    I like gaming, it passes many hours for me. The problem is that I only like certain games.

    I like space shooters, I like flight sims, I like driving games.

    I also like games that you can use a gamepad with. I like to game kicked back and relaxed, not hunched over a keyboard with a mouse in hand.

    I have all the usual games.

    NFSU 1&2

    GTA 3 and VC

    Midnight Club 2

    Flatout

    FlightSim 04 etc.

    I have checked out game sites and it seems I have most of the highly rated games on them. I am really looking for anything that is fun to play, can't be beaten easily, and involves speed and control.

    Does anybody know of some lesser known games that are similar to what I mentioned? Man I am about to give it up.:D I'll go buy anything that sounds good at this moment. I am not a big fan of RPG or FPS games. I have plenty that I have never even really started ie Warcraft 3 and Doom 3.

    HELP ME!!!!

    LOL, Have it. But thanks rebelmusic. I am just bored with the games I have and I have allot. I don't have enough hard drive space to load them all. Man I think that is the problem. Maybe I need to go back through them and put a few more on here. I like freelancer. Maybe I should load it and play it again.

    Might just be time for a new 200 gig HDD. :D

    Get an emulator and make some copies of your oldie games and play them on the computer. Instant fun! (This is the only legal way to use emulators I'm pretty sure)

    If You like realistic war games I would recommend the Close Combat series.
    Lots of mods to expand the game play, historically accurate, weapons, squads,maps had many years of fun gaming and you can go head to head online if you want, mainly base on WW2. Would highly recommend it. You can get it cheap on ebay, my best version is the latest CC5.

    Starwars huh? I never tried them. I'll look for them. Thanks

    Michael, I am just not into RPGs of any kind. I have boucou RPGs that well meaning people have bought for me for holidays and birthdays sitting in a drawer wasting away.

    I should sell them before they become obsolete but they were gifts.:(

    you talkin about Tie Fighter?

    i had that and it was a pretty big/long game, of course the graphics were awesome when it was 1994, but that one definatly stuck in my head as one of my faves.

    and hey, if you like driving games, Nascar Racing 2003 season is the only one you'll ever need if your looking for the best driving sim engine around... some great mods aswell.
