SimCity.

Talk about a game you could waste HOURS on!

The game was also funny when you got bored and deliberately put a flood, tornado AND Godzilla on the map.


RUN SIMS RUN!!!!!

I never finished it, though, too hard me for at the time. It was one of the first games I played. Now that I am a more experienced gamer, I would love to have another crack at it!
I remember playing Ultima III, and I think I may have had another one, and back then they came with special books and maps and stuff. Was one of the first games to show a 3d perspective (although it was slide show style). Those games had so many interesting things in them.

I used to live around the block from Lord British's relative, aunt I think, who was one of my teachers in school too.

Trinity
Rogue
Leisure Suit Larry (original)
Duke Nukem (original)

I recently found DN online somewhere and completed it in one evening. Amazing how much you remember about games you haven't played in 15+ years...

Also Medieval Total War 2 has some new excellent mods, including the new Third Age Total War which is a total conversion of the game to the world of the Lord of the Rings.

It's amazing you have this world of computer geeks that do these amazing mods as a hobby, and offer it to people for free. They are all professionally made, stable, and improve the game beyond anything the original creators could have done. It just takes them a few years to do it and test it after the original game release.
Tell them to come out with a legit patch to Black/White 2 then

Are there any newer games that play in a similar manner to those?

Freelancer or Darkstar One are somewhat similar. The genre is dead for the most part. There is also an indie game called Evochron.
