|Favourite Play By Mail Games:|
- Beyond The Stellar Empire, an open-ended
space-opera game run by KJC
Games in the UK. While I am no longer playing it, it's
an excellent game.
- Quest, an open-ended fantasy game also run by KJC
Games. I used to play in game 6.
- Super Vorcon Wars, the first PBM I ever tried, so I
guess this is sentimental :), anyway, it was a great game ...
|Favourite Computer Games|
- Xpilot, an X-based multiplayer fast-paced (mostly)
game of strategy, skill, reflexes, and, most of all,
educated luck. Haven't played this for years though.
- Doom, an old game of blood, murder, mayhem,
and many a good laugh.
|Favourite PC Games|
- The Longest Journey, one of the best adventure
games to ever hit the market.
- Doom ... say no more ...
- System Shock I & II, the first of which, for me,
redefined the FPS genre and the second of which delivered
more of the same excellent gameplay.
- Thief I & II, which finally drove home the point
that FPS can be so much more ...
- Deus Ex, an excellent FPS following in the
footsteps of System Shock and Thief.
- Europa Universalis, a much appreciated break from
the row of mindless so-called strategy games we have seen
over the last years.
- Commodore 64 games I play using a C64
Emulator. Takes me way back to the good old days ...
|Favourite Board Games|
- Settlers of Katan, from MayFair games, is an
ingenious little game with lots of player interaction. It
is surprisingly simple, non-violent and fun.
- Titan the Arena, not to be confused with
Titan (not the Arena), is more of a card game
than board game, but it's fun nevertheless. And, no,
it's not a trading card game.
- Junta, a game of politics, deceit, backstabbing,
swiss bank accounts and assassinations.
- Enemy In Sight, a simplistic card game where each
player controls a fleet of armed sailing ships.
- ... and just about any game that has any potential of
being fun whatsoever ...
