What Computer games do you play? When I mean computer games, I mean games on your PC rather than the Xbox360 or PS3. In order if use at the moment I'm playing:

Simcity 4 Deluxe Edition (I'm absolutely hooked to this, especially designing my own transport systems)

Trainz Simulator 2010 (I seem to be playing this a little more sporadically at the moment)

and last of all Railroad Tycoon 3, I'm currently taking a bit of a break from this as I'm stuck on a scenario)

I'm also in the process of downloading Sims 3.

As you can see my youngest game is almost 3 years old, I've never been one to flit between games and I'm usually pretty loyal to the ones that I do buy. Meaning that I usually stick with them for years and I end up knowing the in's and outs of them.

OpenTTD (far too much), and occasionally Trainz 2004 and Football Manager 2007. I sometimes play Minesweeper to pass the time as well :p

Also, I'm not impressed with you only stating "Xbox360 or PS3". What is wrong with Nintendo consoles? I have four different machines of theirs in my room at Uni!

Football Manager 2007

Blimey - I absolutely love FM 2007, one of my favourite games ever :lol:

I'm currently in charge of Bristol City, doing quite well we are too!

I only really play older PC games, due to only having a CD Rom drive, FM 2007 is probably my newest game, GTA 3 and GTA Vice City are 2 of my favourites, Fifa 2004 still gets a lot of use too, not forgetting Grand Prix 4, still the most realistic F1 sim I've played.

Oh yeah those slipped from my memory, oh well you get the gist.

Ah you play Tropico, I used to be addicted to the older version of it, I would like the new one but I'm trying to hold back on how much I'm downloading onto my computer considering I have only 22gb left on the memory.

League of Legends, Total War: Shogun 2, Railroad Tycoon 2: Platinum, Portal 2, Railworks 3, Assassin's Creed Revelations, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Roller Coaster Tycoon Deluxe. I've not actually been playing much in the way of PC games recently (10,000 word dissertations don't write themselves ;)) but when I have been playing those games are the ones.

For me it's Supreme Commander, Flight Simulator X, Transport Giant and Traffic Giant. I would like to play games like Trainz 2012 but my PC isn't nearly good enough to play this (I'm lucky if I get 0.5 FPS!). That should change when I build my new computer in a couple of months.

The PC games I have played most recently are Civilization V, Colossus (a Java version of Titan) and Master of Magic (running under DosBox).

These days I play mostly on my iPad: Scrabble, iBridge Baron, Ticket to Ride, Titan, McGuire (a clone of Acquire), Ascension, and Imperial have all been played in the last week. There is a heavy bias towards ports of board games. And Ticket to Ride is the only one with even the vaguest connection with railways.

San Andreas. I bought Steam's GTA pack, which had GTA4 and every game before it (except the two Londons) but 4 won't play and to be honest, I prefer San Andreas.

I don't actually PLAY it, I just drive around. Reckon I've got the world pretty well mapped out in my head...

Also there's more than one train line in this game, with underground and overground stations, and freight and passenger services...

Sim City 4 for me too. I have bought the Simtropolis DVDs to add on to it. If you haven't done that - I recommend it. It transforms the game and adds more detail and levels of challenge into it. www.simtropolis.com - especially their network addon mod - amazing.

Other than that, I'm addicted to Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. Brilliant action and atmosphere. I love the whole "sandbox" thing where you can make the game what you want.

Realy into playing Command & Conquer Generals: Zero Hour at the moment. Got a streak of 40 wins to 0 losses on skirmish atm, un-beatable. But the AI is far to predicable, I can predict there every move and on some maps. I found a mod thats supposed to enhance it a bit. Think I might download it.

Other games I like to play include Locomotion (although I havn't been on it in months), RCT2, UK Truck Sim and FS2004. I do have a few first person shooters that I like to play from time to time (mostly the older Medal of Honour games) but I perfer to play shooters on the ps3.

First person shooters and racing on the ps3. Strategy and simulation on the pc!

All single player, don't play online multi any more

I play a fair few.
In no particular order.

Railworks 3.
Trainz 2010.
Open TTD.
UK Truck Sim. (with Sparky's Mod pack)
Euro Truck Sim.
MS Train Sim.
MS Flight Sim X.
And GTA San Andreas. (With Multiple Mods. to make it more fun)

Some of my games are getting on a bit but I still get the enjoyment out of playing them so they will stay on my pc and go on the next one when I replace this one.

When I'm on a break at work I often play Spider Solitaire as I don't have it on my Mac at home.

What is it?

A 20+ year old very basic graphics based game; you have a small vertical rectangle into which drop columns of three randomly generated coloured squares. You use the arrow keys to align and sort them before they contact whatever is below them. If you get three in a row of a given colour horizontally, vertically or diagonally, those three plus any others of the same colour vanish and you score points that way.

The aim is to keep going as long as possible to get the highest score you can.

The game ends when you lose control and the rectangle fills to the top with the columns.

Currently, I have Trainz 2009, UK Truck Sim, GTA IV and Sim City 3000 on my computer.
Out of them all SC3K gets the most use by far, but I haven't used it for a few weeks, TS09 and UKTS get a fair bit of use, but I haven't used either of them for a couple of months, and GTA IV hasn't been used for about 6 months.

I have a PS2 in my room which I use much more. My current addiction is GTA Vice City, and I've been gradually working my way through all the missions in the past couple of weeks when I've had some spare time.

Thanks, so it's a version of Tetris?

You're right, my bad. I just went round and found the points, but they don't lead where I thought, it's just a tiny branch down to the docks. There are different models of train though.

There is a branch to the docks in easter basin san fierro and to ocean docks in los santos both can be found near to the respective stations. By default the points dont change and you can only do a circular route, but there is a mod available here that enables you to change the points.
