Ahh Mechwarrior. I had Mech 2 plus the expansion pack. That was one hard game.

I love playing Doom on my xbox, but playing shoot em ups from Quake onwards (so the ones that were 'true' 3D) without mouselook just feels weird to me.

The only game I will start playing again is Command and Conquer. Therefore it is my only favorite game. Well, that and Star Wars Battleground and Battlefront.

I really enjoy Oblivion. The PC version mind you. The game isn't very good without all of the great mods out there that turn it into one of the best games around.

Also, the Myst series. They are really fun for a point and click style game.

I like WOW. Really the only thing I play.

I do like some of the more cartoony games though every now and again, just too lazy to hook up my WII to play the ones we have, and already beat Lego Indiana Jones on XBox, which is the only XBox game my hubby has that I will play.

By far, the Mario games-- both the main series and the Paper Mario games. The world just feels so wonderful and alive to me.

Beyond that, I love the Street Fighter games and I'm looking forward to the two Tekken crossovers that are in production.

Tabletop, I'm a huge Rolemaster and HARP fan. Also, it was barely in print for a whole year, but the Street Fighter licensed RPG was incredible.

I just finished "Heavy Rain" it was very original and quite good. I used the new PlayStation 3 Move controller which I've been liking quite a bit except for the dearth of good games available for it so far. I've been inventing Origami figures since I was a child.

I played Everquest for about 5 years. I have been playing Everquest II since it came out in '04. I enjoyed the entire Final Fantasy series. I'll try just about any RPG. and I love beating the crap out of my boys in Wii boxing.

I play on the Lucan Dlere server. I have a 90 Conji, 80 Fury, 73 Ranger. I am currently playing a 29 Guardian. I set all my experience to go into AA so I won't outlevel the quests in Nek and TS. Going back and doing all the quests that I missed the first times through.

I'm usually on for an hour or so week nights around 7 central. weekends for a couple hours a night starting around 8 central.
