Hmm, might I add some suggestion on the MMO front? Personally played these games in one capacity or another, giving it a solid week before shelving it/realizing that I actually have a real life, complete with a lover, job, school, and friends...

Dragonica - Fun little 2.5d MMO, a cutesy and highly kid-friendly Dungeon Fighter, with better graphics imho. I played in the closed beta of the game, and had a ton of fun. Very kid friendly on how it handles mob-deaths and violence, not to mention the controls and "combo system" are simplistic, almost to a fault. The US version is currently owned/run by THQ, so there is a major US base for the game, without relying on some shady Korean-owned enterprise, not that I have anything wrong with that.

Cabal Online
- With the US version recently receiving the "Reloaded" version of the game, this might be worth a revisit (probably after I played Dragon Age to death, or I graduate from Grad School, whichever comes first). When I played this many moons ago, I was fairly impressed by the combat system which integrated a really intricate combo system. Unfortunately, I never had the patience to master such a system and everything else in this game screamed "Generic Korean MMO". Don't get me wrong, the game knows how to abuse particle effects and flashy "Omg I pulled a multi-hit, explosion and sword swipe everywhere" battle animations, but pull apart the layers of paint, and you've pretty much seen everything from everywhere else.

EDIT: A bonus Single Player game:

Meritous - A fun top-down Adventure game that I picked up a year ago, and still play from time to time. Uses randomly generated dungeons/room layouts, ala Diablo/Rogue, which leads to infinite re-playability. Move around with your arrow keys, and triggering your main offensive/defensive ability with the space bar, while combine this 3000 room dungeon for trinkets, items and exp to bring your character up to the next level, this game must have sucked days of play time from me already.


I hear you on that bolded text. If the games are not short burst games they usually don't stay in my rotation. Even then 9/10 they have to be games I can play with friends or family or they just won't stay installed.

Dragonica, I have seen before. Cabla I heard of but never seen it and the last is new to me. Going to post these.

this thread is epic, and awesome. When my sister get's her new computer I've been prepping bookmarks so I can install some decent games on there for my nephews. I love them but they're so clueless they play flash games at some site they call miniclips and no matter how I try to explain can't seem to reconcile some flash version of Smash Bros vs the real thing.

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

Check out the first page of this thread - Every game is listed by genre and in alphabetical order.

Tribes - Yes

Betrayal at Krondor - No - Not sure if it still works with XP and up but I will check.

So I finally got my Search Bot to only send me emails about freeware games that have no spyware, toolbars or require purchase....it just belched a mother load of games I never heard of....at first glance they seems too awesome to be real.

For those of you that never used it before try www.searchbot.com - It's free and a great way to save time on the internet looking for your interest. When it finds what you want at the amount you want it (I do 20 finds per email) you then get an email with the links to what you been looking for.

*shakes his head* Crazy and awesome little widget. I mean I knew it was awesome before but....GOD DAMN!

Just played voxelstein and really enjoyed it. Wolfenstein 3D is probably my all time favorite game and this variation just adds to the fun.

I play that game for a bit. I can only play that game on a TV and/or projector when I try to play it on a monitor I get seasick.

It is a good game.

I'm surprised Shin Megami Tensei: Imagine hasn't been mentioned. It's an MMORPG brought across the pond by Aeria. It is microtransaction based like most (all?) of Aeria's games, but I've never felt that not buying stuff has hindered gameplay.

Going to check it out. Thanks for the tip.


EDIT - Is this the same game under another name title - MegaTen?

EDIT - EDIT - I did play this game before. It's very pretty but the distance that had to be walked btw quest were super long...at least for me. I will post it for others to take a gander.

CrimeCraft, holy crap I've heard a bunch about this game. Currently downloading it, and would post my thoughts about it after a couple of rounds.

I've noticed that the monthly fees were a bit reasonable ($5 for basic, $10 for "premium"), and seeing that the free version is a glorified trial, but I'll give it a go nonetheless.

I played it and liked it a lot. If I had more time I would dive into it, form a clan and go into the tier battles with other groups.

Can You Run It?

What it does

This site provides a One-Click solution that looks at your computer's hardware and system software to determine whether or not your current system can run a product. Each of your computer's components is evaluated to see how well it meets the minimum and recommended requirements for specific products. Recommendations are made on how to update or upgrade each component which does not meet the listed requirements. Sometimes, a simple, free software download is all that is needed. Sometimes you'll find that you need a different video card to fully experience what the game has to offer.

Megazell's Comment - This website is ideal for those of you with current rigs that may need a small change or upgrade to play the game of your desire. Currently, the list only covers commercials games. When building new rigs or check out rigs that are donate to the center this site saves me a lot of time. Don't just rely on it by itself sometimes another review of the game or product you are looking for is needed to get a better overview of your options

Software Spotlight

JoyToKey

This software is a keyboard emulator for joysticks.
It converts joystick input into keyboard input (and mouse input).

Use it when you want to control an application with joysticks that doesn't support joystick input. If you wish, you can control even Word, Excel, etc. with joysticks!

Megazell's Comment - Sometimes I take for granted all the little programs I dl and have installed to make PC gaming easier. This is such a program. I been using this one and variations of it for years. It helps a lot when you have games that should have gamepad support but don't. Must have for all PC gamers.

Hey Meg, what is the best free MMORPG on the list?


IMO?

It's between 4 games for me - Dungeon & Dragons Online, Valkyrie Sky, CrimeCraft and ArchLord.

DDO - Is a classic fantasy MMORPG with many many great features. The quest are great, the storyline is deep and the loot drops are very satisfying. Here is what I mean, in the game you start off with only the ability to lvl from 1 to 4...but as you play loot drops. Sometimes the loot unlocks things for your account like more content. There will still be areas you will have to pay to get into but you can go into your settings and take them off your map so that you never see them and still complete all the major arcs in the game. The raids are fun and challenging.

Valkyrie Sky is a weird little MMORPG where your combat is done in the format of a top down shooter. Big plus in my book :)

CrimeCraft is a suave shooter MMORPG that has great PVP.

ArchLord is also another classic Fantasy MMORPG but it's PVP means something. When you do PVP there is a chance during an event where you can become and ArchLord until the next event...Give you tremendous perks. People and groups will pay your tribute just to have you in their teams or groups and for that time you can play as a king :)

Hopes that helped but try them all if you can, If I posted it - It had something good in it for someone.

Yep, I use them quite often. You will find many of my screenshots and vids from their list...the only problem I have with them is that they do not update their info on the games. Many of the game info is outdated, dead or no longer free and they don't find out til someone emails them about.

It's same with me though because I don't look back much on the MMORPGs...I play then move on. Never have the time to play them out. I did spend a lot of time in 'City Of Heroes.'
