I go through gamer phases.  I used to really be into WoW (like 8 hrs+ a day on it), but then it just got too dumbed down for me. Every once in a while though I have a ping to pick it back up again, but I never do.

Love Minecraft, again go through phases where I pick it up and play for like a month straight and then don't have anything to do with it again.  For the past year or so I've been working my way through Far Cry 3 WHICH I LOVE, but if I get really stuck somewhere I will boycott and that's what's happening with that right now.  I've also been getting a pinch to pick up GTAV again because my boyfriend picked it back up and I love watching him play.  I may actually play it when I get home tonight...

I'm definitely more of a casual gamer now.  I love playing arcade-like games on my phone and on Facebook, I definitely am playing something on one of those platforms at any given time.  Right now I'm playing Ninja Up on my phone.
Aw I wish you still played WoW! I just got my legendary cloak 2 days ago! I'm so proud! Lol :D /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I wouldn't really consider myself a "gamer," but I do love playing Battlefield and CoD games; I'm actually pretty good too :p /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />
I actually uninstalled BF4 the other day. My hard drive kept filling up. I freed up about 40gs of space. That's insane! There was too many problems with it so I've stopped playing it for now.

@@glitzygal , whats far cry 3 like? :w00t:
It's great!  It's like...island mafia, haha  I really like BRIGHT games, and this fits the bill.  The graphics are awesome.  The story line is great to, it really sucks you in.  It's pretty old at this point so you could get it for like $15-$20 used and I highly recommend it!!

Do any of you play Elder Scrolls Online? I just recently picked up Skyrim on a whim (I've been an MMO player rather than a single-player-game player for ages) and it's completely eaten my brain. I've heard a lot of negatives about ESO, and I was wondering about your experiences.

Also: How many of you have a ready-made mental list of excuses to use in place of 'I slept late because I was up all night playing Game Of Your Choice'? :D /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I was a vanilla-WoW raider. I totally get what you're saying. I remember it taking our raid group forever to clear BWL back in the day... AQ40, original Naxx, original ZG...

With each expansion it just seemed to get dumbed down more, and recently I went back for a month, and I swear, it was like a vending machine. Pull handle, kill 10 mobs in a minute or less, come back and it dispenses a piece of green gear that makes your previous-expension-end-game-raid-epics obsolete. I was sincerely BORED. This, from the girl who used to spend hours trying to get up to every nigh-unreachable place in the game back in vanilla.

I think WoW players really are missing something now... it's all about getting to the top as quick as possible and you miss the story when you do that.  It's so much more satisfying to down that particular boss when you've been invested in hunting it down and working to prepare yourself and your group for that particular battle.  @Devotee You hit the nail on the head by saying it's like a vending machine now.

My boyfriend plays Elder Scrolls Online once in a while, he seems to enjoy it but I haven't tried it myself.

I'm straight up addicted to Fallout New Vegas like its no ones business. But the bf has gotten me into LoL recently (lvl 10 witches). Skyrim is definitely my jam after that. I've got nothing else for now :p /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I really enjoy gaming, but I go in spurts. I could play for 6 hours at a time for a few days, then not game at all for a few months. I have a PS3 that I bought just so I could play the Assassin's Creed series. I also pop in Dragon Age once in a while. I like playing The Sims 3 on my PC. I used to be really into Everquest when it first came out and for the first few expansions. Overall, fantasy RPG's is where it's at for me!

I have the new Assassin's Creed, Shadow of Mordor, and the new Dragon Age on my wishlist, but since I'm super busy until January I will most likely be able to hold off on buying them until they go on sale.   B)

I played the beta when it came out. It wasn't as organized as WoW is. It was hard to tell which quest you and your friends were on, or who was who because they all looked the same. I did like how you could make your character very customized but everything else I wasn't fond of. I would pick WoW any day over ESO

I used to play games.... all my childhood up until February 2013. I was playing Ninokuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and once I got to the Casino, I just quit. I used to follow gaming news on Andriasang, Kotaku, and Siliconera. I dropped games in total, and focused on my work and my life. In March of this year, I stopped by a gamestop just to browse, and noticed that Deception 4 came out for the PS3. Never even knew it was in development, and I freaked, since it's one of my favorite series of all time.... so, a week later, I had to buy it (along with the two Atelier games of Dusk, since I love the Atelier games too) and I played both of them for a shared total of a month's time. Just short of platinuming Deception 4, and stopping possibly midway through Ayesha, I stopped gaming again and haven't played it since.

.....excluding free time at work, I have a hacked PSP, so I play NES games here and there. ;) /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I used to be a gamer many years ago. Used to play Lineage II  online. It was fun, but a lot of time consuming, so I gave up with online gaming. Sometimes I play single player adventure games.

I love Ninokuni and all of the Atelier games.  Going along that same sort of vein, I really enjoyed Folklore.

I got Dragon Age Inquisition on release and was on my fourth file by the second week of having it. I destroyed that game and managed to get decent grades. -pats self on back- I took a break for basically the whole month of December because I made myself sick of it haha. I'll be back soon though... soon.

Also got the newest Pokemon game (Sapphire, whoop whoop!), and Bravely Default. Loving BD. It's got the classic job system from FFIII, with less shallow characters and WAY better graphics. It's going to take me forever to beat it because I'm obsessed with maxing out Jobs.

The Bae got a copy of Metro 2023 Last Light and The Last of Us from me for Christmas. I'm probably going to start The Last of Us while he plays M2023. I'm making the most of this break before school, dammit!
