Sample Answer:
For a long time I do not play computer games as I got busy with other tasks and can hardly manage time nowadays but I was a hardcore fan of the game Age of Empires 2. This was a strategy game developed by Ensemble Studios and published by Microsoft Studios.  There were three series of this game and I played the second series called Age of Empire the Conqueror. This was a historic strategy games that the gamers could have played either in single player or in multiplayer mode.

I mostly played it when I was 16-18 years old. I usually played it against computer competitors and sometimes against my friends over the computer network.
There were several civilizations that a player had to pick from and then develop this civilization in every aspect to protect it from the attack of other civilizations. Each civilization had its own strength and weakness and the player had to control the game for a long time. The different soldiers, defense mechanism, war strategy, war defense and research and different technologies made it a really interesting game.

I often played it against computer when I picked a civilization and computer had other 3 civilizations. We fought each other and often I won the games against computer in Hard game mode. I often played against my friends and that was a different experience as I had to compete against real human. That was more competitive and I enjoyed thoroughly playing against my friends.
