I don't know what I should credit for my tastes in games but I am leaning towards boredom. I use to love playing UT2K4 or World of Warcraft, but after playing games since I was 12 I tend to play games now that make me think. If I don't want to think, I play popcap games. I picked Gnome as my desktop because it ships with chess. After reading this though, it gives me hope that a real game is finally going to be created.
