I like BF1942 and the various mods. I also like MS Flight Simulator.
Problem for me is Windows doesn't like me any more. One too many re-installs and it tried to make me buy a licence for a legal cd I've had for years. So over to Linux. I may get a commercial product to run the Windows games on Linux and it will be cheaper than paying for a new licence.
My first computer was an Amstrad PCW running a system using Mallard BASIC. The PCW was really a word processor but it did run some basic computer games and I mean basic. I think I got it in about 1984/5.
I haven't got a favourite site, I have many I regularly use for specific reasons.
My favorite software is Acronis (for backup and restore) and Diskeeper (for defraging).
Acronis, $40 on sale, has saved me several times when my PC refused to boot up. In 30 minutes Acronis restored my HD and I was back in business and didn't have to reset anything. I do an automatic nightly backup of my complete HD to an external HD.
Diskeeper cost $30 and does a great job. For instance My Documents folder was taking 50 seconds to open. That's a lifetime when you're waiting. I ran all my maintenance but it didn't help. Called a tech and posted problem on tech sites. No one had a solution. First time I ran Diskeeper it fixed the problem. It keeps my PC smoking. Diskeeper is far superior to windows' defrag program.
My favorite game is the original Silent Hunter submarine game. I got it free from Tucows years ago.
