Going to say the Civ series although they're two different kinds of fun.  Civ 2 is still one of the best games ever in my opinion.  Sadly, it's a little dated now.  I'm looking forward to the sequels of both games. -leeman

Age of Empires, specifically the expansion, is a pretty darn awesome game.
I know that it looks pretty bad today, but I still play matched against friends.

Not much use in playing single player, but the multiplayer is awesome.

Age of Empires is fun but it gets old fast, it just boils down to creating loads of villagers to harvest resources and reaching the top of the tech tree before your opponent. Its way to unreal for game thats supposed to be about real history. You can build a trail of heavily defended castles all the way up to the enemies territory for Gods sake.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well I have resolved to just get the Civ 4 game over AOE3.  Sooo, back to topic people, inquiring minds want to know what games are you playing while waiting for Spore to come out in 2k6. 

PS-I just know I'll be wishing for Civ 5 to come out after I play a couple of rounds of Civ4.  Remember I warned you.

I think I'll be getting Civ 4 and The Elder Scrolls 4 to tide me over till' at least E3. I am also buying a new guitar and am planning on practicing at least 2 hours a day so that should help kill some time.

especially since the major drawbacks of morrowind were the crappy combat and stealth, and those are the two things theyve totally overhauled!

Now it'll be full of people who are hungry but since you stole all their money while they were out, they shoplift and get caught by the guards!

I think that's a bit too intelligent. Were still talking about something that will run on a computer that doesnt need to be kept close to absolute zero to stop it overheating or trying to take over the world.

I hope you can actually use a dagger in the way its intended to be used, stabbing people in the back- killing them in one hit. A knife is not supposed to be slashed and slashed at some guy in armour untill it breaks. That ruined the assasins guild quests in Morrowind.

Might as well play SimCity for a while. I don't know why I cheat on games, it makes it no fun...

I agree with you on that one B-Rod.  How much fun can it be if you're invincible and can pretty much destroy anyone while no one can harm you back?  You lose the strategy/tactical ops on any game, which is usually what makes the game fun in the first place.  It's like playing chess knowing ahead of time what moves you need to make in order to win.  Any time you can put your brain on idle, you are either watching television or cheating on a game.  ;)
