I love playing RTS type games like Star Trek Armada(1&2), Starcraft, Age of Empires and a few others.

I'm also playing an online game called farmerama.

I'm a big time Star Trek fan(look at my username closely).

Well, I've been playing Candy Crush since I've got my ipad in '12. Wood Puzzle (or whatever the name is) Wordfeud, Candy Shoot. I find it ridiculously relaxing, , mind numbing, winds me down.

Right now I am playing Carrier Batles for Guadalcanal.  It is a awesome simulation of the Naval fight in the Pacific starting with Coral Sea ending with  the Bougainville campaign.  It plays on my iPad and modifies its scenarios so no to games are alike. It's a great game.  And the best part is the author is putting out upgrades every couple of months that improve and expand American.

I've been playing Ingress for a while now. I'm not sure I can clearly explain the game ... you use your phone to play, there are two teams, encourages walking, from there it gets complicated.

I'm a Nintendo nut, and have been since the NES first came out in the 80s.  I've been on a search for an NES Classic since they came out back in November, with no luck.

The two games I play most are Animal Crossing New Leaf, on my 3DS and Farmville 2: Country Escape on my tablet

I also still have my original GameBoy, with two games (Tetris and Super Marioland) and a battery pack.  It still works, but with my eyesight I'm not able to use it.  I can't see the older green LCD screen.  It took me a few tries to realize that the screen wasn't broken, I just couldn't see it. *G*  I asked a local pawn shop what it might be worth.  They told me they'd take it for $15.  I told them to kiss my hat. *L*  I'll hold on to it for another 20 years and see what it's worth then.

I do crosswords.   I rarely ever play games any longer.  I used to when our kids were young.  We bought the Atari 5200 when it first came oput, along with a whole box full of the additional game cartridges.  Daughter soon Mastered Ms Pac Man.  I swear she could damn near play that game blindfolded.  I never did learn that thing.  I did best on one of the space games.  The Atari controller had a telephone keypad, every button had two different functions, one switch the functionality from A to B.  It also had weapons buttons, two on each side of the controller.  The Kids and I played that Atari so much we wore out the joystick controllers inside, replaced them both under warranty and wore those out as well.  Once the warranty expired the cost of replacing the controllers was so high, by then the price of the whole game set had dropped to only $100, so we bought a second unit assy.  Wore those controllers out, replacling them under warranty then wore the new ones out again.  Shelved both assy's.  They are still on the shelf in the basement.  Many times I have considered ordering the parts as they are a common, or used to be common, duel channel variable resister 'pots'.  I should be able to find them through most any of the electronics warehouses.  I have just been too lazy.

I quit gaming after that, figuring my time was much better spent doing something more productive.

Son and Grandsons 'game.  They can't get much of anything done.  Waste far too much time glued to that screen playing stupidness.

Sorry, just my opinion.

I been playing Homeworld 2 lately. I bought the game most likely in 2003 but only installed it and never played it. I've done this with a few other games where it sat for years before I played them.
