Yeah, Battlefield 2 is great. Sadly I recently found out that I won't be able to play it anymore. =( The CD broke and now I can't install it. FUCK.

Deer Hunter 2005 is another great game though =D Seriously, it is.

Oblivion was awesome for a while too, but now that I lost all my saved games, I doubt I'll start playing it again. FUCK.

You suck then. I have another problem though: I won't get more than 90.60 points. No matter how many bucks I bag, I'm still stuck at 90.60. Fuck.

edit: Roller Coaster was really fun too, actually. I might try to reinstall that one... hm.

SAM AND MAX. I believe there's a free trial of it online. Just a small part. But even if there isn't you must pay and download it. Thank god, finally I can play a good game. Max scares me a lot, though. Anyway, just download it.

mota boy, it's sweet. Part one is done. Now I'm playing part 2. It has been developed in Czech republic.

I recommend Half-life 2: episode one.

in all honesty, i think liquid war (http://www.ufoot.org/liquidwar/v5) is one of the greatest games of all time.

also, wesnoth (http://www.wesnoth.org/) and nethack (http://www.nethack.org/) are very good games.

Max scares me a lot, though. Anyway, just download it.Have you bought it? The second episode is supposed to come out today and I'm vaguely annoyed that they're taking so long to get it out.

And HAU - only the first part of Episode 2 is freely available though. I finally broke down and actually purchased it last night, though.

Oh, and you can also right click and zoom in on the game to get a better view of some of the great artwork.

The second episode is coming out today? This is just lovely. I haven't even bought the first one. I'm having problems with internet and I'm too scared of having a connectipn problem while downloading it. Noo, I'm just playing that trial again and again and it's pathetic.

Gulsahib, while I was downloading episode two my connection got interrupted twice and I restarted it without a problem. If you ultimately decide to purchase the game, be sure to go ahead and get the whole first season (six games) for 34.95. Though if you do only purchase the first episode, you can upgrade later.

Edit - Oh, and I'm pretty sure you download a very small download manager first that will then get the actual game for you very easily. And if you have any problems, the staff is helpful and very quick to answer any questions you might have.

The answer is World of Warcraft. Forever and ever. Amen.

If you do, play OpenTTD, it's an improved version. It's the most fun when you created something very complex, but still earns you a huge profit.
The game's originally from '94.

I'll try it out. I like all the Tycoon games. Besides Mall Tycoon, because assholes keep stealing things from my stores!

I know I'm probably gonna come off as a douchebag/idiot/whatever else for recommending this, but Starcraft is good if you like RTS games.

Fixed.

Also, correct. I got Starcraft for ten bucks a few years ago when I had way too much free time. I wish I could find the disc now...
