2
  • Diablo 1 and 2
  • World of Warcraft
  • Warcraft 3/DotA
  • Guild Wars
  • Too many others to mention, mainly RPGs

Currently playing:
  • Skyrim
  • Diablo 3 beta
  • Uncharted 3 on PS3

I don't play as much as I used to - having a family definitely cuts into those all day/night sessions I used to have, but I still enjoy playing from time to time. Anyone else play video games?

Tetris!!!! Also anything on Pogo.com

...clearly I am a hardcore gamer like that. Yep.

Most of my gaming "activity" actually consists of sitting back and watching my brother die repeatedly in sessions of Call of Duty (whichever number they're on these days), and mocking his seeming inability to stay alive.

LOL! That is why I don't play Call of Duty much... 15 year olds have much faster reflexes than me and I die way too often.

PC games, I played Starcraft 2 couple months ago... After finishing the campaign and couple of multiplayer skirmishes, I got bored and stopped... Maybe when the 'Heart of the Swarm' episode comes out, I'll play it again

As for PS3 games, I'm still playing SOCOM 4 from time-to-time... Finished Ninja Gaiden 1&2 so I'm waiting for 3 coming out this year...

I played most Blizzards games up to WoW. I haven't tried SC2, am looking forward to Diablo3 (when is this coming out?)

Currently play Street Fighter 4 occasionally when time permits.
Recently picked up Mario Kart for the kids so I may play that.

Seems like SC2 is the common ground for at least 3 of the club members.

Diablo 3 should be out "in the first part of 2012," which probably means by March or so. The beta is a lot of fun, and has a great story, but you can only play through act 1 so it's more like a demo than a beta.

I'd like to pick SC2 back up - the campaign was a lot of fun but I get brutally killed in multiplayer so maybe I need to learn some build strategies first. If time ever permits it might be fun to do a LAN party SC2 tournament.

ahh, i miss WoW. nothing screams loser like turning down plans so you can go on a raid with 39 other people, hoping to get that purple gear. oddly, i miss those days of endless raiding. (ex-alliance priest)

nowadays the nintendo 3ds is my platform of choice. that new mario game is pretty good. cant wait to pick up kart!
