Alpha Centauri just as good as Civi II, better than Civi III and probably one of the best games ever made, its as hard as you want it to be with opponents as tough as you want them to be so custom games can go on for several dozen hours.

[Anno 1404 and the expansion pack Venice]() I guess the latest version Anno 2070 might be worth it idk I haven't played it, alls I know is 1404 will turn take up days, I once had a scenario save go on for 65 hours(not in one sitting) before I won. Oh and unfortunately 1404 isnt available on Steam so if you want it you have to buy it from the Ubisoft store :( or find a retail copy bit either way DRM is a nightmare. Oh and before I forget Venice adds multiplayer to the mix so you and 4 friends can share the experience of forgetting what sunlight feels like but don't worry theres plenty of single player stuff to get into.

Dungeon Keeper 2 ever wanted to design your own dungeon lair full of gold that pea brain "heroes" attempt to storm? If you allow it this one will have you spending hours designing the perfect dungeon.

Rise of Nations lets not beat around the bush here this is a Civi clone but its just so well done it stands on its own as a good game. Couldnt seem to find it on any digital marketplaces so I threw a link in for Amazon you can probably find a better option.

Kinetic Void if this kind of thing floats your boat/spaceship then you might find it

Space Pirates and Zombies as you may have guessed it features space pirates and zombies, its a mix of shoot em ups, and rpg, you'll have hours of content to get into before you even get to see the zombies.

Company of Heroes several hours of single player content and if you want you can skirmish with the AI to your hearts content until the wee hours of the morning, It also has some extremely mature mod community thats still getting love, Blitzkrieg adds so much to the game.

Warcraft3 and Frozen Throne's single player campaigns are just yummy, just the right length and full of story that will keep you playing.

I'll try to move away from RTS games, its hard because they have so much replay value to me :P

Dark Souls if you have a ps3 you probably know about this already, either way it aint small or easy, hours of dying from "cheap" attacks from shitty enemies isn't fun but winning because you played perfectly is fun.

(Street Fighter 4)( or its Arcade edition on steam will take positively hours to master depending on your fighting game prowess. You can always pick up a copy on the ps3 if you havent already as the D-pad on the ps3 is just miles better than most.

Rainbow6 Vegas 2, now I'd actually recommend the console versions over the pc version (own both) because cover based shooters are made with controllers in mind, the gameplay isn't too complex but like Dark Souls its extremely satisfying because it can be very unforgiving, features co-op on the same console (unrecommended) or Lan and Online so you and a friend can pick up Vegas2 on the cheap and plow right into the main game but if solo is how you want to play you'll get oodles out of it. Very rewarding game either way especially at higher difficulty settings.

Now I'll stop listing games because my chair just broke.

  • Proteus -- Buy Here -- A sort of zen adventure game where you awaken near an island, and it's left up to you to explore it. If you want. But nothing happens and the game doesn't end if you don't. Each island is procedurally generated, and there are no goals. You just walk around and look at the scenery, and sometimes stuff happens. It's pretty chill, though, and I've found it relaxing.
  • Myst Series:
    • realMyst Masterpiece -- Buy Here -- You find a book inscribed with the word "MYST". As you open it up, you find a mysterious moving image on the first page. You find it so compelling to reach out and touch it...
    • Riven: The Sequel to Myst -- Buy Here -- Your new friend Atrus asks for your help to rescue his wife, Catherine, from the dying world of Riven... (Note: may require fiddling to run on modern PCs)
    • Myst III: Exile -- Buy Here (not available digitally) -- You visit Atrus and his family at their new home when tragedy strikes, and you must rescue a stolen book in a forgotten land. (Note: may require fiddling to run on modern PCs)
    • Myst IV: Revelation -- Buy Here (not available digitally) -- You visit Atrus and his family again, but are knocked out by a small earthquake while watching Atrus' daughter, Yeesha. When you awaken, you find she has gone missing, and must find her before Atrus returns...
    • Myst V: End of Ages -- Buy Here -- You find yourself in K'veer, the place Atrus was confined in Myst and the beginning of Riven. As you explore, you meet Yeesha, who gives you a quest to free a slave race from their slavery...but you also meet Esher, a mystery man who hates Yeesha and wants you to know how she is tricking you.
    • Myst Online: Uru Live -- Download Here -- You (IRL you, not the you from the other 5 games) find yourself compelled to visit the desert, where you discover a near-ancient cleft home and a link to the old city of D'ni...
  • World of Zoo -- Buy Here -- You're a new zookeeper. You create animals, add them to each exhibit, play with them, feed them, and get access to new animals. The end. It's cute and kind of dumb. LOL
  • Bejeweled 3 -- Buy Here -- You know this game. It's like all the others. Anyway, there's a Zen Mode in the game where you can turn off the awesome music and instead turn on like ocean waves and shit, and binaural sounds to calm you and all that. That's why I included this game.
  • Kami -- Buy Here -- Fill the screen with a single color in the least amount of moves. The music is calming and the puzzles aren't very harsh. It's nice. :D
  • Knytt Series:
    • Knytt -- Download Here -- You are a knytt. You decide to go on a little adventure, when you're abducted by an alien! The alien proceeds to accidentally crash on another planet, and it's up to you to find all the alien's spaceship parts so you both can go home.
    • Knytt Stories -- Download Here (levels here) -- The story depends on what level you're playing, but you're usually playing as Juni and something happens to make you explore. This is one of the nicest games I have ever played, as well as one of the most relaxing.
    • Knytt Underground -- Buy Here -- You are Mi Sprocket, a mute sprite living in an underground world populated entirely by fairies and sprites. On a very special day, it is tasked to you to ring the six bells of fate scattered around this underground world...and if you don't, the world will end!
  • Tabletop Simulator -- Buy Here -- It's a game where you can play board/card/DnD/etc games by yourself or with your friends. That can be zen. Here are some of the games you can find on the workshop: Tatenoko, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Candy Land, Cards Against Humanity, Hanafuda, Monopoly, CTHULHU!!, Secret Hitler, Triple Triad, and The Hyrule Fantasy. I'd play a couple games of whatever with you, if that makes any difference.
  • Lyne -- Buy Here -- Make lines between all the colored shapes, but you can't cross the lines! It's a quiet little game with an interesting atmosphere. Also the pictures on all the achievements you can get are boxes with letters in them, meaning you can spell out words on your profile.
u/DHarlequin · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Both are great, but I think that RDR is just a tad better, with tons of random events and side quests that spice up the great campaign. If you're not limited to Gamestop prices and you don't need the GOTY edition, then I would recommend getting it at amazon for around $19.99 with free shipping if you go over $25.

u/sushi_cw · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

Freelancer was already mentioned, and is a tried-and-true classic of space exploration/trading. It's pretty much a perfect fit for what you describe.

Elite:Dangerous is coming out soon, although you may want to wait a few months for some more features and a bit more richness to the universe. It's definitely on the "difficult to learn" side of things.

If you want a game that is heavy on exploration (but without the trading), check out Ur-quan masters (aka Star Control 2). Happily it's free.

If you want a non-space trading/exploration game, try Sid Meier's Pirates!. Not traditional fantasy though.

u/MMMMTOASTY · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I tried so hard to ignore Diablo III, but when I saw a playthrough of the monk in the open beta, I blacked out a few minutes into it. When I came to, I found myself on this page. Unfortunately I don't have enough money at the moment to buy it when it comes out, but I'll definitely be looking forward to playing it when I do.

I understand what you mean about Skyrim though, I've sunk about 30 hours into the game and can't bring myself to play the damn thing anymore (though admittedly, that's probably more gameplay than I could get out of a lot of games these days). There's just too much content and not enough substance in some of these open world games, and for some reason all the decent linear RPGs have been floating over to the mobile market like you said. Just look at some of the JRPGs the DS has to offer, like The World Ends With You (more commonly known as: "The Best Thing Square Enix Has Done In Years") and Radiant Historia (both of which could probably be emulated if you so desired). So yeah, buying a PSP or DS might not be a bad deal.

On an unrelated note, can I ask you a quick question? I haven't played any Zelda games since ALTTP and have been looking to get back into the series for a while now, but can't really decide which one I should jump into. So, between Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Wind Waker, which would you recommend the most?

u/Ravioli227 · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I agree with this. I got the Audio Technia ATH-M50X (Pretty sure I got for around $100 might have been on sale though) and then i bought a mic that you can clip to the wire and its been working great. I found the mic on a post on reddit and it was like $10 on amazon. These headphones don't have the right mic jack so that why I had to do that...but other headphones might be better for you.

Pretty sure this is exactly what I have. No one has complained yet

u/rarelypost · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

HuniePop is a great game, but if you're not into match 3 you probably won't enjoy it since you play a match 3 game and try to match the colors each girl likes when you go on dates with them.

I'd also recommend grabbing a wired 360 controller for $27 at Amazon to play Dark Souls and any other third person action games (Batman Arkham series, Shadow of Mordor, Assassin's Creed, etc.) or platformers. I see you say you're garbage at platformers and that's probably because you're trying to play it with kb+m.

A few recommendations for games you might enjoy:

Tales of Symphonia

Dark Souls

Disgaea PC

Grim Dawn ($12 in Humble Monthly with 6 additional games that will be revealed on October 7)

Torchlight 2

Alien: Isolation

Wolfenstein: The New Order

Borderlands 2

Rayman Legends

Portal 2

u/Bewbtube · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

This is the official microsoft adapter, it's far better than the one linked by SL61.

It will let you connect up to 4 controllers to it and will work with your old xbox 360 controllers if you still have them.

As others have suggested you can inquire and learn to build your own PC for relatively cheap over at /r/buildapc. You might want to make a post over at /r/buildapcforme with your budget and your needs.

If you don't want to deal with the hassle of building a PC and don't mind spending a bit of extra money you can use a service like where you can customize a PC build, place the order, they'll build the computer and send it your way. There are probably local services like this in your area (check craigslist). However, these options are more expensive than just building it yourself.

Finally, I suggest you consider building an HTPC (HT = Home Theater) with gaming in mind, especially if you have an extensive movie/tv/music library. If you're interested in that as well, you should check out XBMC.

u/gekko88 · 11 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

I had several controllers in the past years but none of them was as good as my beloved Xbox 360 controller.

If you want it wireless, you need to buy the adapter and the controller so I rather recommend the cable-version for 27$.

u/Child_of_1984 · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Bear in mind that there are options like this out there that can help the impared with their gaming. In this case especially, by offloading the WASD / Arrow keys to a foot pedal, it makes a lot of action and FPS games doable. I don't know the specifics about this situation, but I talked with a gamer in the past who lost his left arm, and a pedal like that with a mouse like this made him just as capable as anyone else.

u/arnoldwhat · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

Well that sucks. If you truly need to do everything with one hand there are some gaming mice that have a whole rack of mappable buttons something like this.

u/KyuubiReddit · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

for Metal Gear Solid, you can start with Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes on GameCube (will also play on a Wii), then get the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection on PS3 to play MGS 2, 3 and 4.

EDIT: Oh I just noticed you only have the PS3 and PS2. You'll have to get the PS1 version of MGS on the PSN.

u/HellsHumor · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions
  1. Metal Gear Series: 3rd Person tatical espionage series where you go behind enemy lines to sabotage/defeat the enemy. The Legacy Collection is a steal for 49$ and includes 8 games (the later games reward no kill play throughs). Instead of killing choose to use tranq gun and tranq sniper rifle, the game even rewards you for completing it without killing anyone. Even more bonus if you do it unseen. (If you own a PS3 and have never played this you missing out)

  2. Batman Arkham Asylum/City: I downloaded the demo of Asylum before the game came out not expecting anything and being completely blown away by the engaging controls and excellent story. Batman does not kill enemies but rather disables them and stealth is key to survival. There is a reason people talk about this game and it has such high reviews. It is a Super Hero/Comic book game done RIGHT!

u/BombOmbBuddy · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

You may not be super down for another JPRG, but The World Ends With You is perhaps the best JRPG on the system.

u/ser3nitynow · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

I should have read more carefully, sorry.
The PC version and PS1 versions are on Amazon. It's also on the PSN if you have a modern playstation system. For PC, it might work with compatibility mode in Windows 10 (W10 supposedly plays nicer with older games) or by using a virtual install of Windows 95. Maybe DOSBox is an option?

u/Furzball · 7 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

I dont have this problem, just messed with some extra equipment. I suggest

u/UltraFlyingTurtle · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

I bought this one third-party wireless adapter two years ago for 12 bucks and it's been working great both on Windows 7 and Windows 10, with my official wireless Xbox 360 controllers.

It's got over 2000 reviews, but a bunch of the negative reviews are because people don't realize that you have to update the driver. Be sure to read the top customer review which describes how to go to your control panel to the Device Manager and update the driver. It's really easy.

u/vadrotan · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

You can get a wireless adapter to get your 360 controller to work on your PC for $10-20 on Amazon. I got this one and it's worked great for nearly a year.

u/tokenwalrus · 4 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

My only personal recommendation is the Zelda and Pikmin series. Otherwise you can just google for the best games on Gamecube, Wii, N64 etc. and download the ROMs.

This is my recommendation for a gamepad.

u/Goomich · 7 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

> Is a game like "Eve" the only good option?

This is actually very bad option. It's a MMO and you can dogfight, but it's more famous from its massive battles, when server chokes up. Sheeps are only visible from the outside, you control your ship using mouse, weapons work on cooldowns.

Now, couple older (like last century) options:

And few newer: (if you have VR headset (last time I checked it was Oculus exclusive and coming out on PS4))

These two combine space sim with RTS:

Star Citizen does looks great, but it's still in very alpha state. You can get either Squadron 42 which will be single player portion of the game in the vein of pretty much everething I've posted above, or Star Citizen which will be MMO, with mission, trade etc. like: (this one is also with view outside of the ship)

X series:

u/WinterZenyth · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

That's not a thing, sorry. The closest you're going to get is trying to find a gift card for 3 months of Game Pass Ultimate, but those are flying off the shelves, and you can only use them once per account per year.

You could always get them a prepaid credit card and just tell them to use that to pay for it. $60 should cover a year, assuming they are eligible for the $1 first month promo .

u/Blynder · 2 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Actually, it's not available on Steam or as a Digital Download for that matter. As far as I know, you can only get it off of Amazon for $10.

I have heard rumors of a remake though, which would be cool

u/MisterMorgo · 3 pointsr/gamingsuggestions

Buy this one...plug and play, in Windows 8 no less, and works flawlessly

u/ciawal · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

Overcooked, not Overwatch. It looks like you just missed a sale on Steam unfortunately but if you're in the US you might be able to get it here

u/pepejovi · 1 pointr/gamingsuggestions

Not too sure about the quality on those headset mics, but from what I've heard, this is a good one as well as dirt cheap.
