Have you checked the Shrapnel roster lately. Some very interesting games are getting attention. Space, historical war games, and some just plain weird ones. But (no offense intended) they all tend to fall into the "not really latest greatest graphics and sound". If an independent game that puts effort into areas other than eye and ear candy then we should all do them the favor of at least checking out the demos for hosting this wonderful forum.

Thats a link to the mod and a small patch. Adds a bunch of new canon and non-canon ships and adds the Dominion as a side so its Romulans/Federation/Klingon/Dominion/Borg lots of good times to be had.

a number of the nice eye candy and great graphic games are a lot less fun and playable as a number of those that don't have all the bells and whistles. I would also recommend looking at some of the less eye candy and great graphic ones and look at some of those that have less but are more fun, enjoyable and better AIs... IMHO

I forgot to mention Air Command 3! The best games I've ever played were not the greatest graphic games around, BUT they did hold my interest for hours of enjoyable playing time. Not to mention very good AI programming.

I'm and old Avalon Hill Board Game player and really enjoyed some of their computer games (Flight Commander, Dreadnaught, Underfire) as well. I've also played SFB for years as you guys seem to be avid fans of Starfleet Command. I was given an evaluation copy of it by Steve Cole when we were negotiating Pinwheel Galaxy addition to SFB. I like the board game better. Maybe because the group I played with had a great social aspect.

I watch my niece play Wii and some of the games are just plain stupid, while the actual graphics are terrible. I think the gaming industry need to re-evaluate where it's going to go.(IMHO)

Every morning, or afternoon, I jump on and play Kingdom of Loathing http://www.kingdomofloathing.com/sta...p?id=whatiskol you only get a set number of turns a day, so it doesn't become an obsession. I used to play Diablo II, and I was looking forward to Diablo III, but I don't think I'm going to let myself get sucked into that. I may try Linux, again, and I'll work on getting SE4 to run under Wine. Outside of that, I tend to hit up Jayisgames http://jayisgames.com/ to see what short Flash game I can amuse myself with for a short time.

Default Re: What other games do you people play?

Right now the primary game I am playing is Cyber Nations. That browser game that Combat Wombat got some of us into two years ago.

PC games:
Fear
Simcity 4 Rush Hour
(just finished) KOTOR - boring *** game.
Kicking around crisis and DeuxEx 2 IW, as well as BioSchock.

I am finding it hard to get into bioshock though. Fear is ok but its just a shooter, no real addiction their. Crisis is so disappointing that it turned it me off to FarCry 2.

I crave a good earth conquest game based on SE IV. Not Civ IV or any of the Empire Earth games, but one that has the depth and interest and inspiration of SE IV but land based instead of space based.

I too am going through the game archives looking for games to play. I am wondering if Decent Freespace will work on my C2 XP machine or not.
