Currently hooked on Guild Wars: Prophecies (but only in a 5-6 hrs per week way). 

Have recently come off playing Neverwinter Nights 2 and the W40K: Dawn of War series, and do the occasional bit of FEAR or America's Army for FPS release when time (and the missus) allows.

It took me ages to find these and did so by accident in the end.  They're called userbars and I got mine from userbars.be.  This site is one of many - just google on userbars (for your pleasure, there are n95 ones out there).

I've recently upgraded with an AMD X2 5600+ and an nvidia 8800GTS and all i've really done to utilise the increase is replay Oblivion but i'm more addicted to playing a pirates game I have that's old and runs 1024 max res...Thanks to lugh i might go buy neverwinter and try that next. I am waiting for CoD4 and Quake Wars to come out.

My partner and I are addicted to a MMORPG called Runescape

We find it easy and not overly complicated.

For Christmas, hopefully, we will be stepping on up to WOW - World of Warcraft.  As we know that the logistics of it is a little bit more complicated than runescape and might be more of a challenge.

We are just waiting till i get myself a new laptop at xmas time so we can play together.

It's a great game and well designed from a playability side, the full Zoom-out is somthing great and so absent from the new red alert.

I played the demo only and it's certainly not without it's bugs like monsters always getting stuck in mountains and then the master bot thing just charges my 300+ bots alone committing suiicide. (Yawn, so 1997) so did not get my attention past the demo.

In saying that I still mod and play the orginal Red alert 2 (and it's expansions) and Tiberian Sun to this day. Another long time Favourite is DuneII Nothing beats the orginals.

Most played game would have to be unreal tournament and UT2004 with it's vast array of mods ans mutators etc. (moregore, Sentinels, car launcher, cluster redeemer, vampure ut2004RPG)

Hah! The game i've been playing most of late is fire emblem for gameboy advance - i have very little time for gaming, so its mostly opportunistic gaming on my phone. . . If you have a handset capable of using it VbagX gameboy advance emulator is well worth it! Of course i've spent a little time with the mobile post of R-Type. . .

Just picked up Shadowrun for X360 yesterday for $65 from the warehouse.. this game rocks!! so under-rated its unbelievable! If you have a 360 (or vista for that matter) pick it up! its worth the rental at least..  For those that dont know its like unreal tournament 2004, but with magic and special abilities..
