I've been gaming since I was young. My parents had the 3M Bookshelf series and believed that board games made for good family time--and I think they're right. My brothers and I soon began to play more and more games, enjoying everything from Stop Thief! to Shadowlord! (got to love !s in titles
College took me away from board-gaming and I became more interested in computer games for a bit (Warcraft II, looking at you), but after I got married I realized how much nicer it was to sit with my wife (and later family) and play games together, in person.
Now we own 100s of games and play most days, even if it's just something quick. We average about 3-4 games a day (well over 1000 in a year).
I think it's safe to say that I play about 90% of all games with my family, but have enjoyed some great games at our local store when we have time--and have thoroughly enjoyed the Dice Tower Cons. (My wife and I run the Family Gaming and Children's Area there and always enjoy it.)
We enjoy a wide range of games. Each member of our family gets a chance to choose what we play, keeping our play diverse and eclectic. We do tend toward games that our children can enjoy and that play in not too much more than 1 hour, but every once in a while my boys will want to play epic Heroscape or Conquest of Nerath.
