if type has anything to do with games, then it wouldn't be the difference between video and computer. it would be the differences of the types of games. fps, rpg, mmorpg, strategy, etc....
if it helps any, i love playing the game World of Warcraft (mmo) but I'm really big on the fantasy escape thing. My need for the escape is getting less and less, but i still enjoy it.
i also like playing fps, but i lose interest really fast unless im playing with another person.
which also brings me to the point of why i like WoW, because its a community as well as a fantasy game world. you can talk to real people. ive met some really cool people on that game, and got to be pretty close friends with one to the point where i can type them
its fun when you get online and your friends are on after work, and you're like, "OKAY LETS GO DO THIS INSTANCE AND FIGHT THE DRAGONS WOOOHOO!" teamspeak and ventrillo are ideal! hard to find a guild where everyone has it though...
i havn't played in a week
oh, and i like adventure games too every once in a while, until i get stuck and i get too bored trying to do the part over and over. like mario type games.
