I play because it's a nice distraction during breaks at work and between studying.

Oh, and there's that addiction thing, too. I don't have a problem, really! :D

Attempting addiction treatment with one recently purchased 1998 Dyna Wide Glide.

first treatment last Friday evening after work, and it seems to be working. I haven't played since then!

LOL - I expected someone to go searching stats to see if I really have played or not since then - I mean lying is a trait of addiction right?

no prob dmblbit (er, is there an abbreviation?!?) I'll play on rainy days for sure!

When the original tank killer game came out in the arcades, I was blown away by the graphics, but as a poor (really poor) college student I didn't have any spare change to buy play time.

Twenty-five years later I found "Tank Hunter" on Pogo.com and for years I made up for lost time, playing every lunch hour and on weekends (yes, I'm an addict).

Then I read about BZ Flag in PC magazine, and here I am getting my butt kicked from here to Sunday while I try to learn how to control this thing. Playing real people is so cool! But one of these days, I'm gonna get all of you!!! BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA! ;-)

also the price is right.

P.S. to why I play

Post by 94b20 deductillator » Fri Apr 06, 2007 4:53 pm

Since I've started playing, I've gone into therapy for newly developed feelings of alienation and inadequacy.

I just have a lot of nothing to do. Not to say it isn't fun. Heh, chatting alone doubled my typing rate, so it isn't without gain.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.

i play it rather than other games because it is all under your controll noautokill and you play with other hman minds and you dont fight robots you fight other people so you can trick people with the way we all think its just fun i mean can't argue with that.

I play because it's fun. And I also get a chance to learn techniques, work on strategy and meet great people. And then shoot them. :twisted:

Also because I get to be eeeevil. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
