    Startopia comes to mind - any level not involving combat or building super-prisons. Botanicula and Rayman: Origins are good choices, too. I wish Sim Life were available on the likes of GOG; it'd...

    I never got very far in Drox, but I liked the demo well enough to buy the full version and enjoyed it for a few hours. It felt enjoyably weird, but this was years ago and I can't remember much other...

    But it's the best excuse to red-shell your significant other / shout at significant other for red-shelling you rather than for complicated real-life stuff. Just don't play it with young children...

    Another vote here for Rayman, at least Origins (I hear Legends is faster-paced?). I'm awful at platformers, but early on in Origins surviving is fairly easy and doing better than just surviving is...

    Startopia has aged well and I think I would've enjoyed it at that age.
    Dungeons of Dredmor could be a good "first roguelike" that's a bit closer to the Rogue template than FTL, but a heck of a lot...

    As MUDs go, Discworld MUD is great if you have even a passing interest in the books. If you've never read the books and don't want an excuse to start, you can definitely get by with a basic...

    I think for me gaming is a bit like reading - while I will do less of it at busy times, and my interests will change, I don't think I'll ever stop completely and permanently, as it's a broad hobby...

    I think I'll wait to see whether everyone falls in love with Elite before adding it to the list (it's supposed to be out of beta soon, right?), but I think it may very well feature. My suspicion is...

    Still haven't played the third chapter; now that I have the saves from the previous chapters copied across from my old computer, I should really get around to that. Cheers.

    Butternut squash works well cut into chunks in a Thai-style curry with coconut milk. Takes a good while to get soft, though, so you have to allow extra cooking time. I like acorn squash and other...
