    Anyone play them? What's your favorite?

    Personally, I'd have to say morrowind/oblivion are my favorite role playing games.

    Fav of all time would have to be star craft and quake world team fortress

    Sim City (2000 baby!), the Halo series, the Age of Empires series.

    Does internet chess count?

    Do calculator games count? :smile:

    internet chess is great. that kept me up many nights freshman year.

    Sure, calculator games counts. I remember Drug wars, great distraction during high school.

    Can't wait for halo 2 for pc

    Tombraider fan here. Then next would be racing games, from the arcadish Need For Speed series to the sim like Payprus games, Grand Prix Legends and Nascar Racing Season 2003 (plus a lot of mods), the sim like ISI games, EA F1 Challenge 99-02, GTR, GTR2, GTLegends, and Rfactor, plus Live For Speed. The Myst series would be next, and lastly, the first person shooter games (I set invulnerability mode on), like Far Cry, Doom, Quake, Half Life, Unreal Tournament.

    I've built up quite a collection of racing game videos over the years:

    Wanted: A football (soccer) manager game simply called "the manager", where you are in charge of team in the English league. It's an old game, I first played it on Amiga 500, but I know it exists for pc too.
    I've deperately tried to find it, but failed. Anyone know of it?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Championship_Manager" [Broken]. It's very realistic and detailed.

    I play a freeware version of Go, called Dariush. I would play others online, but I can't even beat the computer.

    I remember Morrowind, it was a fun game. I don't think I ever beat it, though.
