I am curious to see if most people here are diehard adventure gamers or not. I am wondering what other types (if any) of PC games you people play. I enjoy adventure games alot but, I do play other games. I also enjoy simulation games a great deal. I play Grand Prix Legends (THE racing simulation game), Formula 1 2001, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002, Motocross Madness 2, Rally Trophy, Nascar Racing 2002. Can you tell that I like racing games? smile
What other types of games do you like to play?

I enjoy a good rpg or action game if it's not too bloody. I'm pretty sensitive to that stuff, so try not to buy games that mention gore.

One of the first games I played years ago was Xeen, and that was fun. lol

Playing "World of Warcraft", "Oblivion",and "Silent Hill 2"

I play mostly adventure games..... I do have most of the "You Don't Know Jack" games, as well as several "board" games like monopoly, sorry, scrabble, etc.... and some educational games, too....

I have The Sims, but have never installed it... Is it really that good? If it is anything like Theme Hospital, it would probably be too confusing for me... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />

You must install The Sims right now laugh It is more fun than you can imagine and it really is not difficult to play. As a matter of fact, the game has a built-in tutorial that explains everything. Just mess around with it and you will be having a great time.

My favorites are adventure games but I'm slowly getting into RPGs (I think I have around 20 right now) and I have about 15 action/adventures that I hope to get into but my reflexes are crummy so no telling how I'll do lol

I tend to classify puzzle games (like Pandora's Box) along with adventure games for some reason, but if you want to count them separately, then I play those two kinds.

The only non-adventure type game I play is Diablo....

I have never played anything but Adventure games.
Hard enough to find the time for those, now that I'm BAAGing more rolleyes I've been tempted by Vet Emergency just to see what cases they have, but as I told my associate, we could spend the night at our local Vet Emerge and see the real thing without the cost laugh

Other than Adventures, I sometimes play stratagy games like Age of Empires. I've played The Sims, but not recently. (I actualy found a web site where you could download sims that look like the cast of the Sopranos!)

I also have a baseball game I liked to play , but it's DOS based and won't run on my XP maching. I'll have to check the bargain bins for a more recent one.

I play some online games too, like Backgammon or Literati (similar to scrabble) on the Yahoo game site.

I play mostly adventures.

Occasionally I also play puzzle games like the Jewels games, Puzz3D games, Pandora's Box, Bejewelled, Alchemy.

I've played a few action/adventures, but generally only try those with a god mode and those that seem to have something more interesting to offer than running around in a dungeon or spaceship and shooting things. Deus Ex and No One Lives Forever are on my todo someday list. Does anyone know if Anachronox has a god mode or a restore all health cheat?
