What PC games will I like? I like X, so I'll probably like Y

by jennyinjamaica / April 14, 2009 5:22 AM PDT

Ok, die-hard gamers.... I have spent many enjoyable hours playing games on my laptop, but have gotten out of the habit. Over the years I have enjoyed the games I've listed here, but I haven't bought a new game in nearly two years.

I don't mind a little learning curve, but don't want to have to get a Master's degree in gaming before I can start playing. I just don't have as much time as I used to!

I don't like shooting games. I do like playing god and having fun with the little people below!

I enjoy playing to goals if I feel like it or just sort of playing aimlessly if that's my mood. I've never been one to want to "finish" a video game.

What's fresh and new (or old and outdated but still fun) out there that you think I'd like?

I loved:

The Sims (original)
The Sims 2(+ many expansion packs)
SimCity (I think I played up to v3)
Black&White (original)
Tropico (original)
Second Life

I enjoyed:

Roller Coaster Tycoon
Other Tycoon games
