    As a former Nintendo addict, I would recommend staying far away from online games and instead, use a game system that cannot go online for any reason.

    I certainly wouldn't use a pc with important data on it to play games.

    I couldn't agree more, Ron. Gamer boxes are the best place for this ever increasing problem. Playing via web sites is not a secure place to play.
