I liked "Pirates". But there was this Civil War game that I picked up for Windows 98 that I wish I could find again. It was awesome. You could re-fight classic battles of the Civil War. I had the CD in a laptop that was stolen some years back.

The new game for me is Empire XP, basically just Risk for PC.  Nothing special by any means but it is a classic.

I love the Sid Mier games as well but they take too damn long to play!

WRT Colonization, I have the original, but they made a remake of it!  The game mechanics are almost identical, but the graphics are VASTLY improved as are AI relations.

Tropico is on my "always at hand" list of games I play.

Tropico 3 is out, but I'm not buying it; the music sucks, the game adds things that don't make sense and seem to add nothing to gameplay, and the game still has no imports, so international trade is a picture of hard-core mercantilist philosophy:

http://cavalier973.blogtownhall.com/2008/04/13/the_mercantilist_bent_in_the_game_tropico_part_ii.thtml

Nevertheless, the first game is great fun, if you can find it anymore (get the mucho macho edition)

I got Dragon Age on my birthday a couple of weeks ago and have been playing it as time allows.  Really enjoying it so far. 

I am so close to buying this...the opportunity cost of my buying "Dragon Age: Origins" is a set of D&D 4th ed core books.  Would Dragon Age be worth more or less than a set of D&D books, in your opinion?

Oh gosh, I haven't played D&D in forever.  If you've got 3rd edition books already, I would say to definitely go with Dragon Age instead....especially since once you've got a character going, we can compare notes on the storyline.  Just don't choose a Dalish elf rogue.   :)

I liked "Pirates".

I liked Pirates so much that I bought another copy on the cheap recently just to play through it again.  Still remembered how to dance and how to battle another ship....that is such an awesome game.

Some tips for your companions gift giving:

Gold and Silver bars to the Crow assassin
Magical type items to Alistar
Written works to the pompus Circle of Magi lady
Jewelry to Morigan
Religious symbols to the Bard
Alcohol to the dwarf
Works of art to Sten

Never got to the companion that opens the Champion option. Bet he/she would want the food items. I believe it is possible to have a romantic relationship with each, except maybe Alistar if you played a male. Just don't do them all at once and be prepared for a loss in likability when you dump one to move to the next.

I'm starting over as a noble male human even through I do enjoy engaging in the in-game lesbo relationships. Fun fun fun.

Cool, thanks for the commentary....I'll have to come back and read it, as I'm on my first campaign and just going through Redcliffe now.

One of the best parts of Neverwinter Nights was getting a tiefling to fall in love with me, so I'm really enjoying the relationship angle.   :)

I love tower defense games. Lately I've been playing their Facebook port. It's actually pretty cool, thought it's bullshit the way they tried to monetize it (ie, PayPal them and they will give you more powerful towers, what kinda BS is that?)

That said, the more FB Friends that play, the more virtual coins I get, so....

Dwarf Fortress.

http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/


Most incredible game ever, only no/minimal graphics.

Here's one of the floors of my current underground empire -



I'm currently posting a security squad around a dude who is in a "Strange Mood" and trying unsuccessfully to build a magical artifact in a craftsdwarf workshop. There is the distinct possibility that he will go on a berserk killing spree if he is not supplied promptly with turtle shells. *sigh*

If he goes off his nut, they'll taze him, bro.

I am also building a tower with windows made of gemstones for no reason other than to be horribly ostentatious and attract goblin attacks, only to be sliced to ribbons by a series of traps using razor sharp disks, ala Last Crusade.
