  • PC Games Are Frugal Fun

    Once I've bought a PC game (like one of my strategy war games), I never have to spend another dime to have endless hours of interactive fun -- literally for years. It's not the same as DVDs, books and CDs (all of which I have) because those are the same every time you run them. But a PC game is different every time!

    I've got one game that I bought over 10 years ago -- and I still have enormous amounts of fun playing it. Not a boring moment when I do, either.

    How about you? Do you play PC games? Which ones?

    Thank you. I also find Gamefly coupons to save when playing game

      Agreed. I've been playing Diablo II on and off since 1999, still not tired of it. Ditto Age of Empires. Another cool thing is console emulation--I have the complete library of NES and SNES games. I get to relive part of my childhood, for FREE. What a great investment.

        Totally! I have, and play, computer games that came out between 1999-2003. In fact, that's almost ALL I play. I think I have one game that came out in the last decade.

        I have Diablo II and Age of Empires. I also like Pharaoh & Emperor (city building games). Oh! And Europa Universalis. I have the original and, I think, III.

          you are absolutely correct! PC games are different every time,even after completing it you can play it in tough mode,then in GOD mode and so on.
          The strategy games I like are Far cry,Project IGI, DOOM 3 etc. I also Like racing games like Need for speed.
