    I am curious to know when your not studying for IT certs or at work, what you get up to?. I personally like to play the computer soccer game called Pro Evolution soccer 6 or watch a movie.

    So the question is what games are you playing or movie you'd watch over and over again. Cheerio:D

    I love PC gaming of all sorts. Just finished Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and have just started Indigo Prophecy (Fahrenheit in the UK).

    Not a lot of time to watch movies, but I did recently watch Stranger Than Fiction and Facing the Giants.

    I also like watching NHL hockey and NFL football.

    Working..either some writing project or around the house or as part of the job hunt. In the evening, I unwind watching DVDs until bed time. Even if I had to time, I've never considered PC Gaming as a form of entertainment. Given a choice, I'd rather watch a movie.

    Its quite interesting to see that most people on the forum watch movies or tv shows to wind down. I also noticed a number of Lost, 24 and prison break on the list:D . I have recently started watching Spooks and must say can't believe I've left it till this long:biggrin

    like onoski (well almost like him) I have yet to see spooks, but now the DVDs are cheap as chips in virgin I am planning on picking up all the seasons so far

    I watch a lot of TV and movies to wind down, which is odd for someone who does not own a TV! i know i know, go figure!

    My faves at the mo are Lost, Heroes, Jericho and Battlestar
    i just finished watching all 10 seasons of friends on DVD (bought the box set)
    and have bought the James Bond ultimate box set too!

    So yes movies is my primary wind down
    but i have LAN weekends of mass gamage too, currently playing Supreme Commander, C&C 3, WoW, LoTR Online, BF2142 et all

    Can I name something *outdoors* or will I get lynched?

    When not studying, I'm either down the gym, writing my novel, or down the pub. I'm trying to cut down on the pub though. It's an expensive hobby :)

    When it comes down to actually putting myself in front of the TV, I prefer programmes to films, normally. Love watching dark/sarcastic comedy.

    Gaming-wise, I play Football Manager 2007 still. It's 2011, and I've got Nuneaton Borough winning the Champions League. With two of their star players being Robin Van Persie and Fernando Torres :blink
