    Hey BHW members!

    Since joining BHW i have been seeing people discussing about many things other than SEO and moneymaking but haven't yet seen a thread about Gaming interests of the BHW members.

    I was a crazy Gaming freak before joining BHW and starting my IM career but now i hardly get time for Games. My PC game favorites are Counter Strike, Need for Speed, Age of Empires, etc.

    So i just like to ask you about your experiences as a Gamer (if you are/were) as most of the computer freak people are crazy gamers. Are you one of them? Share your experience! :D :D :D

    I was into gaming the first year I started computing.
    I used to play "Descent". That was back in the days
    of Windows 3.1. It ate up all of my time for about
    one year. Then after I got through all of the levels,
    I hung up my gamer's hat. Although it was a lot of
    fun, I realized that I wasn't getting anything done.

    Haven't gamed since . . . :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Who isn't a gamer nowadays?

    I personally consider myself a gamer, even though I don't spend more than 1 hour per week playing games, since I don't have the time.

    Favourite games must be some classic ones like: Quake 2, Half-Life 1, Super Mario 64, Sanitarium, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment, Fallout 2 and Septera Core...
    But my latest fav games must be Skate 3, Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 on Jailbroken PS3 :)

    Used to play a few games, but I was never really a big time gamer. I see too many of my friends wasting their time playing PS3 and Xbox all day. I personally find it to be a waste of time, but again, we all have our own hobbies. :)

    Oh geez where do I start.

    My current game of choice is Starcraft 2, I play in tournaments and stuff to make some fun side cash when I am not busy with my seo clients and such.

    I am a sucker for the old console games like mega man, super mario, final fantasy, etc...

    Just bought stock in Activision Blizzard Inc. before Diablo 3 comes out and it will spike due to that and the fact that starcraft 2 isn't done expanding on the franchise.

    So yes I play vids, have thousands of hours logged, and I make money doing it :p

    I love games. Don't have much time to play anymore sadly. I love all the Mario Bros games. Liked Halo and want to have time to enjoy the WII but not yes.

    I have a game forum but need to probably sell it b/c I have no time with everything else to play the games and stay active.

    I can tell you though I have a ton of members on that forum so I know gaming is still very much alive.

    Later

    I am a gamer, I don't game a lot, I liked PS1 games better than these new games, 99% of the games i download are pirated, only multilayer games I pay for (NOT World of Warcraft, don't like MMORPG), I bought 2 games for 120 euro recently

    Battlefield 3
    Modern warfare 3


    If skyrim doens't come on torrent tomorrow, I'll just buy it (can't wait haha, people say it's epic).

    At this moment...not really. I hope in future i will have more time for games. In the past...hardcore mmorpg. I spend around 7 years playing Lineage 2 all day. My brain is still damaged. I like a lot of games but my favorites are: GTA, Driver, NFS, UT and Tekken.

    Runescape. Now, before you scoff, that game taught me how to WORK hard to get a reward. I mean grinding away for days on end to get some logs or something.. then selling it for a hat..

    Other than that, I'd say, GTA4, and GT5. I'm 21, and I pay GTA4 every so often while i'm waiting for various things to complete.
