I like Fable as a fun but short game. It is kind of interesting to play. It is X-Box and I dont know if it is available on the PC. I think it is. Look for Fable -- The Lost Chapters. It is a kind of slasher game first person. Lately I played this game demo and I think it is good by my weak Video card lagged once in a while: http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/rise-fall-civilizations-at-war/ It is like a civilization type of game but it is also a first person war game. Each side has a hero and the hero mode lets you play as the leader. It is really good for tactics as a civilization type of game. The Skirmish mode I found challenging when you play the computer. You might find a download somewhere for free. There are some game download sites that might be nice. Often they have trials where you can try something out. I also liked Halo and Halo 2. You might find used copies of Halo. It is an interesting games where the superchief kills the aliens. It can be a team player game over the Internet. My daughter is really into Kingdom Hearts 2 but I think that is strictly PS2.
