Looking for some suggestions.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a game to play offline on my laptop. I've got alot of downtime with my job and I'm looking for something to take up that time. It's gotta be doable on the laptop. I guess I could get a mouse instead of the fingerpad but that's more shit to carry around.

I'm open to any genre. I've been looking at strategy games because they take up a good amount of time usually. Sports, role-playin , it don't matter, it just has to be a good OFFLINE game. Alot of games these days seem to be focused online play.


Open to all suggestions.


Thanks guys.

I like Command and Conquer Generals...Jedi Acadmy is also fun. Need for Seed Hot Pursuit is also a cool game. Halo is also fun, so is Half Life. Take your pick

If you have teh Internets, check out iamboard.com and go to games. They have some good games to play...

If you've got a decent laptop you could always go back through some of the older FPS like Call of Duty 1-3, the old Medal of Honor games as well. I've always been a fan of the RTS games like Command & Conquer. Just put it on hard and it'll give you plenty to do. If you're looking for a RPG then i'd suggest Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. I still play that from time to time and I've been playing it for years and there's alot left in the game. And for sports I can sit down and play some Links or Tiger Woods golf for hours.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

Need to know the specs of the laptop prior to making any real suggestions. Could be a P3 for all we know.

Get an RPG, Neverwinter Nights, Oblivion, THE SIMS 1/2, stuff like that.
Shitty thing is you gotta have a pretty "decent" laptop.
Than there's ALWAYS FPS's CoD4 fucking rocks, RTS = World in Conflict was pretty fun.
Good thing I got my Sager back in :-)

most laptops post 2004 or 2005 should be able to play them. just put the settings on low, and even if it looks crappy its better than no game at all. my laptop is from late 2005 and it plays battlefield 2142. just sayin'
