Perhaps I might recommend Civilization II? It doesn't get more basic than Civilization II.

I couldn't see shit captain, except for character pictures and class icons. All I could see of the start button and all the weapon selection buttons were the four bad dots around them, and only because they were a slightly different bad from the background. :roll: Finally got it started and it was the slowest thing ever. Guess I can scratch that one off the list.

Thats an option, never tried that one.
I would recommend:

-Rise of Nations
-Warcraft 3
-C&C: Generals
-AVP2
-Unreal Tournament (1999, 2004 if you can hold it, not even mentioning 2007(UT3))
-Diablo 2
-Starcraft
-Worms

Im only playing RoN right now, but I have the others so... overall opinion:

RoN is great to play long sessions over the net.
Warcraft is genius, having hundreds of awesome mods on Battlenet.
C&C is kinda basic, so Im just looking for the Rise Of The Reds and Shockwave Mod.
AVP2 is old, but extremely fun to play over the net, nothing like being under the skin of the hunter.
UT. Unreal. Nothing more to say about this lead FPS.
Diablo 2 is probably one of the best RPGs I've ever played. I was hoping to find a party to play with.
Starcraft is slowly dying with its fantasy brother Diablo 2 due Blizzards announcement of SC2 and D3. Yet, I consider SC to be the one of the best RTS so far.
Worms. If you like Brikwars, you like Worms. Thats like a law of nature.

Oh wait, you are bored to death, sorry about that :?

I SO want to play this, but as you all probably know, MY COMPUTER CAN'T RUN BECAUSE OF MY SHITTY GRAPHICS CARD AND IT'S AS SLOW AS A FUCKING TORTOISE CARRYING THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING!

I played Alien Swarm a few days ago. It's just 4 player Aliens.


It goes from super easy to best hard like that though.

Maybe someone should make some similarly good games that don't require state of the ark computers.

Hmmm.....

For those who want to dish out tons of ammunition on assaulting aliens and carry around big awesome guns and armor but just can't cause they don't have a decent cpu or graphic card, I strongly suggest Alien Shooter. A 2D shoot ´em up game. Just like Alien Swarm but way more executable on old machines. Also, the campaign is a one player only experience. A cool game by Sigma Team, also the maker of Zombie Shooter. Alien Shooters undead brother.
