    So, recently I've had a lot of spare time so I am thinking of getting a PC game. It can be for any OS ( not that mac and Linux have games) or browser baser but it can't be too demanding as my gfx card is carp.
    Ive heard a lot about minecraft and wow but I don't know much about them. I'm like pretty much any genre except for sports.
    Thanks in advance

    It could also help if you mention what games you have already, and which you consider to be your favorite.

    Maybe you can try Maplestory. It's free, addicting, there's a ton of stuff to do, and it's not graphics-heavy. It's like 7 years old and in 2D.

    Chances are you've already heard of it.

    MapleStory is good, although I feel there are far too many quests for its own good. Or you can try Runescape. Java-based MMORPG with an interesting economy system. World of Warcraft is the most popular MMORPG out there (and one of the few that still earn its Pay2Play status), although towards the higher levels there's a lot of elitism going on concerning role expectations and raid groups.

    If you like Final Fantasy and Star Ocean, you might like The Last Remnant and Phantasy Star Universe, although both may be quite slow without at least a mid-ranged graphics card from the last 2 years.

    You might also like to try out BYOND, which is a retro-style game developer community with some fairly successful games like Final Fantasy Legends (based on FF4). It's also full of Naruto, Bleach and DragonBall style games, but that's because it's fairly easy to create a game with the Dream Maker toolset and some people can't come up with anything original.

    Phantasy Star Universe for PC/Playstation2 has been permanently (officially) offline since March. I was pissed about that. I briefly considered getting an XBOX 360 so I could continue playing it, but there's no way I could stand to pay to have to rebuild a character and she was only like level 64 Fortegunner.

    PSO Blue Burst schthack server is still alive and kicking though, and I do play it occasionally but my boyfriend lost interest. It's an excellent game that doesn't have high system requirements and it's managed actively by a community. For players of the Blue Burst version cheating is strictly banned and it's not possible to enter games with players of other platforms who are allowed to. This game is moderately difficult without a gamepad though, and nearly impossible if you've always played the game with a gamepad and suddenly don't have one >.> I also never knew how to use the shortcut buttons until a couple months ago though I've played there off and on for years! The shorcut buttons are very useful, basically all you do is highlight a spell/item in the menu like you were gonna put it on your palette but press the corresponding number key instead. Pretty sure you can map phrases or symbol chats to them too, but I can't test that.

    WoW

    Anyway after all I've said about WoW, I'd have to recommend Lord of the Rings Online too because they did go free to play recently (but I don't know if they fixed the Europe distribution issues yet). It is an incredibly solid MMO for a free to start playing game, I had actually bought the game in 2007 when it came out because I was bored with WoW. There's a pretty good post-F2P release review of it on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KVsXEZGJS8 (BFF Report).

    To add to the list above, RF Online has also become F2P (sci-fi/fantasy MMORPG cross).

    Audition is a bit strange because each region has a different selection of music. Of all the ones I've tried, I prefer the SEA tracklist.

    For Phantasy Star Universe, it's still a good enough game just to play through the storyline in single player, even if the online multiplayer no longer exists. Also I used to play the schthack server of PSO on my Gamecube, although I found the sudden spike in difficulty (between the offline and online maps) quite intimidating when I first tried it. At the time I had a few friends who also tried it out with me and it was a lot of fun, but then other games stole our interest.
