An ex-girlfriend once told me "it's me or the video games". Hence the ex.
Okay, I made that up. But it's not far from the truth.
In case you didn't already figure it out, I am one of those avid gamers, capable of 30-hour marathons without batting an eyelash. Been one since 1985. I hold Warren Spector in the same regard others would Ozzy Osbourne or George Clooney.
These days I mostly spend time ensnared by my Xbox 360 and PS3. My wallet hasn't been able to keep up with today's PC demands for a long while. That's not to say I don't clock in the odd hour on PC as well.
Regarding genres, it's more about what I don't play. RPG's, old-school point & click adventure games and driving games hold the top tier, but are certainly not alone. I mostly shy away from MMO's and most sports games.
My handle on all platforms - Xbox Live, PSN, Steam etc. - is Wasara. Please don't take offense if I don't add you back immediately. I like to know who I'm playing with.
