I enjoy a game of ut once in a while, but not for very long and not very often.
I personally prefer strategy and simulation type games, sometimes welldone
rpg type games :) Some of my favorites are games like pirates, silent service,
X-wing, starcraft, mechwarrior3, bards tale, a handful of flight sims, ...

I think one of the things I'm really looking for is a definite story, but *I* want an
active hand in defining the story. A lot of games have a single thread storyline
and you're not so much a participant as merely a button pusher. The 'story'
attached to a typical fps game is virtually nonexistant and basically a kluge to
attempt to explain why you're on a gorefest. :) I have nothing against a little
gore, but I like to think, too. I'm not afraid to think a little, that's why I'm not
using windows or a game console :)
