    Random old games you pick up now and again...

    I had hoped steam had saved my game but I had to start Rage from the beginning again t'other day. Still good but it isn't happy running full res with lots of AA - ah well

    Still pretty.

    That and Anno 2070 but with that I find it's merely a matter of time and I don't mind playing such games for hours

    Rogue Legacy, Spelunky and Dungeons of Dredmor - roguelites/likes have this effect on me, every few months I'll go back and sink some hours into them. No idea why since I'm woeful at them.

    Edit: how could I forget Tales of Maj'Eyal

    Europa Universalis, Civ, Distant Worlds. Basically like Saph does with roguelikes I do with 4x's and similar types although these days I lack the time to sink tens of hours into a single game like I used to. Also HoMM, because HoMM.

    Transport Tycoon Deluxe (OpenTTD), Terraria, some oldschool D&D RPGs. Sometimes even a roguelike just as Saph says.

    HoMM3, now this is something I'd forgotten about. Need, now.

    Guild Wars 2ohwait!

    Nah, I don't pick it up too often anymore. :P Jagged Alliance 2 would be high up on that list, as well as the Fallout games (FO1 to New Vegas). Also the Infinity engine games. Just recently completed Thief 1 and 2, still real gems those two. Deadly Shadow's also a recommendation.

    Honestly, GW2 actually qualifies for me as this, I play it occasionally when there's an event on, or when I forget why I quit in the first place - too much traditional MMO, and the bits that got me interested in the first place turned out to be disappointments, bullshit or outright lies. I still play with the guild every once in a while, but that's basically it.

    I love this game but I don't like having to rush to stop being stomped... I like to build up slowly and then whallop. Ah well.

    My Steam Sale backlog... I start a new unplayed as yet game every now and then, rarely complete it and then drift onto something else.

    It can be done if you manage to repel the first attack of the AI (if you're not playing against human opponents). After you've fought off the first wave, the AI usually will not attack again soon, so you have time to build up an army. I agree with you that playing a slower starting race is a bit of a problem when you're facing a zerg rush type of enemy though.

    Nod but troublesome if you have then lost so many points that you can't then build things quickly enough without more capping...

    Dungeon Keeper 2 and Sacrifice were annual pilgrimages for me for years. Deadeyes, reanimation and the James ending. Mass Sacrifice of Dark Mistresses, worshipping skeletons and permanent Horned Reapers.

    Have to say helio - always kinda freaky/cool when you post in here - you're such a presence on the main blog/front page with that avatar... It's almost like when you realise you're playing a steam game with one of the hive controllers! Not quite as awesome as that though sorry

    Mechwarrior2 because of the atmosphere.
    GTA1 because it's insane and unfair.

    I have generally only played MMOs since my introduction back in 2003, that being said I do occasionally go and play LOTRO and SWTOR until the lack dodge annoys me. I also play a little Minecraft on a friends server but once I've built my house I'm bored again lol.

    ahhh minecraft, I toyed a while ago using the quarries and teleport chests and built myself a monstrous self sorting, grinding, smelting and sorting system - before it was cool.

    Guild Wars 2, really. Also, when there are big patches, Terraria, Minecraft, Space Engineers. Thief and Mirror's Edge too, Those are two games I hold very dearly.
