Favourite PC Game

Wed Dec 07, 2005 9:28 am

There is a thread going at the moment about your favourite PS2 game, so I thought I'd atart one about about PC games. So what are they, mine are The Sims 2 and FS 2004.

I feel you, same here.

But for the times I can play some games.
FS2004 is ofcourse my favourite
and than Sim City 4000 is great. Sim City 3000 is great too. But my favourite might be Sim City 2000 just an amazing game for its time.

Fs2004 (& Fs98 before), Links 2001.

Also I liked Star Wars Rogue Squadron. And all the emulator programs out there (Mame, Nes etc.) - this week have been looking at the N64 and the famous game Goldeneye which i kinda like too.

Guess I'm the only racing game fan to post thus far... my 2 favorites- GTR (FIA GT game) and GPL ('67 grand prix cars).
I'll also play forgotten hope, a mod for battlefield 1942 (WWII FPS), and back in the day I enjoyed counterstrike... I'd say that I play PC games maybe once every couple weeks for an hour at a time or so, beyond that and it gets pretty boring. I had a roommate last year (randomly assigned) who was an absolute nightmare, he was literally addicted to world of warcraft. He would sleep for maybe 6 hours during the day, and be up all night whispering into this headset about trading gold for clam meat and fighting ogres and such with his online buddies. I could never sleep with the damn glow and noise from his comp, and when I'd yell at him he'd stop for an hour and go right back to it when I fell asleep. He skipped every class that semester, and ended up withdrawing 2 weeks before the end. The lesson to be learned here? Don't become addicted to that game!

Would a PC game made for Win 85/98/200 work in Win XP? I have (at least I think I still have it) a game called Virtual Pool 3 and I loved that game when I had Win 98.

I'm a big of Civilization III (and the previous ones too). Haven't played Civ IV yet though Sad. My only complaint is that Civilization is too addictive!

I also LOVED playing Railroad Tycoon 2 and Rollercoaster Tycoon. Those games were addicting. They were made for Windows 98 and when I switched to Windows XP I never tried to install them in XP to see if they worked in XP.

I am still trying to beat level 8-4: Khufus Revenge on Luxor. I play that game so much, it should just let me win that level LOL I also have a Windows game called Hover that I play when Luxor gets too stressful.

Football Manager (former Championship manager). No graphics, but it has an incredible data base of players, coaches, stadiums etc. and I am sooo hooked on the game. I play with the team of the city where I was born (Brescia), and I am now in the year 2029 and have won the Champions league 7 times Big grin
