I'm a game-a-holic ... as a hobby I have always collected games, electronic or otherwise ... I love the concept of gaming itself, the strategies, the analysis, the team work, the imagination ... everything that is the essence of a game. Recently, I've been devoting some serious effort into game design as well ... we'll see how that turns out :)
My Current Obsessions (as of July 2018)
World of Warcraft
Heroes of the Storm
Diablo 3 (On XBox One)
Minecraft (On XBox One)
Yes ... I'm currently stuck on mostly Blizzard games ... love them all and have little time for others at the moment.
Non-Digital Games ... I owned a Game Store / Internet Cafe called Imagination Shoppe for a few years so on some level you could say I've played them all. We hosted tournaments, public gaming sessions, demos and so on all the time. Every Friday was Warhammer night which expanded into ALL minis ... I became a fan of Warmachine and Hordes. Weekends were usually some form of board game or RPG demo ... some favorites that came out of that were Warhammer Fantasy RPG (the latest version is REALLY fun) and the multitude of Carcassonne options.
We also were deeply ingrained in the Trading Card Games being an official tournament Magic the Gathering store as well as getting certified as an official tournament location for WoW TCG and Pokemon. Although Magic was the biggest one we had, including hosting several semi-nationals, I fell in love with World of Warcraft's own Trading Card Game. The game has an excellent rule system, great play and tons of tournament options .. in my opinion better than Magic (I have a whole argument for that one). Our favorite thing was Tuesday RAID nights ... up to six players, one being the RAID boss would play ... just AWESOME game.
Other than that we played a LOT of games ... I could go on for days :)
