    Give me some really good game titles for the PC. Preferably free but paying also works. I do NOT want first player shooter. (I'm a girl. And I play wolf team [​IMG] ).
    I want it to be multiplayer and online. Thanks.

    Anno 1404/Dawn of Discovery (in US) is a great city-building, ship-fighting, good-trading game. It has no multiplayer, but the earlier game in the series, Anno 1701/1701 AD does. The two games are basically the same but 1404 has more production chains (eg: Paper Mill+2x Woodcutter's hut+4x Indigo farm+2x Printing house=books that classes need/want) Beware you need a fairly beefy graphics card to play this satisfactory. Integrated GMA 950 won't work for either Anno games very well.

    Peggle/Peggle Extreme (Extreme is a free 10 level version of Peggle free from Steam that is Valve game themed, so there are Half Life levels, Team Fortress levels etc) is from the same developer as Zuma. You shoot balls at bricks to get the orange bricks to disappear. This game'll run on any graphics set.

    [​IMG]
    TrackMania Nations Forever is a free time trial racing game (you can race against others, but there is no collision between cars so the main focus is times) that's a lot of fun if you have a controller. It's very scalable too, it'll run good on even the crappiest integrated graphics, like the GMA 950.

    [​IMG]
    Zuma/Zuma Revenge are both fun shoot-balls-at-other-balls-to-make-them-disappear-before-they-move-to-the-hole games from the developer of Peggle. It sounds boring but really it's quite enjoyable. This game will run on any graphics set.

    Good, free, NOT FPS?

    Try Spelunky. It's fiendishly amazing; however, it isn't online multiplayer.

    I'm at... 264 deaths... and 0 wins... but I keep going back for more.

    Aww... No FPS D=

    Too bad... Consider them still... xDD.

    Hmm lets see now... Why not...
    - Maplestory (lulz. MMORPG)
    - Cabal (another MMORPG)
    - 2Moons (MMORPG)
    - Fiesta Online (MMORPG)
    - Rumble Fighter (Sorta like an arena fighting game, but is MMO)
    - Call of Duty 4 (I highly recommend, even if you don't like FPS)

    And that's all I can think of atm...

    Well, I don't want FPS. I'd like example umm... Adventure or Tycoon games. Preferably free, but paying also works [​IMG] . So don't come up with stuff like building armies and stuff. I am a FEMALE people. [​IMG] Oh ya and preferably multiplayer too.

    Tycoon games??? Look no further than Transport Tycoon Deluxe. There's a project that brings better support for current Windows systems. (OpenTTD @ www.openttd.org) You'll need the full version of the game to apply the OpenTTD 'patch'.

    I think there is multiplayer support, but I've never played it that way.

    The best PC game in the world is Everquest 2. It takes a lot of time but there are a lot of girls that play it.

    I have fallen in love with Battlestations: Pacific. it's a real time strategy with excellent graphics, and what sets it apart from other RTS's is that not only can you order your units around, but you can jump in and take control of ANY of your units: Submarines, any ships, and planes!

    the only drawback is that it's another WWII game... but it's is soooo fun ^.^

    No offense, but that looks like a really boring tycoon game. :S I got roller coaster tycoon 3 platinum edition. I'm addicted to it. And the graphics are WAY better. You know, that kind of stuff [​IMG]

    None taken! I know it's a bit of an oldie, like me. Actually, both Roller Coaster Tycoon and Transport Tycoon are the creations of the same Chris Sawyer. At least RCT 1 and 2 where. RCT3 he just "consulted" (according to Wikipedia).

    Hope you're having fun [​IMG]

    Oh, okay. You don't actually want good games, you just want something pretty.

    Check out Aion, it's an MMO that runs on the Crytek engine. Steam is pretty much bigging it up at the moment saying it has "unmatched visuals" for an MMO.

    These might be a little old. Also, try all the blizzard games, they are all very great regardless of age. Hell, starcraft still has thousands of players.

    Hey CMON! [​IMG] I went to the site and the first thing I saw is an evil princess with wings holding an axe. It's so like world of warcraft, which is, unfortunately not my style.
