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...

Apparently there's a retro gaming convention called Back to the NERG (north-east retro gaming), which will be held in June in Gateshead, just south of Newcastle in the UK. It's been...
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...

Cheers Alms! I *nearly* went and checked, honest. ;-)

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...

My landlady admitted last week that she wasn't coming back for her huge modern television that I would never have spent money on, so I bought a HDMI cable and hooked up the laptop plus controller. ...

So far I have:
South Park: The Stick of Truth

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.
Worth getting it somewhere (if you're going to play it). GOG has a few extras but nothing very exciting, having bought it there some time ago.
Any chance you're a fan of Samuel Beckett?

Apologies, I should have used a different word. Will fix.

Discworld MUD has / had a good community and is actively moderated by humans (I can't promise the community is still there, but I'd be shocked if the moderation had stopped). There is a bit of...

Playing Knock, Knock. Wow. (Also, aaagh!)

Sokobond is a nice puzzle game, but it's only slightly more connected to chemistry than Spacechem. Its early levels at least are a lot easier than Spacechem. Influent is real language learning...
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...

There's a Unity demo on the dev's website.
My boyfriend and I quite enjoyed it in couch "my network's better than yours" play, but haven't played for a good few versions. I don't think anything...

The only game I can think of that does (or is said to do) what you are talking about is Darklands. I have still not got into it properly; it's very old-school, but I'm told it's worth the effort. ...

Glad you... liked it? by the sounds of things. I went through once without the voice-over (sound off, so I can't say about the music), extremely thouroughly, and I think I'm still missing one or two...

Made it through To The Moon at long last (with one character - I think I remember talk of there being a difference depending on which scientist you choose). It's emotional in a good way, but I...

Another vote for Not the Robots here. I don't imagine I'll ever progress very far, but I like its quirkiness. The idea of controlling a robot that has to eat the furniture it also needs for cover...
