How often do you play Descent?

Every day!
At least once a week.
A few times a month.
Rarely, I don't play games much anymore.
Rarely, other games are more fun.
Descent sucks, why would anyone play such a crappy old game?

To be honest, I can't remember how long it's been since I've really played, or even worked on a level. I've probably forgotten how.  :o

it was a tough one to vote on. I rarely play games, but other games are more fun. sorry. they're newer and easier to play. Easier as in, pop in the game and play. I don't have the Descent series fully operational, except right now, just Descent 1.

Every once in a while, typically blended with other games, but I'm trying to get more priority in things like PiggyDump.

I play at least a few times a week.  I'm trying to play at least once a day this summer because I have a job so I can stop using all my time to look for one!  I actually have free evenings!  And no homework!

But there are basically no singleplayer missions I haven't played yet (except a few that are way too hard for me), and there's no guarantee anyone will be online (and not to mention the matter of... Portal 2).
I also don't play games at all when I have a song idea.

I've only played multiplayer a few times this year and I loved that game. Any free time I have I devote to visiting forums or studying. I'm in my last year of college and internship and though it's easier now, I want to take my psyche course over again.

Off Topic.....@wazzazzle.... The recent thread you started that was closed. I thought it was brilliant and wished I saw it earlier.

I chose "Not very often, other games are more fun" because it's the closest to the truth. I don't play Descent very often, I'm usually playing other games. It's not that Descent isn't fun, it just takes a very specific mindset and mood to enjoy, for me. In multiplayer, it takes a willingness to get my rear end handed to me repeatedly and laugh it off, which unfortunately is not something I'm good at.

For me, it varies.  I sometimes switch from Descent to other games, other games to Descent, or other games to other games.

(I wish there was an option for it varies)

I closed it because Karx pointed out to me that I had not made it for the purpose I said I had - and I had been deluding myself too.  I'll eventually make a new one that isn't selfish.

I play at least once a week. I would play tons more, but all you see is tank infested levels, an Anarchy game in Veins that somehow mysteriously runs the CTF gametype, and the modded subway.

Frag Tag is one normal level that pops up often and I jump in there all the time.

I voted "Every Day" though, because that is my spirit!

Frag Tag is basically all I play now too.

I sometimes go to other servers and hope that someone else comes, but no one ever does.

I had to pick "Rarely, I don't play games much anymore" because I'd be lying if I said anything else. Never really been that much of a gamer, see, but it also doesn't help that I've been busy, busy, busy with other things in life, like school, personal projects, etc.

But as of late, I also have to admit that "Portal 2" has played a role in this.

...and the fact that I don't have Descent on my new laptop yet (but I plan on changing that today!)

During better times, however, I used to play at least once a month, typically D1, but occasionally not.

when unemployed and a linux system, I use to play Descent 3 (online) like EVERY night, ranging from 9 pm to 1 am or 2 am.

A lot has changed though. Now at best, I play Call of Duty: Black Ops (zombie maps) online, but only on Saturday, only time to really play it. Sometimes Fridays and or Sundays. But some days, no days out of week.
Gaming, forums, web browsing or cybering, whatever they call it, is not as interesting anymore. maybe getting bored with it. maybe life is getting too busy. who knows.

A few times in a month. I go for a round of co-op once or twice, lucky if I catch someone (new) in.

And Portal 2... I'm sorry Descent, this is THE game I'm dating now. Both in gameplay and in Level building. (Joined a contest just recently!)

Speaking of level building, what happened to the Crowd-Source level building? I couldn't do much till now, due to schoolwork and stuff...

So that was you. ;)

Yesterday I tried some D1 coop for the first time with my brother.  I got the feeling he liked it far more than I did.

So now I have to introduce him to the Apocalyptic Factor in D2.
