What video / computer / console games are you playing now?
I've been a life long gamer, from the earliest ADVENT text adventures, Trek games played on mainframes, and just about every computer game that has been out in the last 30 years. I especially love turn based strategy games. I was seriously addicted to Civilization V for awhile there.
My latest obsession is XCOM Enemy Unknown for the XBOX.
It is an amazing update to the classic XCOM PC game of 20 years ago. Equipping your squad of soldiers and sending them out to battle the aliens, one turn at a time. And the multiplayer mode is seriously fun too. Love XCOM, highly recommended.
My kids have been enjoying Assassins Creed III, which also looks way cool.
What games are you playing lately?

I missed the boat as far as PC gaming goes... never quite got the hang of the ones I've tried... they're too busy....
I just don't get "amusing" myself that way...... I'm sure it's good fun blasting things.....
"by degrees the flood of music drove all speculations out of his mind. It was as though it were a kind of liquid stuff that poured all over him and got mixed up with the sunlight that filtered through the leaves."
I was totally into Call of duty and tried them all and then went to Battlefield 3 which is amazing. All the online cheating caused me to revert back to my favourite tried and true which is Falcon 4 from Lead Pursuit. A very realistic flight simulator.
Was playing my Classic:Ironman XCOM game earlier today. It's definitely fun, but I still prefer the original. The new one is way too shallow on the strategic layer for my likes. I also still play Left 4 Dead 2, Civilization, Europa Universalis....mostly "strategy" games.
