    Any gamers here? PC I really mean, I am using my first PC in YEARS and have looked at some online game sites, I have a friend who told me to be REALLY careful with some of these ,some are not that secure. So, I am looking for some good safe game sites. Any ideas?

    I'm a PC gamer with Vista. Actually, it's using my Xbox Live account so that I can play with them.

    If you like RPGs, check out Morrowind and another is Oblivion. Online gaming RPGs are scarce because they are typically one-player. I myself am waiting on [video=youtube;2a27gUn6gP0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2a27gUn6gP0[/video] which comes out in August.

    Are you looking for a massively-multiplayer game or just something that you can get online?


    I play World of Warcraft. I allow it to devour my life.

    That game is like crack and I refuse to play it.

    Morrowind and Oblivion are awesome, but they are single player and also very cracklike in their nature.

    The only online game I play these days is Diplomacy. Good for the brainwaves.

    Who hasn't?

    The last Warcraft I played was called Warcraft 2 I think.

    Hello Vaughan, have you had a "crack" experience with World of Warcraft? I looked at the site.......it looked cool!;)

    No, I personally haven't. However, my old housemate used to play it for at least 18 hours a day, every day. He was an emaciated piece of work by the time I left that house.

    It's crack, I tells ye!!!

    Diplom.org represent yo.

    There is an aquaintance of mine that very nearly lost his wife and children over EverQuest.

    That must be a good game............sorry.........bad joke.

    It is a very good game. Too good.

    EverQuest is junk compared to World of Warcraft. It's the best online game ever made.

    Diplomacy is all about domination of Europe. It was originally a board game, but because it translates well to the internet and mail, people play it that way. All about being a good negotiator and being able to stab people in the back.

    Much fun.

    I'm quite partial to Pac-Man...you can devour a significant amount of your lifespan just by reading all the instructions that go with these role-playing games.

    Is oblivion necessarily online gaming? My friend has an Xbox 360 and I play it there, but not online. Anywho, it is fun. I refuse to play world of warcraft because my internet is erratic. I like Warcraft 3, though.

    Oblivion is not an online game nor is Morrowind. They have online updates, plug-ins, and expansions, but there is no online multiplayer.

    Has anyone played Guild Wars? I've always wanted to play it.

    Yep, I was looking for an online site but then realized what you are saying after searching in vain!

    Now I am thinking of just buying Battle for Middle Earth. My best friend loves it.Anyone on PB tried it?

    i got mine for really cheap. its interesting and fun. I like it.

    two drawbacks:

    *given the technology in graphics (e.g., oblivion, warcraft, etc), Battle for Middle Earth's technology isn't great. The graphics are medium.

    *Make sure your computer is fast enough. Mine runs slow. I have a 2005 HP Laptop.

    But I do enjoy playing it.

    Another online game that has awesome graphics is "Dark Age of Camelot."

    2Duo Processor on a 2007 Toshiba Satellite laptop, I think that should run Battle for Middle Earth OK, it has been out a couple of years I think.:up:

    I used to play this and found it to be quite good. :up:

    OK, I have decided not to get an online PC game (my wife thinks they are addictive), so I am thinking about Battle for Middle Earth..........OR, Rome, Total Warfare! Any odeas for a NON online RPG or Strategy?

    Non-online you should always go for Morrowind or Oblivion. The Neverwinter Nights games are also good, especially when combined with the online play.

    I allow World of Warcraft to control my life at times as well.....
    its very very very fun..... but can be addicting...
    but with self control.... its tons of fun
