Reading, gaming, boardgaming, in that order. Yeah, I said it. Also anime and movies. Books, anime, and movies are mostly science fiction.
Start date: the 6th of July, 2007.
I'm partial to Nintendo but I go where the games are. I play computer games, but only a few that aren't made by Blizzard. I love to read books, particularly science fiction, and to play board games such as Axis & Allies, Civilization (original Avalon Hill, not Sid Meier!), Empire Builder games (like Eurorails), and, yes, Monopoly.
Gaming History: Got an NES at age 6, and loved it. I also got every Nintendo system that came out other than Virtual Boy. Got a Genesis and Sega CD -- it rocks, and Sonic CD is the best Sonic! -- as well as a Game Gear, but was only vaguely aware that the Saturn existed. Got a Playstation and N64 at the same time. (Played the N64 more.) Never got an Xbox or PS2, though I did get to play through Halo and Halo 2 on Hard mode. Part of the reason was that I got seriously into StarCraft and Diablo II. Later it was various Internet timewasters (not porn or stupid Flash games, though!)
Relatively recently: Got a used Dreamcast in 2005 (what a sad, beautiful swan song for Sega). Got a DS (and then a DS Lite). Got a 360 in 2005. (Ebay! Got another.) Preordered my Wii. Got a PS3 in December 2006. (I used it mostly to play PS2 games for the first year.) Got myself a PSP for Christmas 2007. I don't like having to pay for Xobx Live, so I don't.
