DEVS, what are YOU playing?

Even though our own games usually are pretty physics oriented and in 3D and all that, I tend to play rather different games.

I really like classic strategy games and Tower Defense games. I play Strategery almost every day (on brutal difficulty, of course) and I'm quite fond of geoDefense too. I love how balanced and hard it is. Still have one or two levels to go. I play Pinball Dreams every now and then too.

So, what do you other developers like to play?

Blocked is about the only thing I have time for on a daily basis these days.

Kind of a hard question to answer for me.

For fun: I just finished up with Zombieville USA and iDracula (No endpoint, but I'm done with them for awhile.) I sometimes get distracted by iCopter. Next I'll probably be doing Edge and Galcon.

For research: I research many games to see their fun points and also their flaws. I play about 10-15 games a day, most for no more than 2 minutes before I turn it off.

That's a fair bit of gameplay. iCopter is quite the addicting one, most certainly. I guess if it stems from one of the most addictive online games ever, you'd expect it to be just that.

Here's a screen of my top played games.

Like most devs I play pretty much any game that I think I could learn from so the rest of my phone is pretty cluttered

No time for play, have to create... J/K. I finally got Fieldrunners so that, iDracula, and Bejeweled 2 every once and a while. Along with a handful of others I don't play that much. not much time for any of them though

Must be awesome to have your own game in there too

I WISH I had time to just play games (not much time between my regular job, my commute, my wife and working on the latest update to my game).

But I did get Wolfenstein3D and played through the first few levels. Ahhh, that brings back memories. I can't wait for Doom!

Ive been playing iDracula and a bunch of my friend's at PDAMill's games and once in a while hit Dizzy Bee or FieldRunners yet.

Oh and my own of course...
