Any gamers here?
I noticed this in New Posts, and started to reply, but then I realized it was on Solomon's Porch.
Well, I know lots of women who are into gaming. Surely there must be some here?
I'm mostly a roleplayer. I started out with AD&D, 1st edition, back when it was brand new. Nobody had PCs then, so the RPGs were all manually operated, powered by funny shaped dice, painted lead figurines and a good imagination. I also played and GMed a lot of Traveler, Aftermath, Fantasy Hero, Danger International, Call of Cthulhu, Shadowrun, Champions, and many others.
But as more of my friends are older with careers and family responsibilities, it's become harder and harder to get in-person roleplaying groups together.
So now nearly all my gaming is on PC. (No, I don't own any consoles, and don't want to: I like to be able to hack and mod my games, and that only works on PC. Also, the types of games I like tend to be exclusively for PC.)
I used to play a lot of EverQuest, then Star Wars Galaxies, followed by Worlds of Warcraft... but all those online RP games are endless time sinks.
So on to single-player RP games: the Baldur's Gate and Fallout series are my all-time favorites. I'm still playing Morrowind (with a gazillion mods), and haven't worn it out yet. I'm looking forward to Oblivion, and to Fallout 3, though both will have to wait until I can afford a major computer upgrade.
What are y'all playing?
Man's ego is inflated, his laws are outdated, they don't apply no more
You can't rely no more to be standing around waiting
In the home of the brave, Jefferson turning over in his grave
Fools glorifying themselves, trying to manipulate Satan
And there's a slow, slow train coming up around the bend.
