Play every day at lunch. Get to smack down my co-workers. Usually we play Counter Strike or Rogue Spear. Much fun.

The new COD4 is amazing. If you haven't seen the videos on youtube, go and search for COD4 Death from above.

My boys gave COD 4 for Christmas. My video card doesn't support it. Time for a hardware upgrade. :D

It's one of the few games that I feel is worth it. My bro in law is freshly retired from 20 yrs as a SF, Green Beret, Ranger, etc. guy and he said it's as close as you can get to the real deal.

I usually find a game and play it to death, Quake2, Battlefield 1942, I haven't been able to put down "Rise of Nations" for about 3 or 4 years now.

Apparently I'm the young kid around here. I started with a 486 complete with a turbo button back in 1994. It had 4 mb of Ram and a 50mb hard drive and cost about $4500. I was only 12 so it was obviously my parents but I was the only one that used it. We had Windows but everything ran in DOS so I couldn't figure out why I had to install all 32 floppy's of Windows for nothing! The first games and about only games I played for the first year or two was Wolfenstein! and DOOM. I miss those days!

Ahh yes, Spear of Destiny, good times. I used to love taking on the guy ( if I remember correctly) Barnacle Bill. :)

Battlefield 1942 was about the last online game I played on a regular basis, fun stuff.
