What games are installed on your computer right now?

Postby Keith » Tue Sep 06, 2011 5:36 pm

It's getting a little dull around here, so here's something to spark a little activity.

What game(s) do you currently have installed on your computer right now?

(Only list the game(s) you currently have installed.)

With my personal PC still acting up due to a bum power supply, I haven't been doing as much gaming lately. I still have all my usuals installed even thought I haven't played most of them in six months since my problem started.

The games I currently have installed on my computer are:

Caesar III
Pharaoh/Cleopatra
Zeus/Poseidon
Emperor Rise of the Middle Kingdom
Children of the Nile/Alexandria
Caesar IV
Star Fleet Command II (ship-to-ship space battles)
World in Conflict (I manage to play this in the hour or so each day my system manages to work. WWIII genre, the Soviets invade the U.S. and Nato countries in 1989.)

Since it's not "installed", I did not include Children of the Nile Online.

OK, I'll play...
Mine is not so much different

Caesar 4
Caesar 3
Pharaoh/Cleo
Emperor ROTMK
COTN
Civ City:Rome

None of the others match up to these so haven't installed them.
I don't have Zeus, but I might get it one day soon.

Gotta go: Crucial Euro football qualifier for England starts in a few minutes

Dat's the real football BTW ;)

If you need to update your Zeus, you can get any of the patches at the Zeus Gamers Heaven website, or if you really can't find it I have a copy of the patches. If you hover the cursor over the actual ZEUS.EXE file it will show you what version you have installed; that, or right click on the exe file then goto properties, and then the Version tab.

yep, 1.0.0.0 I'll run by and patch it up. I seriously don't mind hardcore though. It's nuts the way games are dumbed down so much now. Still, I was struggling pretty hard with armies coming in and me with no palace. :)

Nighteyes, OMG..............I can't believe you still have M&M and Krondor. I played the those games till I went nuts especially M&M IV & V. Do you have then on DVD or are they still on floppy? I bought M&M (World of Xeen) on CD, but they had too many of the voice overs screwed up, that I sent it back. That was a bummer.

Hey CatMajik,
I bought M&M on GOG.com, nice and cheap and they have set up dosbox start-up shortcuts.
But I have Krondor on CD (it's available on GOG to), still an really good game I play it occasionally, family got it years ago ,currently travelling throughout as much of the game world as I can in Ch 1. :) bit of fun.

Have you tried Torchlight? It's developed by the guys that made the original Diablo and is really what Diablo II should have been.

My quick look at the games I have installed...
Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, Avatar, COtN, SCS, Caesar IV, Torchlight, Duke Nukem Forever, Starcraft 2, Diablo 2, Driver, Street Fighter IV, The Sims 3, Portal2, About 10 more Steam Games, add to that about 15 various demos that I play once in a while. I'm sure I am still missing a few of the ones I don't play often as these are my quick links.
I have about 15 kids games installed for when my family comes by and brings their kids.
I still have SWG, WOW & Forgotten Worlds installed although I do not plan on paying for them again, Star Trek Online, Beta Testing for SWTOR.
DosBox Games: Jones in the fast lane, Phantasamagora 1&2, Duke Nukem 1&2&3D, Jill of the Jungle, Legend of Zelda, 5 or 6 other Apogee games and Monopoly.
I have no idea the overall size being used since I use Windows 7 and it seems to spread everything all over the place no matter what you say or where you install items.

Torchlight being what Diablo II should have been? You're kidding...

Torchlight is a nice game, I've played three times (three character classes), but that's it. Diablo II is completely different and just a great game.

Btw, both are installed on my smaller laptop. ;)

And add Sacred 2, which we are currently playing here. Nice in coop, but even better in the solo campaign.

In May of this year a power supply meltdown forced a new computer upon me. Not that this was a bad thing, I just tend to get comfy and as long as everything I use works, I don't see the need for the newest, latest, or greatest. The pain of the rebuild is now subsiding, and I'm rather enjoying a lean and mean, fresh build. The games that were deemed worthy to be introduced to the new environment:

actively playing:
  • Caesar IV (i don't like the 3D, but it's a new game (to me))
  • AOE-II (almost done, AOE-III waiting in the wings)
  • Nile Online (my homepage, so that counts for something)
  • Spider Solitaire (yes, it comes with the OS, but I uninstall everything else so I count keeping this as an installed game. great time-waster)

not played in years but needs to be handy:
  • Emperor
  • Pharaoh/Cleopatra
  • Sim City 4

Bringing down the servers on this MMO which pre-cu was the BEST MMO I ever played, and lucky you on the Beta for SWTOR :)

I agree it was awesome, it's really too bad that the devs listened to the quitters complaining that they couldn't make Jedi without 6 months hard work. They actually killed the game by making the change so anyone could be a Jedi.
