The last time I played video games regularly was in college. My roommate and I were addicted to strategy games and Tetris, and we played a lot of the early on-line MUDs. In fact, a friend of mine is now married to a woman he met playing on a MUD.
Since college, I've made a point of not playing video games very much. I haven't owned a game console, and only periodically try out free games from CNET on my Mac. One winter about six years ago I did purchase a game, Icewind Dale, and played it for a few weeks, but then bailed out on it because it was too addictive.
Now two things are inspiring me to reconsider playing video games. The first is Craig Detweilers new book
Second, a friend is excited about the release of Starcraft II, and it's made me want to play it. It's the perfect kind of game for me to consider, I enjoy both the concept and the style of play.
My question is, do you play video games, and if you do, which are your favorites, what do you recommend, and how do you think about them in relation to your faith?
