Hmm...I don't do the 'gaming' thing anymore, so don't know most of what's being talked about!! (Paladin? Mage? what??????)
But when the original Nintendo came out, continuing on through Super Nintendo, I was totally into it. I spent countless hours playing -- mostly solo, although I was **really** into, and competitive, with SuperMarioKart. My brother and I would play it all the time, and esp. got into Battle Mode by the end. To this day, I still love that game. The original one, that is. ;-)
Favorite games were of course the super mario ones, the zelda ones, metroid, super pitfall, faxanadu, kid icarus...those types.
And I guess in my mid teens when computer games started having better graphics, I enjoyed a few of the Kings Quest ones, and Zork Nemesis (I think that was the name?), and a silly little game called Loom... but it was so cute and fun...;-)
These days the only computer game I'm obsessive with is Freecell. Sigh.
