Hi all

With staying in a lot more at the current time, my version of 'Delta Force Land Warrior' is getting a bit samey !

Any PC games out there, of a similar age, similar simple usage, and able to work with my Windows 10 PC ?

Not a great fan of internet games sites like Miniclip, sorry, just my thing.

Keep safe and healthy

    What sort of game are you looking for, multiplayer or singleplayer? In the early 00s, I was hooked on Medal of Honor Allied Assualt. Soldier of Fortune, Tribes, Unreal Tournament, Deus Ex, Half Life, Counter Strike.

    Thanks for replying.

    It would be single player.
    Watching the guys on 'Big Bang Theory' play their multiplayer games sends me off to my Luddite friendly cave :smiley: 

    I used to have Microsoft WW2 flight sims before I moved to Windows !0
    I would also play Microprose 'Grand Prix' in the day.

    Hope that makes some sense ?

    I'll recommend some newer games as well, but just make sure your PC meets the recomended specs.

     I think the top ww2 combat flight sim at the moment is IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad https://store.steampowered.com/app/307960/IL2_Sturmovik_Battle_of_Stalingrad/

    Microsoft are soon releasing a new normal flight sim; https://www.xbox.com/en-GB/games/microsoft-flight-simulator
    F1 2019 is currently of the 'Humble Monthly' where you can get that game and a bunch of others for £12 and the  cancel your subscription https://www.humblebundle.com/subscription 

    If you are into sim games, I also recommend Euro Truck Simulator 2/ American Truck Simulator https://store.steampowered.com/app/227300/Euro_Truck_Simulator_2/ https://store.steampowered.com/app/270880/American_Truck_Simulator/

    Hi Dan 958

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have a mooch at them.

    Whilst searching for the correct spelling of Microprose, I came across this -
