The game I keep coming back to is Civ. I've been playing the series as they came out and I like nothing better than to start a campaign and drop-out for hours and hours. I love tactical/strategy games.

I played Asheron's Call for a long time, then WoW and I'm in my wife's alliance in Guild Wars but I haven't really been active.

I'm a PC gamer too and I would love to find a good space-based MMORPG or space tactical game. Currently I know of no space-game that has both ship building like EVEonline AND first person exploration (non-ship avatar). EVE ONLY has the ships you build and that is your permanent avatar. (that's pretty crappy!) I want to take a ship, land on a jungle-world, get out of the ship with a blaster rifle or w/e and take a look around. Someday...
What a strange thing it is that to give proof to the lie that a god is love, one need only to resist coercion

I was under the impression they couldn’t sell R rated games here, we can just order stuff from NZ games websites. People I work with have done this in the past and haven’t had customs come knocking on their door.

In any case, Fallout3 is MA15+ in Australia, so go forth and slaughter… http://www.gameswarehouse.com.au/longpa ... meid=15794

My husband is absolutely obsessed with video games. He loves Call of Duty WaW and Resident Evil more than any of his others. I liked to play Oblivion and Little Big Planet when he had is PS3, but he traded it for a 360 so I don't play anymore.

Oblivion's only good on the PC. Glenvar castle FTW!
