    we have three video games approved by the gov't: ping-pong, lemmings and chess. most people have them in black and white and only a few rich businessmen have them in colour. we've heard of a cool game called tetris (it was actually invented by a russian dissident), but it's been banned in russia.

    I guess home PC is more common for gaming purposes...from console games this is PSX and PSX2 as far as I know.

    We have all the game consoles known to man, from GBA to XBox, but we think that console games suck. We prefer intellectual PC games like minesweep and solitaire. My sister's kid, a fine upstanding lad of 14 (already at uni studying rocket science), likes mahjong.

    Short answer: absolutely same, as the rest of the world.
    And they are much cheaper, because almost 100% pirated (70R for single CD/100R for single DVD, regardless of content).

    And at PC you can print homeworks (and get it from Internet), watch pirated Videos in Mpeg-4, play such games like Ultima or World of Warcraft online and of course you can make you own Local Area Network and play Quake3 and Counter-Strike with your neighborhoods for free

    Yep. No intelligent life forms whatsoever.
