Tell me what games you play, and why.

I admit it, I like those tests. And seeing the result on Mick's page was the final trigger after seeing it on dozens of pages.
I should admit, that I am completly not into all those strategy, egoshooter, RPG and so on games. I am more into cards, bubbles and bejeweled. (And I am very thankful I can't get the new bejeweled running on my PDA ...).
If you see me playing games from the first group mentioned, I do play them a bit ... differently. Yes, I do not only try to crash websites, or mark missing feeds, and other errors. If you take a closer look what I do with all the games, you will notice a special pattern in my personality, showing since my childhood. I remember having fun:
If you are a strategic person, you would also play my favorite games different than I do:
Now imagine I tell you that I like usability and I will be the first person to tell you what your application is missing. Sounds like I had a carreer in usability and testing ahead of me? Yeah right. Look at the jump'm'run example - I have no fun in doing things over and over again.
Board games, card games, RPG like? Nice things, and I envy people for their fun they have playing them. I have been asked to join such rounds, but I do have more fun observing people playing it, than trying it out myself. Been there, tried it, sucked each time. And my friends tried, they really tried *sigh*
Oh, games where you have to spin ideas and associations should be good for me - except, the usual reaction is my ideas would be too weird and off topic. (Wasn't that what associations are about?)
So, tell me what you play and I tell you if we get along. No, honestly. If you look at what games you like and what games you play how frequently, can you see a pattern too? I really would like to hear those. :o)
