speaking of sex and gaming, my ex gave me head while i was playing CounterStrike really late one night.

needless to say, her efforts to get me into bed prevailed.

Amazing how that wins out over video gaming. ;)

(Though, by gaming, I was referring to true paper-and-dice gaming.)

and why can't you list gaming anymore?

Well, see, I used to be such a game addict. Hell, there was a time that I was gaming 6 nights a week. Even after that, though, i still had at LEAST one weekly game going, and usually at least two. I've been gaming (again, I'm talking D&D etc. here, not computer games) since I was 8, and I love it. It is, without question, my favorite thing in the world to do.

However, since I moved to the West Coast, my gaming life has run up against a brick wall. Either I cannot find anyone to game with, or when I do all they play is live-action Vampire. I have a few friends that game regularly, but for whatever reasons I cannot get on on those games (scheduling or such).

SO, in essence I went from constant gaming for something like 20 years, to complete shutdown. While in Seattle, I managed to get ONE game together, running 'Kult' for a few friends for about a month and a half, but then I moved to Portland. I had another chance to start gaming, but 3/4 of my players had to move away suddenly.

Needless to say, this hurts. Especially anytime I see someone I know post about gaming. I'm not mad at them or hold it against them, it's just knowing what it used to mean to me...and sadly still would.

yeah, when you first said gaming, paper/dice type was not the first to spring to mind.

no communities or anything that can help? that sucks...something you really enjoy doing, but needs other people, and no one available :|

wow
It hurts me to read you say that. Okay, I have TRIED to play this game, with no success, so maybe I am missing something crucial here...but with the tech age we live in, why aren't people video confrence/chat room gaming? Gone are the logistics/drive time issues. You could play with you old friends almost live, and they can't eat your chips or steal your last beer. Yeah, it might take longer, but then.....the play's the thing.

Re: wow
I've known some poeple who do...and I've even done it a couple times in the past. You know, it's nowhere NEAR the same. Not even close.
