      I’m more of an old school gamer – things like Stronghold, Zoo Tycoon and Rollercoaster Tycoon. My brother was really into these games when I was around 10-15 so I always ended up playing them too. I still have various parts of zoo tycoon in my head when I’m looking at the design of animal enclosures in real zoos or else contemplating the difficulties of breeding a yeti…
      More recently I’ve been introduced to games like super mario smash brothers, the legend of zelda and the new pokemon game for the nintendo DS. I don’t play them much myself but my boyfriend is obsessed so I hear all about the different characters, scenarios and strategies by proxy!

      Oh gosh!! I played lots on my commodore 16 and c64 when I was a youngfella. Driving games, exploring games.
      Rubbish at shoot them up which seem to be the most popular. Now I play chess cany crush and freecell on my phone
