I always enjoyed playing mtg much more than I enjoyed playing video games. I can say it's the only type of fantasy, role playing game, etc I've ever liked (unless you count age of empires). When you're that age, it was fun trading up and building decks. Honestly, I also made a few friends that I still talk to today. As a joke a few months back, I mailed a piece of linen paper with singed edges, sealed with a drop of candle wax to a friend I hadn't spoken to in almost 10 years. All that was printed on the paper was a quote from juzam djinn "expect my visit when the darkness comes". Apparently he knew who it was right away, we had a good laugh.
