Have you given up playing completely, or just the online and computer games?
I have quit online games for a lack of opponents (if someone is in the mood for a game of chess, pachisi, scrabble or backgammon, please feel free to contact me =) )
But I still play Senet (an ancient Egyptian board game, part chance / part tactics, similar to a mix of Pachisi and Backgammon) against my computer during particularly long downloads or virus scans
I've played video, computer, and board games all my life--from the original Nintendo ES Super Mario Brothers to Scrabble to PC games like Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune to Millionaire to MMOs and The Sims 1, 2, and 3. But I've outgrown most of them. I still play Angry Birds occasionally. I have a PS3 that I use mostly for watching movies and playing Super Streetfighter 4.
