I'm a rather limited gamer, with my experience limited to countless hours of just a few games (Warcraft II, Starcraft, Half Life/Counterstrike). I've got a Compaq 1Ghz laptop, with 384 megs of RAM but no 3D chip. I will soon be taking a 20 hour plane trip! The plane has a laptop power jack for me, and I thought I'd pick up some games to pass the time. I'm thinking of the following: Alpha Centauri Diablo II Warcraft III And of course I'll bring along Chessmaster and my NES/SNES emulators . I'm looking for some absolutely awesome games that will just suck me in, and make the time fly by (no pun intended). I've been perusing "Best Of" lists from a few years back, but thought I'd also try some recommendations from you guys.
