    I don't think the original GameYin would like it, but I would suggest that the term, "GameYin," has come to represent puerile, unknowledgeable types attempting to promote puerile and childish concepts.

    My estimation of their mental age, regardless of calendar age, hovers around 13 years.

    Their knowledge is limited and tends to consist of quotes from sites which they consider to be authoritative. Such consideration is often grossly misplaced.

    One means of tentatively identifying such miscreants revolves around their choice of avatar (which changes frequently) or signature. These are generally chosen (inappropriately) to suggest maturity and wisdom. What a joke.

    The truth emerges rather quickly once they attempt to put together five or so meaningful words.

    X-com: I still play that damn thing when I have a chance. I'm back into Fallout Tactics right now in anticipation of the upcoming game.

    And since Grin didn't give his response I'll answer for him and say that he enjoys a good game of lawn darts. Darts, as in blow dart gun. Lawn, as in damn kids on his lawn.

    Pretty much describes me, and I'm not 13, thank you very much, I wear a belt and my choice of boxer shorts is a personal matter...

    Back on topic - I think my favourite game of all time must be either Baldur's Gate or Deus Ex.

    Just read that Deus Ex 3 is in development - it's a prequel and it's more like Deus Ex 1 than Deus Ex 2.
    I would have to say Baldurs Gate and Neverwinter Nights are some of my favorite series.

    Other than that, Unreal Tournament, all the versions of Quake and Doom 3 was very fun, and if youre the type that can allow yourself to get drawn in, very scary

    Anything from bsd-games. Command line Monopoly can be fun. Also the African capitals quiz is hilarious, with countries such as United Arab Republic, Upper Volta and Rhodesia still being in there. Europe is pretty up to date though. (The eastern European ones always get me.)

    For the PC, My favorite is still the Half-Life series. Can't wait for Episode 3...

    On the PS3, my fave is GTA IV, though I love Rock Band, and have been playing a lot of Battefield: Bad Company online.

    You know what I'd really like to play is the original Tempest (yes I know there's a java version for the computer but its not the same as standing at the console)
