    I’m pretty sure I’m the only girl who does, but I really like Call of Duty Black Ops. Minecraft is pretty close behind it though…

    I enjoy RPG’s like Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Zelda and sometimes Final Fantasy games (I’m not the best with their gameplay :/ )

    I like to get on dress up websites and choose the doll’s outfit, makeup, and overall appearance. It’s fun to customize!

    …Minecraft 🙂 That’s generally it. But when I play board games I like to play Apples to Apples, Quelf, and “We Didn’t Play test This at All”

    What?! How can nobody have said Ticket to Ride (& all its sequels) TTR is basically the best board game ever. Seven Wonders is also pretty fun. Ooo, I also love a French game called Carcassone, you build a map with tiles & claim territory.
    Pictionary Cars Game & Flux are fast fun games. 13 is a great game if you have just a deck of cards on hand.
    My family plays board games a lot. We’re super competitive, tears & shouting are all part of a game night, but it’s all in good fun.

    I’m not really a ‘gamer’ although I really like board games such as Life, Settlers of Catan, and Clue, and some not-quite-board games like Apples to Apples, and some card games like War, Shanghai rum, Baseball, and Kings in a Corner. I’m sure there are some games I’m forgetting, but that’s about it.

      Yes! Clue & life are awesome! & I can always go for a good game of war or Egyptian war.

    I love to play pounce (similar to Dutch Blitz, but more complicated and fun with a normal deck of cards per person) with my family (other families and friends just don’t take games seriously enough;) Playing LEGO games on the Wii is super fun with my brother! I love playing LEGO Lord of the Rings, LEGO Indiana Jones, and LEGO Star Wars!

    I’m all into online games…some which are not very appropriate for this site since they are shooting games, haha. But I also love video games and card games (that was my childhood).

      Prolly one of my favorite card games! I just have to be careful who I play with. My family is super competitive and blood has been drawn before. 😉

    The only games I really play that often are card games with my family. Mainly Euchre, Poker, gin rummy, and sevens. 🙂

    Posted by Marianna on March 14, 2013 at 12:26

    The Legend of Zelda series, particularly A Link To The Past, Spirit Tracks, and Phantom Hourglass. The Professor Layton series is also AMAZING, it’s a puzzle solving game that has good storylines, but beware, most of them will probably make you cry at the end.

    Posted by lilyworshipsongs on March 14, 2013 at 11:27

    I like the finding games where you basically look for a certain abject and try to solve the mystery…(like the nancy drew video games ^^) then after that, basically anything except word games…xD (other than book worm…book worm is fun sometimes…depending on the version…)

  21. Posted by JennArman on March 14, 2013 at 11:11

    I love games! Any kind of system (video games, board games, online, etc.) any type. It doesn’t matter if I’m alone or playing with others. I like them all!

    Im a gamer so of course i play video games. I think the reason I started playing video games was because my parents were to busy to play with me. so I started playing video games. by myself and found out there’s a whole bunch of worlds were I can escape and become someone else.

    I currently play two games regularly. The Old Republic (An MMORPG), and Arkham Horror, a cooperative board game.
    Around Christmas, all the in-laws get together, and we play a lot of card games (Oh Hell being the favorite).
    My brother-in-law is the one who got us into Arkham Horror. He also brought over Civilizations, and that was fun.

      My boyfriend bought Cards Against Humanity a while ago, but we have yet to find enough people to play it with since our friends have such conflicting schedules. >__< It's like Apples to Apples but with more…"interesting" options for cards.

        Posted by SlinkyKitty88 on March 19, 2013 at 00:15

        Oooh. I’ll have to look that up!

        Posted by Remedy on March 14, 2013 at 19:21

        Cards Against Humanity is the most hilarious and messed up game ever invented! It’s so funny/fun though!

    I LOVE board games. I don’t have as much time to play them any more, but when I was younger my dad and I would play them all the time. I recently learned how to play chess, which is fun. I think my all-time favorite game has to be Scrabble though. One of my friends made up a game spur-of-the-moment, and I love playing that one too.

  33. Dee

    Posted by Dee on March 13, 2013 at 13:56

    Well… I’m kinda into a variety of games. Everything from girly/sleepover games like MASH and telephone and a lot of charades-type-but-not-quite games (like where someone tells two or three people to act like they’re doing on thing, when the audience knows that they’re technically supposed to be doing something else, like sitting on the toilet), to chess, to Kingdom Hearts, to online writing RPGs, to word searches and puzzles. The only games I dislike playing are scrabble-type games. I dislike scrabble or Bananagrams or words with friends. And… I couldn’t vote for two on the who do you like to play with, but I prefer playing by myself about half the time so…

    Technically, the games I play are a combination of Adventure/Fantasy AND Performance. I play tabletop RP games with friends, and I absolutely love it. My boyfriend just started a weekly campaign of Pathfinder, and our friends come to our apartment to play every Thursday. =^_^=
