Any one else have a "time waster" game they play on their computer?

I have this thing for four-suite Spider solitaire. Probably won fewer than 10 games in five years, but I keep coming back for more. I especially like it because it takes no resources and uses no critical files, so I can play it while things are installing or updating.

I'm also a big Cubis/Cubis2 fan.

So do you have time to waste? :D

I play CivIV if I have more than a few minutes or a quick game of Hearts otherwise.

A game called "Icy Tower" :D

If you have not heard of it, it is just a game where you have to jump up a tower really fast and each level makes the camera go faster and faster. If you fall, you die. It is a fun game :), you can download it free, its only like 500kb too. I think... well, if you want to try it I can provide a link? :)

Sure. Thanks! Maybe we should start a thread about good flash games?

Aren't games in general just time wasters? Or are you talking about "casual" games?

I have a lot of emul....errrrr...freeware on my computer. :D

In all seriousness, there's a nice, free platformer called "Cave Story" I really enjoy. Anyone heard of it?

Yes, isn't it a boy that's exploring some caverns and civilizations?

If yes, that game rocks :)

I don't play time-filler games on my PC. I use Photoshop or I muck about with a bit of editing software

If I want time to vanish, then Sims 3 is what I pop in. It goes so fast for me when playing that game! :eek:

Worms 2 used to be my biggest time waster. Until I got a Vista computer, that is, because then I found out I couldn't play it anymore. I guess now my biggest time waster is Minesweeper. Great.

Fallout3. Whenever I am bored, I launch the game and roam the countryside with my Gauss, knocking down all in my path. In fact I am doing it now on another PC (paused right now of course) as I type this.

Now that's what I call multi-tasking. :p

Funny how you say that and yet you're a member on a Tomb Raider forum.

...and?

...your point is?

My point was pretty obvious, but let me put it in Laymen's terms; You claim that video games are time wasters and yet you're a member on a forum that praises a video game franchise.

Bravo, you've gotten so sharp lately. I'm glad you could see the irony.

On what planet do you spend your time? There was nothing ironic about it.

Oh, you aren't as sharp as I initially assessed. A dictionary might help that.

Same here. Especially when I first got it. I'd play it for a bit and then be like "Oh my, twelve hours already?"

Sims 3. I can play that for ages.

Also a game called 'Eggos Kitchen' It's a lame shockwave game that I am totally addicted to. :p
