Thanks MegaZ, you've created an invaluable resource for the CAG community.

I'm wondering if you have any entries in your library for younger kids, say 5-10 years, and maybe any educational ones ?

Thanks again for the list. Now where to start....


Ty. I hear you. Time is the choke point factor.

Happily holidays Mega. Thanks for the "mega" bad ass thread.


Ty. Enjoy.

Yeah, thanks for this list. So many games, so little time....


Ty. I know, man! I know...

Thanks MegaZ, you've created an invaluable resource for the CAG community.

Ty. Actually, I have a very extended list for children as I have 2 young ones myself.

For reading we go to www.starfall.com

For fun - My kids love to play www.CartoonNetwork.com games especially Fusion Fall.

If you could tell me what type of educational aspect you wish to target, I could provide a better link. My DB for child sites and games is over 2000+ strong.

Any of you guys playing Quake Live? PM me!


I am Megazell in all things online.

My gaming times

Wednesday - 10:30 PM EST to 12:30 AM EST
Sunday - 10:30 PM EST to 12:30 AM EST

Due, to holidays - I will be mostly off line with some LAN gaming thrown in as family from all over are here and nothing beats face to face competitions. Once holidays are over (Jan 3rd or so) I will be back on that gaming schedule.

At this time I have over 176+ brand new games to post (outside of those on my list I feel I should post) and I will be posting those when holiday time is over. Most of them will not be tested as I will be pretty much solo with them since my volunteer time is also reduced in the winter and during my own kids' test season.

As for Quake Live - I have a steady 5 people I play with on a regular basis that consist of family and friends. You are more then welcome to join us. I suggest you use XFIRE to stay in contact with fellow CAG players. It's free and will save you a lot of time. So far everyone I have played with from this site has been awesome.

Be smooth, people!

Posting Update

I updated the first post of this thread to include a consise method by which I will be posting.

I have received a lot of great recommendations from members of this forum and others on Free and Legal PC Games.

However, a great many of them I won't be posting for the reason stated on page 1 of this thread.

Don't take it personally. I just want to make sure that when people click a link to enjoy a game...it's as pain free as possible.

Please, do continue to make suggestion though as this thread lives off of user input :)

Thanks,

Ugh... BattleForge...

I played this game a week or two after it was announced that the main game will be a free 2 play thing. 'Cool', I thought, 'a M:TG type game wrapped in a RTS'. Unfortunately, this game didn't really have that staying power that Magic Online had on my when I had this thing called a "disposable income".

EA releasing this game a free download is cool and all, and yes, the first few levels I played was a blast, but the free version is so incredibly gimped on the onset that the free-ness quickly lost appeal to me. When start considering paying for the the paid key and various booster card, just to supplement my starting army at the 2nd day, virtue of that fact that the demo cards as so underpowered... I know the marketing foo that EA was tossing around, and this cheap Filipino isn't buying it.

I never played Magic: The Gathering online. How is it exactly? I know you have to pay for your boosters and such but is it just a lobby and you pick a fight? Any $ prize support?

I use to play that often in table top format...when the expansion came out too often - I left it.

Outside of videos games I am an avid table top gaming. My kids and I often spend time painting and remodeling figures (Heroclix) and making city reconstructions. That game is no longer supported but NYC has a lot of places where tournaments flourish. I also play Zombies!!! (more of board game - But it also has tourny support), Risk, DnD Mini and Chess (12 Tier tournaments).

Hey Megazell, just built my younger brother (age 9) a half decent computer and he could use some good games. Anything on this list that you think would be good for a kid his age? He's not a big competitive guy so multiplayer only probably isn't great.

I have this thing for Tabletop gaming, especially for a lot of the "lesser-known" and off-the-wall stuff nowadays (usually cheaper).

Magic Online was indeed fun, and yes, it does cost a pretty penny to "compete" in that game. Funny that you mentioned prize packages, since it was in an online tourney were I decided to leave the game for good, around the Mirrodin cycle. Anyways, yes, there is some awesome prizes for weekly tourneys, but if I remember correctly, they're usually avatars, booster sets, or "tickets", which is the cash-equivalent currency in-game (1 ticket =$1, i think).

As for gaming night to night, you had seperate game rooms/lobbies, which support different card rules (T2 format, Extended, Casual, Highlander, etc), along with the weekly Draft and Constructed tourneys. For that time I played it, the game had a fairly robust trade system, where a young idiotic person like my previous self could easily sink half a teenager's paycheck on virtual cardboard cards. It's a great game to play once in a while, but just like the real world version, it is a money sink.

Nowadays, I tend to pick of games of Fluxx and Apples to Apples. I don't think either could lend themselves to tourney support that easily, but it's fun to play with a bunch of college buddies, or with the future in-laws.

Cool, thanks for the info.

I grew up on DnD, Magic and games of that nature (anyone remember Torg?). My friends and family were STRONG into Magic even after I left it. In the end, around college time for me, we settled on board games like 'Hero's Quest!', Heroclix (we only bought what we liked and never allowed dupes), Yahtzee, Poker, Chess and Zombies!!! Many of them have trunks and trunks of cards from Magic.

I was of the mind that if the habit did not pay for itself, I could not have it. So I left right after the prices of cards were dropping fast and the expansions and banned list were getting crazy (Weatherlight, I think). Lots of great memories and fun times though.

In fact, years later when I was in college, I landed my first high paying IT job over Magic. During the interview, I noticed a black and red deck still in the package on my interviewers desk (later my boss). So during the conversation, I asked him if he played. Turned out he didn't but that his son did and he bought those for him. He then went on to criticize the game and wanted his son to get into sports and stuff...you know manly stuff. So, I then asked him if he knew how to play and did he know the origins of the game...I then tied it to military strategies, art of war and tactics. He opened the pack and ask me to show him. We played a round...after awhile he was like "Damn, this is pretty good...I never knew it was about military...always thought it was like an expensive form of I-declare-war with art." Anyway, I landed the job and it was one of my longest running jobs. I think him and his son got closer because when I would tell them about tournies and stuff his son would show up at the job and I saw them from time to time at different gaming spots. Not sure if he ever won though.

That's hard to do without knowing your taste and system specs. With that said, no matter how old your machine is, unlike consoles, you can make it awesome with a little mental elbow grease ;)

1) Nexuiz - Great Old School FPS gameplay with modern graphics.
2) SNK vs Capcom - Great fighting game. Great character selection.
3) Project Powder - Great snowboarding game.
4) Rise and Fall: Civilizations At War - Great RTS.
5) Hurrican - Old school side scroller shooter with modern graphics.
6) Facewound - Same as above with Zombies! and in 3D.
7) I'm OK - FUNNY Side Scroller Shooter!
8) Alliance Of Valiant Arms - Great military squad online FPS.
9) Shotgun Debugger - Top Down Action.
10) Mightier - Unique gameplay with lots of fun.

The list I post was solid then but I would take my time and go through the list. Also if you subscribe to the post and select instant email notification you will receive emails of each post and you can then look at the games as I post.

Racing - Upshift Striker Racer, Drift City and Trackmania are a must.

RTS - I would add Glest. RPGs...well I have decided not to play anymore RPGs as of late as they take up too much time but each one that I did post came from great sources (friends and family that like them) and they are usually not off.

Glad you enjoyed. The Suffering is one of the games I can not install at the center. Not because of the hardware issue but because of the content. I did not finish the game at all but it is much liked.

I don't mind that old feeling. In fact, I embrace it. I play old school games with my kids all the time - Double Dragon, X-Men (Arcade Verizon), TMNT (Arcade Verizon), Contra and other old school games. It's nice to have them share an experience that you had when you were their age. Plus, it always cool to hear them share their stories with other kids.

Ha! Contra! That's 8 bit era. If that's old school, then the original Bruce Lee game is Prehistoric.
