Game Obsessions

Activeworlds is a 3d Virtual environment that runs via the net. I am both a citizen and a world owner there. I found it by accident, but I am so glad I did. It's fun.
Dungeon Keeper I and II
Here's a current image from the latest game I'm playing. (102102)

It's a fun little strategy game. Of course, DK2 has a lot more animation than DK1. I got a hold of the map editor for DK1 and have had a blast "building" the best dungeon I could. I'm still trying to get through all the levels of DK2. Definitely, if you play, get the patch 1.7 for DK2. The difference in play in so much better.

I have loved this game for years - at least...oh my god...10! I've been playing for 10 years and I still haven't gotten past the 20th level?! Oh I must work harder.
Anyhow, I tend to rest from it for awhile and then come back to it and be just as enthralled with it as I was in the past. It's just fun - your basic hack and slash and treasure seek. And it's so gratifying to hear the monsters die for some reason. Lately I've discovered that there are variants to the theme, including Pernangband. Oh my. And MULTIPLAYER. Where have I been?! I think I'm going to give some of them a try. (added 011502
Sim City
Sim City is an addictive game where you get to play mayor and god at the same time. Save a city, destroy a city or simply play for fun. (added 2001)
I didn't mean to get addicted, But these digital pets are loads of fun. I'm bearblue there, of course. (added 2001)

bearblue got their NeoPet at
It's a virtual doll house. It's not meant for everyone, because taking care of these sims is time consuming, but it's fun if you like that sort of thing. And I like that sort of thing. (added 2001)
A friend of mine recommended this game to me a long time ago, but I didn't pick up on it until early September 2001. Why did I wait so long?! It's a great pattern game and can stump you even if your good at catching it. One can play for hours on end. (added 2001)
Civilization III
Okay, I was a fan of Civ II in a big way. Civ III is a giant! The more I play it, the more intriguing it becomes. That's because it has introduced the concept of "culture" into the game. oooh. Must see if I can win. Oh, and I made a LJ community for it. (added 2001)
Black And White
053002 - I've been playing for weeks now. It has, besides my writing, otherwise living stuff and family, completely claimed my brain. Basically I'm playing God. The only problem? I don't think I'm very good at it yet. This game requires patience, patience and more patience. I always thought I was, but now I know the truth. (am still playing in 2003)
