Default Any Computer Gamers out there?

I've been a Gamer Girl since the 70s and I first played Pong at the bowling alley, we would drive 6 miles and put down our quarters and stand in line. I played Dungeons and Dragons before it was Advanced Dungeon and Dragons, was the only girl in Jr High Chess Club -- my nerd credentials go on and on.

Currently I play World of Warcraft, I stopped for a few months but hubby asked me to start up again because he wants to play. We met on-line in February 2001 playing the game Everquest and by 2003 he had moved from Michigan to Seattle. This year will be our 15th wedding anniversary.

I also play games on Pogo, mostly word and solitaire games, but I also like mah jongg and "puzzle" type games. Lately I've been playing a lot of Boggle.

***raises hand***

I mainly play single player games. If a good MMO comes out I will play that. My first video game was Anarchy online, loved that one. My all time love is Skyrim and Skyrim SE (we won't discuss how many hours I have into those two.)
Played Fallout 3, 4 and New Vegas, the Dragon Age series, the Mass Effect franchise. And the Mafia series, I have had so much fun with this series it's not funny.

I have done best testing for several MMO's too. Some I bought some I never looked back on.

MMO's I dabbled in were:

Guild Wars 1 and all its expansions, haven't tried GW2 yet.
Star Wars The old Republic
Vanguard Saga of Heroes put out by Sony, played that one for 3 years.
Rift was good until it got too cartoonish for me.
ESO (Elder Scrolls Online) until general chat turned into a cesspool.
Fallout 76 Don't even get me started in how bad this one is, what a fiasco!

My husband gave me a Fire Tablet for Christmas. I play those find object games for free (free up until its gets good then they want you to pay for the rest of the game.) I watch movies on it, my tv shows and read books on when we travel.

I have Mah Jong on my laptop as well as my Fire tablet.

I just play games on my phone. Mobility ware solitaire, Temple Run 2, words with Friends and I play Boggle but only with the coach - Mr Stitchnripper plays those games but on his computer he plays Fortnite only because the youngest grandson asked him to and he plays a few other games. He has a two groups of men he plays with - one via Skype - his old game group from where we used to live. Now they Skype him in. He found another group of men here that play on Sunday afternoons. I am otherwise occupied so this works for us. We are both retired.

I love Backgammon, but prefer to play against a machine. I also like Klondike Solitaire and puzzle games. I have one called Fishdom, that I've played so many times I've lost count.

I started gaming last year as a way to spend enjoyable time with DH. We bought two PS4 out of last year's tax returns and play on most weekends while the girls nap. We play Tom Clancy Ghost Recon and the Division, as well as Call of Duty WW2. We like to play closed session multi player with each other.

Lyric Girl, my DH loves the Assassins Creed games! In fact as I sit here saying this, he is playing one right beside me. I wish they had made Syndicate was a multi player so I could play with him.

I only play against myself! I play Solitaire Alterations, and Mahjong Titans, Crab Layout. It's the last thing I do at night, and limit myself to 1/2 hour or less.

Lyric, I've often been tempted to buy a current console just to play Assassin's Creed. Although I had the first Atari of anyone I knew and kept up with them for years, last "modern" one I had was a PS2 which has broken down. Son upgraded before/after he moved out but that was the last I played. Loved the first couple of Spyro the Dragon games. I do have my old Super NES hooked up on the big TV. Often after watching Survivor I like to play a little Diddy Kong.

My son's friends (we are here in the Seattle area and several work in the general industry) who know me also recommend the Lego games like the LOTR one.

I play Tasty Blue with my grandsons on computer. I like the Flip Pix games and play those on my Kindle Fire. I still have the first Atari system, first Playstation and first Xbox, my kids had but never cared to play much if at all. I don't even know if there is a tv they will connect to anymore. LOL

I only play free slots.

I guess that makes me a cheap gambler.
