Not anything like Sims at all, but I seriously love Gunbound (Google it). It's a free to download, MMO. ADDICTIVE. I started playing when I was 17 and I still play on occasion! It's shooting, but it's adorable.
Also, PORTAL. (I'm a computer gamer!) I love puzzle-type games and Portal is a serious "you've gotta be smart to get through this" kind of game. It's basically puzzle after puzzle, but in a supercool way. Portal 1 is pretty cheap since 2 came out a while back. OMG I LOVE PORTAL.
Have you looked at Steam yet? http://store.steampowered.com/ All kinds of computer games there, from girly to war games. Always good deals to be had.
Ladies--I am a geek. :3
I've played many, many (oh. so. very. many.) hours of Sims in my life. However, after my hard drive crashed earlier this year, I never quite managed to get Sims 3 (and all the yummy extras) added back to the laptop. Probably good, though, since I'd never get anything done, lol.
I've played many an hour of Portal, too (LOVE the GLaDOS voice, ).
Lately, though? I've gotten incredibly hooked on Minecraft. My hubby's played it on the PC for a few years, but we grabbed the XBox360 version shortly after it came out...and I like that he and I can play together. And we do...most times until the very wee hours of the morning.
I have to be honest, though...you ladies sure are making me miss my Sim! :/
Courtesy of this thread, I played Sims for 3 hours instead of writing, which I should have been doing.
