You're going to hate me for this, but could you add Speed Dreams to the list? It may look (and feel) like TORCS for now, but they're making great progress towards their 2.0 release, and are moving much faster than TORCS to boot!

Thumbs down

I simply don't do games.

I have more fun learning something that is actually useful or intriguing with real world applications, or just reading non-fiction.

Perhaps you could put up NONE, and I could vote for that?

I hope that helps

Kindest regards,

.

If you do not play any game, don't vote, simple as that

Little off topic, exist game that have applications on real world really search for serious game; I played some of them, and are very good. Topic like medicine, electronic, programming, A.I, and I don't know... whatever you can imagine.

Best regards,
John

I have wasted so much time playing OpenTTD than any of the others on this list. That and Minecraft.

I thought Sauerbraten was open source, just that you couldn't use your own builds on the servers. Or was that just Cube?

Many hours of pointless fun to be had with many of these. Wesnoth for me though.
