I was reading the posts about E3, and this reminded me that one of the things that made me discover BR was when I heard "You" on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (I think) when I was 16-17. That alone is a good reason for me to like videogames :D 
Well, I've been playing them all my life,I started when i was 5, thanks to my father, and I haven't been able to completely stop playing ever since. I guess i'm something in between a casual and hardcore gamer. Sometimes i stop playing for a while, then I start again. 
At least, I think it's better than being addicted to TV, cause at least you get to interact with something, and not just stare at a screen. Of course, it's not a good thing when you play 24/7, but that can be said about everything.
So ,what do you think? Like them or not? What's your favourite genre?

I love strategy games and some rpg's (strange for a mad pacifist i guess), but about a year now i'm bored ever with my favourites (TW, AOE and WC series). I heared BR at Crazy taxy, but back then i wans't into punk at all.

Yeah, video games! I too discovered Bad Religion through Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 when it came out! (I was at 5th or 6th grade back then so I was something like 10? Don't remember exactly)
I started playing at age of 5 or 6. My mom bought me a Sega Megadrive II and Lion King (awesome game btw). I'd consider myself a casual gamer. If I'm bored and there's nothing better to do, I might as well start playing something.

I play almost all kind of games. If it has good game playing/plot and I enjoy it, I play it. Graphics don't mean nothing to me. I have PS2, PS1 and Mega Drive II and of course PC. DOS-games are also the best. There are so many good old games that beat the new ones arse.

All time fave game is NHL '94. You just can't beat it. Other faves are: Doom, Companions of Xanth, Sonic series (especially first two), Gran Turismos, Diablos, Half-Life, Final Fantasies, Silent Hills etc. etc. List goes on :D

I've played a lot of the football manager series. ..a lot! I'm a huge fan of Half-Life too and I can't wait for the Episode 3 to come out. 

Oh and Pro Evolution Soccer is so much fun to play with friends while drinking.

I need to buy racing wheel for PS2 so I can play GT4 when drunk, hehe.

Although I officially became a Bad Religion fan about last year, I've been listening to BR in my youth. Playing games like TH:Underground and Crazy Taxi and I didn't even know. Surprisingly, Big Bang was one of my favorite song on TH:Underground, even back then. I still play video games (if you read my signature you can tell that).

Yeah, i've played many of the games you mentioned. I play almost all kinds of games, it depends on my mood. Love the AOE series, although I guess I suck a bit in multiplayer.. When someone else reaches the modern age, I might still be at the stone age, more or less :D I'm too slow.
I like first person shooters, they're fun to play when you need to kill someone but don't want to get the death penalty :P i'm not a violent person at all, they're just games. 
And I too used to play PES with friends.. It was fun to see them shouting at each other when someone scored a goal. 
I grew up with point and click adventures, especially the Monkey Island series. 
Right now my favourite genre probably is RPGs. I liked the final fantasy series since when i was a kid, as well as chrono trigger/cross. I enjoyed Xenogears, which isn't as popular as FF, but probably has the best story out of all the rpgs i've played. I think it was banned in the USA because of the mature contents. Has anyone played it? On the PC i liked Neverwinter Nights and similar games.
Maybe it's just me, but it seems that the quality of the videogames is getting lower with time. I haven't enjoyed many new games in the last years.

  The same here, but I was just 13 when this happened.
 
I don't have a favourite game, but I love to play Call of Duty 4, Counter-Strike, Age of Wonders, Age Of Empires 2, Age of Mythology, The Sims, Roller Coaster and many others. Talking about videogames, I don't have any experience with the sixth and seventh generations of videogames so my favorite videogames are Crash Bandicoot, GoldenEye 007, Mario Kart 64, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

If you get faster, you will see the best game mode is the multiplayer. It's amazing when you see the first troops attacking your village but if you can overwhelm them, it becomes even more amazing. Suggestion: Try 1x2 at easy or 1x1 at moderate difficult mode.

The original THPS rules so much. I used to go to my friend just to play it and Heroes of Might and Magic III. You can complete the game 100% in ~20mins with one character. Love it hehe :D

The Mega Man games on NES are the best games ever made, period.

Despite all the fancy new consoles, my favorite system remains SNES.
And on that, I will rock any of you at Super Mario Kart. You know, in case you were wondering.

I discovered Bad Religion because of Crazy Taxi on the Dreamcast when I was 8, and rediscovered them 2 years later when I got Crazy Taxi 3.

I love video games. Favorite genre is stealth (which is odd, because none of my favorite games are stealth games), but since I can't find that many great stealth games, I tend to play FPS a lot and just play in a stealthy manner. RPGs are also fun, but I have to stay away from MMOs, I get addicted too easily. If anyone here plays on Xbox Live, my GamerTag is the exact same thing as my username here, so send me a friend request or game invite. It would be fun to play sometime.

Favorite games:
Team Fortress 2, Crackdown, Rock Band, Saints Row 2, Left 4 Dead, Half-Life series, Deus Ex, Psychonauts, Dead Rising, and Fable.

Yeah growing up I played videogames all the time, I still play them now, but I don't really play very many current generation titles other than some sports games. I just don't feel real motivated to try out new games (other than some rpgs) so I usually just keep going back to the classics. Whether that be stuff on the first playstation, NES or even the ol' Atari 2600.

Have you ever played No One Lives Forever? It's kinda old now, but that was a fun game to play..I guess one of the best in the genre.. FPS with a lot of stealth.. And love scenes.. like this one:

No, I haven't, but I'll check it out - it looks interesting, and Monolith is one of my favorite devs - I absolutely adored FEAR and Condemned. Their sequels were not quite as good, but still fun. Condemned 2 up to and including the bear chase was fantastic....after that, not so much.

I am a hardcore gamer, but that's just because a lot of the games I play have great music on them.
