How many iWin game do you have loaded on your computer? I have 8 and I'm downloading 2 right now.
What can I say? I'm just a game junkie!

I have approximately 34 that I have purchased, and that doesn't include the free unlimited play games. Is that a lot? LOL

And I forgot, I also have 29 games purchased from store or other gaming sites, and 17 from a competitor with the same kind of membership and game manager (a competitor? uh oh), And 16 from another gaming site subscription service.
Does this make me a game addict?

Depends: if you are still eating regularly & sleeping 7 or 8 hours a night, you are fine. If you sometimes skip food in favour of several hours of 'just one more level', you have a problem!

I have a whole drive of my computer just for games (and it is WAY fuller than the area for work & real life!), so I guess I would fall into the latter category.

As for the original question, my quick answer is: too many to count or even keep track of.

Hmmm. Depends. If you have to get up during the night to go to the loo, and you have to check on your villagers or families on the computer before you head back to bed, then yeah, you're probably a tad addicted.

Speaking from personal experience here. Heh.

Maybe iWin needs a 12 step forum.

I only have 11 Iwin games on my computer as I uninstall games once I beat them as my computer can't hold too much on it I also have 4 games from 2 other sites and 12 games that I bought at the store (these are large games hence the reason I can't have too many games from other sites.) so 27 games in all at any given time.

Um, 9 purchased, rotating list of favorites - depends on my mood. So can I just transfer my games to a separate drive without re-activating them? And is your games drive internal or external?

Okay, how long have y'all been here? I just found this site less than a month ago!

So, 7 of 9 how long have you been away from the collective? Yes, I'm a Trekker all the way. Really loved her character on Voyager. Extremely sad to see that series, Next Generation and Deep Space Nine end, don't like the new "old" version, one iota. Movies are fantastic though, but Data's demise was unexpected.

I've been on iWin for 3 years but have not collected the volume of games the others have. Total iWin and competitor owned games is 18.

Wow, I guess I am overloaded! Hence my goal in getting a gaming computer, some time in July, where all my games can have a happy home and I won't have to worry about them getting cranky and yelling at me to get them out of their cage. In the meantime, I take into consideration how much they eat, and if they get fat, they get kicked to the fat farm until I decide I have enough food to feed them.

You guys made me take stock & it scared me. I have 103 games all purchased here or at 2 other game sites where I'm also a member. Yikes, 3 game site memberships & 103 purchased games.Well at least my mind won't go just everything else. But I must stress I can stop playing a game at any time, especially if I'm going to play another game.

LIke the 12 steps idea PARADOXIS Very funny..

I see it more like this.....

1. DENIAL (no, I don't spend too much time in IWIN... absolutely not!!!). No really...honestly..... Reeeeally.
2. ANGER (Where are those flipping OPALS?????...... AND why can't I ever get 'JAZZILY' on Wordscape... others do!!!!!!)
3. BARGAINING (Pleeeeeeease, Dave Gimme 1,000 OPALs and I'll tell you you're the most creative person ever ever ever.......since Leonardo da Vinci)
4. DEPRESSION (yes, I do spend 15 hrs a day on IWIN for which I get the princely reward of 19 opals!!! Yipppee. Let's celebrate and buy one and two thirds of a flamingo!!!)
5. ACCEPTANCE (oh well, what the heck..... who cares? It's fun anyway and there's lots of nice crazy people on the site to muck around with)

Download another game? Hmmmmm. OK then?
Woooops.
Crashed again.
Ho Hum... Never mind.....
I can always go to DINISMURF'S 7the Floor and have a look at her in the glossy black catsuit chasing a hamster around her room with a chainsaw........ ACCEPTANCE......

Oh I totally get that. A while back I lost my phone AND internet, and it was right before the results came out for one of the weekly iWin Hotel contests. *gasp horror*

I tell you, I travelled half an hour by car to my father's house to use HIS phone to call my mother (who lives up north so it's an STD call) so that I could ask her to go online and check for me whether I'd made the top ten or not.

My whole front desktop page is full of game icons except maybe 1-1/2 rows of computer stuff, about 92% are iwin games You do the math. Some folders I have for hidden object, all luxors together and other gamesites have a folder too so there's actually more of others than I thought. Some may have 10 or so per folder. And I wonder why my computer is so full and slow at times ?@*!!# I have had internet problems in past and games I could only play if I already downloaded so in case I couldn't get online to download I wanted to be covered and have games to play, a little insecure ??? or well prepared ???

Wow. I have no idea how many I have. Probably 400 at least. I have been playing games for years. However most of them are not from iwinn. I only recently discovered iwin. But since joining I have already acquired several from here. I have them on 2 different laptops, plus a portable hard drive which I can connect to either laptop,which can get really confusing at times. Pc games and dvd movies are my passion and hobby, when I have the time to play or watch them.

I've given up counting. I've uninstalled as many games as I've bought in order to free up memory on my computer. Like they say to do with clothes, "if I haven't played/worn it in a year, give it the big toss." So that's what I do.

iwin games = 55
miscellaneous others = 15

Assorted games for PS1, PS2, PS3 & other platforms (my games no, not my son's) = 15

I'm sorry I looked! I need that 12 step program! I work for myself so it's so easy to get sidetracked and just play a game or two or three...I too have my game shortcuts in a folder on my laptop, mostly so they don't distract me while I work!

I only have 1 game loaded, but I have 5 downloading right now. And all of them are no time games and none of them are purchased.

Well according to what paradoxis wrote about checking in on the villagers when you get up to use the loo,
I guess I fall into the "addict" catagory

I have 43 purchased games & 26 trial or unlimited play games from iWin. I'm not going to take the time to count all the games I have from other places but I would guess it's more than 60 ...
As ponycarmom said it doesn't really matter because I spend most of my time here (in pursuit of opals)

Also I'd like to let all those other addicts out there that there is a 12 step program here at iWin booksdar runs it on her 15th floor
http://www.iwn.com/hotel/?room=booksdar/15... she even has beds for those that need more intensive care...
PS........................................................................................................................................................................................................or a place to play without being judged

I have too many to count, on & off this site. lol I've been collecting & playing since 2004. Trying hard to regain a memory loss, playing computer games, esp. word, number & hidden obeject games really help with the hand / eye co-ordinate. So it's been really beneficial to me. Many DRS & Physical Theraphysts recommend this to their patients.

I HAVE ABOUT 5 RIGHT NOW. I ALSO ERASE THEM WHEN I FINISH THEM, UNLES I LIKE THEM A LOT. I PLAY THE FREE ON LINE ONES. JUST FINISH 1001 SINBAD ADVENTURS LOVE IT. I HAVE BEEN ON THE SAME GAME FOR ALMOST A YR IF NOT AYR ALREADY. EVERY TIME MY HUBBY BACK UP THE COMP I HAVE TO START ALL OVER LOL. I LOVE THIS SITE. I HAVE NEVER GOT ANY VIRUS AND THE GAMES ARE PRETTY GOOD.

Please don't shout...On the internet, all caps means you are yelling and I'm sure you don't mean to yell at your iWin friends. Please read the Topics & Guidelines at this link for more information on posting to the Game Chat Forum. Thank you.
