I was an addict on the Everquest Veeshan server. I was going to move to WoW, but then my girlfriend (at the time) said marriage or Warcraft, you decide. I made to smarter move. I feel fortunate that I have not only a gorgeous wife, but one that carries a bigger gun than I do on a regular basis!

Curtis27.. you need to do what I did.. get the wife hooked..then she can't complain about how much time you spend playing, because she's playing with you (my wife and I each have characters that we only play while playing together).

Yeah... my wife raids 4 nights a week, has arenas 2 nights a week, and farms constantly for consumables for her raids. She PvP'd for 4 solid months, anywhere from 10 to 18 hours every day, 7 days a week, in order to earn her High Warlord rank. She was the first rank 14 priest on our server, and is the only one to have ever hit it as a healing spec. I used to raid 35+ hours a week (2 raids, 2 servers, 2 different level 60's) - I just can't do that anymore with my job.

I'm starting to feel out of date. If I play anything it's the old Diablo 2 online or Unreal Tournament off line.
What can I say?

I generally play BF 2 right now, in fact just got off. Frustrating playing with guys who don't clue into the enemies tactics despite them using the same one again and again! Trying to stop a full quad by yourself is painful!! A good commander or squad leader really makes the game enjoyable, I hate bunny jumpers!

When my kid & wife let me, I also play Steelbeasts 1 (can't afford the SB 2 pro right now) A very excellent game used by many armies to train in armour tactics. This game requires a great deal of brain power and tactical awarness. You can be a gunner, tank commader, platoon commander or command everything, you can make your own scenarios with an excellent map editor, graphics are dated but the game play is good and true to life.

I said over in Pete's thread, that we so rudely hijacked (sorry, Pete), my wife and I play WoW. I still have some characters left back on Shadwosong, but we play mostly on Burning Blade. I have a couple of Horde, but for some reason I could just never relate to them very well. Now we play almost exclusively Alliance.
Sounds crazy for an old phart, but I started out playing Yserbius on the Sierra Network, then The Realm, DAOC, EQ (5 years) and now WOW. Lots of others that I tried and never connected with. I am starting to wind down a bit now, but it's fair to say thousands of hours of MMORPGs, not to mention single player games. I never got into game consoles much, my kids always slaughtered me on a controller...

WoW (Centarian Circle, Alliance Warlock named Deteriota) on the computer, used to play PS2 games with teenaged son before I got too uncool, started it all by playing video arcade games and Atari in college.

PS2....Navy Seal 1 and 2....Gobel conflict 1, 2, and 3....Ratchet and Clank 1 and 2....Gun....and of course GTA the series. I like first person shooters. I have several I didn't care for so I have to see what kind of trade in I can get for them. I have first generation SIMS on the computer. I can control their lives...something I can't do in real life....LOL. My all time favorite and the one that got me hooked was DOOM.

I somehow left this one off my list!!! I have SB2 and SB1. I *love* them. That thing isnt so much a game as it is an exercise in tactics. and youre exactly right. Its just as much about tactics as it is about shooting. Playing it on-line gets about as hairy as I've ever seen a game get.
