Dragon Quest slime controller for PS2  

Games I Play

I have always liked playing board games, and was rather serious about chess in high school. Though I became involved with computers in the early 1970's, I avoided video games because they take so much time to play and because programming that era of computers was game enough in itself for me. After I retired and had the free time, I began playing console games and am kind of glad I waited, as it gives me something new to do by myself in my old age.

Most of the games I play are story-oriented role-playing games of Japanese origin (J-RPGs) with good stories, significant character development and ideally with strong female characters.

I am in my sixties, with deteriorating eyesight and hands damaged from too much non-ergonomic use of keyboards, so I may play games differently than some people do. But I still have a lot of fun!

* These are games I have played repeatedly with my two grown children. (That's why I own the multitap.) They are PC gamers, and well familiar with Baldur's gate. We are rather less fond of the EverQuest universe, and hate Firiona Vie with burning passion.
