Finally, I'm posting again! Sorry about the long hiatus. That's why I try to post everyday... if I give myself one free day, it quickly turns into two, then three, then a week, and so on.
I've always played games as is -- no mods, no minor tweaks, no tools running in the background. You know... gaming as God intended. ;)
Yet the use of those extra tools, alternate UI, and such seems pretty common.
So now I'm wondering just how common. Am I the exception? Do most PC gamers use such things these days? Or is it still mainly the tech-savvy gamers and online gaming veterans who seek to augment their gameplay?
