I do not think the gentleman would like Furcadia, internet connection or no. It is basically a graphical MUD for furries. :(

No matter how nostalgic I get, MUD's will never be on my hard-drive again. Ever.

New idea: Microsoft's Combat Flight Simulator, or the regular one...

Edit: Wait, did we find out if he has internet access or not? If so, you probably can't go wrong with an MMORPG if you want replayibility. I'd suggest something not as cliched, like Anarchy Online over Everquest.

First, the furry element is incredibly easy to ignore, really. And it's not really a MUD/MMORPG, more a chatroom with isometric graphics, incorporating a map editor and map scripter.

If it doesn't have to be Real Time (and assuming you can get an internet connection there), a rather nice online strategy simulation is Hyperiums (www.hyperiums.com). It doesn't have any graphics whatsoever (apart from applet-generated maps) and works in 'ticks', that is, combat, movement etc. are calculated every two hours or so. It's rather poor in detail, but once you get involved in an alliance, the game may become pretty interesting.
Free accounts are limited, and full membership costs 1$ a month, but many players will sell you time credits for game cash.

The Q reccommends Escape Velocity Nova and Deimos Rising.

That is all.

EV Nova, yes, absolutely. It's the absolutely best Space simulation I've ever seen up to now (bar perhaps Mankind, but I don't like Real-Time MMORPGs as a rule).

The EV trial trial version is massive. Unlike other such games it manages to retain a deep plot in spite of its stunning graphics. Get it. :)

I'll second that. Morrowind will rock you like nothing before. Nothing for you I-play-every-second-Sunday-if-it-would-happen-to-rain. It's hardcore, sonny, and eventually you will cry like a sissy boy. And surrender your life. Oh yes you will.

Since I always recommend Fredrik Pohl's Gateway, I'm going to do it know. Play it.

And, as always, I will mention that Gateway II: Homeworld, is also a must.

If you like strategy -- Starships Unlimited is pretty good for a 4x game. It is at http://www.apezone.com .

I would agree with all of the games mentioned but someone forgot Unreal Tournament (the first one) and Unreal Tournament 2004 do NOT get UT 2003 under ANY circumstances
Also Battlefield WW2 and Vietnam both very good. :mad: :mad:
:D ;) :D ;) :eek:

Beware of people who use more than 3 emoticons in a row for little apparent reason, especially concerning game reccomendations. It is not unlikely that the emoticons are a direct result of their gaming habits, if you get what I mean. :P

Edit: Just to clarify, this is not meant as an argument against any of the games suggested above. I was merely making fun of the Emoticons. I'd have probably said the same if he were suggesting Blades of Exile and EV Nova.

Hey, UT2K3 was fun.

Still, with 2K4 out, I don't see a pressing reason to get either earlier one if you're just getting one.

Yea, UT2k3 was fun, but there's absolutely no point now. 2k4 is even pretty cheap.

Also, no, Battlefield: 1942 is not that great, in my opinion. You're better off playing UT2k4 if you want vehicles. I've never played BF:Vietnam (for obvious reasons), but I can't imagine it being any better than '42.

Don't think so, but it's irrelevant (see first post).

Why are we even talking about non-SW games? All a true gamer really needs can be found in the demo of Galactic Core...

Also, I don't think Civ 3: Complete is out for Mac yet, based on this page.

Wow, Bobo! What's causing you to double post all the time? :confused:

Also, he might like this game, but it seems like it picked up little support here.

How about http://www.shrapnelgames.com . I have been looking at trying Space Empires: Star Fury . I am cheap so I haven't put any cash down yet. Any thoughts.
