I have been playing IF since I was 9. My first exposure was an old copy of Zork on my friend's dad's computer. Then I experienced Adventure and the first two Unnkulian games on a shareware compilation CD. The arrival of the internet in my home brought the opportunity to seek out more of these enjoyable "text adventures." I played a handful of standalone titles in this way, including Curses, which remains my favorite to this day. Then I discovered the motherlode at ftp.gmd.de/if-archive.
I can scarcely guess at the staggeringly high number of hours I have spent playing IF, but I don't regret it. I know it's not for everyone, but I still feel bad for those who've never played it or who squint at me confusedly when I try to explain the concept before turning back to their FPS or MMORPG. (Not that I don't enjoy a good FPS or MMORPG as much as the next man.)
I am pretty bad at puzzles, and I have a special antipathy toward mazes. Perhaps it's unusual that my favorite game contains both. I'm also not a big fan of situations where food or light sources impose time limits, although I have deeply enjoyed many games which feature this. Apart from these elements, I like all sorts of games.
