Just because of curiosity:
What kind of computer game(s) do you play?

My favorite games are Gnome Sudoku and KDE Patience. So you see that I like casual games which require some thinking.

Greetings
Peter

Lots of things, usually shooters and RPGs, though more recently I gravitated more towards puzzle games, platformers, and Metroidvania games. Found that playing "7 billion humans" is quite fun, but not after work. Had to reserve it for the weekend. After hours of banging my head against a programming language already, I really don't want to continue doing so in the afternoon.

No.
I found it here:
(EDIT: I took away the link. Use google to find it if you want.)
It's not my favorite game category.

FreeCiv, single player mode. A lot of FreeCiv. And occasionally FreeCol. I'm terrible at them, but I play them on easy mode, often leaving them in the background for days at a time and dropping into it from time to time for a turn or two, as a means of distracting myself between other things.

Aside from that, I have a number of games, including several in my Steam account which I haven't gotten around to playing (e.g., The Stanley Parable, Psychonauts, Never Split the Party). Many of them are somewhat older, including most of the ones I've actually played. I have yet to finish most of the ones I have played, assuming they have an endgame at all.

Top among the ones I've actually played are Fallout (as in, the original 1997 game), Fallout: New Vegas, Half-Life 2, Portal, Thief: The Dark Project Gold edition (again, the late 1990s game, not the reboot), Hearts of Iron IV (which I only just started and am truly awful at so far), and Crusader Kings II (which I can't for the life of me figure out). I used to play TF2 a fair amount, but whew, that community, talk about toxic...

I played a little of Undertale, Pony Island (which is not at all what the title would lead you to expect), and Bendy and the Ink Machine, but got stuck and/or distracted halfway through each. They are good games but I never got back to them for one reason or another.

Lisp programmers tend to seem very odd to outsiders, just like anyone else who has had a religious experience they can't quite explain to others.
