So, what games do you like and play most of the time?

I have four favorites half life, avernum1, geneforge and the famous warhammer board game.

Killzone, GTA San Andreas and A2. Might dabble in other games on the side just for a little bit of variety.

It depends what you mean: do you mean games that I just play a lot at the moment, or games I used to play a lot be of general laziness I stopped with them for now?

Anyway:

Games I play a lot now because I like them: Prey, Return to castle Wolfenstein

Games I really like in general (pretty much all games I have): Prey, retrun to castle wolfenstein, Flight Simulator X (and before that Flight Simulator 2004 and 98), Star Wars Battlefront II, Battlefield 2, Avernum 1, 2, 3 BoA, Dark Castle 1 and 2 (yeah, these black an white games from the late eighties).

I think that'd be it.

I spend far too much of my time writing or designing BoA scenarios.

I do dabble in Star Wars: Battlefront II though. And I've been playing BoE lately too... (hangs head in shame)

The game I've played by far the most was Civilization 4.

Other games that I've enjoyed for more than a few days were BoE, Master of Magic, Master of Orion, and, in no particular order, Geneforges 1 and 2, Avernum 2, Nethergate, SubTerra, Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, and whatever else I am forgetting.

Currenly, my limited playing time is spend mostly on KoL (Kingdom of Loathing) and sometimes Runescape.

World of Warcraft über alles.

When there isn't enough time for epic questing, Wolfenstein will do for a quick violence fix.

Before WoW, all my time was spent on Diablo II. Before there was Wolfenstein, there was Doom.

Best all time games of... all time: Fallout I & II, TIE Fighter, Age of Empires II, and Warcraft II.

When I want a game that requires thinking, I play Civ4. (And play it well enough to win some competitive events, while we are at it.)

When I want to be amused, or to do some light grinding, I play KoL.

When I am too tired to think and just want level grinding, I play Runescape.

Right now, I'm playing my own, somewhat lame, Visual Basic games.
Other stuff... solitaire, minesweeper, pinball. Most games I'm holding off till the summer to play, when I have more time to do it all at once.

"Or" in that sentence is a disjunction, rather than an explanation. KoL is a parody of a MMORPG, built entirely from jokes. However, all jokes get old after a while and the game can also be played as a regular MMORPG.

Summoning Anti-Sausages never gets old. Neither do Soylent Staves.

Grinding to turn up Freddy Krueger references is never not funny. And who in their right mind would want to miss out on a Talisman of Baio?

I found KoL fun, too, for a while, but the ultimate joke of it seems to be that it reproduces grinding. Which is also funny, I guess, but the punchline is too long. After my tenth barbecue team, my enthusiasm waned.
