I have created this thread so those of us who are so inclined can discuss the computer games they play.

I play a game call Stormfall Age Of War.  It is a slightly strategic multi-player castle building and fighting game.

It is free to play and is playable without spending real money. It takes a lot of time. If you are millionaire or simply without any sense of value you can spend money to short cut time. That is how many modern games work.

If you like to try it download the plarium app

https://plarium.com/en/plarium-play/

Choose Stormfall Age Of War from the App
select server "Untamed Lands"

folllow the hints to learn how to play.
When the game suggests you join a league choose Black Shield if you want to be in same league as me [ We need members ]

It can also be played from a Web browser or from facebook. Not recommended the app is much more responsive.

I quit a 2 year addiction to Forge of Empires last August when I realised it was ruining my life  :facepalm:
'You're always on the computer' says my wife.... 'I'm working...' [/lie]  :-[




So currently I try to limit myself with brainless stuff that I can let go.  It's amazing that shit like Bubblewitch 3 can suck almost as much of your life away if you don't have WILLPOWER  :facepalm:
It's a reverse Elvis thing.

Path of Exile for me. Free to play and no play to win involved.

Game is regularly updated with new content.

Elite: Dangerous
Warframe

I have both on PC and PS4, but pretty much only play games on the console; PCs are for work.

Im partial to a spot of Fat Worm Blows a Sparky on the old zx spectrum!

Currently playing Prey on the PS4. Seems to be trying to copy Alien Isolation, but failing miserably. Enjoyable enough, but certainly isn't as scary as Alien Isolation.. Especially when the Synths in Alien Isolation (who look like resusci-dummies) start throttling your game character while saying "you are becoming hysterical"  :o

Heh, I can't play scary games. #2 son bought me "The last of us" for PS4 a couple of years back, and I just can't play it - it's far too scary!

What a wuss...  :facepalm:

Shame as we can’t wing up as far as I understand it as I’m on PC.

Correct - no cross-platform instancing. Same for Warframe - in fact the only game I've seen cross-platform instancing is Fortnite - and that was only after it got all legal and messy.

Where is the best place or way to buy computer games?

The last game I bought was Ultima 9 a long time ago. I know nothing.

These days online seems to be the norm on PC. Mine doesn’t have any CD / DVD drive.
