When I'm not gaming I'm working :( but I go the gym 3 times a week after work, I like to watch the football (soccer) and watch movies or anime. I don't get time to do anything else because I'm always tired

I enjoy watching movies, and also like to play football and tennis. Still at college at the moment though, so I'm sure my time playing games will decrease further after that.

Lifting weights, going for long bicycle rides, or watching movies. In November I'm starting mortuary college so I'm going to stop gaming until I finish school (about a year).

A time to work and a time to play.

When I'm not gaming I'm usually watching sport. Football, American football, ice hockey, basketball, sometimes baseball. Other than that I play Warhammer 40k with friends, then there's the usual stuff everyone does like watching TV/movies etc.

I played Warhammer for a bit in high school (fantasy chaos) 15 years ago. I thought that it would be nice to have a constructive hobby again so 8-9 months ago I went into my local wargaming store.

Good Lord!!!!!

Everything is plastic now and is priced ridiculously!!!!!!! Back when I played everything was pewter. Is plastic not cheaper?

Oh well. I still bought a few paints, brushes, and a box of Empire handgunners. Already have them painted but I might switch to Chaos Space Marines.

Yeah I used to play back when they still had pewter models, but only recently got back into the hobby. I was also surprised by how things had changed, from the plastic and resin kits to the prices. I thought it was expensive 12 years ago! I used to play Eldar but over the years, between growing up and many house moves, most of my army got lost so I've started playing Orks now.

Aside from gaming, I'm really into movie collecting. Granted not old movies, but more newer ones I can watch with others. The only films I enjoy in my alone time are horror flicks, as nobody seems to ever be into them. I find them intriguing. Other than that, I hang out with friends or family, and i used to be into photography when I had more time and patience with uploading and all that jazz.

I'm usually doped out of my skull. I avoid exercise like it's bad for me. I have trysts and minor sexual dalliances, often, and indiscriminately with men, women, and certain pets or farm stock when pressed. I deal in vending machines, and small personal loans. In my spare time, I also enjoy getting involved in labor negotiations, preferably with a baseball bat, or a cricket bat if overseas, as they won't allow a proper Louisville Slugger in the overhead compartment anymore after that 9/11 bull****. I enjoy sketching models in the nude... They're not nude, but I AM. I tinker often with rotary engines in the spirit of my mentor, Wankel. I like to hide raw chickens in my trousers, and run past a wolf pack. On Sunday mornings, I like to streak my local Lutheran church, yelling "Catholics STILL rule, you PUNKS!" ...

Nah, I'm just ****in' with ya...

... I'm an audio engineer so I'm in a recording studio or mixing live shows. I haven't had anything intoxicating outside my girlfriend's kiss in over 14 years, and I've never had the misfortune of appearing naked in public, by accident or on purpose.

I'm a pretty boring dude.

I guess I DO avoid exercise, though... THAT part is true.

Nice thread. It depends for me, it depends on the season. During summer I'm definitely working out and doing editing/3danimation/sfx, but during the school year (just starting 2 weeks go) im studying, studying, studying. In fact, my taste in games changes as well. During the summer I like games that are just pure gameplay (something to engage my mind in). However, during the school year, I like games where I can just lay back a bit and/or are just mindless- either games heavy on cinematics/story or mesmerizing games (like dyad, where instinct becomes second nature). I think this is b/c my mind is tired from studying, so I prefer games that are mindless.

Hobby wise I don't do much else. I work full time and also work out for an hour a day but to be honest I'm a fairly boring person. However, I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my work but it is quite tiring so I really don't want do anything else but relax, game and Internet when I am off work.

And yes, we ALL need our avatars back!!! Y'know, usually, time allows web designers to get things to work BETTER... But not at Time-Warner, I guess...

... It's actually been kind of nice, the "anonymity" of the technical ineptitude around this site lately, in terms of people not seeing my smiling chimp, so then they (some of them) DON'T gloss over my posts like "Oh, it's THIS guy again... "

What's with all the copy & pasting of people "lifting weights?" That's what I find hilarious. Not happy with who you really are so you try to make it seem like you're really not cheeseballs vegetating on your couch freaking out on the newest flavor by Mountain Dew?
