If you were to see the games on my computer, they would consist of old games, alot of demos, freeware games, and...um...Half-Life 2. HL2 is the most recent PC game I have.
I found Civ 3 a month ago for $0.47! Ofcourse this was on Amazon.com, so it actually cost about $5 to buy because of shipping and handling.
The game is very addictive. I've always thought how great a game about conquering the World would be, I'm suprised I've never played any of the Civ games before this. I know that Conquering the world isn't the only way to win a game of Civilization 3, but it's my favorite method[smile].
I usually play the game by building up a massive invasion force and pretty much destroying everybody else. However, I was playing on the easiest difficulty before, where all your enemies are weaklings who can be conquered very easily. Now I'm playing on normal and fighting a tough war with the Chinese!
It's interesting because the game feels like you're playing some sort of virtual board game, which is something I've always thought is a good feel for a game.
So yeah, I'm going to get Civilization 4 soon. The first step was finding out if it worked on my computer, and it does(judging from the demo). However, I believe it does run slower on my computer than it should.
On a completely unrelated note, I am starting a new game project. It will be 2D and in space. That is all I'm going to say, because talking about my game ideas before I actually start implementing them seems to be a fatal flaw. So that's about it, screenies should follow soon.
