Anyone Play Any PC Games? (excluding FS)

Sun Feb 05, 2006 8:49 am

This is probably aimed more at the younger members, but does anyone play any PC games, and are they good?

Does anyone have Rome: Total War?
Everyone at my college either doesn't have it, or hhas it and can't do it!!
The reason they can't do it is because its hard, and thats why I would like to speak with someone who has played it, and more to the point, has been successful in playing it?

I know this kind of thing should really be on a gaming website forum, but this is a lot easier than joining one, just to talk about one game...

Thanks

Besides FS2004 I play Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004 golf, and The Sims on my computer. I also had this game called Virtual Pool 3 which was a very good billiards game. It was made for Win98 and I can't find it now so I don't know if it works for WinXP.

All other games I play on the console.

I haven't really played computers games much lately, at least online. I don't even have many installed.

What I still have installed are

Sim City 4
Delta Force: Blackhawk Down
Janes Fleet Command
Pirates!
Navy Field
Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault

I also have Call of Duty/COD2, all of the Medal of Honor games, Enigma Rising Tide, Ghost Recon, Iron Storm, H&D 2, etc. I used to play World War II Online but alas, I was banned for telling off one of the people who runs the game. (It was worth it though and I had already planned to cancel my subscription since the direction the game was going was ruining the enjoyment.)

Right now though I just don't have enough free time to play computer games. Every moment of my life seems to be either working, reading books or writing papers.

Cool. Its amazing to see the range of games in different countries.
I know what you mean about GTA. I think I'd have to go on rehab if I played that game again.
So no one has played total war before then? Shame, for 'tis quite good.

Also still have Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Invisible War on my PC, though I haven't played those in a while (still brilliant games). Also I'm currently looking to get Mafia! back, after deleting it from my comp.

The best strategy game available (in multiplayer mode):

Total Annihilation


No 3D, no BS, just full strategy. I'm playing for years with some friends through the Internet.

Haven't played a PC game since "Far Cry" (and still haven't finished it). Used to be a huge gamer but unfortunately I have not had a lot of time. I've been looking forward to picking up Civ4 after they get all the bugs fixed. Other than that I have stayed away from persistant online worlds (like Everquest) because when I was a teenager Dragonrealms (text based MUD) almost ruined my life I played it so much!

I can recommend some classic games that you will probably be able to download/buy for cheap (I grew up on these games).

TIE Fighter, X-Wing
Civilization, Civ2, and Civ3
Any of the Sierra Adventure games: Space Quest, Quest for Glory, Police Quest, LSL, King's Quest, etc...
Sim City
Wolf 3D/Doom II
Star Trek: 25th Anniversary Edition (great game...)

I guess I'm the only person here in to racing games, as I have GTR and Grand Prix Legends installed on my computer and I play them fairly regularly, as well as F1 Challenge but that one is mainly for the mods like Prototype C and Sports Car Challenge. I also play Battlefield 1942, but only the forgotten hope and desert combat mods. I also occasionally play C&C Generals.

Rome Total War is an excellent game, I just have nobody I can play online with multiplayer setting. Otherwise, I tend to do pretty well agains the computer, but a human opponent would be more fun.
