    I have played and enjoyed many of Matrix Games' games, although their pricing policy is generally quite absurd - the reason their games are so niche is because they set the prices so high, not...

    Systems have security ratings. I suppose it's possible that it may have increased to high in that system? Check it out in system view.

    MUDs of all sorts sound like a sound bet. I particularly enjoy roleplay-enforced, permadeath ones. Regular hack and slash is probably better if you stand to be distracted on a routine basis, though.

    Childcare. I work in a boarding school. No tiresome labour to speak of, unless occasional things like moving furniture or standing on a rugby pitch calling such sage advice as "numbers right" count.

    Circumstance-- the job I have and where it's located-- dictates that I'm generally isolated from friends (and family, I guess, but I have no wife or kids) at least five days a week, with no choice in...

    Endless Space is drab and soulless. Deus Ex: Human Revolution has a lot that feels like drudgery, and I got bored of it before I finished it.

    I'm terribly long-winded, I know.

    Ancient Space is distressingly mediocre. I'm going to keep going at it, but it feels like a lot of squandered potential, which is sad.

    I keep bouncing off Endless Legend. I strongly suspect that...

    FreeSpace 2 was mentioned up above, but the standalone game Diaspora probably deserves a mention there as well. It's built using FreeSpace 2's source code, but none of its graphical or audio assets,...
