I’m mostly a strategy fan as well, especially 4X strategies (Civilization and the like). I do like RPGs though and especially RPG-strategy hybrids, hence why my most played game, along with Civ, is probably Mount & Blade. In any case, I’m also not playing as often as I used to.

Btw, did you have gaming/computer clubs in your countries back in the day (say, 15-20 years ago)? Me and my friends used to love going to the local club back then, playing all kinds of games (CS, Quake, Unreal Tournament, AoE, Tzar, Starcraft etc) on the 2-6 computers there. Then the Matrix clubs appeared, with about a hundred computers in each club, until home PCs and cheap fibre-optics made them largely irrelevant.
