Zealeus has been gaming since my parents first got a 286 back in the day. Eventually, we got the 486 and Eye of the Beholder...I was hooked. And then I learned about BBSs and spent way too much time dialing in and playing L.O.R.D., Usurper, and Trade Wars and I became an addict.
My next addiction was turn-based strategy games like the Civilization series and my favorite game of all time, Master of Magic- truely the first game I became massively addicted to.
I dabbled in various other games over the years, usually returning to strategy games, until my next addiction took hold: World of Warcraft. I played for a few years and raided until Burning Crusade game out and finally got burnt out from the massive hours required to successfully raid with a decent guild.
I took some time off until I found Team Fortress 2 and my guild which I played for a few years and still play.
Besides TF2, my gaming tends to lean towards strategy games like Civ and RPGs that don't require too much thinking and are somewhat linear. This means I crave for Diablo and Dungeon Siege, while I never could get into sandbox type games like Fallout 3 and Morrowind. Of the RPGs, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is easily my favorite.
