Windows Pinball. Don;t play any other games anyomore...

Used to love Fallout (esp 2) and GTA Vice city (though I HATE cars, music in that game was soo great that it was worth playing).

SNES games on the other hand :bounce::bounce:

EDIT- actually this thread makes me think that maybe I should play some games again...Tomorrow will ask my bro who is a huge gamer does he has anything interesting...By now, Im launching Pinball..

Crusader Kings II - The game is a dynasty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynasty) simulator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simulator) where the player controls a Medieval dynasty from 1066 to 1453. Through the strategic use of war, marriages and assassinations amongst many other things, the player works to achieve success for his or her dynasty. The simulation is open-ended so the definition of 'success' is completely defined by the player. [3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusader_Kings_II#cite_note-3). The only in-game objective is to obtain as much prestige points to your dynasty as to surpass the various historically relevant Christian dynasties in a fictional prestige ranking (the three most prestigious ones being the Capetian dynasty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Capet), the Rurikovich (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rurikids) and the von Habsburg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Habsburg)). Game over happens when the player dies and doesn't have an heir from his dynasty to succeed him. The game employs a genetics and education system where children will inherit most traits, culture, religion and skills from their parents and guardian. This adds an additional strategy to marriages where a player will attempt to breed the best individuals to maximise the quality of future offspring.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusader_Kings_II#cite_note-4)
While a player can choose almost any landed noble to play, there are some which are unplayable without the use of mods, notably: Republics (such as Venice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Venice)), Theocracies (most notably The Papacy) and landed Holy Orders/Mercenaries (for example, the Templars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Templars) or the Catalan Company (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan_Company)). Pagans are unplayable at the start of the game but you can convert to a Pagan religion and play freely. Muslims aren't playable without the Sword of Islam DLC. It was possible for the player to convert to Islam prior to the 1.06 patch though they had no special features.

Another one, for me, is Victoria II - Victoria II spans the globe from 1836 to the start of 1936 with over 200 playable nations.[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_II#cite_note-announcement-6) Like its predecessor, Victoria II focuses on internal management, covering the industrialization (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrialization) and social/political changes in a country with dozens of different government types. The game gives a lot of importance to the economy of a country by having a complex market system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Market_system) with over 50 types of goods and factories (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Factories).[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_II#cite_note-announcement-6) While warfare is a component of the game it is not the primary focus as in other Paradox Interactive games such as the Hearts of Iron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hearts_of_Iron) series.[7] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria_II#cite_note-7)

Um I don't support piracy so I don't know. :p But you can get it on Steam for USD 19. That's pretty cheap.

And for the Historical Grand Strategy genre, it is the absolute best.

Splinter Cell series (before they turned it into the dogshit that it is now)
I agree, the last one had almost nothing to do with the originals, Splinter Cell was all about stealth and tactics, this one just has waves upon waves of people coming straight at you, some stuff is okay and graphics are alright, but gameplay can't compete at all.

I saw the gameplay demo, which looked a bit more stealthy than Conviction. The problem is that the market these days is more open to gung ho shooters like COD.

Older CODs were much better than this new crap, which is way over the top, back then you could actually enjoy the single player campaigns. Loved the first one, where they basically took inspiration from movie depictions of real life events.

Theme Hospital! :hearts: ..and Diablo.

Yessss to both.

Theme Hospital is such a classic. The inflation room :crying2:

Also a bit of a sucker for the Sims games. I could spend hours and hours on them. Ridiculously addictive. :tape:

But seriously, aren't there some similar free (legal) strategy games of a decent quality?

Sim City, Age of Mythology and Warcraft 3 were great childhood memories! :worship: The Age of Empires and The Sims series were also so amazing. :bigclap:

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

Such a great vampire RPG. Sadly it had million problems and bugs. Didnt help that developer Troika went bankrupt soon after release, so basically fans had to fix many things later on.
Its getting old now, so should run on your toaster too. :oh:

You should play HOI3. It's meant to be a lot better although I've never played any of the HOI games because I don't like that historical period.
