I am a fan of many books, I just like good scifi in general, especially when it has an interesting and engaging story.

[mention]Megan[/mention] Oh sure I love video games, I'm more of a retrogamer though. I've collected most of the major consoles and a lot of games on them, most of which I've actually beaten. I also enjoy games with sort of action role play elements like Deus EX, Skyrim, Watchdogs, etc. And I really love games with cyberpunk themes.

I'm more a retro gamer myself. What's the oldest game you ever played?

Spacewar.
it was literally the first video game and predates electronic tic tac toe.
Originally released in 1962 the game was played on oscilloscopes instead of screens and involved two ships fighting around a center of gravity.
it utilized a 2D version of orbital mechanics as both ships moved around the gravity well trying to hit one another.

later versions of it also had asteroids as hazards and the copy I have on hand is for the atari 2600
