Happens from time to time.  No idea why - it just does.

Who am I to question the vagaries of the world?

Aha, there are fellow gamers who pose as academics in the real world.  What a pleasant surprise.

Thanks moose for the Neverball suggestion.  It took me some time to find the windows version but once I downloaded it was not disppointed.  The levels sure got hard fast though!

I've heard that WoW is the best of the MMORG's.  That's why I can't go near it.  I can just see me playing this game endlessly and not noticing that my publication rate goes down.  I can just imagine a Wow guild... Ph.D's only please!  Now that would be a fun group.  One of the reasons I stopped playing MMORPG's is that there are too many 13 year olds who are just interested in powerleveling and don't adhere to the fantasy genre.

Anyone ever play a game multiplayer online?  Not an MMORPG but something like Diplomacy?

Ok, back to Battlefield 2. :)

I am currently playing a "paper-based" RPG online with friends across the country (sometimes world).  It is a joy.

I use MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) and various ROMS to (once in a while) play all the video games I grew up with.  Among my favorites: Robotron, Super Pac-Man, Donkey Kong Jr., Crazy Climber, Tempest, and a handful of others.

MAME is available for Macs and PCs.

Neat idea.  How do you make it work?

I'm a gamer of a different type - I play a BBC Sports golf game "Stroke it Lucky" about 10 times a day in-between tasks. I know it's not what "real" gamers play, but I've always enjoyed sports games, and this is a pretty good free game on the 'net. Also, miniclip "Ashes cricket" was pretty fun, but now that the Ashes is over, I've lost interest in cricket (plus I'm in North America).

this is so pathetic...

I played WoW for a while... but I truly can't handle the adrenaline rushes of gaming.  After a session I felt like running around like Beavis ("hehehehe.  I am Cornholio...")...

I'm on Cenarion Circle. I think a Ph.D. guild would be fantastic.

I play Reversi (also known as "Othello") online for about half an hour every day.  It's a great game, with ways of thinking that are a little like chess, checkers, or go.  I play for free online, against other human players, at games.yahoo.com.  As an added bonus, I've gotten into some great conversations with folks from all over the world.  Maybe I'll see you sometime on the Reversi boards!

A Ph.D. guild!  I'd definately be into that.

Where would you find the games to emulate with the MAME emulator?  Just online somewhere?

Bump. (No, seriously, I'm bumping this thread after six years.)

Untenured, are you still gaming? What are you playing these days, and who else is in?

I am mostly enthralled with iPad games at the present, but have lost a few hours over the last several months to Portal 2 (as per my signature line), Oblivion, Zelda: Twilight Princess, and Heavy Rain. I have Zelda: Skyward Sword winging its way to me upon release, but will not play it until classes are over, for obvious reasons.
