What games do you play AT WORK?

alteredparadigm1alteredparadigm1 Santa Cruz, CAPosts: 10Member

So I know we all get bored at work every so often and for those of us lucky enough to be in front of a computer with an internet connection we have some options.

 

So what games do you guys play when you're supposed to be working?

    Psst...once upon a time I coded a game while at work (for somebody else).  Shhhh.

    But no, long since ceased such shenanigans. Bad economy for a job hunt.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    used to play tetris and such long ago, more when got free time.
    sometime played runescape as it browser game (crafted semi afk by in-out runs LOL)

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    I don't play games at work, and it's not just because I couldn't even if I wanted. They have our computers and network pretty well locked down.

    However, the last time I played a video game at work it was Menzoberranzan.

    EDIT: Spelling

    Top Games Played in 2015: World of Tanks, Tera, World of Warships

    You people actually have time to play at work? O.o I couldn't even fathom gaming at work, even minesweeper, I might be able to check the news during lunchtime, but that's about it...

    I guess it really depends on your job.  Some of us probably do a little more mindelss things that others :P

     

    I'm guessing your job envolves customers?  Mine is basically project based so I work in "me time" into project completion estimates :)

    Why are you even playing games at work? Reason its called work...

    I can see people saying they do it during break or w/e but that isnt work that be called a break. 

    A man who fears nothing is a man who loves nothing; and if you love nothing, what joy is there in your life?

    Life is too short to give your job 100%.

     

    On the other hand if you love what you do , you got a point.

    My job involves calculating payrolls (and everything remotely related to HR) and the company's IT stuff. Lately I've been playing the "Prioritize To-Do List" game. =P Yeah, I wish I could slow down at times, no chance of that at current job though.

    Ha!  Nice.

    One of my first jobs was a temp for about a year at a company that was in the process of being bought out by GE.  After I got comfortable with my duties I was able to complete most of what I had to do in the first couple of hours.  So I just ended up playing the earlier final fantasies on an emulator for the rest of the day for about ten months.  Kind of miss that job.  Actually towards the end my super just told me I could leave if I wanted to after a half day and he would just sign my time cards as if I was there for forty/week.

    @OP regarding giving job 100% - in the current economic situation, if I don't give my job 100%, the company can without any difficulties find a dozen others who will. With virtually no vacant jobs around and a mortgage to pay off, giving less than 100% isn't an option. :(

    forum PVP.. only game at work I can play in quick spurts

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Last place I used to work  I know of at least 15 folks who were fired for playing games, and don't think that compaines dont check that stuff.  It is easy to track folks using bandwith. I seen people play wow, and eq2 at work.  mostly folks were playing  minsweeper and solitare.  I seen folks fired for even surfing forums at work. 

    When we rolled out new desktops to folks desk we put in an exe that looked like minesweeper and solitare and if somebody used the exe it would lock their desktop out, and notify internet security.  

    We all had to sign an internet complaint document, there were no second warnings. We were in fact at work given bonus pay if we spotted somebody doing something like that and turned them in. 

    In this day and time playing at work for most companies like the largest inusurance company in the us, they take a dim view of folks playing on their pc's and not working.  

    Where I work at now we have to sign an internet complaince document.  Things are so strict we can't even use iheart readio apps. Like I said they keep a tight leash on bandwith.

    You'd probably like this game then as it has Battle Allocation meaning you have a limited amount of fights / hour.  So you end up fighting in quick spurts like you say.

     

    Then you can get back to work (or back to the forums)

    Games some people at my work play all day long:

    1. Lie and cheat to get promoted

    2. Blame others for own failures

    3. Pretent to work while surfing 7 hours a day (1 hour is lunch break)

    4. Write emails to other who ask you to do something explaning how you are not responsible even though you are.

     

    I wish my company would allow computer games to be played, at least those make me happy.

    No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.
