Just rediscovered Battle for Wesnoth. If you like Hex strategy with a bit of rpg, give it a try. It's really good. It's also free and, I think, even Open Source.

I was super in to EVE Online for the longest time... Gave it up eventually, but I feel I'll be back at some point... Nobody quits EVE.

The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series remains my favourite series ever made. They are the most atmospheric games I've ever experienced. I hope to be part of the team that eventually reboots the series. There's no way the amazing community built around it is ever going to let it die. :)

Some friends of mine played EVE for a while. Not sure if they're still into it, but I think I've heard them jokingly call it their "Spreadsheet Simulator" at some point. :D It's a lot of empire management, isn't it?

It's a cofee break roguelike. 10 dungeons to traverse. It's on Android, so I just slide in a few plays here and there. For research, obviously...

It depends on how you play it. For me it would actually be a spreadsheet simulator because I'm not a combat fan. But it sure takes a whole lot of time.

No! Not at all. What makes you think that!? See, look, here's my google drive, no spread sheets here:

...er. Okay I have a problem!

(ps. That spread sheet is sweet, it's updated live every minute or so. So cool)

Haha, well, at least you're pretty organized :D It's amazing how EVE apparently manages to turn spreadsheets into a gameplay element.

Tried it, and can confirm: a good piece of game :]
It's interesting, that despite open-source utility software are frequently as good as, or even better than propertiary ones, in the field of games, high quality open source ones are somewhat rare. Or it's just me, who doesn't encounter them. :D

Anyway, Wesnoth is one of them. :]

And about some more free stuff:

Are you aware the mod "Lost Alpha"? A small team recreated (and extended as far as I know) one of the original STALKER games, and released it for free - don't know how they got away with it legally. Only played it a little, but it seemed cool :)
