    What other games does everyone play? Pretty self-explanatory... I doubt that everyone plays only Civ IV, and after hearing classmates spew about 20 different video games that they are pros at, I am wondering what else is out there. This is in no way an advertisement for any other VGs.

    Personally, I am a part-time loser, so I only play 2 more games, Far Cry I, which I think is the best FPS out there, and WoW, which I like. And I do not understand the stereotype that everyone who plays WoW is a complete loser who will never get a girl etc. etc. I'm not a complete loser, and I have thus far not made any attempts to sell any elderly members of my family so I can get a few more month's subscription ;)

    There's a separate forum for other games, but that is for the general civ community and maybe for some reason you were looking for responses only from Civ4 players.

    I have a decent computer, decent enough for large maps, but I still play a lot of old PC games besides the new ones. I only have 2-3 games installed at any time, mainly to save on resources and because I have more profitable uses for my time; when I get bored with one I just uninstall it then install a new one. Here's what I have on my computer right now: Civ4:BTS, Tropico(the original) and Capitalism 2(yeah I like strategy & simulation games). If I want a distraction from work I check the news, lurk and/or post in forums like CFC, or play tetris

    It's mostly this, Team Fortress 2, and Left 4 Dead 2. Out of all 3, I'm the worst at this game.

    Regarding WoW... Now I'm confused. I thought you play it to GET yourself a girl, since the social aspects are a bigger draw than the gameplay?

    Anyway, here my other favourites:

    Dwarf Fortress
    Nethack
    Master of Magic
    Touhou series
    I Wanna Be The Guy

    Scrabble.
    I like NetHack too but have weaned myself off it for now.
    Currently playing Morrowind again since it killed my XBox before I finished it, and I think it is a better game than Oblivion.
    EDIT: And football manager 2010 but not played it too much.

    Just Civ 4 BtS and its various mods.

    I gave up on the total war series after I was disappointed with Medieval 2. Never even considered buying Empire. I would probably still play the original MTW but it doesn't work on my new pc.

    Last game I bought was Football Manager 2010 but I never really got into it.

    I'm going to go restart Warzone 2100 (PC) after I'm done here. It's probably my all time favourite game.

    I'm going to restart Final Fantasy X (PS2) once I'm done with it. I'm mainly a console gamer, but my interest in any kind of computer/video games seems to fade with each passing day. :blush:

    Big on the strategy games and economy sims:

    - Victoria (Really one of the best historical strategy games to date)
    - Europa Universalis III
    - Hearts of Iron III
    - Ascaron (RIP) Games: Patrician, Port Royale
    - Dawn of Discovery / Anno 1401

    Oh, and...
    - Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - when I need to shoot people in the face
    - WoW - when I need mindless repetitive grinding of ICC for purpalz and frosts with a bunch of people yammering in my ear on Ventrilo

    I only like civlike games, I think the best are:
    *imperialism [1 & 2]
    *Europa universalis
    Also a very obscure game I never heard much about and is ages old and much cooler than it sounds:
    *Startrek Birth of the Federation. [Or STBOTF]
    That's a really challenging [and exiting] strategy game but don't know if you still can get it.

    I hear that!

    I seem to go in a cycle of Civ4 > Get bored and shoot some Nazi's > Civ 4 > Get bored, shoot more Nazi's > Get bored of both, stalk around Crysis shooting Nrth Koreans > Civ4.

    Or I don't Civ for weeks/months then see a Documentary or read history on Wikipedia, then that Civ4 yearning creeps back.

    What have you got against Nazis and North Koreans? (Nazis, I can understand).

    EDIT: I forgot to mention "Hide the sausage" which is my favourite game.
